    Well I had both and the traction is thinner then the symmetry. The traction series for some reason has a large camera cutout and allows dust the back of the case. The symetary case is good but it is thick. So it's up to you, for me I prefer tech 21 cases. Now the Apple store sells the statement series but those have leather or swade on the bottom and those peel off over time.

    The (online) Apple Store is littered with complaints about how easily the clear back of the Symmetry Series scratches

    I had the traction case for about a week and noticed the same thing with the camera opening on the back. Also started to notice some scratches on the back, but to me that wasn't a huge deal. I ended up returning it for an Apple leather case. My wife has the statement series and it did feel a little thicker than the traction. The traction also feels like it had a little better grip on the side, granted I obviously spent a lot more time with the traction case than the statement.
