    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 OtterBox® Commuter Case for Samsung Galaxy S3, Black:

        Though the case has protected my phone the rubber outter portion has not stood the test of time. Beside the fact My SQURAE wont work with the case on. The tabs quickly broke off and the case became enlarged and worn out. When I asked about the Guarantee, I was told they stopped giving free replacements. "Just my Luck". I am hopeful the next generation is more durable. For this kind on Money you would think you were getting a better quality product. Tossed it in the trash this morning.

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

            My review is more about the disappointment of the color represented online and the slow delivery. We paid extra for Fed-Ex 2 day delivery. The item was ordered over the weekend and we did not receive it until Thursday. We placed two orders the same day (from different companies) and selected 2-day shipping on each. The other order arrived on Tuesday and this one finally made it on Thursday. I wanted a very masculine case for my son who is beginning college. We chose the gunmetal gray and the picture of the color on the online was/is so much darker than what we received. The color of ours was a light gray and it did not have the masculine appeal we expected. Very disappointed. Also was not happy that the orange piece that went on first was already clipped together and we spent so much unnecessary time trying to get it apart to encase the phone. Too bad it did not come as two pieces. It was extremely difficult to get apart and took two people to get the job done. I would most certainly return it if I had the time but my son needs it for college and I could not return it and purchase another one in time. I will pass on Otterbox. Not sure how it will protect the phone. Does not feel or appear as strong as I had hoped.

            First Time Otterbox Customer

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

              I received the Defender series box today and installed. The pictorial instructions were less than desirable. When putting together the inner protective shell, I noticed that that one of the clips was broken. It's obvious that this will not be a case that I would want to open and close on any frequent basis. Over all, it looks like it will protect the phone during minor drops and bumps, but looks too rigid to absorb any major drops.

              Screen Still Shattered

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

                I bought this case from a retailer about 3-4 months ago, shortly after I got my new phone. I'm very careful about not dropping it, and do pretty well. I have dropped it a couple times, but today, I dropped it from two feet off the ground and it bounced off the corner then landed face down. My screen is so badly cracked that I can't remove the case or it'll just fall apart. There are glass shards under the plastic that I can feel. I'm not impressed at all, and would not recommend this at all. What use is the case if it doesn't protect?

                  I have always loved otterbox and the great customer service. However when I purchased my new otterbox for my galaxy s3 and put it on the clips broke on the inner shell. Not sure if I got a faulty product or what but i am disappointed that it broke the very first time I put it on.
