The case is easier to get off than my ballistic sg on the s3 was. With that said, if i drop it, it doesn't feel as if it will fly apart. The case has interfered with one of my L-shaped head jacks, and works with another.. i just use a simple headphone extender when i want to use those earphones.

Hmmm that might not fly then for me... I listen to music with my phone a lot ... my phone is essentially an Internet-enabled MP3 player that so happens to have a phone function built in lol.

I have the ionic case on mine wasn't too sure from the pictures but I like it and the circles on the back aid grip.

I also dropped it from about 5feet and it bounced on all 4 corners but the phone was fine!

Mate I answered you about headphones, check http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post37912172 I can recommend the tuff case too, it is a solid and very fair priced case.

I heard that it is a dust/lint magnet, is this true?

I'm running the seidio surface case. Expensive, but you can't beat the quality.

Second with mybatt.. Cheap and sturdy for the price. Get a good looking one for the less dangerous situations.

The best protection gives you MyBat! I have Wrapsol film and the Tuff case from MyBat and I think my phone is unbreakable.
