alright guys well I've been looking for some cases for a LONG time now and finally decided to get the cyclops case from Trident after hearing some great things about them. Which I have decided to go with a simple pros/ cons list. Pros: -case is a VERY tight fit..no wobbling at all that is on some otterboxes and others. -case is sealed pretty well..other than the pre cut holes i find this thing to be well sealed and not cheaply made. -feels "right in my hand" and by that i mean its not too grippy and not too loose..pretty sure this thing wont fall out of my hand anytime soon..but it wont also cling to my pockets like my sprint case did (shudders). -port protectors do their job well..however the bottom one looks as if with time it might loosen but right now it stays in place well. the headphone jack port is tough to get out but i found that if you tile the phone downward it comes out easily...better to be too tight than loose am I right? -camera, screen flash, front camera are all protected bery well...doesnt look like theyll be scratched anymore than they already are. -feels durable in your hands and doesnt feel that cheap. -colors are great to have as a choice Now for the cons Cons: -pictures with flash come out blue colored..I have researched this online and it seems that this is common everywhere..however you could just use a needle and pop out the flash protectors and theyd still be protected...although it still doesnt excuse them from not doing extensive studys into seeing if their was any other type of protector that doesnt alternate the picture. -screen does have a SLIGHT rainbow effect...again this is another common problem as it seemse that the screen wont stick all the way and does leave some rainbows...HOWEVER this is very minimal and hasnt hindered my viewing of web pages or videos etc. (you can order a premium replaceable screen protector on Trident's website for $3, Ive heard that it for the most part fixes this problem). -the back isnt painted ALL the way..and by this i mean that their are some areas that are white when they should be grey...however they are only about 1 millimeter big and thus thats actually probably too much to ask for from any "small" company. -it isnt completely water resistant (holes on the back that are their for design and the kick stand is exposed). although I think for this con you should have to pay more to get this feature than what i got it for. Now..I believe that this is one of the better cases around compared to some of the big brands like sedio otterbox etc. Also for the price..which is $27 I believe that this is the best deal for anyone looking for a medium sized case...offers about as much if not more protection than the commuter which for the protection and price ($35) is not the better deal in my opinion. Price $27 (from Meritline.com...they are having a sale on all versions of this case with free shipping..plus you can get a free priority shipping from Tridents facebook page) regular price is $35 i believe on tridents website Quality: par with the Commuter if not better (protects the front side more, feels great and durable etc) feelings about ordering: I ordered last Monday and it came in Today (Monday) with regular shipping so a week..I believe thats good considering I live all the way in the south and I believe the place is in Ny. they also kept me up to date with frequent emails assuring me when it was processed, shipped etc. variety: Exceeds the norm of most "tough' cases with the colors: red, orange, white, green, black, and blue. (camo purple etc are coming out later i believe..check their facebook page as they hold votes on the wall frequently). Overall: definitely recommend it at least since i got it for under $30...mainly its a steal compared to what else is out their..also it looks like the companys doing a great job overall. oh and I'll be sure to post updates as time wears on to see long term usability. ( oh and please og easy as this is my first extensive review I've done..tips would be greatly appreciated). (pictures coming soon).
