    Anybody just use a sleeve to put it in and out of? I'm tempted to try this route out. Love the feel of the phone without a case and can't get on with certain cases

    This has been discussed 800,000 times. And yes, there is at least one other person on this forum that does not use a case.

    Try a search for 'naked'. I promise you it's SFW here. ;)

    I think this would be a great spot for your thread. o_O

    All of my iPhones go in a very thin case right out of the box. I could never keep my phone without some type of protection as I sell them in like new condition after the newer phones are released.

    There is no grip on the phone and it's way too slippery to use without a case. The fact that it is so thin doesn't help either. I actually see quite a few people with a 6/6S/6Plus/6S Plus without a case and I just cringe. There is no way I would use one without a case.

    That's the same reason that's seemed to be used for a lot of different iPhones. It may even be true. But I don't believe that if Apple ever makes an iPhone that does not get damaged when you drop it, that those who use cases won't come up with another reason to continue using them.

    Cases are polarizing issues around here.

    I haven't used a case since the bumper on my 4s. Cases aren't for me as id rather enjoy the design that millions of dollars went into making rather than one that a case company crapped out in an afternoon. To each their own, but I haven't broken an iPhone ever so I'll continue going caseless

    My iPhone 6 is the first ever phone I had to use case.

    I dont like cases but iPhone 6 just too slippery and that camera just annoying without a case.

    If Apple ever managed to make a phone that didn't get broken or damaged when dropped or scratched when placed on a hard surface then I certainly would not be using a case. I don't like using a case but do so out of necessity. For those out there who refuse to use a case because they believe the phone should be used without one for what ever reason then more power to them.

    I certainly won't be sympathising with them when they do eventually drop their phone or get it scratched. I use a clear minimalist case which takes away as little as possible from the phone. I certainly wouldn't be using the leather and silicone cases that a lot of people use that hide the back and in some cases the front of the phone.

    My wife has a Moshi iGlaze Lux case. Basically, just an aluminum frame around her phone.

    I don't use cases, but I've dropped my iPhone 5 a few times (a few scratches and dings, but the screen is fine) and for the first time ever I cracked my iPhone 6+ screen when I dropped it the first and only time.

    I'm on the 6s+ now. The irony is that my wife has only dropped an iPhone once and that only happened a few months after her iPhone 5 was upgraded to a 6. Only one little ding in the corner on her 5.

    I'll still be going caseless.

    I went caseless with my iPhone 5 for 3 years. Dropped it a couple times but nothing major.

    With my 6S I was going to rock it naked but with the apple leather case it just feels complete.

    I found with the design of the 5 a lot of cases added way too much bulk.

    There are some 0,35mm covers that feel like you don't have nothing but provide a minimal protection, Google for 0.35mm iPhone cover ;)

    Way too paranoid for that. My phone has a case with rubber (for shock) and stuff.

    What's your favorite clear case? Is it one that doesn't yellow?
