I just got a Verizon G3 last week and love it so far, but I'm looking for a specific type of TPU case. I received my Diztronic case today, but it's way too slippery. I'd like a case like the ZooGue case I had on my S III, one with ribbed/ridged sides to prevent it from sliding out of my hand. Does anyone know of a good quality TPU case like this? Failing that, what are some TPU cases with good grip? I'd still like something have provides good protection, but I don't want it to add too much bulk.

I've seen the Cruzerlite Bugdroid posted, but it appears to be more of a gel/transparent case and it also has smooth sides. I also found the Spigen Ultra Fit that boasts an anti-slip feel, but I don't like the fact that the top and bottom are open.

Thanks!

The cruzerlite cases are made of the same material as the diztronics, its just slightly thinner. But as you said, it does appear to be smooth on the sides.

This case might be more what you're looking for. They are super thin, and have a textured side for grip. I have the smoke and clear and they feel great.

Thanks for your reply. I might end up going with the Bugdroid then. I had (several) S-Line cases on my Thunderbolt, they are garbage. They split and fell apart every few months, but they kept sending me replacements.

This is what I'm looking for, something with sides like this (but for the G3 and black):

I'm bumping this to see if anyone knows of anything like what I'm looking for. I've looked all over and haven't found what I want.

Thanks, I actually saw that when I was looking around. I had several S-Line cases on my Thunderbolt, they were terrible quality. The seam split after a few months and they kept sending me replacements.
