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.

Exactly as Advertised and it Fits Perfectly!

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

      The case installed with ease. I was expecting a struggle but it went smoothly and quickly. It does exactly what you say it does! I thought it might grab the fabric of my pocket, but it slides right into my pocket and purse with ease. It gives me a more secure grip on my phone. Before, I was afraid it would slip right out of my hand. I also had problems with pushing the buttons by accident, now it takes a conscious effort to push them. Yeah! I had a concern about having to open the dust cover to charge the phone. It is easy and presents no problem. I also like the color I have choose. It is just perfect. I have not dropped my phone yet and hope I never do, so I can't comment about that protection. The screen protector was easy to install and I don't even know it is there. Job well done!!

          I have only had this case for about three weeks. It is a little slick to handle but once you get used to it. It is a very nice case. I really like how slim it is. I have dropped my phone three times and no damage to the case or the phone.

                  This product is good. The only issue is the rubber part of the case lost elasticity

                    This was a replacement Otter box as my original became stretched out and wouldn't fit the belt clip. This unit is now too small for my belt clip holder and I had to go out and buy a universal holder from a discount store. I didn't save any money.
