    I too use the sammy flip cover. I loved it at first, loved it less after a while because of the obtrusiveness while taking pictures, and flat out hate it after the corners started peeling back a bit, and a bit of a bubble effect at the hinge after everyday use.

    I'm thinking about getting this next

    I swap between a Diztronic TPU and a Rock Quicksand. Love both of them.

    Rocking a CruzerLite persona case but I have an Incipio Faxion case ordered and should be here tomorrow. Dropped my phone the other day while I had only a feather case on it but luckily it landed on the back so the case was only hit but gave me a scare and now paranoid about dropping again in a worse way lol.

    CruzerLite persona
    I like having some grip but not adding much bulk. My daughter's persona case has started to peel though - not happy.

    Otterbox Defender - It's strong, doesn't creak and gives great protection. However, some would call it big. That doesn't bother me. I find the S3 way too skinny without the case on it and difficult to use because of the thinness With the case, I have something to hold onto that doesn't slip from my grasp.

    I also find the power button and volume buttons too easy to press without the Defender case on it. With the case, the buttons need a little more pressure to work,which I find perfect. I don't get any accidental volume presses when I'm trying to dim the screen with a momentary power button press.

    I'm thinking of getting this Diztronic case:
    Diztronic Blue GlitterFlex TPU Case & SP for Samsung Galaxy S3 - $9.90 : DIZTRONIC.COM, - TPU Cases for Android Phones

    It's glittery!

    ETA: Just bought it. I couldn't resist the glitter, lol.

    I have a Seidio Active case with stand. It's a 2 layer case that provides a moderate amount of protection, but is also thin enough to be pocketable. It only adds 4mm to the phone. I pocket mine at home and the office. Seidio also makes a dedicated holster for it if you prefer to wear it.

    Here's a quick review.

    If you want something more basic, I'd recommend a diztronic tpu case. It's really a tradeoff between thickness and protection as well as price and what you like aestheticly.

    Seidio Active Case and Belt Clip for me (with the metal kick stand). I am happy with it so far, however I haven't seen many other S3's in cases to compare it with... It does make the thin phone feel thicker though...

    I use the Cruzer lite case,still thin enough to fit in pocket and not really know its there.
    I did purchase recently a soft case with a belt/pocket clip that I can carry the S3 in while its still in its Cruzer lite case.
    The soft case doubles as it works with my nexus as well

    I got the . Puts some bulk on it, but protects it well and actually makes it easier to hold. The built-in screen protector makes the screen look a little pixelated, but was so much easier to install then the cut-em 'n' stick-em variety. The lip protects the face, but does make the buttons slightly less accessible.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    I'm using a knock off otterbox case I got from the flea market. I know I know I should have sprung for the real thing but they're too expensive.

    Mine arrived today. It does add some bulk, but still thinner than the Thunderbolt was with case and still very light.

    The kickstand is the main reason I bought it. That is the one feature all phones should come with.

    Incipio Feather. Can barely tell there's a case there.

    I bought a Otter Box Commuter from Amazon, it was $21 with free shipping. Case came in 4 business days.

    Case offers great protection (comes with screen protector) and doesn't make the phone to big to put in your pocket.

    My vote is for the Seidio Active Case. I've had one for three different devices and the quality is always top notch. It keeps my device pocketable while giving two different textures which help it have some grip and still having protection on the back and corners. Adds just enough to the front side of the device that I can avoid adding a screen protector for any standard drops/slips I may have every now and then.

    Using the Seidio Convert case setup. I'm digging how you can "go light" or "go heavy". Awesome case.

    I'm using the Acase Samsung Galaxy S3 Case - Superleggera PRO Dual Layer Protection in the Blue Color. I was originally going to get a Blue S3, but ended up with a white. Case still looks good on it though. It's a dual layer case, so I feel it protects the phone and it's not that thick. I like it a lot.
