While the Lumia 920 seems to be a fairly sturdy phone I was still concerned with the stories about the front glass shattering because of its curved designed. I ended up ordering the IMAK Cowboy case on ebay (for 12$) not really expecting anything special. I was pleasantly surprised this morning because the case itself looks pretty good with a white Lumia but more importantly it actually extends a tiny bit above the screen so in case of a fall it's likely that the screen will be at least somewhat protected. I took a few quick pictures so it's easier to understand what I am talking about. Overall, pretty good case. It also comes with a screen protector but I don't plan on using it. A lot of people seem to be looking for good slim cases right now so I thought I would share.

Nice info and pics......thanks for posting. I currently have the white & black Speck case and have considered one of these as well. The wife keeps bugging me that she wants my case so being that I also have a White 920 this looks like a great combo!

Glad I could help. I looked at the speck case but it seemed a bit bulky (could have been the pictures). This one really surprised me. Its textured and it was taller on the sides then I expected providing some screen protection.

Man, you know what, I actually kinda like it. Is the material cloth or similar? If so, does it easily slide in and out of your pocket? Also on these types of cases, what stops the case from sliding up or down the phone? Does that make sense?
Also, when you take a picture with the flash on, do you see ghosting in the picture from the case? I had a case with a similar cutout for the flash and it caused that issue.

since lumia 920 has a polycarbonate body, do u think using a hard plastic case would cause permanent marks on its body and destroy the Matt finish in particular. I have a Black Matt finish lumia 920 and just ordered this case from AliExpress, waiting for it to be delivered in coming next 2-3 weeks. But I have also ordered a Zagg invisible shield, incase I find that this case would damage the phone's finish.

Awesome! I'm rocking this same case same colour right now too. Love the texture and simple look of it. I too did a quick review of this case and some other cases from iMak and other HK companies

I have a word of warning to anyone looking at the case. After 3 weeks of use the corners darkened. I think the texture really locks in dirt and is almost impossible to clean. The other possibility is that the corners darkened after the top layer wore off. Either way the case still looks pretty good but I am not sure how bad its going to look if the deterioration continues.
