This is going to be a long review. After I purchased an Otter Box case for my iPhone 4S, I didn't like how it fit. And there were some problems with the case. I decided to return it. Then I searched online and in stores for cases. I came across this case and looked into it. I decided to buy it. Even with little reviews to work with. First of all, it was hard to open; it took me at least 20 minutes to figure out how to get it apart I was struggling. After that, feeling the case in my hand you could tell that it was made of cheap plastic. Unlike the OtterBox case the rubber silicone is in the inside instead of the outside. Making the device slippery when set down and in your hands. But unlike the OtterBox case, this case completely covers the phone including the speakers on the bottom but leaves small openings on the front so the sound comes out. It doesn't affect the sound at all when using the speakerphone. This case does have a plastic cover on the screen like the OtterBox and it comes with the back cover that you apply. What I really like about this case is that it just completely protects the phone from dust and water I would say it protects more than the OtterBox case. But what I don't really like about it is just how cheap the plastic feels. But with the shock absorbent silicone, if my iPhone does fall on a hard surface I would rather have the plastic break then the iPhone. So a plus about it, is at the silicone is under the plastic making sure that the iPhone does not break if it falls. And another thing when putting on the case, you have to make sure you put it on right if not you can feel that it is a tight fit for the iPhone 4S. Because of the plastic that is made out of a lot of lint and dust does attracted to it.Read more ›

I love the case in style -- my otterbox defender didn't last very long as the silicon pulled away from the phone and ripped. However, this case creates a horrible echo for the person I am talking to. I, on the other hand, am blissfully unaware and can talk echo-free. We have done a lot of experiments to try to figure out what the problem is. The echo they hear goes away if I remove my trident case or if I put them on speaker phone (something they also find annoying, but at least no echo). When I put the case back on in the same call, echo returns for them (same with taking off speaker phone). I returned the case to Trident and they sent me a replacement. Same problem for the people I talk to. Just because you don't hear an echo doesn't mean that the person you are talking to hears free and clear. If you google "Trident case echo" you will see that I am not the only one who has experienced this situation. Bummer, because I really like everything about this case except makes it impossible to use as a phone.

I used to use a simple, plastic case on my phones, but I always ended up being disappointed by how easily the cases would crack or worse: Would allow the phone to crack. (I am very clumsy with my phone)
So, when I decided to purchase an iPhone, I knew I had to get total protection for my pricey investment. I've researched on what types of covers are out in the market, compared the specs, and compared the prices. After all that research, I've found that this Trident Kraken II case was my ideal case.
The price was very reasonable for how much it protects. So, I had pretty high expectations when I received my own.
First, I've discovered that putting on the cover was a little tricky. The box contained the instruction using some illustrations, and additionally provided a link to their YouTube video tutorials on how to apply the case, and what can be done.
The box contained 2 different screen protectors numbered differently but the instructions weren't clear on what to do with them. I had to assume it was for both sides. After that you put the rubber sleeves on, and on top of that, you had to clamp on the hard case. You have to make sure you've aligned one side of the hard case correctly, in order to completely clamp the two case parts together.
I've been using this case for over 2 months now, and after dropping it a few times (accidentally) and found that it has not disappointed me. No scratches, no cracks, no internal damage whatsoever.
Some people might complain about how "bulky" the phone will be after placing the case onto the phone, but it really does not bother me at all. I rather like the bulkiness because it makes it easier for me to find my phone in my bag.
In conclusion, this product has met my expectations and beyond. If anyone was looking for a reliable protective case for their iPhones, I definitely would share my input about this product

I'm so glad I bought this Trident case for my iPhone 4S! It's sturdy, has cool accent colors, and even comes with a belt clip.

Pros:
• Metal stand in back is a great feature and doesn't get in the way when not in use (works with multiple angles)
• All the buttons work perfectly and give a nice click when pushed
• Comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in case you have bulky headphone/earbud cords and multi-angle belt clip that holds the phone securely to your belt (NOTE: Make sure to attached the belt clip to the iPhone with the front facing the clip. The metal stand in the back gets in the way, so the clip is designed to attach to the front of the phone)
• Nice port covers for extra protection from the elements
• Case is easy to grip and hold onto, less likely to drop as a result
• Speakers are on bottom of iPhone, but this case cleverly redirects the sound to the front when installed properly
• Doesn't block camera, speakers, etc. (I've seen reviews of other people saying that it's hard to hear the owner of the phone with this case installed when they're on a call, but I don't use this phone for calling; it's strictly for apps, surfing the net, etc.)
• Built-in screen protector and no problems with touch screen sensitivity
• Charger port is big enough to allow for 3rd party off-brand chargers
• Doesn't seem to affect wi-fi signal/range
• At less than $10, this case was a steal, especially for an out-of-date iPhone!
