Are Cases and Screen Protectors Still Necessary for iPhones?

Those videos of phones surviving crazy drops are impressive! It makes you wonder if cases are even necessary anymore.

I remember shattering my old iPhone 5c with a simple fall, so the improvements are undeniable. I currently use an Otterbox Commuter with my iPhone 11 for peace of mind.

However, seeing these new phones survive brutal drops makes me question if a bulky case is still worth it. What are your thoughts on case necessity with today’s supposedly super durable phones?

It seems like I’m the only one who doesn’t use a screen protector. No problems have arisen for me. Although I’m aware that I gamble, I’m also cautious by nature.

Although I haven’t used one in over ten years, I always make sure the case I use has a ‘lip’ around the front 99.9999% of the time. If you tilt it in the light, you can see little scratches that are quite fine.

Additionally, I take care to never carry my phone and keys in the same pocket.
