The good: This phone case does exactly what it set out to do. I've torture tested it, as I am a manager for a retailer that carries this product. I've taken it down a waterslide, and gotten some excellent video. I had my delivery driver run over it with his truck. I've thrown it off of my roof. My phone was fine, and the case survived the torture. The Otter Box Armor for GS3 passed all of these tests with flying colors. In fact, the case I did this all to is sitting on my counter at work, to show when I tell customers the story of that case.
The bad: Call quality is a major problem. The membranes over both the mic and the earpice block so much sound that you can't hear them, and they can't hear you. A bluetooth headset is a MUST if you own this case. Also, the lanyard broke within a month...but it's hard to make a rugged lanyard...
The Ugly: The hinge on my case broke within 6 months. I expected more from an Otterbox that claims to be that rugged. Sure, I did put it through some stress, but it was normal wear and tear that did it in. Fortunately, Otter will stand behind their product, and therefore sent me a replacement when mine bit the dust.
Pros: Durable
Cons: Low quality, poor call quality

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.
Short answer: No.

Long answer: The seals are designed differently on the two cases. In all honesty, the seals are better on the Armor. With that being said, you still need to take care to not damage them when you have the case apart. Also, be careful to not lose the little rubber gromits on the earphone port and charger port. Mine did come off once...but then again, I was messing with it. Should be fine under normal conditions.

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

Well?
This case will only support an extended battery if it doesn't extend the back of the phone.

An alternative to extended batteries that will work with this case is a portable power bank.
