Samsung Galaxy S3 OtterBox Defender Case Review
We took this case for a test with a real phone. Watch the drop test video below.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has to be the hottest smartphone around the world and that fact does not look like it will be changing anytime soon. I am sure that you will all agree that the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is not anything you can laugh at. It is down right expensive. Even if you get a 2 year agreement, the Samsung Galaxy S3 can run you, up too $400. That is a lot of money for a smartphone, so the smartest thing you can do is protect it. There is a lot of different Samsung Galaxy S3 cases that you can buy, but when you want total protection and peace of mind then your only option is the Otterbox Defender Case for the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Just like all other Otterbox Defender Cases, the one for the Samsung Galaxy S III breaks down into four pieces. The outer rubber, shock absorbing layer that wraps around the two inner hard shell pieces with a built-in screen protector. Otterbox knows that a built-in screen protector is optimal for maximum screen protection. Since the screen protector on the Otterbox Defender Case for the Samsung Galaxy S III is built-in, it is thicker than a regular screen protector that is sold separately. The built-in screen protector is just tichker and tougher. End of story.
Now, the next best thing about the Otterbox Defender Case for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is that it comes with a belt clip holster. To me it is not just something that someone could use on their belt. I have found that it also works well on my car sun visor while I drive and I have seen women who clip the holster on their pocket books. The belt-clip can also act as a kickstand (see product video for more info). Those are a few examples of the convenience of the included holster. Of course it also works awesome on a belt.
Once you have your Samsung Galaxy S3 inside the Otterbox Defender Case and snug in the belt clip holster you can see how well protected it really is. There are not to many Samsung Galaxy S3 cases out there that can provide this kind of protection, and not to many companies out there with the Otterbox reputation of excellence.
Check out the video that we made. It happens to be a Samsung Galaxy S3 (a real phone) dressed in the Otterbox Defender Case and we take it for a drop test. Watch what happens next.

You know mine is in better condition than that dude's otterbox in the video!! I have always wanted an otterbox, i cannot stop thinking about it, but not after the reviews. my husband loves his for his iphone5. do you think there is a difference in cases fit for a particular phone? You know his belt holster clip thingy is always breaking and he gets me to find him replacements quite often. nuff said. by all.l tc, and answer my questions if you can, please. Thank you,
So save YOUR MONEY AND TIME. Plus no waiting for it coming in the mail. Worth getting since the phone (galaxy S3) cost a lot of $$$.
It needs to be provided with a belt loop that cant come off when one is active it tends to pop off
Nice try but ultimately a fail!
