Opinion: less effort en phone design, more effort on case design.

Most people who don't use a case do so because they purchase a flagship, recognizable phone from a luxurious brand and they don't want to hide the logo behind a case. It is my opinion that phone manufacturers should make bland designs for the back of their phones and just include an iconic, good-looking case with it. Or sell the case for extra cash.

A great looking case can transform a cheap chinese phone into a luxurious looking product.

I don’t think that’s why most people don’t use cases. From what I have heard at least, the biggest reason to not use a case is to keep the phone slim.

The backs of a lot of modern flagships are already blank with just a logo, so the only way to go more bland is to not include a logo, which most likely isn’t going to happen.

Looks are subjective, what you find good-looking someone else probably won’t, so including a case that many people won’t use will just increase the price needlessly.

Phone manufactures are already doing that.

I hate how phones are made to break with curved screens and glass back. Even when wireless charging is not supported.

 

Many phone cases look great on the product page, but are actually shoddily made once you get them in person.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

I'm afraid that's the norm. Devices with a curved display is eye catching and it further slims down the side bezels. Glass, unfortunately has taken the role of being a premium material, but at the same time, it also allows you to get better wireless signals. You win some, you lose some.

 

Plastic might be the answer for phones, but some argue it feels cheap, and manufacturers can't charge outrageous repair prices for cracking the back cover of a device. (Ahem, Apple)

 

Marketing works, and if you even slim down the bezels with the use of reflections and what not, people will fall for it.

 

Phones aren't just a utility anymore, it's jewelry.

People who don't use cases are the people who can afford to buy a new one if it breaks. 

I never see an iPhone with a case on it, and most high-end Samsung devices are bare too. (I work at a retail store near the local college so I see a lot of devices)
