    I've narrowed down my options to these 2 cases. Which one offers better protection especially for the screen? I've already cracked the 1520 and have gotten a new one. Also which one has better grip? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Get the incipio one. Its much better I think. And it grips pretty nice. Although there isn't much protection for the lens though on the back.

    Is it raised up, so that if it falls on the glass, the case will absorb some of the impact

    I have both, and for what you are asking, the Nokia Flip would be better. Of course, the screen cover isn't magnetically attached to the screen, so it could flop around while the phone is falling if you drop it, so consider that. The flip cover does offer a small amount of protection for the camera also, whereas the Incipio offers none. Honestly, if you are concerned about protection, you should consider the Belkin Folio. It's expensive, and bulky, but the protection is fantastic. If you want I'll post some pics later of the phone in the Incipio and Nokia covers for comparison. Here are some pics I posted of the phone in the Belkin case: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...olio-case.html

    I though about Incipio, but later decided to buy 4 cheap cases from ebay, just for tests. I don't think that 25-30$ for just plastic case is a fair price and it doesn't matter WHO made it :)

    Do yourself a favor and order the Nillkin brand on ebay. It's $9 shipped and it protects the camera lens. Every one of the cheap versions I bought cracked on the corners because they are too thin and cheap. I bought from seller legui1027 and it shipped quickly from China. The Nillkin wraps around the sides better and provides better overall protection.

    Thanks for everyones advice, I went ahead and bought the Nillikan case. It seems to offer better protection than the Incipio case and much cheaper also. I'll let you guys know how it is once I get it. Thanks again

    I ended up getting the Amzer case after the rave reviews, and I couldn't be happier with this case. You can't go wrong for $7.90! It offers amazingly great protection for the cheap price. I agree with others here that the Incipio case is nice, but WAY overpriced.

    Nillkin are excellent cases! I had them for HTX 8X and Lumia 920. But for 920 case was not good because of the shape of phone so I bought silicon case from Nokia.

    I bought Nillkin for my Lumia 1520 and a separate screen protector. I thought Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is durable because I dropped my Lumia 625 before from waist level and face front but that didn't even had a single scratch. That was also protected by a case from Nillkin and the screen protector that they provided.

    How good Nillkin for 1520? As I mentioned before, for 920 is doesn't fit good. There are small gaps between case and phone on sides

    I don't think I would get either. I've read in the forums here that the flip cover is prone to trap debris between the cover and the screen, causing scratches. I believe this has happened to mine. By looking at pictures of the Incipio, I'm not too sure it offers any protection for the camera lens. Just my thoughts.

    I'm using the following:

    I bought another hard case from eBay with the name brand of YESDO but I can't find it any more. It is very similar to the Incipio except it has a raised lip around the lens. If you can find one of those, I'd suggest getting one.

    It fits really well. There's also an elevated ridge around the camera hole so that it would not touch the ground when it lays flat.

    The Nillkin looks like an interesting brand but Im just concerned about if the case scratches the phone's body. People have reported this happening with the Nokia CP-623 case. I've had some issues with the Nokia Gel skin for my Lumia 900.

    This looks interesting Nillkin mobile phone case for Nokia Lumia 1520 PU leather case 16138

    I like it a lot. It doesn't add too much to the phone. It is actually quite thin. There is a raised rim around the lens. The front of the case is slightly higher than the screen to prevent it from being scratched when lying face down. The sides are textured to provide better grip. Since I posted my original response, I've gotten 10 more. :) I have found that some of the colors that can be gotten are better than others. The white version discolors rather quickly. It was stained after a couple of days of use. I personally like the clear version. If your 1520 is white, yellow, or red, your color still shows through clearly. Other than the white style, you just can't go wrong with these cases, in my opinion.

    Ohhh I really like the turqoise one. My only gripe with the inipio case is that there isnt enough protection around the camera. Nillkin Ultra Slim Hard Skin For lumia 1520 Case Same design but the ridge around the camera lifts camera lens away from the surface you place your phone down on.

    So I got my case in. Its red tpu, but without the "s-line" its just smooth , looks like I don't even have a case on.

    The fit is perfect, slightest hump around the camera to give it just enough clearance to not hit the surface your setting your phone on, assuming the surface is flat ;)

    Also to note, the whole flush power button is fixed with his case because it covers the buttons and makes them easier to find and press.
