This could be a bit off-piste, but the question is simple enough. I've got an HTC Sensation, one of these fantastic Android superphone things. Love it. Trouble is, the phone is too slippery, and I nearly drop it all the time. I could add a case to fix this, but ... adding a case makes it disappointingly bulky. What I want to do instead is to just make the shell of the phone itself more grippy!
My first thought was to thin some SilNet with paint thinner, and carefully brush the likely contact areas of my phone with that slurry. Chances are I'd want it thinner even than what I would do for sealing a silnylon tarp, right?
My question is -- do we think this will work? I don't know what SilNet sticks to, aside from silnylon. Should I use SeamGrip instead, with the same procedure? I haven't a clue what the shell of my phone is made of. ABS, polycarbonate, HDPE ... anybody know what's likely?
We're all nerds together here, so I expect someone to have some useful opinions about this. Thanks for whatever!
