    Hi everyone -

    I've got the opportunity to get a new Lumia 925 on the cheap, and I'm seriously considering it!

    I have a few questions - if anyone could help, I'd be very grateful. Sorry if all these questions have been done to death already, but I'm really interested in knowing the general consensus of Lumia 925 users. I keep my phones for a few years, so keeping them looking good is important to me.

    1. Most importantly, I'm worried about scratching or damaging the camera lens (it'll have to go in and out of my jacket pocket, jeans, bag, etc all day long), especially since it protrudes from the phone body. Having the phone available as a quick point-and-shoot camera is important to me, and it'll make the phone fairly useless for my needs if the lens is damaged. What's the best way to protect it, or am I worrying about nothing?
    2. Also about protection, do people find a screen protector necessary? If so, what's the best one to buy?
    3. If I get the phone I'd order one of Nokia's wireless charging covers. Would a case be necessary then, or would the wireless charging cover and a screen protector do the job?
    4. Any reliability problems I should be aware of?


    Thanks very much and sorry to dump all these questions here!

    1. Had a case. It was a cheap tpu case which worked for me. I don't use it now since I have on the shell for wireless charging all the time.
    2. I have a screen protector. It's really up to the user since a number says don't and a number says do. I prefer to be on the safe side. I do use a clear one so clarity isn't compromised. The brand I have is called Capdase Klia. I wish spigen made one but they don't unfortunately
    3. That's my set up now. Charging shell with screen protector. I do have an extra pouch though
    4. Nothing major for me

    Here are my views...

    1,2. Coming to the screen protector ever heard of Gadgetshieldz .......I am currently using Gadgetshiedlz Maximum Protection with Matt Body and It looks absolutely beautiful on it....
    Its just 0.2mm thick and beleive me u will never know that u r using a screen protector not unless u keep on searching for the cover to be noticeable.. ( kidding..)
    3.I think wireless charging cover case alone brings the beauty of the phone in to peeks and there is no case that is much sexier than WCC ...I am currently using a yellow one ....So if u want to
    use wireless charging cover as a case u should consider buying a pouch...It is best way to protect both of them..Regarding protection the case should do the work for frequent drops..If it
    doesn't go for hard cases....
    4. Hmm...thats it dude I dont think i have missed any point..Am I?

    Yeah. Their delivery has significantly improved. I'm not from India which is their base so usually it takes 2 weeks for my stuff to arrive from them. Now it's 4-5 days

    Wireless charging cover and this: Amazon.com: ArmorSuit MilitaryShield - Nokia Lumia 925 Screen Protector Shield Ultra Clear + Lifetime Replacements: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Screen looks pretty crisp. Probably the best one I've applied so far. No bubbles, aligned well. If I dropped my phone, I'm pretty sure the exposed sides will get scratched, but the corners should be fine. Here's to not dropping the phone.

    Thanks for all the responses! I think it'll have to be the wireless charging cover, screen protector (I'll look into the different brands people have mentioned) and a pouch. I'll keep it looking nice if it kills me!
