Gimodo gave 5 recs on cases. The first one is that they all prefer to go nude. No case. They stated that a case does cause damage in one way or another to phones. I agree. I have had two phones and both had all kinds of scratches from sand on the back and edges of my Iphones. True a case will protect the phone from falls but to keep it pristine I doubt it. I have been looking at the workmanship of the phone for awhile last night and it is a thing of beauty.. why hide it under a basket? I am thinking of a clear skin now.. your thoughts?
