    I haven’t seen anyone start this thread yet, at least since launch day. I’ve had my new X since then, and while I’ve toyed with the idea of putting a case on it (even going to Best Buy to see what they had for sale), I really think the phone feels to good naked to put it in a case. Thoughts?

    Feels good naked but definitely using a case. Replacing the screen on this won’t be cheap. Really waiting on a Mophie case.

    Always bought the leather Apple OEM case for every iPhone since the 4 series.

    The only reason I’ll be using a case is due to the high glass replacement cost. If it weren’t for that I would definitely not be using a case.

    I used it without a case earlier while sitting on the couch and felt great. However, it's a fingerprint magnet even in silver, and I don't feel comfortable yet walking around with it out of a case. I know I've seen some broken from drops videos already but I was amazed to see EAP's YouTube video dropping an 8 and X side by side and he managed to not cause physical damage even at 3 head height drops to back/front/edge. His FaceID did stop working though (camera worked but it froze when trying to process).

    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.

    I wasn’t going to go with a case as I have never put one on any of my Plus sized phones, but this phone feels great in a case since it has a smaller form factor. I went with the Apple leather case and love how the phone feels in the hand with it.

    I wasn’t going to get one. My 7 plus and 8 plus didn’t have a case just the glass but I found this one and I like it.

    Yea I’m not that brave. I don’t care who sees this phone lol. It’s for me to enjoy and not show off. The price of replacing it is something I’m hoping to never experience so I’ve got a case on mine lol. The size of this phone also helped make the decision for me too. My 7 Plus was big and uncomfortable with a case. This is actually very comfortable to hold with the Spigen I got on Amazon.

    I’m absolutely babying my X when it comes in. Already have a otterbox defender case and glass screen protector that will go on the phone IMMEDIATELY after it comes out of the box.

    I’ll probably rock that till early January . Then I’ll be a more slim style case

    Never carry an all-glass phone naked. Never. That's just good advice in general.

    I'm always using some sort of durable case. Right now, I'm using an Otterbox Commuter.

    I have to agree. Now, when I'm sitting on the couch or at my desk, sure. Walking across the parking lot, hiking, off-roading, no way.

    You got one in mind? You are in Aus right? Post a link if you find a good one. I have had the nu glass and the crazy brand ones on a 8 which are cheap for X $8.95 for 2, but not sure if they are that good, the Spigen on ebay from Ultra store look good but $29.

    Is their a difference do you know in a dearer one?

    I found a Zagg InvisibleShield Glass+ on eBay. It’s pricey, but it should be worth it!
    Yes, I am in Sydney.

    The device feels great as-is, but we decided to use cases and screen protectors.

    My 7 plus has been mostly naked and I have really enjoyed it like that. With the X and all the glass I will have a case on it as soon as I take it out of the box. Using glass on a product that people use everyday and drop frequently isn't a wise choice.

    I didn’t use a case on my 4 and dropped it. A lot. Never broke anything on it. I’ve never broken a phone, glass back or not (except my work issued Xperia Z3 mini which has its back glass while laying flat on my nightstand. It’s glass was known for self cracking ).

    I currently have the dark aubergine leather Apple case on it but have already started to take it off multiple times an hour. Honestly the only reason it’s in a case is I love the colour. I expect to be caseless by Wednesday. Heh.

    I've got a Totallee ultra thin case on right now, but I'm sure it won't last long. The case is so thin it won't provide any drop protection anyway, just for scratches. May get a clear skin for the back for grip though.
