I dont care what side of this bending fiasco you're on, these phones are more fragile than ever before. I would never intentionally put my phone through its paces, but **** happens! What if the thing is in my pocket and I trip and fall on to it, for example? Id rather be safe than sorry and put a solid hard case on it in hopes that it helps the phones rigidity. What do you have? Id like something somewhat thin so it doesnt add too much bulk. Ideally a thin titanium case would be badass - but I doubt something like that is on the market yet.
