    If you leave it naked and drop it and scratch it up you can always put it in a case later to cover that up. Why ruin a masterpiece?

    Me too. Don't like to use any type of case. Screen protector is enough.

    Well, that's because people live in a world where they are just so afraid of the IFs.
    Fewer and fewer people are willing to take risk and enjoy life.
    That's why the case makers and especially screen protectors are able to scam legitimentally off people.

    My broken Otterbox Defender from my iPhone 4 disagrees. It's broken in 2 places and still keeps the phone looking pristine. The drops needed to crack that case would have shattered the phone.

    Awesome! Andddddd how much did you pay for your defender?

    My 4 is almost always naked. I dont see that changing for the 5. If I do buy a case it will be when I get one from 5 below or amazon. I refuse to pay more than $5 for a case.

    Plus I have to buy a stupid connector for my iHome.

    I've owned every iteration of the iPhone and have never used a case. I've also never had a cracked or heavily scratched screen.

    The greatest thing about the phone is its beautiful design. Covering that up with some gigantic rubber monstrosity is like putting a car bra on an Aston Martin.
    Until you wake up one morning and see a bunch if rock chips on that Aston martin and think to your self "F***" lol

    I think it should depend on the user. In my case it is better to use protection.

    I buy Apple Care for one reason. Near naked iPhone. I do love me some shear coverage (invisible shield) though.

    I always use a Zagg full body skin, no matter what iPhone I have. Seems to be the best of naked look and protection!

    Count me among the over-protective souls. This is the most expensive phone I've ever purchased, so I feel the need to protect it. And, yes ... I already bought a case for the phone that hasn't been shipped to me. I grabbed a rubber (case, that is) at the VZW store the other day for $15. That said, I will likely keep the phone naked for the first week or two to fully enjoy its beauty.

    Not me. I always roll with protection on. High quality screen protector and a tactile case. Lasts longer that way. I practice safe iPhone.

    Naked. I've had my iPhone 4 naked pretty much for the entire two years I've had it and there are only very minor scratches. It looks too nice to cover up.

    $20 for a defender and $200 for the glass.


    Reason enough for me.

    I'll be naked until my case arrives, there's no way I'm risking damage any longer than I have to. Even if you've never dropped it before, the chances that you never drop a phone are pretty slim. There's two kinds of people; people who have dropped a phone, and people who will.

    Mine will be in an Otterbox while I'm working or snowboarding but naked in the evenings/weekends. I'm not a fan of cases. My job would destroy it without the box so it will be necessary then. Also I wear jeans that would make your girlfriend jealous so naked just slides in the pockets much easier.

    I have had the my iP4 naked for 6 months now, except while traveling needing a battery boost case using Nav all day. I love it naked, except when it slides off my lap into the seat crack of my F150. But I am too chicken to try it with the iP5. I am very tempted to. Thinner, lighter wants me to try it all that much more.

    I'm so OCD that I'm going to put full clear skin protection then put it in a transparent poetic case. Total cost. About $10

    Had mine naked forever and figured I'd wrap that rascal...three days later dropped my phone and cracked it. With the case ON. Didn't seem to matter. $100 for SquareSpace warranty and problem solved
