I think the surface on the other half makes Jolla the most slippery phone I've ever used. Well maybe my Motorola Defy was even more slippery. I have really big hands so it's not that my hand doesn't grab it properly.

If the sides would be a bit "rubberish" it would help a lot.

Simple, but good idea!

Great idea! The sides and the bottom (for people with smaller hands) should have better grip.

My Jolla just slept away... :-(. Still works :-)

Yes please! Because of its size and the slippery Other Half, I am afraid of dropping it. Single handed use is a no-no for me.

Yeah, we really need something like this, the current OHs are way to slippery IMHO. I really liked the silicone cover of the N9, so a OH with that kind of coating would be really nice.

i had a simular Problem with my Jolla... So i designed a protection / antislip-shaped other half:

i ordered a rapid-prototyping model made of this.

as soon as it arrives from the manufacturer i'll send some more pictures.

who ever likes this can have the .stl model of this prototype.

you can download it here (it is not tested so far...):


The Other Half arrived Today!

i Have to admit, that i had to do a little correction - due to i did not think off the phone expanding slightly with its front (rounded front). The Plug for the 3,5 audio can't be used - the hole is too small :-(

but get an impression here:

Very cool! Nice effort!! I can imagin that Dirk van Leersum ( would be very interested in the .stl model :D

Nice case. I have a more low tech approach and put Sugru on the corners of my Jolla. In theory you could skim TOH with this to give a rubberised coating.

I can't see the images. Have they been deleted? Instead of the images, I only see the alt text "image description". Opening the URL of an image in a new tab leads to a "Page not found" site of
