    I often use phones without cases. I might wear one the first couple of weeks, but once I get past the honeymoon phase, I enjoy a phone without a case.

    But I don't know if I'll ever feel comfortable going caseless with the Honor 8. I'm curious--has anyone been brave enough to use this phone sans case?

    I have read of some doing it here. Assuming that you don't drop it, people are reporting that the back glass scratches pretty easily

    Nope. This phone is a bit too slippery for my liking to consider this. However, if you register your phone early with Honor, you get free 3 months glass replacement (for just cracked glass).

    And yeah the back scratches easily, and it doesn't help that the phone is so flat for that situation.

    I'll use mine naked occasionally. A few scuffs on the back have happened, but nothing major. Just don't set it on an incline!

    Couldn't agree more about setting it on an incline. It's insanely slippery. I've dared to have it naked .... It looks and feels amazing but I always end up slipping her back into a case.

    It is a bit of a shame to hide this phone under a cover

    Just too risky...at least for me it is.
    I try to remove and clean under the cover often to lessen chances of grit leaving divots in the back.

    A thin case is definitely a good choice to avoid scratching the back

    I originally went with a TPU case but I wanted hard metal and glass, so I figured YOLO and I am rocking the phone naked. It doesn't feel so slippery after 2 days of getting used to it and the phone feels more premium now.

    Ha. Awesome. I may go with the YOLO mentality. I had never broken a phone until my last one when I dropped my Moto X Pure from a couple of feet and cracked the screen, making it unusable.

    At least for the first three months, honor will cover any cracked screen so you are good for that. It doesn't cover scratches though

    I've been going no case on the Honor 8 since I got it. No issues here at all. Keep in mind, I'm generally very careful with my phones. When on the move always have it safely in a pocket, and while working or at home have it sitting nearby in a safe place.

    I prefer going without a case as well, perhaps that's why I'm so careful Currently on my desk: 3 phones. No cases.

    OMG I also dropped my moto x pure, it was the first phone I ever dropped. The screen looked just fine but the bottom half simply stopped reading touch inputs. I think the build quality on the pure was shoddy.

    Exactly the same thing with me! One long hairline crack--didn't look terrible--but the digitizer was ruined.

    That's weird... Normally the glass would have significant cracks before the digitizer goes

    Would love to go naked with that kind of protection ... Anyone tried it ?

    Sadly, but for best protection all phones need a case... Too bad phones are not designed With integral drop protection! (though it would add a little size/weight, should be less in an integrated phone, than when adding a protective case.) Going "naked" increases risk of damage from any drop, and even scratches from normal use...
