On my 5s I applied a screen film and put it in a case before turning it on. Anyone else?

Happy with the fit and finish?

Mine went straight into a case and with a glass screen protector on it.

I got a minimal case, so it still feels beautiful in my hand.

Also - DO NOT buy the glass screen protector from Spigen. I'm having issues with mines.

Popped a case (black bumper / clear back) from Amazon on it right in the Apple Store, purchased AppleCare+ as well.

I have Spigen screen protectors (not glass) coming in next week -- I don't like scratches and I live in a dusty, sandy region and get onto some nasty trails.

I love a naked iPhone. Once I find the right case... For now I'll enjoy it nude!!

The case I ordered off Amazon wouldn't have been here until Monday, so I cancelled it. I'll hit the Apple store after work for a case and screen protector.

Really wish I could trust myself to go without a case, this 6plus just feels great to hold.

Do they make screen protectors that follow the curve on the side yet? I have never run one before but I think I will for my 6+

Case arrived on Monday from Amazon, it went on immediately. I however am not for the first time going to use a screen protector. With the rounded edges of the new 6 screen the protector would annoy both in touch and looks.

The rep paired me with a very nice case that I more-or-less took a chance with. Even with it, I'm tempted to just go caseless for a little at some point. It feels so thin!

I am such a klutz that I dare not go nude (I should wear pads in the shower) however, I'm thinking a bumper and AppleCare might be all I need. Then my biggest problem might be bumping against car keys.

Glad you're getting them next week, I like spigen products but the screen protectors for the 6 are horrid, cutouts missing, doesn't fit properly. They did email me earlier this week and are sending out a new pack of the updated ones, so I'll just use the ones I have temporarily. It's better then nothing! The spigen case seems spot on though and I'm happy with it.

I'm using a case for the first time after five years of iPhone use. I'm only doing it because of the camera lens. If the lens were flush, I wouldn't bother.

I'm using the midnight blue leather case. I don't see the need for screen protector. I've only had one microscopic scratch on my four phones and it was due to putting keys in same pocket accidentally.

It isn't slippery and too thin to the point I would be afraid of jumping it while using. The Ipod Touch 5th gen was a different story.

For now, going naked even though I got a case from Amazon. While not in use, I have a sleeve for protection.

I went with a griffin reveal case. Nice rubber bumper around it and a clear back. Hardly adds any thickness (just 1.6mm) but feels solid and the rubber makes the phone have a good grip compared to when it has no case. I'm not sure ill use this one for a long time but it'll hold me over for now. I like very bare and non intrusive cases so hopefully something a little better will come along.

Bought a leather case from my local apple store this morning and as soon as UPS delivers my 6+ it will immediately go on the phone! I'm not taking any chances.

I got a Spigen case via Amazon the other day.

Put my 6 into the case after i got everything set up. I went from my iPhone 5 in a Lifeproof case for the past 2 years, to a naked phone, it's a nice change up.

Mine immediately went into an Otterbox Commuter with a glass shield protector. I had my last phone outside of the case for a day or two while I waited for a case, and it had small scratches on it from riding around in the cup holder of my car.

I abhor screen protectors. But I did pick up an apple leather case for my iPhone six just for use when I went out. However, it is the first case that I really like and I'm enjoying using it. The iPhone six is so thin that the case adds some grip to it.
