    When I was running caseless I never dropped it.

    Put the speck on and dropped it within the hour.

    My white one started getting too dirty even while on a case so I ended up trading it for a black one.

    I just got an iPhone 5 today and they said I have 14 days if I didn't like color I could trade it in, but then again I got it for tmobile, idk if that is carrier specific.
    Btw, this thread actually made me feel better for not buying a case. Lol

    The only time I have heard of Apple doing this when a person is past the point of return is when the color the person should receive is out of stock.

    I have googled for the last few days looking for pictures or articles/posts about how the white 5 looks after several months caseless. I really, really want to go caseless with the phone, I don't generally drop my phones , and I know the white doesn't show damage like the black, but all the postings I can find about wear and tear seem to only be about the black phones. I found one in regards to the white and dude had dropped it so it had more than just wear and tear.

    Does anyone have a white 5 that has been naked for the last few months and has been handled somewhat carefully that can give me an idea of discolouration, finish, how it's holding up?

    I googled and binged and I gave up finding something I'd hoped was helpful and have it turn out to be about the black one. I don't care about the black one. It's why I didn't get the black one. Heh.
    Here you go: got it on the first day and naked since then. Dropped a few times on cement. A few small dents on the edge.

    Why not just get Zagg to cover it? This is what I'm contemplating for my next iPhone. I usually put my iPhones in cases from day one either Lifeproof or Otterbox. So when I get the new one the old one looks like I just took it out of the box. The problem is that means nothing by then, I always skip a model before getting a new one, because the resale value is what it is. No one is going to give me more money just because it is almost brand new. At over a year there's no warranty so I'm like what is the point of buy a $100 case. The next one I'm going to cover it in Zagg and get Applecare.
    Plus one on the Zagg. I have a white 4s and a white 5. My 5 went into a Zagg on the date of purchase, and I never have an issue when I decide to go caseless for the day or week. Definitely worth the money that was spent on it.

    The white iPhone holds up a lot better than the black, that's for sure. I have the white and I've dropped it once, but other than that it looks like the day I bought it. I do have a Caudabe Veil on it which is good for scratch protection and a screen protector I bought on Amazon for cheap. But that's all I really need.

    My white held up well for 10 months till I shattered the screen this week. There was a speck of dirt that entered the edge of the home button though.

    I'd say if you have AppleCare+, easy access to a store and haven't relocated countries as I did - it's safe enough to go caseless.

    I've only taken my iPad Mini to the gym once and it didn't go to well. It fell from the treadmill face down. Luckily it had a Speck CandyShell case on so it didn't get damaged at all.

    I've had the black iPhone for about two and a half weeks and been going naked with it. Already noticed a scuff on the back and I've never dropped it. However, my dad has had his white one naked since November and his looks darn near perfect still

    Most of the time you can find someone on craigslist who wants to trade for the color you have.

    I recently got a brand new iPhone after dropping my last one in the toilet, ended up buying a black speck case for it but I'm itching to use it naked. But I film videos with my iPhone and set my phone down on tables and pavements from time to time why risk getting it sticky or scuffed up? But ahhhh! I miss rocking a naked iPhone.

    I always, Always go naked with my phones. I stronly dislike the feel of cases and screen protectors.

    And I witnessed something "funny" or interesting you might say last week at work with a friend that has a case for his iPhone 4. The case had collected so much dust and small grain of sand etc inside of it so when he took the phone out of the case it was scratched a lot! More so than going caseless.

    How has your experience been with foregoing a screen protector? I hate the screen protectors I use because they eventually get scratches in them and take away a degree of screen quality to. Part of me thinks "hey dummy, that is why you are using a screen protector, so 'it' takes on the scratches instead of your screen". But another part me thinks that the glass itself might not have necessarily scratched in those situations given its resistence compared to a plastic sheething.

    In my experience screen protectors get scratched very easily. Scratches that would not happen if you didn't have a screen protector. Once I tried that STK glass shield on an iPhone ($30 about). It was nice and looked like the real phone almost but boy the first day it got many small scratches. I have never ever gotten a scratch on any on my phones that has bothered me in years. Sure a few of these micro scratches I have got that you have to hold the phone in a specific angle in the light to see them. Those ones I have gotten a few but those are never visible in real life usage.

    I am always very careful with my phones. I rather take some small scratches rather than using a protector that not only destroys the image slightly, but they take away the good feel of the touchscreen too. I want to enjoy my phones naked and see and feel the beauty of them! What's the point of having a beautiful phone if you hide all of it. It's just a phone!
