+1I just never understand why people want to get something nice and then cover it up. Like seat covers in your car... you get nice seats, then cover them up so they don't get ruined... but what's the point? Are you really fully enjoying your seats if they're covered up?
Or people who buy nice cars, then don't drive them because they want to "keep the miles down". Uh... then why did you buy it? I bought my 2010 Camaro to DRIVE it, not to let it sit around while I don't use it.
Same with a phone. [For me, at least] form factor is a huge selling point. I just absolutely love the way the iPhone 4 looks on the outside. Do I want to keep it in good condition? Of course. But do I want it to look ugly? Absolutely not. I will use the phone as it was intended to be used, and be careful and mindful of how I handle it. No need to get some big ugly bumper so I can toss it around.
