I thought at first that my Slim Armor (gold colored model) was too slick, but I think that it might have had to do with the initial slickness of the plastic -- mould release agent, etc. -- and after a couple weeks carrying it around it's no longer an issue.

Do you guys think the armour part is dyed? Would the paint come off it it was?

I went with the black slim armor and I'm pretty happy with it. Much better than the neo hybrid.

I'll order mine on Monday and I'm really looking forward to test the look and feeling of the case. First impression by pictures is a very good one. Hopefully it will be.

I've been happy with the Neo Hybrid car; the back is a rubbery texture, i haven't had any grip problems or drops and I've had mine since February.
