    I ordered a rubber-ish case and a screen protector from Amazon; they arrive tomorrow. I had an Otterbox Commuter case on my last phone--this phone feels sturdier so I think I can get by with less. We shall see.
    Besides the Mozo covers, does anyone know anything about compatability with wireless charging? I just bought a fancy wireless charger (Tylt, on sale at Best Buy) and I don't want to break that functionality.
    Seems like most of the cases available right now just go over the stock MS cover. Haven't seen any other than the Mozos that fully replace? Would love to see more options that do replace, with some other materials, like bamboo, etc.

    Link?

    How does that one do with Qi (wireless) charging?
    i cant post the link because i have less than 10 posts. search it on amazon. as i was going thru the lumia 950 pages, it turns out that there are other companies selling the same exact case but much cheaper...so check it out!

    Does anyone know if you can buy the white and black case separately? I really like both colors on the 950 and 950xl and I hate to choose between the two. Considering the actual colored part is the back polycarbonate plastic case that's easily removable, it would be badass if they just sold that part separately. Anyone know?

    I got the leather back cover from Mozo. I really like it! It makes the 950 actually look and feel like a premium device now.

    I also shot a video with it for those interested in another take of that even though WC did one.

    (I'm not intending to embed this video, but for whatever reason this forum system automatically detects a youtube url and just does it. That's dumb.)

    Thanks. I've been wanting to see more than ONE production (not press) samples to confirm the mottling, etc are not all the same dying and stamping. And they aren't. Maybe some B&M stores will get some and you will be able to pick and choose. Since my online order is still not here after 5 weeks, the B&Ms might have them before I see mine!

    Are there any warranties on leather, stitching and especially metal coating?

    Thank you for the brilliant pics and video. I've been considering this cover, and I think you've sold me on it.

    While the Mozo's are premium back plate replacements, I am looking to get the "Lumia 950 Case, CASEFORMERS Ultra Slim Lumia 950 Armor Case for Microsoft Lumia 950" from amazon. I cannot post a link because I am newbie here.

    I snagged several colors of these cases, I think the see-through brushed look might be pretty nice with the white color shell.lqoddft.jpg

    Sadly they won't arrive for a couple weeks. :(

    Do the Mozo cases protect the phone or are they mostly for aesthetics? I really love the look but I need something to add a little protection in case of drops.

    If you drop the phone on the back, it should do a pretty good job. Its thicker than factory and leather will soften the hit. They don't appear to recess the screen like most cases will, so if you drop it so it hits the edge of the screen, it won't do more than the factory backs. So I'd say: yes, they protect the phone some but are mostly for aesthetics.

    Disappointed in the current crop of cases. I was wanting to get something in orange, but the options aren't good. I am not a fan of the thicker, kickstand-inclusive cases. Basically, this is the only thing that's there: http://www.amazon.com/Kickstand-Micr...pUvbUpU3317285

    I'd like to just get a simple gel/silicon case to add some grip and to protect the screen, like the one I had for my 920. I might have to go with a different color, like blue.

    Has anyone tested the tempered glass protection from PanzerGlass on their Lumia 950?
    I don't fancy flip covers and thought I would protect the glass.

    Have you checked this out? I haven't gotten one yet but it seems like it would add minimal bulk:

    ATT store only had the Case Mate and the Bodyguardz (screen protector). Picked up both when I got the Lumia on Nov 20. The 950 was just too light and slippery and I wanted something right away to grasp onto. The case provides for a firm grip without adding a lot of bulk. I just wish a holster was available as I prefer to wear my device on my hip and don't want a pouch. I ordered an LK holster combo from Amazon along with my new SD card but the holster is just too tight a fit with the case and you can't pull the phone out!

    The "Smudge-free ScreenGuardz Pure (Bodyguardz)" tempered glass fits just right and easy to install.

    I've never paid AT&T for a case. Usually over charge for them.

    Yeah, it looked like it added quite a bit of width. The grip seems decent, but like with the other case, I'm not fond of the black with orange as an accent. I MIGHT give it a ago, I'll have to look more closely.

    and plus, one of the reviews said that wireless charging doesnt work due to the thickness of the case.

    What's a good screen protector?
    I usually purchase from Zagg, but I'm not sure when they're coming out for the 950/950XL.

    All the cases currently suck or are wildly overpriced. That's a bummer. But if I was a case manufacturer (aside from the awful Chinese junk ones), I wouldn't bother making cases for a phone that is probably going to sell 10,000 units. Looks like I'll stick with my old reliable GT-5000 GUN TAPE! That stuff is amazing... It does not peel off under any circumstances. I use it on my mouse, Xbox controller, you name it. It still amazes me how Microkia has never made a phone that isn't as slippery as possible. I just need something to keep it from sliding out of my pocket when I sit down.

    I'm not worried about damaging the shell, because it is so easily replaced. And I am not worried about damaging the screen because it has Gorilla Glass 4, and there are too many reports of screen protectors causing the touchscreen to act crazy(ier than it already does).

    I am just looking for a single layer of protection for the glass if the phone drops. Doesnt have to be anything special but I am definitely not giving up Qi for it.
