    This guy right here will!

    Never liked cases because it ruins the original form factor of the phone and makes things so bulky. Also, I'm not berating anyone that does especially if you work in a field like construction. For my usage, I do not like cases.

    Same as you. I need to keep the sexyness of my phone. I've had a white 4s since launch naked and its fine, no major scratches.

    No case, but I will get the Spigen Glast. And AppleCare+!

    I'm sure going naked with your iPhone will get you into trouble or jail :D
    (Sorry, was too obvious)

    I will get a case to cover the beauty and not make others envy ...

    I was heavily considering purchasing a Louis Vuitton sleeve and it costs $270. However, I think I'm going to spend that money on AC+ instead and use the remaining $170 for adapters and SUSHI!

    I will!

    no screen protector.. no case!
    The screen will look that much brighter without a protector. That's for sure! :D

    No case for me either. Will probably get a SquareTrade warranty though.

    Truprotection HD screen protector for me...basically same the one as powersupport offered. Had it for the 4S and was blown away.

    I get a scratch protector for the back of the phone as well.

    NEVER understood people that buy bulky cases for such an amazing looking phone. They destroy the look immediately. Makes no sense and don't try to tell me otherwise you otterbox lovin, waterproof defender idiots.

    Never liked cases, I ll just be careful! Cases are for people that put selofan on their remote controls and their car leather seats....hehehe....just a joke!

    What's the point of a good design if you have case covering it? Everything in life is disposable anyway...

    I never felt safe without a case since the iPhone 4. The original iPhone, the 3G and 3GS were all fine without cases.

    When I get the 5 in early December I definitely will not be getting a case. Maybe a screen protector but that's it.

    Woohoo! No screen protector too!

    I've noticed most of the glossy protectors don't have that oleophobic coating like the actual screen does. I really like wiping my phone right on my pants and it's clean again.

    Going with the hardwood flooring myself. I gave the bumper a try for a week or so, but other than that my 4 has been naked and is no worse for wear, and I'm not particularly gentle with my stuff either.


    I agree, if your going naked do it hard core.

    They make screen protectors now that are crystal clear.

    They call them HD screen protectors for the retina display.

    Instead of having a plastic feel like most protectors they feel like Glass.

    Its smooth and it does not have any of that orange peel like texture on the surface.

    I would only purchase one of these types for my retina display.

    The other ones ruin the quality.

    I'll be going naked too, just as I did with my 3GS and 4. Never had so much on a scratch on either of them too

    Have you checked out the Tumi Sleeve? It's only $55 and I think way better than an LV. It has these two slots for i.d. and credit card and it's very well made and is even paded within. I think, the LV is just made of leather which offers no protection, but the name. They make it for the 4S, but they should have one for the 5 soon.

    No case for me! Never understood them. It doesn't need to last forever and a scratch or two won't kill it, or me! The first bit of damage that happens to a device is gutting, then it really feels like it's mine. I can then relax and enjoy it as a device rather than treating it like a priceless fragile antique!

    People bang in about resale value. I just sold my ipad 1 on ebay and included photos of the scuffs on the back (toe caught on power cable in the first week) and i think it only lost about 5% compared to perfect items.

    Yep, naked on the 4S (and there are ZERO marks on it) and I will be doing the same on Friday with my new purchase.

    I lol'd. I have a friend (really, I do) that has spent more on cases than the phones themselves. Almost every week he has a new case and shows it off despite my repeatedly and relentlessly mocking him (did I mention he's my friend?). I've also replaced the LCD on two of his phones. I swear he thinks they're invincible because of the case and treats it as such. He always tells me I'll be sorry when I break mine (4 mostly naked years into these things without a problem)

    Big no no for me! I've been known to accidentally drop my iPhones and have the screens break. I'm more than likely going with a Lifeprood again. If not, an HD screen protector and a nice case; I've always wanted the Harry Potter cases from Warner Brothers! Lol

    I spent a period of time with my iPhone 4 completely unprotected (previously was in a Speck case). I'm not rough at all, I took pretty decent care of it. Right now it has a 99% scratch-free screen, and the back glass plate is scratched prominently in 2 places BUT this only happened on one day when I planted it on a stupid metal scrapey surface.

    Now that the iPhone 5 has an aluminium back, I'll probably use it without a case completely. I may consider getting a screen protector, maybe, but otherwise I am looking forward to going naked!
