I always use a case and screen protectors on all of my phones they have saved me every time I drop my devices.

I will admit I am using a leather case this year with a screen protector. Since I have apple care going to live a little and use a case I like not one for heavy duty protection. I usually use otter box commuter series cases.

I picked “Yes but I will removing it”.

As each of my past iPhone, I started with Apple case (this time leather midnight, usually silicone red product) ending caseless after some time.

I have kept every iPhone I have had over the years in a case with a screen protector because I like my phone to be in good shape when I get ready to trade it off and get a new phone so they can’t say they can’t take it because it is damaged

Depends! I have AC+ and I’ve hairline cracked one screen in 15 years, so I don’t really need one per se.

There are times when it’s convenient to have some extra/non-metal grip, so I usually have an Apple leather case on.

But when summer comes, I want people to see that Sierra Blue 😎

I would prefer not to, but squared off edges are so uncomfortable to hold imo. A case makes it a bit more bearable.
I think that's subjective. Round corners make the phone harder to hold for me - forcing me to grip harder, which makes it more tiring and uncomfortable to hold.

Which what…?

Means that those who don't use cases are not taking care of their things?

I have a 6s+ in very good condition that has never seen a case.

My 11PM has never seen a case. Aside from the fact that it's only a year old, it's in very good condition.
Why take it personally?
Him or her may have an entirely different set of activities, work conditions, life style completely different from yours, which may require a case to prevent damage.

Because it seems to be a personal opinion presented as a fact, which in turn allows for the passing of judgment upon others.

I kind of take that personally.
