Great grip. No chance for the phone to slip from your hand.
Now to be clear, I'm not 100% in love with this case, but I don't really have anything bad to say about it aside from just preference. Visually it's good looking case. The little shapes on the side are a nice touch, but they are a little rough feeling and borderline sharp. The case seems to be rather durable as well but it's this weird material that seems to feel sticky when your finger oil gets on it. Maybe I'm just a clean freak but it's just an unpleasant feeling, I'm always having to wipe it with a microfiber. I've bought Incipio cases for every phone since the iphone 4 and I plan to continue to do so, but of course each case model can be very different depending on which phone you're on. All on all it's a good case and seems to be strong enough.
This case is sturdy and seems to protect well so far. The grippy features on the side do their job as well as adding an element of design to the world of boring cases for Samsung phones. More color options would be a welcome addition to this case.
