In these days of mask-wearing, having gum or mints at hand is essential. Especially if you've had donairs for lunch.

Once an iphone gets past the point of mattering and you'll just get a new one when this one quits, it's actually quite nice to carry one around without the case. Really weird, nice feeling and really the way they're designed out of factory.

It's kind of hilarious how they're designed as these sleek, nice feeling slim models, but then you immediately have to put a bulky stupid case on it to not damage it. I could get used to this caseless feel, way better. I'm only doing it because it's two models old now and the half hard, half soft case broke through on the soft bottom, and I MUCH prefer it without the case.

I always use the slimmest possible case and even then it feels bulky compared to a naked phone.

I’ve always gone no case.

Over 10 years and 3 phones I have had one broken screen. I would have spent more on cases that I have broken screens.

Havenít put my phone in a case ever.

Cases strangely reminded me of when I was a kid and dad used to wear covers on his shoes. Uh, dad, why do you need to cover your feet covers?

I think a screen protector is more important. When I peel those things off it looks like that thing has survived a world war.

Yeah, after this I think I'll go full protection policy with purchase and no case. It's a whole new beautiful world!

The nice thing about the iPhone 5 era was you could put them in the whole Otterbox setup and theyíd still fit comfortably in a pocket. When they moved to the iPhone 6, the bulk was crazy.

I have a case that covers front protection but it's not too bulky, and I have a glass screen protector I get from case guru. Best. Money I've spent.

Best money I spent was handing down my previous iphone 5s and 6s' to the kids and REQUIRING them to have a closing-case and screen protection. They've now bought in having seen most of their friends destroying their respective phones, in many cases multiple times. Two years back managed to snag a Friends-n-family discount from Freedom and eldest got a new iPhone 8 w/ 10GB plan and after discounts "only" about $55/mo. Thankfully paying off the phone in the next 6 weeks. But yeah I won't be buying any new phones again for a while in an effort to keep costs down and always 1 or 2 steps BEHIND on technology, and the best way to do that is to avoid silly breakages.

That's the most Sliver thing I've read all day, but I must admit, the idea is appealing

I do think the front half of the spoon provides utility.

When you eat with a fork how much of the fork do you put in your mouth? The spork will be wider.

When eat soup what part of the spoon do you use?

If anything just throw out small spoons. They are useless.

Not even sure how end up reaching this limit where you get tired of fataing around with forks and spoons. They are pretty easy to sort and stuff.

How about a spork with a knife on the other end? Your hand will be all cut up but youíll have plenty of time to deal with that since youíre no longer sorting cutlery.

Sorry but do you use the front of a spoon eating soup? I donít believe I bend that way.
