    I just use a zagg HD and a elago outfit matrix. Has the protection without the bulk.

    Never had a case here. Don't see why I should change.

    I honestly cannot stand people who put a case on their iphone. Really? You might as well buy a brick phone and use that. The iphone is slim and light and you lose that feature entirely when you put an otterbox on it.

    Having said that, I have a small clear bumper on mine

    I just naught a flip case/wallet folio case. It's cool because the phone is sort of naked and I can show it off, but the back is stuck to the case to protect from drops when closed. I also stuck a Zagg shield on the back

    I would love to run "naked" on my iPhone but I have terrible OCD and scratches, marks, etc really bother me.

    I use an element case which is a close to "naked" as I can get. I had an IS but it caused rainbow effect.

    I dropped my iPhone 5 onto the pavement while stepping out of my truck. The retina display did not shatter or crack and the couple of dings are not noticeable unless you do a full-fledge examination of the device.......Everything works as it did prior to the drop and the device still looks great. I doubt I'll drop it again and no, I will NOT encase it...

    My iPhone 5 has taken so many tumbles and came out fine, maybe a few scratches on the side, but nothing more.

    I do chuckle inside when I see an iPhone inside one of those huge brick case covers. It's like a big wad in their pocket! I too have a very thin clear case on mine. Best of both worlds

    Luck goes both ways, I dropped mine on grass, out of my pocket with a poetic atmosphere case on it and the screen cracked !
    Talk about dumb luck, must have hit a small pebble at the right angle I guess. I didn't see any big rocks in the area.
    $229 later from the apple store, I either use a defender, lifeproof or casemate Xtreme on it.

    Often wish I had the courage many of you have. I would love to leave my phone naked, but I cannot stand the thought of any scratches, dents, dings, etc. Some like to label that as the phone having "character", but I don't fall into that category. So, a minimal bumper for me it is.

    I really would like to leave my phone in a bumper or without anything but I really am worried about getting a scratch or nick on it. So now I am keeping it in a case...

    Although, when it gets older, I might gold plate it and then use it without a case...

    Been rolling naked with iPhones since 3G model came out. Some of you sound crazy to me. "scratches, nicks" Its a phone I really couldn't care what it looks like as long as it functions properly. I know some of my friends that have multiple cases also. The way I see it, it would cost me $230 as the poster a few posts above stated if anything tragic were to happen. If I were to get 3-4 cases at between $30-$45 and maybe a $90 for a lifeproof. Thats about equal just doesn't make much sense to me.

    Don't be silly Jrome, it's a phone! As long as it functions properly......
    My co worker broke the screen on hers when she dropped it also. The thing is, she had a fairly minimal silicone case on it with a lip that "protected" the screen around the edges.

    The same thing happened to my wife's less than a week after she got it. Now she uses an Otterbox. I just ordered a bumper case off of Amazon. That is about as minimal as I can get myself to go.
