    Ok i need some help. I never buy cases for phones i don't like the bulk or the wear that they cause. But with the nexus this thing is slippery. I almost drop it daily, it slides all over the car when I'm driving. The battery cover on my og droid did a good job of making the phone stay put.

    What case is everyone else using. I want something with some grip. I got the case from Verizon with the kickstand but i hate it and it has no more grip than the phone.

    I would like a case that fits the extended battery. But it doesn't have to i will gladly remove the extended battery for a nice case.

    Thanks forum.

    +1 for Diztronic cases. Go here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_7?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=diztronic+galaxy+nexus&x=0&y=0&sprefix=diztron%2Caps%2C185. The matte cases are a bit slippery, but the gloss are pretty good if that's your issue.

    These cases are slim, provide full coverage and come with a full (edge to edge) screen protector. Even though their product description may say otherwise, their case DO fit the extended battery. Hands down the best case you can buy for the G-Nex. Also, if you have ANY issues with the case, their customer service is second to none.

    I've also been leery of the slipperiness of the Nexus. The Diztronic case looks pretty good. How thick is it? I still need the ability to slip the phone into a belt holster.

    I like these and the price. Do you have one? Most people comment on a cases protection or fit. Almost no one ever says anything about grip. Do you know if these are slick?

    There is a thread on cruzerlite in the sub forum accessory for the nexus. I have the black one and its doesn't add to much thickness to the phone and it grippy on the side with the rivets. The glossy part its grippy too. The android logo is not as grippy as the shiny glossy part.

    Thanks for the info, didn't think, i should have posted this in that forum. But it's not in my favorites on my phone. :)

    I had actually read that forum post already, but either missed it or nobody said anything about grip. Thanks for your info on your experience with it.

    I have one and to be honest without the case I couldn't hold my phone because it was so slippery. The grip on this case is epic!
