    Thanks to this thread I ordered my fifth case. The Nilkin in black paired with my yellow 1520 should go great together. I'll now have 3 light weight cases, a folio case and a hardcore outer box like case. I'd rather go bare but I'm am not going to risk it.

    The cases also help when you put the phone down.
    It protects the edge of the camera, which makes contact to the surface of the table when you put the phone down face up.

    I'm abit Islamist for my phone.
    She only takes off her cover when at home. :P

    Put a case on it as soon as I got it. I wanted sooo bad, to not wear a case. The 1520 is so bad ***(mine's red). I went through about five cases and just couldn't find one that I was satisfied with. Yeah, I wanted the phone protected, but I wanted its beauty to shine, as well. So I took the case off. I started getting compliments left and right. People notice a big shiny red phone. Went to answer my.phone one day and when pulling it out of my pocket, the slippery ******* took flight...into a large ceramic vase...12 feet away. Yeah, it flew that far. How? Dunno. But when I saw the chip on the vase, I was afraid to pick my baby up. When I did, I almost cried.

    After a month, waiting for the new screen to come from China, a few hundred bucks, and a phone still not right... It has the biggest ugliest black two piece I could find. Will never come off again. It only takes one time, to hit the edge of the screen, and your life will forever be changed.

    The case is actually for a better grip rather than scratch protection. It feels better to hold with a casing.

    YES, best explanation yet. ^^^^

    The case adds a little grip to the phone, which should help you NOT drop it. The purpose is not necessarily Otter Box like where it's encased in this blob of protection, but, minimal - enough to prevent the screen from hitting the hard surface (a lip around the front) if dropped & add some grip to mitigate dropping it. Mine also raises the camera lens (back) off a hard surface. Though I've been unable to post links : (hmmm, I can post links, again)

    bought this (originally): did NOT like the feel of the case, liked the holster.

    got this - much better, more comfortable, slimmer case & it fits previous holster ! (protects front of phone) much better looking & myriad colors / designs (adds about 33 % more thickness):

    I've been through many cases I like the black Amzer pudding for day to day and the black AIMO HypeKick Hybrid Gummy Case with Kickstand (reminds me of Aegis Trident case) for lawn mowing type days. My 1520 is red. Oh, had the white spots on screen, finally used warranty, gone, so far, so good.
    Oh yea me and my dad's 1520 have the white spots in the same exact spots. Think I will send it in for repair when the green variant is released so I can pay to have them put that on my phone as well, that green is amazing.

    We have three 1520s in our house. I never use a case on my white one but I am very careful and have not had an accident. My son uses a case on his yellow one. It actually folds and forms a stand for when he watches movies. My wife never uses a case on her black one and she dropped it many time. The last time she shattered the screen into nothing but slivers. So now I have to replace it. All of the options I am seeing to repair come out to half the price of a new one and you don't have your phone for a month. So I am just buying a new one.
