    If I was able to have a waterproof case in the Otterbox style, I wouldn't care about the proximity sensor. I'd like to be able to use my phone as a GPS on my motorcycle and not worry about the environment. I normally use the phone without a case, but in the instances that I want to really protect it (motorcycling, hiking, etc.), the slight reduction in functionality is a worthwhile tradeoff to me. My kids used Otterboxes for their iPhones and I don't recall them having issues with their proximity sensors. Perhaps they either didn't notice or didn't care. Of course maybe the sensor tech is different between the phones as well.
    I think Windows Phone is the only one that uses Glance Screen, and it does not come on if the proximity sensor is covered.

    Just seeing this one for the first time.

    Or maybe this one?

    You're right. WP is the only phone with a glance screen. Others use proximity sensors to turn the screen off when you put it to your ear, or remove it from your ear, or to detect whether or not to register touches when you have it at your ear.

    The Tigra case you cited above looks interesting. I had not seen that one before (and I've done a ton of searching). The challenge is finding a proper mounting interface.

    The zipper case may be ok in some cases, but I'd worry about overall ruggedness.

    Thanks for the links.

    I have the Mozo black leather back on my L950XL and im wondering if anybody knows if theres a case that would fit over it?

    It would need to be quick and easy to get on and off. As I will only be using it in my car for mounting while driving. I plan to adheive the Steelie magnetic phone socket to the case to attach it to the exsisting Steelie ball mount in my car.

    Picked up my 950XL from local brick & mortar MS Store yesterday. Ordered this from Amazon. Need something rugged with good protection with a kickstand for when watching vids.

    EDIT: Just got this case. It's actually pretty good. The orange piece is made of hard rubber, not the soft rubber I was expecting, but it works. Requires a bit more force to activate the buttons. Bonus: It made the polycarbonate OEM case stop creaking. Now to check if there are any other cool rugged cases.....

    How easy is it get the phone out with an extra case on and how sturdy is the belt clip?

    I use it in conjunction with the Orzly Fusion Bumper Case (but will work with any slim TPU type case), I also have a VALKYRIE Flip Slim Wallet Case, but the wallet style does NOT work well (it fits, but hard to get out...too tight) with this pouch.

    Try and make sure to put your belt through the loop of the pouch and don’t get in the practice of relying on just the clip, because the clip design is not fool proof enough and could easily catch on something (ladder rung, for example) and come detached.

    I have also found that I prefer the Vertical Style over the Horizontal type (horizontal seems to catch on everything for me). I have both, but have only used the horizontal, once! - of course, this is solely a matter of preference.

    When I am on the Jobsite, I use this Canvas Pouch to put the phone in (screen facing out, so if I were to smash the phone against something or drop it from high, the clip on the back of the pouch doesn’t puncture the screen). I also leave it in the pouch when stowing it in the work vehicle I’m in, so I can’t accidently throw something on top of it (added plus, I can put the phone in the pouch, upside down so that the usb-c charging port is available…then I can charge and protect at the same time.

    You can try some here.
    Holsters - Samsung - Galaxy Note 4 - Turtleback Case

    Personally, I got this, which holds will hold a rugged case also. Used it for my 640XL. And now for me 950XL.

    Sony SBH54 stereo BT headset, works great, it can even activate Cortana for Voice commands without having to touch the phone.

    Came across this video which gives a run down of the top 5 cables that are Type-C compliant with all type-c devices. They are all recommended by Benson Leung, so are definitely worth a shot if there's anyone out there looking for chargers for their Lumia 950XL or Lumia 950

    Recently got a matt black hard case, made by Peapod, from eBay. It feels ever so slightly slippery compared to the polycarbonate underneath, but it has a really nice, almost velvety feel to it with easy access to buttons. It blends in with the phone whilst protecting the corners and sides of the screen, and the edges keep the screen and camera module slightly off the surface it's laying on. Good buy for 2.99.

    red is available in Croatia for 950 only for very good price 33€ but only for Croatia (not delivery to others)

    Is Mozo having a hard time stocking the 950XL back plates like they are for the 950? I've had a 950 black back plate on order with Mobile Fun for over a month and the delivery date of stock keeps moving out.

    So nice, but so frustrating. Although Mobile Fun says I am one of the lucky few at the top of the list for back orders when stock arrives. Hopefully they don't get 19 cases and my name was #20!

    Are there any other Qi enabled replacements available?

    What's a good car mount for the 950xl? My old car mount doesn't' work for the 950xl because it presses both the camera and volume buttons.
