Mozo brings color back to Lumia phones with new polycarbonate (and also wood) cover options

Remember back when Windows smartphones actually looked fun? Back in the days of Nokia Lumia models, bright, vibrant polycarbonate handsets helped Windows Phone really stand out. And while the Microsoft Lumias of today may be a bit more subdued in their styling decisions, users looking for a burst of color aren't without hope altogether, and today we see case-maker Mozo reveal its latest lineup, including both some very colorful polycarbonate covers, as well as some handsome wooden options.

You might recall Mozo from the really well-received leather back panels it came up with for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL – covers so nice that Microsoft was quick to promote its new phones right alongside Mozo's accessories.

Recently Mozo's been teasing the arrival of some fresh Lumia case options, and today those three new series arrive for pre-order.

First up, we've got those colorful polycarbonate backs for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, each available in blue, coral, and green. They replace the phone's original back panel, while keeping wireless charging and NFC connectivity intact. No matter which you choose, it will run you about 45 EUR.

If your tastes are a little more formal, but you're not loving Mozo's leather options, you might want to look at the new trio of wooden back, made from real wood and available in black walnut, zebra wood, and light oak. All three are avialble for both the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, and come in just under 50 EUR.

Finally, Mozo takes the colorful case action to the next level with its three new “candy” covers for the Lumia 650, decorating the phone with multi-colored shapes and patterns. NFC compatibility is once again retained, but pricing's quite a bit lower than Mozo's 950 options, with Mozo asking right around 25 EUR.

All these cover designs are available for pre-order now, and should start shipping in about three to four weeks. Anybody thinking about snagging one to spruce up their own Lumia?

Are they comparing operating system or hardware? We all know Android is an OS.

That's one thing I always liked about the Lumia phones that you couldn't really find on other devices. There isn't nearly enough color choices available for our devices. Black, silver, some shade of gold and white get old really quickly. I get it, monochromatic has a certain degree of maturity to it. But I think that's partially from people not wanting to stand out, rather than an actual aversion to color. Wanting to be part of the herd. Either that, or the ingrained expectation that computers shouldn't be colorful.

Me too, red Nexus 5 was incredible. And red M7. But my favourite color smartphone ever was yellow Lumia 1020

Yeah right €45 for a polycarbonate shell, is the word stupid branded on our foreheads? No, thanks my default polycarbonate back is good enough for me.
