    I used to only use cases for my phones; but now I use cases and screen protectors. I know what you mean - phones feel great in the hand when they're free of cases and screen protectors - but alas, since I drop my phones and bang into walls with them (I dance around in my room when I listen to music... What can I say? :P), I kinda need the extra support. My mom, on the other hand, had her Samsung Galaxy S4 for over two years; and even with a few hefty drops and bumps into things, there were barely any scratches or damages whatsoever (except for the white "paint" peeling; but that's just natural wear and tear). Are you going to keep your case/screen protector on or take them off?

    You naked folks are bold. I bet if you drop it, you will not even post about it. That same pride of a naked N7 extends to silence if dropped. Stay frosty

    One pretty deep gouge on the back. Lots of light scratches along the edges.

    I usually try and go without a case, but this phone is too slippery and the way the edges are make it a little difficult to pick up off a flat surface. I'm super careful with my phones, but I do drop them every so often and it doesn't seem like this one would take dropping onto a hard surface well. My Ringke Air case is arriving today. Its as minimalist as I can get.

    This Spigen crystal case is the best if you want it to appear naked. Protects against scratches like you've developed but is so thin it's like there's no case.

    How is it around the side edges? I got a Ringke Air case that looks like pretty much the same design, but its not snug fitting on the sides and the middle of the sides are easily slid back off with just gentle pressure.

    Thanks, but I don't do cases and I sent the Note 7 back to ATT this morning.

    Hmm... I wrote to Ringke to ask them if it was normal, but at least right now its kind of annoying. Perhaps I'll get used to it. What do you think of it?It's at least better than it was naked I suppose, I would just like the case to stay on there a little better.

    It hasn't been a big deal for me yet. I only notice it occasionally. It happens with cases sometimes on tall phones with TPU. I think since the Note has curved edges they can't as tight a fit without covering the edges of the display.

    But you trust the naked screen which has already been shown to scratch?

    I'd rather enjoy using the phone naked and save all the money I'd spend on accessories for the insurance deductible if something did ever happen.

    You mean like the total of less than $20 I spent on a minimalist case and screen protector?

    Lol right... I spent 30 bucks on 2 cases..... That will prevent me from paying a 200 dollar deductible

    You mean, like, I'm not talking about you and your case? Like, what?

    I (me, myself... I) buy one $10 case for each phone to only throw on occasionally. I'd say I've more than saved the cost of a deductible vs the average amount spent on cases and screen protectors over the life of a phone. I didn't think I'd actually need to say this, but obviously not everyone is going to fit into that category.

    Not to mention, buying cases doesn't give you immunity from phone damage. Then you're out the cost of accessories and a deductible.

    That's crazy talk. I thought we were all the same!

    No, a case doesn't negate chance of damage, but with these all glass phones I think it at least gives them a fighting chance. I hate putting cases on phones, but this one is forcing me to with its all glass slipperiness. :-( And if I did have an insurance plan and suffered some damage to the phone I'd have to decide at what point I wanted to pay the deductible to get the phone replaced. Is a small crack enough or should I wait to see if I damage it more?

    What I mean is I don't trust that any will hold up because of the curved edges. Not spending my money until one is proven. And honestly I'm not OCD about this stuff so I'm not going to go overboard anyway. So until I see a reliable screen protector that's shown to hold up more than a few days then I may try it. Until then, I'm not pressed. Not going to have this device forever. I'm already waiting on the Nexus and then galaxy s8 lol. So forgive me if I'm not urgently seeking a screen protector.
