    I was wondering if anyone is using a case for the 930? If so, do you recommend it?

    Will Icon cases fit? Any recommendations?

    Post details and pics, thank you.

    TTT! I'm interested in this as well. Are there any clean, slim cases that anyone is using? My preference would be similar to the official Nokia Gel Case that we could get for the 800/900/920.

    I have the CP-637 in orange (I'd post a link but apparently I don't have enough forum posts to do so). It's nice enough. I like the color options and the fact that it has a big circle in the back for the camera and flash which also exposes some of the phone backing. Main cons are that it doesn't snap shut and it gets dirty rather easily so you might wanna go with the black one. And yes, Icon cases will fit since they have the exact same design.

    I to have the Nokia CP637 case but mine's black.

    It keeps the phone protected & also still allows wireless charging, feels well built to.

    That's the one case I don't like due to the lack of a magnetic closure.

    Right now I am using the bright green Nokia CP-637 to match my Bright Green Lumia 930. However, after only a few weeks using it, I am about to replace it. It has not withstood the workload of multiple 24- and 32-hour shifts at the hospital. It has gotten really dirty and smudged on corners, sides, etc. It used to look awesome, and I felt it was a very good concept. It just hasn't cut it at my work. The black one wouldn't get as dirty, but it would get so dusty from the latex gloves I use most of the day when handling patients.

    Anyway, I am expecting a couple of cases, to see which one I prefer the most. I looked for cases that allowed the gorgeous green backing of my 930 to show through. Clear backs that offered protection were not really that easy to come by. In the end, I ordered the Orzly Green bumper case at the Amazon UK store. Depending on whether I like it or not, I'll be ordering the black bumper with clear back from Pure Gear (the one with the greyish/white bumper has gotten bad reviews).

    I wish it were't that hard to get cases for our phones. The clear case that WPCentral featured recently for the HTC One M8 looks amazingly well; I would have loved to get one of those for my phone. That bright green is just too gorgeous to cover up.

    Cheers!

    I just ordered a StilGut leather case. It has all the correct cutouts for the buttons, ports, camera, speakers and microphones. It's available in different colors and styles. I chose the black Nappa "Book Type" case. For about the same price as the Nokia CP-637, you get a slimmer case made of real leather.

    I received the Incipio Feather case today from Amazon. It offers decent corner protection. Even though it's slightly raised around the edges, the screen still touches when you turn it over to silence. I wouldn't trust the case in a bad fall, but for day to day protection it seems fine. I love the feel of it, and the fact that it's all one color and texture, very simple and clean. I'm sure it would look great on a black 930. Here are some pictures:

    Are there any good transparent cases? My GF has a combination of Softcase and Hardcase, it is fantastic (I can't post the link, the name of the case is case-mate tough case clear for sony xperia z1 compact).
    On the sides, there is a bumper, and in the back is a glossy clear plastic.
    Is there something like this for the Lumia Icon/930?

    As someone else mentioned I'd recommend the Nillkin cases.

    The textured back really allows you to grip the phone more than the shiny natural back. They are really well made and have all of the correctly sized holes for sound, camera, flash, buttons etc. The case doesn't cover the top and bottom of the phone, more so the sides and 4 corners.

    I've had one drop of the phone since I got it in august, waste height drop on to hard tiled floor. Think it landed on the corner and I dreaded picking it up to see it broke. No damage whatsoever thankfully!

    Wireless charging works fine with the cover kept on. Don't really find it bulks up the size of the phone much, still fits comfortably in front or back jeans pockets.

    The case came with a screen protecter, doesn't completely fit the screen but I still put it on as I think it might still help the screen from breaking with falls.
