Forgive me for treading on all too familiar ground-as i have seen the thread with the poll about thunderbolt fans going with a case for it or naked. Guess i just assumed the clear majority would want to cover the thing up. Yet i do get keeping it out in the open to show off! Perhaps, at least for me, i choose to likely cover up since i aint a big fan of insurance because i am pretty good with my phones. At the same time that should serve as a reason to not need a cover! lol

I got me a seidio innocase when i first had my og droid also. It was a nice case, but i never really dropped my phone. I'm an emotional guy sure, but i never would go crazy enough to throw it at someone or a wall!

Get a screen protector. Best of both worlds.

That way you keep your screen free of defects, scratches, and dings, but you don't cover up any part of your phone for, as you say, "showing it off"

If you do end up denting or scratching the back someday down the line, a replacement battery cover is only like 10 bucks on ebay or amazon

I never liked the otterbox cases-seemed to make phones way too damn big. I like the thinner ones of seidio or casemate if i did choose to get one. Never could get into screen protectors tho-they do have value but i am careful w phones and cant stand to see any peeling plastic or air bubbles.

I will go with the slimmest case I can find. I don't want to add bulk to the phone. I will also slap a screen protector on it before I even turn it on.

Cases insulate from small drops though,

Very true. It's a trade-off.

The more well protected your phone is, the less "true" experience you get from the device, its screen, etc... (let's face it, nothing feels as good as a naked screen, and the added bulk to the phone is often a negative side effect from a case)

For me, a screen protector is the perfect middle ground. But others will disagree. And I respect their opinion ;)

does anyone know for sure how much or if the camera sticks out from the back of the phone like the incredible? It seems more flush from videos and pics-could make a difference in my deciding to case it.

otterbox commuter series cases are pretty slim the defender series on other hand are huge

I've been thinking about case. And I'm currently leaning toward getting a leather case, like a Bergamo
and protect the screen instead. Good compromise, I think, over covering the phone with a plastic case.

good points blizz. I have come very close, numerous times, to the phone falling out of my lap when leaving the car issue. Too true!

I've never had a case dating back to my Treo...I have always had a screen protector and if this TB had gorilla glass, I would have thought about skipping that.
