Nokia CC-1031 Lumia 800 Soft Case Review

It's great that Nokia gives us a free case in the box with the Lumia 800 but what if you fancy something a bit more colourful? If that's you then you will want to check out Nokia's range of coloured cases.

Many people that have already purchased the Nokia Lumia 800 will be familiar with this case as it's identical to the one included in the box, except that this one is red.

The soft cases offer better protection than the hard CC-3032 case that I recently reviewed plus you get the reassurance that they are easier to grip and harder to drop.  The downside is that more of the phone is covered so less of the Lumia 800's beautiful design can be seen. It's hard to show on pictures but the colours used on these cases really are striking, bright but also deep and have a real quality look to them.  After normal usage picking up normal dirt and grease the colours do start to fade but a quick clean and they are back to looking their best again.

I would strongly recommend these cases to anyone that likes the case included with the Lumia 800 but would prefer a splash of colour to make their phone stand out in the crowd. I purchased my red case from amazon for just under £10, other colours are available such as green, cyan, magenta and black.  There's also a white version of the case but at the moment they seem to be limited to promotional packs that some retailers are giving away with the Lumia 800.

Any questions about the case? Feel free to leave them in the comments section below the images.


  1. Thanks for posting this! I was unsure whether to buy this or not, but the cover looks great.

  2. Hello,

    Is the case tight on the sides of the screen or you can bend the rubber easily?

    Thanks for the review!

  3. It's tighter than many cheap 3rd party cases but can still be bent. It quickly returns to the correct place when you let it go.

  4. Any luck with these in India? I have been looking for those. Let me know if anybody is able to ship it here for a reasonable cost.
