    I had one for a couple days and took it back. Way too slippery, if it had some grip it would have been nice.

    I bought one for my jet black 7plus. You won't believe this but it so damn tight on the jet I thought I was gonna have to cut it to get it off. I gave it to my wife. She has a space Grey 6s plus and it fits perfect.

    I don't think its that slippery but the grip presidio obviously has a leg up.

    I think it's grippier than spiegen liquid armor

    Yikes I know what u mean about how hard it is to get the case off. Returning it too

    I've reviewed this case for the 7 Plus and both colors are slippery, but the Onyx Black is exceedingly so. Here's a comparison of the two Presidio Clear colors on a matte black 7 Plus:

    I couldn't even get mine on! I didn't want to put too much pressure on my phone Dissapointed that I had to send it back without even getting to actually try it out.

    Tried it on my Plus last night at the store. Was really tight and wasn't a fan of the look, IMO it doesn't look great with the matte black phone (but, that's just my own opinion.

    Same thing happened to me. I was worried I'd scratch my JB with the stupid case when I ripped it off.

    Ugh.

    Yeh screw this case. I returned it.

    Presidio grip / apple silicone / spiegen liquid armor

    The latter gets least love.

    The simplicity of apple case has me hooked for now

    I haven't tried Apple Silicone in a few years. Is it pretty grippy?

    Yep!

    Sometimes it feels weird and kinda gross to me when my hands are dry but in normal situations it feels nice and always grippy!

    The inside felt material is a nice touch too.

    And I like the open face bottom, with raised corners to still hopefully protect against a drop

    I think I'm sold. I was considering the Presidio Grip (we already had some at launch, but they were the same color and we worried we'd get the phones confused, so I went with the Inked and that damned thing is slippery). I really did prefer the old CandyShell Grip design. It was nice and grippy.

    The clear was horrific. It actually scared me trying to pry my JB out of it. Ugh.

    I got a Spigen Thin Armor but that thing is as slippery as a greased pig.

    So, I might just grab an Apple Silicone while I wait for BB to restock the Grip in a color I may actually use. I can get one for around half price if I wait for that. :)
