I'm rocking a thin bumper hybrid case at the moment.. (black bumper, but the back is frost clear and it's TPU i think?)
either way, I ALSO have clear full body protection from XtremeGuards... I love my things looking new
except the darn chrome plastic arounf the edges is in not so great condition on mine....Also, I usually HATE using cases, if i do, i like it to be as minimal as possible.... they spend time on design, and it pays off, i don't like hiding it under a brisk of rubber and plastic haha
ANYWAY, got side tracked... I agree with the OP, my phone feels TONS better without a case on and i really like it... until i see the wear on the shiny edges.... I also agree about it being too slippery when naked, luckily with the full body i have on it, it adds a nice feeling grip to it.
