    I just accidentally dropped my 1520 and it was in the JKase Diablo case.It dropped from about 4 feet and landed on concrete. The case did nothing to cushion the screen and, even though it did not land on the screen, it shattered. I was very upset. Got a new phone AND case coming. Maybe this one will be better.

    Would you mind saying how the phones got dropped so many times (>=14)? Might be useful to someone starting out with usage similar to yours. I have never dropped a phone which I'm sure has a lot to do with where and how I use it
    @Opusthecat

    I was going to ask the same thing. There surely comes a point when you need to take a look at yourself if you are dropping your phone so many times!

    Anyway I like something a little different so I've gone for the "Adore June Classic case for Nokia Lumia 930 - original Cordura - blue" on Amazon UK for 10 (but shipping is 4 too), I had a 10 Amazon voucher to use up so I figured it was worth a shot. Should get it tomorrow.

    For the record, I wasn't implying he was doing anything wrong. I can imagine situations where you might have to use your phone that make it very easy to drop it (or have it knocked from your hand). But regardless of whether he took unnecessary risks, knowing the specifics could help others avoid a similar fate when doing the same things.

    Apart from, obviously, protection, I think that cases help making devices even cooler.
    My 1020 is now sporting a black Nillkin case. Best fitting/looking case around.

    This is my case for my Stormtrooper 1520...
    2014_0826_1402_07.jpg
    2014_0826_1403_39.jpg

    Why? Because I shattered the screen of my Darth Vader Black 1520 a week ago without a case...
    2014_0824_2307_25.jpg
    So for peace of mind, decided to protect my new replacement White 1520 with a transparent rubberized casing. The case also give me a better and reassuring grip when holding it in my hand.
    Cheers !!!

    That white 1520 is dead sexy. I have a black one though.
    I have the NGP case from Incipio and do not like it at all. I am currently going naked.

    I did go naked with my Darth Vader 1520 until that unfortunate incident a week ago. But on retrospect, holding it naked kind of always giving me a feeling of it trying to slip out of my hand. Does not give me a lot of confidence holding it without a case. Thanks & cheers!

    Yup! The buttons do need a tad more finger pressure but I got used to it. But I don't know you realized this or not, when the 1520 is used without a case, the buttons seems more flimsy and wobbly when pressed.

    I use one but sometimes I take it off for a week or so just for the feel of the phone without it and that makes me feel like it was still new

    I use the slim case by Nokia for my 920. I use it to protect from minor scuffs but also to make the screen leas likely to crack (since most breaks don't come from direct force but the resonance frequency traveling into the glass the small bit of cushion can help in most cases and has).
    I hate cases normally but you cant even tell the phone has one on when its on my phone.

    I didnt like the way it looks on the phone and actually made it pretty bulky.

    Wasnt much of a fan and wish I researched a bit more before buying.

    I use a Nillkin Matte Hard Case Cover with a Sinjimoru B3 Stick-On Wallet. Now instead of carrying a wallet and a phone I just take the phone.

    I like that Nillkin wallet case hybrid idea... that's pretty smart. I'm going to try and get the brown one and do the same.

    I use an Mpero hybrid kickstand case and the L1520 cp-623 protective cover (less often)
    imag0009.jpgimag0011.jpgimag0021.jpgimag0022.jpg


    I use the Mpero case to avoid being the guy telling this story:

    And I use the cp-623 case mainly just for fancy and only if I'm in a very calm environment.

    I should hope so. That case is quite scary!

    Haaha yeah but I was really referring to anyone with a broken screen in general. But your pic was the first one I could find.
    Well what I meant to say was I don't want be telling my story of a broken screen anytime soon.
