@wkempf: "Slick" as in the OS is super smooth, even compared to the Lumia 900. The hardware is also more "slick" because it looks smoother with the slightly curved glass. And yes it literally feels smoother which can be a disadvantage, but it's not to the point that it is slippery.

I'm not putting a screen protector on this time, so maybe that is part of what I'm experiencing as the screen is much smoother without a screen protector.
