I bought two on Sunday, they arrived Tuesday morning.  Quickest delivery and service I've had for a long time.



Same trader as me, I know what you mean by fast. Less than 24 hours from click of the button to in my hand


Same experience with me too. I clicked Buy Now on Thursday and paid and Saturday I get the package :) awesomely fast. Feels like he is my next door neighbour lol

Here's a photo I've just taken of my S2 Sena black leather case next to the S3 with the ROCK cover.



Is it possible to post the link to the trader that you bought the case from?

@nofam, are you having a lend of me, or are you genuinely interested in knowing what *my* SGS3 looks like front on?  I've got a black splotch on my screen which I wouldn't have known about had I not run the test (*#0*#).  I wish I hadn't run the test.


 

He he a bit of both, but yes, I would like to see how the colour of the case matches the bezel, and how much bigger it makes the phone look etc. . . . .If you don't mind. Embarassed




Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone - kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

Well I'll make you all sick and tell you that with moderate calls and little screentime and push email on, I have got from 8am to 4pm with using just 10% of my battery and I got 2.2 days from my last charge before that :)

Ok, the front view isn't very good.  I've got a God awful screen protector on. Hate it. Doesn't fit well. Wanted something immediate while I waited for my o'seas order.  Same with this case. I've got a custom leather one coming, but it'll likely take a month.  So this is to tide me over.

That is amazing! I am still struggling to get past one day, I'd say my device is flat at or around the 15hr mark on a normal day, in heavy usage it lasts no more than ten.

I'm not complaining. Because its miles better than the old sgs1 I came from.

Just saw this thread and had to sign up.  The things we do while we wait for the S3.  Might get knocked for mentioning this but I too am waiting for my Pebble Blue SGS3 from Noel Leeming.  Will post up pics and any updates if or when I get the device.

Oh where's my manners.  Sup Geekzone!! :-)

So theres an update for the SGSIII already, Source here 

Any one here have an imported device? cant see the local telcos rushing this out as it appears to be a minor "stability improvements" update.

So you don't like the Rock cover then? It looks ok from the back. Does it not fit well?

The case is fine. It fits very well.  I like that it doesn't cover up the top and bottom sides of the phone. It's very light, the phone snaps in and the case holds the phone firm but it's not so tight that you struggle to remove it.

My preference is a soft leather pouch.  But I didn't want to leave the phone without any protection while I wait for my order arrives.

I have my phone in and out of arm bands, back packs, hydration packs. It gets moved around a lot. So I prefer to have a little extra protection for it. And prefer the pouch over a case so that it's completely protected (as much as you can).

This particular case is one that appealed to me due to it's low profile and lightness, and because it wasn't rubber.  It still looks classy (IMO).  

I'm all for it, it's just not going to be my long time solution for protection.
