    Default Cases, why buy a Ferrari and then put a Ford Fiesta kit on it?

    I have never understood why people put cases on their phones that totally change the design and feel that the designers has in mind when they built the phone.

    Ironically the only phone screen I have ever broken was my bosses iPhone 4 in a Otter Box defender case.

    Fair enough. Just don't see the point of a case like the defender adds bulk and the protection it offers is over blown IMOP.

    I agree. I actually use a Defender case, but for certain situations. For the most part, I keep the phone bare while using a Zagg Full Body but I also use a slim snap-on case (similar to a Barely-There case) and then I use the Defender for when I might be outdoors or hanging out with my little brothers or niece & nephews at the park or whatever. I like having multiple cases depending on the specific needs.

    Why? Because my son dropped my phone a couple of weeks ago & I had to pay $100 to replace the glass.

    I don't like putting cases on phones either, but i would hate to drop the phone and not have one on it. A case has saved me from a damaged phone more times then i can count, so for me a case is a given. However, i do like my screen to be naked and have no screen protector, i just like the feel of the glass better.

    Do you buy insurance for your Ferrari? A case is like insurance for our phones.

    What is the one thing everyone wants from their phones?
    Longer battery life.

    The Fiesta can go much longer than a Ferrari.

    Plus Top Gear,s Fastest ever lap time on their course
    is the Fiesta, and it holds the indoor world speed record.

    Because of the scratches my iPod touch and BlackBerry used to get. When I got rid of the BB I always made sure I had a case before I ordered the phone I was getting.

    Just because you have a case on your phone doesn't insure you against damage. Scratches yes, but you can buy the Zagg full body protection to prevent that.

    You buy a Ferrari your gonna get insurance and a hell of a alarm(case). Course it cost 200k, I use cases because of how many people I see w/o one who have a jacked up phone and say if only I had a case I scratched it on day 1. Cases have saved me many times. I don't buy insurance because I already pay for to much insurance in life.

    I hate cases as well especially on a beautiful phone like the one X. That's why I bought this cheap clear TPU case from amazon. Still hate having a case but I like the fact that it still shows the beauty of the one X and offers some level of protection.

    Because maintenance on a Ferrari costs more than several Ford Fiestas ;-)
