    As with every previous iPhone I've had, I have a light case (Apple Silicone case) on my iPhone XS.

    I'm curious how many are going completely caseless, and how many are using various levels of protection for their new phones.

    My case is a shockproof/dust proof/waterproof case and I got it through a great app for super cheap

    Metal bumper with front and back glass protectors. Makes the phone feel similar to. Naked, but provides some shock and drop protection.

    Same setup worked awesome
    For my X which was dropped quite a few times.

    I always use Apples leather cards. Have never failed me considering how much I drop my phones.

    The same way I always protect my iPhones: with a Caudabe Sheath. Thinner than the Apple cases, fantastic grip, non-obnoxious design. Big fan. Occasionally I'll go naked, but I can't do it for long.

    Apple Leather Case and Belkin S/P.

    Still can't find a case I really like. Most of them are garbage or overpriced. Or overpriced garbage.

    What do you not like about the leather case?

    I do. It's pretty much my only choice currently.

    Just having trouble finding something I really like.

    I'd go case less if it wasn't for the pop out camera.

    I think you may have misread my question.

    You say you're having trouble finding something you really like so you must not really like the leather case. What is it that you don't like about it?

    Sena's leather cases are the only ones that I can stand when it comes to leather and being priced where I like it.

    I use Anker's tempered glass screen protectors as well.

    OtterBox Defender. I take no chances when it comes to protection. These phones are glass and handle like wet bars of soap.

    May I ask where you found this case? I'm intrigued by the red buttons, but can't find this model.

    Thanks

    :rolleyes:

    I have a X but it's basically the same phone. It has survived perfectly in Apple Leather cases over the year+ I've had it.

    I'm going to lose my vision one of these days after rolling my eyes at all of the "wet bar of soap" comments around these forums. Have you actually touched wet soap before?

    Thanks!
    I found it on the BestBuy website, even a beautiful white Stormtrooper case.
    Such a pity that I live in Europe, while BB only ships to US addresses. ;=(

    I'll keep on searching for a way to get my hands on these two. My next project.

    Meh. I like it. It’s “alright”. Takes some getting used to after using a Rhinoshield for several months. Looking for something different other than the Rhinoshield I had for the 8 +.

    Are you looking for something more on the heavy side? UAG has some really nice cases, as does Magpul.
