I purchased one of those inexpensive "Silicone Rubber Skin" cases from eBay for $4.00. It works fine and it will be impossible for you to have it slip out of your hand, nor will it slide off a surface like a dashboard.



It doesn't fit as tightly as I would ultimately like, in part I think because the screen is so big and goes almost side to side and top to bottom on the phone... Not a lot of room to have a lip that grabs. Still, if it were only manufactured to be slightly undersized, it would be a better fit.



You could get one of these as you search for the ultimate skin/case.

I went with a "Ballistic" case....silicone underlayer and harder but still "tacky" or "grippy" outer layer.

There are two other threads with some info also, accessory "best case for spec" and thread "find and accessory? Post it here" there are some case links, I bought a silicon one from Amazon, cheap, fit is tight, and looks good too. I thought I posted it in one of those but cannot find it now...

What I like most is that the black part in the pictures is actually see through and is showing the battery cover. Also the LG and LTE logos are still visible. Sorry the link is a mobile browser link.

I've also got the silicone case and have no complaints.

This Qmadix Flex Gel skin looks almost exactly like the one I have on my Spectrum.

It's a really nice low profile skin that's sort of shiny and not as sticky as a silicon case. It's also a bit stiffer than silicon. I really quite like it. It offers just enough protection against the types of potential damage it faces in its daily life with me.

If it ever wears out on me, though, I might be more interested in the Body Glove Icon case or the Qmadix holster/shell combo.

But for $5, I'd try the flex gel skin first.
