Sexy Phones VS Protective Covers

It doesn’t matter what your preferred mobile OS is… Let’s be honest, they all have sexy hardware available (sometimes beauty is in the eye of the beholder). This post is not about what phone you prefer specifically, so no OS trolling.

Surely, I’m not the only one who hates having to cover the sexy hardware with a protective case, but I’m likely also not alone in still doing so.

My current cell phone has a rubber skin that covers the back and wraps around to the bezel, and I have a screen protector on the screen. While I’ll likely always continue to cover the screen (because why not?), I would love to go in the buff for the rest (yes, I’m still speaking of my phone).

Are phones still too fragile to trust without some boring, sometimes ugly piece of rubber/plastic?

What do you use and why? Have you considered NOT using a protector for the body?
