Now that we are getting closer to production run, has anyone discovered any good candidates for carrying cases/pouches for Cosmo?

That 17,14cm length is going to be a problem, since I really haven't been able to find anything good at least in Finnish market Even "XXL" size cases seem to be too small (typically they appear to have dimensions of with about 14-16 cm width). E.g. this one https://www.insmat.fi/fi/tuote/insmat-exclu...ottokortti-rfid is "only" 165 mm.

Even cases compatible with Samsung Galaxy S10 plus don't work - S10+ is smaller...

Having a window for the external display would be nice too, but not really mandatory, but a quick access+protection are the primary features here. Belt clip is also something I prefer since I don't like shoving a phone down my pocket.

Closest I could find are these:



But if anyone has already found a good solution for e.g. their Gemini (which has same dimensions) that is easily obtainable, please share.

I've never understood why people bother with cases, when they have perfectly good trouser pockets. Cases are for wimps who don't use their device enough! :-)

I carried a Psion 5mx in my left trouser pocket for 20 years; I was always whipping it out to make a quick note, check my agenda, look something up in Wikipedia, play games, read books, &c. And now my Gemini does all that and is my phone and web browser and stuff too. There simply isn't time to faff around with cases when it's ringing...

(Of course, this only works if you wear trousers that have suitably-sized pockets. But most trousers do, these days -- partly because most people have phones.)
