Atomic – What a Color!

*I received this phone cover to facilitate this review. All opinions are mine alone. sent me the OtterBox for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Commuter Series in Atomic. Yes. Atomic. That’s that minty-fresh green color! I really love the color of this phone cover. It’s bright and eye catching, which means I can pretty much always find it when I’m looking for it.

OtterBox For Samsung Galaxy S3 Defender Series

This phone case has three layers of protection for your Samsung phone. A thin plastic sheet covers your screen. Next there is a thick black rubbery case that wraps your phone for shock absorption and safety. Third, the polycarbonate shell protects against those accidental drops and bumps (if you have kids, you totally understand!). Otterbox is well known for its exceptional protection. This case not only protects your phone but looks amazing in the process.

All the ports are covered. Here are the listed features via…


  • All buttons are fully functional through the case
  • Exposed silicone corners dissipate impact away from your device with added bump and shock protection
  • Sleek, stylish design
  • Smooth outer layer allows case to slide easily into your pocket or purse
  • Silicone plugs provide access to audio jack and USB port
  • Self-adhering clear protective film, cleaning cloth and installation card included

Covered ports!

Mostly, I adore this case. Yes, you heard an implied “but” there. The first feature says “All buttons are fully functional through the case”. I’m so sorry, but this is not completely true. I had a lot of trouble with the button to turn the phone on. You know, the button that activates the phone when you first pick it up and wish to place a call or check your messages/emails? Yeah. I’m not sure if it is because the case is so tight on this phone or what. I know that my hands are not very strong, and that the arthritis makes it hard to push buttons. This button was almost impossible for me to push with that case on. This was the only problem I could find with the phone case.

If you don’t have arthritis, this is a wonderful case. It does protect your phone (I dropped my phone in the kitchen shortly after putting this cover on, and watched it bounce twice because of the gummy inner protection liner, with it’s exposed corners.) This case is worth every penny, however, if you would like to find a different case, carries plenty of other Samsung Galaxy S3 Cases!

  1. That case looks awesome – like it could REALLY protect a phone! Great review 🙂

  2. My husband has an Otterbox for his iPhone and he loves it. I considered getting one, especially since I’ve got 4 crazy kids, but wasn’t sure about the $. I’m still thinking on it. I supposed the extra $ for a good case is better than a cheap case and then having to replace a broken phone, huh? 😉
