    I have the dualpro in Black. It's solid....had one on my Trophy and it kept it perfect. Had a "featherlight" from incipio on my 928 and it sucked. If you drop it, prepare for it to pop off and fly across the parking lot.

    The dualpro is a little bulky, but the phone is a work of art, so gotta protect it! NOT bulky like an otterbox though.
    I had the Feather for my 928 and dropped it, too often. It never popped off - it was perfect for me. MY concern for the Icon was that since there is a slight bow in the screen, the rather did not have enough of a lip to absorb the shock. It seemed to work fine on my 928. I definitely prefer the Feather, to the DualPro, which is what I have on my Icon now.

    Do those with the Feather ion the Icon feel there is enough of a lip to stop the screen from catching the brunt of a face-down drop?

    I honestly think that the feather does a better job of covering the screen sides on the icon than it does on the 928.

    And I ended up jumping on this bad boy for my case. Just ordered it a second ago.


    Amazon.com: Minisuit Rugged Hybrid Kickstand Case for Nokia Lumia 929 (Icon, for Verizon): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Seems durable, protective, and most of all cheap! Will let you guys know how it goes!

    Looking at the feather as well, might pick that one up too!

    As much as I like mine naked, I too will probably get a case. It drives me crazy too because I don't want to lay it face down because it rests on its screen (I don't like protectors). And on the back the camera lens is almost flush with the poly carbonate back so it too will eventually get scratches. It's too bad because my white icon looks fantastic with the aluminum trim.

    Was thinking about getting an otterbox commuter case because of my concern of the flush screen/camera lens getting scratched. Had commuters before and really like the solid look. Looking at the icon tho I'm wondering if a commuter would even work. The top and bottom edges don't have much room to spare for the case coverage. I don't know, but it could be the reason why otterbox has only come out with the defender so far. Maybe they wont be doing a commuter version. Might see if I can contact them.

    I wouldn't bother contacting them, because I tried myself. I went to otterbox.com and did both email and live chat, about a month ago. Both times I was blatantly lied to when I asked about Icon cases. Both responses said there were no plans for an Icon case. Then I see a Defender case released. Wtf!

    I try to avoid cases like that. I've had extremely bad experiences with them (flimsy and don't protect well)

    Just did a chat with a rep. He said he thought one was on the way, but iI'll take that with a grain of salt. I'll be watching their site.

    I bought it. I only plan to use it when I'm not using my belt clip, and need to put it in my pocket. It does seem flimsy like the previous poster said, and it makes the buttons a little hard to push.

    I bought the Amzer pudding when I had the 1520 and the case was cheesy and didn't fit well, it was $10 wasted and I tossed it in the trash.

    I have 2 Icon phones inbound and this thread has definitely caught my eye. I'm new to the world of smartphones and want to get the case right. I like both of the options from Incipio but don't know which to go with. I think I want to get the feather for it's slimness. Should I wait for more options? and are there other case manufacturers that are going to bring out good cases in the near future? I don't think I want anything bulky (otterbox). This one caught my eye but the cheapness makes me wonder. EnGive 2014 New Quicksand Hard Matte Skin Case for Verzion Nokia Lumia 929 Icon (Blue). Not sure what to do.....

    Incipio DualPro is basically their version of the Otterbox Commuter case. I swore by the Commuters, as they weren't as bulky as the defenders and were more than enough protection (Dropped my old phones more times than I can count).

    Loving the DualPro I have. The feel of it is more premium than the Commuter plastic. I think protection wise it should be the same. No complaints here.

    I have this case on my phone. I've used cases similar to this for almost every smartphone I've owned. great lay on the table design. as for major impact protection? I would go with a much more significant and more costly case. as for a thin for fitting case along the lines of thin silicone cases i prefer the TPU because it doesnt attract lint or stretch out nearly at all.

    My experience has been good and my buttons work fine on my phone as well. but again this is from years of using similar cases and the 4 days i've had this one.

    I'll probably put a case on mine once the thrill of holding this beautiful phone without one has worn off. I won't be using a screen protector because I think the Gorilla Glass 3 is going to be more than enough. I went without a protector on my 8X (Gorilla Glass 2) screen and never had a scratch. I am careful not to put it in pocket with anything that could scratch it, but from what I've seen, keys and coin couldn't scratch this glass if I tried.

    Back to cases.... where can I see the Dual Pro for the Icon? I too had this case on my Trophy a while back and it was solid. I looked out on their site and don't see them. Just curious to see the actual case on the Icon and colors.

    The Incipio site doesn't have the cases up yet, or at least it didn't last time I checked. Look on Amazon, you'll find them there.

    If anyone runs across a case similar to this, Mobi Products Clip Pouch - Windows Phone Cases let me know. I'm not much for cases being is a nice white phone to hide in a case but I don't like putting the phone in my pants or coat pocket without some protection. Thanks in advanced

    Ordering the Otterbox case now, will update how good/bad it is when it arrives.
    Have you received this yet? If so would you mind popping some pics up of it to see how much thickness it adds.

    I got my Dual Pro from the MS store, so if you have one locally you can try it there- they let me open, install and test with wireless charging stand before buying. However, mine is going back since the rubberized material is wearing off on corners already just from going in/out of my pocket. Guess I'll have to find another case...

    I'm using the incipio feather case. It's pretty good. I hate cases with a passion. I don't like the bulk they add and i think they often ruin the aesthetics of the phone. That being said, I am constantly at odds with myself over using one. I change phones often. I get bored with them and they are my last bastion of keeping up with the latest tech toys since getting married and having kids. Since i change often i need to keep my devices mint to preserve resale value, so I always end up using a case anyways. I have always used the generic semi translucent tpu cases from VZ they have served well to protect the phone from the usual knicks and stuff. the feather is nice and slim, but my only major gripe is that i generally cradle the phone in my 3 middle fingers with my pinky under the bottom of the phone to keep it from sliding out of my fingers. this is the only way i can seem to reach all the screen with my thumb and I have big mitts. so the problem with the feather case is that the bottom corner by the charging port irritates my pinky a lot. kind of digs into the skin. I will be hoping for another slim option to come along soon.

    What color? I ordered a black one as all they had at the MS store was blue.

    I bought a few different cases but love the Incipio Dual Pro case. I also broke down and bought the 'rubbery' screen protector from the Verizon store. I put my phone in a belt clip pouch (Mophie 7500 Hip Holster Case BTW), and I found that the rubbery material on the screen protector actually helps me take the phone out of the pouch! Call it a side benefit, I guess. Easy grip to take out and put back in the case....

    Unfortunately I haven't and according to the site, I'm not expected to receive it until Saturnday =(

    I'll definietly take pictures of my phone with and without the case so you can compare the added bulk.
