    I will not be using a case that's the reason I bought android protect
    Except, of course, Android Protect won't cover dents and dings if you drop the phone.

    When you consider the initial cost of the protection, and the high deductible, that is an expensive proposition. I have never damaged a phone. They always die of old age...

    Well it's interesting to see how many people won't bother with a case I have always used cases but when I had an M8 I used a clear slim case so it still showed off the lovely design but all it did was trap dust etc and scratched the phone anyway so with the 6P I am just going to leave it as is in all its glory

    I like keeping the phone slim ... so I'll be rocking the ziplock bag.

    I used the M8 naked for most of the time I've had it. I just couldn't bear to put the gorgeous design in a case. I'll rock the 6P naked for a while after I get it and see how it goes.

    I only worry about how grippy it is in my hand. I don't use a case for my OnePlus One because it fits perfectly in my hand and is very grippy with the Sandstone back. I love how that phone feels.

    I went naked with my Moto X (2014) Pure Edition... first phone I ever did this with... no issues, and it still looks fantastic.

    I'm going to go with a case to start with the 6P... it's already home waiting for the phone to come... and my CC just got charged and my status changed to Processing, and I have 2 day delivery... so I'm so looking forward to my device by the end of THIS WEEK!!!

    I hate using cases as they just add bulk, I would only ever have a very thin matte case to avoid scratches but all the cases I have seen so far for the 6p are large and bulky

    Ive never used a case and I never will. A sleeve protector for when you put it in ur backback or something comes in handy. But def not a case.

    So if that happens then you "accidentally" let it get smashed glass from a good drop and claim replacement.
    $89 for the plan + $79 deductible = $168. That just seems like a lot to fix a dent...

    It's essentially a replacement at 66% off $500 retail, 70% off $549, and 74% off $649. A lot to fix a dent, sure, but if you've managed some cosmetic damage and want to run without a case from then on -- with the assurance of a 25% cost roll-back if or when the time comes -- it's a fairly straightforward way to do it.

    I would love to not use a case on the 6P myself... but I'll just quote my thoughts from the cases thread:

    We're in the same boat then. I would be very interested in a low-profile aluminum bumper-style case for the 6P, like these:

    Kommandant Nexus 5 Ultra-Thin Metal Aluminum Case (here's a review of it)
    DAYJOY Aluminum Bumper for Nexus 5

    Wireless signal interference shouldn't be an issue as long as the metal material is formed to wrap around the 6P's raised antenna bump at the top of the phone. If I ever find the time, maybe I'll 3D print one in plastic to try it out and have it produced in DMLS titanium from Shapeways or Materialise if it works out well.

    Noooo case on something this pretty. Plus I have nexus Protect (and yes that doesn't protect against bumps and scratches, but I don't care about those. This phone is with me all day every day, it's silly to expect it to be pristine after 2 years. If it's hidden behind a case then I won't even get to see it!). It's nice to know I can get it replaced in case of a catastrophic drop or crack, or if the hardware flat out fails like my N5 did after one year.

    I have never used a case on my phone except my htc one m8 (mostly because it came with one) and because it was pretty slippery. Eventually took off the case and realized that it made me like the phone way more. Can't wait to admire this phone's construction and feel in the hand.

    I'm concerned about aluminum being cold. Winter's coming.

    I'll buy a clear case from Ringe FUSION whenever they make one and make a decision to use it or not. I have one on my N6, but it was $750 out the door. The N6P will be a tad more reasonable, so I might go naked.

    I won't be using a case. Never been a fan of them.

    And putting that solid metal unibody behind a rubber/plastic case could be a crime punishable by a long stint in jail.
