Rated 4 out of 5 by Autistic Nephew Proof I love this case. My nephew is autistic, and.... he sometimes throws things, or gets them wet, etc. It has withstood his rather abusive attacks. My only concern is the clear cover. It is less than a year, and already after normal use, (Not including my nephew throwing my phone), It's not very visible anymore. I have submitted a warranty report today, and hopefully all will be good. I have nothing but praise for this cover, except for the screen, which, really, it's going to happen. I will let you know what happens. I give it a 10 out of 10 so far. :) April 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Customer Service. I have had this product a few times now. I work at a machine shop where we use a lot of oil based cutting fluids. I have received excellent protection for my Galaxy S III. My only set back is the Silicone Outer shell will expand after some time of use. However, with that being said, OtterBox has more than made up the difference with their warranty and customer service. At least with me they have. I will continue to purchase products from OtterBox in the future. February 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My case has worked well for me thus far. I would like to see a better means of removing the phone from the case that prevents the case clips from breaking. February 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the concept, not sure about design I love that the my S3 is well-protected. The foam inside the hard plastic does a great job keeping my phone from moving, and I feel that the case is extremely secure. I initially thought that an integrated screen cover was a great idea, but it's easily scratched (Thank you Otterbox for replacing the scratched cover!) and traps a lot of dust and other debris unless you keep your phone in a super pristine pocket.

I have a purple case and also a black defender case and they both need new screen protectors. Both are more than a year old. Can the clear plastic screen be purchased alone? Thank you for your assistance?
