    I had this variant and was very happy with it short of a few minor issues. One was not a concern as the protection this case offers outweighs it's aesthetic blemishes. However, for sake of what others say, taking it apart to clean or swap the battery does cause the silicon to warp. Compared to the cost of or cost and time replacing a cracked screen, this is no big concern to me. Still, it is quite a challenge to take this one apart. The other issue I had was the built in plastic shield over the phones glass. It has a minor gap between the glass causing a noticable impact on using the touch screen. Very annoying and yes the layer does let dust in. Keep in mind, the case is not dust proof. Never saw anything regarding that. If you are in sandy or rocky envrioments beware as sand under that clear layer will cause pits and minor scratches in the phones glass. Personally, I remove the clear shield layer and have been fan of these otterbox cases hands down. Regardless. This case will protect your phone. Ditch the clear plastic glass "protector" and use rubbing alcohol to clean the adhesive. Best to use a self sticking screen protector and either way expect it to get dust in the case. The S4 version of this case improves on these points actually so if you have the S4 expect better things with that series of this case style.

    The outer shell failed to keep its shape after just three months of use. The inner shell provides excellent protection against most dust in regards to the phone screen but the medal band around my Samsung Galaxy S3 is impregnated with divots from concrete dust entering the case from the side. Even when trying the outer shell on in the store I noticed that the outer shell was a bit loose on one corner but thought it would not deteriorate. Unfortunately though the outer shell completely lost its fit in about two months. The built-in screen protector does a great job protecting the phone screen and does not hinder sensitivity for the touch screen but becomes easily scratched itself in short order. I have dropped the phone on hard concrete about five times now and the inner shell provided excellent shock protection.

        Comments about Otter Box OtterBox® Commuter Case for Samsung Galaxy S3, Black:

        Love my Otterbox! I purchased it for my new Samsung phone and I love how it has 2 protective layers and a screen protector. My phone is protected and that makes me feel much better. I am still careful with my phone but I have the piece of mind that the phone should be protected from an accidental drop. Only issue is that the buttons don't seem to line up correctly. They are hard to press for volume and phone lock. I am going to take the case off and reposition to rectify that issue.

            I ordered my Otterbox the same day I ordered my new phone. I believe the Otterbox is a better value than the monthly insurance the phone offers. While I haven't had to "test" this one yet, my previous phone survived a couple years of use and abuse (including dropping a power drill directly on it).

              Comments about Otter Box OtterBox® Commuter Case for Samsung Galaxy S3, Black:

              Just got the new case for my Galaxy S3. It has four cons. First, if you ever need to take the phone out of the hard case you WILL end up breaking off most of the plastic clips around the edge. I got mine together and then seen a lot of dust and debris under the screen protector. I pried apart the case which broke off the clips. Only two are intact. Second, I could not keep the inside of the screen protector free of dust and debris. It attracts that stuff like a magnet. I ended up just removing the screen protector. I read some reviews that it scratches up easily anyway. Third, it takes a lot of effort to press the phone buttons on the edges. Plus there's a lot of play before the rubber touches the phone buttons. Fourth, it takes both hands to remove the phone from the holster. And sometimes I have to check if the phone is snapped in all the way. I'm thinking of getting an oversize soft holster to carry it.

                the back of the cover is VERY slippery and it almost negate the whole purpose of protection. It should be improved.
