After reading previous reviews I was hesitant to purchase this case. I purchased it anyway knowing I could return it. The two primary complaints I read were: 1.) that the screen protector was too small; 2.) the volume and power buttons were difficult to push... 1.) While the screen protector does not cover the entire face of the phone, it covers the entire screen it was intended to protect. The edges of the face are protected by the rubberized inner portion of the commuter case. In other words the front face of the phone is fully protected 2.) As far as the buttons being too difficult to press, I find it in my best interest to have the added resistance on the buttons. I can now throw the phone in my backpack or in and out of my pocket without fear of accidentally pressing the volume and or power button. Furthermore when I need to use those buttons I find them not difficult at all to use. Of course I am an outdoorsman and exercise regularly. I've spoken on the phone with several friends and asked them if there was any echo and they replied there was none. All of the ports are easily accessible. Also I find the phone easier to handle and use with the "grippy" plastic and rubberized surface. I highly recommend this case to anyone looking for added protection for their phone. For those concerned about the buttons being hard to press or the screen protector not being large enough perhaps a silicone bumper case would be a better choice. If (and when) I drop the phone I will be sure and update this review to let everyone know how it worked out.

Silicone Elasticity Issues

I had high hopes that this case would be very durable and offer great protection. I had seen the commuter series and thought it was nice. Thinking that the Defender would be even better and offer more protection for my new delicate Galaxy S3, I decided to sped a little more on the more expensive model, trusting that Otter Box would live up to it's reputation. I was very disappointed to find out that their reputation, in my opinion, is greatly over rated. The case was good at first, although a bit bulky and plain looking, but within a couple of months I started to notice that the outer silicone cover was starting to pull away at the corners where it should have been locked into a groove in the hard plastic shell. This condition continued to worsen until the silicon was completely coming off on one end and badly pulling away on the other corners. I wrote to Otter Box and explained my problem, provided a few photos in an email and to their credit they quickly sent me a replacement. With the second cover I was very careful not to put it in my pocket or let it get dirty but sadly the same condition was occurring after only a few weeks. I am very disappointed with the defender and think that, considering the price, it should be of much better quality. I also think there should be changes made to the design and/or materials. I've given up on otter box and gone with a different product that seems to be better in design as well as aesthetics. So far I am happy with the new case, and wish I hadn't spent my money on the defender.

    Comments about OtterBox® Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S III, Black:

    My commuter series Otterbox is very well made. Very good quality material. The protection it provides my S3 is perfect. I would recommend this to me friends with one caveat, the push buttons for the power on and for the volume control have to be pushed extremely HARD to activate those functions. I have the Otterbox installed correctly. This is why I gave 4 stars and not 5.

              Comments about OtterBox® Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy S III, Black:

              There is no protection for face of my phone. The rubber buttons on side are very hard/stiff, which make it very hard to push buttons on phone. I do like size and way phone fits, but overall not satisfied with cover. The person that assisted me with receiving a new cover was very nice and helpful. I would recommend the company, just not this cover.
