Using the iPhone 6 without any case/cover?

I've read the article iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus review: Six months later recently... and I noticed Allyson Kazmucha's comment;

"I seldom uses cases. If I do they're super thin ones. That being said, neither my iPhone 6 or 6 Plus show any signs of wear. I'm careful with them but I don't hold them with kid gloves either. And don't get me started on bendgate. Yes metal bends when you try hard enough. Go away."

- As an iPhone 6 user myself, I'm very cautious about scratches and stuff... therefore I always use a case for protection.
However, I would love to be able to use my iPhone 6 without a case, as I have been doing at the time when I had a 4S, about 4 years ago.
But, of course I don't want to have my iPhone 6 all scratched up!!
I always use my electronics with a lot of care, I store my phone in the front pocket of my trousers (of course without any carkeys), and have never dropped my iPhone ever since I had an 4S, about 4 years ago.

So other than putting the phone on its back on the table, I'm very careful.
-----------

Can anyone confirm that it's safe for me to start using my iPhone 6 without a case or any other cover??

Been using my 6 without a cover for a few weeks now. Still looking brand new.

If you're using a case just to protect the phone from scuffs and such that it could easily get, then you may as well take the case off. The phone doesn't easily scuff or scratch.

However if you're using it because the phone is slippery without one, keep the case on. I've used iPhones as they are since the 3GS and the 6 and 6 Plus have caused me to use a leather case way more than I ever want to use them due to the fact that they're just more slippery in my hand than previous generations.

Yes quite possible. Have been using mine for months, my brother never dropped his phone, and most of my friends. It's all about discipline, you have to cultivate the habit then get used to it. In my own case,i have a tempered glass on my phone and I ALWAYS put it face down.

The only reason my 6+ scuffed without a case is because it fell off my lap out of my car and onto rocks. Other than that, I have dropped it a few times without a case and have seen no issues with it.

Love going naked every time I buy a case I can't stand to use it and then I get rid of it haha. For example I bought a BookBook used it for a month and then took it off haha.

I have tried to go caseless but it is just too slippery. I have a folio case I got from a kiosk after getting the phone, but it's cheapness is showing and it's coming apart already so I'll be getting a new one.

If you read up on it though, these things are engineered to not need a case. It already comes with a protective shell ;)

Like someone above said, if you're using a case to avoid scuffs, you might as well not use it. It's designed to withstand daily wear and use. I just wish it was more grippy, as it is a delight to hold and use on its own. It's a shame to keep it in a case all the time.

I bought a leather sleeve and use it when I carry my iPhone around, and I take it out when I want to use it. It also helps keeping some of the fingerprints off the screen.

Been using the otterbox commuter. VZW now sells all the parts so you can mix and match.

The only thing I don't like about the commuter case is the exposed logo. The one on my 5s got scratched. So I'm using the Symmetry now.

Gotcha, doesn't bother me if the back of the phone gets scratched. Builds character lol.

I work in construction so a case is a must. All set damaging an expensive phone. I have a Lifeproof case and even then I keep that inside a plastic ziploc freezer bag to keep the case from getting messed up. Overprotective maybe, but work can be rough. I'm still wondering if case does it's full job. I've noticed spots under the screen protector that make it look like something got inside, but I don't think so.

I've used every iPhone including the 6 without a case. I've never seen any sense in buying a well designed, thin phone and then bulking it up. I carry my iPhone is a pocket with no ther objects that can damage it (e.g. Keys, coins, etc) and it looks like new. I also always sell my used iPhones nd get good money for them when I upgrade annually. Now I am very careful with my phone.
A heavy duty case like an Otterbox makes good sense for those who work in harsh environments or just are not careful with their phones. I use a Kenu Highline which combines a shell case and tether when I ski or hike. I also use a waterproof case when I have the opportunity to get out on a boat.

I've gone most of the life of the 6 and 6+ with no case. I use a screen protector on front and back and that's more than enough for me. I can't stand the dust that collects from the use of cases over time.
