    Didn't think this new design would be a big deal, but damn the tapered glass edges sure feel nice when swiping forward and back between web pages and whatnot

    just thought about this a second go too. i can't put a case on it cause it would ruin that feel. caseless it is!:cool:

    Yes an excellent design aspect of these new phones.

    Because of this, I've decided to not use my Spigen case. When i would swipe to the edge of the screen with the case on, I would end up bumping into the raised edges of the case surrounding the face of the phone. A no go for me.

    I really appreciate the tapered edges too, which reminds me...

    Does anybody know about grip options outside of cases? I saw somebody post up grip stickers (I guess that's what they are) a few weeks ago that went on the back of the phone so you still get the grip without the case. Now I can't remember what they're called and can't find them on google.

    I'd definitely like some more grip on the 6+.

    I love those edges. I'll never use a case because of them :)

    These actually exist???

    I was just thinking about this last night. How perfect it would be if there was a clear, think sticker that covered the back of the phone...would protect against table scratches and provide better grip.

    In thinking this way might be the way to go. Otherwise, no case for me at all as I'm truly enjoying using the 6 + the elway it was meant to be used!

    Isn't their some form of tape skateboarders use to add grip that can be cut to size ?

    Or use a bumper case.

    I love them, and it's actually one of the main reasons I'm going to use a sleeve case.

    Ya, grip tape seems like it would be way too rough. Die cut silicone stickers would be great as long as they were strong enough not to peel off.
