    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.
    Wow! Do you have tile or hardwood in your bedroom or something? I pulled mine off my desk onto the carpet the first day when my desk chair caught the cable after I had plugged it in to restore my 7+'s backup to it and I nearly had a heart attack cause I think it also bounced off my PC tower which is heavy duty steel and was right under it under my desk but no issues at all with the phone after.

    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.
    I do once in a while but I have to be really careful because most of my downstairs is all tile floors. Even the living room with the large rug over it there's no real cushion from that.

    I haven't gone caseless since my LG V10 battle tank a few years ago. I grabbed the X on a whim last night so I was not prepared. I got a clear bumper case at the (shudder!) carrier store when I got the phone... ouch. Just plain ouch lol. Currently scouring Amazon for a decent wallet style flip case.

    I’m caseless 99% of the time, but I found a case by ESR that is extremely low profile but also protective and - most importantly- matches the phone. I’m really happy with it so far.

    I've been really tempted to do so, I even have AppleCare, but still I have a case on at all times. Maybe after a few months I may brave it and go caseless, the phone is just too beautiful to hide behind a case. Some have recommended those really thin cases like Peel, but I just use the Apple silicone cases, which I love.

    I am! No way can I keep a case on this. I have a couple for rare occasions but it’s way too beautiful so I bought these instead and love them. Can barely tell they’re there.

    I love Apple cases too.
    Simple, fits perfectly and looks great.

    I’ve been using mine without any protection or babying it and so far I think it have been aged pretty well.

    P.S. I am using it caseless since I have purchased Apple Care+

    I’m also thinking that the scratches add some character to my phone, also after the first scratch I totally stopped to worry about it being damaged. So I’m kind of happy on how the phone looks today

    The phone feels so good without a case, that it’s almost a crime to use it with a plastic cover.

    Also, I’m pretty sure that after the first repair from Apple Care (I haven’t dropped the phone yet 🤞🏽), i will use it with a case #SorryNotSorry so I’m trying to enjoy my time with the caseless phone.

    It does add character to the phone and it shows that you’ve enjoyed the device the way it’s meant to be.

    What about resale value ?
    I’m selling all of my iPhone at a decent price mostly because they absolutely pristine.

    It’s easy and that’s the way I’ve sold my older iPhones, i offer the buyer to pay a replacement using Apple Care+ (or if the buyer don’t want to, they use the phone in the current condition) so technically I’m selling a new device with still one repair left and extended warranty

    It’ll affect the resale value, it’s just that I keep my devices and don’t resell them.

    Understood. I’m always selling my iPhone to partially fund the new one.

    Sure, but you’ll always loose money, I prefer to enjoy the device and loose a little bit more money than using a case/screen protector

    Ditto I am always changing phones Android and IOS. So cases make sure that they are immaculate during the sale.

    This always puzzles me: how can someone keep switching between iOS and Android ?
    I invested quite a lot of money in Apple ecosystem (apps, services, hardware) it’s not like I’m going to switch easily every year or two.
