    It's always the same for me when I get a new iPhone:

    1. Get multiple new cases.
    2. Rock cases for a coup,e of weeks.
    3. Decide that cases aren't needed with AC+.
    4. Stop using cases.
    5. Have a gently used gadget with a few dings and scratches that I got to use as intended.

    That's just me, but my wife is so hard on her phones she gets a gently used gadget even with a case. I'd hate to see what happened with a naked phone.

    I been going naked since I got a Lumia 920. I realized then I never did drop a phone and it was silly to cover these beautiful devices up. With protection plans costing me how much I usually spend in cases purchases over the course of time I own a device I just rely on that.

    Yeah, I get that some people are hard on their phones and maybe they want a case because of that. But they're not necessary for those of us who know how to take care of our devices and who have insurance in case of accidents. I'd rather enjoy the device the way it was made.

    Both is important i think case is to protect the phone and screen paper is to protect the screen. LOL!

    I totally agree. Sure you spent a lot of money on the phone, but why not enjoy the beautiful design and make your money's worth! People worry too much on keeping the device perfect for the next owner lol.
    All my previous phones get sent to family members. Of course I want them protected for the next person.

    And I prefer avoiding preventable damage. So if that means a case and a screen protector that's what I do. And I use the money I'd save by using a case on a pair of shoes. Happy.

    Nice! I could go naked...if I had the 6s, but sticking to my 6 for now, good to know Apple is finally paying attention to these details!

    Well, my phone may go to another family member later on, but when I bought it, I bought it with the intention that I was going to be its owner and the one to enjoy it as he pleases.

    If the next person down the line can't handle being handed down a phone with some minor scratches on the back, then they can have someone else's phone or they can buy their own.

    Now, I wouldn't pass on a phone that had major damage, but if the phone was good enough for me to still be using it--and I'm known in my family for being the best at taking care of my things--then it's good enough for another family member to use it.

    I buy my iPhones with the intention of being the primary owner but I know that I won't be the only owner. And if I gift my old device I don't want the recipient to feel like they got a hand me down. I love to hear them say how it looks brand new. That gives me joy.

    I usually go caseless or with a very thin case. Haven't used a screen protector in forever. Using this case no. Looks great and still protects from small scratches/dings. Click image for larger version.

    I prefer to use a thin, clear case, if for nothing else but to prevent scratches. I hate scratches.

    I don't use a case to protect from drops, I use it to protect from scratches. I often toss my phone down on the counter, and I rather it not get scratched up when I do that.

    Don't go Naked. My daughter had a case on her 6S that did not cover the glass. It fell out of her back pocket and the display shattered. She is only 5'2". The phone was only 6 days old. Apple said it is accidental damage and will not cover it. I stopped my order on my 7 other lines. There is no reason to upgrade from the 6 if you have to cover the display and interfere with 3D Touch.

    I go naked sometimes & only use cases because I love accessories lol. I've dropped my 6 plus with & without a case with no issues & I'm sure the same will be done with my 6s & 6s plus. I refuse to use a screen protector or buy a bulky case...I like to keep it stylish.

    It's good to see that the durability of the iPhone has improved (according to the video). However, there is no guarantee your phone won't get damaged if it is dropped. It's up to each individual to decide if they do or don't want to use a case on their phone.

    And what does your daughter's height have to do with it being accidental damage. She dropped it or did not secure it sufficiently in her back pocket. Yes, it sucks. But definitely accidental damage and not a warranty repair.
    FYI, Most screen protectors have been reported to work just fine with 3D Touch. So don't let that be the only reason you don't upgrade.
    The video shows the phone being more resistant to shattering. At 5'2", the phone was not as high as any of the tests in the he video, yet it still shattered. I have a sapphire version of the  watch. I am not gentle on it. I am hoping Apple does the same with the phones. That is when I will upgrade. Starting with the 6, the design was to have a sapphire display. As a glass display, it is venerable to damage as it protrudes from the phone. One of my clients has had iPhones since the first one. The only one he damaged was the 6, and it was within 2 weeks of owning it. His new 6 is the first phone that has ever had a case on it. I come from the days where you could throw a phone across the room as a self defense tool, and then pick it up to call law enforcement. (Motorola 8000S in 1985)

    That's why I don't carry phones in my back pocket and have insurance that covers accidental damage.

    Well yeah... Didn't you see in the video that the 6 shattered easily and even the case cracked open? What we're talking about here is the new 6S and 6S plus.

    Thanks for sharing. Glad I roll naked. Love that thin phone design on my hand and that nice slippery screen!
    Those are the exact reasons I use a case.

    My screen cracked from falling 2 or 3 inches. Just a warning for others that it's more about how it lands than how far it falls
