Any free ballers?

I have been going back and forth about putting my Xr in a case. My old phone the Mi A1 only suffered one accident where I bumped a metal corner and it pushed the volume rocker in a bit but otherwise the phone is pristine.

So my XR is about 3 days old and because it’s glass it is a little slippery but generally I’m pretty careful with my phone. I hated having my A1 in a case so I’m still debating if I should even bother putting it in one. You spend all that time deciding on the look and colour of a phone only to throw it into a case obscuring it.

I got this case for the XR and the XS max and if you want a little bit of protection (from scratches and the back camera lens), this one does the trick and is super thin. Get the white one and it will still show the phone’s colour and detail.

It’s not one of those heavy duty ones where it should protect it from a drop but at the very least, it’s not going nude.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always put my phones in thin transparent cases. I’ve never understood this concept of spending more dollars to buy the thinnest phones only to put them into those thick cases. But looking around I have no doubt that I’m the odd one out here. Winking Face

Yeah right... I drop my phone trying to put it in my case.
Then I drop it in the case.

Free balling also works.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I hate cases and the thickness/weight they add to a phone, but I typically use a case for the first year I own a phone. After that first year I figure I don't really care if I need to replace it. But I'm not really a clumsy person, some people abuse their phones and absolutely need protection.

I always get a thin, translucent, protector.

I've seen a few ballers using their iPhones without a case. Mainly while at GoodLife.

Used to until for whatever reason I started dropping my phones.

I see a ton of phones with cracked shattered screens, and then I dont feel bad at all about my case and screen protector.

Look up the Silk Slayer case for iPhone on Amazon.
Also, get a Tempered glass screen protector. It has saved me a few times over the past 2-3 years.

I tossed my XS max in a DBRAND skin and put a screen protector on it. Mainly just protects agains scratches, but does make it alot less slippery.
