Are you brave enough to rock your phone naked (without a case)?

Chatting with the AC forums.

Whenever there's a new best Android phone on the market, we all gush about the colors and finishes and debate on which color we should get. Yet most of us inevitably put a case on our devices, and for good reason. There's nothing worse than dropping $500, $800, or $1,000 or more on a new phone and then dropping said phone onto a hard surface, destroying your beautiful new device.

As a rule of thumb, no matter how careful you may be, drops will happen. The question becomes not if it happens, but when, and what kind of surface will it fall upon, and from how high. I simply prefer a case that has edge protection for drops, and has a front lol that prevents the phone from falling directly on its face. Some protection is better than none, speaking from experience. Even my el...

I put a case on everything... cheap insurance ;) And if you get bored a case swap can make you feel like you got a new phone....kinda :p

I would say as a general precaution, having a case would be a good idea - or a screen protector. It's totally up to you, though! Many Pixel users here decide to use their Pixels case-less.
