Any Otterbox Defender series is bulky. It's rugged, but bulky. I stopped using it for my N1 because it wouldn't fit in any car mounts that I had. :P

It kind of irks me that OB doesn't make holsters for the Commuter series.

Looks like for now like I'll be planning on a Seidio case for the S3 when I get one next month.

I might go with this and the two flip cases that samsung made. I'll mix and match with the flip cases so my S3 can have a pebble blue back and white front.

I've looked and looked and can't find any that I really love. I git the pebble blue thinking it would keep the new phone look longer than the white, bit I want to put a pink case on it, which will just look weird. Guess I'll just order a cheap jelly type case to keep it safe until I find something I really like.

Got that EXACT same cover also!! Clear with matte back -- think it was $3 with free shipping from China --- Took about 10 days to get it ... Same quality as you see at a mall kiosk

Hoping the Blue looks good in it

It's really nice and light. Doesn't detract from the beauty of the phone

Yeah this is my favorite so far. I would assume it's a perfect, tight fit since it's Samsung made, right?

It's not actually Samsung made. I thought it was at first, but it's not. It is very tight fitting, very slim, like it's not even there really. Improved grip. I'm lessing worried about dropping the phone now

I got this one from Tesco in store, they had it for 10 Goes on and off really easy, adds almost zero bulk, grippy material, and if you stick a coin in the nubbin on the back you've got a kickstand!

Does the case have enough of a lip in the front that you can lay the phone screenside down?

It seems like that there might not be enough space to do that?? If so this might be what I buy too, looks very cool

These cassette cases aren't prrobably the best or highest safety rated however for a 1.50$ I'm sure its cool to buy 2 or 3 colors and have fun with them once in a while.

By the way if you are under 20, you probably don't even know what this case means. Which is sad

I want a case that is matte so finger prints and oils won't stick onto the case and make it feel grimey.

Not that happy yet with cases and no good belt case I can find so I think I am getting a screen protector and a Diablo Skinz skin. And might order a belt clip from Seido when they get it out.

A bit pricey but it's my fav by far. especially for my white s3.

Does the screen touch the surface of a table when laying it flat? Or is it protected?

This is the second time I've seen someone ask that, how come you lay your phone face down?

The case is slightly raised above the screen and body around the entire phone so the screen should be ever so slightly raised. There won't be much in it though.

Gonna get a nice TPU case, protective and slim. Samsung's look pretty nice, I like the breeze pattern a lot. Will the clear kind end up getting dirty easily though?

Samsung Galaxy S3 skins | Diabloskinz
All the belt clip cases I saw were either leather (I won't buy those anymore the one I purchased a couple of years ago had the clip on my belt and my phone hanging away from it from poor quality) or it was huge like you a carrying a gun on the side of your waist.

You can see from the pictures that it doesn't. You can see the silver trim at the bottom of the phone, so it doesn't even cover that.

Didn't even notice the bottom part till you pointed it out. Darn it, I really liked that case. Now to figure out what to get. Atleast temporarily I have that 3 dollar TPU till I figure out the right one

Edit: It looks like its not completely fitted on the pictures. If you watch the videos though it seems that there is a slight lip that keeps the screen protected ?? What do you think? Do you see what I see? I wish they address that in the video or on the site, but they don't

LOL it's hard to say - he kept waving it about and was more concerned with the back of the phone in his review of the cases. Have a look at this video though. It looks as though there is a lip at top and bottom and you are right about the case not being fitted in mobilefun's photos!

It is a very small lip, but it appears that it is there. The white version looks nice as well. I think the white phone looks good in both case colours. the white makes it look 'pure' if you know what I mean, but the black case looks great with the contrast of the vent pattern.

I like the case also but I don't think that lip, if there is one, is big enough to protect the face of the phone.

Probably getting the Androidified case. Does anybody have the white, black clear, or smoke cases and a white GS3 that can post some pics? Their site only features them on the blue GS3.

I've got my phone on order (waiting for the blue one!) but bought this in preparation...

Leather Style Wallet Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 - Black

Obviously not had the phone in it yet but it appears to be sturdy enough and of good quality. Not sure if i'm gonna like texting with it on as i'm used to a flip down case with my old phone but only time will tell.

I wonder if when the device vibrates if you can 'feel' it while it is in the case...

Do the thin shelled hard cases protect the phone from anything more than scratches? I can't see them offering any shock absorption.

I always use 2 layer cases for that reason.

Amazon has Otterbox cases (defender and commuter) with many different colors and for cheaper!

I've been looking at the bumper case for a while. I was going to post about it...see if anyone has it. I like the $9.99 + free shipping. I might just get it.

I found the Trident case. I had one for my O.G. Evo, but don't think I'll be getting one for the GS3.
