How many times have you heard that the Nokia Lumia 920 has great build quality and can easily survive a fall? Both statements are true, but the latter can’t be done without sustaining a decent amount of cosmetic damage.
It looks like a small dog chewed up the side of my phone. This happened after a short fall to the concrete from my hands while texting. Even the matte finish black 920 is slippery and easy to drop. I recorded some footage of the damage so you can see how bad it can be.
Have a look at the video:
The Nokia Lumia 920 is a gorgeous device and it eats me up to put a cover on this thing, but as you can see an easy fall can really do some damage.
I recently reviewed the JKase soft cover for the Nokia Lumia 920, which would have easily saved it from this misery. You can pick one up at Amazon for about $7 bucks and at least use it when you’re gonna be on the go or in harsh outdoor conditions. I’m still waiting for Nokia to release an official soft cover like they did with the Nokia Lumia 900 and other phones with this design.
This is my advice to you:
If you’re clumsy or work outside — cover up!
