    Default Otterbox commuter case

    Is there anyone that has had the otterbox commuter case for a while? Do the side buttons become easier to press?

    I had one while waiting for my Defender case to arrive. The buttons were a bit stiff at first but, if you work them so that they fully surround the phone buttons, and the play in the case buttons get better with time. The Defender does not add that bulk and the silicone lining is much better than the one on the Commuter.

    I'm pretty sure I have the silicone wrapped around the button completely. Hopefully they just get better over time.

    Because unlike ios, i keep my apps in app drawers, and not in infinite cluttered homescreens

    I have a Commuter on my Galaxy Nexus. Different phone, I know. The first couple of days the buttons were stiff and somewhat awkward to use, but they settle in rather nicely after some use. They might have changed something for the SIII though, who knows..

    I've had the case for about a month. While the silicone does soften a bit, it still requires a bit more pressure to push than with other cases that I've used.

    I have had a otterbox on all 4 of my smart phones including my rezound. I love them and the buttons are easy to use. Like my gs3 the silicone can be a bit stiff at first. It breaks in after a short period.

    I use one on my gs3. I love it, buttons took a little getting used to. Sleek with protection.

    They get somewhat easier but not terribly much. I couldnt stand my Otterbox Defender case. The outside edges are so high up compared to others I have its almost turned into a small bowl. lol Also with the holster being sideways, the silicon case catches a lot and is now pulling away from the hard shell. Now my case looks like crap because its deformed.

    Watch the Defender drop test video by smartpedia on YouTube and you will understand why the heavy lip on the front is for a face first fall into concrete.

    I saw the drop test for the commuter case and it took a beating quite nicely.

    I had the commuter series when I got my phone and while waiting the defender series to be released. I didn't like the side buttons at all so I returned it once I had my defender series.

    I'm getting used to the buttons. But I found an outer minor issue. The raised edge on the case makes it very difficult to use quick controls in the stock browser.

    Day 2 of having the commuter, I really like it. It's different from other commuter series I have owned in the past, much tougher and more stiff.

    Was considering getting the defender again, if anything just to have it to change things up.

    Either I'm getting used to it or the buttons are getting easier. I love this case. But the hard plastic is a bit slick.

    They get a bit softer but still require some pressure to get them down. The case is pretty good though because its not to bulky and makes the phone seem less flimsy.

    Its not a bad case! In fact I have an unopened Commuter case if your interested? I had one and had to do a return. Never ended up opening it. I have the defender now in both White and Black.

    This commuter case is the black one. PM if your interested! maybe we can work something out.

    NIce case but no grip, softens up after a while or you just get used to it. Will be looking for another slim case with grip as weather gets colder tho...

    I'm not as worried about the grip with a rugged case on it

    Does anyone with the commuter case have an issue using quick controls in the stock browser?

    I have the commuter case, the buttons have gotten easier to press, but still require a smidge of pressure.
    I'm disappointed in how slick the case is though.
    Still looking for a case with better grip but can protect.

    You can try a seidio active case either with or without kickstand. Better side grip.
