Hello, i'm Josh from South Jersey. I decided to join this forum because I always end up coming to this website.
I am coming form an Otterbox Defender for my Samsung Galaxy sII Skyrocket LTE for AT&T. I've had multiple problems with this case. I have warrantied the defender case 2 times already.
*For one, the screen protector is horrible.
*Two, the silicone had teared on the headphone jack cover.
*Three, dust gets into the case through the cutout for the front facing camera and speaker. Which is annoying because I have to take apart my case every 3 days.
The case is huge and it feels like you're holding a brick, but the protection is phenomenal. I think it's overkill but it might be good for some people. In my situation, it really isn't necessary. So I want a thinner case that will still protect my phone. Otterbox has great customer service, too.
So, I need your help guys, I have narrowed it down to these 3 hybrid cases. Other suggestions will be taken into consideration. I would want to know why you would pick it. Which out the the 3 is the strongest & thinnest?
1) Otterbox Commuter
2) Seidio Active
3) Casemate Tough
I also need a screen protector. Here are some that i'm looking into. Which out of these are good with glare, finger prints, scratch resistance, clarity (retina display and rainbow effect) and installing?
1) SGP (What is the difference between the 3?)

I just bought the zagg invisible shield yesterday. I'm returning it tomorrow. The texture of the material takes away from the screen sharpness (slightly), the grippy texture makes Swyping and other finger motions a pain and the protector seems to attract dust. Also, the fitment is sub-par. The protector doesn't go as close to edges as I would like
My casemate was put to the test last night, placed phone on top of car while opening door went to grab it and phone slipped from my hands falling (seemed like slow motion) on to the asphalt bouncing on 3 corners! Case now is banged up a bit with small crack at one corner, with not a scratch to phone.
I'm using the OtterBox commuter and the Moshi screen protectors sold at AT&T store. Very happy with both. Although any/all screen protectors diminish brightness somewhat, it's acceptable and the touch functions are not impacted
No screen protector on my phone, and I use the Seidio Active X case for it. I manage to drop my phone several times per day, not a scratch on the screen and the case is still perfect. I always have a micro fiber cloth in both cars and in the house so I'm always wiping my screen. I chose Seidio because I like to keep my phone close to it's original size and not bulky.
You should have gone with the commuter version. It's pretty sturdy without the bulk of the defender.
The screen protector itself is eh I've replaced it twice cuz its kind of impossible to not get bubbles when you already put hands on your phone and there's dust floating around. The last application was worse than the original im thinking of just leaving it bare.
Otterbox is really good with giving replacements though. I emailed them for a new protector and they sent me an entire new case.
The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is AT&T's version of the Galaxy S II LTE. As one can figure, the phone features 4G connectivity via AT&T's LTE network. It was among the first phones on the carrier's network to feature next-gen... Read More
