    Unsure of what to get personally, interested to see what others are getting.

    I'm looking for something quite minimal, possibly a bumper or thin plastic clip on jobby. Most seem to clash with the gold finish though

    If I had to get the gold 5s, then I would get something like an otterbox to make sure every inch is covered up.

    I agree

    I agree. An otterbox will protect it from fall damage. I'm gettign the 16GB Gold 5S. Can't wait!

    If you buy a gold iPhone and cover up every inch with a case, doesn't that defeat the purpose?

    That's why I said if I had to get a gold 5S, that I would keep it covered up ;)

    No case, just a clear skin. If I'm going gold, the world needs to know. :)

    I've ordered a Speck Candyshell in White/Peacock.
    The ring around the home button will still be gold so people will be able to tell which one i have ;) I drop my phone too much to not have a case like the candyshell on it!

    Does the clear plastic stay pristine, or do you notice scratches on it after using it for awhile?

    You're counting on people having better visual discrimination than I do. There's no way I would notice that detail unless I was sitting right next to you.

    I honestly don't care that much if people know which color I have.

    If I were getting an iPhone 5S I'd likely get a Gemshell so you could actually see the phone itself.

    I'm not getting gold. Love the Sector 5 bumper cases without the full back.

    I honestly still can't believe people use cases on their phones. Are we in the 90's?

    And I still can't believe the attitude of some of the posters on this site. If you have nothing positive to contribute, don't post.

    With the alternative being a shattered phone on the first drop? You bet your ass.

    I reserved a gold iPhone and I'm going to pair it with a see-thru red plastic case. It should clash with the gold on the back, yet show the lovely gold accents from the front.
