    Initially, but due to the easy scratching on the black model I will probably case up soon.

    I agreed.
    Greedily lash my fingers over the phone and screen. it's like my phone making sweet sweet love with my hands.

    I know it's a beautiful device, I'm just worried about scratches in the aluminum backing and the sides. That's the ONLY reason I'm putting it in a case. I've had my 4 in a case for 2 years and with the exception of a scuff on the metal banding it looks like it just came out of the box. That's what I want out of my 5 too.

    Well then. If your afraid then theres nothing I can say.
    Take risk and enjoy.
    What's the use of keeping in excellent condition only for the next user to enjoy?
    Moreover. The case you use may scratch the metal banding too ^^

    That's exactly my dilemma as well Saw a few videos on YouTube about how easily the aluminum scratches if dropped or the paint comes off or something. I was hoping to roll naked but the OCD part of me got the best of me so I ended up shelling out 38 dollars for a speck candy shell case my favorite cases I've used since my iPhone 4. Shock resistant and beautiful made cases. I don't wanna risk anything happening to this phone even the minor scratches will trigger the OCD in me. My iPhone 4S was naked most of the time only cuz the glass never looked scratched to me.

    I have never gone without a caseuntil now. I do have a Speck sitting on my desk, but for now all my i5 has is a screen protector. Such an amazing device to hold, i still can't get over the thinness and lightness. Amazing.

    I was initially going to get a screen protector, but now I'm not so sure.
    I've been rolling naked for a day now.

    I'm going naked this time. If the scratches are to bad ill swap via AC before selling next year. I have a case on my 4S and I hate it but due to how fragile it is I have too. The 5 seems to be much more durable from the drop tests so far.

    This is what I did... Speck Candyshell (black/slate) on mine, Fabshell for my wife's. We have a set of Bodyguardz coming in for each which I'll apply and decide on going naked or not. The paint issues do have me a bit concerned but the phone still feels nice with the cases on them. My iP4 was naked, no protection at all. Had a few scratches on the back but very light surface scratches, probably from something else in my pocket inadvertently.

    Was planning on going naked until I dropped mine. Not even 24 hours old and the corner has a dent in it. Ordered a case-mate barely there to hide the dent and offer a little protection

    No case. I just put an egrips on the back which is just a black sticker that is very grippy. Otherwise I think it will slip out of my hand at some point. I have owned every iPhone and never use a case, just egrips on the back.

    Mine is naked but I'm going to get a case for it for while I'm at work. I work in a garage so don't want to risk anything happening to it there.

    I'm definitely in the naked category, but I may buy a Lifeproof case just to see how it goes.

    Normally I purchase a case, however this phone seems so much more durable. I love how light she is.

    I had ghost armor do the front back and sides clear and am quite happy. I actually put gun metal carbon on the sides which looks bad ***. As of now, I won't be casing it unless I god for bid nick it with a drop or something. Truly love this phone.

    I couldn't risk going naked with mine. So I bought the case mate barly there case and the invisibleSHIELD by zagg. Very well worth the buy I think. Especially the screen protector. Stops scratches and is military grade. Used on the helicopter blades. And best of all. Only cost 14.99.Attachment 19361

    I'm planning on rolling caseless. However, I will be getting an OtterBox for when I'm out biking and whatnot.

    Nope, mine will get a screen protector on the back and a nice Speck Products case on it. I prefer to keep my iDevices looking new.

    Naked at the mo, but have just purchased a leather pouch for it for when it has to go in my pocket with other things.

    After all the case hunting, I'm rolling naked for now. I simply cannot find a single case that I like. I hate TPU/silicone, hate cheap plasticky cases. I just want a metal sleek minimalistic one that has tiny bumpers for the screen, apparently that's impossible to find.
