Does anybody here have this case?
BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for Nokia Lumia 920 - Windows Phone Protective Films - The WP Central Store
I like the look of it - and am wondering what others opinions on it are. Is the case really "slippery"?
I"m also considering the Dura-Gel case for the extra grip
Ventev Dura-Gel Case for Nokia Lumia 920 - Windows Phone Skin Cases - The WP Central Store
any opinions on either of thes cases would be very helpful. thanks!

I would also like to see real life pictures of these cases, especially the carbon fiber skin. I would like to get the white for my black L920 but these pictures only show the back and the top of the phone, I want to see how the front looks like with these skins

My cousin's friend got the Carbon Fiber Ghost Armor on his iPhone 4S. I was considering it on my Lumia 920 until I saw a picture of it online. They're really just fancy stickers. They add some grip, but no legitimate protection. The guy I'm talking about also said he wouldn't try to put it on himself, but they charge $15 to put the thing on, so screw $45 for a Ghost Armor sticker. I'd imagine this is essentially the same.
I'm going to probably go with a generic TPU gel case for my phone because I want grip and a little bit of padding for my phone.

TPU gel cases are great for many purposes so I would recommend it. I got a blue one for $5 from local chinese mall :D
The side of the phone gives great grip too. I like.
I also ordered some hard cases and they're on their way, will post pictures once I try them on.

I've got it on my phone. I wanted something to protect the back when I set it down on stuff. It makes it not quite as slippery as bare naked but it not really grippy. The set comes with decals for the back, front, top, and bottom. I ended up taking them off the top and bottom because I didn't like the feel against my palm. Also, the pieces that go above and below the screen on the front didn't stay on very well so I removed them. Finally, the back piece that wraps around the side started to peel away so I had to do some more trimming. What was left was just the back and sides. I like it though. It feels like it will provide plenty of protection and gives a little more grip.

(Sorry to revive a really old thread)
I just got mine in the other day for my black 920, and it works great. Gives the phone a much needed amount of grip. While it's not super grippy, it provides plenty of grip to hold on to without being overly grippy. It does pick up pocket lint a bit, but nothing a qiuck swipe on your shirt won't fix. I like it a lot, and it was super easy to apply. If you have a hairdryer, hit it on high for about 15 seconds and it will stick immediately and stay on perfect. The pieces that go above and below the screen don't stick very well, so I just took them off. I didn't apply the clear screen protector simply because the feel of the screen is fantastic and didn't want to cover it. Highly recommend it, just make sure you apply it to the phone with some heat otherwise the edges will most likely peel up. Everything works fine on the wireless charging as well, none of the ports are blocked and it adds much needed grippiness and scratch protection.
