    Folk give me your experience about you nexus. Do you think using protective case is handy or you prefer naked nexus because it feels so good to touch the phone?

    I use a case with a beltclip because I have no desire to carry something as large as a smartphone in my pocket.

    I've used this case since I got the phone in December. I'm far too ocd to rock my Nexus naked. If I got a scratch it would drive me crazy.

    This is a nice slim, form fitting case that will give you nearly full protection on the phone. I also use the screen protector that came with the case, which is actually pretty good. When I take my case off, my phone looks like it just came out of the box. I've had several 4ft drops onto concrete/payment and the case has served it's purpose, not a single scratch! I definitely recommend it.

    I use a TPU case bought from Amazon. I only use it when I'm outside doing physical activities such as basketball, otherwise if it's just a normal day/outing I leave the case at home.

    I was standing in the Verizon store, and the rep had to go find an LTE sim, so I was just holding the device in my hand and something to me didn't feel right. It seemed slippery, the last thing I need is the chance of me dropping it. So I got an Otterbox Defender.

    No case, I carry multiple batteries with me so the thought of prying a case off to change battery seems too tedious.

    I'm using the Ringke SLIM case. I usually rock my phones naked, but I think this makes it look a lot better and barely adds any bulk. I mainly got it for Prom a few months back.. but now I use it constantly.
