    *This is not a debate thread, tell people not to buy cases because the 920 is already strong blah blah blah somewhere else. Some like to retain resale value and like a thicker phone to hold onto.*

    Post all the good TPU cases you find, preferably ones that are very form fitting, don't slide/shift around the body, cover as much of the chassis as possible for color cohesion, etc. These two are the best I've found so far, and they are probably both the exact same case. Great color choices though, I'm ordering one to see how I like it.

    That's a really awesome price, definitely post back how the case turns out being. If it's really good I'll be buying several so I have some variety for my phone!

    Sadly it looks like it's shipping from overseas or something, so it'll be a long wait (Estimated delivery: Dec. 10, 2012 - Dec. 27, 2012). I'm going to snag a few colors as well, I picked a black 920 so that it will look great in any case. Cases tend to wear though, maybe I'll pick up something temporary locally if I can find a generic one. My glossy white cimo case from my 900 is practically brown now. :P

    Colors Soft Silicone TPU GEL Back Cover Case For Nokia Lumia 920 +Screen film | eBay

    I was thinking about buying this Black Case, looks decent and pretty cheap. Only downside is that it ships from overseas and will take 2-3 weeks.

    Follow-up to my first post, I couldn't be more happy. I found one that was fulfilled by Amazon and it shipped and arrive in two days. It fits perfectly, nice and snug, and adds just that extra little bit for the perfect grip in my opinion, not to mention the fact that it looks just like the yellow version but I can swap to any color after I order the other colors (the joy of the black chassis). My quick non-effort pictures don't do it justice, it's a nice deep vibrant yellow.

    Here is the link: Amazon.com: Worldshopping Candy Color Yellow Glossy Skin Soft TPU Gel Case Cover For Nokia Lumia 920 + Free Accessories, Gifts From Worldshopping: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I also ordered a slightly different type to see which I preferred, and the second has two glaring flaws I didn't catch in the pictures on Amazon. It covers the microphone on top and has a cutout for the SIM car slot for some reason instead of covering it up/protecting it. Note the yellow one above has a large enough hole on top to expose the second mic and covers the SIM card slot. So I'd not recommend this one:

    It was initially appealing because I liked how the back was more precisely cut, but the two above issues make it not worth it to me.

    Awesome, thanks for this thread! I'll be ordering up a couple for myself now too since no one here carries any locally.

    They also have white/black/blue/red/pink I think in that exact same style. If you check the prime box it filters in the ones that will ship locally more clearly.

    I tried a case from a different seller on Amazon and there also was not a cut out for the top microphone. I was thinking about trying this snap on case instead since it "says" clear.

    On the TPU cases that have worked for you, when you take a picture with the flash on do you get a ghost look (not sure how to describe it) on the edge of your picture? With the other case I ordered, the case caused the flash to not work correctly.

    Did you end up ordering this one? I also want a clear case and am having a hard time deciding what to go with.

    Can you please upload the additional pics? I thought those cases looked pretty nice, just wish they had a clear one.

    Sorry I haven't gotten around to sitting down with them all and taking comprehensive pictures. I've snapped a few quick ones for others though while in a rush, here's the white and blue randomly.

    The yellow is above of course, though it's a more deep vibrant yellow than those pics show.

    The cutout on the back is slightly different and those don't look like they are as well-shaped, though it could just be bad photos.

    Check out the link below. I posted some pictures of a $3.99 case from Amazon that turned out pretty good. I have a few more on the way and will post those pictures when I get those cases in.

    A MUST POLL!!! How is your 920 protected???
