    Lol - anybody beside me dropped theirs yet? I'm rocking the phone naked and dropped it in the bathroom. about 12 hours after getting it. No damage but I'm pissed at myself. Oh well at least I wasn't on international television...

    I'd hope your bathroom wasn't on international television.

    Will be without a case til Tuesday. Super protective and gentle with my 6 Plus

    I'd probably croak if I dropped mine.

    I haven't, yet. I did immediately put a Skinomi and case on it, though. No way am I chancing a shattered screen as I do drop my phone occasionally.

    Yah you guys are funny (actually j and dmax, nice pickup, I wasn't thinking) - but yeah I was mad for dropping it on a tile floor. I was being careful, but the 6 is definitely more slippery with no case than the 4/s and 5/s. I'll definitely put it in some kind of sleeve, but I don't like the otterbox style cases - imho negates much of the fine design of the slim phone

    I'm keeping mine in a thin new little footie sock. Works well :)

    I find the iPhone 6 so light and skinny that I have a hard time of getting a good grip on it. With that said, I'm ashamed to admit I've already dropped my 6 twice, both about 3-4 foot drops. I've had iPhones for 7 years and this phone bluntly feels "slippery" to me. Definitely investing in a case.

    I almost did today, however after almost dropping it I ordered a case for pickup from Best Buy from Insignia. Insignia. I was surprised. I thought they made TVs not iPhone cases.

    Anywho, I wanted clear, I ended up having to get gray/clear which is a gray silicone around the edges of the phone and the back of the phone is a frosted clear. Pretty nice, it'll do the job until Monday when I get my black Apple Leather case in.

    Yep, it slid right off the table when I went to pick it up. I think I still need to get used to grabbing the less boxy, blocky form. Thank goodness it had a case on when it hit the hardwood floor.
