Going naked on my iPhone 4S, black. (Going without a case)

Opinions?

My phone came with a silicone skin which I only used for a few weeks before going naked. I was worried about scratches etc and had urges to put it back on but that passed after a few days. Now i don't think i could ever go back to using a skin/case...

Son in law has smashed both sides twice and has his back in a cover.

Will be fine, used to use my work one naked too. I think all phones should go naked

If you are worried about possibly shattering the back, go to ebay search iPhone 4S back housing cover

You can get various colours, which are easy as to install too. Basically two T5(or T6), then slide the back cover down.

Only cost around $6NZD including shipping

I have a Gelaskin on mine, which is a compromise between a case and going naked. I have managed to put a small chip in the edge of the glass on the top left corner. It's barely noticeable by eye although every time my finger runs over it it reminds me. :-\

With any phone these days you have to weight up the risks. A case definately ruins the look of any phone, but with any device with gorilla glass it only takes a single drop onto a hard surface and the odds are probably well over 90% that the gorilla glass will completely shatter.

I never use front protection on a device. It's only ever the back that will get scuffed on my gear so I'm considering getting a Leaf for any new iPhone I get. I used a really thin clip on shell for my 3GS for years, picked it up in Singapore and have never seen anything as perfect as it since. But it recently snapped so my work iPhone is sans protection now too. I've noticed that in the 3 months or so since I stopped using anything on it, it's had absolutely no damage or markings at all.
