    Comming from a blackberry I still like my slip case. I lost it (my slip case) earlier this week and I ordered the same one as I had from the UK again. I have a TPU case right now and I hate it.

    Here is the link to the case. The case fits my wife's S2 (a bit snug) and the HTC ONE and S3 perfectly. And for under $10 shipped accross an ocean it's not too bad.

    I have a Phantom Skin Chromatic over the back and sides (In black metalic wood finish) and I find it adds a nice bit of grip onto the device.
    Here is the link to the skin:

    This is a common complaint it seems. Mine should be in tomorrow. I opted to return my defender because of the disappointing screen protector, I don't see it being worth the money if I have to punch out the screen protector.

    All built im screen protectors are gonna be suckish; punch it out and stick a zagg hd on that bad boy,the Ob Def. will cover up what little the zagg shield doesn't. Its worth it man,the protection and the clarity of it. Well worth it.

    I was seriously considering doing this. I have on mine now the spigen nano crystal and it's pretty amazing. I'm sure it doesn't have the protection that ZAGG offers but man it looks good, like not having a screen protector.

    Think I may wait a bit, see if I can get the defender for cheap. Was able to get the razr defender case for $11 on Amazon, hopefully I'll come across that again.

    Just saw this thread.
    Anyhoo mine is naked too,just an blue aluminum back cover on it more for cosmetic appearance then protection .I got the White version of the S3 but with the aluminum back cover I can switch it up whenever I feel like. I kinda like the little bit of added weight it adds to the phone.

    I use the Hyperion extended battery as well. There must be a case for the phone with the extended battery but I haven't checked.

    I would have gone w/o a case (nekid!) and just a screen protector >>IF<< Samsung had made the side chrome trim knurled. I think the SGS3 looks great nekid, but it is too slippery! I also love how thin it is. Maybe someone can make a set of side stickers for the phone that are sticky. How about that gritty stuff they stick to stairs to make them non slip. Kinda like sandpaper with adheasive on the back. If there were some strips of stuff about 5 x 50 mm for the edge, that might be interesting. I'd still hate to cover up that chrome.

    Order a Zagg Extreme. Completely scratch and break proof so no need for a case! (its a clear protector that covers the whole phone) you should look it up on Zagg.com....it's a life saver...

    There's always the Samsung ultra slim cover--next best thing to carrying the phone naked. Thin & transparent, so the phone's not hidden, but provides some grip so that you don't drop the phone.

    Regarding the Samsung clear case: I have a very similar case on my sammy right now. Shows the chrome, and my DecaGirl decals. While my current case is quite thin, it's still more bulk on a good looking phone. As many have said, It's a real shame to cover it up - but it's so damn slippery. Thanks for the ideas though.

    I'm using the Verizon case with built in kickstand and holster. I like it a lot. Was using the same type of case on my 4S. I might pick up a defender or one of those Samsung flip cases. Those are VERY professional looking!!

    Seems like the third-party folks have been keeping an eye on my posts and grabbing up my great ideas. No sooner than I say there needs to be a grippy treatment for the edges of the SGS3, they snap up my idea and run with it. Now, just got to come up with and extra 5 large.

    its Samsung endorsed and doesnt add much thickness. id be fairly happy to drop it from pocket height but not ear height. one minor problem is theres no charging slot when its closed but it is really nice when youre out and wana look smart lol

    I use the otterbox commuter with a zagg hd screen protector on my S3 so far no drops or knocks but I wouldn't trust myself to have it naked.
    The otterbox is really good but adds considerable bulk to the phone which isn't ideal but I can live with it.
    I would say that the back of the otterbox is still pretty slippery so there's still a chance of dropping it.

    I might sneak out and get one of those before I go back to work on tomorrow. Or at least the Samsung endorsed flip from Verizon!

    cool. flip cases work great with "wave control" app.. you can set it to switch the phone off by closing the case (mega slick)
