Why you should buy this product
The Aegis offers full protection with a creative design to keep the Samsung Galaxy S3 safe and unharmed without compromising its advanced functionality. Unlike Trident Case’s other series of cases, with the Aegis, the silicone layer is on the inside — in direct contact with the Samsung Galaxy S3 — with a hard polycarbonate shell on the outside. This is to prevent the easily-scratched back of the Samsung Galaxy S3 from getting damaged. It also makes the case easier to casually slide in and out of pants pockets.

Once it's on, it's great!
As soon as I got the S3, I knew I had to have a case for it. It's very light and a bit slick. I wanted a case that wasn't going to add a lot of bulk like an OtterBox, but still give good protection. I have to say that I'm very pleased with this case. The plastic frame will handle drops and the rubber means it will absorb the shocks. It won't slide off a table, feels good to hold and all the buttons work well.
My only gripe is the case is a PITA to get on and off. I became very frustrated putting it on when it first came. I had to YouTube how to do it. The power button rubber is a bit chewed up because of this difficulty in getting on and off. I take it as a good think overall however because the phone won't pop out. But just be aware that if you have to do a battery pull, it will be tough. After taking it out and together again 3x it's not as bad.
Will still highly recommend.
solid and plenty of protection
initially hard to put together

Good lookin' case
The moment I laid my eyes on this case I fell in love. It looked slick and cool. However, after reading about how difficult it was to assemble and how the volume control buttons can become a hassle, I began doubting. Nonetheless I took my chances and it was well worth it.
I did have a problem with the volume button control on the side. It allowed me to decrease the volume but it wouldn't allow me to increase it. BUT because of it's rubbery material you just have to pinch it out a bit and even mess around with it so that it aligns well with the actual volume buttons. I believe it will get stuck again in the future however it won't become a big deal. If you can't adjust it with the buttons there's always the way by just simply adjusting it on the touch screen.
Assembling the case onto the phone was definitely a hassle it almost felt like I was breaking both the phone and case. BUT DON'T WORRY. I found a wonderful solution! Just go on youtube.com and type "Samsung Galaxy S III- Aegis Installation Demo" It worked for me and I KNOW it will work for you.
I gave it a 4 star because of the problems I ran into and the screen protector that it came with wasn't all that great. It's either I suck at putting screen protectors on or I just got a bad one...I think i just suck at putting screen protectors on. I actually just wanted to buy a premium screen protector. :)
Overall the looks are GREAT! Got plenty or compliments from friends about how awesome it looks!!
The ONLY reason why I wouldn't recommend this item to a friend is because I want to be the only one among my friends with this sexy case. Other then that I would definitely recommend this to you all! :)
Appearance and features. Especially how it protects my unused ports from dust and lint oh and my speakers. :)
It also fits smoothly into my pockets. That actually worried me but don't worry guys! It wont get stuck!
Some of the features like volume control can get very annoying and installing the case was a bit difficult. But don't worry watch the youtube.com video on how to install this case.

I was very worried about dropping my new phone because it is VERY sleek .While I do like this feature, I didn't want it sliding out of my hand. This case is awesome !!! I love it ! The hard over silicone feature gives it the cushin against the phone, in case of a drop.

It was what it said it was. It came when they said it would come. Just in time because after I got the case on I dropped my phone out of the car door and onto the concrete parking lot. No chips dents nothing.. THANK YOU Trident!

Great case, a few isses
The case is great. It looks great and feels great and has a nice style to it. Unfortunately, getting the case on can be extremely difficult and the volume bumpers do not work well. They tend to hold down the volume buttons once you press them once. I ended up pushing part of the rubber cover under the plastic part to kinda push it out a little bit and it works fine now and doesn't look too horrible.
The screen protector is extremely difficult to place and wasn't able to get it on without the air bubbles, so i just left it off.
I wouldn't really recommend this case for this phone because of the volume button problem. I use my phone to play music pretty much every time I get in my car, so this is a big deal to me.
