I love this phone; so far no problems, and it's a gorgeous thing to behold AND use.
Nice. See what I mean about the bezel reflecting the color of the LED yet? SO love that. Getting a case??? I am not. Going NAKED! Why buy a skinny phone and then make it fat with a case? or a colored phone and then covering it up? Living on the edge, baby. Hope this Gorilla Glass is as good as it was on my Droid 1.
The phone looks awesome/beautiful "nude"-why mess with that for the sakes of some protection the phone doesn' t even need in the first place? (IMO)
As for the coworkers who found your phone "too feminine", a big "LOL" and boo to them for being so horribly biased with antiquated concepts such as colors and similar stuff being related to gender-societal constructs all of them. Enjoy your phone because it is right for you, not because it's more "macho" than others.
I hate cases, too, but I think they do serve a purpose.
I have a nice chip in on the edge of my 3 week old RAZR HD. I'll get a pic.
And I have shattered the glass on 3 phones. 2 of those instances, a case would have helped.
BUT they were HTC non-Gorilla Glass phones.
Having said that:
A few years ago the job had a defective Droid 1 that we needed to break the screen on (because Assurance wouldn't replace it at the time for a bad keyboard). I should have recorded it because you would not believe what it took to crack that screen.
I slammed it on a desk, on the corner of the desk glass first and I COULD NOT BREAK IT. Stepped on it. Jumped on it. Threw it down the hall.
Nothing. Not a scratch.
Threw it off the 3rd floor balcony and finally broke it.
I trust Gorilla Glass now and wil not use a case.
As I don't pay for my phones (job) I don't care about reselling...
