    After going through at least five L920 devices because of hardware and software defects, I was given a L1020.
    And I must say I miss the hell out of my 920 device. This 1020 device is an example of how not to design a phone. The device is almost impossible to grip. And I would not dare let anyone else handle it. Letting someone else take a picture with it is a nightmare waiting to happen,as my sister in law initially dropped it as soon as I gave it to her. Also, the hump in the back while necessary, makes handling the device very frustrating. I hate using a case but I have to get one. Does anyone know of a quality case for the 1020?

    That's probably good for taking pictures. But I permanent case for general handling. Its almost impossible to handle this phone,it's so slippery.

    Agreed with you , as I removed the case and used it for an hour and drop suddenly. And the edges got dent. And I again started using the case and havent dropped after that.

    its not a desing flaw mate , its a personal thing , I find the 1020 feels great in the hand in fact a case ruins its matte feel and I don't like putting it in a case but do as I want to protect it lol

    anyways this case will help a lot with grip and camera hump protection

    I find the 1020 as easy to hold as my 8x. One handed my fingers naturally move to either side of the camera bump. If you are really worried about dropping it put the lanyard on and have it round your wrist

    I think it's all personal preference. I have no problem holding/typing/using my Lumia 1020... Love it.

    Most definitely - I have used my friends 920 a few times and prefer holding the 1020 because of the camera bump. Different strokes for different folks I guess. Wouldn't call it a design flaw though.

    I love my 1020 and have gotten used to the bump and actually like it now.

    Just got the tudia case a few days ago. It is the best tpu case I've used.

    The camera bulge has never effected the way I hold the phone. Really, its a few mm's. If anything, its something to rest a finger against.

    Have to disagree here. I just received my 1020 as a warrantly replacement for my 920. I think the hump allows a place for fingers to rest when holding the phone. I also think it gives the device some characater as a again...it doesn't look like every other device out there while possessing the best camera phone to date - bonus!

    I currently have a Incipio feather case on my 1020 until I receive the Nillkin case that a link was posted for above. I think for someone wanting to maintain that matte finish, this case would be a good alternative although a bit slick at times. I'm looking forward to the Nillkin which adds some texture to allow a bit of a better grip. This 1020 rocks and I haven't even begun to test out the camera as of yet:)
