    So I wonder how cases and other device protectors are going to work on Duo (and Neo for that matter). It looks like a clean folding device flush to each of the screens. Spigen is going to have some challenges with this one...

    Wouldn't it just be like a folio phone case? More advanced though, obviously. It'll be interesting to see what manufacturers come up with. A 'smart case' for the Duo that allows you to see the top screen, rotated to be portrait, at all times, could work. It may allow one-handed mode at least.

    folio like case is possible but It will make device thicker & the biggest problem is it's impossible to design a case which allows 360 degree mode ( phone mode ) and also closes flat.

    The outside of the phone will probably be sturdy enough to not need a case.

    Chances are it'll retail for a rather high price. So that alone warrants a case, at least for me.

    That's what they all say, but drop your phone waist high on a hard surface, we'll see how sturdy it is, lol

    If I'm lucky enough to get a Duo, I will definitely get a case for it.

    It would be a sin to put a case on a premium phone like that. You will destroy the premium look. Just my opinion.

    This is one of those "Let's wait and see" situations. I could see this device being a little more durable. For example, because the screens face each other when the device is closed, I plan on skipping the screen protector. The hinge may be the Achille's heel in regards to durability for this device and how does one even make a case to protect that?

    As far as a case is concerned, if that's a must for you, I would wait and see what happens there. For example, the only case solution might be a sleeve thing and you need to remove the device from the sleeve to use it. It might be a situation where the case limits the functionality of the device.

    I don't have a lot of cases where I've dropped a phone. So my initial thought is to just pass on the case. However, now that there's the whole opening of the phone, maybe the risk of a drop is higher. I don't know.

    There are reasons why some say that this is very much a V1 device not intended for the masses. The case situation is one of the reasons this is the assessment.

    With a device of this nature almost any kind of conventional case with either ruin the look/feel or hinder it's operation. I am thinking perhaps the bumper that comes with it (that would really rock in black) and perhaps a protective skin of some type. I normally carry my phone on my belt, (even Note's) the Duo, I am not sure how that's going to work (I suppose if I don't find something I like I can always design and build my own option..

    Cheers,

    I am getting the Invisible Shield for the Surface Duo. It comes with 4 screen protectors. This will cover the device front and back. The Invisible Shield along with the bumper should protect the Duo.

    I ordered the Shield from Best Buy. It should be deliver on the 25th.

    I bought a skin. Plan on using that with the bumper case that is in the box. Curious to see what kinds of cases will be made for this thing.

    Which skin did you get? I'm assuming Dbrand, but which Dbrand skin? Thinking about grabbing one myself.

    Looks nice. Can't wait to see it actually on your device though.

    I was on the fence between that one and the one I ultimately went with. Looks really good though. Looking forward to getting ahold of the Duo so I can actually put the skin on it.
