    Hi all.

    So after many android phones, I finally decided to join the discussion. So let me ask for help, all while airing some frustration hehe.

    After the S3 & S5, I now have the S6. I really really resent Samsung's Decision to go iPhone with the back, no battery and no sd, but yeah: Business. I still went for the S6, because of the inside. I'm just too happy with the way Samsung has been bringing their brand of improvements/modifications with their phones, and simply just don't want to miss it.

    But that glass back, makes me hate my phone every day. I can't just put something beneath it, when I have it next to me on the table, to be able to easily watch a series while typing, it'll slide right off. Today, I had it next to me on the couch, and sliiiiide and it's on the floor.

    I've always had covers, but lately, with the S5, I started to got without a cover. The phone looks great, and I thought I wanted to see it, slim and nice, not always have a bulky brick in my hand. So I stopped using a cover and was happy with the decision..

    ..but it seems now I have not other alternative. Or is there? I just can't have the phone like that. I like to USE my phones, it's an instrument, and not a jewel box I'm carrying with me. But with the S6, just holding it in the hands, kind of gets makes me treat it more like some bomb fuse that I slowly took off a hot bomb and need to put away, rather than a tool, I'm constantly using for everything (which I am).

    For those of you who feel similar: what cover do you use? I want something simple, not a protection vs dropping the phone, just something that makes it less slippery when handling it or when putting it down.

    End of rant and hope for help hehe.

    I would look on amazon.com, they have a great selection of cases and skins for the S6.

    I've never been one for a case, why hide away the hardware when it looks amazing, but with my new S6 it really is a slippery bugger. The other day it just slipped out my hand when I was on the phone - thankfully my ninja reactions caught it before it hit the ground - but next time I might not be so lucky. I ordered a simple silicone transparent case from Ebay - some of the cases on Ebay are really slim so it won't add too much to the phone - plus with the transparent material you can still enjoy the physical appearance of the phone.

    Or go onto slickwraps and order yourself a skin I would suggest the natural series, I have cork on my Nexus 6 and love it

    Protection might be more of a concern since both the front and back are glass, a first in a Galaxy device.

    What are they? a foil? isn't it messy/hard to apply, and if you eff it up, you're done?

    Unfortunately, I live in Europe...
    Having that sent over to germany will cost quite a bit, and probably take a while...

    I'm from the UK - they took about 2 weeks to be delivered and the postage wasn't that expensive tbh.

    They are really easy to apply and both websites - dbrand and slickwraps comes with instructional videos to watch. You can also remove them and they leave zero residue.

    I use this the Samsung Protective Cover for Samsung Galaxy S6 - Clear Black Sapphire:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...cUvbUpU4409400

    It's the official Samsung cover, and it only attaches over the corners leaving all of the sides open. It doesn't slide around when I put it down, and the handling is greatly improved. I can reach all the corners of the screen without fear of dropping it now.

    They may carry it on Amazon UK.

    So changeup, I am with you on this same problem, I have the Gold S6 64GB and like you are not one for cases either, but have really started noticing this slipping from the back and I can't place it on top of my wallet a pillow or anything without it sliding off. I did get 1 clear Ringke case but I'm still not going to use that all the time because I don't like cases. So I found this and am supposed to get it today so will follow back, but its a back tempered glass glass cover and its supposed to be better than the normal ones you get with the cases. I'm hoping if I try this it will cut down on the fingerprints and the slipping of the phone, you should check it out on amazon here - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...cUvbUpU4409654

    and it's less slippery then right?
    I see that slick only does backs, dBrand both sides. Do you guys know if there is a "slippery" difference between the different colours you can chose? they're purely looks right, they're all just foil?

    It's definitely less slippery - each design comes with a different feel and texture to it, they aren't foil. imagine a giant sticker for your phone. from Dbrand I've had a carbon fibre back and a matte finished back for my Nexus 6, both have different textured feel to them. I would say the carbon fibre finish is the least slippery out of them both. From Slickwraps I ordered from their natural line, including wood and cork. So far I've only used the cork back, both feel really good in the hand.

    Have you tried a bumper since you don't really want a protective case? I have a nice metal one from Verus, but you may want to try a rubber one. I haven't had an opportunity to test signal strength with the metal bumper yet.
