I'm learning to be very careful with my Lumia 525 after deciding against any protection.

It felt very awkward when you have to clean it every night and sometimes temporarily give the phone to the lecturer when nobody's in the room but the two of us.

You should always use protection kiddies.

Don't be silly, wrap that... screen.

Screen protectors kind of stink and make sunlight visibility a bit worse (though matte protectors are another story - it's much more resistant to smudging, scratching, and reflections, but they kill clarity).

I never used a screen protector on my previous phone. What's the use of them? Went almost 2 1/2 years with that phone and didn't get a single scratch. >:3

I just wonder whether a matte screen protector is enough to prevent the glass display from getting scratches when it has an unfortunate meeting with concrete, assuming that it doesn't just shatter first.

One thing I do know, though - not all cases are made equal, and not all phones are made equal, either. The problem is probably with rough, uneven concrete - short of an actual cover, nothing's protecting any phone from that.

Don't drop it! :P Since I'm finally on my laptop, I'll post links of what I got. And maybe a pic if I can be arsed to grab my tablet xD

http://www.zerolemon.com/details.php/zerolemon-galaxy-note-ii-9300mah-extended-battery

That's the battery. It comes with a TPU case but I didn't use it. Instead, I bought...

http://www.zerolemon.com/details.php/zerolemon-galaxy-note-2-zeroshock-dustproof-shockproof-rugged-case-for-original-9300mah-extended-battery

It has a teal accent and it's beautiful. Also, a brick. I removed the screen protector due to my loathing of them and it's a real beauty.

Wow, I didn't realize that they made phone cases with external batteries O_o

Anyways, I got a new case on my 520 yesterday.. and this is what it is: http://www.amazon.com/Trident-Case-AG-LUMIA520-TG-Aegis-Series/dp/B00DT5VI5O/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1389317694&sr=8-2&keywords=lumia+520+trident

That's really nice looking Zach! I hope you enjoy it. Take a selfie to celebrate :P

And, it's not an external battery. It's actually connected to the phone xD It's just monstrous.

I'm thinking of getting creative with a pocket knife and the case I have.

Or maybe it's a better idea for me to get a real case over an online shop.

On second thought... ew at these prices. If I were to get the exact same case as Zach's, well, I'd be spending...

USD 80 equivalent is ugly. :3

Really? $80 USD? The normal price is $35 USD on my phone case, but I got it on sale for nearly 50% off.

No idea why such a simple case would be $35 :( Mine was $22 or so and it's a brick.

No idea why the cost of the Trident case is $80 over here.

If only Amazon shipped that case to my place. Too bad they don't.

So this is interesting, but the portal for one of my online classes doesn't support Google Chrome or Safari.. wonder how different things would be if I spoofed the user agent string :p

It might work.

It might also trip up, as I've noticed that Webkit/Blink sometimes genuinely does something unusual compared to Trident/Gecko.

Not supporting chrome or safari is quite odd in this day and age...

My student portal also doesn't explicitly support Google Chrome or Safari.

Student portals? My college is a dope. It only supports IE and sometimes Chrome. I can't use it on Firefox. It'll look sooo distorted.

I find it interesting that my student portal works really well in Firefox, then followed by IE11.

On another tech-related topic, I find myself enjoying the fact that I have a sizable amount of external storage in my phone. Having almost 16 GB of storage entirely to media and backups, in addition to the fact that I can always upgrade in the future, liberates me from application micro-management.

My phone has 2,5 of GB. It isn't much space for my apps, Tumblr pictures & stuff, so i think i want to upgrade to a Galaxy S3 Mini/S2 (or other good phone with a plenty of storage) soon.

Now, tell me, how too many internal space has on your phone?

My phone comes with 5GB of internal space, but it's expandable up to 64GB of space.

For me, it's 8 GB. It may not be that much, but I'm still pretty satisfied with it. :] Never really store anything in my phone itself, though; I always use micro-SD cards.

I'm perfectly fine with 8 GB of space. I don't use my iPhone for games or anything like that :D

My phone has about 180 MB of internal storage and 16 GB of external storage, and I often fill it with musics and videos.
