    No, just get another brand of clear case, there's no "official Nokia" case. Mine is some silicon clear case. 
    Okay thanks. And what about the screen protector I asked about in the question that you quoted in your response to an earlier question?

    There is no pre-applied screen protector, why do you need one? The case has raised edges. 
    The raised edges will help only when the phone is kept face down on a clean and perfectly flat surface. Rest of the time the screen will be exposed without any protector. I personally don't use a screen protector on my current Moto X Play and its held up pretty well so far. But this Nokia 8.1 is very notorious for catching scratches very easily, as mentioned by various reviewers (I really hope they're wrong, but don't wanna risk it). Besides, it uses NEG glass and not Gorilla glass. And I haven't used a device with NEG glass before. So I'm not sure of is ability to keep away scratches

    NEG is a competitor to Gorilla Glass, they provide the same sort of protection. 

    I've dropped my phone lots of times since I've had it and not a single scratch, I'm more worried about the back glass breaking rather than the screen. 
    That's great news about the screen strength. Thanks :)
    Regarding the back glass, I suppose they've used the same glass as the front. So that should be fine as well

    Nope, it's normal glass and extremely slippery. It's also a stupid design as the phone doesn't have wireless charging so it's a pointless feature. 
    Oh okay. I like 7 Plus' design the most. Looks good as well as is durable (coz no glass)

    Is TrulySecure face unlock coming to Nokia 8.1 via an update, or does it have a hardware limitation?

    Where's the ambient light sensor on this device?
    The location 9 houses both the light sensor (on the right) and the proximity (on the left).

    I'm afraid Nokia can't do anything about it. It's Google's decision

    The seek bar for the songs isn't working too. The ram management is totally bad. I can't even upload a picture. Really the "ram management" should be improved. Lot of bugs to be fixed

    Sorry to know about your play store. Nope, don't see the focus mode. Maybe an update to the app is on the way

    Seek bar is working for Google Play Music, but not for Musicolet. Probably the 3rd party apps aren't updated yet
