Protective Case Recommendations?

Unread post by Liquidream » Sun Feb 09, 2020 1:56 am

Hi all,
Like many others (I'm sure) - I can't wait to receive my Odroid Advance.
However, I'm kinda nervous about protecting it in transit (especially the screen!).

So, I just wondered - does anyone know whether there are any cases that fit it well? (e.g. clam-shell, etc.)

(As far as I can tell, there's no official case - tho I wish there were)

Thanks in (odroid) advance! ;)

If you have a case that fits the original go, it will cover the screen on the go advance. I'm using a cover for an old PDA.

Buy a phone screen protector and have it ready when you get the OGA, use the screen plastic of the OGA as a template for cutting before you assemble it.

But know the parts of the OGA will be available for purchase, I plan on getting a couple of replacement plastic screen covers. Hopefully someone will make a glass screen cover for the device.

As far as cases go an oversized Nintendo DS case will likely fit, a PS Vita case will certainly work.

I'm using a small patagonia fanny pack style bag for my psvita slim, and planning on using the same for my odroid-go advance since they're around the same size. I like this bag because it's light and has an extra outer pocket to hold a cable, wallet, etc. https://www.patagoniaelements.ca/produc ... p-pack-1l/

Agreed, I'm also interested how well it fits in that case you found on amazon.

It will fit like on this pic.
Based on case inner size 155x78mm - a bit tight but okay.

Anbernic RG350 seems fit it better (145x73cm), with some space for fingers to easily remove it from case, while it is holding by elastic strap.

Yeah that's a bit snug, I would like to see 15mm wider and maybe 10mm deeper.

I purchased one of these. The 'tight' fit is ok since it's NOT a 'tight' fit. The strap is loose, but it works. (in comparison to various 3ds. switch, and vita cases of similar design) The strap is mounted higher up on the case rather than close to bottom as is the case w/other mentioned cases, which was a mistake IMO.

The shell, well let's say that it's not going to protect against any sort of load. i.e. it's stiff, but still flexible to moderate pressure. It's close to the flexibility of the amazon basics 3ds case.

The pouch part, drives me the most nuts, wifi dongle flying out, and the uSD cards in SD adapters flying out every time that it's opened... one of the worst cases in these respects that I have had, but it does the job.

Has a noticeable chemical odor. Haven't had a case in a while that had a truly noticeable odor.

This is the case in question
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0837 ... UTF8&psc=1

comparing to: (I own all of these, but as noted on last one, not same 'brand' but o.w. looks the same, original product page links to it)
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0768 ... UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NA ... UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01NA ... UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y64N4DY/ref=dp_cerb_1 this one is different, soft case, double sided, plus it's not the one that I bought but looks same, the one I bought is unavailable(bought 7y ago)

I Use a Velvet pouch 14 cm x 9,5 cm, cheap and protective.
Also I Ordered a Glas Screen Protector, there are enough on Amazon for 3.5" Displays.

The Problem with the Odroid Go A, it has many spots where Dust can get into it. This was also quiet a problem with the Odroid GO.

@ripper121 What are you basing the dust problem on? Do you even own an odroid-go (I don't see it specified in your profile)? I've had no problem with dust whatsoever on my original odroid-go, and I'm not expecting anything different in this regard from the odroid-go advance.

I bought such a case:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3298167 ... web201603_
Case: 185 X 105 X 45mm
O.G.A:155 X 72 X 20 mm
It will arrive in a month :lol:

@ripper121
these black frames around the display will not overlap the screen? can't you order this 3.5 inch film without black frames?

OLD PSP slip cases work great and are readily available on Amazon.com for a pretty good price.

I bought this one:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000204418918.html
But remember to choose the option "For RS97 Plus KIII" not the RG350 (is not the way to go).
Is absolutely perfect, and it arrived in 12 days.
Really happy with it!!
