    I have a Ballistic case on my S3, and love it.. But I def am wanting to pick up the S4 Active when I'm available for upgrade, that way I don't have to worry about it getting messed up when I go kayaking or wheeling!!

    I have the T Mobile t399 or LTE , I bought it thinking it was a new model and I would be able to get a good case for it, Sadly not true, only cheap cases on Amazon or expensive cheap cases form Samsung. I really like phone , it does everything I want/ need in a phone but finding decent protection for it ????

    New iphone 5s arrived and went straight into the gorilla case, and 15 minutes later, came back out again !
    I have low signal in the main room of the house, always have had, unfortunately as the gorilla case has an aluminum skeleton, it was enough to totally block the low signal.
    Back to the Griffen survivor case. They've changed the design, and they now come with a spare screen cover. They've also redesigned the camera flap, it now rotates out of the way. A much better set up,mas the older type you had to hold the flap clear of the camera, and to be honest it was a right pain in the ass. As usual there's also a removable belt clip.

    I have used the case from Lifeproof on my iphone 4S for a while now. Waterproof, shock proof, dustproof. I ran over my phone w/ a skid steer, its been in water, construction sites etc., & my phone hasn't got a scratch. Only case for this guy.

    My brother uses Otter Box for his Iphone 5, it's really nice, 2 tons of crushing force, I believe, waterproof for up to 15? Feet? *check me* it's basically a Jeep in case form.

    Another vote for Lifeproof, I switched from Otterbox to Lifeproof for an iPhone4s after using Otterbox since the Blackberry days.

    I am now using a Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro...it's only a dual core phone, but its the right size for a rugged phone, the newer phones are just too large.

    I have not found exterior Armor I like, so I am making do with a IQ Shield screen protector, and the Maxpedition Smart Phone holster.

    got an O'box on my S3. It survived my dog chewing on it for a little while. Bought the "commuter" case for an old phone, it didn't last long.

    Just got the S5 active. It claims to be shockproof and waterproof right out of the box. Can sit in 3 feet of water for 30 minutes with NO CASE. Haven't tested it and probably wont. Probably won't be long before it gets dropped in the hot tub. I'll report back with my findings

    Screen protector is tempered glass and just a rubber surround for case

    I have the Incipio for my S4. Is ok. Is very sturdy, and fully waterproof. Problems are you can't talk on the phone. I was more concerned with ruggedness over waterproof, so I drilled or the microphone hole, and now people can hear me. Speaker phone is pretty much useless though unless you have it plugged in to some other speaker, like car radio, then it works Ok. It is pretty big, too. But I have dropped a bunch and it's definitely tough!
