    Kugi Blue TPU case & Tudia TPU case
    Hey robertre,

    Just goes to show you that different strokes for different folks:). I assessed the exact same two cases only, just the opposite, because of the same issue, the buttons being covered/uncovered.

    The Kugi Blue TPU is sitting by the door with a return lable, waiting for UPS, as I type.

    Tudia TPU is not currently on the phone, but I am keeping it for a spare. I have to say that the quality for an inexpensive, slim cover has vastly improved since the time I bought one in 2012. I had settled on a Otterbox back then and have used it until just recently. when I knew I was going to upgrade to the 950XL, I prepped my old 920 for my girlfriend by taking off the Otter and going with a slim silicone/hardback I had on the shelf...I actually loved the lack of bulk going from a Otterbox to a slim case (although the Otterbox protected the heck out of my 920...still looks new:)

    So that I don't have to write why I favor the one over the other (laziness:), I will CUT&PASTE a review I gave Amazon on the Tudia:

    ================

    Happy with my purchase!

    THE GOOD:
    The Case is definitely a good and inexpensive solution to the new 950xl, it immediately improved the feel of my phone, taking away the strong treat of dropping the phone due to the phone's innate slick/slippery finish (I Just knew I would drop the phone sooner, than later - due to the phone's slick finish).

    The case added a GREAT deal of protection to the face on the phone (the face is raised slightly by the case), and to the camera's lens on the back (same reason, the case is slightly higher than the lens).

    The case is very minimal, and allows it to fit in a new holster I purchased and like, and if the case was bulky at all, it would not have fit in my new holster.

    I really, really like the way the case covers the function buttons on the side of the phone - it is ascetically pleasing and helps help dirt out.

    THE BAD:
    Although I like the fact that the case covers the function buttons on the side (see above for reason why), I do not think the design went far enough for optimum use (definitely not your friend when you're in a hurry, and I am ALWAYS in a hurry!). If the manufacturer would either raise the up/down volume, and power nubs more - or even easier, place a small nipple on the up and down nubs (like on a TV's remote) to provide a "feel" reference. I think a combination of both would be the best solution (raise all the nubs, and place a nipple on volume controls).

    THE SUMMARY:
    Great inexpensive case and solution with some small inadequacies.

    NOTE: I did actually drop my phone, on the ceramic tile floor in the kitchen, during this case's installation, and I am both happy and relieved to say that the fall DID NOT damage my phone - grant it that, the phone probably landed in MY favor, but I sincerely believe that if not for this case I would have most probably incurred some form of damage - but note; it does not provide the protect as; say, an Otter Case, nor is it as bulky neither.

    Please excuse all grammatical and spelling mistakes - writing is not my strong suit! ;^)-E-<

    ================

    I too am looking for the idea case FOR ME, I know I will get a incipio $20 at MS store, because it too covers the buttons, but the design of the material over the buttons make them a little easier to distinguish.

    I know TWO THINGS FOR SURE:

    I hate that the power button is in-between the volume up/down buttons! I just CAN'T seem to master the placement:(
    AND, the feel of those same, OEM buttons!

    I so impatient, and if I have to think/search were the buttons are...well, it's just no fun.

    If you still have the packaging, could you double check? I would like to be sure these are the ones you are using currently.
    Sorry for the late reply, been a little busy. I checked on Amazon my order history and it looked the same. As for the packaging, it would tell me anything as they don't display it on the listing.

    Edit: Mine's still going strong but just a word of warning the upper part of the the screen, really high has a thin line where it isn't protected. I'm assuming that's to make all the sensors work, which they do. But it's a small-ish line near the top.

    I decided to jump and buy one based on your impressions and another user. I had some difficulty putting it on due to some dust. The left corners aren't pressed on fully. Hopefully if I place the phone face down, the weight will secure the protector tightly.

    I just ordered for $8
    Lumia 950 XL Case, LK Ultra [Slim Thin] Scratch Resistant TPU Gel Rubber Soft Skin Silicone Protective Case Cover for Microsoft Lumia 950 XL (Clear)

    It'll do until more interesting cases come out. I'd go naked but I've learned my lesson. It's a beautiful phone and I hate to cover it up. I love the cliphanger, but would never put one on this phone - just too pretty to muck it up with a hanger, but those things are unbelievable. And they stay ON.

    Leslielbk, I've Iooked at this case myself, for the same reason as you (an interim until I find one I feel will work best for me). please let us know what you think of this case when you get it, if you don't care. Myself, I am interested in how easy it is to distinguish between the Pwr and VOL buttons, and ease of use of those buttons with the case attached. Thanks!

    Spigen is hands down the best case maker. I e-mailed them too and got a reply saying that they were not currently working on a case for the 950/950xl. I think if they are a flooded with e-mails requesting a case..they would make one..So now all you 950/950xl owners you know what you should be doing

    Fosmon glass screen protector just arrived. Unfortunately, the phone's glass itself looks a little curved at the corners, and putting a glass screen protector on top of that shows air bubbles at those corners. Not necessarily the fault of the screen protector manufacturer, though.

    Thankfully, the glass protector only cost me $7.50 CAD, so I can't complain.

    I have the second one. It looks good with the black. Though with the black, make sure its clean when you put the phone in. Dust detracts from the appearance pretty apparently. Fits well though, a bit snug. Careful taking the case off, as it wants to rip the back cover off...which if that happens, will probably slightly bend the case. Not enough for you to visually see, but enough to give you that creaking sound when you press a corner ;)

    This is the inside of the CaseFormers shell. Not enough rubber.
    See my full review at Amazon.

    The case looks and feels great on the phone, very slim, low profile.

    I just don't trust it will soften a drop much.

    ronaldme, looks like $2 and the supplier (probably made by the same factory) :), Also, the grey is missing from Celljoy, says they have silver (looks lighter), but, NO gray (darker) - judging from the pics.

    So...UPS came by today:

    200GB SD card: SanDisk 200GB Ultra UHS-I microSDXC Memory SDSDQUAN-200G-A4A B&H

    Works Good, easy install, easily recognized.

    wp_ss_20151223_0002.jpg

    New Case: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...pUvbUpU3354291

    I got the Black Graphite, but no longer listed when last I looked. actually, I had to order from an Amazon Sub-vendor (I can give link if anyone is interested. Case is pretty nice, and a big surprise was the magnet (not the magnet itself, for I knew it had one for the purpose of securing it open), as you can see below, I was able to stick it to the front of the refrigerator. The case will also allow QI Wireless charging. I do wish that the case had a notch in the case's side edge, where the power button is (but I may cut a notch in it myself), so I could have a feel reference for quick power on.

    Update: After using this case today, I noticed that it charges very slow on an iDoo Wireless Charger - probably because of the Magnet? Still charges, but very slow.

    Update: after using this case for a day...I find it causes the 950XL to charger very slow when on a iDoo wireless charger and get pretty warm - probably because of the magnet.
