Naked or Case for you phone

Do you have a case for your phone - which one?

Do you use a screen protector?

I had a UAG but my screen still cracked even though supposedly it's a really good case. I went back to the wallet case and put on a screen protector to prevent more cracking but it didn't work.

Spigen Ultra Hybrid with Kickstand.


Both Note 10+ & iPhone 11 Pro Max.


The tempered glass is from LK on Amazon.

Screen protector and a "grippy" case , the new phones are to sleeky to hold them without a case Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

Using a PIxel 2 XL, I really like the fabric cases that is sold alongside it. I would never pay $70 for it, but found a used good condition one. It's not very protective but I just LOVE the feeling and colour of it. It's really really nice.

Got an otterbox slimcase and ishieldz tempered glass from best buy.
i dropped off my previous phones many times and had to replace the tempered many times as it would crack.
now with ishieldz, i was told by a best buy employee that i can get it replaced for free if it breaks on the first year. After that, it'll be the manufacturer's.

Always have a case & Screen protector for my phone.

I've used Otterbox, UAG. Currently using Spigen case. Whatever case I can get at the lowest price with the best protection.
My opinion, spend a little $$ (insurance) to protect a phone that costs A LOT of $$$.

I hate screen protectors, but do use cases for my phone. Spigen Neo Hybrid is a common one for me, but for my Zenfone 6 I'm using a Rugged Shield case (best I can determine - a friend bought it). No Spigen or similar cases for a phone like this.

Hell, most times I've actually had scratches on a phone was from attempting to remove a glass screen protector (I buy a fair number of used phones).

Iphone 7 with a Spigen clearcase and tempered glass screen protector.

One thing I found with a case is to make sure to pop out the phone once in a while and airblast the case and iphone backing.

If you don't, some lint/debris ends up scratching the backing.

Also make sure the case on the inside is smooth.

I had a Spigen case with indented lines on the inside of the case and it messed up the iphone 6 backing with lines that you couldn't really wipe off.

I used to use Otterbox Commuter and Defender cases but in more recent years, I have discovered Spigen cases which I find are very well made. I never use screen protectors.

I'll probably always use a case of some sort. Typically something thinner like a spigen. I'll never use something huge like an OtterBox.

I always use a screen protector as well. Not just for scratches but for the oleophobic coating. They always wear off and I can't stand seeing smudges on my screen
