    The g6 feels so comfortable in the hand, I hate to cover it up with a case. Anyone keeping theirs naked?

    Mine went in a case before ever turning it on. My experience with Gorilla Glass 5 (Note 7) is it scratches substantially easier than 3 and even 4. The reviews of pre-production models showed the same thing. If you dont mind scratches on the back glass then go for it but I prefer no scratches and the added protection against drops and cracks.

    This is probably the first phone the last couple years I could see going naked. I'll probably throw a case on for work though and put a glass screen protector on it. It's really a beautiful phone that feels great. One of the best feeling phones I've used.

    Exactly! GG5 is very scratch prone. I did the same thing

    This phone is too good looking to hide in the case, especially the Platinum colored on I have. I may throw a tempered glass screen protector on, but that's it.

    I usually go with a thin fit case for about 3 months, and then take it off. Just like I did with my jet black iPhone 7. Now the 7 has a bunch of scratches and scuffs on the back after I took the case off. The LG G6 black version will probably be a fingerprint magnet, but I read that they also put an oleophobic coating on the back of the consumer models and not the pre release models.

    So awesome that it feels so good in the hand! I can't wait to hold one at the store! Haha.

    I would never use a phone without a case. Paid good money for it and if it gets scratched, there is no fixing it.

    I went against my own suggestion and decided on a case and a tempered screen protector:

    LG G6 Screen Protector, Yootech [2-Pack] LG G6 Tempered Glass Screen Protector [ANTI-SCRATCH] [BUBBLE-FREE][ULTRA-CLEAR] for LG G6 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WW4WYBF...cUvbUpU5727749

    LG G6 Case, TUDIA Ultra Slim Carbon Fiber Design Lightweight [TAMM] TPU Bumper Shock Absorption Case for LG G6 (Gray) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MT7D34B...cUvbUpU5727749

    The screen protectors are a PERFECT fit, and the gray Tudia case is the perfect compliment to the Platinum color of the G6, and it's not bulky at all. Glad I changed my mind.

    I rarely use a case, but decided to try a thin one for a while, to prevent any scratches on my black G6. Went with the Spigen Thin Fit. It adds virtually no bulk to the thing, has a matte finish for grip, and fits perfectly. I am sure that I will take it off eventually, but for now I will keep it shiny and new!

    I changed my attitude over time especially when last year I dropped all three of my phones. Two was damaged and was forced to sell them. Luckily I didn't lose much.

    Naked here. Phone is too beautiful to hide it in a case. I have never used a case for any phone. But then again, have to be very careful not to drop it.

    I haven't ordered mine yet, but I've been looking at a Skin as a possibility. Both SlickWraps and dbrand have some that look pretty good. Black Leather on a Black G6 might be the way I go.

    Well the camera glass scratches extremely easy. Gorilla Glass 5 is not impressive at all.

    How's the button action on the tudia? I like the look of that one. I always look for some grip on a case. I think I had one for Nexus 6 but it was either the button action or the case was shiny and fingerprint prone and looked a little cheap.

    I might try using G6 plain, but will probably put on a rear skin at least. And definitely have a case (prefer TPU) to pop on for times I might be more worried about it.

    I normally don't get cases, previous phone was a leather case G4, but this platinum G6 is a little slippery, and I'm worried about micro-scratches in the back. Ended up with a thin clear case.

    For me it will depend on the situation or where I'm going. I've decided if I'm gonna take it naked, I'll have it covered with a dbrand skin on the back due to the Gorilla Glass 5 scratchiness. If I need a case, I'll just toss on my Spigen Ultra Hybrid. I may try the Thin Fit for a slimmer feel. But with the Ultra Hybrid, the phone is about the same size as my Note 5 naked, except it being a little thicker.

    Oh yeah, if anyone knows of a good thin leather case, I would love to get one. I loved the thin leather case when I had my iPhone 6plus. Just can't seem to find any of that quality or thinness for other phones.
