I appreciate the feedback. I was concerned that it looked a little slick as well as scratch proneI bought this case and love it.
Have the Gunmetal/Black color choice.
If you drop it on concrete or asphalt, it will probably scratch it up, but so far (only had it for 4 days) it has held up well. It can show fingerprints, but they just wipe away.
If you are wanting something for grip, this isn't amazing. I feel more comfortable holding it than holding the phone naked, but I don't know that it feels that much less slick. I think the little bit of bulk makes it easier for me to hold on to.
I am going to have to see if my verizon store has itI bought the Incipio Dual Pro at a Verizon store and think it's an excellent, protective case without adding too much bulk. It has a soft touch finish on back - not super grippy but probably more durable than the Shine version. It's also $5 cheaper.
