Default Phone is slippery as hell

Just wanted to rant about this being the slipperiest phone I've ever had. Just dropped outside a training class for work. Thankfully I was using Spigen Slim Armor that cushioned the shock and only ended up with a knick on the case itself. I can literally grip this phone and have it slip through my hands.

If you have the slim armor on it, wouldn't it be the CASE that is slippery?

1st: Check your local supermarket. There are a lot of nice grease regulator sops available! they are nice for your hands making it soft and with good grip (This was only a joke!!)

2nd and now the serious part there are some pretty good back covers gives the phone a nice grip feelling

here are the two I bought

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3710932024...84.m1497.l2649 gives you a nice sandblast type of feeling similar to the one you get on the one plus one!!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1911997899...84.m1497.l2649 this a more plain hybrid case but also with good grip

Both are not finger print magnets as most of these cases are

Agreed, i cant believe more people aren't complaining about it, the sides and back are so slippery. The G2 was the same way. WTF?

I could understand how it is slippery. It is for me a bit but it's a lot better than my g2

Why all phones don't have a rubberish layer like the Nexus 5 or original HTC Evo 4G is beyond me.

Seems very stupid.

Lol you guys are s....p. Sorry.
Phone is not slippery. My g2 dropped many times as it was really slippery. But this one is perfect.
Oh yeah as some of you might not didnt read.
The op stated that he was using a slim armor case. SO TOTALLY STUPID RANT IF YOU ASK ME.

But who was asking me

Because if they would have rubberish layer . they would complain it feels like a cheap nexus five, not like a flagship phone!!!
