    I think that the iphone 6 is slippery like butter.

    I have seen all types of tests on iphones but I have never seen a slippery test.

    I try my iphone 5S and it is a lot less slippery than the iphone 6.

    If someone could do a slippery test on video it could be great

    I don't need a test to know. It is slippery. I've never encased an iPhone before, but with the 6 Plus it's not even an option, it's like the thing is constantly trying to jump right out of your hands. It's the surface material, but also the thinness combined with large size makes it harder to cradle in hand.

    Apple could apply some type of anti slippery to the sides, maybe they did not know about products like this one:

    Yes, I posted this crude slippery test that you can try if you have older generations to compare to the iPhone 6/6+:

    Rest the iPhone flat on your fingers (palm out, fingers together) and shake your hand back and forth sideways.

    You'll notice that the iPhone 6/6+ slides off quite easily whereas the previous generations (except the original iPhone) don't slip very much or at all using the same movements. That's because the glass back (on the 4/4S and, to a lesser extent, on the 5/5s) and the plastic back (on the 3G/3GS) provide significantly more friction against the skin compared to full aluminum back of the iPhone 6/6+ and original iPhone. The rectangular design of the iPhone 5/5s also helps in sliding less compared to iPhone 6/6+'s rounded design.

    Steve Jobs used to be the 'slippery test.' I can't imagine him letting something like this slide. I only dropped my naked iPhone 4s two times (got it first day also) but this 6 man, it doesn't want to stay in my hand.

    I still believe the 4/S is still the best designed phone ever.

    Baloney. He designed the full metal back original iPhone and it's as slippery as the iPhone 6/6+.
