theres a bit more friction but nothing i would ever complain about. its gotten alot better after using it for a couple days there are two tabs on top that rub over the bottom so when they slide over the opening for the headphone jack/power button, theres a slight "stop" feel to it. again, its there, its not a big deal, and its not hurting the phone. frankly i would prefer this to the slight wobble of the screen without the case. since the tabs seem to support the screen better.
