I'm upgrading my phone in a few weeks, and I'm looking to buy my next otter box. I bought this one in the bright green from a kiosk in the mall the day I got my S3, put it on, and never took it off. I will admit, the rubber part has seen better days, I have a habit of running my nails along the sides between the rubber and the hard plastic, and I accidentally ripped the charging port flap off a while ago. only within the last month or so have the corners started to fray. I wish I could say I was better with my electronics, but I'm not, I have dropped my phone a handful of times (several times when onto cement from waist height). But it's okay, because of my OtterBox, my phone is 100% scratch free. It's basically like new, even the screen (which I have no screen protector on) is scratch free! Unfortunately there is not a case for the Xperia Z, so I will be getting the S4 just so I can make sure it's protected. Well worth the investment.
