The Ventev Dura-Gel Case is a rubbery shell case for the Nokia Lumia 920. It is constructed of thermal formed, advanced thermoplastic polyurethane.
The Ventev Dura-Gel Case does offer a decent amount of protection for the Lumia 920 with regards to minor dings and scratches. The Dura-Gel won't offer much help from falls but it does offer a decent grippable surface that may prevent accidental drops. The diamond pattern may not appeal to everyone but the Ventev Dura-Gel Case for the Nokia Lumia 920 is a decent option if you're looking for a simple case.
The Ventev Dura-Gel Case is made of a flexible rubbery plastic that reminds me of those plastic rain jackets. Just a wee bit thicker.
The case pops on the Lumia 920 and wraps around the back of the Windows Phone extending to cover the phone's sides, top and bottom. Buttons are covered with rubber extensions and the case has cutouts for the headphone jack, micro-USB port, camera and speakers. The Ventev headphone jack opening is large enough to expose the top microphone.
On the down side, the plastic opening around the camera and light is too narrow. If you use your flash, the plastic reflects the light back onto the lens, giving your pictures a hazy look.
The case does add a smidgen of thickness to the Lumia 920 but not enough to be frustrating. The polyurethane plastic has a little tackiness to it give the Lumia 920 a little more grip. The case is smooth but not slick. The case feels durable and is compatible with the wireless charging pad.
All in all, the Ventev Dura-Gel Case isn't a bad option to consider for those who want a little protection for their Lumia 920. If you do a lot of flash photography, I'd look elsewhere though. The Dura-Gel Case is offered in two colors, smoke and clear, that both have the same diamond pattern. You can find the Ventev Dura-Gel Case here at the Windows Phone Central Accessory Store for $14.95.
