Default Running naked - no case nor pouch

just looking for your experience with running phone naked.
No case nor pouch at all.

Sure, i love my phone. I don't wan't it damaged, but i don't see any purpose of running phone 2 years in case, and then throwing it onto shelf in mint condition.
So pouch would be ideal for me, right ? NO. I hate being in public and juggleing with phone in one hand, case in another, when the phone rings.
Same applies for shooting photos. Until i pull the pouch from my pocket and then pull phone from pouch, "subject is away"

And now, your experience.
Do you run phone naked ? How does the lens stand it ?
Lens is my only concern. I don't want to end-up with damaged lens, it would be shame to not be able to use ultrapixel camera.
My camera lens is not completely hidden to the body. It's bit uneven. Near the top of the phone, it's about 1mm inside. Bottom side of lens circle is flush with metal body, or it protrudes very very slightly.

Should i start to fear and put mega-super-tank case on it ?
/People with cases, please do not reply. This thread is only for strength ones, who run their phone naked. Eventually if you damaged it and now use it with case, you are welcome /

+1 on this question! I use a case mainly to protect the lense. Worried that pulling the phone out of pockets many times a day would cause scratches since the lens glass is flush with the back. But maybe I'm too careful... So would be very interesting to hear if you guys "running naked" could share if this is working regarding the glass on the lense.

I use it naked. I made the mistake of buying an otter box case. It's massive, it totally ruins my phone experience. It makes it impossible to pull out of jeans.

So I use it naked but I put the case on to ride my bike to the gym. So far in 6 months I dropped the phone only once, luckily it was with the case on.
