    Default Best case for samsung galaxy s3?

    Do you think otterbox is the best for my samsung galaxy s3?

    I use the otterbox commuter it adds a little bulk to the phone but also adds a lot of protection.
    I work in a warehouse so the added protection is a must. I would look at how and where you use your phone to decide what case you need if like myself you work in a place where your likely to give it a few knocks then go for the otterbox if you work in an office then maybe just a gel skin would be better.
    In the end the decision is yours but as a user of the otterbox I really like the added protection and cam live with the added bulk.

    The OB Defender case is definitely worth it. There is a drop test video by SmartphonePedia Sales with the GS3 encased in a Defender case that was enough to convince me.

    I've used the commuter on all 4 of my smart phones and it has saved every single one of them.

    The defender all the way. I have a white s3 and i bought the glacier colored case; i dont like the built in screen protectors cause they degrade the screen so as i did with my last phone i decided to rip out the screen protector and stick a zagg hd on this badd boy. Doesnt grade quality,phones looks sexy (and looks 1 of a kind trust me!!) And the phone is protected. Imo i loved the s3 naked,but it was kinnda hard to hold w/o feelinq i was qonna drop it. So i put the OB Def. And its easier to grip imo. Cheak out that combo.

    Best case is subjective. It's a tradeoff between protection and bulk. Otterbox Defender and Seidio Convert offer excellent protection, but I wouldn't want to carry them in my pocket. Both are offered with a belt clip.

    Personally I like the Seidio Active dual layer case with kickstand. Decent protection, pocketable, only adds 4.4mm.

    Understand that the built in screen protector is going to disappoint you in the otterbox. It doesn't fit flush on the screen and is way too thick. Also distorts the screen considerably.

    i think its best to have a few cases. a nice rubbery comfy one for at home, a slick flip case for goin out and a really hardcore one if you have a manual job or are very clumsy
    sometimes i like to play with the phone naked (my guilty pleasure) and it feels so sleek and beautiful

    Probably correct. I still haven't found one I like. I was hoping to just keep one case. I ordered the flip case this morning (this time paying $20 instead of Verizons $35) and the diztronic that everyone seems to like.

    Still think the best deal is the shell holster on Amazon for $5

    I'm waiting for the new Obex from Seidio. The convert from them is pretty good too. I'm not very happy with the OB Defender right now.

    Amazon is still shipping down my OB Commuter. I plan to use the screen protector that comes with it for a week and then I'd probably upgrade to either the Xgear Glass thing, or grab a Zaggs HD.

    Those of you with the otterbox defender, any way you could post pics of how it looks with the screen protector gone? I've been using considering it.

    This is how my phone looks with the ob def on. Sorry about the fuzziness. Its from a diff phone,but if you have a white s3 the glacier color and the zagg hd is the way to go. You wont regret it. My friend who has an iphone didnt notice i had a screen protector untill he saw the small line around the speaker and camera on the front,he said he's qettin an s3 cause of me. lol

    I would highly recommend the a case. It's an amazing case that doesn't add too much bulk but protects the phone. I've dropped mine face down on accident from about 4 feet not a scratch on it. I would recommend this over the otter box same protection but less bulk.

    That looks pretty good man. I am still going to return mine. It's just too much money and I'm not happy with it.

    That said I will keep an eye out for one on ebay or Craigslist. I got one on Amazon for my old razr, said it was used but in the comments said just repackaged. Got it in and it was brand new for $11 shipped.

    I picked up the Otterbox Defender yesterday, and I'm not happy with it. I love the protection it gives the phone, but the screen protector sucks and the clip that holds it in the case doesn't seem strong enough. I have popped the phone off my belt holster inadvertently a few times now.

    Guess I'll try something else. I like wearing the phone on my belt, so a holster is a must. I like the Platinum case that I got from best buy, but wanted more protection.
