    I just wondered if anyone is not going to bother with a case on the 6P as it is a big phone and for me I am concerned that a case will make it just too big for my daily use.

    It was between the 6P and the Moto Pure/Style and if I had have got the style I wouldn't have put a case on it due to the materials used but the 6P is so lovely and maybe needs a case but then it will be too bulky won't it

    I always protect my phones and when I do order the 6P I will install a tempered glass protector but I am not sure about putting a case on it due to the overall size of the phone, so is there anyone out there who is not going to case it and if so are you bothered about scratching the body at all?

    I won't be using a case, as I've never used one for any phone I've owned, and it's mainly because I feel it adds bulk to a phone. I currently have no broken phones or cracked screens in any of my previous phones. I currently am rocking the Nexus 6 naked as well, though it does have a flat dbrand carbon fiber skin on the back, mainly for style.

    Well that's good to know as I think I won't bother with a case at all, will you put a skin on it or just not bother

    I don't want to case it either, also due to the size. I have ordered the Nexus Case however, and will play around with it and see if it adds too much size. There is also an option of adding a skin to protect from scratches and dings.

    For the 6P, I won't be putting a skin on, but I might add one for the back later if something looks cool.

    I've ordered (its despatched) that Quartz one with the weird texture on the back. Doesn't look too bulky at all from videos.

    I'm on my third Nexus 5 (at my expense) since release day due to cracked screens. I'm certain that's a design flaw, but they've cracked when in my pocket (without a case) I think due to minute flex. Current n5 is cracked too so I've an excuse for the 6p but I'm never letting go naked.

    I always used my phones naked and will again with the 6P. Maybe I'll try a skin on it this time around... Designs aren't out yet so we will see then.

    Lol what is there to dare ... Use all my phones without cases. Don't like spoiling the look and feel of the phone with ugly cases.

    I use a case about 10% of the time. Usually when it's rainy or very cold. I suspect that the same rule will hold for the Nexus 6P.

    well I said dare as it is something that will get scratched isn't it but I like the idea of not using a case myself as cases spoil the look of the phone for me.

    I'm actually thinking of a middle ground. Way back when I was a Crackberry addict I had a nice leather sleeve for my phone. That happened to have been a very good option for me and my usage/lifestyle. It offered protection when I was carrying it around, but I also had the advantages (and, yes, a little risk) of going "naked" when I was actually using the device. I'm not sure why I haven't done that with any of my phones since but, partially because of the size and partially because I like the look of the chamfered edges on this phone so much, I think I'm going to try and find something similar for it. I've seen a couple; nothing I'm in love with yet, but hoping there may be more becoming available before too long.

    One of my favorite BlackBerry accessories. I miss mine. When my 6p comes I will also go naked with it but will be possibly going to the priv and may go back with a leather sheath for that for nostalgia

    I'll rock a case when I am working out and listening to music on Bluetooth headphones. Other than that I plan on going naked. Maybe a d brand skin if they have a nice design.

    I can't think of a time I've used a case on a phone. I remember buying one once but I ditched it not long after.
    I love the replies from salespeople at the phone stores when I tell that to them while they're trying to sell me a case and tell me about ask the horrible things that can happen if I don't buy one.

    I don't use a case on my phone for day to day activity so no case on the 6P. However I do use a case when I take my phone on bike rides or while at the gym. For the first few weeks I will use the phone without and then revert to my normal practice....cycling with case on...gym.when doing cardio or something involving a lot of movement - case on.

    I will be. I rarely have my phone in my pocket when I'm at work so I usually have it on the tables and tools ends up on the table.

    There only time I use a case is when I go running in the morning, because there is no way to adhere the phone to my arm while running.

    My son had that happen with the G2. Maybe an LG problem. Luckily we had just gotten it and complained it came that way. Maybe such thin bezels hurt in that way.

    I'm thinking I likely will use a case with this phone but I'm waiting until I have my phone, and have a chance to see how it feels in my hand, before deciding. The reviews I'm seeing are that the phone is rather slick (a bit like the iPhone that way) and so I'll likely use a slim case for better grip.

    Just a simple belt case but nothing on the phone.

    No case, if I need some grip I will add a matte skin. Since its narrower than the N6 I have now it shouldn't be an issue with grip, will see whenever I receive the phone!

    Well I'm going to be the oddity here - I always have cases on my devices. Why? Because it gives me piece-of-mind (and I won't feel as bad every time it drops to the ground). Cases have saved my devices from damage that would've otherwise killed them - I'm a clumsy person. So yeah, whilst I will be getting a case for the 6P, it won't be a bulky one :P
