    Is there perhaps an after-market back cover which has less slippery texture?

    I just ordered a case for one of my S3's but that adds 0.75oz to the phone.

    I know 0.75oz doesn't sound like a lot, but I'm really enjoying how much lighter this S3 is vs. my Evo 4G (6oz)

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Try searching for this one:

    Genuine Samsung EFC-1G6SBECSTD

    I just got mine today and it does exactly what you want. You don't get much protection but it will all grip and you literally can hardly tell it's on the phone.

    No. Do a Google search on the description. It's the pair of cases.

    I ordered a black back cover for my white gs3 with a leather insert which adds some grip on the back and looks pretty professional.

    Here is my thread on the Samsung Ultra thin cases mentioned above...

    It is my favorite case, because I love my phone without a case so this is the slimmest protection you can get that is
    close to nothing at all.

    Does Zagg make an Invisible Shield for the whole phone? I had the whole phone Zagg on an old Blackberry and it added quite a bit of grip without adding any bulk to the phone.

    I ordered one of these battery covers hoping for the same result...no extra weight/size/etc. but should add some texture to the back...less slippery!
