First off, all ports are easily accessible. The charging and headphone ports have larger square cutouts with rubber flaps, leaving the easy to get into with the OEM mini-USB plug and pretty much even the L-shaped headphone jacks. The flaps won't open in my pocket so they're very well measured. I say this because my Translucent Teal Androidified CruzerLite TPU Case- For Samsung Galaxy S III will not fit the OEM charging plug. The cutout for the charging port is very small and requires much pushing, repositioning each time. Also, that particular TPU case would push in on all four sides of my Zagg HD shield I bought when first getting my phone. The TPU case is a good one IF you have no shield or buy the shields that only cover the screen and not the bezel. A small notice is that air pockets are created under the Android logo design and the back of the phone comes off when removing it. None of these issues occur with the Commuter case.
The materials are high quality. The rubber fits around the phone perfectly and the volume and power buttons align with the rubber casing as if it came from Samsung themselves.Read more ›
To describe this item, you need to realize that there are 3 parts to this case. The first part is a soft rubbery cover for the entore backside and sides of your phone. This is going to provide the cushining during falls. The second part is the hard plastic shell that snaps on over the rubber. This gives the phone a little "heft" and makes it easy to slide in and out of your pocket. It also is one more good layer of protection from hard falls or something falling onto it.
The third part is the scratch resistant cover for your phone. I can't remark on this yet because I havent used it. I am waiting for my new phone to arrive. My phone fell out of my backpack to the concrete and cracked the glass pretty good. This is why I decided to get this case. From the look and feel of this case I am absoultely positive that my phone would not be cracked right now if it had this case on it when it fell. I feel like an idiot for not having it protected, but you live and learn, right?
Now, about the "hard-to-press-the-buttons-issue". It't true that the buttons are harder to push. I don't think it's outrageously difficult but if you know anything about this phone its buttons are WAY too easy to press. Everytime I pull something up on my phone and try to hand it to someone to look at, one of the buttons almost always gets pressed (either the volume or he phone lock button) - extremely annoying.Read more ›
Anyway, it's a great case, and the only reason I can't give it five stars is the power button issue that reviewer LLBean mentioned. It is really, really stiff, and that takes some getting used to. Considering all the positives about the case, though, it's a relatively minor concern.
Despite the amount of protection that the case affords, it doesn't add an enormous amount of heft. It does mitigate some of the phone's sleekness (one of its main selling points), but that's the trade-off. If you want to preserve that sleekness, go for a thinner case (either gel or hard plastic), but keep in mind that those will protect against scratches, but not drops.
It fits beautifully on the phone. There are no gaps. Quite the opposite, in fact - getting the hard plastic over the underlying rubber sleeve can be kind of difficult, especially getting it over the volume and power buttons. If you think you'll want to take the case off regularly, don't get this one. Go with something like the Seidio Surface or Active, which are much easier to put on and take off.
UPDATE, 8/13/2013: The rubber cover that protects the charging port fell off yesterday. That's a bit disappointing, but everything I originally said in my review still stands.
After tried several times, I found this: the power button on the phone and the case, they are a little miss match.
I am not sure if this is my individual case, but hope it will help
After you put the soft cover on, when you need to put on the hard cover, insert the volume button part(left side of the phone) first and then push the power button side in to the hard cover, this help a lot in my case. I got all the buttons work very well.
If you really like the case, buy it and give it a try.

Fits well but the right on/off button is stiff and you really have to aim well to be able to press it though the casing's rubber button. Dropped it once thus far. seems ok.Published 12 days ago by Amazon Customer
