    I've been searching around for a good case for when I get the XL in February. Has anyone figured out a high quality case they would recommend for someone slightly clumsy? I've looked at oeago but I'm unsure of the quality.

    MOZO!! I got mine yesterday and its the best case i ever bought. However its not really a case per se, more of a replacement back. But you can still drop the phone scratch it and always get a new one..

    Ah ok, would you recommend a replacement back over a case then?

    The replacement back offers 0 protection, u can still crack your screen, so it depends on what type of "Case" you are looking for, i got a 10$ amazon one with a kickstand made by "CaseFormers" that i really like, and its not as thick as the otterbox type cases

    I use multiple cases - depending on what mood I'm in, or what project I am doing (sometimes I need more protection than other times). I still have not found a case, or back that I am in love with...yet! I have my current favorite, but I'm still looking - I'm hopeful the "great one" (for me anyway) will come along....soon! (closest thing so far seems to be the MOZO, I guess...it sure looks great).

    I think the Mozo leather cases/backs are ugly. Would be nice if they make other models with metal or polycarbonate materials. For the time being while I search for the ultimate case and/or backplate I've ordered an Orzly Fusion Bumper Case (transparent) and a Nillkin Flexible TPU Soft case also in transparent to try. Just received my white XL today and first case to try should arrive tomorrow.

    Yeah, I've got the Orzly Fusion Bumper Case (Black) on now, and I like it a lot. I have a couple of TPU's sitting around, a couple I have returned, I also have a VALKYRIE Flip Slim Wallet Case (black), that I like the best for now.

    Redn2000,

    for your reference, there is another tread: Cases/Covers + Accessories for your Lumia 950XL, that has a lot of suggestions (albeit older) and some links that you could use to view all the different types, if you like.

    This also helps, well as everyone that has posted so far. And as such I've got a pretty good idea now. And if you guys have a top recommendation let me know. Thank you.

    I went with the Incipio NGP in black. It is more of a gray color than you would think -- so with the white 950 XL it makes for a nice graphite-ish color on the back of the phone. I normally use a holster versus putting the phone in my pocket but I couldn't find anything to my liking for the 950 XL.

    Along these lines -- does anyone have a recommendation for a holster?

    I've taken a look at a few cases that are either transparent, or cover the phone. And I've found the kind I liked best was the ones with dual layers. I also really liked the orzly, but I'm curious how protective of the phone they are. I also wondered how any of these handled a screen protector.

    mryan,

    I use this Vertical Canvas Pouch when I have to be on a jobsite, and for me it works well:

    Amazon.com: for Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Canvas Pouch Belt Clip Case Cover Black Vertical Stylus Pen ApexGears (TM) Phone Bag: Cell Phones & Accessories

    it adds a lot of protect aginst a variety of things. I use it in conjunction with the Orzly Fusion Bumper Case, I also have a VALKYRIE Flip Slim Wallet Case, but the wallet style does NOT work well (too big) with this pouch.

    Redn2000,

    I too, like a screen protector (call it added insurance) and am very happy with this one:

    Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Screen Protector - Tempered Glass Screen Protector - by TruShield

    It's Tempered glass, it was very easy to put on (no bubbles, and it took me 2 attempts to get it set correctly)...only problem is that it is no longer listed on Amazon, which is where I purchased it. But there are others the are out there that will work.

    Thank you, I had seen a trushield listed before, and its sad it's no longer on Amazon. I had found IQshield which seems to be highly reviewed though.

    I just got the Orzly case which I ordered thru Amazon. It looks good and fits great. The case gives the phone a better, sturdier feel. It's not as grippy as I would like but it will do until I find better.

    I guess it's a good thing I've got a pocket for just my phone then. And this next question detracts from the topic somewhat, but the phone isn't too difficult to carry in pocket is it? I haven't had a phone larger than the ICON, so its difficult to imagine how a phone that big would feel in pocket day to day.

    The Krusell wallet case I have is really nice but bulky, I'd like something similar to the official case I had for the Lumia 930 but nothing so far, the issue for me is the screen being edge to edge on the 959xl, it's just asking to smash if dropped...it looks good but longevity is not in my mind...

    I might try one of those pouch belt clips. It's always hard to get a gauge for how things look from pictures on Amazon, but it looks like it may do the trick.

    I always take a cautious approach, and depending on what I am doing, I try to accommodate all possible hazards.

    I usually wear cargo shorts and pants, putting the phone in one of the thigh pockets. I have in some case had to put the phone in my front pocket – but I don’t like to, nor do I make it a habit. AND, I never, never put it in my back pocket (afraid I will crack the screen when sitting, although one poster wrote that the screen on the 950XL had some flex to it…I just try not to put it to the test).

    When I am on the Jobsite, I use the 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 make sure that I put my belt through the loop of the pouch, and don’t rely on clip because it is not fool proof enough. 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.

    When I Fly, I put the phone in a backpack, or briefcase (usually use the VALKYRIE Flip Slim Wallet) and always bring the canvas pouch for emergencies at my destinations.

    Around the house, I use the VALKYRIE, it adds just the right amount of protection (dogs’ tails awaggin) and looks the nicest, of the cases I currently have. Of course, I am still looking for the ultimate case.

    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.

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

    Very easy since the case really doesn't add any significant bulk to the phone. However, due to the size of even the naked 950 XL some pockets can be more challenging than others.

    So from what mtf1380 and sigal-2-noise very kindly informed me of, I can find a good case but I should take into consideration the size of the phone on its own and what a case adds. As well as make sure to be cautious of how to carry the phone, just hope most of my jeans have but enough pockets.

    I encounter a lot of dirt On the job, spent my summer trying to find a solution for my "mobile" needs.
    For the 950XL, I have chosen a semi hard shell PSVita zipper case.
    It is large and bulky, but it fits the phone with whatever low profile case I choose for the phone to wear, several cables, ear buds, and BT devices also fit in the case.
    The zipper case fits easily in the front pocket of my cargo pants and Levi jeans.
    I realize this is an extreme measure, but using my Sony SBH54 BT HEADSET to issue Voice commands, while listening to music, I have been able to work for several hours without having to remove my phone from my pocket or open the zipper case.
    There have been bugs, and it is not perfect yet, but hopefully the device will smooth out by the time my work moves back outside.
    Right now I am painting inside, and in one move I got paint on both the front and back of the zipper case, saving my phone, and proving my "use case".
