    I find myself constantly removing my protective case to admire my iPhone naked.

    This is especially true with my newly acquired iPhone6 but even with my iPhone5 I would probably take it out of its case once a week or so and enjoy using it in all its beauty.

    Anyone else do this?

    Yes, the phone is beautiful caseless. But it gets dinged up and scratched without one. :(

    Maybe twice the first day I own it. Then I only remove it to clean the crud out periodically.

    Only in very soft and safe places, right guys?

    I do. Did it with the 5 once in while. But glad I had it on when I dropped it on the street or sidewalk about 5 times in the 2 years I used it. The case I use for the 6 is soft and slim and very easy to take off which I do a lot when I'm home.

    I guess it would be more beneficial in the long run to admire naked things that are actually living organisms.

    I never use any iPhone without a case. We have this thing on Earth called gravity. This can and usually wreaks havoc on our beloved iPhones.

    Applecare doesn't protect your phone from dents, scratches, or scuffs.

    Why do so many people think Applecare serves the same purpose as a case?

    I do when I'm trying to show someone the phone, the iphone is an impressive piece of art, and it's hard to show that to someone with a clunky case on.

    This time around I'm thinking about getting a hard carved rosewood bumper (the same wood used in violins and rather high up on the hardness scale) I've dropped my phone a few times in the year I've had it so I'm still unsure.

    Make sure you get a case for the bumper too.

    No. The only time I take the case off is to clean it or the phone! I do admire the designs when I'm at the Apple Store though.

    No, I admire my iPhone 6+ so much that I don't even use a case at all. :cool:

    Did the same with my iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, no problems. I'm extremely careful with my electronics.

    I do it once every few weeks. Especially with the 4. Less so with the 5 and much less so with the 3G but I still did it from time to time.

    The 4 is definitely my favorite design.

    This is hilarious. There is a thread like this every year. I suppose it's a testament to Jony Ive's team.

    My own personal solution is to get a thin clear case that lets the iPhone show through and still feels naked. I'm surprised cases like the Caudabe Veil don't come up more often in these discussions given how popular it is.

    My number one weapon to combat bulge and unsightly-ness on my beautiful iPhone.

    I had my iPhone 5 in an Otterbox Defender for a long time. I would take it out maybe once every two weeks on average to clean the dust out. What happened? The rubber now fits like dog **** from being stretched just that little bit every time.

    For other types of cases that snap onto/over the phone in a way that 'rubs' it, I think it'll cause scuffs eventually. Maybe not a big deal though.

    I've got THIS case on my iPhone 6 now and it's one that sort of 'rubs' snapping on, but I like it for the most part so far. I probably won't take it off as much because it fits really well and I don't see much dust getting in like the OtterBox.
