Hey, guys. I'm 15 days away from my upgrade and I'm taking the leap to my first WP8 device in the 920. I was wondering how durable you guys feel your devices are. I usually get TPU cases as an added protection, but I feel as though a case would take some of the charm away from Nokia's design and add unnecessary bulk.
So is it solid enough to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use and the occasional dropping? I've seen all the torture tests, but I want to get a real user perspective. Thanks.

I think it's a very solid and durable phone. I use a thin snap-on style case that's pretty minimal. Apparently there is an official Nokia silicone style case similar to what the Lumia 800 and 900 had coming out soon, which would be perfect cuz it feels like there isn't even a case on the phone. I usually use something just so my phone doesn't get scratched up.

to answer your question, yes, get yourself a case. the phone is well built and can handle damages but it's too sexy to leave it exposed. my coworkder dropped my phone at the xmas party and it got a little nick. i wanted to strangle her. lesson learned, get a case. at least have one so that if you go out and you drink, you have protection.

I don't put a phone in a case. Especially a phone as attractive as the 920. If it gets scratched up, then I will put it in a case to hide the scratches. Until then, I am a little concerned with heat build up.

I put a Ghost Armor full body set on mine. It's like Zagg. I hate scratches and love the phone. And let's fact it, the phone is pretty big anyway. So I put on the 'sticker'. Now I don't worry about any scratches, it has a bit better grip, looking at it you can't tell it has any protection. It probably won't help protect it if i drop it but i have insurance. Works well for me.
