:apple: Hey Guys. I've had my iPhone 6 Plus since around launch day. I've used a case the whole time due to the protruding camera lens and the device's slipperiness. How are you guy's iPhones holding up? Especially those of you 6 Plus owners who are going case-less.

I'm using my 6 without a case and it still looks like new. Not a single scratch. but antenna bands get colored from pants sometimes but I have so far managed to rubb it off.
But I'm considering buying a silicon case because the phone is so damn slippery! It feels like holding a piece of ice..but only dropped it once so far..

True that. Dropped my 6 twice the first two days I had it back in September while waiting for a Speck Candyshell case to arrive. Luckily no damage or scratches. Everyone I know who got a 6 has commented on how slippery it is because of the curved edges.

I like the Candyshell because it's quite grippy at the edges. The phone is in and out of my pocket 30-40x per day, and since wrapping it I've not had a single drop.

Dropped mine perfectly, it landed on the corner and despite the Sipgen Slim Armor case it didn't come out fine from the 35" drop.

These new iPhones seem to be more durable IMO, No more chamfered edges that get scratched up/scuffed up no matter how good of care you take of it, Have a Ghost Armor screen protector on my 6 Plus with Apple care+ on it, caseless...absolutely love it, love the feel and weight of the Plus caseless it is beautiful

My 6+ is still pristine after two weeks :p

Can't say the same for the Apple leather case. Starting to look and feel a little gross.

I held the phone without a case earlier and on and just preferred it. Not as easy to grip, but love the feel of aluminium and I actually appreciate the design.

Wondering whether to ditch the case altogether. After all the phone is both insured and covered under Apple Care+. It would be painful watching that screen shatter after a drop though.

My launch day 6 Plus is doing well actually. No drops or scratches yet. Had it in an Insignia case from Best Buy for about a week when I got my leather case from Apple. The day after getting it I had ZAGG Glass on the front and ZAGG Original installed on the back of the phone too.

Purchased my iPhone 6 on launch and am continuing to use it "naked". My screen has a few very light hair line markings on the screen from removing the phone in/out of my jean pocket....other then that...its perfect.:apple:

I use a case because I know that I drop things. I have been using Apple's silicon case. My phone is perfect. But I did have too get the case replaced once because it had a chip in the bottom left corner, but not really a big deal because Apple replaced it no problem.
