Default Case or naked?

Just wanted to make a poll for case and what kind or no case at all. Do you want to eXPERIAnce it in all its glory or are you going to protect it with a tank-like shell or something in between. If possible, post your case/the one you're going to get here.

Currently I use a thin gel case and a polycarbonate back cover from Terrapin that I switch between depending on what I feel like carrying outside. But when I'm at home I use the phone naked, the feel of it without a case is simply fantastic. However I do use tempered glass on the front and some generic plastic on the back

Naked. The phone is too beautiful to hide.

Nillikin Tempered Glass on the front and normal plastic screen protector on the back.

That and some good phone insurance is enough for me

Is there any special screen protector for the back side of the phone,or you put a front prot to the back with the holes for camera and sensors?

You can get specific screen protectors for the back, film or tempered glass, up to you. Don't use a front screen protector on the back of this beauty of a phone, it will look terrible.

I'm personally going naked but I'm buying a case for when I travel. I trust myself not to drop my phone since I'll have a lanyard but when I travel, there's no guarantee that something might happen so I'm getting a case for times like that.

I have purchased a Casemate barely there case and a Nillkin tempered glass screen protector. Delivery is this afternoon and I'll chuck them on this evening.

The phone is beautiful but it's a slippery bugger. I've never used a screen protector on any of my other phones but I'd like to keep this pristine for as long as I can despite a case taken some of its premium feel away.

I prefer naked myself when using a premium quality phone. I don't really see the point of putting plastic to cover up a phone like this.

I think the best of both worlds is to buy a leather pouch type case to put it in when your not using it and take it out when you are.

Had the same idea as many; naked all the way, until I dropped it.
Now it's gel case, chipped corners and a whole lot of crying in the fetal position.
