Not sure ive really seen anybody talk about this yet but the feel of this phone is different than anything ive used before. One word to describe it is buttery smooth. The glass and stainless steel just feel way different than past iPhones. Almost feels soft in a way even though I know they are hard materials. I do plan on running the X naked just like the all of my last ones going back to the 4. My 3g was the only phone I had in a case.
