Anyone using their note 8 with no case or just a skin?

Tempted to use just the skin on the back, no case or bumper. Right now I'm using the DBrand grip bumper with back skin.

I'm using a red dragon skin from D Brand. Right now I'm also using a otterbox case on it too when I'm outside. It does feel great without having the extra bulk of the case though.

I was using mine without a case for a few months. Now I have a Samsung case on it. Got rid of the Otterbox when it no longer fit the phone as it was stretched out from removing it a few times.

Too thin and too slippery for me without a case. I guess a skin could help a little in the slippery dept. but I've been rocking a Neo Hybrid case since day one and for me it makes it perfect in hand as well as give it a more solid feel.

I have a Slickwrap on the back, it's in a Chinese Alcantara case and I have a Whitestone Dome glass on it. The glass was a recent addition due to some scratches that I got on my screen.

I always used to use my phone's naked but the modern Samsung designs are too thin and slippery for me so tech 21 pure clear case for me

So for most of us, the color of the phone doesn't matter, we are going to cover it up with a case anyway. I know there are clear cases, but those are fingerprint magnets which drive me nuts, and they get scratched up.

I do like the DBrand grip bumper with the wrap on the back, but they aren't even selling them to the public yet for the phones we have now, I highly doubt they will have them for the note 9 release date.

I just take my case off when I am at home. I like to enjoy the asthetics, feel, and look of the phone now and then.
Considered a Dbrand, but I would still want a case. I would think the Dbrand wouldn't be compatible with the case, maybe depends on the case.
This is what I have. I like the matte clear back.

I had a case AND a screen protector on mine! It's a 900 phone! (NOT that I paid 900 mind you ;) )

I like case, dun like my phone to be so thin and there's no way it can look nice with all the fingerprints over it anyway

I'm using a Slickwraps clear skin on the back and nothing else right now. Occasionally I will pop on a Tech 21 case, but I enjoy the phone without a case so much more.

I have about a half a dozen cases for my Note 8 that I use depending on where I will be and what I am doing. I will take the case off when at the office or just sitting at home in the evening. Anytime there is a risk of dropping, I put a case on it. It's too slippery and I would just worry about dropping it without some sort of case on it. I do like the feel of the phone though so I enjoy using it caseless when I can.

I have had want too many near misses to use this without a case.

With that said the phone is insured for quite a lot, but I'd rather not go through the drama of claiming and having to setup the phone again, lol.

Even with a DBrand skin, I don't feel right. A mate of mine has a S9+ with an aweseom camo DBrand skin, feels great but doesn't feel at all protected.
