    I do have a glass screen protector on and use a case at work, but for everywhere else I'm comfortable going bareback. I prefer it actually. Just some about the way it feels in the hand.
    I'm thinking about just slapping on a dbrand skin and calling it a day.
    Anyone else feel the same way?

    I always put a case on my phones - improves the grip and protection level

    I'll probably just get a thin clear case for mine in the future. I never use any screen protectors on my phones.

    I did that with my pixel 4 xl and used that setup for about 4 months without damaging it or dropping it at all. Right now I have a glass screen protector on my p5 and have a case, but since I've been home mostly with it I keep the case off. I used to do that with the pixel 4xl and keep the case off unless I went somewhere like around the pool/beach or somewhere that might be risky. I might do this as well for the p5. The dbrand skin work e well for me on the pixel 4xl but man I love the feel of the 5 so much more almost feels like I already have a skin o. It that I don't know if I want to cover it. What to do?

    There is nothing quite like using a phone without a case. Rock on!

    I am struggling with this!

    I have used Nomad cases for all of my previous pixel devices, I love the look and feel of leather and they offered good protection. But this year, Nomad has decided not to support the Pixel 5. The Bellroy cases feel like they do not offer the same quality or protection as the Nomad cases do. So, right now I have one of the Google OEM cases on it but I am having trouble getting into it.

    I really like the idea of using it without a case, but I have a 6 year old who I occasionally let play games on it and he...well...treats it like a 6 year old!

    What to do, what to do?

    Here's a problem I have with this, it's surely nice to use the phone naked without the case, however, the second you drop it on cement/concrete / asphalt outside, the gorilla glass five screen could crack. That was my first worry with my Pixel 3 XL!

    I do have a case (the exact one in the picture), I'm usually pretty good with maintaining control of my devices, but I still keep a case on. I work with metal chips, and even though not too much gets on my phone, a scratched device is an eye sore that I'd like to avoid. I do take the case off when people ask to look at it, just so they can feel the coating. I will say the fabric case actually makes the phone more slippery.

    see that's the one thing I don't do on my phones and haven't done for years. I don't put a screen protector on my phone I don't feel the need for it. but it just makes me so nervous to go without a case but it looks so much better hahaha it's a double-led sword.

    I always slip one on before I do the deed. And I always put my phone's in cases along with a screen protector. Rocking a Spigen Liquid Air Armor on my P5.

    I just put a Luibor case on my Pixel 5. I like the feel, grip and especially, the fingerprint guide. The raised lip assures I don't put the phone done on glass. It was inexpensive on Amazon.

    See I am more paranoid about my screen than a case. I absolutely need a screen protector. I first put a Lifeproof Wake case on while waiting on the Dbrand Grip, but the Lifeproof is straight up trash in my opinion so I have this Spigen Liquid Air and it's really awesome!

    That said when not working I take the case off.

    Haha yep yep I can hear you. I mean for me, I am not that nervous about it. I think a thin case will just do it for me. I know what you mean though.

    Dropped it the first day I had smashed the screen, I dropped my old pixel 3 many times no issues, don't think the 5 is built too well.

    I am using a glass screen protector and also a case. It took a couple of days to get the case after my Pixel 5 was delivered and it slipped out or my hands a few times prior to putting it into the case. Luckily no breaks. I chose to to with a clear case with a black bumper to show off the sage green!
