    Anyone find any good vertical pouches? I want a pouch for my pocket so the phone doesn't get dust inside.

    How durable is the 920 and the gorilla glass?
    Yes you should. No matter how much you take care, you won't be able to avoid micro scratches. My beloving Lumia 900 white glossy has microscratches that boils my blood

    Please confirm whether the cases mentioned so far are compatible with wireless charging or not. Don't want to have to take the case off the phone every time you want to charge it.

    Really hoping Nokia releases gel bumper cases like they did for the lumia 900. Those fit perfectly and it was almost as if the raised bezel of the phone was designed with their use in mind. The 920 doesn't seem to be the same when it comes to this which is unfortunate.

    Most cases that don't interfere with the coil (metal) should be fine the wireless charging.

    I have the black/red bumper on my red 920 and the white/pink bumper on my wife's cyan 920. We've both been known to drop our phones - she actually managed to go through three different cases on her old Pantech Laser, and I went through two Incipio Feather cases on my Focus (granted, the 2nd feather had the problem with the thin bar breaking). My wife is harder on phones than I am, and our 18 month old... well, let's just say that he loves to grab and run.

    There was a guy in another thread that charged his phone with his wallet in between...that is somewhere between 1/4 to 1/2 an inch, easily. So, a case won't matter unless it is made of metal.

    I am really hoping some companies release the surround bumpers also. I'd love a black surround for my yellow...or the wife is thinking of getting a white which would really look good with a Purple surround. Lots of options, and you could get them cheap!

    I am a dropaholic =P I have a nerve problem in my right hand that quite frequently turns me into a circus juggler with my phone. I have the Speck Black Candyshell case on mine. It works fine with the charger. If you don't like cases, just get handset insurance. I've had good luck with square trade. Extended Warranty Insurance - Extended Warranties - Electronics Insurance Don't buy the hype that if you drop this thing on the cement it isn't going to cave the corner in. Will it work....probably, but it will still look like doodoo too. IMO It's better to buy a case to protect from damage than to buy one to cover it up.

    I had Otterboxes on my last two Android phones and they kept them in mint condition. They do take away the good looks of a phone though but they do provide top notch protection. Right now, I ordered a cheap but nice looking belt clip case and will go "naked" for a while. I'll just try to use my phone carefully.

    I don't mind microscratches so I use mine bare. My 900 was a tank and the 920 seems like it'll be the same.

    I had a wallet case for my 900 that I put on when going out but otherwise prefer the phone bare--especially as sleek and ergonomic as a Lumia. The downside to that wallet case was it picked up pocket junk and with it scratched up the back of the phone more than had it been bare carried.


    I'll just keep my 920 bare-- This phone looks and feels too good to cover up. I have insurance and am not drop / accident prone.

    I won't be getting a case for my 920, but I do think I'll invest in a screen protector. My HTC One V has a few scratches from being in my (empty) pockets, or at least I think that's what they're from. I can't think of anything else that could have caused them, and as far as I know the HTC One V has Gorilla Glass 2. They aren't deep scratches but they still bother me :p

    I can't imagine putting a screen protector on thus phones seamless, rounded, smooth perfection... Hopefully I don't have to come back crying about it being marred by scratches layer.

    It's only a $99 phone. Buying a case that costs 30% of the price of the phone makes no sense. However, judging from his life style, I would suggest him getting a case too.

    I bought this one, fits great.

    Better peace of mind really.

    Doesn't really add any bulk, and deff increases grip.

    I've currently got a cheap transparent gel case on mine that has grips on the side so I can easily hold the phone. I will eventually get a better one.

    If it's that big a deal for you just get a case... But get something tough, like the Otterbox. On the other hand, if you're the kind of person who's going to replace the phone in 6 months then why worry?

    I personally have never bothered with cases. When I'm mountain biking, for example, I stash my phone in my backpack where I don't expect it to get hit if I go down. Otherwise, if it's inconvenient I just don't take the phone with me, but then I don't think it will kill me to be out of touch for an hour or two.

    It took me 2 years to finally get a scratch on the front of my display and it isn't really all that noticeable. Without a case, the sides and back are going to get marked up no matter what you do. If you're keeping the phone for the long haul it becomes a fact of life. And I think the plastic back on the Lumia should age pretty well, certainly better than the aluminum back on the iPhone 5.

    How are the buttons on the side for this case? I was looking to buy this one if the buttons work well. As long as I don't have to mash the living **** out of the buttons I'm good. I dont use the camera button to take pictures either. I'm always tapping the screen to use the shutter.

    Feed back is still good. Easy to feel buttons.

    It's cheap, go for it.

    I love my Piel Frama case for my iPhone 4. I hope so too. Unfortunately I for some reason doubt this will happen.

    This is the proud son of the nokia 3310 !, the ground should get a case to cover it self from the phone. The phone is really strong and can handle daily bumps and scratches , specially the screen. I bought a case and a screen protector for all of my previous phone, but i guess this phone is strong enough that it won't need one.

    After watching the durability test videos where they smash it with a rubber mallet, drop it from head height, and even use the glass side to hammer in a nail....I feel confident that I won't break the phone without a case.
