    Who's rocking their gs4 without a case or screen protector? I usually get cases and take them off after a few weeks so this time I didn't buy one at all.

    With a thin bezel and mainly surface glass, this device is a crack magnet without a case.

    You probably should get a case. I've got a ton body glove on mine, and that'll probably make the difference when it's eventually dropped.

    Definitely not going to have a screen protector though.

    Wow! I would be too scared to carry without a case or screen protector. However, I have done that because my accessories got here a day after my phone. Normally I order accessories before the phone just to make sure I have some type of protection on it. Never want to drop or ding it up. Hurts resale value.

    I had my note 2 naked and it was much harder to keep a hold of. I dropped it onto carpet a few times but it never took a bad spill. Plus this has gorilla glass 3.0. Should be fine.

    I hate cases they just ruin the design of the phone but yeah I'm not really worried since I had the iPhone 4 for a year without cracking the glass

    Yeah I'm running bare back as we speak!
    I did buy an extended battery which hasn't come in yet. Are there cases out there for extended battery?

    I have always went naked with all my phones and never had an issue. Some minor scratching on the back from sliding it across tables and such.

    I do worry about the lense on the S4 though because it protrudes past the case. Time will tell and I guess if the lense gets scratched I'll whine and see if I can get a warranty replacement due to a poor design ;-)

    This is the first phone I ever used a case with. Its a bit too big and slippery for me when using with 1 hand so I'm not too confident I wont stupidly drop it

    I will always have a screen protector. I do have a case, more like a back cover from Nillkin.

    I a few nights a forgot to put it back on and it felt so much better. Now I only use the case (S4 & One) when I go to work (factory).

    I do!

    I bought a case but not using it. It i s ruining the look and feel of the device. Will continue to use the device naked. Extra caution will be needed tho.

    I tried, but just can't do it. Have a spigen slim armor case and even with that I have a hard time and bad feeling putting it in my pocket and walking, makes me sick to my stomach. It's mostly because it's brand new but I find myself babying the thing even with a case and a ishieldz SP. I'm just gonna get an otterbox commuter maybe that will give me a better feeling, lol...

    And no matter how I pick up the phone, I always manage to stick my finger right in the camera cutout and right onto the lens LOL, it really is in the worst spot ever.

    Normally I don't use a case and definitely not a screen protector, but I got a deal on the S-View Case so its on there now. (Though it maybe going back soon, the top cover doesn't sit against the phone on its own.)

    Thin profile case, never a screen protector. I gave up on those a few years back.

    I just have a screen protector and no case. However, I did switch the plastic backing with an aluminum one. I'm super careful with my phones and for the past 3 years with my Blackberry Torch, I have not dropped it once. Looks brand new!

    I got a TPU case earlier today. I keep bumping the phone and for whatever reason the gs4 seems more fragile than my note 2 did. I was picking it up off my nightstand and didn't have a good grip and dropped it about 6 inches into its screen. The other day I had it out while waiting for my coffee and when they put mine up I hit the back of the phone on the counter while putting it away.

    I always go raw dog. I'd rather have a few scratches on my device than cover it up with some plastic and rubber. If I drop it and it breaks, screw it that's why I pay insurance. If the scratches get to be to much to deal with? Oh Verizon! "My phone keeps rebooting!"

    I don't like cases but last year I dropped my 3 day old Gnex while crossing the street. I vowed that when I got my next new phone I would used a case, at least for the first few weeks.

    Before the GS4 came out I bought the JKase DIABLO case. It's cheap and has a nice grip. I use it when I'm out but at home my GS4 goes naked.

    Generic case from a mall kiosk and no screen protector. Meh, no need to go all out, all cases do the same thing I find. However, gel cases are all I buy. I will never buy a hard shell because they distribute shock throughout the phone when you drop it, causing even more damage than without a case period.
