Same here, I've used the bumper since I got it but recently took it off and the phone feels sooooo nice in hand without it. It's actually got way more natural grip than the bumper has, and the narrower width makes it fit in my hand better, so I'm less scared of accidentally dropping it now.

Got a screen protector on the front and the black leather dbrand skin on the back, though; my screen protector's pretty scratched so I know it's working.

Naked as the day it was born though will occasionally put the bumper on when going out.
Never used a screen protector nor case on any of my phones (bar a case on an old Ericsson so I could clip it) and device still looks brand new despite some abuse.

Been using it naked for a year now. A huge amount of abuse and dropping it on concrete and so on. Back glass has one crack going from side to side and a huge amount of scratches, front glass has one pretty big scratch and some minor scrathes, the plastic frame is a little damaged and paint has come off of it.

I used the Ringke Fusion for a few months but then I decided it was enough! Since november I've been using my N4 "naked" plus a Dbrand skin for the back. Soooo beautiful! I think our phone is the most beautiful phone these days, and those awful covers/bumpers do not give him justice!
