Most Popular Samsung Galaxy S3 Cases
Samsung has manufactured their own take on the Galaxy S3 Flip Case which actually replaces the stock battery door with a new cover which looks identical, but includes a soft front flap that folds over the 4.8-inch display protecting it from scratches.
You'll find that these style cases along with most skins and hard cases will have full access to the Galaxy S3's camera, charging port, volume buttons, headphone jack and power button.
Samsung Galaxy S3 skins are pretty much your basic affordable silicone molded cases that wrap around the the back and corners of the device. There have been many improvements to these style cases for the Galaxy S3 since most don't offer much in terms of protection if takes a bad enough spill.
Many manufacturers are creating "Hybrid" cases which incorporate a silicone skin underneath a strong polycarbonate shell. These are especially popular since they keep a slim form factor while being able to absorb more shock than a stand-alone skin case.
Most are made from a strong polycarbonate and protect the front, back and corners of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Most people that work outdoors daily invest in a hard case for their Galaxy S3 as it protects against drops extremely well and some even offer a certain level of protection against the elements.
Holsters are convenient cases for the Galaxy S3 but generally do not offer much for support against drops unless purchased as a shell/holster combo.
Constructed from a hard plastic, these holsters feature a durable swivel clip that can be used to attach to your belt, purse or bag ensuring that your Samsung Galaxy S3 stays safe and secure inside the holster. When you need to access your GS3, simply unclip it and it's ready to go.
Unless you're extremely confident in handling your Samsung Galaxy S3, we'd strongly suggest using a shell and holster combo for added protection against drops outside the holster.
