    Default HTC One (M8): Rather go naked than wear a case?

    There's been a lot of talk about protection cases lately and I have been browsing the options out there. I haven't yet received my M8 but I'm contemplating going 'naked' without a case because the phone is so gorgeously designed. Anyone else carrying their M8 around without a case? Should I be concerned about a slippery shell? My hands are on the smaller side, and I'd hate for the M8 to slip out of my hands and hit the pavement...

    I've been going back and forth. Considering the phone is already about as large as I'd ever go, making it larger with a case is quite a proposition. Obviously, it looks a thousand times better without a case. But the phone is very, very slippery indeed.

    I suppose it ultimately depends on your comfort level, how you'd feel if it got a few nicks and scrapes, and whether you tend to drop your phones. I almost never drop my phones. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I've dropped a touchscreen phone since my first iPhone in 2008 ... and only one of those drops was on pavement. On the other hand, I like for my phones to be pristine. When I sell them, I like to be able to state with confidence that the phone is in mint condition.

    I'm using a case at the moment, though I went naked all last week.

    The back is a bit slippery but I'm keeping mine naked. This phone is too gorgeous and satisfying in the hand to put in a plastic case.

    Get a case ASAP. I have big hands, I'm 6_4" and it's so frigging slippery! Mine hit the concrete 2 minutes after I got it ( fell out of the bag) and now I have pin size marks along the back, I ordered a Supecase on Amazon the day before I got it. .....

    It does feel good naked though.......

    But I'm all about the case.

    Just setting it on a table or something feels like the back Wil get beat up in time.

    It makes zero sense to cover up the M8 WITH a plastic case. I traded my gun metal for silver and now M8 is perfect feeling.

    So you are recommending cases for people that carry the M8 in a plastic store bag? Sounds like plastic bags and cases got you in trouble on the first place.

    HTC One M8 already dropped!


    Posted this before. Learned my lesson. Fell out of my pocket when I was getting out of my friend's truck. Use a case at least when you are outdoors.

    I have a case that has a clear back. Corny I'm sure, but it gives me protection and still let's the metal finish be seen.

    I am going naked with the ArmorSuit Military Shield skin protecting it for the time being. As it just looks too good naked to cover it up with a case for me.

    I had to get a case once the sprint rep dropped my phone the day I got it........ And the phone isn't heavy enough which adds to the slippery nature of the phone....

    It's only a matter of time before you drop this thing without a case on it! Way too slippery for me. I've got a gold phone with blue Supcase from Amazon. This case is awesome!! You can still see the color of the phone, both front & back. Highly recommend!

    I only use a case while at work, rest of the time it goes naked.

    This is the one I have. I got it for $.01 with $1.99 shipping. It looks like they raised the price a dollar recently though.

    Such a great deal, and a very decent case until I get my Dot View.

    i use a case only in certain times: when at the gym, before going to bed i put a case on it because its been known to wind up on the floor by morning, and if i know i am not going to use it much that day i put a case on it and let it sit wherever.

    I admire people who go naked with their Iphones and HTC Ones. They're such beautiful devices and eye-catching. I just can't bring myself to do it.

    I've got the supcase with the frosted back, looks great and the way I look at it is that a beautiful M8 does not look so beautiful with scratches and dings all over it

    I agree, except for my friend who is clumsy with his iPhone 4S. It is cracked all over and you can see some internals from the front. It's eye catching, just not in a good way.

    I've been caseless for about a month. I hate the added bulk and weight. Yeah I could have bought a slimline case but those really don't offer drop protection.

    I've dropped it twice so far on to concrete. If you drop the phone, its gotta get scuffed up with light silver marks. For me, I don't really care. It's just a phone. To me a little wear and tear adds character.

    I just have ghost armor on the screen. I feel that will provide all the necessary protection.

    I've been carrying my M8 around w/o case on a lot recently after using one at the beginning. Fortunately, not a single scratch on the screen, lenses, or back has been found, yet. But more fortunately is my sister just made a little carrying bag for me (and for my brother, too). It can also be easily attached to the computer bag that I carry with me to work. I just have to show off this lovely bag from my sister (the left one is for my brother, the right one is for me). She's very into quilting.
