One of the reasons I’m looking at getting a 12 Mini is returning back to the days when I didn’t even think about using a case. On my 11 Pro I’m without a case probably 80% of the time but I do find the matte texture on the back a bit hard to keep hold of sometimes. I hate, hate, hate cases…
My favourite iPhones are the jet black iPhone 7 and 5 – neither of these needed a case and felt better for it.
The screen on the 11 Pro is already too big for me and when I adjust my hand to reach a corner is when I feel I’m going to drop it.
I’m fully intending to use a 12 Mini without a case and see how it feels in day to day use.
