    Case and screen protection for me. Butter fingers + a habit of putting my phone in the same pocket as my keys makes me take precautions. For now I have an Anker Karapax Breeze case and Spigen screen protector. I’m not thrilled with either. The case doesn’t look like it will protect from drops and the screen protector has a bit of a rainbow effect around the edges. I’ll be looking for better later but these will do for now.

    I wanted to go naked, but being a Plus user I’m not used to the size yet and I was afraid I’d have a bar of soap incident. So case...for now.

    Definitely a case as my line of work it would make it a month before I would be replacing the front or back glass.

    Yup- I’m using it caseless around the house but will have a case on it for work tomorrow just until I fully acclimate.

    Plus, my Ringke Fusion scratched my back glass, there’s a nice circular scratch/gouge on the back of the glass that matches up to a mark on the case as well - so since it now has a small blemish, I’m better about embracing my usual desire to not use a case. Thankfully it only shows at a certain angle (glad I chose silver).

    I wanted to go caseless. After they announced the repair cost, I changed my mine. Now mine is wearing white silicone case. Look ok though.

    I’ve always had a case on mine. Tried once going case less on the 6s plus. Dropped in the room and it bounced off the wood book shelf and hit the carpet floor. Ran out right away and got a case.

    Two weeks later dropped it in the backyard on the sidewalk, WHEW. Nothing wrong with it.

    Better to get s case so your not sorry later.

    I’ve dropped my phones multiple times and have never broken a screen. My 7 Plus was caseless all year and hit the floor at least 5 times.

    I have AppleCare so if something happens I’m good.

    I use it naked most of the time. I like the way the back looks so I won’t put a skin on it like I did with my s8. Majority of my drops occur when entering or leaving a car so I use a case when I go out.

    I have an OtterBox defender on my 8+ and yesterday it fell out of my pocket doing about 20 mph on my bike and I watched it tumble down the street.. after my heart started again, I picked it up assuming the worst and was so happy not to see a scratch on it... I love my Otterbox!!!!

    I'm using the Apple Leather thin case. I really like the feel of it. i have always used the Spigen Ultra thin cases and bought 1 for the new phone but the Apple Leather case is nice.

    those are as close to caseless as you can get, just about. decent protection and minimal size added. I love the Apple cases

    Not a chance I’d use a glass backed device like the X with no case and screen protector

    Pretty much!

    "I have AppleCare for that" but you still have to make the time to take care of it if you break it, and for me the time it takes to do all that, even if the cost is minimal, is worth more to me.

    Yes indeed! Don’t know how familiar folks are with Downtown Charleston, SC but the  store is on king street in the middle of a high college kid traffic area at College of Charleston. Get stuck with an obscure Genius Bar appt and that can be soooo aggravating. Lol

    Didn’t use a case or protector on my glass front and back iPhone 4 and it never broke nor did I have AppleCare on it.

    Think I’m good.

    I think I dropped my 6s 2 or 3 times in the 2 years and was glad to have the Apple case on it. Never had to use AppleCare but was happy to have it just in case.

    I have never nor will I ever place a case on an iPhone. This thing is $1100 of steel and glass and high end tech. All will marvel at its shiny beauty.
    Hahaha, me too! I’ve got AppleCare just in case, but it looks and feels insanely nice without a case.
