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

My thoughts exactly.

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 can’t knock you one bit but my risk threshold isn’t nearly that high lol

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.

Using a $1000 glass phone without protection is just telling the world you have more money than sense!

All of my iPhones have been $1100 or up when I buy them outright. Thanks Canada. Hasn’t stopped me before won’t stop me now. Lol

I purchased a black leather wallet case (GASP!....I know, right?)....for my iPhone X. I had the case on it for maybe 10 minutes, before taking it off and putting the case away. I just can’t do it (Laughing), but I did try.

That's because it's the wallet case and it's a PITA. Get the regular leather ones and you'll like them better.

Not gonna happen.........It wouldn’t have mattered what case I bought, I still would have taken my iPhone out of it. I just prefer my iPhone to be caseless. That’s all.

I hear you. I have an unnatural love for the colour of the aubergine leather case...and the bottom corners of it are all marked up from me popping the phone out of it (the leather slips and my nails rake the leather).

I just can’t keep the case on it.

(Laughing)....Nah!...I doubt I’ll damage my iPhone X, but if I happen to do so, I’ll get it replaced or switch to my iPhone 8.

I’m debating this fact the phone is surprisingly grippy with no case
