Holy crap, the Quadlock case for my iPhone was $30 and it actually performs a useful function to boot. This is wild. The Magpul cases are still around $25 and they’re damn near indestructable.

Been using Otterbox Defender since I started SmartPhones probably 10 years ago. Been $49 since day 1.

I have a current/new Galaxy A52 5G. I stop at one of those fancy phone case stores at the mall to buy a snazzy case. Look all around the store and can't find my phone. The sales guy asked if he can help me and I mention my phone, all excited that I'll get a cool case! Nope. He goes to a dark corner of the store, pulls out a box from UNDER the counter and just leaves it and walks away. I got a boring but nice black case and my wife got a gold trimmed case for hers. $15 each or 2 for $20. So is the life of boring phone owners......

I dont want a cool looking case I want one thats really grippy and protective. butte grippy part is hard.
You want a textured TPU case.

I have this one and it’s been great for the last few years, when my phone was new. This has been my only case.

It’s a single piece and is easily cleaned. It’s not soft material, so it won’t “grip” the inside of your pockets. The texture is subtle, but I quite like the pattern. It’s not very thick either, life proof and otterbox are way too bulky and expensive.

$20 up from $10 and dropped dozens of times. OK so I’m spastic but $10 did the job. “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

Mr. Foofer is sucked in by every retail overpriced knickknack available. He can sit this $90 phone case next to his $60 alan keys and brake pads.
All of which look impressive but are 99% marketing and 1% substance

Middle of the road my friend... not buying at either end of the spectrum.
And believe me nothing on this website gets me angry... But breaking your 🏐 🏐 does add entertainment value when I'm bored. 🙃

Grippy case? Easy. Speck Presidio Grip case. It is a one piece, rubbery case that stretches over the phone with a ridged texture.
I have one that they threw in when I got a new phone about 3 years ago. I switched to a Speck Presidio Wallet case that holds a bank card, two credit cards and my DL. Also highly recommended. I wish they made a Grip case that held cards. The wallet case is hard plastic and not real grippy.
I never carry a wallet anymore. The Presidio is the only phone case I have bought a second time, and will buy it a third time next new phone I get. In the US the Grip might be $ 30.00.
The Wallet case is about $42.00 CDN up here. The Grip is less $. CN

used to grippy but the last one I got for the 13 was very ungrippy.
