    Well? Naked or case on your Maxx HD and why?

    I've gone naked with my D2G for the past 22 months with no problems. Slight scratching on the backside, perfect gorilla glass on the front.

    If you have a case, which one did you get?

    Gel case from verizon no screen cover. Had my DROID x for 2yrs and never had a scratch on the screen. Its in my pocket with the occasional keys. I might get the otter box defender when it comes available just to check it out.

    No case. Droid X was fine for over 2 years without. Keeps it thin and smooth. People complain about a small lip on the bezel and then put a case on. (Smooth is not an advantage, though, when it's in your suit coat and slips out into the toilet like happened to a blackberry once.)

    Always without the case. I bought two phones on ebay before getting this one as an upgrade and both ebay phones came inside cases. Those cases immediately went bye bye. I hate how they change the look. They make the phone look clunky and ugly. Thanks but no thanks.

    I typically go with an otter box defender. I only have a silicone case on right now, with a screen protector...

    I certainly hope Otterbox becomes available soon.

    Driztronic is coming out with a matte tpu care today for 9 dollars that's half as thin ad the verizon tpu. I like the verizon one but matte is the way to go for no fingerprints ;)

    I have always used my Droids (D1 & D2) naked as moto/verizon made a nice belt holster I could use with the phone naked and I never had an issue. I'm unable to find a holster for my MAXX HD that doesn't require a case so I bought the moto/verizon one from their website and I like it a lot but would still prefer to be naked if they would make a proper belt holster for it :D

    I been using one like THIS and love it (actually got it for the GNex and it fit the Maxx and now Maxx HD perfectly).

    I too like my phones naked for every day use, but when I need protection I thow it in an OtterBox.

    Thanks nice find!! That's one of the few leather ones I've seen that has the ratcheting clip which it a must for me. The price is right too I'm going to pick one up and give it a try. :icon_cool:

    Yeah, I was skeptical when I grabbed it a while back, but figured for the price how can I go wrong?! For 9 bucks you can't beat it! And it functions really well ...

    <rant>I've been using PDA's for about 15 years. Cases are useless. They get in the way, make the phone larger, or uglier. Especially when you have a phone as well made as the Razr/Maxx HD there is no need for a case. You're going to get some scratches here and there but that's part of the game. What's the difference between getting the scratch on your phone or on the case if you have the case on the thing all the time anyway?!?!? The phone will last the life of your contract. Let it look as good as it was designed to! Don't waste money on a case!!!! </rant>

    A lot of people prefer naked... I like the feel of naked devices too... but its a good thing to have a 600$+ device in a case. It keeps resale value higher if the device doesn't get all nicked and scratched, and it keeps you from having to go buy another phone if you drop yours...

    I also put full body kits on my devices, military shields.. another layer of protection from scratches.. :)

    I'm with you 100%. Most cases make the phone excessively large where you can no longer fit it in the front pocket, they look ugly, and they get in the way.

    Why the rant? If you don't like cases, no problem, I need a case so it should be my decision and if it pees you off, so be it.

    For me, traveling in the desert at all times (except on leave when I'm in the high forests), I need a heavy duty case. If it isn't from dropping it, it could be due to tumbling down stone ledges, etc.

    So there is no need to get high blood pressure over someone's decision to case a phone or not.
