    +1 for the Seidio case/holster. I have had them for my last 2 phones and they are thin but protective. They are very good quality and are easy to use 1 handed. Good grip but slides easy into pocket and no lint.

    I prefer the look of this one now:

    Genuine Samsung S3 Slim Case - White - EFC-1G6SWEC - Twin Pack

    It practically doesn't change the look of the phone, but still adds a level of protection to the back.

    Has anyone seen a clear case that is more a soft rubber? I just have had hard cases get dirt in them and scratch the crap out of my phone.

    My post above yours is a rubber clear case :) It's not released yet, but I think it should be any day. There were lots of accessories on mobilefun that said "not released" about two days ago that are now "in stock."

    Roughly $23. You may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere or locally to you.

    Does anybody know if the white Case Mate Barely There is matte like the black ones? I like the soft grippy feel of the black ones I had on my Desire and S2.

    Mine is glossy.

    One I have got that I really love is the red Incipio Feather case.

    After doing some research over the weekend I'm definitely going to buy a Diztronic TPU case for my GSIII, website says they'll be in stock on the 18th :)

    What do I search for on eBay for the that one, and do they have diff colors.

    The phone is already big so wondering if I should get an ottetbox or not

    This phone has a monster screen that will eat a lot of battery quickly. Will Mophie or Power skin come out with a battery case?

    That looks cool :thumb: . I always felt it was silly to get an expensive case. How much gerth does it add? I have a Seidio active case on my Thunderbolt, and it really makes it bulky. Im looking for something a little thinner this time around. The Otterbox, id imagine, would be bulky too.

    Id get this but that would get dirty real quick(you'll see all the dirt and lint accumulate). I'll just opt for a typical silicone case(i guess as close to blue as possible) in the same theory in mind. Won't ever get the hard snap on type cases since those tend to lose their "snap on" capabilities rendering them essentially useless within a few months time.

    Well, if the surface where it falls is leveled, than yes, it would. That isn't the case if it falls on a rough surface. To gain that kind of protection, you need a screen protector as well.
