    I really like the look of the ip4, and think a case would detract from its elegance, so aside from possibly some type of film protection for the back, Im really leaning towards not getting a case at all...

    anyone else?

    So far , I got it in a pouch with no protection whatsoever , Im really tempted to leave it completely naked to not alter the retina display....

    I carried my 3G in a horizontal belt pouch for two years without any screen damage, so I plan to treat the 4 the same way.

    For now, I'm just keeping it tucked into an older Griffin case I used for the original iPhone. Fits perfectly.

    I'd love to use it without a case, if it were possible to make calls using it this way...

    Not me...

    The reports of shattering scare me. Not to mention the antenna issue. So I got a $15 black rubber case to put over it. Signal issues are completely resolved and I don't worry near as much about what happens if it slips 12 inches to the floor. Yeah, does kinda kill the aesthetics but I can live with that I think.

    How true is this? Do cases/shields really detract from the display in a noticable way?

    Might get a pouch or something when it's in my pocket but otherwise it's gonna stay completely naked. :)

    In a scientific way , no idea how true is that , its just the general consensus you get from reading forums.

    Maybe someone has a scientific answer :D

    Which pouch are you guys using ? Im using so far a cheap one bought on ebay for my old iphone , it fits ok but not perfectly

    I understand in a scientific manner, looking at the screen through the glass is going to look better than through a sheet of plastic infront of the glass. But in a way that's actually noticable by the human eye?

    I'm still going with the invisibleShield on the back of the device, I must say i'm very tempted to install the screen cover if it really doesn't hinder it, at least until power support's solution is out.

    I've gone naked with all mine. I had each generation and never a problem. They all looked great when I sold them. I might get a bumper for this one for grip.

    I actually dropped my iPhone 4 today. It was a 2-3 foot drop onto office-grade carpet. Not a scratch, dent, mark, or any other sign of a problem. This isn't exactly simple window-pane glass.

    I'm with Craiger. Before it came out I thought "no way I'm putting a case on it"... I did fine with no case on the 3g and 3gs and always figured with those it would be cheap to replace the screen if I broke it. But now with all these people shattering theirs after one drop? I might have to suck it up and put a bumper on it.

    I've always used my iPhones without a case. But with the defective antenna this phone is useless.

    Who are "all these people?" I've only seen the Gizmodo post.

    I'm always naked.

    Anyway about the iPhone, yes mine is going naked. I never buy into all the "problems" and "issues" and other crap that comes out every time apple releases a product. Every single company goes through the exact same stuff with new products but its seems to only be sensationalized when it involves Apple because frankly, people LOVE to hate Apple for whatever reason.

    Oh, and I don't buy the "it fell from 12 inches and shattered" for a bit.

    I worked in electronics retail for a long time years ago and I can easily say no matter what item is sold roughly every 1 out of 10 to 15 come back defective. Its the nature of sensitive electronics combined with mass production. If things were made more carefully the prices would sky rocket and people would bitch about that. Pick your poison.

    On the bright side, this thread is about case or not. I could see someone starting the same titled thread about 1-888-FaceTime :p
