    Anyone not using a case. I've always used a case but I'm considering not using a case.

    The 2 XL has a great feel in the hand and is not anywhere near as slippery as the Pixel XL. Nevertheless, I'll be using a case - both for protection from scuffs & scratches and also from the occasional drop.

    I'll be using a case so I can protect it and to preserve the resale value.

    At present I'm not planning on using a case. It feels grippy and comfortable (non XL version)
    I will keep it until it dies so I don't care about scratches etc.
    If I find a super slick case I will consider it..

    I've always kept my phones naked. I usually don't re sell them and keep them for 2 years minimum.

    Knock on wood, from age 19 to 28 I've never broken a phone screen, not even a crack.
    Going with a Seidio case as usual when they eventually make it.

    My phone would not last a month without a case, have never broken one with one on, dating back to '92. Before that I think it was in a bag...lol

    Currently naked as well though I eventually plan to put a thin case. I used to go naked with my old phones without any problems until I bent my 6P in half while snowboarding and dropped it a few other times. Learned my lesson and started using a thin case since then.

    I always use a TPU skin, I can't think of any reason not to.

    Naked, except if I do something like camping or go to the beach. I'll put it in a sock when I carry it in a backpack.

    I've used my 6P and S8 naked. Yeah, obviously I'm taking a risk, I'm just very careful. I've used cases on several phones before, and I've come to despise them.

    Now is that a black and white sock?

    I never go without a case. I don't often drop my phones, but it does happen. I don't want to risk damage.

    I never use cases on my phones, though I do usually spring for the insurance just in case (two broken screens since I started using smartphones in 2008). I'm certainly not going to start with my stormtrooper XL.

    I wrapped my XL with a DBand wrap and it looked good for a while, but after dropping it multiple times the edges came off and it looks like crap. I do think I'm finally going to go for a case. I'm too clumsy.

    Yeah, I think people just need to decide for themselves how conscientious they are about holding their phones, and how much peace of mind you want in case of an accident. My wife always uses a TPU or thin shell case. My daughter also went with one of those, but still managed to break a screen (on my beloved N6 I'd bequeathed her!), so her next phone will get full-on balistic protection.

    Cases can be hard to find the one you really want when it’s still early yet. I’m looking for a nice thin leather shell type case preferably that leaves the buttons exposed. Still searching but yeah some type of minimal thin case for me.

    I bought a Google case with a cloth finish and it was pricey at $39 but I fell the need for protection, will decide on a different one later

    Right now no, got 2 cases coming in today, but I am waiting for Spigen and Google cases go on sale. I actually would rather not use a case, but I use a magnetic phone holder in my car so I tape the metal piece to the case.

    On my current phone Note 5 Edge I started with a bulky UAG case. Could not comfortably keep in my pocket and getting it in and out was a struggle.

    Then went with a front/back screen protector plastic film and that worked great and kept my phone pristine until after a year and the back protector film started to peel off. I order a new screen protector but it only came with the front screen protector so I bought the thinnest clear case for the back I could find.

    I dropped the phone a few times and zero damage. Not sure if there is a market for this 3 year old phone but when I take off the screen protector and thin back case then factory reset, the phone will look like new.

    I do buy insurance but never used it.

    My 14 year old daughter on the other hand used insurance on her much better cased up iPhone 3 times. However, her phone when not eating, sitting in class, sleeping, or playing a sport is permanently attached to her nose. I guess it unhooks from her nose and hits the pavement once in a while.
