    As much as I love the look of the phone naked, I just can't do it. I want my phone to look pristine when I go to sell it. I do love looking at it but I know the moment I go without a case I will do something stupid and break it. I took the otterbox case off of my Galaxy S II once cause I loved the naked feel on that and I dropped it and shattered the screen. Never again.

    Depends on how I'm feeling, lately I haven't found a case worth using so My iPhone 5 is mostly naked (unless I have the battery case on).

    I was using my 5 naked for 4 months but I just had it replaced due to a faulty power button and now I'm using a slim case. It has minimal protection but I think it will prevent scratches on the chamfered edges.

    I am disabled so my phone doesn't get out much. lol I used to carry it in a wallet type case when I went out, otherwise only with a screen protector. Today I put it in a hard case mate. I like the look.

    currently "rolling naked" with my 5... love the feel and form of the phone, but hate the chips and scratches on the black sides

    My iPhone is living naked but i've managed to get a British flag skin on the back yet soon will be removing the front side and maybe i'll go without screen protector.. Any suggestion? Go without one or with one?

    I always use a screen protector. I can probably live with scratches on the phone body but not the screen. Remember, you'll see that scratch every time you use your phone.

    I think you people are nuts! This is my first iPhone and I would be super nervous about moving around without a case. Besides, at some point, I will sell it for an upgrade and I want it to be in pristine condition!

    Sometimes I use a bumper but I also do use e mophie helium case which is alright but adds some weight, nothing big though.

    Covering that up with some gigantic rubber monstrosity is like putting a car bra on an Aston Martin.

    I've always used a transparent case due to the the 4 and 4s having glass backs. But now my iPhone 5 is naked. I'm glad apple went to the aluminum back.

    I just took my case off to clean my iPhone and it looks so good naked. I have a white iPhone 5 and the edges just shine so brightly. I want to keep the case off but I'm nervous about it.

    I have started using my iPhone 5 naked. It's been 6 months now. If I don't use it naked now. When will I? After selling it!!

    I did at first when I got mine. Dropped it and cracked the front screen 48hrs after I got it. Put it in an Otterbox Defender to save the glass from cracking out the rest of the way and still haven't had a chance to get it replaced.

    Sad part is that I gave the wife my old 4s which was fine until she cracked it 3 months later. Now both are going to be replaced and I'm going to put a Taktik case on both of em.

    My phone is still pretty new, so I am too paranoid to go 'naked' now Maybe after 6 months or a year I wont care so much

    That is a good point. I definitely have an issue either way. Like you, I figure when will I actually enjoy having such a beautiful phone if I keep it covered? I will end up selling it and someone else will enjoy its beauty. That's not fair. But then again, I don't want to damage my phone, because I will look at it as if it is ruined if I see blemishes on it. I go back and forth over this all the time. I should probably just go naked. I have apple care plus anyway. If it breaks, I can just pay the $50 and get another one.

    Exactly.. I have the same thought myself. Why do we pay for Apple Care

    That's the reason I got Applecare+ is so I could go naked, now if I happen to use up my two replacements somehow then I would definitely start throwing a case on it but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that.

    I think I am going to do this. At least for a little while at first. Probably throw a screen protector on but no case.

    Couldn't go naked. Would kill resale value. Besides, just get a case like the Caudabe Veil. Doesn't even look like you have a case on and at least you get scratch and bump protection.

    That's true. But it still isn't the same as going naked.

    I don't know if anyone noticed but the edge of the phone where it meets the screen it has a tiny lip that adds protection
