    Ive been thinking about whether or not i should use a case on my 4S when it comes in Friday. Ive been reading the other threads but none of the cases people posted have convinced me. Anyone have good suggestions on a case or skin...or should i not use a case at all? Input from people who went naked on the 4 would be great too

    A case for such a pretty phone seems like a travesty...

    But dropping it onto concrete would be worse...

    Full-body cases seem kind of pointless. I've had my 4 for over a year and the glass is still not scratched; however, it is cracked from the one time I dropped it.

    That's why I'm thinking of getting a black bumper for my white 4s. It preserves the aesthetics(unlike a full body case), while at the same time it gives some peace of mind by protecting against nasty drops.

    thats another reason. i would definitely stay as far away from a bumper as possible!

    yeah I can't quite decide on whether or not I would like to cover it or not. I was using the cheap clear plastic case on my black i4 from the case program. I didn't like the way it looked, but I literally managed to drop it once on every corner in the 13 and a half months I owned it. Without that case losing its own chunks, I woulda lost chunks of phone.

    actually am VERY surprised at how a few of my friends have their iphone 4's in mint condition having it naked since day one. besides minor scratches on the antenna, my white iphone 4 has no sratches at all on the front or back of it

    My vote is just staying naked. Plus i use a universal remote device for it and docking it a lot. having a case you dont know if whatever you plug into your 30 pin device will fit or not

    thanks for the input guys. I'm kinda leaning on going case less with a front and back protector for scratches. Would you say the power support film is the way to go?

    I would rather carry around a small infant one-handed than carry an iPhone without a case.

    I've had a bumper from day 1, matte screen protector and a carbon fiber skin for the back. Needless to say the phone is in mint condition.

    I'm more concerned about the camera lens getting scratches and degrading the picture quality.

    if i had a white iphone, i'd definitely want to cover it up with a case.

    but since i'm a guy and ordered a black one, no need for a case.

    Im concerned about that as well...i would be hesitant to lay the phone on its back for that reason.

    I'm going naked with my iPhone 4S. I just can't stand cases making an object bulkier than it has to be. Plus it is a nice looking phone.

    Get the white Graft Concepts case. It's beautiful. You can go with it as a "bumper" style or with the back plate for protection like in the pic below.

    Anyone used a bumper on their iPhone 4? Reviews?
    I used a case all year with my iPhone 4 and it scratched up the metal band, screen and back were perfect though.
    so I'm thinking that I just want a bumper...

    hmmm

    I would like to go RAW, but you know the probable consequences of going RAW, correct?

    Bumpers are pretty good but they don't protect the back much.

    The white ones turn yellow or gray in about 2 weeks. Yuck.

    Bumpers also protect it from falls though. As long as it falls on something flat.
