    Can someone tell me is the camera lens prone to scratches when lying flat on a surface, or would you suggest buying a case/charging shell? I'm upgrading from my 920 to this model...

    I have a slide in leather type case I don't put my 925 down on the lens at all. It helps with carrying it too as its a slippery phone!

    For me, I wanted a high end WP that was slimmer and weighed less than the 920. And was really hoping on avoiding a case, as that just adds weight and thickness. But, the last thing I want is the camera glass lens getting scuffed. So I may have little choice :/

    I've got an Incipio Feather case and it adds very little to the phone. IMHO it's too slippery to use without a case.

    This! I just took mine out of its Incipio feather case a few minutes ago and it really is incredibly slippery. In fact, I almost dropped it IN its case on Sunday and then again yesterday when I was outside. What a nightmare that would be, but I couldn't imagine using this phone without a case.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Do any of you know what type of glass is protecting the camera lens on the back?

    925 without a case feels weird for me. Feels like it will fall off my hand regardless if I grip it hard

    Handling my 925 without a case is like handling a wet bar of soap.

    I have a case but rarely use it because I find I'm answering questions about the phone often and feel the look of this phone is a selling point for WP in general. So basically I don't want to hide the looks because the looks generate interest in the phone which leads to interest in WP.

    As to the lens getting scratched laying on a flat surface, I do make sure I sit mine on something soft or at least perfectly flat. Since the lens is in the center of a bulge, none of it will touch a flat surface.

    I recent bought a 925, and I must admit, it's very slippery. However, I don't have it in a case as I love the design of this device, the best looking WP IMO.
