Here at Macdaily, we have been talking (arguing) a lot lately about whether or not to carry around our iPhones in a case or not. Some of us enjoy protecting the iDevice, some carry as it should be, naked!
Naked as in, it sits on my desk at work or in it’s in my pocket. As is, as it was meant to be. In all of it’s simplistic glory.
I do understand that the majority of you out there are clumsy, I get that women throw their iPhones into their purses throughout the day. But as a man (I am not asking for your man card!), there is no need for a case at all. Put it in your pocket!
There are cases that serve a function, such as a wallet, credit card machines, battery extenders and many more. There are cases that are pretty, brand-able, unbreakable, waterproof and more. But there is not a case out there that “adds’ to the look of the iPhone as is. Everything available takes away from the beauty that Jon Ive and team has constructed. Even as a Star Wars fanboy, these very cool Star Wars cases don’t even tempt me.
But think about this. How many hours went into the design of your iDevice? How many people had input? How many hours went into the construction of the device, the materials researched, the colors, the size, the buttons, the placement of glass versus plastic, on and on and on.
We paid a great deal of money for this iPhone and we all should show it off. Like it was meant to be. Allow the beauty of the iPhone to speak for itself.
Don’t go and put some case from Five Below on it so it looks like crap. Keep it Naked and take better care of it!
The iPhone 4, and now 5 is just an awesome piece of technological beauty. So why would you go and mess with it and put a junky piece of plastic around it?!!
Do you case? What case do you use and why?
