Do you keep your iPhone in a case? Silicone, leather, sock, any case?

Yes. Mophie protection and functionality ;) I'm not sure you'll get a clear representation here. There's a lot of iPhone nudists here. The average joe blow consumer lets retailers scare them into protection

i honestly can't think of a single person that has one, but I believe there are probably a lot of covered iphones somewhere.

I have in the past.. was going to go "naked" with the iPhone 6 but the (possible) protruding camera has me thinking I might NEED to stay in the case. :mad:

:apple:

Please. It's not always low-brow consumers falling for marketing hype. I like the feel of a case on my iPhone. It's also a Mik sound amplification case, so my case serves multiple purposes. Give people a little credit.

so you are saying all you see are naked iPhones?

If so, it's completely opposite from where I live where 99% have some type of cover. I'm rocking a Lifeproof Fre myself

It's very rare that I see a caseless (naked) smartphone.

I use a very thin, inexpensive, clear case on mine. Just enough to offer some basic protection. It seems a shame to me to cover up a nice looking phone with anything but a clear case, or to add bulk to it. I also don't use screen protectors. Prior to getting my 5s, my 3Gs was caseless.

I use a case on my phone as well and like it I'm just saying majority of average consumers that don't live and die technology like some here use cases.

I keep mine inside a rubber case inside a zip lock inside a ribbed trojan inside a coin purse inside an otterbox inside a VHS sleeve inside a glass case inside a gun safe inside a Russian mink hat. Some might say it's overkill, but I spent $200 on this beautiful thing and damned if I'm gonna ruin it!

Most of the time naked but if I go somewhere that I think I may need one I use the Caudabe Veil. Mainly to protect the back from whatever surface I set it on.

Same here all I see is iPhones in a case and it's rare when I see one naked. I have a case on mine as well.

Combination of bare nekkid and Mophie case, depending on the situation.

I think the iPhone 6 will be less prone to dings... simply due to the rounded edges. No more chamfers to bump into things. I might test iPhone 6 naked.

No.
I got my iPhone 5 over a year ago and it still looks like new.
I don't understand why people buy a smartphone with a really stunning design and then hide it.

I think I'd be more inclined to keep mine naked if I wasn't left handed and didn't wear a wedding ring.

I keep my iPhone 5 in a transparent case
That way I can enjoy the design (I really like the white one) and I am not afraid of scratches.
I loved iPhone 4 and 4S because they were much more resistant to scratches, I wish next iPhone would have the same strength

As I think about it I have spotted some with skins, but the vast majority of all cellphones in my vicinity are nice and naked:eek:
