    Hey Guys.

    Had my iPhone 6 Plus 128Gb since launch day.
    I love it.

    But i have the Apple Leather Black Case covering the whole back and sides, which is half the aesthetic appeal of the 6.

    Do you find it a necessity to use a case for your iPhone 6 Plus? Or do you live with the risk for the added aesthetic appeal?

    * Asking specifically for the 6 Plus, as it has been proven to break screen much easier than the 6.

    Thanks :D

    Let me see. My iPhone 6 plus 64gb cost me in excess of $1000 bucks. A case costs $15 bucks. So, phuuck yes I use a case.

    I use the ringke fusion clear case. So far a great case.

    When I held the 6+ in landscape to take a picture with the phone naked, it slipped right out of my hands and have had the apple leather case on ever since for the grip factor.

    Same thing happened to me except I was taking video, thank God it fell on the sofa and not the floor. It freaked me out though and it's been in my case ever since.

    Yes. I use Apple's leather case.

    Naked iPhone 6 Plus is too slippery (given the weight).

    I've got an Apple leather case, but lately I've been using my phone without a case and I'm finding it tougher to go back to using a case again. Without a case, this is the best looking phone ever made. With a case it's just another phone.

    Yes. I love minimal cases that showcase the rear like bumpers really that provide mainly an extra grip more than anything.

    I cannot stand big bulky ugly cases and don't see the point.

    Going back to the first night the original iPhone was released, I'd never used a case until now. Put the Apple brown leather case on my 128gb gold. Just felt too slippery without it.

    Yeah I preordered one of those I-blason otter box knockoffs for $10 when I preordered my phone.

    It's great and not nearly as bulky a real otter box!

    I've gone between the Spigen, Air Jacket Force from Power Support and the Apple Leather case. The Power Support case is probably one of the best! Slim and has a nice feel. However, it's a pain to remove. My fingers got so red and sore, took me 20 minutes to remove it.
    The leather case is still my favorite, but I hate that the lip is uncovered. :(

    I usually go naked. Sometimes I put the Apple leather case on it.

    I think moreso than other years, this is a time when the phone is almost designed with the assumption a case will be used.

    I used to go naked all the time. But not anymore.

    Used it with a case for about a month. Then, used a BSE for about two weeks. Now I have a Black Leather wrap from Slickwraps.

    Have both the leather and silicone case. Both add more grip over a naked iPhone. However I do love me a naked iPhone. At the moment in using the silicone case since it seems like a much better fit over the leather one.
