Good, but not as grippy as I'd like
I have tried three different cases: this one, Spigen Hybrid Armor, and Otterbox commuter series. Overall, this case protects as well as the others, is slim and unobtrusive, and the "green" color is actually a blue-green which appeals more to me than if it were as green as the picture online. I like that I can lay the phone screen down and the case keeps the face off the surface. The reason I am giving this case 4 stars is that it isn't a grippy as I thought it would be given that it is silicone. I have an iPhone 5 with a Trident Aegis case that is a hybrid with hard plastic and silicone - that silicone is very grippy and I feel very secure in holding that phone. I wanted something similar to that, but it seems like that type of silicone material isn't being used anymore. So, for now, this is my best option, but I'm still looking for something a bit grippier. One drawback is that although this isn't overall as grippy as my Trident Aegis case, it still pulls my pocket inside out. This is why I prefer the hybrid cases like the Spigen and Otterbox Commuter since a large portion of the case is smooth plastic. But they suffer the same issue as this Anker case: the TPU material just isn't grippy enough. Between the Spigen and the Otterbox, though, I'd give the edge to the Otterbox.

High quality but too thick
It looks and feels very high end. There is quite a bit of thickness all around which for sure would protect your phone from minor drops and scratches. Two problems: 1) it is too thick making it hard to hold with one hand while texting at the same time. 2) the material that is used makes your pockets bunch up when you take it out. I felt that the iPhone glass felt a lot more grippy and definiately does not make your pants bunch up.
Edit: Anker has really great customer service. They took my return seriously and offered to send me another type of case that might fit my needs even more.

Great at first, but then quickly goes bad.
The case was great when I first got it. It felt smooth and had the right amount of protection. However, after only a week the case started to feel slippery and the edges would attract MASSIVE amounts of lint and dust, no matter where I put my phone. It was gross having to wipe off the lint, dust, and debri constantly and it made the case feel cheap and unusable. I expect better from Anker since they make such great charging products, but this one has me disappointed. Oh well, I'm just going to go to spigen for my next case.

Soft silicone case that attracts too much lint
Soft silicone case. I bought this for one of our male employees. It feels a bit rubbery, not so smooth, which is good for keeping a hold on it. However it also attracted a lot of lint. If he put the phone in his pocket, it came out covered in lint. So he asked for a replacement case. I tried giving this case to another male employee who said he wanted something that would be easy to keep a hold of. He used it for a day and asked me to get him something different, again because of how much lint it attracts.

Case is great. It provides the kind of grip that instills confidence in not ever feeling like the phone is going to slip but don’t count on keeping your phone in your pocket or any pouch which has lint or dust. It just sticks to the case in a thick conspicuous layer. And, the static electricity generated from rubbing around in the pocket must transfer to the screen because the screen also attracts a layer of dust that doesn’t fall off when you blow or wipe it. It just moves around. You can wipe down the case with a wet towel which works really well but it just comes right back the next chance it gets close to dust or lint. Really wanted to like this case because it’s of good quality and workmanship but for practical purposes it’s just too much of a nuisance to maintain.
Update: upgrading my review of the product because of the excellent customer service received thus far. Anker truly does want their customers to be happy. They contacted me directly and we worked something out with an alternate case and an offer to try out an improved version if/when it comes out. Can’t say enough good things about Anker.

Silk is advertising for slippery
I really love this case but it has one big flaw. The case looks good, it fits excellent, there's enough room for a glass screen protector and a metal plate to mount it. The biggest problem is that the "silk" part is really just advertising for slippery. I mean really slippery. I can't even write this review without my phone sliding out of my hand.

It is just so comfortable for hands
It is just so comfortable for hands. I always hate some cases make you hands sweat. But this one with its awesome silicone material your hands would feel you touching silky human skin. And yes no hands sweat anymore!

Can’t put your phone in your pocket.
It definitely has a slip-PROOF material. However, the downside of that is trying to put it in your back pocket or even your coat pocket is difficult. Then, when you go to take it out of your pocket, it’s literally impossible because it sticks to EVERYTHING! Therefore, it also collects a lot of dust, dirt, and lint. I wound up having to get a different case because of this issue. What sucks is that there aren’t any returns... so think about this BEFORE purchasing.

The back side is suede, so nothing can stick to it...like my pop socket or car holder!

Love this case and Anker customer service!
I ordered many different cases for my iPhone X and I have to say that this is the one that I like the most. The material and tactile feel makes this so comfortable in my hands. Other cases are slimmer but this one offers the amount of protection that I need. Another plus is that this case never slipped out of my hand unlike other cases.
