    No. Nobody on the planet is doing this.




    Yes, I am, but I've been really careful with it so I have no markings yet. I get the feeling the gold will wear off like the black slate did last year. We'll see.

    Horrible. Scratches very easy, dents even easier.

    I don't have a case on mine, what's the point of getting gold and then covering it up?

    You need to decide based on your preferences. Its a coating. It will wear. If that bothers you then get a case.

    Try this Barely There by Case-Mate in Clear for full visibility of your Precious. ;)

    I have used the black version on my iPhone 5 since its release. Excellent product. :)

    No case but I use Spigen ultra clear mix protectors front and back and I bought square trade protection :)

    A phone this good looking should not be covered up :D

    Gold is for ladies to show off, I saw an elderly lady with lots of gold jewelry and flashing her gold iPhone in Starbucks.

    From an aesthetic point of view, naked is the best choice, since iPhone 5/5s are really beautiful.
    But my problem aren't scratches or small dents.
    What about a drop ? You can damage it quite seriously ....

    I use a cover, a flap cove to be honest, just for this reason

    I've never used a case on my phone and I've had every single iPhone since the original - always a screen protector. Never saw the point since the design was the biggest selling point to me. With that being said, since the 5 and now the 5s, I have been putting a "clear" protector of sorts (Spigen) on the back - that's the furthest I'll go.
