    Do you not feel the phone itself is slippery? That’s the only reason I use a case. I really would rather not...
    It is a little at first, but after a day or two you get used to it. Personally I found the older devices (6 & 7) with the matte finish to be more slippery. Now that the 8, X, and XS are all glass backs I find them to be much easier to grip.

    Definitely slippery. I dropped my phone onto a crockery plate last night because of how slippery it is. I can’t wait to get my case

    Although peel is the original..as mentioned prior totallee is made stronger. After a couple of removals, peel will lose shape. I used peel when I had the jet-black iPhone 7 that was prone to scratches. Both are great cases for minimal and just to avoid scratches. Felt like nothing was on it, but grippy.
    Caudabe is better than both. I’ve had cases from all 3 and not impressed with the Totallee or Peel. Caudabe just doesn’t have many colors right now. Hope they add more soon! I’ve never seen a case fit so precisely as the Caudabe I had for my 6S.

    I got the gold version what the best clear case to show off the gold ?
    I just got a completely clear soft tpu case from ESR today. It’s pretty minimal and I like it a lot. Makes the phone grippy and shows off the gold sides and back. These type of cases yellow over time but they’re inexpensive and so you can just get a new one. $12 on Amazon. The Spigen liquid silicone is nice too but no better than this ESR.

    A device this expensive it would be suicide not using a case in my opinion.
    Agreed.

    It’s got quite a nice grip to it. I’m liking it more and more each day

    Whats your thoughts on the midnight blue? I had the saddle brown on my 8+ and liked it but wanting a different color this time. I been eyeing that midnight blue. I know once it patina it’s probably going to look black
    I’ve always liked the midnight blue. Over time, it’ll become a very dark blue, close to black.

    Nice! I had that on my X, it was a little bulky for me. It seems that the traction case is slightly thinner

    I'm really liking the midnight blue, at least so far. It seems lighter than the old navy blue cases, so I'm not sure if a patina will make it black -- though we'll see how it looks as it ages. The midnight blue looks good with the gold XS.

    This is why I always use a case. Cheap protection for those aw snap moments. I was getting out of the car and it slipped out of my pocket. Yes I have apple care too but would rather not have to pay the deductible. Plus the nearest Apple store is 40 minutes from me.

    To each their own, but I do enjoy using my iPhones without a case at times. They just feel really nice in the hand, and the case takes something away from that experience. I haven't had the Max out naked yet, it got a screen protector and a case before I even powered it up for the first time, but I am sure it will happen soon. There are certain situations that I couldn't imagine going without a case, like at the gym for example.

    As far as cases go, I purchased an Apple blue horizon silicone and a Spigen liquid crystal case.

    I posted in another thread I was using the Product Red Silicone, but almost dropped my phone 2x this week, so while I am on the road for work, grabbed a Speck Presidio Grip.

    Not much, but you can notice the difference between the speck and the silicone. Right now cases in stores are really limited. 90% sold out at BestBuy and the AT&T store had mostly off brand glitter cases.

    I’ve had my Max since launch day and it’s been naked the entire time. I always end up buying 4-5 cases and hating every one of them. None last more than a few minutes before I take them off. I really love the feel of the phone, but it is definitely slippery. It’ll slide off any surface that has any degree of slope to it. If I set it on the arm of the couch it slides off in a matter of seconds. As slippery as it is I still can’t stand cases. I got AppleCare so at least if I do drop it and damage it I’m covered, but honestly I’m pretty careful with it.

    I just returned my Speck case to BB, it's the first time I ever returned a case. I usually like Speck, just not this time. Sticking with the Apple Leather / Apple Silicone.
