    I didn't see a recent thread so I just wanted to know who's rocking a case or naked on their iPhone 7. I have a Evo mesh tech 21 but keep taking it off. The phone feels so good without the case on. Just getting some insight on how people are using theirs

    Never naked when its brand new, I'm still too afraid lol. After a couple of months it will, except at work.

    Never used a screen protector, I can't stand those.

    If I'm out and about all day, I put a case on. If I'm just going to work, then some days I go without one since I work at a desk all day.

    I take it out for a few minutes then I get scared. I have T mobile JOD so I get it in my head to go caseless

    Always use a case since the iPhone 4, currently with my matte black 7 -- Apple leather for day-to-day (switch between black, midnight blue and storm gray) and Apple Silicone (cocoa and ocean blue) when working out

    I'm using a Peel ultra-thin when on home and red leather Apple case when outside. Perfect for me!

    Cheers,

    The phone is just too slippery for me. My hands are not that large either. The combination of the slippery phone and the larger size (only a 7) makes it impossible to use w/o a case. It will certainly hit the floor to often.

    Apple silicone case and glass screen protector on since day one, to preserve resale value.

    I currently have a thin case & a sapphire zagg that I just installed. The phone by itself is way to slippery for me not to drop it.

    Would have to agree, when my new phone is less than 3 months old. Its under heavy protection lol
    Once it reaches 1 year old, things start sliding. Phone gets thrown on the bed and various other things.

    so i would say YES. for the case.

    Screen protectors may not feel important until you see scratches or a crack on your screen. And there's a huge scratch affinity for the people who use Jet black. So better pack it up using a full body skins. I personally suggest one from Gadgetshieldz.

    I have been going case free since I got my iPhone 6s. And I feel the iPhone 7 is more durable, so I haven't used a case on it either although it slightly stresses me out more when it's new. But fingers crossed, I have a pretty good track record of not damaging or scratching my iPhones so let's hope my luck holds out!!

    I love the caseless look of the 7, but I have always used a case on every phone I have ever owned. I have yet to damage a phone, not even a cracked screen or scratch. I believe the cases have done their job well. I don't use uber protective cases either, just enough to give protection from unexpected spills.

    One of my best friends has the 7 in matte black. Initially, she didn't have a case for it and was freaking out about that. Not sure why she didn't get a case at the Apple Store since she got the iPhone as a birthday gift. She ordered a couple on Amazon and told me she felt a lot better after she got a cheap one at the mall while waiting for them to arrive.

    For me personally, I would definitely get a case as well, at least a thin clear one. I've used cases on all of my smartphones except for two Windows Phones that were very durable, and I've ALWAYS used cases on iPhones.

    I'd love to go caseless since I got the sweet jet black iPhone 7 but after a day I bought a otterbox for it.

    Cases are so ugly and bulky. I love the look of iPhones and love to feel it in my hand the way God intended. However, i do need a little extra drop protection for my small hands so.. i just slap on a custom PopSocket to keep a good grip on my phone when in use. Otherwise the phone goes in an empty front pocket whenever i'm out and when i'm home the PopSocket keeps the phone from touching anything when i lay it down on a table. This has been my method with every iPhone i've ever owned starting from the 4 to my 7. I've only ever damaged my phone when once i tripped on a curb (blame it on the a-a-a-a-a alcohol) and it went flying out of my hand. Apple care soon sorted that out and my phone was as good as new (it should be, i pay enough for it, but i save money on cases so... obla-di obla-da) iPhone is the most beautiful phone in the biz.

    Definitely went with a case. Don't quite trust myself without one.
