    Anyone have this case and has had time to evaluate?

    Interested to hear how it would compare to the apples or S3 Lifeproof cases.

    Wow - that looks great! I'll be interested in hearing if anyone has it too!

    I found this review on YouTube. They like it.

    Wish this was available earlier. I already have an Otterbox case. But it does look nice.

    Obex and qi success

    It did not work with the official charging cover but works with the stock battery cover with the little after market qi sticker type receiver ($27). Going the sticker route lets you use any stock case and keeps the phone thin. Much better way to go.

    Got mine yesterday! Went with the black and red. Haven't had the chance to get it installed it yet. Holster is pretty sweet as well.

    Great let us know how you like it asap.

    I am interested in hearing your evaluation on "fit", "feel with screen touch", "quality".

    I have been wanting to purchase one but do not know if it is worth the money, maybe you could help.

    obex

    I just finished a week of hard dusty canyon hiking all across southern Utah, it survived drops, water, dust, heat, screen sensitivity is great, and the hundreds of photos are perfect through the case. It is a great case. The only issue I can see anyone having is it makes an already fairly big phone a little bit bigger. Not a problem for me but could be for some. Still slips into a pocket easily and is still very thin even in the case.

    I finally got mine put on and I have to say, it is an amazing case. Water proof, dust proof, impact resistant. I am impressed (not an easy thing to do). It is a little pricey, I ordered mine with the holster and added 2nd day delivery for $104 and change, but well worth it. I was going to do a full review, but it has already been done Seidio OBEX Review Pics, Vids and Written Analysis and a much better job than I would have done! My bottom line - if you want to protect your device without a lot of added bulk, this one is for you.

    A great case for all those times Poogling goes wrong.

    Got mine after reading this thread. Pluses - very robust, dirt and dust proof for sure. Standard headphones fit just fine, but there's an o-ring headphone jack extension cable that allows you to retain the water proof capabilities while plugged in. The size will take some getting used to, but it's far more substantial now with that case than it was alone. The only issue i've had so far is that downward swipes are harder to trigger. There is too much plastic above the notification area, so it's hard to grab it every time. Otherwise, its a winner.
