    Hello everyone. I know there have been threads about this before but I want to get some new views on this subject. I keep going back and forth between having my 6 plus in a case and going naked. I really like the phone with no case but get a little worried. Anyone here gone ceaseless since you got the phone? Or always have a case on it?

    I don't think a new thread on the topic is going to yield any different opinion on the matter...

    I'm in agreement with the comment above. Having said that, my iPhone 6 Plus is case-less, but You need to decide for yourself whether to go with or without a case. It's your phone.

    If you drop things all the time, use a case. If you don't drop things all the time, go naked. . . . Either way, have AppleCare+.

    No offense but why are you so condescending? I agree the OP should have done some research but why not just tell him without the sarcastic tone and dots...

    I usually switch it depending on my mood or what I'm doing. If I'm going to the gym, I'll keep the case on but if at home or sitting on my deck something in the terms of relaxing I'll go naked.

    Because this question is asked time and time again. No new things have come up in phone protection since the iPhone 6 Plus launched that would give different answers today versus the answers that were given in September 2014.

    Even going back over 20 years to a time when phones first came out of the bags that held them and their batteries, there haven't been significant changes to the case/no case argument. Screen protectors and phone skins only go so far in protecting a phone.

    Pros for using a case:
    1. It protects the phone in the event of a fall
    2. It adds to the ability to grip or hold the phone
    3. It protects the phone from nicks and scratches in day-to-day use and storage
    4. It makes a fashion statement
    5. It helps to distinguish your phone from others if several phones are placed on a table.

    Cons for using a case:
    1. It adds bulk to the phone
    2. It hides the look and beauty of the phone
    3. The case may get in the way of the speakers/mic/camera if it has a loose fit
    4. The additional cost.

    I'm sure that I left some out. However, these answers haven't changed since the Motorola StarTac was the most popular phone to have.

    I'm getting a case if nothing more than to add "GRIP". The iPhone 6/6Plus are VERY slippery. The Apple Leather cases add a decent amount of grip and are low profile not to mention they also look GREAT. Just my .02 cents.

    You seriously can't figure out why a subject matter that was discussed to ad nauseam years ago would garner this type of reaction? ...

    The only time I ever seem to drop a phone is when it's naked, so I tend to use a tpu case now if I can. Better to me if it's translucent so I can still see the design features of the phone

    I had a clear case for my iphone 4S, but even the feeling of holding the phone with the case is different than without it. I kept the case though because I drop my phone a lot. Took it off only 6 months before replacing the phone.

    I have had the Adidas hard case for a month now. Took the phone off from it yesterday and saw there was very tiny stones gotten between the case and the phone. No need to say but they caused small dents to the metal body of the phone. Now not sure should I return the case or was it "working as intended " lol.

    One advantage of using a case 99% of the time is when I remove it to clean the screens, it looks like a brand new iPhone 5. No marks, scratches or scuffs. I get to admire it for a few minutes. It's like having a treat. I have only removed my Otterbox Defender 4 times in 22 months.

    The one big advantage of having a really good case and screen protector is that if you decide every September to get a new iPhone then just remove the case and protector, give the phone a good clean alcohol wipe and list it as being in mint condition on the Marketplace here or on Swappa and get a good resale value to help fund the next iPhone purchase:-)

    Depends on the mood... Sometimes naked, sometimes in an Apple leather case, sometimes in a Spigen Neo Hybrid case...

    I never have a case on mine, unless I go dirt bike riding and then I put my LifeProof Frē on it. My iPhone 6 has plenty of dents and scratches on it, along with a small crack/chips in the screen, but I don't care because I think it adds character to the phone and shows that it is truly being used.

    Naked looks like very pretty. But there is a risk so case is preferable.

    Well after today I would definitely go with a case lol. Got out the car this morning and the phone slipped out my hand and hit the ground pretty hard. Luckily I had a case on it. I had a Spigen Neo Hybrid Aluminum case on it. It hit the ground so hard it bent the case some lol.
