Sticking with the Power Support case. Doesn't offer much drop protection but adds almost no extra bulk and protects the back from getting scratched up when I slide it around on my desk.

Gonna get the matte black 7+ i think, work phone that can double as a reader so I don't need a tablet/3rd device

When people say that the Jet Black scratches easily, do they mean scratches that expose the underlying silver aluminum color? Or just hairline scratches without any discoloration?

Wondering how deep the anodized coating is...

The phone isn't even out. So when they say anything about it - it is rehashing shit they read online. They're also likely with 17 or 50 years old.

Code:
The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process. 
Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. 
If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone.

in videos it also looks like a finger print magnet and the scratches are pretty apparent right away. not that this should stop anyone, but also seems weird to get such a distinctive look then hide it in a case....

I remember on the old iPods people used to use steel wool on the back to make it uniform because the scratches looked so bad.

The more videos of the regular Black I see online, the more I'm starting to wonder if I dun goof'd. It looks really good in its own right, too.

I used to have an iPhone 3G with the shiny plastic back and it got covered with so many hairline scratches to the point of making it look dull and.. what's the word.. I guess kinda foggy / hazy because the light would reflect on the scratches.

Get a bumper if you don't want a full case, a bumper will at least raise it up a bit so it's not sitting right on a table/desk.

This is my original plan too. Doing a lot of research on the available skins.

Did you get the 7+?

I have October 4 - 10 delivery. T-Mobile. 128 gig.

no just the normal 7. my wife is mad because she wants me to get the dual cam one. but i don't like big things in my pockets. she can get the 7+ when she upgrades and put it into her dozens of purses

The current iPhone design is way too slippery and awkward to hold to go without a case. You only get two repairs under AppleCare + and the body of the phone will get ugly fast.

I drop my phone far too much to not have a case on it. I'm not too concerned with screen cracks because for some reason I've never had one on my iPhone, but all my phones would have very worn and scratched bodies with no case.
