Default recommended case for less then 15$

Hey guys,

I just received this nice phone from work and looking for a nice case to fit.
After moving to this phone from LG nexus 4 I had 3 cases there:
1) S line TPU gel basic.
2) rubbery soft touch and preety bulk.
3) bumper case.

I really liked the bumper case but don't want this on the s3.
Can you recommend a nice durable good feel and button pressing
and most of all beautiful in the budget of 15$?

Thanks alot folks

It all depends on how much protection you want. Amazon offers a wide variety of choices for cheaper than what you can get at the manufacturer websites or store kiosks (unless the is a good sale). I don't recommend the otterbox commuter due to the fact that it makes pressing the power button more difficult.

I'd say buy from You can get plenty of covers for that price, and they're very very good and high quality when compared to price of other covers.

I recommend the Ballistic SG or SG Max case. They are $16-20 on Amazon but if you shop Ebay they have some for around $10 or less. Best case you will get for your money.

I've tried about a dozen cheap cases between my S3 and Galaxy Express and I finally ended up with a fake Neo Hybrid case that I bought on ebay. Cost me under $10AU and after a few months use is still going strong.
No misspelled writing or sagging. It sits snug and aligns perfectly. I only had to increase button sensitivity for the volume buttons by adding a layer of tape on top of the buttons.
There are a couple of reviews floating around this forum somewhere if you need more info.
