I may go with one of these matte cases... can't find much about them, but it's not that expensive to try out, I guess! When I searched for other products they make, I found some macbook covers that had high scores from customer reviews.
I think these look nice, but for me, the point of a case is to protect the screen if (really when) I drop it. These cases that don't go around the edge and provide a bumper of sorts don't really help. I know because this is how I broke my last iPhone :(
Yes, but for those of us that aren't willing to cover the screen, these at least keep the rest looking like new. And you have to figure probably 60% of the time when you drop it's the back or sides that will take the impact, so they're not useless.
I ordered three different types from eBay since they are so cheap... we'll see what they look like.
I'm waiting on the release of the Nokia CC-1043 model gel case. I have/had the Nokia CC-1037-BK model gel case for my girlfriends 900, and it was awesome. Offered more grip over the polycarbonate body while adding very, very little bulk to the phone. Most people who saw it didn't think I had a case on it. Amazon has it on their site but says it's currently unavailable. I've wish listed it and hope it comes available very soon.
i wonder if the wireless charging would still work with all these cases on?
According to Otterbox's FAQ it states that the Qi standard allows it to charge with up to a 40mm distance between the charger and the phone. So the otterbox defender case works. So I am guessing that an plastic shell and gel shell would be fine also.
I'm actually looking a bumper. This tank looks beautiful already. Just got to keep the edges clean from drops.
I just purchased two of the Belkin bumpers this morning: a red and black one for my red 920 and a white and pink one for my wife's cyan 920. I'm hoping we never need them, but my wife went through three cases on her last phone and we have an 18 month old who loves to grab any phone he can - then run away with it. While I know the Lumias are pretty solid devices, I want the extra protection. The bumpers are nice because you can still show off the device colour.
I just ordered this Cima case (clear) for my yellow 920 for 9 bucks.. lip big enough to protect screen, and clear enough to show yellow =).. item isn't ready to ship until the 17th, getting it on the 21st. Will be back with review of cover.
Below are some pics. Sorry about the quality, these were actually taken with my colleagues new Galaxy 3S. I was surprised by the quality of the pictures. I had to ask him for his phone to take a look at the camera to make sure the lens was not blurred in some way and the lens wasn’t.
As for typing, I can type when the lid is folded over quite easily but that is not why I purchased. I got it because it looks professional, can easily flip the lid open so I have access to my phone and I am always needing access to my business cards. The fact that the lid folds is nice and I may use it on the rare occasion to watch media.
I'm not looking for a protective case but just something to carry the Lumia 920 on my belt. The problem I am having with the 920, which I didn't in the 900, is the audio jack is in the middle of the top of the phone and when headphones are used it doesn't want to fit. Ideally I would like to have a holster like this one for the 920.
