just asking because the phone is so big. I didn't use either on my SGS II either and had no issues with major scratches or resale. (sold for $405 on Ebay recently) with photographed blemishes with a small scratch and dings on the body. normal wear and tear.

I don't view my phones as jewelry or rare baseball cards. Resale has always been better than if I spent $50 on cases and screen protectors I buy my phones used and don;t worry about a few blemishes. The slim form factor and smooth screen outweighs the need for a perfectly blemish free device. The larger these devices get the less I am inclined to make them even larger.

Am I alone in this?

Im not using a case or screen protector. Not too sure about a case working with the car dock and I didnt think a screen protector was necessary with gorilla glass.

in fact it could be safer - even with all my paranoia and safety precautions I happened to scratch my previous device - the glass is not sand-resistant

My SGS II was scratched as well but not bad enough to affect it's usefulness or sale. I had one scratch and I really did not baby the device and carried it in my pockets with all kinds of things. The glass scratch resistant not scratch proof. It takes a lot to scratch it though,

It really isn't UNLESS one is OCD about their device and would not be able to sleep if a blemish should occur. One of the reasons I buy used other than to save money is the phone is already marred. The first "door ding" or dent on a shiny new car or guitar is the worst. I don't buy either new either. Maybe I am more OCD than I thought

I always install screen protector and case to my mobile phones. Mostly because I prefer to keep all my device in prestine condition rather than resale value. I find it is less economical to "protect" your device than just leave it as it is. For example, I have spend $200 on different cases and screen protectors during my 1.5 years ownership of iphone 4. I doubt I sell my iphone 4 for $200 more.

But some Note's case provides a functionality in addition to protection. Those wallet case let you store credit card and cash inside so you don't have to carry addtional wallet, which is really appealing.
