    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.
    Thanks for the update

    Just found this, looks close to Otterbox Defender but maybe not quite as bulky. I had a Trident case on my 928 and liked it.

    I got the Puregear Holster Combo. If you work in the trades and need your phone close but protected this works great. I used one for two years on my Droid Razr and it held up a lot better than the Razr. I miss that case more than the phone. I was pretty happy when I found they made one for the Icon. I had it three weeks before the phone. Anyway, the "case" fits tight and perfectly protects the sides and back. When you take it out of your pocket or the holster you have the full, unobscured screen in front of you (and you know how beautiful that is). The "holster" or holder has a belt clip which I know is not cool but it works for me when I am working. The phone slips on the holder face in and totally protected. I often keep the phone in the holder even if I'm not wearing it and I can throw it around the car, chuck it in my gear bag when I gig (musician), shove it in a coat pocket or anywhere else and it's not even very bulky. Oh, it has a kick stand too that works great in landscape and portrait. Overall it's a genius design.

    I've tried Zagg but prefer Skinomi protectors if you haven't tried those yet - Skinomi is cheaper but I like them more since they appear more 'invisible' and self-healing seems to be better as well

    My otterbox came in two days early. I have it on now and with the trouble I ran into to take it off earlier (noticed dust under the screen after first installing it), I don't think I'll be taking it off again to take pictures. It's a real pain to take this thing off the phone, much harder than I anticipated. I will take pictures with the case on when I get home from work though.

    It feels sturdy and secure, that's for sure. I have to say I'm not fond of how hard I need to push the buttons now. It definitely doesn't make the buttons easier to press. My last case for the 928 was better than this IMO. It may not have protected the phone as well as this otterbox since it was missing a screen protector, but it was good enough. That older case was easier to take off and made the buttons easier to press, not harder. Hopefully it'll get easier as I break it in.

    Looks like that case exists for the Icon.

    Well isn't that just a kick in the....teeth. =p

    I looked at Amazon when I first got the phone last week and didn't see it then. Since I already have the case, I'll just eat the extra cost. However anyone looking for a good and cheap case, what's linked above should work rather well. Thanks for the heads up though.

    When you do get some pics can you make sure and get some with some size relevance like a deck of cards or next to a tape measure so I can get size relevance as to how much bulk this adds.

    Of course. Even though I was down on the case in my initial post, one good thing is there isn't much added bulk. I should be able to post the pictures tonight.

    I went with the Pure.Gear slim shell case and holster combo. I carry mine on my belt and need the holster. I had the same case\holster brand on my 822 and loved it. Pure Gear case\holster combo. Shop around and you can find it cheap.

    ​Kinda hard to tell, but is this the "defender" model?

    Yeah the defender is currently the only model they sell. Sorry about the quality, the picture was taken with a note 3 and I didn't realize the flash was off.

    ​Is the screen covered? Hard to tell by the pic. Also, what's that flap on the back? Upper right? Looks like something to pull it off by?

    Could you get pic with how thick the phone is with that case? With the defender series that is what I am concerned the most with as I've had a defender in the past for another phone and it turned the phone from a slim piece of beauty into a brick.

    When you get it in could you snap some pics with it on the phone. The only pictures I have seen online are mainly just a back shot. Trying to narrow down between Otterbox Defender, Incipio Dual Pro and Trident Cyclops.

    Cyclops Case for Nokia Lumia 929
    I have this case now, but I think I'm going to send it back. I love the profile of the case, but the built in screen protector design isn't right. Since the screen is curved at the edges, it causes the built in screen protector not to make contact at the top, bottom and both sides. It is really bad at the top and if you sweat at all while using the phone, it gets under the screen protector. You then have to remove the phone from the case and clean the under side of the screen protector and your phone/screen protector on the phone if you have one. I asked Trident support via email if it was supposed to fit this way and got a vague answer and an offer to replace it. Instead I think I'm going to return it to Amazon for a refund. Other than that, it's a well built case and I would recommend if this quirk wouldn't bother you. I think I might go pick up an otterbox instead. I'd rather use it naked, but I'm terrified of breaking it. :(

    I looked p the Skinomi. I cant use something that cheap in price. I am a firm believer of "you get what you pay" the review says that it doesnt have as much of an orange peel effect like Zagg does but I've never had an issue with orange peel effect, as in its not a turn off of some sort.

    I have been using Zagg for about 4 years now and they have been perfect so if it aint broke dont fix it. But thx for the suggestion maybe some of my friends on budget would prefer this Skinomi
