    I always put a case on my iPhones. I upgrade every year, so I want to maximize resale value for the old device. It usually ends up costing me about $100 a year to upgrade after selling the previous phone.

    saw someone that had an Otterbox on their 5s today

    the funny part was he had to say out loud that he had the 5s since it looked like a 5 hidden inside of that mess of a case

    Saw and handled one in the Apple store. They looked nice and the leather felt nice in the hand. Yes it has a lip on the edge.
    I love mine, feels great in the hand. Very minimal. Customer saw it and he had a Mophie, ended up returning it and getting a leather Apple one so he could enjoy his feather weight device.

    Black otterbox commuter case.

    I really like the naked feel but just isn't worth the risk. The commuter case feels really good too, specifically the i5 case.

    Mine is in a case and it looks like candy. I have a pink and black Speck case. It goes great with the black 5S.

    I have a bunch of cases currently using a casemate silver glam to match but will probably roll naked at some point since I never got to enjoy doing so with my black/slate 5 in fear of scratches lol

    I picked up the blue leather to go on my space grey. They look wonderful together.
    I've always had screen protectors, but so far I'm going without. Not sure if I should slap one on.

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

    If Apple really intended for it to be used without a case, why did they show off their cases for it at the Announcement?

    It's called added revenue! It's the best sales strategy in the world.

    Im currently rocking a Mophie Air on my new iPhone 5S. I dont need it every day, but its nice to know that the reserve is there when I need it. Plus it offers protection for my phone...

    I was thinking the same thing. Apple intends for you to rock it with one of their new leather cases. 
    Lol -Apple intends to upsell you to rock it in a leather case. "would you like fries with that....?"

    Using a temp case until Slipstopper comes out with a 5S version. They say soon, but if not will have to go another direction.

    Will have mine in a proper Otterbox Commuter case in a few days as I have one ordered from Amazon with delivery by Thursday. For now, it's sitting (a little snuggly) in a unproper iTouch 5 rubber case just to protect the sides and back so they don't get scratched. I'm a bit of a stickler for perfect, unmarred gadgets as they look so pretty without scuffs and general wear and tear that happens to all of us daily.

    Wooo, my 5s shipped! However it looks like my case isn't getting here until after the 5s arrives. So, it looks like I'll be rolling naked until it comes.

    I used a case on my first iPhone for about 3 weeks and then decided that it just made the phone bulky and ugly. I've been rolling naked ever since. I use Zagg screen protectors front and back and on my iPhone 4, 4S and 5 I've had side protectors as well. They add only minor thickness and I can enjoy the look and feel of the phone the way Apple designed it. I'm hardly careful with my phones either, they get tossed around on my desk, or in my purse. Except for some very minor scratches on the chamfered edge of my white/silver 5, it looks brand new. I'm going to do the same with my 5S when it arrives.

    I'm rolling naked now but not out of choice! Best Buy didn't get any of the cases, but after having my phone for a few days, I don't know that I want the case anymore lol!

    Yeah, totally naked for me-I do use iSmooth screen protectors though, just in case it ends up in my pocket with change or keys.

    I had decided to heck with it, and was going to roll naked. Until that is, I came across the red leather Apple case. I don't know that I have ever liked a case as much as I like the way this one looks and feels in the hand. $39 well spent.

    I would NEVA go naked simply cause if the following reasons
    1. I bought my phone outright, the 64 gig version that cost me $1129. I worked my *** off for this phone, sweat and tears lol.
    2. This phone is expensive , you might as well protect it.
    3. I plan on selling this when the iPhone 6 gets released.
