Using this case now on my gs3. It definitely adds bulk but it's not too bad and I personally like it more since the phone is pretty thin on its own.
To those who have issues pressing the power on and volume buttons on the side, I did too until I adjusted the cases. It took an hour of doing it over and over again but after sliding it in the perfect area it is actually easier to press the buttons th an if the case wasn't on. It just takes a ton of work to get it on and on correctly.
I have yet to actually drop my phone but you can tell it's pretty durable.
I have the otterbox defender for the iphone 5 and I think the size is just right for me. The buttons are a little bit harder to push compared when there was no case, but still ok for me. My gripe is when typing. Its harder to type the letters on the left and right edges of the keypad because my fingers keep on hitting the casing.
I have this case now for over a month and the silicone has gotten really loose. My dad has the same problem. It seems as if it would protect the phone but is really annoying when the edges have become really loose. Also, I have only taken the case off one time.
I don't have a problem pressing the buttons or anything at all.

What is with the buttons hard to pressed with the case? I have had the case for over 4 months and, yes, I do agree that the side buttons require a little bit more force to press. But, once you used it over time, it became just fine. The mechanism just need time to "rough" out. All in all, a very good case in that it is not too bulky, yet it is good protection against typical pocket fall. I dropped mine just several times and nothing is broken (as far as I am aware, I hope!!!).
I have the case and the buttons definitely become easier to press after the first couple weeks. It was never that hard to push in the first place, actually kept me from accidentally hitting the buttons.
but, it's thinner and cheaper, yet it doesn't have a popular brand name associated with it.
I use the A-Case as well, and it's awesome! I use a full body skin from Best Skins and a case that works well it, is at the top of my requirements list. The A-Case works perfectly as it doesn't pull up on the edges of the screen skin and fits snugly despite the added layer of the back skin. It looks great, professional, clean, has good grip while still slides in and out of my pocket easily (no lint collecting), and best of all...the price is under $10.
...oh and no problems with button pushing, and/or the camera being affected.
