4.0 out of 5 stars Close fit, 3 July 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Case-Mate Tough Case for Samsung Galaxy S3 - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I previously had an aluminium metal case on a Galaxy S (mark-1), and it kept the phone in very good condition. Hopefully this will do the same; the Tough Case is in two parts - a silicone inner "glove" with a harder plastic shell aorund the outside. It's actually such a close fit that trying to fit the two parts seperately makes it almost impossible to get the phone inside, so you're better off just pushing the phone inside and to hell with it. Partly this is due to the large rubber pads that fit over the power and volume rocker buttons - you can't actually touch the buttons themselves anymore once the inner sleeve is in place - just the rubber covering them - but it doesn't interfere with the operations.

Once installed, the silicone seals around the top and bottom (with cutouts for the headphone jack, USB socket and camera etc.), while the rigid plastic fits around the sides. It also provides a small lip on the top so that if left face-down, the screen won't be touching any flat surfaces - although the Gorilla Glass in use on all the Galaxy models is extremely resistant to scratching anyway.

I wouldn't dare try to squeeze a £500 pound phone into that case, not in a squeeze, no way, Ive had that problem with other cases, which means you can damage the phone.

The S3 Otter-Box case is a better solid protective range; very solid I wouldn't use anything else, and you do not need to squeeze the phone..

Based on looking at the S3 Otterbox "Commuter", I think you'd have exactly the same issues you describe. It looks identical to the Casemate case, right down to the large rubber pads over the buttons.
