If I indeed purchase the new iPhone, I will indeed sport it as-is and not cover it up in a case or bumper, but that's Just Me, D...

The greatest thing about the phone is its beautiful design. Covering that up with some gigantic rubber monstrosity is like putting a car bra on an Aston Martin.

well, since I'm originally from Memphis, we call this "nekked" but my iPhone 4 has been fine that way for 2.5 years so I'm sure the 5 will do well also. Count me in the "Apple spends $$$$$ on industrial design and I'm going to appreciate it fully" camp.

I always run bareback (with my phones only). However I don't know how the sides of the black iPhone will withstand abuse. Will the black come off the antennas? I tend to lay my iPhone on its side.blah blah blah witty signature blah blah blah

Sometimes I have a case on It and sometimes I have a case, At any given time I would out a case on or take a case off. But this on will go naked for at least the first week so I can enjoy the feel and how thin it is.Follow me http://www.twitter.com/dchandler326

I am going naked too.
Seeing how the glass is flush with the band, unlike the 4/4S, I am not worried about cracking the screen if I drop it on an edge.

My first reason to choose Apple is because iPhone 5 is pure sex. No other phones are able to come close this perfection.
Putting on a case with it? U mad?
Be it drop the phone. Be it scratch the screen. I will roll naked. It's only a few dollars to get it repaired.
Besides. The screen is made to withstand everyday scratch.
I rolled 4S naked for 9months without screen protector. It still looks as new. I think screen protectors are really a scam -.-"
Moreover, Apple has done us the kindness to make it as slim as possible. To reach to consumers wanting it thin. Complaining ITS NOT THIN ENOUGH!!! Now you want to add a case to make it fat. U mad?
