I have the aviator UAG. Color isn't great, Gunna get the blue one instead sooner or later. As far as everything goes, great protection, solid feel, all around good quality. Little slippery on the back tho.

So I just got my UAG case and I love it. It does feel a little slimmer than the commuter. I feel as if it is a bit less protection from the otterbox, but it feels so much better in the hands. I saw a drop test on youtube with this case and seems pretty good.

I have both and I always find myself going back to my UAG. It fits better in my opinion and has a much thinner profile. The small raised areas on the back corners help it from sliding around when its on its backside on a flat surface. The otterbox on the other hand is slicker they the naked phone itself. The UAG also comes in and out of pocket easier. Lol my advice is extremely one sided, but its some food for thought.

I personally am a otterbox fan I currently have the following otterbox cases for the s3

-gun metal grey / white defender

-orange / black / realtree camo defender

-red / black defender

-white / gunmetal commuter

-purple / pink commuter

I switch these cases out like switchimg out my underwear
YES THE COMMUTER CASE at first is hard to press the buttoms but the more you use it the better and easier it becomes

I also love otterbox customer service always friendly and have no problem exchanging out your case for you or trying to work out something

Ok so I think I got a defective UAG case. The power button on the case gets stuck when I push a little too hard which sends my phone in a bunch of bootloops. Contacted the seller and hopefully I get a replacement

With the case off press the button outward from the inside, slip the phone in and press the power button again, thats to line up where it should be. Thats how i use to do mine then it worked great after

Thanks that actually seems to fix it. Also, I thought I had read that this case was really hard to take off. But I take mine off easily. It doesn't feel lose or anything.

After reading reviews and seeing how my wife's iPhone otterbox has held up (she's on her third replacement), I bought an uag yesterday. They look very rugged, kinda like a toolbox.
