    I prefer to use my phone naked but I'm afraid the screen and camera lens might scratch.

    Yes, both. A Thule case and an anti-reflex matte screen protector.

    Yes - both a glass screen protector and an Otterbox Commuter. I drop stuff. :)

    I didn't know Thule made cases. When you use it, do you have to carry your iPhone on top of your car? ;)

    I always use a case, but no longer use a screen protector. I'm careful and don't put my phone in the same pocket as keys and other metal objects and don't have trouble with the screen scratching. I just prefer the feel and sensitivity of the screen without a protector.

    But the pink is orange on mine.
    Black is tough plastic with fold out stand and coloured part is a rubber/silicone case.
    Also glass front screen cover fitted too.

    Yup.

    Then you'll have to sort out which is the bigger priority for you.

    iPhone is not damage resistant enough IMO. Most phones aren't either. I use both case and screen protector.

    Thin TPU case from Diztronic to give excellent grip and prevent scratches/dents to the aluminum.

    Plastic screen protector to take hits from small sand particles. Also serves to contain glass fragments in the unfortunate event of a display shatter.

    I had mine in a commuter case with tempered glass screen protector. Now I have around ten different cases and am using a mophie juice pack air and a tempeeed glass screen protector. We have busy lives and five kids so I try and protect my cellphone as much as possible. I would love to run around with my iPhone naked but don't like the idea of having to get it fixed or replaced because I failed to at least try and protect it. It's a trade off.

    I have the same setup. It works well. The Defender case is too bulky and the charging port too difficult to access.
