My first cell phone was the early 2000's (yes, I resisted for a long time). I was talked into a case and screen protector but it made the phone feel like a brick in my pocket. I took the case off. I had to replace that phone because technology made it absolete. To this day it is my alarm clock. I am currently on just my 3rd phone and have never used a case or screen protector.A naked phone.
A phone with no screen protector or case is sexy as ****.
If I was a billionaire I'd carry all my phones naked.
Unfortunately I'm not a billionaire, so I have to use a strong screen protector and case.
