    Anyone who uses their 6 naked and lays the phone on a table flat on its back...has this caused any dents under normal use? It is the ony reason why I use a case. I've always gone naked prior to the 6.

    I'm not worried about the lens scratching. I mean the outer ring that is made of aluminum and metal, does it get dented because if you lay the phone down, it will constantly push weight onto one corner of the ring.

    Unless you're slamming the phone down on a hard surface, I think you'll be fine. The weight of the phone pushing down on that one spot is far too little to do anything unless you're stacking books on top of your phone. Even then, as I said, you'd probably need to forcefully and intentionally slam the phone down on the surface to damage the ring. At which point, you'd probably bend the phone and break the screen.

    Agreed. I don't think you have anything to worry about OP.

    So, does most people lay there phone down on the back or the front? I am assuming back to protect the front screen.

    Do any of you go to work naked? If not... Then neither should your phone. Just sayin... Always use a case!

    Nope, I set mine down with the screen facing up on the 6+. I was concerned at first but after a few times, I'm not so worried now. I do try to set it on something soft. If a magazine or coaster is around, I'll try to set it on that rather than on exposed granite.

    I have two scratches and Knicks around the bezel. I never dropped my phone just normal wear and tear but it doesn't bother me because I never look at the back of my phone.

    YOR was supposed to be your. Sometimes autocorrect fails me.

    I was saying that in pretty sure the comparison to clothing yourself to clothing your phone was sarcasm on the poster's part.
