    I will buy the S3 the day it releases on verizon. Already buying accessories. As far as cases go, anyone found anything that looks good on the blue version. I have never had a blue phone and don't like how it goes with colored cases. Blue and black doesn't look good together, and I can't find a case that matches the blue. Was starting to think about getting the white phone, perish the thought. Anyone else having similar issues?

    Mod note: I've renamed the topic to be a general case discussion thread. Thanks for understanding!

    They have some pretty nice looking cases, curious if anyone ever purchased one for the past phones?

    Here are a couple S3 cases..

    I was looking earlier for a second and didn't see too many cases for it. I would think black would look ok, but am interested to see what people can find/suggest.

    Is it the same size case as the GS2? or not? If not, are there any good cases out yet?

    No, it's larger.

    Yep, plenty of good cases. From the OEM Samsung flip cases in blue or white to a host of other hard and soft backed bumpers. Otterbox are bringing their Commuter and Defender cases out soon and you can find loads of different cases on Mobilefun for instance.

    The flip case is a no-go for me. How are you going to take pictures or record video? I'm always taking pictures of my kids and I also like picking up my phone and starting it up with one hand. The flip case is way to awkward for me. I'm waiting for Seidio to come out with their line of cases. Not really sure what I'm going to do until then.

    Tons of cases on eBay. I already have a thin, white rubberized hard case for mine.

    What about clear that you can still see the seksi pebble blue? So far not seeing much that is thin and clear.

    Otterbox sucks (no grip, slippery)

    Ballistic for me when they get stock.

    It's pretty grippy. It has those little nodules all over the back.

    Nice find, looks really good, I am definitely going to think about getting me one too.

    Also, does anyone have prior experience with full body screen protectors? How do they compare with a case? Like how much protection does it offer vs a case? I am considering one to keep the form factor slim.

    My Case Mate Barely There just arrived. My favorite on my last three devices. Not a lot of protection but do not drop my phone and keeps the scratches to zero.

    Can not stand cases like the OtterBox

    Any recommendations for an s3 case with a belt clip. I'm looking at the otterbox, but who knows when it will come out.

    Check out Seido.com

    They have a great case/holster combo. The case is about as this as I've seen that fits into a holster. It's not so much the case or the holster, but rather the way they work so smoothlyTheir case/holster has a very smooth, one hand click operation. Oh, and very lint resistant
