    I've been w/o a case for the past few years starting with my Note 5. I found that going naked forced me to respect the phone; and I started treating the device like it was an expensive piece of equipment, which it is . When I upgraded to the Note 9 last month I kept the respect by going sans case. My wife on the other hand got a clear case for her 9. She thinks I'm nuts.

    It's all about what you perceive is in your pocket.
    Bro just dont wear gym shorts. That phone slides out like its coated in some ky.

    No pets or cords too! But I do like to use it sans case. I don't take it with me though and house is fully carpeted.

    A case that blocked Bixby from accidentally pressing would be great.
    I remember seeing somewhere that some were customising their cases to revive the bixby button part so there was less chance of catching the bixby button.

    I agree! I don't use a case or a screen protector either. They just ruin the experience for me. Just gotta be careful! My phones are always still lookin' great years later.

    Likewise. I resell my phones when I purchase new ones and get top dollar for them being in brand new pristine condition.

    Maybe someday they will make an indestructible phone that would allow clumsy oafs like me to use them without destroying them. But not today, so I too have tried the Spogen Armour case (wallet version) which is quite good but utterly transforms the look and feel of the phone. I am currently using a HianDier Note 9 Wallet Case which is surprisingly well-made (it feels like good leather) particulalry for the price. One of the issues I encounter is that the cases often interfere with wireless charging. Another is they can obstruct the fingerprint reader a bit, and also make accessing the S-Pen more diffcult. I usually wind up affixing a metal metal adhesive piece to the back of the case so it works with my magnetic car mounts. I have a Vena vCommute Wallet case on my Note 8 (back up) and it has room for two or 3 credit cards and is very sturdy and has a back-flap that covers the credit cards and conveniently has enough metal within it to make an additional metal plate unnecessary, as it just holds in place on the magnetic car moun. Vena hasn't released their Note 9 version yet.

    It's sitting in my drawer until my case arrives. Every time I take it out I have dread thoughts of dropping it.

    There is NO WAY!! I have never broken a device with or without a case, however I would never take this $1000 beauty anywhere without in being encased. And that truly means "case", not a Dbrand skin. I use SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Neo (SUPCASE makes the best cases on the market.)

    I can't stand fingerprints and smudges. The only time my phone is without a case is when I'm wiping fingerprints and dust from it or changing the case to what I feel like looking at.

    I've been using it naked since I seen this thread, feels so good in the hand (flossy) I'm really not liking my case anymore. I have a rhinoshield solid suite coming in Saturday hopefully I like that one.

    I'm using a Spigen Ultra Hybrid Matt Black case right now.

    The Rhinoshield Crashguard Bumper is on its way to me from pre order.

    No...not at this price point. I usually opt for a thin, clear case. This time out I purchased a SUPCASE Full Body Rugged with screen protector. I bought a couple of others for when I wanted to change things up.

    No chance, I've had my share of drops and most times the phone has survived because of the case. I've had a few that didn't fare so well. I try to keep it down to something like the Caseology Parallax. I decided on the Spigen Neo Hybrid for the Note 9 and really like it. I'm interested in hearing more about the RhinoShield CrashGuard Bumper Case. I may have to give it a try, I'd just like to hear from a few real world users first.

    I got my rhinoshield solid suite case today. It's decent, a little slippery though.

    So far Iam using the Otter box Symmetry Series or the Tech 21. Found my wallet case to feel a little bulky but use it when I have a suit or vest on. Actually feels good with case after Z2 Force naked for a year.

    Anyone using it without a screen protector but just a case?
    I have a case but not keen on screen protectors. But my local mall now have a stand where they can cover the screen in liquid glass, very tempted

    The SUPCASE is an excellent protective case but I found it added too much bulk and weight to the device. I ended up sending it back and am now using a Caseology Parallax which to me gives good protection without turning the Note into a pocket brick

    I always use a case and for the last 3 phones (Note 4,8 & 9) it's the Samsung protective case, but I do like to feel the bareness of it at home sometimes, it's really nice to hold

    How do you like the solidsuit so far? I've been thinking about getting one. I currently have the UAG Plasma, but would like something smaller, while still providing good drop protection if possible. I hate to hear that it is slippery though

    It's growing on me. I would still say it feels a little slippery but not too bad, I got the carbon fiber looking one.
