well it's "real world" scratch resistant. They also replace for cosmetic damages now so if you screw up and your bumper is a little dented you can either take the hit now or wait to see if your phone gets any more damage.If you like to keep it clean and somewhat safe, than yes, to a screen protector and bumper at least. Screen is not absolutely scratch resistant as testified by a few individuals no matter if its true it has Gorilla glass. And its nice to have AppleCare + as a back up in case I do mess up.
you could always just "accidentally" drop it onto concrete, knowing my luck the screen still wouldn't break, I always manage to get these "indestructible" iPhones.
Why not? They would rather you drop it in a pool before bringing it in?If you don't mind having a scratched up phone then don't cover it. AC+ will not replace it with only that issue.
Technically that would be accidental damage. And if someone one wanted to use one of their 2 $50 replacements that's up to them. Who would stop you?
technically you have 2 phones left, this one and the next one lol. So maybe be a little careful, then when it comes around to the next iPhone release or around the time for major resale value "accidentally" drop that one if it's banged up and get a new one using your last shot
around $50 but my mom gets a discount because she works for the state so it came to 37.5, rounded up to $40. It was at the AT&T store even though I have Verizon now, awkward conversation when they asked who my service provider was lmao sorry AT&T I had to leave you guys.Why not? They would rather you drop it in a pool before bringing it in?
Also how much did you spend on the defender? AppleCare + is $100 plus $50 to use if broken, so $150. I always get my cases off of Amazon and my otterbox commuter was only $17 for my 4S last year. i would never spend so much money on a case, but if you did, then I would suppose AppleCare+ is worth it
something people overlook with applecare+ is that its also extended warranty, not necessarily if it dies completely. so if your home button starts acting up, you can always bring it in for that
If you don't have any protection on the phone it will always have some scratches on it. Many are not happy with that. AC+ is not really related to that as it does not cover normal wear and tear.Technically that would be accidental damage.

i have the white model so my phone doesn't really get scratches but if it got to the point where it became an eyesore to look at my phone regardless of a case or not I would break it, I don't like using cases when I'm at home or in general.If you don't have any protection on the phone it will always have some scratches on it.

If you want to break your phone every time you scratch it that's not going to work for long....
