Nokia Lumia 1020
22nd July 2014
This was one of the many protectors I have bought to protect my phone. The case keeps my phone yellow, with added cool design lines which are rubber grips. Fits perfectly and I feel my phone is safe on all surfaces.

Nokia Lumia 1020
25th March 2014
Great Protection & Looks Great Too
Having Purchased The Nokia Lumia 1020 New the next thing i decided i needed was a case to help keep it in new condition as long as possible.
Rather than going for my usual choice of a tpu rubber type sleeve protection i did a little searching and found a review of the "Speck CandyShell Grip" for the Nokia Lumia 1020 on WP-central
it looked great and immediately decided i wanted the yellow version for my black lumia 1020 which will effectively turn it into a Bold yellow & black lumia 1020 :)
The shell itself is constructed in 2 type materials being a hard gloss plastic outer layer(i chose the yellow color) and having a black soft rubber type inner layer which your phone sits up against.
The outer of the shell also has some of the soft black rubber thats on the inside ,it having thin raised strips along the back and sides which give excellent grip,
Same material is also form a raised edge around the whole front of the phone which is great as if your putting your phone face down on a flat surface the screen wont actually touch the surface,
The Case also has inbuilt buttons made of same soft rubber type material rather than cutouts to directly access camera/power/volume these buttons work very well,
Case does have the required cutouts for your microUsb ,Headphones ,lanyard ,microphone hole and a mesh of holes for the loudspeaker.
Best thing i like about this case is its look ,next is the grip it gives to a otherwise to smooth feel phone ,and of course its got the impact protection i hope it never needs.
No doubt if you dropped your unprotected lumia 1020 onto hard surface without this case on you'd damage either the screen back or corners,
sure this case offers minimal screen protection apart from if it was falling face down onto a very flat surface,
However it surely will protect the body of the phone from scratches and knocks,those knocks to corners would be really noticeable without some protection like this.
In my opinion the Bad points
1: its Pricey but i guess like most things you do get what you pay for.
2: its a really snug fit and can be difficult to remove if are a person who likes to switch cases often
3: like all but nokia the shells it doesn't support QI Wireless charging (somebody design & make a shell like this one with the QI Wireless charging inbuilt and i will buy one :-).
Would i recommend the "Speck CandyShell Grip" for the Nokia Lumia 1020?
yes most definitely ,its made my phone look great and not slippery ,and if i happen to drop it if it doesn't fall screen down im confident no visible damage will occur.
