    Pelican case, no screen protector. I quite wasting money on screen protectors years ago.
    I always use one personally to keep resale value high!

    I think the best case is the Apple leather case as far as looks. But it really doesn't offer crash and burn protection. Speck cases are nice.
    Depends!

    I've dropped my phone countless times in the leather and silicone cases without issue. Tile floor, wood floor, garage floor, etc. Usually from waist high. It's no Otterbox but it does well

    Same here. My Apple leather case has taken a beating but my phone remains in perfect condition.
    I wish I had the guts to go caseless. I'm too darn clumsy!

    I use an Apple midnight blue silicon case for grip. But also use a carry bag into which I put the iPhone. The bag has a pouch for the charger plug and cable, so never without the important bits!

    Same here. Glass screen protector before it leaves the store, no matter what.

    I've seen too many co-workers with cracked iPhone 6/s screens, most of which were dropped due to the phone being too 'slippery'. If handling the phone wasn't like carrying a bar of soap, I'd consider going caseless. Then again, I like having a screen free of cracks and shatters due to me wanting it to look 'pretty'.

    I looked at that case last week but couldn't tell how well it fit by the pictures on their site. If they would have used pictures similar to those that you uploaded, I would have bought one. It looks nice!

    Absolutely!

    I replace screens and fix phones on the side for family and friends all the time. I actually enjoy it. They insist on going caseless and are very confident in their handling, not I lol.

    When going caseless, I can take a cracked screen here and there but there is no way I can take a scratched, dented or dinged up housing! It's just my ocd.

    If I plan on selling the device, I use a case and screen protector. If I plan on keeping it, no case and no screen protector. There's something about a naked iPhone that feels liberating. I've also never broken a phone so I think it just comes down to your own personal preferences.

    Case or no case is a user choice.

    What you DON'T get to do (even though half the universe seems to), is use a case and then criticise anything to do with the phone's design or have opinions about "Design" in general.

    If you're putting the thing in a rubber ring or some cheesy ruggedized case, you're essentially saying that you don't care about form factor, looks, or the actual design of the phone.

    The iPhone 6 is indeed (a bit) slippery. The iPhone 6s is night and day different and not slippery at all.

    The real issue here though is that people are clumsy, not that the iPhone design is "slippery."

    I usually use a thin case like the Air Skin but bought one of the Hemp wraps from SlickWraps on 420 and it has the best grip of any skin I have tried.

    Fits very well also. No drop protection but provides the additional grip I wanted without the bulk.

    I understand people are clumsy and the reason for using a case, but I don't understand why anyone would use a "glass protector" of any kind on the front. None of them are even close to the hardness, scratch resistance, and protection offered by the iPhone front glass itself. Not even close. In most cases it's plain old window glass, or soft plastic. The plastic ones can even *increase* the likelihood of scratching the glass underneath and ALL of them decrease the sensitivity of the touch screen to some degree.

    Any impact strong enough to break the "protector" will also surely shatter the iPhone glass as well, especially now that the iPhone front glass is curved and the edge (which is the part that is most prone to impacts) has to be naked anyway. What's the logic behind, "I'm going to put this big ole piece of cheap window glass on the front of my phone." ???

    When you re-sell this thing, you will have to slather it with solvents to get all that mess off, and the person buying it is going to think it's "pristine" when in fact it will be full of gasoline or whatever was used to get off the glue that makes it stick. That's not very nice.

    I've always used an Otter Box Defender for my phones (or a similar type case when none available) for work and something slimmer for the rest of the day. I used to have one of those Invisible Shield protectors on my iPhone 4/s and it kept them in great condition. The metallic backs on my 5s and 6 feel like they scratch easily so I prefer to have covered. I have gone without a case for a couple of hours ever now and then, but I always come back to having a case. I also use the tempered glass protectors on some, it keeps them looking nice and free of those hairline scratches you get over time.

    I just took my 6S out of its case to test. Gonna have to disagree with you, it's quite slippery.

    I know this has been discussed over and over probably; but I'm going back and fourth. I know many swear by having a case on their phones, and for good reason. However, there are many that prefer not to rock a case. How many go naked? How many prefer a case? If nothing else, I must have a glass screen protector. With the new materials that's being used, is it completely necessary to have a case?
    Before I prefer no case because iPhone 6 is too huge and I have a small hand lel. But when I accidentally dropped my precious iPhone and saw some dents, I decided to get one. And I prefer you must have a glass screen protector rather than plastic screen protector.

    i prefer pretty much everything not in a case, my iphone is no exception. the design looks great and the materials feel good in the hand.

    that said, you have to know yourself, your surroundings, and evaluate the risk involved, because i think one of the main reasons to use one is protection...whether it be scratches, drops, or both. unless of course you are in a position to just buy a new device whenever you want, which is cool too. or, if you want a case for a specific look or features (ex. wallet case), also cool.

    when i'm lounging at the house i don't use a case. also, when i'm stationed at my desk for long periods at the office i remove the case. but when i'm on the run or traveling for work i bounce between the Apple silicon and leather cases. they fit perfect and feel great.

    for the beach or the mountains or any sort of physical activity, i have a few more protective options such as Otterbox and Incipio dual layer models.i'll also throw on a screen protector on a case-by-case basis, but then peel it off when i resume my normal daily routine. i buy the cheap ones from $5 Below.

    some folks would probably find all that changing cases and peeling protectors to be too much, but it works for me...and i've never destroyed a phone, ever...so i must be doing something right.

    cheers.

    I always have a case and never have a screen protector. I try not to carry change or keys in my pocket with my phone. Since my iPhone 5 I haven't used the screen protector and phone has been fine. I do use the Speck Candy Shell for all of my phones, they seem to offer the best combination of protection and thinness.

    This is not true whatsoever. Many cases are designed to accent or complement a phone's basic design and design language, even the huge max-protection otter boxes. I guarantee that you would be able to tell the difference between an iphone and an android in equivalent cases made by the same case manufacturer. The home button (including the metal ring), the shape of the corners, the location of the physical buttons are all aspects of design. There is more to design than the external material and color.

    So, even if I protect my iPhone in a case, I still reserve the right to critique Apple's design choices.

    I have a iphone 6. I was positive that i'd go without a case. But the first day i was sitting on the couch with it i dropped it twice. Luckily it fell all of 4 inches onto a soft couch so no problem. But it's just way too thin. My hands are to big to hold it by the edges with any security. It's also quite smooth so it doesn't grip that well. Thus i immediately ordered a case on amazon and i haven't looked back. I prefer the bulk. It's barely added and it's much easier to handle. And because of it I don't think i've ever dropped it since. But that's my story. Oh and honestly, they are just too expensive for me to risk breaking it.

    No case. Never again with a case. I didn't find the 6 Plus slippery and I definitely don't find the 6S Plus slippery.

    A phone is a tool. It's meant to use. If it gets scratches, oh well. I bought Apple Care for if the screen breaks but I've never, not once, had a broken screen.

    I've broken my phone screen about 3x (different phones) it always happens the week I decide to go caseless. I've vowed to never go without a case again. However, once in a while at home I like to take it out to enjoy the design. The phone is quite slippery.
