    The S5 is like a beautiful woman. I often undress it so that I can spend some quality time admiring its curves and body. It defintely feels best when my skin is in direct contact. But when it's time to go out, back on goes the stylish but necessary clothing, in this case, a Spiegen Air Cushion.

    Yeah, that was corny. The real reason is my friend got his S5 20 minutes after me on Friday and he dropped in on the asphalt Saturday morning without a case. Now mine stay in the case for at least the first few months.

    Be carful if you have the white S5. Today i carried my brand new white S5 in my jean pocket and when i took it out the back had a nice blue tint to it. I was able to clean it off with a moist cloth but if you look under the right light you can still see a hint of blue. I am now using a case.

    No case here love the feel of it without . Many of the bigger phones just feel better in the hand without . I especially like the feel of the back despite the backlash on design.

    Who needs a case on a durable plastic phone. My S3 never broke after taking a fall.

    I'll suggest investing on any shatter-proof protective screen protector like the Spigen offers. The most vulnerable part on these phones is usually the screen. Very few people actually break or crack their phone bodies... usually ends up being the screen.
    Unless you visit beaches or sandy places often, I think you can pretty much live without a case enjoying the slim look and feel of the phone as it was meant to be. (Sand causes a lot of easy scratches to the body)

    I'm getting a case for my birthday from my parents so I'll be going the next 2 weeks naked. I love the way the black S5 feels though in the hand. I'll miss it once it is covered up. I also plan on getting the wireless charging set, so that will be a whole other story lol

    I was watching one of the youtube video reviews of the S5, I kinda want to say it was PhonDog. Anyway, after using the phone for a week he was explaining his impressions of the phone (all positive), however as he was displaying the phone, I could see the chrome bezel around the camera lense was scratched all to hell! Obviously the phone wasn't in a case during the eval period, and that scratches on the bezel would drive me nuts!!

    What are you guys doing to protect the bezel, or do you just not care.

    That would drive me nuts too. That's one of the things that actually has kept me from buying the GS5. I take excellent care of my devices but that plastic chrome getting scratched up would bug me out, especially since it really looks nice.

    What's worse is when the bezel comes scratches out of the box.

    The plastic bezel or rim or whatever you want to call it (the chrome looking thing) really is the weakness of the phone, at least from a scratching or denting basis. It is the hardest to keep pristine, pretty much requiring a case. On the other hand, since it's not metal, if absorbs more shock on a vertical drop (i.e. when the phone hits on the rim), thereby providing some degree of extra screen protection. Still, I do wish it were more durable and able to handle small drops without denting. That's why I'm not caseless.

    My phone and I have been going naked since we met. We know the risks....it just feels so damn good.

    LOL ok, enough innuendo. I purchased a case via Amazon that is taking 40 days and 40 nights to get here, so I haven't had much of a choice. I do enjoy how the phone feels (I am coming from a heavy iPhone 4S), and have been recently contemplating keeping it naked. I do like the thin, streamlined feel and wonder how much bulk and weight this case (whenever it decides to show up) will add to it.

    I have always used some case or another.....the one time I took off a case, I dropped the phone.
    Murphy's Law......same with a screen protector. Took off an old one because it was getting a little gnarly....somewhere between taking the old off and putting a new one on I got scratch...unbelievable! I believe in preventative action (also have OCD....I think).

    I bought the flip convert that snaps onto the back, but it looked to masculine for me.
    Found an Incipio Duel Pro at Walmart. I'm a little worried about the camera lense too. This extends a little past the lense. Found it in tall and gray.

    I thought about no case as I like how it looks, but decided to get one. I have the white S5 and like it. Plus t mobile sold the only 5 black they had.

    Also picked up the Zagg invisible shield.

    There's a possibility he dropped it, let it move around rough objects, has debris that can be cleaned but he left it. I use a case myself but I'm still naked as I just got it today.

    That's one of the things I miss about the S5----no case required. It's easy to grip, it's durable, and it feels good in the hand. I've got a lightweight TPU matte case on my M8 and it's great, but I HAD to put a case on it. I'm sure it's not that way for everyone, but I couldn't risk it slipping out of my hand. A lot of people give the S5 a hard time for it's design, but it's got a lot of advantages.
