    So I just got a case for my key 2 Le last night and I love it but I took it off just to clean the phone and man I do love the key 2 le naked. I don't want to put the case back on but I know I should! Lol.

    Anyone else buy a case and then took it off? Funny thing is I have already dropped the phone once onto tile but I got lucky..it fell flat on its face and miraculously didn't have a scratch, dent, or crack on it!

    A phone is too big of a purchase for me not to protect it. The best combo for the key2 LE i have come up with thus far is the Seidio Surface + tempered glass protector. But I'm sure most of your pocketbooks are larger than mine.

    Have a look at this case. Read about it somewhere else and have it saved for when I pick up my new LE.

    Looks perfect to show off phone but keep protected from drops, nicks, and scratches. Inexpensive, too.

    No case until I dropped it and marked up my LE. Put a black TPU case on it now. Getting the champagne or atomic next time on sale from Best Buy and will rock it naked until I drop it again.

    how do you guys not always activate the phone in your pocket with no flip case.
    my job Is a lot of movement, carrying, lifting etc and without a flip case I somehow make pocket dials etc, even with password.
    Maybe cause I don't lock it before putting in my pocket?

    anyone else?

    Never put a case on a phone, especially a BlackBerry. Defeats the entire purpose. Blackberrys are grippy enough.

    I put a case on and took it off after about 10 minutes. I like the sleek feel of the naked phone. Did put on a tempered glass protector though

    Yeah I don't know why I ever buy cases. I always buy them and end up taking them off. I have never liked the feel of any case I've bought for a keyone series phone. Nothing beats the naked keyone series phone

    Naked is fine until it ain't. It's always a game of probability combined with risk vs benefit and the depth of your pocketbook as is everything in life.

    YMMV

    I have the flip case. Great for protection but a PITA when answering and making calls.

    Have a read of "I Am Shattered" discussion. Jedd Clampett's picture of his Atomic Red, and heartbreaking description of the incident, will give you reason to reflect again on using a protector.

    Yup I have a fantastic clear gel case for my silver with tempered glass screen protector. I am not taking any more chances. This is actually the first time ever I have a case and screen protector on a phone. If usually take them off every a few days but I love the two purchases I made they show the beauty of the silver key 2 and provide full protection!

    I just got my phone yesterday and dropped it today my damage is nothing compared to yours but I have a little scuff on the top corner as well. I ordered my case the same time I ordered the phone but it's not here as of yet. This phone was not made for drops

    I picked up a new Atomic LE after my first mishap (still weeping over that 😥). Ordered new Tektide screen protectors from Amazon, which arrived the other day and I'm still having a hard time getting myself to put one on. You'd think after my first shattered mess like that I'd learn, but after going naked my entire cell phone life, I just.......

    A tempered glass protector is even more important than a case in my opinion.

    Phone would still have the naked feel, but daily wear and tear could chip the red paint over time.

    I use a clear case by CoverOn

    I'm not so concerned about chips and scratches on the body. That doesn't necessarily affect performance. But a shattered screen is a real problem as it makes the phone unusable. at least that was my experience. Hence the reason I bought the tempered glass screen protectors. I'm just struggling with putting anything on.

    I have to say, as much as I disliked my PRIV in the last 6 months I had it, that phone was tough as sh#t! I mean, I dropped it many times, even on rocks while hiking, and nothing more than a scratch on the glass. This Key2 LE is awesome, but kind of a delicate flower in comparison. First time ever that I felt compelled to add protection.

    Dropped my slate after about 2 months of owning it and have been using some super sleek cases I found on amazon. They have a rose gold one that pops, red, turquoise as well.

    Ever since I started using phone rings with the KEYone, I have gone completely naked (no screen protector either) for all my devices.

    I find the rings to be an indispensable accessory and have protected me from all accidental drops.

    Here's a pic of the wicked batman ring that I slapped on my KEY2 LE Atomic:To case or not to case-img_20190103_1755548.jpeg

    My Key2 is the best phone I've ever owned. I keep it in a flip case to protect the keyboard debris-free.
    This is the one I use. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...53.m2749.l2649
