    I did for about 5 days while waiting for my black Apple silicone to arrive, using it now but don’t like it.
    You can return it and try the leather

    Yeah, i returned a Black Leather to JbHifi. The silicone i got from Apple and i rang to return and they said keep it and refunded me, had a chip out of it don't know how i havn't dropped it. I need something with a bit more protection than what Apple offer in my business and leisure activities.
    Have a UAG plasma ice coming Wednesday, was going to get the Monarch which i still have for 7/8 but its $33 more, see how it goes for a change.

    Tried to sell the Silicone on ebay for $20 off Apple price before i noticed the chip in it, no bites though.

    I would love to but wouldn’t dare. I change my phones every 3 months or so and the drop in resale value for a bump appearing is just too risky. I use an Apple Leather case at the moment but would be ‘upgrading’ to a Spigen Feather light case soon.

    I’m not. Can’t afford the breakage. Put a speck case and zagg screen protector on it right away after it was taken out of the box.

    Not taking any chances. Still getting used to the size coming from the 8 plus.

    I’d love to go caseless but ever since the Apple leather cases, I run those and love the feel. Plus the little raised edge allows putting the phone face down without fear of scratching.

    Caseless is too slippery. I run a dBrand skin and swap out cases as the circumstances warrant.

    I’ve always been an “if you got it, flaunt it” kind of iPhone user and have largely gone without a case. That said, I’ve been using a case the majority of the time I’ve had my iPhone X. It’s like carrying around a small panel of glass. I’m too paranoid I’m going to drop it.

    I accidentally dropped my iPhone X backside first yesterday to a wooden floor, and I’m glad I had the Apple leather case on it.

    Did you freeze up? Or did you grab at it right away?

    I’m in the iPhone Upgrade Program, no case for me since it includes AppleCare and I’ll be turning it in next year

    Always use a case.. It's just too expensive of a device to take a chance on dropping it... never use a screen protector though...

    I had a case and screen protector ordered and delivered before I even ordered the phone.

    if i had the silver it would be very tempting for me because it feels but nicer than the space gray i think with the painted bezel.

    But with my one year old daughter always grabbing at my phone and it taking spills there is no way i can go caseless.

    I think your only allowed 2-3 breaks on your phone with AppleCare, then I think your on your own.

    I’m not completely sure on this. I could be wrong. Haven’t really checked on this.

    I have AppleCare and I still put a case on it right away at Best Buy. I’m not taking any chances.

    I ordered a new Silver X as it was the color I really wanted and should have chosen when I did my 3am pre-order on the 27th, but I will still use a case and have been looking for cases that show off how nice the Silver looks.

    I've used mine without a case since day one. Fell of the nightstand yesterday and now there's a crack on the back. Least it's not that visible unless you look at it from an angle. Need to be more careful with it from now on. Who’s using their iPhone X without a case?-img_0932.jpg

    Only reason I got apple care this time around. I can use it naked, and if anything happens I can just pay the 99 fee to replace it if it ever breaks. Not a bad deal.

    I've started going caseless while at home. The likelihood of me dropping and shattering my device at home is very, very, very low considering its either falling between couch cushions or on the carpet. But I NEVER leave the house without my X being in a case. Too paranoid to risk that.
