Nothing yet.. the cases I've seen are generally awful. I'd need to see one like the one Nokia makes for the 920.

I took my phone out on the weekend and was gutted to find there are two small scratches on the screen.

My Poetic Case and a screen protector were already on their way.

One small scratch about 2/3 up the screen in the middle and 2-3 small ones over/around the nokia logo. You can feel the indent if you run a fingernail across them.

Absolutely gutted. Haven't been at all rough with it - can't even figure out where they came from.

My only hope is they are less visible with a screen protector on.

I know Gorilla Glass 3 is scratch resistant not scratch proof but my Lumia 800 took a hell of a lot more punishment without getting scratched.

Gutted.

Ive had heaps of phones naked with Gorilla screen and Ive never had this problem so its surprising that this has happened to say the least

Hows everybodys battery consumption. So far its been a bit unpredictable but generally on the side of fast consumption. However it appears to charge up fast as well

Battery is good since I identified the cause of the random reboots - Podcast Lounge. It was the one app that I didn't have on my 920 and had installed on my 1020.

I keep everything on.. wifi, Bluetooth, backgrounds tasks etc.. same as I did on the 920.

In my experience, the phone and OS have excellent battery behaviour, but apps can easily cause trouble. Also look for an email account that is constantly syncing.. a corrupt inbox can do this. That drains it real fast though.

I am expecting the battery to flatten pretty quick when I'm out shooting lots of photos and video and using Nokia Drive on holiday. The 920 had to be plugged into my car charger a lot last year. I'm planning on dealing with that issue by getting the battery grip for this.

Im doing my best to annoy Nokia on facebook about this!

my battery has only been charged once and out of quite heavy use - photos, instagram, facebook, txts and calls I got over 24hours! will be interesting to see how it settles over the next few days.

in regards to scratches, my 920 got a few, I see people on wpcentral believe it could be the coating on the gorilla glass rather than the glass itself. I dunno but if this happened to my 1020 id be having a sh*tfit! ......Come on Nokia we want to give you more money to protect our devices...... get those bloody accessories in NZ!!

I was having a chat in the mobicity chat feature. They only sell the grip as part of a package deal.
He will escalate to the marketing dept as they have had a lot of enquiries re this accessory.
Not holding my breath however.
Could always buy a 2nd one and sell the original. Obviously not a good deal as the phone is then 2nd hand and you would loose out??

Seems a bit silly, You'd lose more on the resell than what the Camera grip is worth

Battery life - podcasts on ferry (1 x hour a day)
Photos
Reddit
A few calls
lots of texts

30-40% left at the end of the day.

Cases - I ordered a poetic flipbook from ebay - should be here soon hopefully.

Been playing with Nokia Smart Cam (not Pro) and it can do some cool stuff. Will be in my next TeleocmTech bit hopefully.
