    To protect or not to protect your 920, that is the question. If so, how much protection??? I'm still on the fence myself (naked at the moment), so I thought this poll would give a good overall picture of what 920 owners have decided to do with their phones.

    Mine is only protected by a dedicated pocket for my phone and taking good care of my stuff in general. Never had any protection on my phones, never broke any of my phones either.

    Naked. I always keep my phones naked. Only phone i have ever had any protection was iPhone 4, mainly because of how my 2G iPod touch looked back then. ;)

    I have owned all of the poly unibodies Nokia has released other than Lumia 900 (N9, Lumia 800 and Lumia 920) and non of have even a mark on the body of the phone. Imo if you want protection for your Lumia 920 you could get screen protector, but other than that i can't really find a reason to buy case.

    Granted i'm not tied to any kind of contracts and own other phones so my basis might be a bit different.

    I keep mine in a pouch to keep from inadvertent scratches when going into my pocket. Other then that its naked. I am done with surrounding my phone with 50 layers of ugly casing material. I got done with that when I dumped my iPhone 4.

    Mine is in an otterbox defender but i'm going to be taking it back, just too large. I want a Siedio active case but one is not out yet. Will probably settle for otterbox commuter.
    After a 6" fall that dented 2 corners pretty badly and scratched the heck out of the back, i'm not using no case on mine anymore.

    The back protection I have is clear so you still see cover and grip is better.

    I put a full body Ghost Armor on mine. Clear. I had it put on at the mall and he did a good job. If you just look at the phone you can't see it. I thought I would go with nothing but I don't treat my phones too well, I throw them down anywhere, drop them in my purse or pocket, etc. while I doubt I would scratch the case I feel better about having something on it so I don't even think about it.

    A big plus is now I can actually lay my phone on my hand and tilt my hand about 85 degrees and it doesn't slid off so even though the skin isn't 'sticky' it does add a bit of grip. Hard to explain but it did feel like I might drop it at times. May all bein my mind but now I feel like I have a better hold. One more added plus, fewer fingerprints.

    Thing i find more worrisome is that some would find that weird. ;)
    I mean before iPhone it was the norm to carry phones without protection. It seems like especially in North America the need for a case has become the norm. Though that could also be related to the carrier business model where everybody signs for a 2 year contracts and no unlocked market to speak of.

    i'm considering screen protection b/c of all the scratch complaints. i'm just not big on the rubbery feel, love the screen as is.. I'm not to worried about the back of the phone, i think it's pretty scratch resistant. Now obviously if you drop it on concrete, you might have some issues with damaged corners and such, so i understand people wanting a case for that reason... ahhh, decisions....

    screen protectors and cases have become the norm here in the states... i know it wasn't that way a few years back, but i guess since touch screens came out, people want to protect the beautiful display more than anything else. Cases are so slim now, i think people believe they are adding protection while not losing too many style points. Plus, with cases your phone becomes unique =)

    I have a black glossy TPU case from amazon, fits great and much more grippy. Went naked for few days but couldn't risk it. No screen protector yet but I have one ready. I love the feel of the curved glass! But too OCD about screen scratches to risk that one either;-)

    I let mine go el naturale. I don't see the point in buying a phone because of the way it looks then covering it with a case.

    I'm not too worried about real damage. I have insurance for that. But hairline scratches on the screen would really bug me. Hence the screen protector. Went the full cover just because... The screen protector is really clear, can't even see it with the screen off so no degrading. And the feel isn't rubbery. I used Zagg shields for years and I now much prefer Ghost (but I read Zagg is better that they used to be). The feel of sliding my finger on the screen is just the slightest bit different but not enough to bother. I'm quite happy with my decision. I can't use a case. While the size and wright doesn't bother me I can't see adding to it. I want to be able to use and enjoy my phone without worry but also without adding a lot of bulk. The skin gives me that.

    This is the first time I have not used a screen protector or case on my phone. I'm two weeks in without a scratch and I love the way it looks.

    Currently going naked. I tried using Clear Coat full body, but the edges of the clear coat attracted so much lint I took it off. I did order an otter box commuter for times where I might want a little extra protection. Otherwise I'm enjoying my naked phone. It's a little slippery at times, but ok.

    I dont have the 920 but I have a 900. I bought the gel case because it was thin and would protect the phone and wouldnt add any bulk to it. The one issue I had with it was that it would attract lint (black one) and get inside the case and sort of temporary stained the rear of my phone. Since that Ive not had a case.

    The biggest gripe of going nude is that the Lumia 900 seems to be slippery and couple that with me (i seem to have greasy hands) and that could be a poor combination. The other issue is that with black you see the build of grease moreso than other colors. My co-worker got the glossy white Lumia and its even more slippery than mine.

    If I were to get a 920 I would go natrual but with the caveat of having to get a color case. I especially like the matte Cyan.

    You should have added an additional vote item. Pocket pouch. I voted "Only Case" but that makes me think of those Otterbox or equivalents that you snap around your phone.

    While I do have insurance I've always put a case and screen protector on all my devices. Accidents can still happen as much as anyone tries to be as careful as they can, I just try to avoid anything possibly happening. I have the Speck candyshell white with black grip case and a Xtreme Guard screen protector on the way. Love the look and style of the case on my white 920:)

    Mine is naked as well. One of the reasons I bought the 920 is for its superb build quality. I have the matte black version, and couldn't be happier. I love the matte finish because it not only looks nice but it also hides finger smudges.

    I just keep it in my pocket with nothing else (I did that with my old iPhone 3gs).

    Personally I like the idea of using phones without cases as to be able to appreciate the design of the phone. Putting a case on it is like covering furniture with plastic imo.
