    Does it get a pocket all to itself, or does it go in the same pocket as your keys? Does it get a holster? Screen protector? case? Do you charge it every night? Clean the screen every twelve minutes?

    I just wanna see how many other people baby their phone like I do :)

    I like the question.
    Keys left pocket, phone right pocket.
    I alternate phone cases like shoes.
    I do charge my phone nightly on the charging pad.
    Constantly cleaning my screen because I like it when it looks smooth as glass and seeing the curved glass.
    I have dropped it once outside and chipped the corner.
    I love this Red Lumia 920!

    No pocket (avoid as much body radiation as possible)... Screen protector, case all the time... Clean screen whenever I see the need to... I don't see it as babying, just don't want to see a $400+ device go down the drain because of carelessness. I like to avoid headaches. :)

    like a precious baby.

    it's been breast feed directly from the wire.

    But seriously though

    I use the full wet protector to show off it's colour and a screen protector. That's about it.

    Otterbox commuter case and screen protector. It either goes in my left front pocket which has nothing else in it, or else it goes in a leather holster on my belt.

    I charge it every night.

    I try to keep it in my hand most of the time while moving around unless I really really really need to put it in my pockets, then it gets it own pockets.

    Right front pocket, screen in, top down and all by itself. No case. Charge it every nite and keep the screen clean at all times.

    Depends on the phone. If I'm carrying my iPhone its in a case in a holster. If I'm carrying the Lumia, its usually in my back pocket. No case, no screen protection, raw.

    No case, no screen protector... I tote my phone (Lumia 810) around in my backpack purse, right behind my wallet. I'll place it in my jacket pocket when I'm out and listening to music with nothing else in the pocket, not even tissues. I had it in my jeans pocket yesterday while I was out and listening to Pandora because it was warm enough that I didn't need a jacket. My phone is in great condition, no scratches or anything. I also never drop it except for maybe once on the rug in my room. I'm really good like that. lol

    Here's what I've done to all my phones.

    Tossed them like bricks or balls in the air, missed many catches, no wonder am making cellphone companies rich.
    I use my phones with oily hands, while eating chips or food (over here we eat with hands :) )
    Many a times, i pick many nose and then navigate on the phone, probably play angry birds.
    I keep many keys and coins in the same pocket I keep my phone.
    I don't apply a scratch guard, infact the first thing I do is remove a scratch guard from the phone.
    Keep it on the edge of tables, with a vibrate + ring mode active.
    Keep it on the table at hotels, a glass of water is curious to see my phone.

    Honestly, I've done NONE of those and will never do, specially picking nose and touching phone, yuck!
    But its true that over here we eat with hands and not forks/spoons, its preferred.

    I apply a good screen guard, and a jacket (if I can find one coz I use models which aren't commercially avl. here) to my phone :), I don't let anyone touch it nor do I apply greasy or oily hands to it.
    I periodically brush off the dirt on my phone.

    I keep my current phone (Xperia T), inside a pouch in my right trouser pocket, nothing else :). Xperia has a full body gadgetzshield applied.

    I am sure I must have caught a lot of attention.

    Wow, good to know I'm not alone! I keep my phone in my front right pocket whenever I'm not using it (which is almost never), and it gets a pocket all to itself. I clean the screen very often, but I'm the biggest stickler when it comes to charging.

    I charge every night of course, but I also charge the phone to full in the middle of the day, even if it has 70% or more. I do it just in case I get stuck playing asphalt or Dragons Blade. I'll need the extra battery then :)

    Oh, and I don't have a screen protector (because of gorilla glass) or a case (because the 8x is so gorgeous). I almost never drop it... or let anyone borrow it (a sad truth).

    My phone has it's own dedicated jean pocket (no keys or coins :P), but no case, holster, screen protectors or anything else. The screen doesn't need cleaning either cos it keeps clean by itself very well.

    In general I treat my phones very carefully: you won't hear a sound when I put my phone on the table for example.

    I charge the phone every night, I've tweaked the settings such that it easily lasts all day with my use. While I could get more out of it if I wanted, there's no reason cos I'll just charge it up every night so then I have "comfortable" sync settings for example during the day.

    My phone and my Surface RT are pretty much the most precious things I own, I don't really borrow them to anyone. Which sorta sucks cos sometimes people would like to take a look at how the new WPs are (even if they are very common in Finland), but I don't want to let them try it :P

    Same as the above poster. However my 920 once slid across the floor after sadly gliding out of my pocket while sitting on the floor, and now it has a huuuuuge scratch. Nothing you notice in daily use. But its there in certain angles.

    Ive always hated cases, but for my s4 im getting the viewcover, which is a great product. Basically a flipcover with a small window, and when closed the lockscreen conforms to fit said window to show the time and notifications, etc. Also it adds really no change to the form factor.
    Brilliant.

    Slai, I'll raise: I dropped my phone RIGHT out of the box, before I even touched it. I had the box upside down when I was sliding the inner box out, boom, directly on a wooden floor. Luckily it was still pristine after that.

    For someone as OCD as me about treating the phone well, it was a terrible experience :D

    I treat it just like all my previous phones.

    Treat them as if they're 3310s.
    Oddly enough, my Lumia 620 is still in pristine condition (minus the speaker, the one in front)
    It's a shame, actually. But you wouldn't notice any other fault.

    I'm very careless with my phones. I've also been known to use my phones as earthquake makers when I've got angry. However I don't allow myself to take my anger out on my technical stuff anymore. There is however a scratch on the Nokia screen from a drop. The HTC has also been dropped onto hard floor while I was running in a bar to catch up to someone, have it slide across the floor screen first then hit a table leg. My heart stopped for a moment. Thankfully, just a tiny chip on the replaceable back plate. HTC phones are tough!

    I love my HTC 7 Pro. Would be really nice if I could use it for a few more years (bought it about 1.5-2 years ago). It is rocking WP7.8 right now. Would be great to have a WP8-phone, but having an awesome QWERTY-device and not too many missing features (compared to WP8) my 7 Pro ist just perfect for me.

    I try to keep it safe (although there were a few times I let it fall...there are some scrathes, but nothing more...really nice build quality!) and use screen protectors. Had a Bugatti leather case for my previous phone, so bought one for my 7 Pro as well. The soft double-layer leather feels really nice on the phone and seems to protect it quite a bit.

    My 7 Pro sits on the awesome stand on my desk. Looks pretty nice and the display gets a perfect angle for reading incoming messages and such.

    When I'm out, my phone gets it's own jeans pocket. The front left one. Screen pointing to my leg. No keys or other stuff in the pocket... Every time I take a seat somewhere I tend to take the phone out and put it screen-down on the table (of course still in it's leather case). Having a QWERTY slider is awesome...but in situations like that it's just to big for staying in the pocket...

    Here are some pics showing my beloved phone ;)

    Love this. It made me smile.

    Phone in my front left pocket (whether its pants or a jacket). I may keep my NJTransit pass in the same pocket, but that's it. I always turn the screen into my leg to avoid anything hitting and cracking it in my pocket (this happened to me once with a precious phone). I keep my spare battery in my bag or some other pocket. I throw my phones in a good case and put on a good screen protector too.

    Keeping my phones in excellent condition allows me to sell them back for a great price and switch phones often. I also ALMOST NEVER use ANY of the accessories in the box to increase the resale value.
