Hi Backers

In the past month, we have been very busy sending the orders out and tracking the post. (which was not fun).

We have also been collecting feedbacks from everyone. (Thanks again to everyone for their constructive comments.) 

Based on the feedbacks, We have now identified and acknowledged two main areas that need to improve. 

1. Peeling/delimitation with one particular batch, we have identify the cause for this, and we have solution for it.

2. Dent, This was not a problem we anticipated when we first design Rhino Shield. We were so focused on the impact protection and scratch protection ability (the shield actually dont really get scratch but does dent fairly easily) without realised we created a new problem. 

We have now tested a few new prototype, and have significantly improve the denting problem. (Good for everyday uses, however it will still dent, if you use sharp key and scratch it really hard) The new prototype are a lot more durable than the current one. We will soon finalised the design and will be producing a new batch again. (we would like to run few more tests to make sure we did everything right this time.) We are very determine to make Rhino Shield the best screen protector you can get!

We will also be looking to improve the better surface coating that attract even less finger print. 

The GOOD news are,

  • we will be giving Rhino Shield mark 2 to everyone for free. 
  • The impact absorption capability is now 70% more than the current version!!! in other word, Rhino Shield mark 2 absorb 70% more impact energy, and is more durable. 

I will post some test videos with denting test and new drop test of our prototype soon. 

We would also be posting more updates to communicate with you guys more, so please look out for our emails!

Many thanks 

Evolutive Labs 

P.S if you have any comment, we would prefer you send it to our email (backers@evolutivelabs.com). It would make our life a lot easier in terms of organising.

      Mine has passed away! :(

    2. Creator D Johan on August 8, 2013

      One month later, my front cover look good, just a little "rip" on the edge, although my back cover had more problem, i think it's what you call "peeling". It's strange but ur update feel good.

    3. Creator Andreas Ahrens on July 29, 2013

      Looking forward to it, my shield is peeling badly on all corners.

    4. Creator William Fealey on July 5, 2013

      Thanks for being awesome, remember long term it will pay off. You made the right choice :)

    5. Creator Evolutive Labs on July 4, 2013

      Hey guys, just want to give a quick update! we will be running our frist pilot run next week, so we will be getting some more sample to make a new videos after that. I will post a proper update once we have some new videos to show denting and drop test.

      we are really pushing for mark 2 to be release by the end of July.

    6. Creator Charles Vottero on July 2, 2013

      I threw mine out because it didn't stick/peeled off the side of the phone. What a disappointment. The back protectors didn't stick as well. They were static-y and didn't fit well. Wish I didn't order.

    7. Creator Andrei Volkov on June 25, 2013

      The shield is great, but got peeled when was removing dust. Hope to get the new ASAP.

    8. Creator Shyuan on June 24, 2013

      My friend (iPhone 4) and I (Nexus 4) haven't even received the Rhinoshields since the promises 1.5 months ago! :(

    9. Creator Jo nas on June 24, 2013

      this is great! i received my iphone5 rhino shield here in germany, thank you

      thanks guys

    10. Creator Dave Denyer on June 22, 2013

      Great news, Thank you

    11. Creator David Floro on June 21, 2013

      So, for those of us who haven't put ours on our devices yet (mine are for F&R Nexus 4 and iPad), do you recommend waiting for Mark 2? Will Mk. 1 be tough to peel off w/o having damage or residue?

    12. Creator William Bennett on June 21, 2013

      Mine dented and peeled a pretty badly - came on to see who to contact about it and saw the issue was already in hand! Great customer support guys , keep it up.

    13. Creator syed ahmad fadzli on June 20, 2013

      yeay free item =) haha

    14. Creator John Petty on June 20, 2013

      seriously unexpected but totally awesome!!! GREAT project!!!! thank you so much for the hard work you are putting into this!!

    15. Creator Rodrigo Junco on June 20, 2013

      It's certainly a kindness and respectful behaviour on Evolutive Labs part sending us an update. You guys are great. I'll be sharing this with everyone! Way to go guys! I also bought the back shield for my iPhone 5. Should I'll be waiting for both free?

    16. Creator Kimo Koshi on June 20, 2013

      Awesome support for your backers, guys. My N4 shield was starting to peel, but I saw this update just as I was going to report it. Thanks!

    17. Creator Isabel Cupino on June 20, 2013

      Thanks for being a great business!

    18. Creator Farlin Paulino on June 19, 2013

      Thank you for being so awesome.

    19. Creator Marek Zakrzewski on June 19, 2013

      I also got some small dent at the rear shield and some peeling at the edges on front when using on iPhone 4S.

    20. Creator Kiwi Ham on June 19, 2013

      Thank you for being so awesome! :)

    21. Creator Clarence on June 19, 2013

      I have not received my product, to whom do I contact

    22. Creator Adam Wyatt on June 19, 2013

      Thank you! Very professional. I haven't managed to dent mine yet. I do wish the Nexus 4 went all the way to the edge, but I understand the difficulties with the curved glass.

    23. Creator Bill Hutchison on June 19, 2013

      You guys are awesome. I love it, but managed to dent it on day one. Thank you!!!

    24. Creator Riomar Mccartney on June 19, 2013

      Amazing! Love you guys!

      I'm so far loving this shield, but yes, i found this a bit easy to scratch it off, so can;t wait for this new update! Awesome guys!

    25. Creator Irv (deleted) on June 19, 2013

      Thanks guys, best project I have backed on KS to date. I'm looking at you OUYA! Is the mark 2 for the Nexus 4 going to cover more of the curved screen???

    26. Creator spoonofmilk on June 19, 2013

      Thanks for the update fellas... that's good of you! My wife's iPhone 5 Rhino Shield peeled off easily, but we thought that was due to the Otterbox case she was using - I think it still may have been related to that!

    27. Creator Nicholas Greene on June 19, 2013

      I received the original shield for my Nexus 4 (both back and front). The front has a slight dent (I think maybe from a chapstick container) but otherwise I've been very pleased. It would be great if the shield extended a little further on the sides to better accommodate certain swiping (eg going from camera to gallery) but otherwise it fits great with the Poetic borderline case.

      I think you guys are doing a fantastic job in customer service. Transparency and communication are so easy but crucial; you've earned a lot of trust. Can't wait to see the Rhino Shield MII

    28. Creator Michael Williams on June 19, 2013

      That's an amazing gesture - thank you very much.

      I was a bit disappointed with my original shield as while it certainly 'feels' better than any other screen protector I suffered from peeling round the edges on my HTC One and denting on both the One and my N4; this more than makes up for that however.

      Once again, thank you.

    29. Creator Drew Collins on June 19, 2013

      You are awesome!

    30. Creator Raghu Vamsy on June 19, 2013

      Its really good to have, Even i have the same dent issue the next day i placed on my phone and thought it will go but still there and after this news i'm really happy to hear. You guys are great. CHEERS

    31. Creator Marie-Andree Poisson on June 19, 2013

      Great move, even though I personnaly don't have major problems with Mark 1.

    32. Creator xinwei cheng on June 19, 2013

      You guys are simply fantastic. 2 thumbs up

    33. Creator Alexander on June 19, 2013

      That is friggin awesome. I love the shield so far. But I am seeing some dents from coins and assorted things in my pocket.

      But an ever stronger shield with better fingerprint prevention would rule the world. This is the best Kickstarter I've participated in so far. Good going guys!

    34. Creator Chanakya Shah on June 19, 2013

      When do we expect the new ones to come?

    35. Creator Maxim Smirnov on June 19, 2013

      You are great guys! That's how others should work with their backers!!!

    36. Creator ONG YU ZHI on June 19, 2013

      Hi there! I still haven't receive any of my rhino shield... can you please check?

    37. Creator Arabiatta Pasta on June 19, 2013

      You never forgot first backers, Thanks.

    38. Creator Björn Petersen on June 19, 2013

      You are even more awesome than I already thought you are :)

    39. Creator Matva on June 19, 2013

      OK, that's pretty awesome :D Big thumbs up. Luckily, I haven't got any problems with my Rhino Shield on the Nexus 4.

    40. Creator TEN KEE HENG on June 19, 2013

      3 cheers to the Evolutive Lab

    41. Creator Eric J. on June 19, 2013

      Got the original Rhino Shield as a backer and now I'm looking forward to the new Mark 2! Thank you!

    42. Creator Justin Chan on June 19, 2013

      And what do you mean mark2 is free? Are you going to re-send the completed order as mk2?

    43. Creator Justin Chan on June 19, 2013

      The dents seem fine. I dented mine just a tiny bit then it's gone after a week.

    44. Creator Victor Chaves on June 18, 2013

      Still haven't received mine ):

    45. Creator Frederick Yeung on June 18, 2013

      I kinda lost hope on kickstarter after seeing how badly the creator of OUYA response to their backers. They pretty much give a lot of their backers a bad batch and let them be. It's really amazing to see how well you guys treat your backers. I had a dent and didn't really expect much but the stick with it. It's really nice of you to fix the problem and sent us another one with the problem fixed. Thank you very much.

    46. Creator Matthew Devapiriam Emmanuel on June 18, 2013

      I wish it had longer *curved* edges for the Galaxy Series so there wouldn't be a gap between it and casings (I'm using the otter box commuter)

      Using a second screen protector (Spigen Stenheil) to fix that.

      Also developed a dent on mine. Glad to hear we're getting free upgrades to shield 2.0!

      Using two screen protectors

    47. Creator William Hagios on June 18, 2013

      Thank you

    48. Creator Wilson on June 18, 2013

      While disappointed there were these issues with your first run, I'm impressed with the responsibility you guys are presenting by ensuring everybody gets a replacement. Transparency is a good business practice. Thanks, guys :)

    49. Creator Steve Davies on June 18, 2013

      Brilliant move! Way to make us all happy.

      Well, probably not all of us, but you know what I mean...

    50. Creator Jason Vanderlaan on June 18, 2013

      yeah, mine got dented a little. I really appreciate this professional, classy move. props to you guys!
