    Curious on how the new iPhone's are holding up naked, post your iphone naked here. none of that you shouldn't use an iPhone without a case etc etc, I know you shouldn't. But just wondering how people use case less 6/6+ and how they're holding up.

    Only post if your rocking naked iphone... Save your comments of having a case lulz.

    Why shouldn't you use an iPhone without a case? That's the normal way. Encased or entombed is the other way. Do you buy a watch and wrap it? It's not naked or cased. It's normal or cocooned.

    Actually, anyone remember the 80's Swatch watches that had the thin plastic band across the face of the watch? They were all the rage back then.

    There's nothing in the instructions or manual that says an iPhone requires a case. Don't you think it's marketing (by case makers) and people just following what other people do and never questioning why? Teenage girls do it so they have some personality and decoration on their phone. If you are not a teenage girl I question the reason for a case. I sincerely doubt that Apple makes something that costs a few hundred bucks but then expects that you need to spend $50 on a case. That's absurd.

    Resale value, protection if you're clumsy, and a desire to keep the phone in like-new condition. Even if you don't drop the phone, it will likely become scratched. Not that I think a case is mandatory, but let's be honest: there are a lot more reasons to use a case than for those reasons you described regarding why teenage girl might use them.

    Not worried about resale value at all, it's not a car. I have a small blemish near the speaker hole from a slip other than that nothing, screen looks great from spending most of its time in my work pants.

    I call bs. I have never used a case and never not received full value at resale. I go to game stop. They pay me the full highest value they offer. Always. They only care about screen cracks or major blemishes. Otherwise if it works you are fine. Mint condition (zero dings) are not required for good resale value. many people buy a case as a reflex. Unthinking. Cause they see others do it.

    Uh there goes your problem, GameStop. Of course they won't offer you more. On ebay and Craigslist you can demand higher in pristine iPhones.

    Well when people say resale they likely are talking about the surprisingly high offers you can get on services like ebay and Swappa since these are the services that most people here on MR use as they net you the highest profit, by far, of any selling/trade in promotion you can find.

    Obviously GameStop will take your phone and give you full value when you are only receiving 50-60% of your actual used phone's value.

    Unfortunately, I noticed my phone is pretty bent yesterday. It doesn't bother me because functionality is my main concern, but it's definitely something to keep in mind if you use your phone naked. I just sold my scuffed up 5 for $185 so I don't think "resale value" is a good reason for keeping the phone in a case. My screen is also detaching from my phone in the bottom corner because of the bend but I'll try to use the phone as long as I can and swap it for a new one closer to my warranty expiring so I can get a new phone mid contract.

    Here's a pic for non-believers, because I know they'll be here before too long.

    Actually I know someone who trades their iphone right before the 1 year warranty expiration. That way he has a new phone every year. Pretty genius if you ask me.

    Yep, this is what I did with my 5 (a finicky sleep/wake button), and my 3G (small camera issue). I'm actually one of the few people who's happy to find something wrong with my phone that doesn't significantly affect functionality. There's no reason to freak out and return it right away if you can deal with it for a year.

    GameStop is more convenient. No fuss no muss. Cash. No weirdos.
