    I received the Incipio DualPro case today in black. Yuck, I hate this "soft touch" material they are using. It's going back for a refund. I really hope someone comes out with a nice case for the Icon, so far I haven't found anything I like. Obliq makes awesome cases, their Xtream Pro Case is my favorite (no slimy feeling) , but I suspect that the Icon isn't mainstream enough for them.
    Never heard of them. Some of the designs look OK but I have a huge issue with companies claiming to be legit on the internet that cannot even provide an address, let alone state in which they reside.

    Legit? They are sold on Amazon and I have the Obliq Xtream Pro case on my iPhone 5S right now. It's fantastic. My point was that I hope some other case manufacturers start making them for our new Icon. Right now Incipio and Otterbox are only major companies making them for the Icon.

    When I do a search on Amazon for Nokia Icon cases, I don't see much other than the companies you have listed. Verizon wanted $49.99 for a case, car charger and screen protector. I kindly declined. :)

    So just because things are on Amazon, I haven't checked in this instance, it is 100% a solid business? No fraud ever happens on Amazon? Legitimate businesses usually disclose a physical address in the states, whether it be a warehouse or retail store. This company might be for real, all I am saying is never heard of them and it troubles me they cannot provide an address on their own website as to where they conduct business. I do agree that I hope more companies start making cases to get more variety.

    ​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?
    No the screen is not covered. I wouldn't want to cover this beautiful Gorilla Glass 3 screen! The flap is some kind of decoration. You can hardly see it on the black phone.

    I just purchased the same case but saw better pictures of it from the manufactures webpage. Hoping i'll get it next week but not sure it will fit in my belt holster. The icon barely fits in the holster I have now. Can you post some pictures of the case on your phone.

    Berty, any news on this one yet? I've seen it on Amazon and thought about it but wasn't sure... Just curious!

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

    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!

    Incipio is a very legit company. I've had some of their products before and for the most part they are okay. They are based out of So Cal.

    Anyone found any new cases for the Icon that haven't already been discussed in this thread? So far I am not loving anything available so far.

    Got an Otterbox Defender in the mail yesterday (my phone comes in on Monday). I was a bit disappointed with the case after thoroughly inspecting it. Here are my thoughts:
    Pros: It's a good looking case on the outside.
    Cons: It only comes in one color (the black looks good an all, but some variety would be great)
    It is difficult to open the case to insert/retrieve the phone (although I have figured out that if you use your thumb on one of the arrows and forefinger on it's counterpart, a gentle press will help it open)
    The inner plastic case seems very flimsy and I see it breaking fairly easily after a bit of use.
    The buttons feel very stiff, now I'll admit I didn't give it a fair shake because I didn't have the phone to fully try out the buttons on it

    Overall: Looks good, but I don't see this case lasting long in my hands. It got packed up this morning and is in the mail for a return. Not sure what I'll go with, but it won't be the Defender.

    Note: I have had several Otterboxes on my phones before and they were all much tougher and better constructed than this model.

    I've never had an incipio case before, but have certainly heard of them and being on various forums alot and lots of people saying their satisfied with their products is really all I need to make a purchase with some confidence.
    Saying this I decided to try the Dual pro for my icon. If it's not what I expected I can always send it back as I've heard they have a good return policy as well. All this confidence and no street address.
    I've seen a defender and think it to be massive overkill, making the icon look to big also. A commuter case would have been a good choice, but nothing up yet. I wonder if Otterbox has a street address? I never even thought to check, but I have bought some commuters over the years for various phones and they never let me down yet.

    I agree a commuter case would have been a good idea. They are located in Fort Collins, CO, but I couldn't find a street address.

    Good to know. I am always leery of internet businesses that are not well known. I made the mistake once of ordering some clothing from a business that looked real online but it ended up being a scam and luckily my bank stepped up after I went through the process of providing proof that I contacted the police - nothing they could do as was online and contacted attorney general's office to file complaint.

    Just got this one in the mail today from Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pUvbUpU2387712
    At $6 it was worth a try. It is Incipo feather look alike but in the color I wanted clear or semi clear. The one I got is called Frosted Case Anti-Scratch Matte Premium Translucent Cover (White). It looks & feels great on the phone. Clear enough to still see the white Icon, not slippery at all. I'll buy a few more in various colors & a extra clear one in case of a drop. As with the Incipo cases it will most likely crack after saving the aluminum ring from damage, but @ $6 why not?

    I got the MiniSuit Rugged. Some pics if anybody is interested. For such a low price, it seems very sturdy, will definitely protect the phone from a fall, very trippy (no possible way it could slide out of your hands), and doesn't add too much thickness. Plus it has a kickstand.

    Sooo, I really dig the look and ruggedness of the Minisuit, and the price is sure nice, but since I have the white backing I would kinda like something that complements that, this one is only in black. Then I found this:

    Amazon.com: NAKEDCELLPHONE WHITE GRENADE RUGGED TPU SKIN HARD CASE COVER STAND FOR VERIZON NOKIA LUMIA 929 ICON PHONE: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Which definitely LOOKS exactly like the minisut in every detail, but has the white accents, and unfortunately is three times as much in cost. And on this listing, there is no mention of "minisuit" anywhere (knockoff?). I'd love to find it for only $5 too, anyone have any luck with that?

    They're 10 bucks or so on eBay.

    I keep wondering though, it does appear to be an exact copy of a mini-suit, so is it a knock-off, or is it a reliable product? Just wondering.

    I just received this case and I have to say it is really nice. Doesn't add really any bulk and looks good. The Incipio dual pro is going back to amazon.
