When I got my first Android phone, I went all-out on protecting it: I used a Case-Mate Barely There case, and a decent screen protector. For a short while, I even used a little pouch to carry it around in!
Today, I don’t bother with any of that. I stopped keeping any keys or spare change in the same pocket as my phone and the screen hasn’t got scratched yet. I also (fortunately) have not dropped it – at least, not hard enough to break anything.
I’m considering getting a cover for my Nexus 7, though, as I can see myself wanting to just stuff it in my bag. It’s rumoured that the tablet will support an iPad-style smart cover – although I’m not sure the evidence in the video that started the rumour is particularly compelling.
