    Is there a pattern for getting it open?


    I slide the guitar pick under the clips then just turn a little and it pops open. I usually started from the right, then top/bottom and the rest of it just kind of opens up with ease.

    Here is a video on how I remove it, hope it helps you!

    Great review, I am looking for a case for my 1020 but I think it won't be an otterbox. I just find it too bulky and ended up removing it on my l920.

    Well Ill embarrassingly chime in here! Last Wednesday I purchased my Lumia 1020 for full retail since I choose to NOT be in a contract status.

    Friday afternoon step-out of my truck dropped the device face down on the pavement with only the speck case on it. Well, not much more to the story other than the entire screen cracked in 50-different splinters.

    SO, much for enjoying my new device. Monday AM shipped it off to Palco Cell Phone Repair center, since Nokia referred then as their authorized repair facility for non-warranty issues. Repair cost was $155.00 plus shipping, and hopefully will have it back by this Friday. They just received a shipment of replacement displays from Nokia the previous week so the parts were there in stock!

    I now have an Otter Box sitting on my desk waiting for my Lumia 1020 to return. I would have to agree with most, it does make the device a little bulkier, but a silly drop like what happened to me, can happy to anyone, at the least expected time, believe me!

    That's absolutely right, and no one would argue with you about the durability and protection that the case offers. Just understand that the buttons are gonna be much harder to press, and screen sensitivity issues occur unless you take off the included screen shield, which I totally recommend by the way.

    Did you remove the screen protector film from the plastic frame, or did you just not use the top part of the inner frame that contains the plastic film (protector)?

    Thanks again for all the info. I need a case and the options are limited.

    I got rid of the screen protector after about 30 minutes, like you said it doesn't sit flush, and it feels and looks really cheap. The good news is that it's extremely easy to get off. For my particular case the charger flap is fairly easy to open, but the headphone flap is extremely difficult to open. With wear it should settle, but I opted for blue tooth headphones and it's been a phenomenal investment. I no longer have to worry about opening and closing that port much, and also I no longer have to change the volume of my phone, because my headphones have internal volume control, so I just leave it at 30 the entire time. I also get full control and can play music on the fly as well as fast forward and reverse.

    Anyways I got off topic for a bit...With the built in screen protector it off I consider it to be almost a perfect case for myself. The Incipio apparently comes with tampered glass on their case, which would have been nice if we had it on ours. I may opt to not even use a screen protector this time around. I really like the feel of the naked screen.

    You have to still use the plastic frame or the outer silicone won't fit. It is easy to remove the screen protector from the plastic though.

    I know I'm reviving a dying thread but I just stumbled across the clip and how it doubles as a stand. If you give the top of the clip a nice hard pinch it stays. Its useful for wathing movies.

    Just got the Otterbox for the 1020 at AT&T. As expected, say goodbye to wireless charging. I was hoping it would fit with the charging cover attached. Nope.

    Protection versus convenience. I went with protection. Perhaps a company will be smart enough to come out with a case that you can use with the charging cover.
    With that amount of heft they should have the wireless charging built into the case. Of course that would make it cost a bit extra. But with the annoying flap over the usb port i think wireless charging would be even more useful with the Otterbox case on.

    While it offers good protection, I hate having the defender over my 920 due to the screen protector. The problem with it is that it doesn't sit tight against the screen, often causing missed touch input.

    Never know when you may need a brick! You can protect your phone and fend off a mugger.
    with the wrist strap attached you can swing that brick around

    I have this case and appreciate the built in screen protector. It is just a matter of choice. No arguing this case offers the best protection available.
