    I recently signed up for notifications about the XBox One and received the $10 store coupon. I thought I'd use it on an accessory and opted for a case (especially after dropping my last 920 and shattering the screen). After having used the case for a day, here are some thoughts.

    The case is very sturdy. It's a bit annoying putting it on, but once you have it, it's very snug. There is absolutely no fear that this will every come off until you pry it off. The case definitely protects the phone well, too. I have accidentally dropped the phone already and there's no damage to it whatsoever. It is in two parts: a rubbery interior and a hardshell exterior. The interior has obvious grooves in it to show where the hardshell is supposed to "clamp".

    The case is surprisingly lightweight and doesn't seem to add any noticeable weight to the phone. Granted, this could be due to the phone already being a bit hefty compared to other smartphones, but at least you won't notice a little extra. There are no cutouts for the buttons, but the covers do give you the shape and position of the buttons. I have had no problem clicking them, even feeling the feedback of the click when I use them. The case does have cutouts for the camera and all pluggable ports.

    As for connectivity, my WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS all work the same as before as well as Internet sharing. Also, it still works with wireless chargers (I use the Zens Qi Wireless charging plate that used to be in the WPCentral store, seems to be replaced now). The case doesn't seem to affect the amount of time required to charge it, either.

    And now for the not so good. It adds bulk to the phone. If you're one that is already annoyed by the thickness of the Lumia 920, don't get this case. Also, if you have a holster or other accessory that the phone fits in perfectly, you'll want to get a new one or be prepared to put the phone in your pockets. It's not so bad, especially since the case comes with a screen protector, but you have now been warned. The only other complaint I have is that the case is a bit slicker than you'd expect. I never really worried about either my matte or glossy phones slipping out of my hands, but with this case, it has become a new problem. Luckily, the case protects the phone so well that if I drop it, it won't be as big of an issue.

    All-in-all, it's a great case that fits right on and can definitely do what it advertises, but expect some extra bulk added to the phone.

    And now, for some pics:

    I can't believe I did this, but I mis-named the accessory. I keep calling it what's in the title, but it's actually the "Incipio DualPro". I have no idea what's wrong with me.

    I have the Incipio Faxion case in white/grey and it doesn't add much bulk or weight. It also makes the phone much more grippy.

    The only thing I haven't liked about the DualPro line is the silicone is very loose on the sides compared to similar cases. I noticed it on the 920, Note 2, and S4 cases.

    I like the DualPro. Have it on my 822 and my wife's, and had the previous version (silicrylic) on both our Trophy's. Wish it came in the same colors as the 920 for the 822. Really like the Dark Gray/Yellow
