I was in a conversation about phone cases today. I miss phone designs that didn’t require a case.
I would argue that, today, we have to use a case because most phones are not easily grippable without one. My iPhone and my Pixel are nice but, without a case, I find that picking them up from a table requires too much dexterity. What I often do is use two hands.
The Nexus 5 is one of my favourite phones ever, in large part because it was light, had great grip, and I didn’t need a case.
