    I get to spend the last week I have with my Note 7 the way it was meant to be.... Caseless. This phone is so amazing. I'm going to miss it so much.

    Except for being too slippery, it's amazing naked.

    Kinda related: I'm thinking about doing a bit of a torture test before it goes back. Nothing huge, just testing submersion, scratching, and dropping. It's just going to be destroyed, anyway; might as well get some science out of it.

    I was kind of opposite. Though I appreciate the "pretty factor', the device was too slippery (the iPhone 7 is even worse) and the glass build IMO is ridiculous for a portable device- seems counter intuitive. To make it even more delicate, a curved device with a thin glass casing that cracks can spread to the display, even if the back or corner cracked. Gorilla Glass 5 was also an odd choice since scratches easier than GG4. Why go for more crack resistant if the thin glass you use is going to crack anyway, since too thin? Seems better to focus on scratch resistance and why others stuck with GG4.

    Samsung appears to have went more on a spec chase than practicality. GG4 would have been a better choice for consumers.

    This scratch test has been corrected, gg4 is not stronger than gg5...

    I posted this correction here too. I really wish folks would stop believing everything the internet tells them. Why would gg5 have ever been easier to scratch than gg4 anyway? I never believed that. Just glad the tester was decent enough to update his findings.

    Agree. I used mine naked for about a week. I actually made a thread titled "going naked", but it got deleted by the moderator. Guess she didn't find the humor in that Topic heading :P.

    But yes, it truly was a great phone to hold without a case. Much better than my iphone 6s plus which I went back to.

    Sorry I must have missed your post.

    I'm usually quite protective of my smartphones. I've always had a case and a screen protector and have never cracked a screen. But I did manage to crack my first Note7. I felt confident with the new GG5 (plus the water and dust proofing) that this was my chance to go naked for the first time and not have to worry about it. In the first week I had it she fell from my side pocket while getting out of the car and hit the ground (not from a great height at all) and cracked. Why did this stronger GG5 glass crack so easily? The reason is because of the curve. Technically this is not a GG5 fault. Add a curve to any glass and it's gonna be more vulnerable at the curve.

    So with my replacement Note7 I opted for a leather sleeve instead of a hard or soft case. I figured I get the best of both worlds, I can still use it naked but when not in use its protected.

    I never had a case on mine, or any of my smartphones on a day-to-day basis. I keep one handy in case I'll be doing something active, but that's it.

    Certainly the Note 7 was one of the funnest to show off. Beautiful device in any color, especially my coral blue/gold.

    I'm not going to abuse my Note 7 even though its fate is sealed. I will however think about rocking it caseless for a few days though. Best Buy hugely impressed me by getting my replacement phone here today when I ordered it with 2 day shipping yesterday morning so my S7E is here but my case from Amazon won't arrive until next week. I'm not going to risk something happening to my brand new phone that I'm now stuck with for at least a few months so I'll be sticking with my Note until my S7E case arrives.

    And people swear to me that a screen protector makes not difference to the display. Once you take it off you realize. This is why I'll never buy a screen protector again.

    Haaaaa how a lot of you guys are gonna go naked for your last days with your beloved Notes !!! Makes sense !!!!

    Not for nothing I was naked and remain naked the entire time I had both notes.

    Yeah I was often paranoid and nervous about something happen but nothing ever did

    Enjoy your time remaining with them Notes !!

    I'm abusing mine. My s7e is sitting there completely ready minus the SIM.

    Note 7 showered with me. That was cool!

    I dont get why people say its slippery. The plastic s3 was like a bar of soap. The note7 is fine.

    One thing I'm noticing carrying it caseless, I'm constantly mistyping our activating edge functions... It's frustrating.

    It's true... Experiencing a phone "naked" is pure awesomeness. I loved taking my Nexus 5 out of its cases.
