Bought this case at best buy after purchasing numerous cheaper cases from ebay. And having replaced my phone from a horrible dropped and cracked screen, Wanted something that didn't add bulkiness to the phone. I also like the preselected color combination of magenta and purple. So far I have dropped it and no issues with the phone thus far. only issue is removing the cover that is tough.. specially since i usually change batteries when i run low. but not impossible. Overall its a great case for the GS3
This was a great investment!! My phone has survived many falls, it went for a swim in the toilet and it's still in perfect condition thanks to my Commuter Case!!!! My only concern with the product is the inside part for the case tends to wear out after some time. Luckily, OtterBox provides warranty for certain issues!
My commuter otterbox has been great! I drop my phone ALOT. After about the 50th drop my screen cracked. I should have purchased the defender series. It is a bit difficult to power the phone on and off, but other than that it is excellent!
Pros: High quality, Durable, protects the phone from frequent low impact drops., super easy warranty! they sent me a whole new case
I've had this case for over a year and it has worked awesome. I was rock climbing, dropped my phone off the side of the mountain and when I retrieved it there were no scratches and the screen didn't have a single chip on it!
I had an OtterBox for my old Blackberry and it protected it from drops and hits so when I got my S3 I bought an OtterBox for it as well. so far I have dropped my phone from my operators station about 10' on to a concrete floor as well as a couple times out of my pocket on to the pavement out of my truck and haven't had any damage to my phone. I will stick with OtterBox for my next phone as well!
Pros: High quality, Durable
Cons: it would be nice if it came in another colour.
If you use or have used an Otterbox you already know they do a great job of protecting your phone from the occasional mishap that otherwise can be devastating. My sole complaint is that they do not allow you to utilize larger (higher capacity) batteries. The back casing of your phone can be modified (cut the interior) to accomodate some of the longer lasting batteries, but it would be a lot easier if the company simply implemented "break-away" tabs inside the case. If you use a standard battrery then you do nothing to the case except put it on the phone, and if you use an extended life battery then you use a pair of pliers and "break-away" a few tabs so that your cover fits the thicker phone. Otherwise, you can't use an Otterbox with the exptended life battery. So my suggestion to Otterbox would be to include a standard back that has been modified to accomodate a larger battery, and still use their case...or to offer an Otterbox that fits once a larger back plate is used.
Great functionality of product when in use. I had a problem with my case (cracked). Submitted the claim as instructed and received notice of a new case being shipped within 48 hours. Had it within a week. Great customer service!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have used this case for almost a year now and it has saved me from many falls. This replacement case that I just got from Otterbox has more rugged rubber in it, that makes pushing the buttons somewhat more difficult. I love these products, because of the phenomenal warranty.
The Otterbox is simply the best protection for phones ever! I am klutzy and frequently drop my phone. This phone has taken some extremely hard falls on concrete, wood floors, etc. and the Otterbox makes my phone invincible to these falls. Even today, my phone slammed to the concrete while on a walk - the Otterbox took a few scratches but my phone is completely intact. Awesome product!
Pros: High quality, Durable, excellent value for the price
This case is good. Looks good, protects well, and fits in pocket nice. Sometimes the buttons take 2 presses to activate (power button, volume button, etc). I had an otterbox for my old HTC phone and never had this issue. It seems that they designed the buttons a little too short and they don't always contact your phone buttons.
I recently requested servicing from OtterBox for my Commuter Case. Truthfully, I was not expecting anything near the phenomenal customer service I was given. Not because my expectations weren't there, but I figured for the "price", I might just as well go and replace the item.
OtterBox's service was wonderful from the upload to the confirmation that a new product was being shipped to tracking and the product's timely arrival. Wow! I had to call to commend the service and of course the very happy and helpful person on the other side of the line was more than pleased!
My husband purchased the Commander style and is extremely satisfied. My son will be buying an OtterBox as well. I have a tendency to drop my phone and in my opinion the OtterBox cases are by far the sturdiest and the best value for the quality. Colours are great but more importantly the durability of construction. The only con to speak of was the black rubber tab at the base where the phone charger plugs in. This area might be better without any tab at all.
The only problem is the rubber taps to that flips back to plug up the charger and added the head gets worn out after time. Then it' breaks off, leaving those areas exposed to dirt and other debris to enter. Even on the side of where toggle, it's kinda of hard to press the toggle button through the rubber.
