    I picked up iPhone 5(Slate Black) last year in March and it has been living in a case from Day 1. I have used lot of cases(bumper case, Casemate rPet, Casemate Brushed Aluminium, Apple leather case product RED) and wasted lot and lot of money.

    No doubt, all these cases have done a great job and I have a small ding near the lock button which is noticeable at a certain angle.

    Yesterday, I met one of my friend who has also Black/Slate iPhone 5 who bought around same time and he has NEVER used a case and I was quite amazed to see the condition of his phone. It looked like iPhone 5s as the color on the champfered edges have turned greyish. So, I have finally decided to take off the case and now using naked and loving every inch of it.

    I have done enough of injustice to this beautiful piece of hardware but not anymore.. Let me know, how u guys are keeping it and how it has held up?

    Cheers!

    I don't ever cover my devices and they usually hold up nicely. My iPhone 5, although still looks good, has visible war wounds on the edges, but it's all good....

    I have realized that worn out look actually gives a statement to the device! Better late than never.. lol

    (laughing)...No doubt....Still, I'm starting to see a lot more people not using any protective casing on their iPhones, and I like that. It is too gorgeous of a device to cover up, in my opinion, but I do respect those who do, especially for re-sale purposes.

    Still prefer to get my phones in cases because of my perpetually oily hands.

    I am not a big screen phone kinda guy, but my case (Spigen Neo Hybrid) actually makes my iPhone more comfortable to hold. I take it off and the phone feels like it is about to fall out of my hand, I guess there is the factor of not being accustomed to it.. I work in an environment that is not conducive to any phone being out of a case so I am not taking it off. I do envy those who can and do.

    I can understand mate. I work in a IT industry(a complete desk job, yuck!) so I can afford to carry my device without a case.

    I agree with you on this. Hope Apple comes up with a gripper phone in June. I am on "Say NO to cases "campaign now

    totally agreed. I never use cases. manufacturers take time and effort to make the phone a work of art!

    lol. Yesterday, I noticed deliberately in the mall that people who had cases on iPhones had some weird art.. Elephants, their own pictures, circles.. all good dam drawing.. It was funny!

    Why hide the beauty of the device with some absurd "drawing"

    This is the only reason I put my Apple case back on a couple days ago. But now, I'm motivated to go streaking again. Lol
