    This is my case for my Stormtrooper 1520...
    Attachment 79110
    Attachment 79111

    Why? Because I shattered the screen of my Darth Vader Black 1520 a week ago without a case...
    Attachment 79112
    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 !!!
    Hi can you please tell me which case this is? And does it protect the screen well?

    I had shattered the screen of my 1520 once and had to go with the Niilkin Flip cover. But the flip cover is a gigantic pain in the .. hand. Would appreciate a link where I can buy such a case.

    The other case I am considering (not of the flip cover kind) is the MPero impact hybrid. But there are reviews on Amazon saying that the case rubber is too sticky and makes it difficult to put in the pocket or pull out.

    I'm just wondering - is there a case that can
    a) protect the screen from shattering (utmost importance)
    b) convenient to use (doesn't increase the bulk of the already big phone and simple to pocket)
    c) looks decent (looks don't really matter, but nice to have)

    Thanks.

    I use capdase folder case
    020762396846.jpg

    the best case so far (for me)

    keeps my mind at peace not having to worry about bumping into something or about the surface I put the phone on

    but I have 1 issue with this...changes the shape of a phone completely!!!

    I want a case which can display the phones bright colors at the same time offer screen protection using a flip cover or a bulge around the screen to protect it and protection for the camera lens.

    so far I did not find such a case....

    looking for something like these for my 1520

    I'm using a Nillkin case on my L520. Dropped it accidentally today morning from the bed. Not a scratch. Not on the case and definitely not on the phone. I'm glad I got the case to protect my phone.

    I would be disappointed if L520 was damaged after a fall even without a case.

    I know. But hey, you never know. It's a smartphone after all with no gorilla glass. Gone are the good days of feature and basic phones from Nokia. I threw my phones at the wall out of anger, stepped on them, accidentally let them fall on the stairs and still they would show no scratch. And the battery 🔋. OMG. They would last forever. Sigh!

    I dropped my 1520 about four times now, naked, two times on the corner (it has big dents and scratches), one time it fell hard and goes round and round like a heavy rubber pad, and one time face down while spinning (on concrete)!! and that scratched my screen :( good news is, it still works, and screen is not shattered! :D

    so due to my FREQUENT negligence, I decided to purchase some nameless transparent pudding case for my beast phone, which can prevent me from accidentally destroying my country. But when at home or at the office, I remove that cover because..I love her naked <3

    I too was thinking of using the nillkin flip case to protect my L1520 huge glass but was afraid it would pose handling problems because it will make the phone much bigger because of the flip cover itself (which you just confirmed). In the end I settled for the nillkin slim hard cover and tempered glass combination to protect my phone and maintain its good aesthetics and ease of handling.

    I put a case onto my 1520 almost as soon as I got it home. It's a bit too slippery to hold without one. My first buy was the Amzer soft pudding TPU one which was thin and fit like a glove. The next one (and the one I'm currently using) is the MPERO IMPACT XL which is HUGE and basically makes my phone look like an iPad Mini but it protects so much more.

    My main reason for putting a case at all? I want to protect first the lense from any scratches and then the screen from being cracked when dropped.

    A really funny thread - most cases mentioned here not offer any good protection and are just a faschionable accessory. So I really wonder a protection is not the first priority in chosing a case.
    @rpac78: The Mpero Impact XL is a good find - so far the only one with covers for headphone and USB port and a rubberized back the prevents it from slipping. But I was afraid this would be a problem when sliding it in and out of my pocket. In the past I have owned also two Otterbox Defender Series cases and their weak point was the silicone coming off easily on the plastic bezel so it was neccessary to re-seat it multiple times a day.
    I went with the case i described here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...ht=rugged+case
    Would be great if you share your experience with your case as well an post some pics of it.

    I'll post some photos of it later when I get the chance. You're correct though about having a problem taking it in and out of my pants pockets. It grips really well and will turn front pockets inside out. It's pretty large but it just fits the back pockets of my size 36 jeans although with a third of it sticking out. I like having the kickstand in back and the covers for the ports does a good job of keeping lint and dust out.

    The phone is not the L920, the screen is (a lot) bigger and thinner.

    I use a case for a few reason.

    1) The camera bump, I want something to protect it so I can place the phone flat.

    2) I use the Mountek ngroove Snap 2 mount in my car. It use a metal plate that attaches to the phone and allows to stick it on the magnetic point on the mount. I place this metal plate between the case and the phone so I dont adhere it to the case or the naked phone.Great car mount btw Amazon.com: Mountek nGroove Snap 2 Magnetic Car Mount for Smartphones and Mini Tablets: GPS & Navigation

    3) Having a white phone, Im scared it will get dirty easyily. So having a case helps prevent that. It's happened by the way, i was working on my car and has some dust on my hand that got on my case. So I took off the case and washed it with some dish soap. You cant wash your phone with dish soap ;)

    I have two cases:
    - Nillkin White snap case
    - Amzer TPU black pudding case

    I love them both but the Amzer works a little better with my car mount. That and the Nillkin has those grooves. Both are great like I said before, I'd definately recommend them to any Lumia 1520 owners.

    I can't post a link yet, but check out Capdase Sider Baco Folder Case for Nokia Lumia 1520 - Black / Clear somewhere, easy to find in Europe, tough to find in the US.

    It's the best wallet-style case I can find, perfect for those who can go around with just a couple cards and some folded bills. Most of these types of cases (I bought several different brands) are pretty cheap, crack easy, and were a let-down.

    But this Capdase stands above the rest. Best wallet one I could find. If someone knows better (I'd love something with real carbon fiber, more expensive) please post and I'd love to check it out.

    I use a case... Why? Accidents happen. Better safe than sorry. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. Take your pick.

    Here's the case I use. Why? Shows off the Yellow color. Fits like a glove all the way around to the screen. Holds that (known to be) wobbly SIM door in place quite nicely, thank you. Still svelte and pocketable too.

    Nice. I wish they were a little cheaper though.
    If you were in the US AT&T sold them for 10 bucks for a while, not sure if they're still doing it

    I use the case that came with my Red Lumia 1520, although I would have preferred a black case, which would have looked sick in my opinion. Black on Red. I even have a Zagg invisible shield full body installed which give the phone a much better grip. I have had experience in the past using a phone without a case or screen protector and it easily very quickly get a scratch. Unless you like to have scratches on your screen, or don't mind them, but you never know how deep the scratch can get. For example me, I already bought the Zagg invisible shield before buying the actual phone. If there is no shield available for the phone I usually look for a very high quality case instead. But since the Lumia already came with a case, I used it. I did not even know there was a case in it.. Also, with a good quality invisible shield, you don't have to worry about being careless forever after installing it.

    My case of choice is the Eagle Cell Hybrid Skin Case with Stand and Holster Amazon.com: Eagle Cell Nokia Lumia 1520 Hybrid Skin Case with Stand and Holster - Retail Packaging - Blue/Black: Cell Phones & Accessories. My reasons are simple I wanted a little protection for my 1520 and the ability to carry my phone on or around my waist in a vertical or horizontal position. Do not let the price fool you the case covers and protects the phone well especially around the corners as well as the buttons. The carry clip is pretty sturdy and attaches well to a belt, pants or whatever you decide to clip it to.

    I use this Nillkin flip cover for my L520. I like how it protects my phone. The front cover is also very nice to look and feel.
