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.

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.
