I bought one of these cases for the Samsung Galaxy S3 in December and it seems well made however the audio quality is atrocious with massive severe echo for both parties on calls. Opening the bottom of the case alleviates it some but I don't think i should need to open the case every time I'm on a call. I have sent an email to SEIDIO and they said to reinstall the phone in the case, this has already been done but it didn't fix the problem. They've said I can fill in a form for a replacement and they'll decide whether they will replace it, this will cost me more money since I'm in Australia and it has to go to the US, and there's no guarantee a replacement case will be any better.
Not real happy with the case due to this problem.
Has anyone had any echo problems using this phone in the OBEX case?
Hey guys I just bought this case for my s3 tonight at futureshop in canada thing is whwn I opened it its was missing the little red flas at the bottom and the manual so I used the extra that it came with but I dont know should I return it or is the flap going to last enough? Btw it was the last one at the store lol any ideas would help thanx
I have been using this case for a while skiing at Mt. Baker which can be a wet place. I find however, that the reception of the phone is significantly affected by the case. Has anyone else experienced this?
I'm having the same issues with my case s
ensitivity and the back arrow on my s3 do not work very well people also or tell me when I call them they can't hea r me or have a connection problem I've only used it for half a day
thinking about returning it to Best Buy
What about a detatchable wristband so I cant drop it to the bottom of the ocean when im filming me spear a fish here in maui. Also maybe get in touch with some tech guys and make an app that lets you start and stop video or take a snapshot using one of the pushbuttons
I ended up buying one, looks nicer here, no sensitivity issues at all, but the sound quality is atrocious. CS instructs putting it in and making sure that the speakers are all lined up, check... Doesn't help at all, ringer volume is too low, I can't hear the other person through the earpiece and I can't watch any videos because the speaker is muted. And the holster is cheaply made. Too much money to waste, I thought about removing the baffles but I shouldn't have to, and it would alter the case too much. I don't need it duck's butt water tight but it would ruin the case. On the return truck now.
I received my Seidio Obex case last week. After reading all the reviews on it, I was reluctlant about screen sensitivity & hearing.
When I installed my Galaxy s3 into the case, my fears were realized. The person I was calling couldn't hear me.
I called customer service & the problem was quickly fixed.
