    I am about to pull my hair out. After dropping my S3 (without a case), cracking the screen, and then dropping $150 on the insurance to get a replacement, I want to make sure this one is at least somewhat protected. I've been looking for the "right" case for two days online. But I can't come to a conclusion.

    I know it's a matter of preference when it comes to cases, but what is the best case out there for the S3? Here is what I'm looking for:

    -slimmest/sleekest case that offers the best protection (I hate Otterbox because of the bulk)
    -something that is not flimsy plastic that will break in a week (price is of no concern)


    Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    You should consider otterbox this time, their defender cases for the s3 are nice. They add a little bulk but not as much as previous versions of the defender. :thumbup:

    And otterbox commuter isn't nearly as thick as you would think it is. It's pretty thin and nice.

    Give this a look over. I've got one and it's really nice. No bulk and plenty of protection.

    Rather than starting another 'case' thread here on the main Samsung Galaxy S3 forum . . it's really pretty easy to make up your own mind, and to make your own decision, after simply clicking on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Accessories sub-forum and then reading the plethora of 'case' threads; e.g.-

    Which case are you using.
    Thinnest TPU case you know of...

    I use two cases. My daily user is a Speck FabShell. When I know Ill be somewhere that the phone might be subjected to a little more abuse, I put on an Otterbox Commuter.
