    I was going to go naked also but it was so light in my pocket I just knew I would forget it was there and something would happen .. I have went naked for the most part on my 4 and 4s with no scratches etc .. If fact my 4s was mint and sold for high dollars .. With this one I put in otterbox just to be safe

    Correct me if I am wrong, but with Applecare+, which costs $99, you are covered for 2 years, and you can do 2 claims within that 2 year period, each claim costing $49, right? So no case or screen protector...and if I smash it, it will cost me $49 plus taxes?? Sounds like that would be a better way to roll.

    I ran naked with my iPhone 4 and plan to do the same with the iPhone 5, most of the time. I do some high risk outdoor recreation activities (e.g., mountain biking and backcountry skiing) and will likely pick up a case for those situations. I have a white version that is so far very durable.

    Totally rolling naked with my white iPhone 5. I don't know if I'd be as brave with the black/slate version though, as it sounds like that one is more susceptible to scratching.

    It would seem that in most cases the best version of the iPhone to roll naked with is a white one, the scratches are harder to see with out looking hard, unless you crack your screen you probly won't notice many. Just my observation from owning white iPhones.

    I just can't justify putting a case on this beautiful design. I will most likely get a Zagg on the front (maybe on the back, but I don't know how that will work with the metal on it)

    I'm running naked on my bed only, just to cuddle around after a day covered with a case

    That's the way i see it. If mine gets scuffed and scratched up badly, then at the very least, it's a 49 dollar fix. As it is, I'm pretty careful with my gadgets. My wife even jokes about that. No case here on the black one.

    I went with a case on both mine and my partners iPhone 4's and just sold them via gum tree getting $400 each because they were in such perfect condition. After seeing a few vids of people dropping and scuffing up the iPhone 5 today i changed my mind about rolling naked with our Black 64GB new additions and purchased cases.

    Feel much better now knowing they are safe and still very light and thin.

    Bought the speck case but now I miss seeing the gorgeous new back of the iPhone 5. I'm pretty grateful that this is one of the only stressful choices in my day.

    Oh gosh I went through this dilemma twice! Bought a speck case then regretted it cuz I couldn't see the beauty of this phone. So I returned the case. And then I bought another one cuz I didn't want to somehow end up dropping it lol so I bought another one the next day... Ended up returning it last night -_- I have a problem.

    The next best thing to rolling naked is this....I just bought this today. Lets see how it holds up before my 30 day return policy is up lol....
    Rocketfish Mobile - Soft Shell Case for Apple iPhone 5 - Clear - RF-A5T2C

    This will be the next one I try....the only problem with this is I know the plastic back would get scratched. That is why I went with the Rocketfish first.

    I want to roll naked sooooooooo bad, but am so afraid about scratching the aluminum backing or the antenna band. Now that we've had our phones for a few days, those with the white version....are you still rolling naked and if so, are there any blemishes??

    Exxod, are you "babying" your phone?? I throw it in my pocket (alone, no keys or money) and I never use a screen protector. So no scratches, scuffs, dings or anything on your phone or antenna band on outside of phone?

    I have both these cases (after deciding that I'm not brave enough to go nakies). I bought the Griffin first, and scuffed it after I took it off to remove a speck of lint that got caught in the back. When angling the phone back into the case, the sharp edge of the bottom of the phone scuffed the inside of the clear back. Other than that, it's a great case. I went back to Best Buy and bought the Rocketfish clear soft shell, and that's what the phone is in now. Not bad looking. I did buy another Griffin for later though. I also bought a Rocketfish hardshell in white. Rocketfish™ Mobile - Hard Shell Case for Apple iPhone 5 - White - RF-A5H2WT
    Dangit, I forgot I also ordered one of these last night from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0093CDLM0/ref=pe_175190_21431760_M3C_ST1_3p_dp_1 Figured for $10 it's worth a shot.

    Here's the Poetic Atmosphere case. I received it tonight. Fits nice, just not really sure about the dark grey on the edges.

    I may have a "case" problem.....

    *edit* OK I've already removed the Poetic Atmosphere. Back to using the Rocketfish clear soft shell till something else catches my eye.

    I dropped my phone earlier today luckily it fell from waist height and my foot broke the fall. So it just slowly hit the floor. No scratches anywhere I checked this phone obsessively for 10 minutes looking If I scratched something. Looks like I broke the phone in:P don't feel like I need a case now after all-_- at least the phone didn't get a scratch or dent or anything. *phew*

    Yeah, when it's in my pocket, it's the only thing in that pocket. And my 5 is still pristine.
