The case, without a doubt, protects the phone. However, the first claim Otterbox makes about this case is that it maintains full functionality. It does not. The hole around the front camera lens is too small and therefore it blocks light from reaching the lens. This lens is used as the sensor to determine whether or not the phone is being held to your ear, thus allowing the screen to be turned on and off when you are on a call. When you are on a call and need to take the phone away from your ear to use the number pad or go to speaker phone, too bad. The screen will not come back on unless you remove it from the case or find a very bright light to shine into the lens. Also the home, back and menu buttons are nearly impossible to press. If all you care about is keeping the phone safe until you use it, buy this case and take the phone out every time you need it. If you want a durable case that will allow you to use your phone as the manufacturer intended, wait awhile, maybe someone will build one, but Otterbox didn't.
Pros: Durable
Cons: very poor design

Does this case float

Based only on the video, it appears to sink like the brick it is.

Is there a set amount of times you can open and close the case?

wondering if case is like the lifeproof and only rated to open so many times before the seals are no good.
Since it's sealed with an o-ring, if you open and close the case enough, it's likely the o-ring will eventually wear out. How many times? I haven't seen any information on that.

Holster?

Does the Armor series come with a holster?
No...no holster for the armor series and I haven't been able to locate any type of after market holster it will fit in. It does have a flimsy little lanyard that you can let it dangle on from your wrist. I assume it's so you can swing it around and use it as a weapon of some kind, because it's about useless for carrying the phone conveniently.

Does the armor series for the samsung gs3 support an extended battery?

Well?
If your extended battery makes the dimensions of the phone any larger than the phone was when it came from the manufacturer, then no. The phone is a tight fit into the case.

Will my headphones plug into this case without any issues?

The lifeproof cases do not allow many headphones to fit into the jack of your phone. I was wondering your thoughts on the Armor Series regaurding this issue...
It depends on the manufacturer of the headphones. The hole for the jack doesn't allow some plugs to fit. You'll have to try it out to find out. I have been able to find some that fit without too much searching.
