iPhone 3GS x2 - Otterbox Defenders
iPhone 5 - Otterbox Defender
iPad 4 - Apple Smart Case
iPad Mini - Apple Smart Cover

Reason for covering; due to the amount of money I spend on these items and resale value.

Not for me.
I have my iPhone 5 with only a skin and screen protector
The iPad (3) had a cheap-o $5 case but it's looking pretty beat so I just took it out so it's naked with just a screen protector
My wife uses a case on her phone though.

Worth noting that I have AC+ for both my phone and the iPad.

4S - Apple Bumper
iPad Mini - lioncase Folio Shield

Without the cases, my devices feel... slippery I guess is the right word. Like if I'm not careful, they'll slip out of my hands. The cases add just enough girth that they don't feel slippery and I can hold them without fear.

Also, the lioncase has a Smart Cover feature that works great.

I thought that at first but it was just the effect of having something in a case, then not having it in a case. You get very used to it NOT being in a case very quickly and then it's hard to go back.

Get a skin if you think it's slippery. It makes it more rubbery (feels like a prophylactic).

I used to always think people who carried their $650-$850 devices around w/o a case were crazy. now I'm one of them.

If I do use a case on my iPhone 4, it's the Mophie juice pack air. Otherwise I rock it without a case.

Why are you polling others? It's a matter of preference. You have to do what works for you.

A lot of "build quality" isn't visually apparent to begin with. Are you intending to say "aesthetics" (which a case would hide)?

You might find that to be the case but you really can't speak for others. Again, it's a matter of preference which varies from person to person and is evidenced by the various options people select.

iPhone 4S -no screen protector, but I do have this case:
http://www.amazon.com/Bling-Crystal-.../dp/B006MOYYFU
I'm sure there is hardly any protecting value to it, but its really cute

iPad 4 - the smartcover from apple. No screen protector either.

On my iphone 5 I have a screen protector. I do have a gear 4 tread case. But I only have my case on when I am outside my house.

OtterBox Defender on my 5, looking to switch up to a smaller case though. When I had my 4 I always went naked, felt great.

As of today all I'm using is a skin . Occasionally I'll put my battery case on but I try not to do that often.

Me too! Almost.
iPhone 5 (black) - Otterbox Commuter
iPad Mini (white) - Smart Cover

I broke my last naked iPhone on the concrete, so this time I made sure to get an Otterbox for it.

I have a semi-clear black case that covers the back of my iPhone. Mainly so that I don't have to worry about it getting scratches when I lay it on a flat surface. It doesn't really provide any drop protection but I'm not worried about dropping it.
