Got to agree. The plastic-y materials that Sammy is using on the GS III just don't give me much confidence the phone will last for the duration of a 2 year contract.

I LOVE Casemate! They make the best cases. I've had at least one for any device in the family they make them for. Love them all!

I only do Otter Box. I paid $22 for mine on Amazon and its worth every single cent. If it wasn't for Otter Box, I'd walk around with Case Mate without a doubt.

It would be nice if on the parts where there was a cut out like the power and volume buttons it had rubber inserts that made it so they stuck out and were not so hard to use. I had cases like this befor and I think especially for that price the cheap addition of rubbery to give a good range of use from the buttons would be nice.

Ease of use 8/10
Actual protection 6/10
The case looks great but won't protect the phones top and bottom bezel since they're left exposed. OtterBox does it for me. Their white commuter series really looks great. http://m.otterbox.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S3-Commuter-Series/SAM4-GALAXY-S3,default,pd.html?dwvar_SAM4-GALAXY-S3_color=20&start=2&cgid=samsu
