    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.
    Ok, fair enough. I am OCD about it.

    You mean like the total of less than $20 I spent on a minimalist case and screen protector?
    It's not just the minimal cost. I buy sleek devices and I don't want to cover them up. Sure I can buy a cheap slim case. But those aren't going to provide protection from stuff that can really damage your phone. So to me there's not point. You either go all the way and get something that going to protect and major damage or no protection at all. There's no middle ground for me.

    This is my middle ground...keeps the edges protected so the corners of the Glass don't hit the floor during a drop and that's where the glass seems more vulnerable.... Also raised edges on the top and bottom of screen in the event of a face plant... . Doesnt add much bulk either

    Been rocking it naked since the 18th. Not even a micro scratch. I keep checking my wife's because she puts it in her purse with all kinds of crap and not a scratch. I'd say the concerns are massively overblown

    I've tried a few cases but keep taking them off. Had a speck case and a snap on case from Verizon. I just like it too much without a case. I did worry about stressing the frame by installing and removing cases. Was told it shouldn't be a problem

    Butt naked is the only way to go IMO. Use a simple case for work, and when working out. Once i'm done, case comes right off.

    Still naked here

    But yeah I'll start looking for a case soon !? Something in leather perhaps ?
    Samsung do a nice offical leather case, maybe not in na market. Try mobilefun.co.uk they can charge in US Currency and ship to the US.

    Just received an awesome leather sleeve from Sena so that I can use my phone naked but still have some protection in pocket or placing it on a table if I won't be using it.

    I rock mine naked and screen protectorless. I only wear a crystal clear thin ringke case at work because my hands can get filthy. No scratches here. Looks brand new.

    I was just thinking the same thing. I don't so much care if I get some light scratches on the screen of the phone that I'm going to turn back in. It'll be a good test for the GG5.

    Had a zagg HD on since I got it, no screen protector anymore. Screen feels incredibly better. No scratch worries anymore, for now.

    No case. Less shrapnel when it blows up. I wouldn't worry about a screen protector, it looks like we're all getting new notes soon anyway 😩.

    Like some of the others have mentioned, I have removed the Ghost Armor from my phone and will rock it naked until the replacement phones come in. The condition of the front and back at that point will determine if I have the film put back on the new phone. Two days in and nothing on the front or back yet.

    My Note 3 was naked for the entire time I had it (since the day it was released). My Note 7 was also naked for the first couple of weeks, but because of the all-glass body it felt a bit slippery so I bought a minimalist Spigen case just to improve the grip. So far no interference with wireless charging or NFC/Samsung Pay.

    This is my first day rockin the N7 naked and it feels so much better and looks amazing.... Although i have a clear thin case. It looks totally different without it...
    Once I get my replacement N7, I'll put the case on that one.... No need to ruin a good case if this phone catches fire.....

    How did the screen fare being naked for a few weeks?
