    Pondering going caseless (in my case an XS Max) for the first time in a while. After a few days I find myself hesitating to put my phone down on tables, counters, etc because there seems to be no way that feels ok to me.

    Screen down I worry about the screen. Back/camera down I worry about the camera.

    How do you handle it?

    Why don't you use a clear super slim case? Like the Totallee ones?

    I don't worry about those scratches that are inevitable from incidental contact with counters or desks or the cracked screen that will come from the first time I drop it on the pavement... caseless is definitely the way to go. I'd much rather admire the beauty of my phone than protect it from damage.

    As long as I don't drop it... it will always be beautiful! That's how I roll.

    Backside down. You'll get wear spots on the lower edge of the back but I wouldn't worry about the camera. I've never seen scratches or any other sort of damage to them on the phones I've used naked.

    I actually have one coming from Amazon but am not sure if I’m going to use it.

    I traded from an X in an apple leather case so am trying to cut down on bulk as much as possible in the trade to the Max.

    I always put screen protector on then face down. I use a case if I’m hiking or other phone risky stuff.
