    I know it has gorilla glass 2, but I'm still skeptical on how it will hold up to drops. It just seems like such a fragile phone. What do you guys think?

    Mines covered by an Otterbox defender case. Just need to clean it here and there.

    Here is a link to the scratch testes done to the phone...

    Also IMO a case can not hurt. When you get a really nice device you always want it to look its best! Plus it will keep its resale value too!

    Take the money you were going to put toward a case and put it toward a square trade warranty.

    If you are really rough with your phones or work some place where you take a few knocks, like construction or something, then it might be worth it.

    Well if you get a white one you should, if only b/c it seems to take on whatever color your pockets are.

    I was hearing Windex can help you out with this issue. I have yet to see it my self but I am also currently using the OtterBox Defender case too. So that helps too.

    I've never been a fan of otterbox. I have a speck candyshell grip right now, but the phone feels too bulky with it on IMO.

    I already have a case, but how much is a SquareTrade for the AT&T One X?

    Someone did a video drop testing the One X and when it fell nearly face first it shattered. Oddly, and and thankfully, it was still usable (my friends Evo did the same thing - shattered but was still fully functional).. If anything, get a case to protect the camera lens. Without a case the lens rests flat on the surface it's on (might not be 100% flush but it's close enough).

    Just get a screen protecter and call it a day. The new Zagg HD screen protecter is great and I don't like Zagg products but the new HD are like glass and smooth to the touch.

    I got the Otterbox defender! Just gotta clean it every 2 weeks or so! Either way if you baby your phone a screen protector is never a bad idea.

    Mine has some scratches on the body after a month of use. I have the white one, and it does not take on the color of my pockets - has stayed white. I don't care about the scratches, but the phone is slippery as hell without any sort of case.

    I also thought I didn't need a case with a form factor as sexy as the One X's, although I'm very much a phone case guy. But the two nicks I got on the side of the phone were wakeup calls. I got a matte red case afterwards. Love it ever since.

    If you don't want it to get damaged and break when it falls then I recommend getting a case.

    I thought the HOX was made from the same scratch proof materials as the lumia 900? If so with gorilla glass2 and that same material why would a case be needed? I do have the speck case on mine but I would like to not have to buy one at all. Do we put.cases on our cars lol

    I've dropped my phone once onto a grocery store floor. I watched in horror, and in slow motion as my phone landed on a corner and slide face down on the floor. I almost cried like a little girl as I picked my phone up.

    when I flipped it over, it had 0 damage. No damage to the outside shell, nor the screen. That was my 1 free drop... an hour later I had a hardshell case on it.. I would agree that the One X is sexy, but with a clear case, you can still see it's sexyness.

    I have no case on mine, and bought from BestBuy so I have the security of their Black Tie protection program for $9.99/mo. in case I drop or damage. ZERO deductible (+buy back program is definitely the way to go)

    I scratched my screen the first day with a set of keys in my pocket for only a few minutes! Right in the middle half inch long sucks.

    Can someone explain how this happens with gorilla glass 2. I see videos on YouTube with folks hammering nails in wood with other gorilla glass phones and no scratch or broken screen yet this guy puts it in his pocket and a key scratches the screen could this really not ha e gorilla glass?

    I don't know. I have a few hairline scratches on mine too. Had it for less than a week. Luckily I'm getting it replaced because of a build quality issue.

    I haven't been using a case, but I carry the phone in a completely empty pocket, never lay it face down, etc. No noticeable scratches so far. I couldn't bring myself to wrap that sleek machine and hide its form.

    I have the international HOX (love it btw) and bought a simple Gel Case for it ( Expansys). Off topic, I highly recommend Expansys.

    Never been able to use a case for longer than a day or two with any of my phones. Only broken one screen and believe it or not it was a blackberry 9900 (not an iPhone or hox). I understand why people use cases but they are just not for me
