    The only time I handle my phone w/out a case is when I'm changing cases. When I first got it didn't touch/hold it until the sales rep had but my case & zagg glass on. I would but I just don't trust myself not to royaly mess my phone up.

    Do you think that the Apple leather case could protect the phones internal electronic components from minor bumps?
    I mean they must suffer the most from a bump, because of the shock. The scratches can be fixed if needed with a new housing.
    I think the Apple leather case does fine for minor drops.

    Well, its still interesting - why are those dots there in the first place? I mean on 3 different units?

    You really dont have to use a microscope to see it. I saw those dots without microscope the first time. And this afternoon, when i were sitting on the balcony, i saw the spot on my 2nd phone. And i wasnt using a microscope.

    See, you really need: 1. white phone 2. right light 3. right angle 4. a very good attention for details (defects). Most people just take a quick look and dont see anything. You really need to study your Iphone, in every angle, different lights, to see those defects. Now im very upset, i takes a lot of energy trying to find the right Apple genius again, going back to Apple Store, worrying if they are going to exchange it or not, will i get yet another defective unit, or will i get a good one?

    This is very stressfull, and i have had the case off and on today a couple of times, and i have tried my best to be careful, i have tried to get rid of those damn spots, is this also wearing on my phone? all this case removing? And why are the dots there? Why do i get defective units? I feel so bad right now i dont know if i should break down and cry, or just freak out in a real tantrum over this. Im really on the edge doing something stupid.

    Maybe you think this is funny. And thats okey. I can understand that. But for me its a real pain. I cant think or function doing anything else than pounding this over and over. I feel like im going crazy over all this stress. Really hate it. And i know that you say "oh, my phone dont have those spots" but did you really look? Or you just dont care?

    I so want a flawless phone, on the other hand, i regret i bought this, its making my life really bad, not only for me but for my family as well. I want it to be PERFECT thats all! And it SHOULD be perfect! Why? Because i bought those phones brand new and not from ebay or anything, i bought them from Apple store brand new with my own money. I saved a lot and spent a lot for this sh*t and its not fair! Its really driving me nuts!

    Im sorry if i bother you but i dont know where else to ASK! Apple store sure, but i have to see the same genius as last time, because he did help and understand me. The other guy i met didnt do nothing to help me.
    Holy Crap, I am diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder by a Psychologist.. And I dont think I have ever been that bad, to use a microscope!? I take my iphone 6 out of the apple leather case a lot and inspect with no problems.. You want to see damage, wait until you try some other cases! The felt and soft leather do a pretty good job protecting the phone when going on or off.. I dunno I have seen your posts on here a lot and I must say they are ummm.. Obsessive? It is just a phone, protect it as best ya can, believe me when I tell you, it hurts worse when you go to sell it and find your mint phone without black dots fetching only a few dollars more than the iphone with a cracked screen..

    Dang, I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't use a case. Every other phone I've bought, I've also sprung for a case, only to stop using the case after a couple weeks...so with the 6 I didn't even bother. The external design elements were a huge motivator for me to upgrade from the 5s, so I sure as hell wasn't going to cover it all up with a case. A few superficial scratches on the back aren't going to affect my enjoyment of this phone, and for catastrophic damage I have AC+.

    I love the design of the case, but it stresses the mess out of me to use it without a case
    I have a screen protector and case on it, and take it off once a while to either clean it and or admire the craftsmanship of the phone

    I purchased the iphone red leather case and while it doesn't add much bulk I always end up taking it off during the day because I love the feel of the phone without a case, especially the seamless ness if the glass wrapping to the side of the phone. Although without a case it did seem slippery at first I'm kinda training myself to be more conscious of the phone and I've been running without a case for about a week now, I'm getting used to it and actually prefer it.

    Occasionally I like to take it out of the Apple leather case and clean the dust that can accumulate where the case meets the screen. Then I admire how good looking the iPhone 6 is and browse Flipboard before putting it back in the safety of the case again.

    I will for work, simply because I put Velcro on the back and mount it on my work truck dash as a GPS and audio player.

    Otherwise, naked. My 5S hasn't even had a screen protector in months. I have a snap on case for work, that's it.

    I picked up my 6 tonight, same plan.

    I've been using mine without a case since day 1. I have no scratches, no dings and it's not bent.
