    Well I'm buying an S3 on Black Friday, and I can't decide between these three cases to get for it. I'm getting a White S3. The three cases are:
    1.Urban Armor Gear White
    2. Seidio ACTIVE Blue w/Kickstand
    3. Ballistic SG MAXX Black/White

    Please help me decide which is the best from the three. I watched and read reviews for each, but it's a difficult choice for me. Thanks for reading! :)

    Moved to Samsung Galaxy S3 section. :)
    I would go with either the Seidio ACTIVE Blue w/Kickstand or the Urban Armor Gear White.

    Have SG max myself and it's probably the best I've had on any phone. I used a trident kraken on my previous phone and this one has everything it lacked. Sturdy but not massive, belt clip feels strong and secure. All of this without the bulk problems. My 2c.

    I just had this leather belt case made Barranti Leather , I should have it in my hands this week. I also had a gun holsters made from Barranti and his work is top notch.Barranti Leather is well known for his western style gun holsters and belts. He designed it exactly how I wanted it with the access hole at bottom so I can charge my phone without removing it from the case. The hole will also help me push up on the phone to remove it from the case. The case is made so I do not have to remove the protective rubber case I already have on my phone. I made a template out of wood so I did not have to send him my phone .

    The ballistic looks awesome. DO you have to keep the clip on it? I think the clip is for old folks and have never used it. Kinda pointless.

    I'm also looking for a case thats maybe a little rubbery so it doesnt fall out of my pocket? I have a cheap case I bought when I first bought the phone thats plastic, slides out of my pocket when I sit down sometimes.

    Nah you don't need to use the clip,I never liked them either but it works well for work and to protect the face from whatever might be in my pocket.

    Something you might notice is that most screen cracks are from corner drops, and the case has thick rubber surrounding the entire corner and the rest is fairly slim. When I was looking for a case that's what sold me on it.

    I got a body glove at wal-mart a few weeks ago. Great case fits perfect and leaves easy access to buttons and a textured feel so it is not slippery and not real bulky. Makes it easier to hold in one hand and turn on and do things with one hand.

    Personally went with the Seidio Active case *without* the kickstand so that it would lay flat. Case looks great and provides a reasonable compromise between bulk/protection.

    I'm buying the Lifeproof when it comes out. Waterproof, Dust, and Shock proof? Yes, thank you. I'm ok with paying the $80 to protect a $600 phone. I work Security at the Childrens Hospital in Boston. It's nice to be able to wash my phone with Soap or just put Hand Sanitizer on it when it's got nasty shit all over it.

    Had it on my iPhone, and never regretted it.

    I just got the Ballistic SG 3. I like the feel, no bulk. I have a issue with the screen protector. Any tips on how to install it?

    Hey, just read this as I looked for reviews on the UAG case, and saw that you worked at the Children's Hospital in Boston. I was at the race that day, and it was crazy and scary. I don't know if you were able to help anyone on that day, but just wanted to let you know that I'm glad for the service you provide for the kids.
