    I never use a case. I'm pretty careful with my phones and most have held up well, however, I also tend to upgrade phones every 6 months or so and I guess that would be quick enough to minimize the damage. I do plan on keeping this N6P for a year, so I guess we will just have to see...

    I've always had using a case on my phone beat into my head, even though I'm always careful and rarely (can't say never) drop my phone. However, with as sexy as this phone is, I'm planning on rocking it naked, at least initially. The only way I think I'd get a case on this is if I find it to be too slippery in my hands.

    I'll go back and forth like I do now. 2 months off, a week or two on. Usually it takes me a while to find a case I like, except this time. Someone posted a code for this case, https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B015G...cUvbUpU4776450 , in an article so I got it for $1.99 with free shipping. Got here today and it's actually a really nice slim case.

    I'll still let that aluminum breathe 90% of the time though.

    I haven't used a case on a smartphone since my very first, and I don't see that changing since I've never had a problem before. I'll probably get some Toast, but that's it.

    So then all of you guys who won't be using a case and I am surprised how many of you there are, but I am with you on not using a case on this beauty does that also mean you won't use a screen protector either?

    i did buy a spigen case for it... i WILL use it for when i go outside for the whole day ( i work on an office)
    but i will be buying a skin.. likely a dbrand skin or slickwraps.... that should also be good protection... it worked well for my N5

    Screen protectors are the worst. I find it amazing that anybody would put up with them. They will not prevent your screen from cracking if you drop it. How could you degrade this beautiful screen by covering it up. I have never used them, and I have never gotten even one scratch on any of my phones. Just don't stick your phone in your pocket with your keys.

    Thanks that is a very liberating answer and I will go with that as I usually spend so much time reading reviews on screen protectors and faffing about trying to fit one!!!

    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.
    I agree. Lock em up and throw away the key.

    Used cases for all my previous phones but I will not be getting one for the 6P. I am thinking about getting skins from dbrand for the logo and edges.

    I wont dare use this phone without a case, and I wont let my wife even take hers out of the box until the cases come.

    Knowing her, she'll have the screen cracked before we even get it activated.

    This phone seriously is like a piece of fine jewelry: this diamond chamfered edges, the smooth glass and metal intertwined... I do hate to cover it up but just cant risk a cracked screen, even with the Nexus Protect on both our devices. In "safe" environments (on the couch, in bed, etc) I'll take the case off and marvel...

    I drop my phone about once ever two months in taking kids out of the car, it falls out of a pair of shorts with not deep enough pockets, etc. Just cant risk it.

    So far mine is caseless. I may order the one from Google though -- it looks nice.

    It's a beautiful phone and I'd love to use it without a case, but I know that I'll end up dropping it at some point. The case on my M8 has the scars to prove it.

    I usually put a case on every one of my phones mostly because Im pretty rough with them. The one time I took the case off because I broke it, the phone fell out of my pocket and cracked the corner glass. The one time! So yeah, I keep a case on everything.

    I'm currently rocking a Spigen case, and it's pretty nice. Keeps the phone thin and will protect it from my inevitable drops.

    for me only way I would never use a case is if A) money is no issue and I could care less if it got damaged and B) I had a secondary ready to use right away if it did get damaged while I wait on the new one
