    I love the look of my white iPhone 5 without a case, but also don't want to get it damaged. I have an incipio Dual Pro case now that I use when I am out, but usually have it off when I am here at home or at work. Thinking about getting an Otterbox or waiting for Lifeproof to come out with their case for it.

    Have had a case since Day 1, but just took it off when I realized it was almost impossible to take off due to Zagg shields on both front and back, I decided it had to go--I had to wreck it to get it off, anyway. Got a scratch on the phone near the connector for my troubles, too! At least it's not really visible. Love going naked, but I"m nervous...

    The thing is: when we have a case on, are we more likely to drop it?! I think so, but I'll soon find out for sure. At lease the Zaggs are there for scratches.

    Ok, my white one got naked last night. I had a thin clear TPU case on it the last 10 days or so and it is already turning yellow. The phone is pretty, why cover it. It was a little difficult for me mentally since my 4 had a fairly bulky case for the last 2 years. I got AppleCare this time though, so when I drop it enough times I can always get it fixed/replaced. I also figured I can't think of any other metal/glass object I own that I have covered. I don't put a plastic case on my watch (which is more expensive than my phone), wedding ring, etc. Sure they are scratched up, but I think I will be replacing my phone long before those 2 items. Might as well enjoy it and when it falls, hopefully it won't be on cement.

    By the way, my iphone 4 had many scratches and nicks all over the glass on both sides only around the edges where the case rubbed. The metal was also scratched. I did take the cases off and wipe it every week or 2, but I do think some cases do more harm than good as far as scratching goes.

    I gave in and got a case for my iPhone 5 decided on getting the belkin max grip grey and blue one. So far liking it but I'm so used to my speck candy shell but 40 dollars for that I got the same "shock proof" and "air pockets" on this belkin case for 22 dollars at Verizon with my 25% discount wasn't that bad of a price. Anybody else use belkin max grip? What are your thoughts on the case. I like it but I'm kind of unsure.

    I was planning on putting a screen protector and a regular thing preferably clear case on my iPhone 5. Then I found myself in the Bestbuy store looking at cases with my wife and the Otterbox Defender was at an irresistable price. The Zagg screen protector was $20 and all the iPhone 5 cases ranged from $20 to $25. So together it would cost me $45, while the Defender was $49. So I though ok I'll get the Commuter with the screen protector. It would have ended up being more money than the Defender. So I just bought the defender and I'm glad I did. It's not as bulky as the iPhone 4 model although it does hide the beauty of the anodized aluminum. I'll wait until the screen protectors come down in price or buy some cheap ones on ebay and then later I'll get another case when I feel like basking in the iPhone 5's beauty.

    I slightly thought about it, but buying cases is like buying clothes, when you have an iPhone. So many choices. My baby needs some gear.

    Heck no! I didn't encase my iPhone 3G or the 4S and neither will I encase my iPhone 5. If I drop it and damage it, I'll suck it up and get it replaced and try to be more careful the next time, but that's Just Me, D...

    No, I do not, but I have been thinking about testing one out for the back of the phone, but I haven't decided yet.

    Had to have my first 5 replaced after 4 months (power button went dead). That one had a few nice dents in the aluminum. Never used a case, but considering it now with this second chance.

    I roll my phone naked on the weekend but that's about it. I work in an crappy environment and my phone would be beaten if I didn't have a case on it.

    My phone looks perfect right now, but my power button has gone crazy as of late only working some of the time.

    So I will be making a trip to the apple store next week after I get settled in my move.

    I dread driving the 45 minutes there but it's nice to get it replaced.

    Being that I've only had my iPhone 5 for two days, it looks just like the attached photo taken from the Apple website...

    None of my iPhones have been naked for longer than the time it takes to change my cover. Sometimes when I'm sat at home I allow my iPhone 5 to be open to the elements and for me to admire how much of a gorgeous bit of kit it is, but its not long until its being wrapped up again. I personally dislike silicone cases, so I use good quality cases that expose top and bottom of the phone and side buttons. My current car also has aluminium on the back so I still get that feel of quality.

    I'm always very conscientious about having an overlay screen protector on my phone. I might have to go bareback without a case and see how I get on and live life on the edge a little.

    I'll never use a screen protector, but I don't think I could ever roll completely caseless either. I'd like to try out a bumper to cut down on some of the heft from the case, but I'm just not careful enough with my phone to use no case at all.

    I never use screen protectors or covers/cases. No matter how many scratches I'll accumulate, there's no way I'm keeping this phone for more than 2 years anyways.
