Split the difference, get gray
Why so monochromatic? The fun of a white one is all the different color cases out there to choose from! I came thiiiiiis close to switching to the white one for that exact reason.
But I like my blurple one just fine!
You will appreciate it more in the sunlight.... Less reflection..
i guess they recently relocated their factories to china then. i found a website that says their phones are made in korea, and so does my vibrant
did you do a full-body phantomskinz application or just the screen? id love to know if the incipio case fits over the whole thing... thanks
I don't care if it has an "i" in the name, this is the case I just ordered for the S3 I am picking up tomorrow. It is gorgeous, IMO.

uh. full matte means full-body In my case (no pun intended), I am using a clear screen and a matte back.
Do you want a couple private moments with your case :laugh:
Pretty sure there were reports of different people receiving their GS3 from both plants at random (china and korea) so your both right...
Dont remember for sure where I read it but there is a good chance it was in this forums (more than likely in another carrier thread though and since vzw locked bl it stands to reason they may have just used a single plant for the locked ones)
not only the name, but the ad as well as the website design rip straight from apple... thats hardcore man
alright, well just making sure. youll have pictures right
Man, if only I believed in dropping $40 on a case... :bawling:
I bought this as a fun temporary case while I wait for the Otterbox Defender to come out. The blue S3 looks real good, but it won't stay that way with a cheap case.
The Defender series has the rrubber on the outside.

not sure if it looks too bulky though. thoughts?
hey, was looking at these on ebay too. how do they fit? looks loose, from the pics.
Long shot but - can anyone help me find the Acase Superleggera PRO case from a source other than Amazon? It's stocked by ~8 different dealers but they're all on Amazon.
I'm in New Zealand and even though theres one seller that ships here shipping and handling is nearly 3 times the cost of the case. I've googled like mad and can't seem to find any other dealers.
Real tight fit. Not cheaply made. I had my doubts when I ordered it.
How much is a new phone or ins. copay compared to $40 for a great case? I can't speak for the icase, but Otter has save me more than once. That is worth a few extra bucks to me.
Wish they had the speck cases in a white/blue color, really love the white ones but idk if I like the pink/white combo! I want a white case for the white s3 :]
Very nice looking case. But that doesn't appear to be a silicone (Notice the "e") case. It looks like a TPU case. The silicone cases are softer, more stretchy and rubbery. I've never seen a glossy silicone case either. I know it sounds like I'm nit picking but there is a significant difference between the two materials when it comes to appearance and performance. When people are searching for a case and reading descriptions it's helpful to know the difference so you get what you want.
It said silicon on the box. Just repeating what the manufacturer called it.
I got my S3 on the 9th and put my otterbox commuter on it. Everything about it is great except for one thing.
The buttons (power, volume rocker) are annoyingly difficult to use. Its nothing that will make me take the case off the phone but I was wondering if anyone else if having this issue.
Also, has anyone had the commuter on their phone for a while? If so, has it broken in to become easier to use?
I understand. Unfortunately it's really common to see the two used interchangeably when they really are different. I don't know enough about chemistry to know what really makes up TPU and Silicone and there may very well be some overlapping ingredients. I just know that what is usually referred to as a "Silicone case" is relatively soft and stretchy whereas the TPU cases are much more firm and not very stretchy at all. They are very flexible but they don't really stretch or have the softer rubber feel that silicone does.
If you're familiar with the silicone bakeware or oven mitts that are becoming more popular in the kitchen isle of stores you see what it feels like. I'm not trying to be critical of you. I'm trying to educate anyone reading this because it's a thread about cases and there are big differences between the two materials. As with the packaging on your case, the people selling them frequently don't even get it right.

This looks pretty interesting - it says on the bottom in fine print they have a translucent apua which shows the original phone through - but i dont see it in the color choices for check out -
**update just talked to the company, no clear case in the works ....
I thought you bought the elago blue one? Didn't like it?
That's okay Benny, at least you didn't call it "a crappy, shiny silicone or TPU".....
And you were right about the "e" too.
