Just how easy do the faces on your speedcube turn?
for example put your thumb on the f sticker of UF and a finger on the B sticker of URB can you hold your cube with just your thumb and finger or does R turn so easily that it falls out of your hand? (assuming R' isn't locked)

My cube turns well enough so that I can quickly spin any given face with a cotton swab.

My cube is not that easy to turn but it is still easy and it seems like it gets
easier to turm every day.

Mine is very easy to turn, but I couldn't be sure because I haven't compared it to what is supposed to be a "good"speedcube.

I can hold mine that way, but just barely (if I put even the smallest pressure on my grip it will do the turn)... I need a better speedcube.

I can hold it that way, but if I exert a little pressure then it turns and falls out of my hand...and drops onto my toe...and hurts...a lot...

Same if I exert any more pressure than needed to pick it up it twists and
falls. Should a speedcube be like this or that you can't pick it up at all?

not sure if a speedcube should be like that or not. All mine are, but then again I don't think i have a good speedcube.

I can hold mine with a fair bit of pressure without it dropping like that.
For those that can barely hold it, do you OH with that? And if so, is it difficult?

I do OH on my cube, but I'm slow (60-65 second average).

Well mine, my faces are tight, I keep them that way because if they aren't my cube locks up and gets misaligned easily...

All of my speedcubes turn R' that way. Some of the cubes I haven't made into speedcubes do too.

Mines about in the middle of the spectrum... it isn't like i could just poke it and it would do a complete rotation, but iwith one finger i can make it turn 3-4 times (obviously im holding it) and im ok with it not being extremely loose, because if it was id just lock up the corners every 5 turns...

i can hold my cube like that quite easily, but if i squeeze then it turns.
