    Getting a yellow 1020.... Is a case necessary? I was looking at the charging plate but the rest of the cases add too much bulk it seems the plate rests flat on surfaces.... Any help would be appreciated!

    Yes. Cases are always needed for cell phones. IMHO.

    It's really up to you, depending on what type of environment you'll be using your device, and how accident prone you tend to be.

    I usually like to use cases, even though I'm not accident prone and don't have kids or pets. However, I never take insurance on mobile devices. Using a case will also help with resale value if one ever plans to sell a device, since the case will prevent cosmetic damage like scratches.

    I usually use them too, my issue is finding one that keeps the screen slightly lifted when on a flat service as well as the camera. The speck case does this but is too bulky IMO.... Any recommendations?

    Been using mine (Black) without a case since day one. No problems. Just don't let gravity get the best of it.

    Not a fan of cases and haven't really used a screen protector before and my phones have lived to tell the tale in one piece. However, after my 920 picked up a couple of scratches on the screen without being dropped, I decided to, at the very least, use a screen protector. I found Screenproof through this forum and they sell clear screen and body protectors which are applied when wet. It's a little fiddly but once it has dried and set, it's very difficult to tell that there's a screen protector on the phone. No bubbles or lifts anywhere.

    Try out these cases. They come with screen guard :) . I got one really nice and doesn't add any bulk to it.

    It protects the phone from scratches and potential damage from an accidental drop. I can't count the number of times I've seen a post here dealing with accidental drops where somebody says, "I was getting out of my car and my phone slip out of my pocket, it only fell 3 ft and screen shattered.

    I use a screen protector and place my phone down on the face. That way my camera hump is not scratched.

    I did drop the phone once and dinged the two top corners. Its flat white... A few min with a fine sanding block cleared it right up!

    With my past experiences with Nokia devices, a case is not needed, but a screen protector is highly recommended by me. (all my Nokia bodies are perfect, except I cracked 2 920 screens)
