    Bought this case on ebay for less than $5. It took about a week for me to get it from Hong Kong. Not bad!

    The case has a matte finish and does not attract fingerprints at all. It also came with a screen protector, but that was junk. The case will offer some light drop protection in the corners, but the front is completely exposed. The red color doesn't pop as much as I want. I wished it matched the red of the live tiles!

    In conclusion I recommend this case! It's very thin and will protect the back from scratches.

    I bought it from this seller: lumia from bethebest117 | eBay

    It almost looks like a metallic sheen. Is that the case?

    The ergonomics around the edges don't look good.

    Yes, it has a slight metallic look.

    The corners? They are sharp, but the phone is so big the sharp corner of the case never digs into my palm.

    I just ordered a rubberized finish version of this from the same seller. I want the more grippy version because the phone is so slippery otherwise. Glad to know you got it rather quickly, considering it's coming from Hong Kong.

    Does it protect the screen from the sides? Most cases for the 920 only protect the screen from the top and bottom, probably due to the lumia's design. I got the red speck, pretty nice case but it doesn't protect the sides :(

    I ordered a red one since it was pretty cheap and worth a try. I think red case on the black Lumia looks good too. Does it add much thickness to the phone? I'd like to minimize the bulk I add to it.

    I got one like that with rubberized finish from US seller on Ebay: rainbowspirit2012. Got it in 2 days. Its almost identical to Incipio feather case, but 5 times cheaper. Incipio case sells at Microsoft store for $25... Also ordered 2 screen protectors from bestskinsever with couponTHBFCM363 (buy 1 - get one free). Coupon is good until 12/04

    Unfortunately it doesn't. :(

    It's very slim. Doesn't add much bulk at all. I love snap on cases for that reason.

    Is the inside of the case just plastic, or does it have a rubbery coating at all?

    Could you post a picture of it please? What is your lumia's actual color?

    Got mine the other day. It's exactly what I wanted. And yes, it works fine with the wireless charger.

    I was looking for a good case. This one looks great so far.

    If you guys can post more pictures, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    And Maybe, someone who sells it other than in Hong Kong? :/

    The guy in Hong Kong has the best price ($4), with free international shipping. Other retailers in the US and UK appear to be ordering from the same manufacturer, slapping on a logo and marking it up to $10 or more.

    I got mine the other day. You can't beat $4. I got the dark blue, magenta, yellow, and purple. They all look great, and it's fun being able to change the shell and match the tile theme!
