    I've always used a case and a screen protector with my phones. My iPhone 4 currently has a Zagg screen protector and the PowerMat wireless charging case. It's been over a year now and the case has been great. If I get an iPhone 5, I'll definitely look at PowerMat again.

    Had a bumper on my iPhone 4. But this time I may go with just SP and a slip case for when I'm out and about. Not a lot of cases out for the 5 yet, and even fewer of them are available to ship. A lot of them have ship dates of October

    my iphone 4 has been naked and proud for the past 2 months and ive actually come to appreciate the design alot more rather than have some bulky case on it. Ive also learned that when you have a naked iphone your reflexes improve and so does your though process because if i think i might drop it or i am going to drop i either change its position or instinctively grip it/dive to catch it dramatically

    I have been using it naked since the first iPhone and every generations after that. I suppose the new one is not going to change me. Instead looking at the new design I think it is a waste to cover up the beautiful aesthetic back plate...
    Just my 2 cents.

    I ordered a case-mate thin clear case as I've always kept mine in a case but after reading all of the responses I'm REALLY tempted to go nude. I really like the looks of the 5 so no case would be a plus there.

    I plan to keep mine naked. I don't mind a couple of scratches on my phone. It's an ultrathin ultralight smartphone, and I like it that way.

    I never want to use a case, but always end up doing so. My previous iPhones spent a lot of time in my pockets - often times with keys - and I worry like hell that I'll damage it without a case.

    it's crazy the amount of money some people spend on cases

    i swear, it seems like some people i know could potentially by another phone if they were to just set that money to the side somewhere

    Going naked as I have with all previous iPhones and phones before. For a while I used a holster or belt case, but now that's out of fashion and the phones are smaller and lighter. My phones are always pristine and sell for top $$ on eBay. If I pocket my phone, it gets the pocket alone. I don't leave my phone on restaurant tables or bar tops. I'm just careful. when I ski, I tether my phone using a bungee made by Kenu and I don't take it out in precip..I'll use a floating case when boating.

    The only time I use a case is when I'm out for a long day and know I will have heavy use and no easy access to power (such as a long day at an amusement park), and then I will slap on a battery case to bump the life. (hahaha, not sure what my typo was there but autocorrect replaced life with LTE). I never use a screen protector, just not needed.

    My question to all u iphone exhibitionists is how many of u are white collar workers? Im in construction. My phone takes a beating just being clipped to my waste. And thats the absolute safest place i can store it. My buddy works in a lab. We both have lifeproof cases. Im on my second one, his looks like he just bought it this morning.

    Ever so often i'll run it nude for a day or two. (weekend) I find during those times i have to treat it like a newborn. Although i enjoy revealing its beauty the constant cuddling is more than i can handle at times
    i too work in and around the construction industry and so far never had any bad luck, not even close tbh. i am very careful with my device - probably more than the average human being lol

    i used to go with an otterbox just while at work until that POS broke and its been naked city 24/7 ever since (NO screen protectors either)

    to put it bluntly, some people just need them. like its pre determined they will drop it smh

    I will most definitely be rolling commando on my white i5

    Screen protector for sure, will probably buy a mophie battery case as a backup source of power and that's it.

    It depends on the material. If it's anodized aluminum, then no worries. If it's painted steel, we may have a problem. Time will tell.
    Anodized. Its been confirmed, and I would expect nothing less from apple.

    if the future is remotely close to the past, then my iphone 5 will be eating pavement at some point. I have never owned a phone that hasnt been dropped. I applaud those of you who have that je ne se pa quoi that makes you never drop your phones.

    I dropped my iPhone a few times naked alright. Didn't break the glass ::success::
    Still. I'm rolling it naked. Doesn't matter if it drops.
    It's just too beautiful to cover up. Risk dropping. It's good.

    But to respond to the thread. I will be cuddling my 5 for the first few weeks until that new lifeproof one-zy arrives. Then its back to handling like a teenage boy again👍❕
    im a garbage man...always roll naked..although i keep my phone in the truck in a pouch like case. i have dropped it on the metal dash of a truck though without so much of a scratch.

    iphone 5...naked, cant ruin apples design!
