So there is a lip that goes around the border on the front of the device?

Ok good, I'll have to get one. That is how the case on my Incredible is, and while I take very good care of her, I feel like I always want all sides protected from a fall. Those Incipio Feather cases (and others that leave the top/bottom open) wouldn't ease my mind at all!

I'm a big fan of the Barely There case, had one for my T-Bolt and Gnex. Was on the Case Mate site and saw this Brushed Aluminum case, looks very nice, curious how much bulk it adds.

Can not stand cases like the OtterBox

That's what I'll probably go with. I don't like the way the OtterBox sits horizontal in the holster. I usually clip my phone to my pocket and prefer the phone to sit vertical. Even my old Verizon holster/case for my Dinc wasn't bad, until I got the bigger battery w/seidio holster.

Doesn't really add much to it at all.

I have there HTC one x case, it's really nice. I may order it for my sg3, but the OX case was under 20 on amazon, hopefully they will sell this one to.

I'm waiting to see what SGP has in store. For the S2 that had a decent amount of cases, but it was only for the international version. With the universal design this time around it should open of the doors for accessories. I was the genuine TPU case that Samsung makes that is crazy thin. I like the idea of the device being protected but not affecting the thinness.

I'm also waiting to see what SGP has to offer. I did contact them to ask if they are going to make the Neo Hybrid but they said no :/

So far they only have two flip cases. I may buy the metal battery back on ebay and go with a bumper style case if SGP doesn't have something I like.

Anyone have experience with TPU cases? It is advertised as having the feel of a silicone case and protection of a plastic case. This is the one I have been looking at:

I got this Samsung Galaxy S3 Leather Case - Proporta but turns out it's synthetic leather...

I like my devices covered in real leather!

Will the design for the S3 be universal between all carriers including the international one? Finding a case for my s2 was a freaking headache because of all the minute carrier-carrier differences. I see some cases on ebay that say they're specifically for the 19300 the international one and so I'm hesitant to get one. I'll be buying the verizon version of the s3 as opposed to the sprint version that I have for my s2.

They told me the Argos, Folio, and the Ultra Capsule would all be out in the coming weeks and in July there will be even more.

Thanks. In that case, I'd like to get one of the metal battery door cover cases that I believe replaces the plastic one entirely.

Such as this one:

Not finding much for belt cases yet. Leather would be ok, so I can keep the phone closer to naked. Need to carry it though and pockets don't work for me.

I'm going to do a full wrap like Zagg or another brand and then go with either a cobalt blue or plain aluminum bumper guard with the white 32gb S3. It's gonna look sick! I'm on the fence about the blue brushed aluminum battery cover someone mentioned earlier. I'll post pictures after I buy the phone after my upgrade kicks in a couple weeks from now.

This thread totally helped me design my ideal S3. I'm excited as I'm leaving HTC, been a EVO guy for the last two Androids.

You do realize you will without a doubt mess every single sensor, reception, GPS, etc. with back covers and/or cases made with metal right?

that's exactly what i was thinking. i already bought a couple xtremeguard full body shields (in case i F up the first application) and i want to put a bumper on it so it'll protect it from falls but not hide the aesthetics of this beautiful phone. only problem is i don't really see any bumper cases on the market so far. something similar to the OEM iphone bumper case would be awesome.

These are the 2 cases which I bought. They seem to be at the moment pretty much good quality and excellent value for money protecting the phone without making it look ugly or over sized.

1) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BLACK-HARD-BACK-CASE-COVER-POUCH-WALET-SKiN-SHELL-FOR-SAMSUNG-GALAXY-S3-i9300-/200775132422?pt=UK_MobilePhones_MobilePhonesCasesP ouches&hash=item2ebf216506#ht_1948wt_1110

2) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Accessories-For-The-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-SIII-I9300-Leather-Wallet-Flip-Case-Cover-/251075702334?pt=UK_MobilePhones_MobilePhonesCasesP ouches&hash=item3a75472e3e#ht_1958wt_1344

I hope this helps people. Honestly I have always preferred mash cases but they are still over 15 GBP which is too expensive. Waiting for some quality fakes of the original samsung ones.

Does Otterbox Commuter attract tons of linen and dusts? I currently own Otterbox defender, and every time I pull it out of my pocket, it's surrounded by tons of linens and the rubber part falls off. Does the same thing happen to the commuter series?

Yup, once that rubber smooths out and looks polished, it attracts the pocket dust/lint pretty well. But since the outer shell is mostly polycarbonate, as opposed to the Defender which is all rubber outside, it's only stuck to the top and bottom.

Now this is true for my current N1, but the design spec is similar for all phone covers from OB.

I ordered this cheap a$$ TPU till SGP releases theirs, eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

I ordered it from the US ebay store, don't know why it's re-directing it there. I ordered it on the 5th, should be here just in time.

I bought one of their other TPU cases off Amazon and the quality is very nice. I have not been able to use it on the phone yet though...still waiting on my pre-order from Verizon.

Not really, it's just a metal battery door, it's not an entire case, plus the edges are plastic. People on xda bought similar battery doors for their S2's and experienced no problems whatsoever. Even said the aluminum helped dissipate heat and keep the phone cooler and possibly even enhanced signal a little. On a side note, most HTC phones are mostly made of metal and work perfectly fine.

I have been using metal cases for years and the the effect on signal is barely anything, maybe 2-3 decibles worse which is nothing...

I just googled Aluminum Bumper Guard Samsung SIII and got a bunch of results back. I'm still realistically 2-4 weeks away from getting mine so I'm sure more options will be available by then.

Send me picture of yours after you get it dialed in to your liking.

I had mine ship out from HK for $4 free shipping off ebay. Shouldn't take longer then 2 weeks (around the same time as the GS3).

Do you have a link to the same case on Amazon? I'm looking at all the Cimo ones and for some reason they don't look the same as the one the dude posted earlier on eBay. I really like the eBay one, but I'd much rather buy off Amazon w/ prime and more peace of mind.

Can not stand cases like the OtterBox
totally agree! I used to be a big fan of case mate! I have a few cases from them. I don't understand why people like Otterbox so much. I'm just too afraid of trying Otterbox. haha

I'm still searching for a good case with a belt clip. The otterbox looks like it's going to be bulky.

Damn I'm so confused. I'm looking at Aardvark's and then I also searched using draco's parameters and the first one that popped up was this. Can you guys tell the difference between this one and the white one that Aardvark posted?

I'm still kind of leaning toward the eBay case from Australia. From what I can tell, the eBay one has the rubberized edges while the Cimo ones seem to be made of silicon. Hard to tell from the pics.

Actually they are all the same exact case manufactured in HK, China. Cimo just buys it from China and puts a branding on it (probably just a sticker). All of those cases are the exact same thing. Here is the exact one I got, I just posted the Australian link because it showed all the colors.

Actually I think I figured it out. The one you talked about was a gloss case all around and the other two hybrid cases that Aardvark posted have rubber edges (I think). Aardvark's look the same as the one on eBay. I'm on the fence whether to get one with rubber edges or gloss all around. I have a Verizon gloss case for my Galaxy S and it's treated me very well so far. I'm afraid that the rubber edges on the other case will make it difficult to put the phone in and take it out of my pocket, but I do like the idea of holding the phone with a rubber grip. Ahhhh decisions decisions...

I have the same concern, can anyone w/ these cases comment on this?

Also that "clear" back case (not the s-back one) looks very cloudy in ajbrickyard's pics, I wonder how the blue will look through that?

The rubber edge is just slightly firmer than TPU and is smooth not sticky...the back is a little bit frosted as you can see but not alot, only affects the color a tiny bit(poor camera shot)
