    Anyone using their note 8 with no case or just a skin?

    Tempted to use just the skin on the back, no case or bumper. Right now I'm using the DBrand grip bumper with back skin.

    I'm using a red dragon skin from D Brand. Right now I'm also using a otterbox case on it too when I'm outside. It does feel great without having the extra bulk of the case though.

    I was using mine without a case for a few months. Now I have a Samsung case on it. Got rid of the Otterbox when it no longer fit the phone as it was stretched out from removing it a few times.

    Too thin and too slippery for me without a case. I guess a skin could help a little in the slippery dept. but I've been rocking a Neo Hybrid case since day one and for me it makes it perfect in hand as well as give it a more solid feel.

    I have the red skin dragon also and that helps for grip. It just feels nicer and the edge of the phone pops without the case on it.

    I have a Slickwrap on the back, it's in a Chinese Alcantara case and I have a Whitestone Dome glass on it. The glass was a recent addition due to some scratches that I got on my screen.

    I always used to use my phone's naked but the modern Samsung designs are too thin and slippery for me so tech 21 pure clear case for me

    I actually like the feeling of it with a case better than naked and it is far too fragile a phone to use without a case

    So for most of us, the color of the phone doesn't matter, we are going to cover it up with a case anyway. I know there are clear cases, but those are fingerprint magnets which drive me nuts, and they get scratched up.

    I do like the DBrand grip bumper with the wrap on the back, but they aren't even selling them to the public yet for the phones we have now, I highly doubt they will have them for the note 9 release date.

    I just take my case off when I am at home. I like to enjoy the asthetics, feel, and look of the phone now and then.
    Considered a Dbrand, but I would still want a case. I would think the Dbrand wouldn't be compatible with the case, maybe depends on the case.
    This is what I have. I like the matte clear back.

    I have a very thin TPU case. It's something but feels almost like nothing.

    Phones do feel great without the added weight and feel... But I'm too clumsy to risk such a thing!

    I like case, dun like my phone to be so thin and there's no way it can look nice with all the fingerprints over it anyway

    I'm using a Slickwraps clear skin on the back and nothing else right now. Occasionally I will pop on a Tech 21 case, but I enjoy the phone without a case so much more.

    I have this case but the blue colored variant. I went with the blue color because the blue Note 8 was not available at launch. I am really enjoying the case.

    I have about a half a dozen cases for my Note 8 that I use depending on where I will be and what I am doing. I will take the case off when at the office or just sitting at home in the evening. Anytime there is a risk of dropping, I put a case on it. It's too slippery and I would just worry about dropping it without some sort of case on it. I do like the feel of the phone though so I enjoy using it caseless when I can.

    I have had want too many near misses to use this without a case.

    With that said the phone is insured for quite a lot, but I'd rather not go through the drama of claiming and having to setup the phone again, lol.

    Even with a DBrand skin, I don't feel right. A mate of mine has a S9+ with an aweseom camo DBrand skin, feels great but doesn't feel at all protected.

    I prefer not to use a case on any phone, but with the Note 8 I had to make an exception. I'm using a Patchworks case that is very slim but gives excellent grip.

    I use a Spigen Ultra Thin case, excellent grip and has worked very well. Had the same on the Note 5.

    I use an incipio case, had the same one on my s8+, phone is too slippery and expensive not to have it protected.

    Absolutely. That's how I feel about my Pixel 2. It's beautiful but it's too expensive and smooth to not have it protected in some form or another.

    I love the original look and feel of the phone but due to the phone getting hot on prolonged use and the fear of scratching the back or sides, I resorted to the Alcantara case. I love the feel and look of it so much, that I got two of it. I swapped it every couple of months. Got the black and grey colors. My Note 8 is black.
