As a gadget lover I am overly protective about all of my gadgets and the way they look. My phones always have a front and back protector plus a case. Any other gadget that I own will always have cases and screen protectors.
Talking to my friends or watching how they handle their gadgets differ greatly, some people just throw their gadgets aroud and will not use a case or screen protector leaving it as the designer wanted it. I cannot shake the fact that some of these gadgets are worth almost $1000 dollars and should be protected.
If you are on a contract in Australia they are usually 24 months which is a long time to go with a broken or damaged phone.
I am interested to see if I am being overly pedantic so please fill out the poll on the site or let me know in the comments below to let me know how you look after your gadgets.
