I am very pleased with this case (especially for the price!). It is not flimsy, has a good, quality feel. It may be slightly more "plastic" than "rubber". I would say that the previous case I had was more "rubberized" than this one. However, this case is a bit sleeker - and does have a slight non-skid/slippery quality about it. Overall - a great case. And love the blue! I can now distinguish MY phone from the other 5 in my household!
