    Using the Zag invisible shield all I ever run. That's just to not scratch it in my pocket

    I found the S5 a little too slippery without a case and feared it would slip out of my hands or, worse, out of my pocket. So I put an Incipio DualPro case on it, and the surface is rubbery and grippy enough that I feel more confident holding or pocketing the phone.

    Why the Incipio? I wanted to get the case immediately, rather than waiting for mail. T-Mobile store had this case. I might have looked at the Otterbox Commuter at Best Buy, but it was all packaged up and I couldn't get a feel for it. So I now have a white phone in a gray/black case. It looks fine.

    The white one is very slippery. The black one feels perfect to me. No cases for the black one. It just looks and feels perfect without one. In my opinion)

    I used my note two naked. I honestly hate cases. I'm very careful with my phones though.
    I hate otterboxes. Huge bulky ugly cases.

    I never use cases on phones and my S3 is still in perfect condition and I never had a case on it since release day. I don't understand why people buy all these expensive metal phones and then put cases on them. There are cases that make them indestructible but they add so much bulk.. I do have a cheapo case that I bought off Amazon before the release of the phone but I really like the ridges on the back of the S5 and the metal surrounding it which the case covers up.

    Does anyone know what type of glass (Gorilla Glass 3?) is used for the main screen? I would not might finding a way to protect the screen more but I am not convinced the standard screen protectors do that much for a hard fall that lands just right or just wrong depending on how you want to look at it. I like that I can a replacement back cover for cheap.

    I had originally planned on keeping my S5 naked, but I'm noticing little scratches on the outside.......seems like they're popping up outta nowhere.

    I would only use my phone naked at home. Many people frown upon public nudity.

    Milesdavis, where are the scratches popping up on your S5?

    Mine came with a huge scratch out of the box. Did anyone else's come with any defects?

    I think I could get by without a case but I don't like how it seems like it will always be laying flat on the camera screen...that should have been recessed slightly.

    I returned my S5 due to the big scratch on the bottom of the phone. Got another one with two small chips on the side, but barely noticeable,

    I really enjoy the feel of the phone in my hand and was really tempted to keep it in the nude but I don't have the best history with keeping screens intact. I bought spigen thin armor. It is a high quality well built case and mimics the feel and look of the phone. Since it fits well and is so thin I really don't miss the naked feel of my s5

    Has anyone else noticed any defects on their phone out of the box? Samsung has issues with quality control, it seems.

    I've had that issue with my Note 2 and Note 3. Never anything major but I do have a couple of small chips on my bezel from the factory. I checked it before I bought but all the phones I looked at had the same issue so I just dealt with it.

    I was going to exchange the S5 due to the small chips on the side. But I am going to keep the phone because dealing with Samsung's QC is like a gamble and I don't want to end up with something worse.

    Thank you all.

    I decided to buy a Square Trade plan and am now going naked.

    FYI I was able to get a 2-year protection plan for $69, so definitely worth it!
