    i would love a bumper case for the lumia icon. right now i have one of the Yesoo cases from Amazon...basically a replica of the Incipio Feather case but a lot cheaper.

    I've been a fan of bumpers ever since apple released them for the iphone years back. they do just enough to lift the phone of the table or w/e it is resting on to prevent scratching on each side...while still showing off the phone. that's all i want/need.

    has anyone seen a bumper for the Icon?

    If you're worried about breaking it then get insurance, if you're worried about damaging it's looks then the case isn't going to help as that will damage the looks all by itself.

    I prefer no case. The issue is that most (if not all) Nokia phones are too darn slippery without one. I always try to find the thinnest and lightest case available, that provides a bit more grip.

    I have a 925 and bought a yellow wireless charger case. looks great now and protects the camera lens and the corners. it gets just great with this case and give you more grip because the phone is very slipery.

    I have a 920 and while I like the phone without a case, I'm used to carrying the phone in a horizontal case. I've used an Amzer holster and like that setup a lot. I also have a leather horizontal that works but it's a little tight and so got the Incipio hybrid case and then bought a pleather horizontal case that's a bit oversized to carry the 920 with the Incipio hybrid case on it works really well and I'm quite happy. I'm thinking about the 930 but I'm probably waiting to see what else is coming soon as I'm not sold yet on the 930. I'm still thinking hard about a 32GB 1520 and the rumored LG WP8.1 device based on the LG G3 is very intriguing. Decisions Decisions !

    I have the Lumia 810 with the Cyan charging cover. No other case, I do use an antiglare screen protector but that's it. I have dropped this phone repeatedly, kicked it across parking lots when it was sitting in my lap when I got out of the car, it barely has a scratch on it. These things are tough, there is no question about that. I have dropped it from 12 feet while using the light in a high ceiling, onto concrete and nothing, one corner of my charging cover has a little scratch. One of the most solid phone I have ever owned. +810Attachment 67682Attachment 67683Attachment 67684
    Wow !! This thing is impressive!!

    I use a case when at work and don't everywhere else. The case is a transparent red tpu case, so it does not change the look of the phone very much

    I have a red 1520, the corners on this phone hold up much better than the 920 did.

    I am not a fan of aluminum on smartphones because of how soft it is.
    Yeah !! That's the only thing making me afraid ,the aluminium !!

    Well i dont like the design if my 920, i love it! But that was a very expensive phone for me so i put in a very cheap hard plastic case.Yeah that get rid of the really nice design but i think it was the right decision to go that way. The phone itself looks like new (except for scratch on the screen that is only barely visible if the screen is off). The phone took some falls and impacts that cost it the vibration and later the QI-charging(Wireless Charging)(no worries Nokia repaired it). The case looks well worn out but is still intact!
    For my 1520 i got several cases and i like the mumbi X TPU the best, the 1520 is very slippery and it has not nearly such a good look like as the 920 in my opinion. So i dont mind the cover and with it it does not slip throu my fingers.
    Even with the cases i try to be carefull with my phones but misshaps will still happen and i dont need to use them like a raw eggs.

    I've tried two case so far for my 1020. The first was a wallet like case it made the phone heavy and I didn't enjoy my phone all that much. Trying to play games or use it for a prolong period of time never worked out well. Also the credit cards slots caused small scratches on the screen protector.

    My second case is a bit more functional. It's easy to slip in and out so I can feel the phone great texture when I want to, but I still get the protection of having it in the case. My suggestion would be to get some thing that is thin if you think you need a case or go natural.

    Unfortunately YES. I hate cases but have cracked the screens on my 920 and 925. the way the screens are they will crack if you drop it. The charging case on the 925 is useless. Before these phones I had never broken a screen (and had dropped previous phones many times). I almost feel it is a design flaw as it is just too easy to do. the other people I know with 920s have also broken them and now have massive cases on them...

    I had to learn it the hard way. My 820 felt tough, heavy like a tank until I accidentally dropped it from waist height. Broke the AMOLED display. Thankfully, the touch was working fine.
    When it fell, I got a mini heart attack and I don't want to get it again. I have been using a case ever since. It made my 820 more bulky, and ruined the phone's looks but I guess it's a compromise. worth considering.
    With only three months of use left my lumia 720 drop the table (had no protection), cost me half the price of the phone to fix it. The touch stopped work over the time

    I found I need a case for my Lumia 925 as the metal part of the phone is just too slippy and it keeps moving in my hand.

    I found holding the actual phone without a case is a lot better than having one. However more than anything I prefer to be safe than sorry. A couple bucks for some protection won't hurt. You never know when an accident may occur and if in case that happens, I figure having a 10 dollar case would still be better than a hundred bucks for a new casing.

    Yep, absolutely an amazing case! We had the Lumia 521 (prepaid phone) and used that case, then when we recently upgraded to the icon we got it again. The three days I had my icon while waiting for the case to come in the mail drove me nuts! I am paranoid something bad is going to happen - not to mention, it's just pretty slippery without the case. That being said, my daughter prefers the "pretty" cases I've the durable cases (she's young lol) and she's dropped her phone - both versions - PLENTY of times and they came out entirely unfazed. Nokia is VERY durable! (Husband dropped his IN WATER and it survived)

    I use a cheap flip case and looking at the scuffed and scraped state of it now shows just why I need it. I wouldn't bother paying a lot for a case for just that reason. I do not understand the "spoiling the look" argument as the phone is for me to look at the screen and not bothered what other people may think.

    Being the paranoid fellow I am, I opted for a Blue and Black case from Trident. I understand the reasoning behind preserving the beauty of the Lumia 928 as well. I think the case looks pretty cool, but I side with caution here. I have yet to drop the phone but I know as soon as I take it off I will drop it. I have insurance on it. I just want to take good care of it, it is a beautiful piece of engineering.

    Long Live The Empire!!

    I have a case for my 928 as does my wife for hers. She has dropped hers with a case on, and it still broke the screen. Still had to pay $100 for a refurbished phone from Verizon WITH insurance.

    In this particular instance from Verizon, the 928 is only offered in black or white. Very disappointing, as I believe the colors are what makes Windows Phone unique (at least it was until the likes of Apple and Motorola copied it). A case can give color to where there is none. The sleek Feather and other thinner cases can still maintain that streamlined look, while giving a bit of color to the drab offerings from Verizon.

    Hi,

    I saw that Nokia will release a flip case/cover for the 930 with the reference CP-637 (Accessories for Nokia Lumia 930 - Nokia). There is very little information about this cover at the moment.

    aston-500x500-png.png

    In my opinion it does look much better than the other flip cases out there. It seems slick, gives easy access to the side buttons and keeps the vibrant colors of the 930. Does anyone know how easy it is to handle the phone with the case on (to give calls, use the keyboard, take pictures, play games...), how light it is, how efficient it is to protect from accidental drops and scratches (not sure how the flap remains closed)?

    Thanks!
