    Is anyone planning on leaving their new Razr as is and not using a case, protector, or similar?

    I absolutely love the feel and look of the phone and I'm concerned with that changing if I start adding accessories to it. Without adding insurance to the line, am I crazy?

    If I put anything on it, it will be a Zagg full body cover or something similar. I love the feel of the phone and don't want to stock it up with a thick case or something like that.

    Its got Kevlar and gorilla glass, I'm not going to put anything on it. If I do notice the screen developing any scratches then I'll break down and get a screen protector.

    So ur plan is to let the screen get scratched first, then buy the protector? Pretty logical

    Basically I will see if it develops any wear from normal use, sliding in and out of my pocket, etc. If I see anything after a few days then I'll get a screen protector. Otherwise, I won't bother. I didn't use a screen protector on my OG and it lasted me about 2 years with practically no blemishes on the screen or, for that matter, on any part of the phone. Screen protectors/cases exist to make money off of clumsy people, or people who don't know any better than to say no to the myriad of accesories the Best Buy employee tries to talk you in to.

    I hear ya. Yeah, protectors aren't for everybody, and for those like you who can keep their device in pristine condition for 2yrs a protector surely wouldn't be needed. But let's be honest, people like you are surely the minority of the population so for alot of people it's necessary and not just because they're clumsy. It's called an accident! Shyt happens. I look at a case and screen protector like insurance for my phone....most of the time it's not needed but you're sure glad you have it when you do.

    I'd like to add a skin that has matching wall paper. Not great protection but it really personalizes it especially if you use your own picture. :happy:

    Added Zagg screen protector when I bought the phone. Had one on my ERIS and even changed it 3 times onto replacement phones... YES !! I damage my phones...I work in construction and use my phone for work....concrete on fingers and all !!!!
    Looking into cases right now, but not many around yet. Like ones that are holster style so it covers front and back of the phone when in my pocket....ANY ideas ????

    I kept my original Droid in a pouch for 2 years, no snap=on case or screen protectors. It was dropped on concrete a few times and has a few nicks in the aluminum frame, glass is perfect (probably lucky there). Gonna just keep doing the same thing with my RAZR.

    After busting the screen on my original Droid twice, I'll be keeping my new Razr in a case. I have the Otterbox Defender case right now, but I'm not sure I like how big it is. I may take it back & just get the Commuter series.

    I'm going with a silicone skin. Got one on Ebay for $7 shipped. It looks like this one.

    I like these because they add grippiness and cushion the phone in a drop. Landing on the corner causes the screen to break, so this skin prevents it.

    It would have been better to have kevlar on the outside aluminum edging then the back plate. I'm not worried about the screen but those edges are going to get it dropped on concreted without a case. No screen protector but the case is going to stay on.

    Originally I was going to get this phone just to by the time until the Nexus came out. But It is so fast and sexy looking. I can't stop looking at it. when we get the ICS update it will be the same phone anyway.

    For me- I would look at that case every day that i DIDN"T need it and hate it...
    Option 1- love the naked phone 350 days a yr and take my chances a few times per yr
    Option 2- looking at a bulky, unbeautiful, ruined phone 70 times per day in a case...
    I'll take Option 1!!!
    if i paid insurance, everytime i looked at my durable phone in pristine shape (despite being abused) i would resent its pristine condition becuase i paid so much for insurance..."c'mon man! Break already! I don't wanna regret buying that insurance!"
    Figure I won't break it for at least a yr, then I can pay the same $175 to get a repair or refurb. Insurance (and cases) are like a Casino- they don't get rich cause they give away so much money. They make their money by betting on the RIGHT side of the odds. I'll follow suit.

    That's the wonderful thing about this country, we're free to make our own choices and decisions. Like they say, different strokes for different folks.
