    Naked Phone

    Whether you use Android or iPhone or even something else, could you go without a case?

    I love the feel of it that way and with the THP Pop Socket the safety feels like it would be there, but with travel I am honestly not sure it’s a good idea.

    I don't trust myself. I need a case to protect it from my clumsiness.

    I go caseless. I've had my S9 for a year now and it's beat to crap, but I like it that way.

    I did this for a year or two, until I dropped my phone and had to use AppleCare. I went back to a smaller phone, so I don't mind having a case on it now.

    I've had an otter box since the day I bought my iphone. Never a cracked screen or broken phone and it has seen a lot of abuse!

    I use smaller also. I also order the thinnest case possible.

    With the price of phones these days, I just can’t do it. I tend to use a more minimalist case, but it still adds bulk. I love the feel of the phone “naked” but it also gives me anxiety.

    When I was using the 8+, the difference between no case and with a case was astounding. With the XS, it's not as big. I LOVED the big phone without a case. with a popsocket and a screen protector, that might be a good enough hedge - less likely to drop it with the popsocket, and protection on the screen side.

    I prefer to go naked. However, since I'm basically leasing my phone (and can upgrade once a month if I wanted), I have to keep my phone in good shape to turn them back in.
