    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.

        Best protection for our phones ever found. Can't tell you how many times a phone would have been destroyed had it not been for the case. Both my wife and I have the OTTER for our phones and love them.

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

          I wanted a case that was slim enough to slide easily and comfortably into my pocket and provide adequate protection. The commuter does both splendidly. The only issue I have is that the side buttons require a lot of pressure for them to work. But I got used to it. I really like the way it feels in my hand- solid and comfortable. I am extremely happy with it so far.

            It's my second otter box purchase.. This case it good when you are going out and do not need a bulky case. although I find it a little slippery.. my other case which has the rubber glove on the outside offers a little more grip.. but it's to hard to place in your pocket. So i use differet cases for different applications. Thanks Otters .. you've done a good job :)

                I purchased the Galaxy S3 Commuter case to replace the old one. Well it was only 5 months old. I like the slim line construction of the Commuter case, it is not bulky which allows me to place it in my front pocket. I am a high school student and I do not like having my phone out/ or in a clip holster. The product is average quality due to the outer gel case stretching which causes it to loses its integrity. This product should last longer than 4-5 months for the amount of money one pays.

                    I like the protection the cover provides, but the edges and back side are very slippery to hold. Would recommend some tacky feel to the outside edges.
