Just thought I would share what just popped up on amazon.

Update (1-8-2013) Just in case anyone owns a Note 2 they have some available for order. The design is different with customizable vents. Note 2 thread below.

Update (9-16-2012) Here is a link to a great review by Mobile tech.

http://www.mobiletechreview.com/ubbt...p?Number=43188

Update (8-23-2012): Sorry for the late review but looks like many people beat me to it. I have had the case for a little over a week and I am still very impressed with the quality, design and feel. I don't think there will be any other case on my GS3 besides this one. Its just too nice.

The case doesn't add a lot of thickness and just feels absolutely great in your hands. The side buttons are very easy to press and the volume button has very good grip due to the jagged design the volume button was given. Worked out great the other night while in bed and I grabbed my phone in pitch dark and was easily able to tell which side was up due to the volume button design. A couple of others cases I own I had trouble with this feat.

There was just 2 issues I ran in to at first. First was that my Skinomi screen protector did not last with this case. It started to peel up on the sides due to the cases perfect all around fit. I have not put the screen protector on yet that came with the case but if you happen to already have one on your phone you may have the same issue. The second thing was that the case felt kind of slick when I first received it but after a few days that went away.

I would post pics but there are so many in this thread already that I don't feel it is needed. Overall everyone should buy this case if they like the industrial look and want one of the best cases available for the GS3. Read through the entire thread and you will find some more great in depth reviews with pics.

Looks interesting. Can't tell from pictures of course. But doesn't look like the camera is protected to much more the front of the phone.

I look forward to reading the review.

It was the best case I ever had when I owned a iPhone for a very short amount of time. So hopefully the GS3 version is the same.

I saw a review on YouTube and it looks like its only one peace that you slide you phone into. I'm worried that if i dropped it the phone would pop out of the case and smash

Nice! For those who are going to review this case, if you can please cover whether or not a full screen protector fits with the case. From the pictures it looks like it can't but it's hard to tell with these hybrid cases

I've tried out a number of cases now that looked good but in the end I keep coming back to my otterbox defender with an invisishield Hd screen protector instead of the one it comes with. I like the look of the UAG case but I just doubt it could protect as well as my setup right now
