    LOL good man! :thumbup: Phones these days are way too expensive not to protect them with a 15-20 dollar investment.
    And for some reason the glass on the S3 doesn't seem nearly as durable or impervious to drops the way the previous Galaxy phones were.
    I liked the motorcycle comment. LOL Spot on!
    Enjoy your S3....It's a great device!

    I use the Elago case and LOVE it. I also use an anti-glare screen protector which works great, but does knock the color off a bit from the screen. Probably going to upgrade to an xgear. But I do really love this case. And not just for the protection, but the feel. Solid and not slippery.

    No way!

    IMO these phones are way too slippery to use without a case. Go with a minimum protection case if you want to enjoy the beauty of your phone.

    I also use the incipio case from the VZW store. I like it a lot. Not too bulky or slippery. Goes in and out if pocket nicely.

    Not all of us were as lucky as you with the thunderbolt. Lol.

    Incipio was my second was but my first was a rocket fish snap together which looked great but busted open the first time I dropped it. My phone slid across the concrete face down scratching it. It was replaced under warranty for Kent ubiquitous the camera. Otterbox defender in atomic now.

    This was actually my first complaint about the GS3. I was having so much trouble reading Kindle in bed without it slipping all over the place. It's also so freakin' light and slim. I think it was designed with using a case in mind. There's really no reason not to. Cases can still be stylish, add essential protection/peace of mind, way less "slick," theres dozens to choose from now...I mean, you really can't lose. I just got a light little $10 matte/silicone case and I love it. Might upgrade eventually, but for now this works great.

    Had mine two weeks and still no case. I used to have a hard plastic case for my Droid 1 but that thing was a battleship compared to this and I eventually went naked with the D1 - two years of use and to this day there's not even the tiniest mark anywhere on it (I never dropped it, not even once).

    The S3 feels so slim and delicate that it would seem to cry out for a case, but then I think of all these complaints of cracked screens, absent any drops, and I think the S3 may be too thin and slender for a tight case that might end up actually adding stress to the frame.

    Now don't focus TOO hard on "all" the complaints over cracked screens. And your case theory, though probable, is still completely unproven with no hard evidence. Keep in mind, in that 22 page thread, there's only like 5 or so people that have had it happen (they just posted a lot). Remember when the iphone 4 had its reception issues? The world seriously almost exploded. 20,000,000+ of these phones have been sold, and the only way to hear about this is to dig through 15+ page threads on internet forums. Wish there was a way to track where those phones were made. But if THATS what keeping you from getting a case, well....to each their own.

    Personally I think cases MAINLY prevent chipping on corners and the battery cover flying off when dropped. Screen protectors are what will save your screen more likely than cases...
