I bought this with my Samsung Galaxy S3 back in late November (so 6 months ago) and it has done a fantastic job of protecting my phone. I have dropped my phone multiple times while this shell was on it and the phone is in perfect condition.
The only problems I have had with it is that dust seems to build up on it very easily, especially the screen, and the rubber/silicon outer cover has been wearing out very easily. I barely ever remove it, yet it is peeling away from the case on it's own. And now the cover flap for the Micro USB port has come off.
Also the screen cover quickly builds up a lot of dust inside the case and it has a couple of good scratches on it. Better than on my phone, but it seems like it could be a bit tougher for what you pay for it.
Overall I am happy with how well it protects my phone, but very disappointed by the durability of it, especially the outer rubber cover. My phone is safe, but the case won't survive the 2 years or so that I will be using this phone.
I doubt this case will last more than 8 months to a year. Which is truly disappointing given the cost.
Pros: High quality, protects phone thoroughly
Cons: Not durable, seems to be falling apart

Will this case work with an extended battery?

I believe the extended batteries on the Galaxy S3 make the back extend out further than the standard battery.
If the battery causes the back to be bigger then no, not at all. It just won't work.

Do I need to use the built in screen protector?

Is is it possible to remove that and use my own?
The screen protector is built into the front part of the case. It is possible, I am sure, to break it out of there, but then you will be losing a lot of value of this case I think. It does a good job of protecting the screen and it doesn't interfere with the image quality.

Attachment hole for wrist strap?

I am wanting to know if this case has a bar to feed a wrist or neck strap attachment onto it. I'd like the extra security when I am taking a picture or just holding my phone in general.

Thanks for reading.
It does not have that, but it is tough, so unless you are dropping it where you would lose it permanently (i.e. a waterfall, a gorge, a canyon, a river, etc) then you really don't have to worry about it being damaged by a drop. Heck I have accidentally thrown mine on a hard surface (don't ask) and the phone still looks like it is in mint condition.

Is the rear camera lens protected?

I work in a heavy dust environment and i was wondering if the rear camera would be some how protected against dust. Does the rear part of the case a clear plastic cover to keep water and dust out?

is the front camera protected as well? thank you!
It doesn't have a cover directly over it, but it has the case all around it that gives it a quarter of an inch of walling around the lens. It makes for a very small opening for something to actually hit the lens. You really don't have to worry about the lens at all. I have had mine for 6 months and the lens hasn't been touched by anything.

Can the ratcheting belt holster detach from the Defender series case for Galaxy S3?

Sure, you can take the phone out of the case and slip it into the holster. But it won't stay in place on its own, given that the phone is much smaller than the case and the case is what holds it in place in the holster. Maybe if you duct tape it a bit...
