    Uh, no. I never use a phone naked. This phone will shatter if it comes in contact with cement or a hard floor.

    Your OP is giving me anxiety.

    I have a clear spigen case but I'm considering going naked because it feels so nice. My only concern is fingerprints. I could care less about dropping it... My $10 spigen you case isn't going to save it and I have insurance anyway.

    I don't normally use a case but I have ordered a Neo Hybrid from Spigen for the S7 Edge. The phone is too thin, rounded and slippery for my taste and fingerprints are a constant battle. I considered a skin and may get one if the case doesn't live up to expectations.

    Dbrand leather effect skin for me, should be arriving soon. Thought even if I did drop it the skin will cover up the cracks for me. Can't believe one of these thin cases will provide that much protection as well.

    That is how I am thinking. My thin clear TPU case is not really going to prevent much damage anyway.

    Also, despite having tiny hands I was bumping the Edge and other places 90% of the time. A case allows me to have ergonomic hand holding with the phone so I'm not touching everything.

    I have been going back and forth on getting a case. At first, I thought no way am I going to cover any part of this phone.

    But, then is slipped out of my pocket a couple of times and I thought I had better get a case.

    However, coming from an S4, I have learned to be careful about what pockets I put my larger, slippery S7E phone in.

    To your point about hand size, I have large hands, so holding and using my S7E with one hand without unwanted screen taps, as well as it not slipping from my hand, is not an issue for me.

    Now I'm curious if your hand size is part of your consideration whether or not you get a case?

    My first consideration was I launched the phone across my office at work and it smacked the hardwood like a champion. I panicked and kept it on the desk all night.

    Then I noticed using it one handed I kept bumping something or the other while texting etc. So I solidified my choice in going with a case.

    I went with my go to, Urban Armor Gear in Ice (clear and black). Best decision ever. I'll post up a pic later.

    Ergonomics changed completely and for the better. I still nudge it sometimes, but I think it's cause I'm getting used to the curved screen, but much much better and UAG makes it look too damn good.

    Can't go naked so I bought the Samsung clear case for normal day to day use. It's minimal and keeps the natural feel of the edge. I'm also going to get the UAG case for use while camping or on the motorcycle. http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=KPhFKH_A

    I'm always naked, on every phone I own for the most part. Millions of dollars is spent to make these things look and feel pretty. I want to use it as the designers intended. I will buy insurance just in case and enjoy the phone in all it's naked, slippery glory.
    Same here. That's what insurance is for!

    Without a case, I am constantly accidentally activating apps along the side of the phone, especially when I pick it up. The fatal flaw with edge to edge screens like the S7 Edge.

    As much as I would love to see it naked all the time because they are sure sexy I would worry every moment of the day I had my s6 edge+ outside of my pocket. I worry now with a case on because of the curved sides. Good for you being able to go naked but I would personally rather not take the risk.

    Personally, even I don't like to use any case for my phone, but just to be over-protective, and if I get a case which looks stylish & compact, I'd use it.

    Phone looks very nice but feels very slippery in my hands ,especially when am on the train . i didnt want to get a case but this phone looks too nice to have a dent or scratch

    Just ordered a Case Neo Hybrid Crystal , hoping it doesn't make the phone feel too big. dont think i'll get a screen protector though

    i have that case right now, it's pretty nice, but i'm debating if i want to keep using it. i really like the feel of phones without a case.

    the lip on the top and bottom of the case kind of bother me. but it is a nice case.

    That lip at the top and bottom is there so that yo can place the phone upside down without the display touching the surface. It also lets the people edge panel function when you get a call.

    Thought about it but no way. It's beautiful until that 1 time you accidently drop it. That's not worth $200+ insurance. I have the tech 21 case and is great.
    And then insurance might not have it in stock, even if you were willing to pay the deductible...

    Sometimes I do go caseless but it's either at work, where I know it will be just sitting on the desk, or for events where I know I won't be moving around too much.

    Btw, I went with the Spigen liquid crystal case and you can still show off the phone this way.

    I took my Skinomi screen protector off today. It was rubbery feeling and was actually covering too much of the screen- when I put the cases on the phone, the edges peeled up at top and bottom. #fail. Trying to find a good one now....
