I have a silicone case that I use more often than not. However, I agree with other posters that the device is too beautiful to cover up and there are stretches where I won't put a case on it just to see it in all of it's glory. But, at the price we pay for these devices I can absolutely see why people keep it protected 24/7.
Oh, & even caseless, there's not a scratch to be found on my iPhone.

Mine is always in some kind of case. I have several that I switch between and love making it look different than everyone else's. However, when I take it out of one case to put it into another I always love the feel of it out of the case. It feels so smooth & slippery in its naked state. It just makes me Ooo & Ahh for a few minutes. Then I come back to reality & remember because of that smooth & slippery feeling is exactly the reason why I put it in a case. I'd hate for it to slip out of my hands and get hurt!

I have had every iPhone since the original and never used a case or screen protector on any of them. Other then some marks on the apple logo on the back they have all been fine. Not sure what you people are doing to yours, but if you treat them right they will be fine. You don't need a case to keep it looking good.

Walking out of the Verizon store I had one of their generic screen protectors on.
Went to Apple the next day and bought this:
Got tired of the added bulk and started to use the phone 'naked', which couldn't be done with just the generic screen protector. Ordered a Full-Body ZAGG InvisibleShield HD to cover the front and back of the phone. Military-grade, scratch-proof, lifetime warranty.
Decided to add a little protection around the edges to pair with the full-body InvisibleShield and bought this:

I used to always have it in a case but lately I'e been using it naked. today though i dropped it down the stairs and theres a nice scratch right in the middle of the screen. I picked up a ghost armor and you can't even see the scratch anymore. Still don;t plan on using it in a case.

But handling an iPhone takes finesse. Finesse and sophistication.
I actually saw this one guy, he called he had an iPhone 4 with the screen completely cracked like a vehicle collision! I sat right there and I laughed at him for about five whole minutes.
People with cracked touchscreen phones always catch me off guard. Just get a dumb phone! ha ha

I agree, it can be done. If I did not work in an manufacturing facility and did not have to walk around on a concrete floor all night I would have mine in a light case (or no case at all) but I am scared if I do that now I will somehow drop it and concrete wrecks havoc on phones.
I think the iPhone is a very tough phone for the exterior being almost all glass.

I find the iPhone to be too thin (in hand) and extremely slick. For example if you place it down on slightly angled surfaces (arm of a leather couch) it will slide off. That is the one problem I have found by not keeping it in a case. After several incidents of my 4s sliding off objects, I keep it cased. Luckily, no damage.

As with most electronics, care when you are handling them is very important. Especially when said electronic it's of a delicate nature such as the iphone 4/4S.
I sold my 10 months old iPhone 4 when I got the 4S without a single scratch on it, and it was naked around 90% of the time I used it. Same with the 4S I currently own, 3 months of use, not a single scratch, naked since I got it. It is too beautiful a design to screw it up with an overprotective ugly case. Just gotta be careful...
