Whats people's thoughts on this?

I know some have said they have their S7/S7 edge naked. Or do you not risk it?

Always prefer the Nilkinn 'Nature' cases. They offer protection from scratches (not drops) but are so thin and really allow the device to shine. Best of 'naked' and 'case' IMHO.

I'm firmly in the no case camp. No screen protector either.

S7 edge.

I use this lovely Etsy pouch if I need extra protection (like a gym bag or something):

Holster case for me mostly since I don't like putting phones in my pocket. Not into screen protectors unless it is installed before I opened the box. Luckily, four of my five phones had it already and the screens are flawless. Hate the glass back of the GN7, but oh well. That seems the only thing I dislike from it.

If it gets too slippery for me to grip or the fingerprints bother me too much, then I will get Marques Brownlee's...

I see Lanh Nguyen from Android Authority use a black carbon fiber skin for his S7 edge. Only $10 for it. Easy fix. Doesn't seem to get in the way of the side edges.

I LOVED trigger happy TV when it was on, the huge phone bits never ever got old.

As for a case, HELL NO. I go naked or don't go at all. Now I may go with a Skinomi matte skin on the back and sides, haven;'t decided yet. But my Note 5 has zero blemishes and gets carried around completely naked. I just can't deal with the increase in size/thickness with any kind of case, makes me feel I'm uglifying this beautiful svelte $900 phone with some cheap plastic. But I know you deal with sand a lot so I can't blame you.
