    I know theirs been some discussion about this already. Here's an article about the iPhone X but it still applies to us Droid fans. Penny for your thoughts.

    I wouldn't use a phone without a case, not these ones that are upwards of $700 - 900 a piece. My cases have saved my phone a few times and they keep it from getting knicked up. My Note is far too slippery without a case, though the black looks fantastic without one. Sometimes I'll have it out for a few minutes if I'm not up and about. I'm very protective of my devices.

    Had alot of phones and upon termination they all looked brand new. Currently favor Case-Mate black leather folio with naked screen.

    If you want to sell your "old" flagship, then using a case is a MUST! But if you just buy mid-range/low end phones then not using a case makes more sense.

    So true! And I'm always selling phones. Back when I was a Windows Phone fanboy those phones didn't need a case though. They we're tough and had a unique body that REALLY didn't need a case. The Lumia 1520...now that was a phone!

    Agreed I always use a case.

    Just my personal opinion...I have always used a case on my phone.

    Personally I have never used those really large bulky cases, but I do typically use a hard clear shell cases. And just like other have mentioned, the case has helped save my phone from scratchs and dings.

    I prefer a case.
    Usually very light thin shells.
    For me bare phones are very difficult to hang on to...so a case is needed.

    I prefer a clear case, so my phone has protection, but the colour still is visible.

    My LG V30 is my first phone with a glass back and the first phone I put a case on.

    My previous phone was the LG G4. It finally boot-looped after 2.4 years; ran great until then.

    I love the V30. Runs fast; good camera; great sound system + a wired headphone jack. Lots of storage space + an SD card. Nice screen, good battery life. Great looks without a case.

    S8 Plus here.

    No case, first time ever.

    I had been using cases but with the rounded corners and screen protectors it just got old.
    Tired of making my nice slim phone feel thick and bulky.
    Slim protectors are decent.

    So for about 2 months now I've gone with just a skin on the back and a screen protector on front.
    Love the feeling.
    Wont go back to a case.

    A good read. While I agree that slapping a case on a phone can certainly devoid it of its overall elegance; I'd rather risk a bit of that than drop it and have it not be even slightly protected.

    However, I try and meet this gap halfway by buying clear and/or thinner cases for my phones; to provide some kind of shock absorption while also still preserving most of the weight, look, and feel of the phone.

    Plus, I'm too clumsy to not be without a case and tempered glass screen protector. Heck, I bang myself and my phone into walls/doors while listening to music; and my phone seems to be more slippery these days... Or I'm just more tired and so it falls for that reason. 🤣

    Yeah...I think a skin is the way to go. If I can find one for my Mate 9 I'd get it.

    I use a thin case, probably drop the phone 3-4 times a week, not infatuated with it so I don't coddle it. Thing is, I work construction and it takes a beating, I've never had one of those bulky cases...ever, and I've never broken a thing on any of my phones...they've all gone the distance. That's enough of a beta test for me...thin case for me going forward too.

    Sounds like you have good luck with your phones - that's great! Sometimes (and I say this because I'm guilty of it!), I think some of us coddle our phones so much that that is why things happen to them (reverse psychology at its finest!).

    As I wrote previously I use a padded leather folio w/naked screen. It adds some bulk but by removing the hard, angular edges it actually makes the S8+ and Note 8 feel smaller. Belive it or not.

    Same here, and you're right: it really does make my S8+ look smaller. Love the look, feel and grip.

    If you want to protect your expensive equipment, it is absolutely necessary to buy a mobile phone case.

    I did for awhile because I rarely drop my phones but lately I've been stupid so I'm back with cases except when I'm at home.

    I dropped my OnePlus 6 twice after just a few months, most recent was because I couldn't find the case and had to leave...you can guess what happened. LOL

    I sold it and my Huawei P20 Pro is coming tomorrow.
