    The main reason for me to use a case is for a better grip on the phone. I bought some skateboard tape (the kind that looks like black sandpaper) and cut a couple small strips and put them on the sides of my phone. It is amazingly easy to hold now. The tape works better than egrips, cost less, and is thinner. Highly recommended for anybody going naked.

    Since I got the silver instead of the grey I bought a rubber surround with a clear back for it. Looks similar to the one apple gave out with antenna gate.

    You might want to watch out about how many times you open the case. It is only rated for about 50 times, give or take a few...

    I haven't picked up my 5S yet, but when I do it will be in some sort of a case mostly for a better grip.

    In a case a majority of the time, but naked at least once a day to admire the sexiness of the design and feel.

    Case? Why cover the beauty? I've had ghost armor skin on all my iPhones. Here is my latest matte finish on my space gray. It looks great! It offers better grip and protects from scratches. Ofcouse I don't expect drop protection. That's the risk I will take cause I really hate cases.

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

    I think those were mainly for the 5c. not sure how the cases really hold up but probably just another way to make money.

    I have always had a belt clip case. I like the Seidio combo case. I work outside, and it is a tough case. Others seemed too thick.

    Apple leather case for me. I take it off on occasion to clean out the dust and debris.

    I like the phone naked. It looks great. But it feels... I dunno. Vulnerable? I want to say "fragile" but, it also feels very solid. Luckily, the Apple leather cases look fantastic as well.

    I think that a lot of people want to go naked but want to hear horror stories about those who have gone naked and have destroyed their devices to convince them finally not to do it.

    I personally don't use a case. That being said I can't stand when people say they don't use a case because "that's how apple intended it to be". Apple intended for the phone to be sold, they could care less what you put the phone in.

    A naked iPhone is just amazingly small n light. It doesn't feel like u r lugging a brick. That's why ppl wanna roll naked n show off as well. I am going full body wrapped my 5s as well as a case but something minimal. That is my version or my aim for "nude" iPhone.

    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!!!

    As much as I can't stand cases I wouldn't mind trying that one. Seems like it would be minimal while providing some kind of scratch protection

    I never used cases before on my iPhones since 2008 (each phone 3G thru 5S) and I'm really liking the Apple leather one.

    what gets me all the time is that when I take the case off of my phone, it looks so incredibly fantastic that I want to keep it off.
    Same here!!

    .....except then i chicken out 30 seconds later and make haste to reinstall the case before a massive tragedy happens.....
