iPhone 5 does not need a Case or Bumper

Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 last week. The look is almost identical to the iPhone 4S, but there are actually major changes. The back side of the iPhone 5 is not glass anymore and the two antennas are separated from the case on top and bottom. The front glass is now made from Gorilla Glass 2. The iPhone 5 seems not to need protection anymore through a case or those stick on plastic sheets.

I am all for using the iPhone without case. I would have used the iPhone 4S also without case. There is only one issue why I used a iPhone 4S case. Without a case the iPhone 4S is slipping way to easily out of my jeans back pocket. This is a no go. Now the question is how slippery is the iPhone 5? It is possible that the aluminum backside provides more friction. If it does, I would indeed not need case for the iPhone 5.

Will you wrap your iPhone 5 in a case?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
