    I just ordered a 1520 and wanted to start looking in to a case and screen protector. For those that have already outfitted their 1520, do you mind sharing what case and screen protector you got as well as short blurb on your thoughts? Your feedback could be of great help to me and many others. Links would be very much appreciated!!

    Thanks!

    Why did you not use the Cyber Monday deal on Amzer?

    I bought a screen protector from xtremeguard, actually I bought 2. it fits well enough, but the edges have me concerned because of how the glass rounds off.

    I also bought 2 of the Amzer cases from their black Friday sale.

    Always bought Xtremeguard for my phones. I hated the feeling after installing and tried to use the liguid goo from my Zag screen protector and it worked wonderfully. Will be getting a few xtremegaurds for my !520 when it arrives

    any updates on other purchases? I decided to keep the 1520 and now I am starting to look for cases and screen protectors, with the latter really not having many options available at all.

    I have the Belkin folio case. It's pretty bulky, but provides very good protection and is classy looking. Will probably get another thinner case for it soon, though, as I won't want to use this one all the time.

    This is what I have. Its thick but fits well and feels nice. Its made of 2 pieces and it looks like it will take damage by snapping off the corners and absorb it instead if breaking the screen

    Skinomi carbon fiber and screen protector for the Nokia Lumia 1520 inside the below:
    Amazon.com: For Nokia Lumia 1520 Double Layer Hybrid Stand Protector Cover Case with Stylus Pen and ApexGears Phone Bag (Black): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Except without the stylus. The case add bulk, but I found it easier to slap the phone in and removing the phone when you want it removed. There is no fighting to get the phone in and getting the phone out.

    Incipio Feather, it is amazing quality. I decided not to put on a screen protector this time. It's hard to put a scratch on the glass. I've had my 1020 three months without one and not a single scratch.

    I got a "Black Rhino Hybrid Holster Belt Clip Combo Hard Cover" from an eBay vendor for under $10. Comes with a soft rubber shell case/bumper thing that has bigger buttons to press.

    There is a \hard shell with a desk stand thing, that I don't really like or use but it has a hard shell belt clip so I can slide the phone into and out of it easily. The large size of the phone means I actually clip it to my jeans pocket rather than my belt.

    The screen of the phone faces inwards when it is in the belt case and is against a thin felt like pad. I'd like to have seen the pad a little bit bigger, but it's OK and no scratches so far. All in all, its a 25% of the price of the official case and works better for me.

    I'm holding out for a trident case for some color, but if otterbox comes first and fast I'll go for that

    I've had a few cases so far, here are my thoughts:

    Belkin Folio: I was completely sold on this case for a few days. Really nice build quality, protects the phone well. But the bulk eventually got to me, and I returned it. If you don't mind the size, I think it's the best case available.

    Incipio Feather: Very nice looking case. It doesn't protect the camera at all, which is a big negative for me.

    Nokia Official: Not nearly as flimsy in person as it is on video. I was quite concerned about the cover flopping around, but it really doesn't that much. I'd still like it if it were magnetized. For some reason the back is covered with smudges that are very difficult to remove.

    Amzer Pudding Case: I love this case. I'm not crazy about the glossy black look on the sides; I think it makes it look cheap. I would also prefer that the buttons not be covered, as I feel the covers make the buttons mushy after time. However, it protects the phone and camera from normal wear and tear, and doesn't add much bulk, which is what I want in a case. The price is great as well.

    Yeah the Amzer Pudding black case is much better then the white version in my opinion, and I have both.

    Especially with a yellow phone!

    This sounds interesting. Do you have any pics of the case you can share?

    I just received my TPU case today and it fits perfect. I got the clear frosted so the red on my 1520 shows through. Would of been nice if it was all clear.

    I got it from eBay user my_gadgetgarage for $5.95.

    Lets hope it fits in my leather case coming. I didn't find much in the way of leather cases in vertical or horizontal on eBay for the 1520 so I checked the size of the phone to others out there to see if another phone was close to the same size. This is what I found.

    Lumia 1520 = 6.40x3.36x0.33
    Samsung Mega = 6.60x3.46x0.31

    The Mega is just a tad taller and wider. The Lumia is a tad thicker. I ordered a vertical belt leather case and a horizontal leather belt case made for the Samsung Mega. I'm hoping that the 1520 with the TPU case on will fit in the leather case. Hopefully I will have the leather case in the next few days.

    Cyber monday deal on Amzer here. I like the Amzer case so far. It feels grippy on the sides and all ports, camera and flash openings seem spot on. Certainly worth the 4 Washington's that I spent.

    I'm using the Nokia case and I really like it, but I do have a TPU case coming from Amazon to use as a secondary case. Just put on a screen protector from Tech Armor (X000IQ6G1J) that is anti glare and fingerprint repellent, so far I really like it. It was easy to install, feels good to the touch, and clear to see through. The real test is to see how well it stays on after a few days.

    I also picked up the Belkin Folio case from my local AT&T store. It's definitely thicker than the Nokia CP-623, but it is certainly higher-quality than that case. The CP-623's front is floppy and does not instill confidence in the case's ability to protect the phone. The white/gray cover and the red one both strike me as being scuff/dirt/stain prone.

    That said, the Nokia case is much thinner and is slightly lighter than the Belkin case. If my local store carried it in Black I might've taken a chance with it.

    I suggest going to an AT&T store and checking the Belkin and Nokia cases out.
