I got my S2 in early May 2011, never had a case on it, dropped it plenty of times from hand height onto a wooden floor, dropped it 3 or 4 times from car seat height onto concrete, and once into a sink full of water.. all I have is one scratch on the top-left casing of the phone and a completely scratch free screen.. it's a pretty hard-wearing phone. Mind you I've always been careful to not put it in the same pocket as keys/coins

I've had my SGS II since 05.2011. Never have I used any type of protection on it, I carry the phone i my jeans pocket and the only thing I had to do from time to time is to clean out the lint from USB port

i have had my S2 since june 3rd 2011. I have had the SGP Ultra Silke Soul Black Case on it for the first 2-3 months. however, after getting the 2000mAh extended battery, i removed the case and since then have been using it without any case.

the screen does not have any scratches(neither does the screen guard), however, the silver plastic around the screen has had a small dent near the top right of the phone due to it falling from my hands onto concrete(ouch!)

Since then, i am using the standard samsung flip pouch with the phone!

Had mine since June with no screen protector or case.

Dropped it from a great height when put my jeans over the stairs bannister (With phone still in pocket)

It bounced off the railing landed on a radiator bounced onto a table full of crap then landed on the floor. I thoght the screen would be smashed and the phone would be covered in scratches and bumps.

Ended up with a little mark on the top trim and a chip out of the top front speaker!! impressed with how durable it is

got my S2 7 months ago.

I haven't used any cases or screenprotectors...but it still looks as awesome as on day 1 w/e scratches etc.

Putting le poor beauty in a case is like making Rihanna wear used toiletpaper on stage...imo

Cool thread. I searched up 's2 is ugly with case' and this came up. I bought a case for the phone, but I can't get used to the look! It hides the true beauty of the phone, so from reading this thread, I have decided...

My S2 will remain naked for the rest of its life!

I won't be keeping it for long anyway, till the S3 comes out so I don't really care atm.

Lovely thread to boost my confidence, thanks!

I haven't ever dropped my phone since I bought it in the summer but it would still be nice to know this.

Well, no. I started using it without them as they're ugly, I started dropping it all the time. But; I will not use a case nor a screen protector:P

Another opinion here...
Got my SGS2 from April and used without a case all the time, no scratches, only a little bit of paint at the bottom has come off. In the pocket I carry it in a pouch though.

just want to add that.. scratches doesnt always come from dropping... i use my SGS2 with screen protector and metal bumper case (just for the feel/look XD) so for about the case as i mentioned it just for the look.. i have big hand (i think) so the SGS2 feels really small (like i am holding onto nothing >.>) so i bought the taurus metal bumper case... since i have 100% confident that i wont ever drop it (never dropped a phone in my life and owned maybe 9?) anyhow enough of side story... i have screen protector from zagg if i remember correctly... and well one day i was picking up my little brother from kindergarten and i dont know maybe some sand went into my pocket.. later on when i took my SGS2 out the screen was mess up >.> the protector is well placed and didnt slide off or anything.... but the protector looked like someone had rubbed a sandpaper on it for long long time... later on i took the protector off and the screen was unscratched (thank god) and bought a replacement

so yea... depending on situation your pocket might as well be the screen killer
