    I like the Nillkin products also:
    Nillkin super frosted shield case for Microsoft Lumia 640 (5.0") , Lumia 640 +Screen Protector

    Problem is getting items from China.

    Sometimes it's a few days other times it takes weeks.
    Amazon usually has Nillkin stuff available 3rd party.

    *btw
    Nillkin offers the best 9H glass screen protectors IMO...

    I just got the Evocel case today and I'm satisfied. It's basically rubber wrapped around the phone with a hard shell on the back. I believe it will help a bit should I ever drop my phone and 'm Going to pick up the Nilikin tempered glass next since I've read it is probably the most reputable for windows phones.

    We're using two different cases on our new 640s. One is the Boxwave BodySuit from Amazon. It's a simple cover, but fits tightly and has a good grip.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WJ4PM9E?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00

    I posted a review of the OEM MS Flip Cover for the Lumia 640 on the MS Store website; here it is:

    Back Case Better Than the Original
    I was pleased to see the replacement back cover is sturdier than the original and seems to snap in tighter. The back is not textured, but it isn't glossy or shiny like the original. The flip cover is very slim. The whole thing has a good feel.

    Buy Microsoft Flip Cover for Lumia 640 - Microsoft Store

    I also noticed it in the Windows Central store.

    Fit is a bit loose.
    The case may tighten up after some time.

    What is the feeling of claimed 'Frosted transparent Plextonium polycarbonate exterior' ?

    It feels OK...
    The plastic is better than the softer dust magnet cases that use silicon.

    Actually I like the EVOCEL cases a lot better than the Incipio.
    I will judge the Incipio as 25 dollars wasted

    The Microsoft store are starting to get the back covers in now



    I would've bought the blue cover but I couldn't imagine spending $25 on a back cover at all

    The Boxwave case looks really nice. How is the fit on the front edges? The case looks very close to the front camera & speaker based on the Amazon pics. No obstructions? Thanks.

    No obstructions, in fact it isn't even that close to the front camera. There's a slightly narrower cutout section in the raised bevel at the speaker, something my OEM flip case doesn't have. If it matters, the delivery was really fast, too. Oddly enough it's not listed in the Boxwave website.

    I ordered a screen protector from Skinomi, which I'm going to put on my phone soon. I have used their screen protector with my previous Lumia without any issues.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pUvbUpU3139588

    I'm still on the lookout for cases that meet my aesthetics and don't cover the buttons, so I'll be following this thread. I did also order a case too, but I'm disappointed with it so I figure there's no point in linking it.

    I ordered the Cimo Ultra Slim Matte Soft Touch Hard Case last week from Amazon and don't recommend it. Very poor quality and they sent me the case for XL by mistake. They did give a full refund though and didn't want the item back. Now waiting for a Nillkin case linked above to arrive from China. Fingers crossed....

    I picked up the flip cover case in matte black from Microsoft with some Bing rewards points. Overall, its a nice case, the back replaces the original and fits perfectly. The flip cover itself is really thin and is molded to cover the screen without overhang. This is my first case with a flip cover, so it takes a little getting used to for me, but I'm happy with my purchase. I do wish it had the rubberized coating I had on my HTC 8XT, that was a nice feel in your hand and gives a little extra grip. All in all, it's a great option if you want a little protection and don't like the added bulk of a traditional case.

    I just ran into a rather annoying issue with this case today. It appears that normal headphones don't insert in the jack fully. It's kind of hard to remove the case too as when I tried to take it off the back cover was stuck inside the case. It's a shame really as I really loved the case but I don't think there's any other fix for this than manually taking it off everytime you want to listen to music on headphones.

    I like the angular design of this case. Just got mine in shadow blue and gold for the wife. Very good fit also.

    Yes, my EVOCEL covers the front sides of the the white battery cover. From your photo, I see the Incipio does not. I think that is a fail for me. Sticking with the EVOCEL.

    I'm having trouble deciding between two cases for the 640.

    Both are sold on amazon.

    One is made by evocell. (Dual Layer [New Generation] Rugged Holster Case )


    The other by caseformers. (CASEFORMERS Duo Armor )

    I would post links if I was allowed to.

    Any thoughts on which is the better/more durable case for the 640?

    From the amazon reviews the caseformers case offers a raised edge around the screen, I'm not sure if the evocell case does as well.

    If it makes a difference, I will be putting the Nillkin glass screen protector on the phone as well.

    My wife's droid finally failed and I ran to Wal-Mart, picked up a 640 and converted her - but that means we have identical phones now (except I set her glance screen to green) Anyone got one of the EBay from China that claim to be OEM?

    10 bucks isn't a lot, but if you consider it to be 10% of the cost of the phone, then you want to get your money's worth.

    I'm not sure which headphones you are using but my standard earbuds have plenty of room in the case's circle cut out around the jack to seat completely.

    I've bought several ebay seller battery door covers for the 640. My experience is they are factory OEM, sort of....? What I mean is they never seem to come with original packaging, but look exactly like they are made in the same factory and OEM, but I think they don't make it through the quality check.

    I have the original Cricket blue from in store purchase in USA. The side buttons work great. I bought a Hong Kong ebay seller orange and it looks perfectly original. But the side buttons sit too low and don't press as positively. I bought a Chinese black 640 cover and the plastic was slightly warped in the button area like it was pulled out of the mold and deformed. They did send a new one for free but the side buttons sit too low and don't press all that well.

    I bought a United Kingdom ebay seller OEM Microsoft flip cover with card slot that advertised that it came in original packaging and it did. It is perfect and the side button do sit properly and work in a positive fashion. Just my experience and in the future I'd rather pay a little more for the buttons to work properly. Especially on the 640.
