    Default Re: OEM Bumper vs Rearth Ringke Slim vs Nillkin Hard Case Review

    I just got a chance to try the OEM bumper and the Ringke slim and concur with the OP's comments. The bumper makes the phone a little too wide for my tastes although the aesthetics are excellent. On the other hand the Ringke slim is less protection as it is quite thin but looks really nice; however it covers up the back. I think I will just keep the phone as is without protection. If anyone wants the set of bumper and slim lmk.

    The nillkin is unreal slippery compared to how it looks. Been using it for 3 days now and I'm very afraid of dropping my phone. Going to return the nillkin and try one of the poetic cases.

    The kayscase hard case is way grippier but they had some quality issues with their first batch. Also, the nillkin doesn't protect the screen when it is placed face down.

    i assume you are talking about the non textured back Nilikin. The one i posted pics of isnt slippery at all but i have been rocking the phone naked and it is totally fine. Don't believe the BS and just be careful. It is glass.

    I feel the same way. Am looking for another one as well.

    No, I'm talking about the "textured" nillkin. It's the slipperiest case I've used so far. I am still waiting for some feedback on the poetic atmosphere case, because that seems like a great deal.

    the nillkin case is not slippery at all, but a negative is that it does not protect the front corners.

    Just got my textured Nilkin. My first thought was that it was super slippery, mostly on the sides where you hold it anyway. It almost has a chalky kind of feel to it. I thought it would be a little grippier, but it's pretty hard and smooth on the sides. I guess the grips will come in handy of its on a couch arm or something. Maybe it'll break in a little also. The buttons are a little hard to reach, I'm used to smoothly sliding my finger up or down the side of the phone to lock/unlock it. I have to search and dig for the button a little bit now. I'm aware that comes with the territory of having a case...which I've never been a huge fan of anyway.

    The fit is fantastic. Firm, but not too tight. No weird overhangs or odd bumps. Everything lines up really well.

    I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I'll try it out for a few days, then decide. I'll probably just end up naked with the screen protector. Which by the way is a SUPER fingerprint magnet and is hard to clean...it just smudges around. It has a nice feel and look to it though.

    All in all, for 9 bucks shipped I have NO REGRETS.

    I just received the brown one yesterday. It's really sexy. Slippery too and power button is a bit difficult to reach as mentioned above. The screen protector is quite nice. I haven't had any issues with it . However it does not cover the entire screen.

    All in all this case is great. Really surprised how it looks and fits.

    Ya hate the way the power button is covered. After almost a week I'm shopping for a new case.

    I don't understand this "nillkin case isn't slippery" movement. Either a lot of us got a weird finish that is obviously very slippery, or some people don't understand what slippery is. I mean my nillkin case is so slippery it's worse than if the phone didn't have any case on it.

    Thanks for the reviews, I purchased an Ionic Guardian case from Amazon and I find that the soft part is a terrible lint/dust magnet. I wanted a bumper, but I was lucky enough to get my order in on launch day and I missed when they came back in stock since then. Oh well, I waited long enough for the phone lol, some more waiting won't kill me.

    that is absolute nonsense. Seriously set the phone on a slanted surface with and without. tell me it is worse.

    Yes the niliken is a hard plastic. That is the type of case you purchased. This thing isnt rubber. If you want to make your phone feel bulky and cheap throw a TPU case on there.

    I just received my black Nillkin case today and don't feel it's that slippery at all. Compared to a TPU case, it is more slippery but I don't feel it's worse than stock. I wonder if the texture is slightly different for different colors (my wife's Nokia Lumia 710 case has different texture for different colors). Or perhaps there are some counterfeits out there? Nillkin's website does have a warning about their products being counterfeited. I can't get the link now as their website seems to be down. Otherwise we all must have a very different relative definition of slipperiness...

    I'm not talking about setting it on a surface, I'm talking about how slippery it is in the hand.
