I now use no case/screen protector and am covered in case of accidental damage or if physical wear and tear (which is extremely minimal for my release day white iPhone 5) gets too bad. I decided the money spent for a case/screen protector wasn't worth it. It also makes the phone bigger/bulkier, and heavier. I haven't had to use it yet.
You've got a point there, the Apple Care is totally worth it. Also, I agree with you, cases are really expensive, and I don't usually like the look of the iPhone with almost none of them, it looks gorgeous for itself. But even having the Apple Care, I will still buy an screen protector, because it is just a few euros/dollars and for me, it makes me feel safe.
