    If I had the 6+, then I would get a screen protector. Since I'm getting the 6s, I'll only get a good case.
    I've never had a screen protector on iPhone 5, just a good case with a little bumper on the sides.

    Hypothetically, a TPU case. Translucent for me. I have a blue Incipio on my iPhone 5 currently.

    A case and a screen protector. Not glass though. I like the Clear Coat because I like the traction it gives me on the screen.

    Never used a case or any kind of screen protectors with my previous iPhones and the 6+ was in an excellent condition when I sold it off. But this time, the saddle brown really really made me want to dress up my 6s+. But then, I'm not sure whether I'd be ready for the added 20g to the 6s+ along with another ~20g for the case (yeah, coming from the 'Disappointed...weight' thread; please don't chastise me;)), not to mention the added bulk however minimal it might be. I have skilled myself to shuffle around the 6+ in a way that I mostly use it one-handed (without using reachability). So any extra bulk/weight would be a concern for me. So for the time being, am gonna just get a space grey dock and shut up until I get used to the first extra 20g for single handed shuffling around before thinking about another 20g.

    Apple silicone case and the seidio surface holster. They are awesome.

    Headphones! I've been using my iPhones naked since the 5s and plan to continue to do so. Only other thing I like to use is a nice pair of IEM and some Bluetooth speakers

    I've been using my 6 since launch day last year without a case on for even a moment and the phone is fine. I do have AppleCare+ though for the peace of mind, and the free express replacements which have come in handy a few times for hardware issues. Got AC+ with my 6s+ this year too since I feel like that will be more prone to damage.
    Thus far have not cracked a single iPhone screen in the 5+ years I have owned them for.

    Since this is supposed to be a far more durable phone, a black leather with SG 6s + will be perfect for me. Just waiting
    On what the verdict is with screen protectors

    I don't need anything other than better headphones, which I already have.

    I guess the morden phone do not need screen guard and case is required denpending on the enviourment. However i had this experience with my other phone it was been held by my sister and she suddenly drop it we were in the elevator and the evelvator floor was metal however because i had screen guard which broke ofcouse the phone escaped without a scratch.

    So that when I learned my lesson have screen guard just in case

    A case! I haven't tried or owned a single Apple phone that didn't feel like it could use the extra protection - either because it has delicate glass surfaces or because it feels slippery in my hands. At the prices they sell for here in Finland I don't want to risk a 700-800 euro phone getting smashed because it slipped out of my grip.

    Car dock / cradle.

    I have yet to find the perfect iPhone car dock / cradle. My criteria are:
    - No suction cups, must mount to a flat surface in the car using 3M tape, command strips, automotive velcro, or equivalent.
    - Must have an integrated MFI lightning port (either using an OEM cable, or built-in).
    - Must be able to easily fit any iPhone (5 and newer) with or without a case, without needing manual adjustment.
    - Must hold the phone in portrait view (music app doesn't really work in landscape).
    - Ideally, but not required, not holding the phone from the top, so it can be easily removed just by pulling up on it.

    So far, I have found that the FuseChicken todoDock is the closest thing. However, they don't make it anymore. Their Bobine Auto product looks like it might fit the bill too.

    There are also some on Amazon I plan to try (http://www.amazon.com/Sinjimoru-Cha...sbs_107_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=0MHQ5Y8NXPJS4M2W0WFZ) once my current one doesn't work anymore.

    I prefer to get both a screen protector and a case. Contrary to what others have experienced, my screen became scratched pretty easily in just a couple weeks.

    I always get a case (usually a couple, one being clear/frosted that I usually end up sticking to), a glass screen protector (waiting this time around until there are some reviews on how it may or may not affect Force Touch), a car charger (this time around, since I am going from Samsung to Apple), and an additional home charger.

    I would say a case and a screen protector ( not the glass ones ) would be my two primary choices although I also like to have a second lightning cable and charger for on the go and to use at work.

    I love just about every kind of case (TPU, Apple leather & silicone, Speck Candyshell, etc) and have about half a dozen lightning cables already anyway, but another charger would always be nice. I could leave it in the suitcase so it's always ready for travel.
