I like the blue case, looks nice.
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.

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.
Ordered this one eventually. looks nice and light and very grippy

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.
It's a universal design, All cases will fit all models.
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.
How about this one? Looks like all other TPU cases.

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?
Are all TPU cases pretty much the same thickness and feel/grip?
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.
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.
