    So I am sure this has been discussed but I cannot figure out how to search for it on Tapatalk. I am curious if anyone is using their S8/S8+ naked (the phone...not you lol). If so, how's it holding up? I am personally using a UAG Pathfinder and a Bodyguards tempered glass.

    I want to but the fingerprints would bother me and also I wouldn't want to drop it and have it get messed up .

    I went naked for about a week when I got it. I never had cases on any of my phones until the S7 Edge. I dropped it once on pavement and scratched the FPS a bit so I decided to start rocking a slim case. Now I always get a very slim clear case. I rock it naked around the house here and there but I like the slim case. Helps locate the FPS and provides a bit of protection without being bulky and taking away from the feel of the phone.

    RhinoShield Bumper case, screen naked and back naked. You can drop the S8+ cause it's going to be safe.

    I hate the all glass construction, no way I will run this phone without a case as I have seen people break their phone even WITH A CASE. In the past I refused to slap a case on a phone.

    I use an Otterbox Defender primarily but I also have a clear Otterbox Symmetry.

    If you rock this phone without protection eventually its going to get scratches. You're likely to get spider web cracking on the back of the device as well if it's dropped on a hard surface. Probably wouldn't bother some people but it bothers me. I also have one of those Zagg invisible shield screen protectors.

    They make these things to be pretty yet also practical for their hardware quirks like wireless charging for instance; however, the phone isn't durable enough for daily use without protection unless you are extra careful with it.

    Naked at home and work (office environment). Spigen Rugged Armor everywhere else. I have dbrand skin on the back as I hate back fingerprints. No screen protector.

    I wish I can go naked all the time but my phone will not last much with no case when I'm out and about.

    I have several cases including the rhinoshield bumper, which is about as minimal as you can get. Usually I'll rock a thin i-blaison case, clear, or spigen. I also have the otterbox symmetry clear and black, but I do not use a screen protector at all. Really wish I could go naked but that's just not a wise thing to do, nor with this slippery, fragile phone.

    Around the house...yup, but as soon as I get up from where I'm sitting or laying, i slide on the slim case; don't want to take any chances.

    I alternate between my Defender, Unicorn Supcazs, and Caseology clear case w/black protective bumper. Haven't cracked a phone in years, but have dropped this one and previous phones a few times, all with a case on thankfully. This has no damage at all jist. A few very small scratches onscreen, not noticeable. I don't like the screen protectors so the screens always naked

    I have Dbrand carbon fiber skin on the back. 2 days now. I put the gadget guard black ice liquid edition on the entire phone. I place the phone in a Sena sleeve to keep it in my front pants pocket. So that's as naked as I get.

    The S8+ is just too expensive to go naked. I also feel that it is slippery and if I dropped and broke my $900 phone because it was naked I would kill myself.

    I am wrestling with the idea of putting this baby in an OtterBox. I don't like the bulk but the protection is key for me

    Does the wireless charging work through a Otter Box Defender?

    I'm using the Samsung Alcantara case, which I absolutely love. The cutout for the Touch ID makes it near impossible to hit the camera by mistake. That's a big bonus.

    Naked it's just too darned slippery. And the fingerprints... yikes!

    I sometimes go naked at home (the phone, not me). Even then I usually restrict this to times when I'm sitting in one place. Even here there are ways to drop your phone and cause cosmetic damage, so I'd say it's very rare when my phone goes unprotected.

    Of course the downside is that I have yet to find a case-friendly tempered glass screen protector that works well. I've tried three different models, and after burning through a total of $25, every one I found had that nasty glue on the sides that (non-permanently) ruins the display on the sides. Oh well...

    How is the Supcase? I have the hybrid but I'm tempted with the full protection version.

    You should try the liauid skin by skinomi. It's not tempered glass but it gives it full screen coverage. I assume it will protect it from a drop in terms of preserving the screen from cracking as well. I've been using skinomi skins for a long time and I've never had a screen to crack on me before even after drops. I get mine off Amazon and they aren't expensive. Not prone to fingerprints either. Very clear and works well. I looked into a tempered glass but I've yet to read one good review on one. So I go the liquid skin route.

    I've gone with the dbrand dragon skin on the back, full-screen Ghost Armor on the front. It may not be naked, but it feels that way. A better grip and no worries about scratching up the back.

    How do you like that dragon skin? What colors do they offer that in? I just found out about the dragon. Do they offer in Red?

    I love it. This is the only colour of the dragon (at least at the moment). But I wanted the stealth look for my black S8+, so that wasn't an issue for me.

    Just a question, I assure you that my intention isn't to start a controversial here. This kind of protection you use at your phone can take a long fall? Weeks ago my wife was in Intensive Care Unit at the hospital. I was so concerned and nervous that my S8+ and a pack of Marlboro I took off my pocket went, both of them, seven feet down. My phone was dress with a RhinoShield Bumper case and was and is in perfect condition.

    No problem! That far of a drop I'm not sure. I have a skinomi liquid skin full coverage for the screen and the dbrand skin on the back. I assume the liauid skin would protect my front screen from a normal drop height but I'm unsure if the dbrand would fully protect the back as it's more for display and grip. Right now I do have a case on it. I'll post a pic. I go back and forth but most of the time when I'm out and about I typically will throw my case on. This case to me is a little thick but I have two more cases on the way that I think are just a tad slimmer. I have a Red one coming and a Blue. Both are the exact same case. One will arrive on Monday. Here's what I have on mine right now.
