    Looks very good BUT...

    Is it usable under water?
    Does the cover make it hard to press buttons?
    Can I use the phone without putting extra pressure on the screen?
    How strong is it against drops and falls? Will the case break off if it is dropped?
    Will the case be damaged (or no longer be waterproof) if it is dropped on the street or something?

    I'd like to see a drop test

    P.S.
    I also second a kickstand version, I prefer all my cases with kickstands!

    Im looking forward to this product. Waterproofing is essential in the Pacific NW. I am just hoping rain resistance is good. Then I will be singing in rain.

    Count me in for the extended battery+this case+belt clip combo. I will pay the premium price for that!

    For your underwater questions, the device's screen cannot be used under the water, because it is a capacitive screen. However, the built in screen protector does not hinder the touch screen's usage out of the water and no extra pressure is needed.

    The OBEX has exceed the MIL-STD-810G testing to provide protection for your Samsung Galaxy S3. (You can read more about MIL-STD-810G here.) However, if the case does get damaged this could make it no longer waterproof. We suggest testing the case without the phone if you think that it has been damaged in any way.

    There is a possibility that it could come for other Android phones, but there are no finalized plans at this time. I will forward your request to product development.

    I just went to purchase the Obex and see that the combo package with the holster is still "coming soon". Any (more specific) idea when that will be available?

    Also, I've been buying Seidio cases for years, and usually get a coupon code by email every now and then (got the Obex announcement today), but haven't seen one in a while. Any chance of getting one here (or sending one out to all your previously loyal customers)?

    The OBEX Combo will be available for shipping in the coming weeks. There is another option if you want to get the case now and holster later. We will have a discount promotion for the holster that will make it just $10 ($20 off MSRP) like it would be in the combo pack. However, you would need to pay shipping for the case and holster separately if you wanted to go that route.

    The headphone jack should work fine with normal sized headphone inputs. You will also be able to charge the phone without removing the case. The latch at the bottom opens up and there is a rubber stopper that you pull out to get to the charging port.

    Any chance u could test if a regular sized right angle connector works, and and post a picture? That would be a deal breaker for me if I cannot use my headphones while it's in the case!

    How does the screen protector feel? Does it distort the screen at all or does it still maintain good clarity?

    The screen protector does not distort the screen and maintains the GS3's clarity. While it is a little thicker than our traditional screen protectors to ensure it is waterproof, it feels natural when using the screen.

    You might need to purchase an adapter if you have a right angle jack. I also attached a picture of a normal jack plugged into the phone.

    Seidio,

    I must say that the customer service you guys and gals have shown throughout the years (back to my Treo 650 days) is the reason why I turn to you first for my accessory needs! I am just looking at your responses to some of our more demanding questions and its good to have this kind of access.

    I might have to get one for those beach days in the spring, if I dont jump ship to the Galaxy Note 2 (hint hint, you can start making one for that which incorporates a protective flap to keep the SPen secure from elements and you will have my money again)!
