  • Def worth it for that profile and durability.
  • I wonder if there is any way this could fit the SP3 since it is only marginally thicker. I have the original version of this but would love to have Stylus storage.
  • They make one for the sp3 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Do they make phone cases?
  • Yeah I use to buy their phone cases all the time their really durable and slim
  • It's the only phone case I buy. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Tell them I want the Cobalt for my 950/950 XL. Phone accessories for Lumias has long sucked.
  • When I get my 950XL I'll be begging for a case from them
  • Finally, you can use the dock with the case still on the device.
  • Hah, didn't even think of that, that's one of the major reasons I never bought a case for my Surface Pro many improvements in that 1 little docking station, almost thought it was a downgrade to the Surface Pro 3 docking station until I analyzed all it's use cases, it sure does justify it's price tag. Docking station now frees the use of the Surface Pro at any angle when docked, can now be used with a case on the Surface Pro, is now a lot more portable and thus can double as a replacement charger with not just a meh 1 USB port but 4 + multiple other ports, adds another DisplayPort while keeping the uses it's known for (although it now has 4 USB ports instead of 5), and is backwards compatible with the Surface Pro 3.
