    A new 1520 user here. I bought the Nokia folio (cp-623) with the phone. The pro's are that it is very thin and light, it adds grip to the phone, the phone fits snugly and it doubles as a stand. The cons are that it is expensive ($40 at ATT store), it doesnt feel like it adds much protection from drops and my biggest complaint - It makes using the Camera really awkward.

    Before buying the phone, I had already ordered the Abacus case of Amazon. It should be here very soon. I will give a review on that one. My expectation is that it will feel nicer (pleather vs plastic) and it has a place for credit cards. But I can already see myself looking elsewhere, as I hate the camera being covered when you open the case.

    I wish there was an otterbox or equivalent. Those are quality and they truly protect the phone.

    One inexpensive case that I like is the Amzer Pudding case. It's gotten good "reviews" on this board from other users, and is quite inexpensive. It doesn't offer otter box-like protection, but it will prevent the little nicks and scratches you might get without a case in everyday use. I'm not sure there is an otterbox type case available yet.

    Does anyone own a case that raise/lifts the front so that it does not lay flat if you set it down?

    Amzer or the Tudia Melody lifts the front. Both are on Amazon.

    Got the Abacas case of Amazon in. I like it much, much more than the Nokia one. But I still hate that the camera is covered when open it up.

    Thinking about ordering a standard case, but I love having the screen covered.

    I have the Tudia Melody and not only doesn't it add bulk it makes my phone (red glossy) easier to grip.

    I'm using the "Amzer Pudding" case from Amazon... Cheap, slim, and has a great feel... It also accepts the stock charging cord with zero issues... I would buy again in a snap!

    I am using the Nillkin Hard Back case. It was already reviewed here in WPC. It is slim, feels durable and adds grip, but the phone feels much thinner without it. I only use it when I sleep (to avoid accidental drops) or when I go to our mine site, since it's dusty there. On all other instances, I use it with only a separate matte screen protector on.





    And btw, Nillkin provides a free clear screen protector. Had used a Nillkin case too with its screen protector since my Lumia 625, but the screen protector itself isn't scratch-free (or maybe I was less careful before).
