    Just bought the 5S. Used to have iphone 4 without screen protector or case so it will be the same for the 5S. No screen protector or case. I just like my iPhone naked

    Don't have my 5S (or is it 5s? I'm confused) yet but as soon as I do, I'm putting a case on it. I've dropped my 5 more than 7 times and have dented all the corners and slightly cracked the back glass. Against all reason, the screen still hasn't cracked but I'm not taking that risk with the new one. Not to mention, the back has a few pits and scratches and I had the white one. Getting the space grey this year and I don't know if it resists scratches any better.

    Using the Element Ion 5 Case. I had a Mophie case for my 4S and I have one for the 5S but keeping it in my bag for emergencies. I travel a lot for work and I am in the warehouse a lot so I don't always have access to power.

    I use an adopted case and a zagg invisible shield so it's minimal. I dropped my last phone (s4) within its first month and hated it after that

    Well, that's a relief! Anyone who saw the condition of my 5 would probably start crying. Happy to hear the 5S will be better.

    I really like using my smokin' hot silver iPhone 5s without a case! I did come upon a neon pink iHome case for $5.14 & had been using it since I bought the case! The case does work my nerve cause I have to take the bottom part off so I can plug my car iPod cord into it! So I thought oh nothing will happen to my phone, I'll just take the case off! Only had the case on for less than an hour when I dropped it onto the street! I screamed & cried like the girl I am! I had planned on exchanging my silver phone for the gold before my 30 days are up! But not now, for my poor phone has a scratch on the top, a scratch on the streaker & a ding on the bottom by the headphone port! I'm crushed cause I'm usually very careful! Needless to say it's back in it case & I'll be going to get a Zagg screen protector on it tomorrow! I guess this little puppy can't play with the big dogs & go without a case! So, this pup will just chill on the porch!!!
    This was oddly endearing. Hope your iPhone isn't too messed up.

    Black defender series otterbox for my 5S. I don't mind the extra bulk and it has a built in screen protector. I had the Commuter series, but I like the Defender better. I plan on getting more cases though, for decoration more than protection since the Defender is all I'd ever need for that.

    Went from Defender to LifeProof for the moment (the LifeProof for the 5 fits the 5s perfectly, minus the ability to use Touch ID of course). I'm waiting for the Preserver to be released for the 5s, then I'll jump to that and return this LifeProof.

    I like to upgrade my iPhone every year & an important factor of being able to do that is to keep my phone in the best condition as possible for sell in purposes. I personally think that the iPhone 4/4s 5/5s are great to look at but not very nice to hold. The iphone 5c is a better design practically (IMHO). If your not keen on cases then a screen protector is still a must. I have a S line case which cost me 1 off ebay & it's perfect. Adds no bulk, adds good grip, easy access to all ports etc & cost barely nothing & adds protection & looks good. That along with a screen protector that cost me 1 for 10 & my phone is protected for the sum of 2 & makes sure my phone will hold its value. iPhone 5S Naked or in a case?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1382802358.616208.jpg

    Which suede sleeve do you use? Does it fit over the Apple leather case easily?

    I bought one of the new Apple leather cases and I really love it. Also rocking my standard matte screen protector and suede sleeve.

    Leather one feels great in the hand as well. Picked up a Speck with grips today, nice case but doesn't look that great. Also have a UAG black, looks slick on the white phone.

    Hi stefano. I earlier had HTC one and that too without a case and it dropped off my pocket and was broken into pieces. 5 months later that is now(in new year) I have brought iphone5c and brought a case from UAG. I liked the case.

    After experimenting with a couple of different cases, I've settled on one "go to" case and thats the Gold Spigen Tough Armor case...it's clean and doesn't add to much bulk, I really like it.

    I can't imagine not using a case, especially with an iPhone. The 5s' body, while nice-looking, is not the most blemish-resistant, to put it mildly. If you want to keep your phone without Knicks and scratches a case is pretty much mandatory IMO.

    I have mine in a case. I've got a bumper which covers the back and sides. The bumper is clear on the back so that the gold colour of the phone can still be seen. I then put the phone into a leather effect slip case which protects the screen when it's in my bag.

    I've got it in a case. I don't want the back/sides to get scratched. However the back of my case is transparent so the gold finish can be seen. I used to have black iPhones so they were always covered, but this time wanted something that would show the beautiful design.
