I finally want to settle down to a grippy yet very slim case. I was eyeng the quicksand cases but I think they're slippery. I've had the Spigen Neo-Hybrid and Diztronic Matte but they're slippery. I'm now stuck on the capdase xpose black. It's slim but also slippery.
Suggestions? Thanks.

Best case I've ever had. Slim and grippy.

Quicksand case has the best grip for a slim case. The bearmotion is the same as the non-branded eBay version.

I don't think you'll find any slim cases that have more grip than the Quicksand cases. If you're speaking of strictly slim hardcases, they're basically the best there is for grip. The texture and material make for a case that isn't slippery.

The only other option would be to move to something more tacky/sticky. That would be more like a shiny TPU case, or something rubberish. But then it is no longer very slim.

I think you should give a Quicksand case a shot. I linked to a review thread I did, and there is a lot of pictures/discussion there.

This is spot on. I liked the grip, but with no protection for the top/bottom edges, you can crack your screen on a drop with the quicksand. I also wanted slim+grip and eventually wound up happiest with an old school silicone rubber case from ebay. Go figure, smh.

I would recommend the Nillkin Frosted. There's a small lip to protect screen, it's thin, color choices, looks better than the sand cases and it's grippy.

My vote goes to the Ringke Fusion Crystal View case. It's fairly slim, clear, and the sides are a soft TPU type material. No problems with grip. http://www.amazon.com/PROTECTION-FUS...rystal+nexus+5
