    Flack, can you describe the clear back? Is it glossy, or matte? How does it feel to the touch?

    The back is clear and glossy. At first I thought it would be slippery when holding however that is not a problem as the sides provide grip. It can slide if you set it down and an incline. The thing I really like is it doesn't add much bulk so when I have it in my pocket it doesn't feel huge.

    I just got the trident cyclops for mine in red and black and I freaking love it.. Goes perfect with the verizon theme. And there are no problems with the rounded glass and the built in screen protector.

    I am finally happy with a case. Its clear so you can see the metal trim and it protects the entire body of the phone while staying very slim:

    So far so good. It is nice having a solid feeling case on it after a week of it being naked.

    That was my original strategy, but the phone is just too slippery and keeps sliding around in my hand.

    Got my Trident Cyclops in black a couple of days ago. Works great! Thought I would stick with Trident after having a great experience with my Aegis case for my Lumia 822. Bought it on Ebay, and saved some bucks!

    I agree that's why I went with a clear case. You have to show the aluminum off.

    The Icon really is a much more beautiful phone in person, at least in white it is. The colors, aluminum silver band and sharp angles really makes it a joy for me to look at and handle. I did NOT want to wrap this beauty in a case, but the camera lens is practically flush with the back, and I'm not putting it face down on the screen. It is inevitable that it would get scratches so a case was needed since I don't like screen protectors.


    Amazon.com : MPERO FLEX S Series Protective Case for Nokia Lumia Icon - Clear : Electronics
    $8.95
    Comes in red, green, black, yellow, and clear

    I ordered this case, mostly because I know the quality given that my wife's 8X has had an S-line on it for almost two years and has been holding up incredibly well. And I knew that buying this case that I would have to deal with the biggest complaint (only complaint really) which is that the case makes it difficult to press the hardware buttons. You have to really press to activate your phone. But also knowing the history with my wife's 8X, give or take 6 to 8 months and the buttons become easier to press. They case just has to wear down a bit. But if you don't have ample hand strength or want simple and easy access to your buttons, avoid this case. For those of you who had a Poetic case on your 928 (awesome case btw), the effort you put in to press those hardware buttons is equal to this case with the Icon.

    I couldn't be more pleased with the case. The grip is superb, it's easy to get on and off, it molded perfectly to the phone with no squishy-ness, and best of all it adds very very little to the overall size.

    Some pics:

    I tried to get a good angle to indicate how much "lip" the case gave over the face. It's enough to protect when placing the phone face down.

    My main reason for wanting a case was how slippery the back is. Most cases add a millimeter or so to the width, which is bad for me as I can barely type on the Icon as it is. So I tried this: took some clear bathroom decals and stuck them to the back of the phone. It's a sloppy job but I will do it again more carefully. Now the phone doesn't slide around, but it's no wider than before. Pretty happy.

    I personally do not like. I think it would look a lot better with a case or none at all compared to this.

    If this is TPU, then does it grip too much in pockets and make it tough to take out?

    Not too much. It is great. And no wider than the stock phone! I'll do it again more carefully to improve the look. This was. Just a prototype

    When I thought I would ge the white ICON I thought this would look good on it. Didn't want to wait for the order through wirefly so got the black in town. I think the blue looks good on it too but not as much as it would have looked on the white. What do you think? The camera button is a little awkward to get to.

    More protection than the YESOO for the screen, but pretty bland looking, it's going back to amazon

    You should get at least 100,000 miles for all that tread, great for a 4 wheeler, pretty silly looking on a beautifully designed phone.

    I'm not going to lie, I though it was dammed ugly when I looked at it on ebay. I got it because I needed something quick and I didn't have the $30 for an Incipio. But after I got it, I changed my mind on this one. Hands on, I love the look. Two layer design and a kickstand as well. It's not for everyone, but (just like Windows Phone), it's for me. ;)

    First I got an Engive Quicksand case (Amazon.com: EnGive 2014 New Quicksand Hard Matte Skin Case for Verzion Nokia Lumia 929 Icon (Grey): Cell Phones & Accessories), and it was a good case but I just couldn't get over the "fine sand" feel of the case. It's going back to Amazon.

    Right now, I've got two cases in transit. One's the Incipio Feather case (black), and the other one is the clear frosted Evacase that Donebrasko has screenshots of. I tried out the Incipio case at a Microsoft Store and i like the feel - just wish they had it in white to go with my white Icon. The clear case was too cheap to pass up, even with $3 in shipping.
