    Skinomi is probably the best, if not the best IMO. If I didn't have my otterbox case, I'd definitely have a skinomi screen protector.
    I will second that. I have an otterbox defender and trident cyclops which both have built in screen protectors built in them. I removed both of them and used the skinomi on my icon with the cyclops and looks great.

    I picked up one on Amazon for a .01 (4.99 shipping) ... I think it's decent and would be even better if they didn't have the raised blocks. You can take that plastic portion off. I have own Otter Boxes for my G3, BB, and other phone and this one is pretty close to an Otter Box quality. I would purchase another again.

    I picked up an incipio feather case in black. To me its about the closest thing to running with no case at all. It still shows off the icon to full glory and affords some protection while retaining that nice matte finish. I thought the naked phone was a bit to slippery for me.The better thing tho is the back of the icon which had that little bit of "give" to it is no longer there. The next best thing to running with no case at all imo. Was on sale, $12 and free shipping on eBay. Happy with it.
    Also important to me is it protects the camera lens from scratches when laid flat.

    This case actually looks really nice and I'd consider getting it... But some of the reviews really bugged me. Like this one "The case is simple and functional but BEWARE! That suction cup closure design is flawed big time. Over a few weeks of use it took off an olephobic coating that's on the glass and now there's a permanent circle on my screen. I would advise not getting this case."

    And this one: "This cover was horrible. It has glue that sticks to your phone to hold it in place and the glue DOES NOT come off. I had to tear the case to get it off my phone and it left glue on my phone that won't come off."

    UPDATE: The soft touch material has worn off the corner of my Black Incipio Feather case. The device has never been dropped or scuffed and I keep it inside of a microfiber sunglasses bag 95% of the time. I have contacted Incipio about the issue. The silver case which I had used for 3+ weeks shows NO sign of wear whatsoever. Just an FYI.
    UPDATE II: After sending a picture of the wear to Incipio, they are sending me a new case. I hope this one works out better/lasts longer. At least Incipio's Customer Service is quick and helpful.

    Update: As expected, the white rubber edge of my case has "blued" a fair amount. Not ideal, cosmetically, but it in no way impacts protection. If you like the look of the PureGear transparent case, I recommend going with the black edging.

    Quasi gripe. Coming from the iPhone world, I've been spoiled by a plethora of cases. Incipio and otterbox are two great makers, no slight towards them, but more is better.

    I have a featherlight but I'm bumped our that the color selection is rather limited.

    Wife got her icon last night with a pink Incipio Dual Pro case. Feels really nice.

    That's probably bad if the single octopus suction cup trashes your screen!

    I bought the Incipo Featherlight before the ICON was released. Liked the case on my 822 and like it "okay" for my Icon. Wish it had more corner coverage!

    Liked the Trident Case for my 822. Hate the Cyclopes Case for my ICON. Protective screen was never 100% clear and areas behind protective screen collected excessive dust after just a few days of use.

    Like the black "gel" case for the ICON from Verizon. Covers the phone nicely and I was able to get my company discount on the accessory. Working for KRONOS saved me about 17%!

    Like the Hyperion case. Inexpensive, heavy duty, good shipping and customer service via Amazon. Phone fits nicely. Got the black on black. May get another with some color added! Like the kickstand for travel. Nice to have the phone "standing" on the airplane for playing music and solitaire (in airplane mode, of course)!

    Last, very disappointed with my Skinomi purchase. Had one on my HTC Trophy and loved it. Hated it on my ICON. The ICON screen is so bright and beautiful. The Skinomi cover only dulled the screen. And, yes, I left it on for several days as the instructions suggest. No bubbles or wrinkles - just an annoying dull film.

    I ordered two of these. Perfect fit (on phone and in hand) and I can tell that it offers lots of protection if dropped. The super flat edges actually allows the phone to stand up vertical and horizontal. I would recommend this case. I have tried all the others as well (except the Otterbox and Yesoo) and this so far is the one I am enjoying the most. Buttons are tight so requires a tad more thumb / finger power.

    I did the same thing with my Icon. Used the Trident Cyclops, minus the built in protector, and the Skinomi. Very happy with the results!

    I just received this case and I have to say it is really nice.(PureGear Nokia Lumia 929 Slim Shell Case - Clear with Black Original OEM 60524PG) Doesn't add really any bulk and looks good. The Incipio dual pro is going back to amazon.
    Can you see the Silver Band around the (white) phone?
    Thanks

    I finally caved and picked up a case. I love the looks of my white Icon, but I use my phone at the Gym 6 days a week (ProGym for anyone who needs a good tracking app) and just knew eventually something was going to happen to it (no matter how carefully I hid it away between sets). I went with the Otter Box Defender, and love it. It actually makes the phone easier to handle. I didn't want to admit it before, but the while it's a beautiful phone, it's not the easiest phone to hold. It actually is on the thin side, and the squared edges do make it a bit award for big hands. With the Otter Box on my phone, it actually now feels great it the hand. Very substantial, and now I don't think twice about handling it. Before I was always very careful with it in hand, because I knew if I dropped it, I could be in for trouble. The only thing I didn't like about the Defender was the built in screen protector, since it completely washed out the gorgeous screen on the Icon. Tonight I just popped it off (very easy to do, and I assume they make it simple to pop off on purpose) and now I have my lovely screen back, with the great protection that Otter Box offers.

    Yes you can, not eye popping like it really stands out but is is visible. Only places it is slightly cover is the right corner where the black strap thing is and also where the headphones plug in.

    I got the Otterbox Defender which has always been hit or miss for me, as I'm really picky with cases. You guys weren't joking about it being extremely difficult to take off. I had it on for a few hours and I hated it so I took it off and will try to sell it for like $10. I got my Trident Cyclops case today and I love it. It's my first Trident case. I normally never liked the designs of Trident cases so I never bought one. It's great so far. Feels great, feels secure, the screen protector is tight on the screen, no complaints thus far. You only have two choices that I'm aware of for a fully rugged case and this is hands down better than the Otterbox Defender.

    Be careful I had the same case and it was a ***** to get off. I cut my finger in the process.

    Anyone seen a wallet case that is of decent quality and isn't super bulky? I'm mostly looking for something to carry cards around in. It'd be even better if it didnt have the flap over the front.

    I'll third that; got the Skinomi "brushed aluminum" and it looks awesome. I can upload a pic if anyone would like to see.

    Yesoo ultra slim. Got it on Amazon. Super cheap and it is slimmer than the Incipio Feather, which I also have. So far it is my favorite.
