    Overall, a good choice for a rugged case, June 15, 2012

    Although the Razr Maxx is supposed to be pretty sturdy, I am a legendary breaker-of-things and I wanted something more. I did a lot of research and looked at several different cases (in particular the Otterbox Defender series), and this one seemed to offer me the best set of features. I like that you can use just the inner, silicone sleeve (which you can buy alone – the Trident Perseus case), or you can add the outer, hard case for extra protection. I’ll mostly use the whole shebang, but will have occasion to use just the silicone sleeve.

    I had a little trouble getting the phone into both components with all of the controls lined up properly (it’s actually three pieces: the soft sleeve, the hard outer front with screen protector, and the hard back plate with stand), but once I figured out the trick, I’ve been able to take it in and out with ease. The hard case has control buttons that operate the phone’s power and volume buttons seamlessly, and I like that it has port covers to keep out dust and moisture. I’ve noticed very little difference between using the phone’s touch screen naked and using it through the screen protector. This case certainly makes a sleek phone a little heftier to carry around, but that’s a trade-off that’s OK for me. I also like that you can add some accessories; I particularly like the idea of the windshield car mount (but I haven’t used it so can’t say whether it lives up to its potential). I’d be interested in the tripod mount if the Razr Maxx didn’t have such a disappointing camera.

    There are two things I don’t like. The first is the aluminum media stand. The part that folds out is loose and often pops out a little, protruding slightly from the back of the case and making it hard to manipulate the phone in and out of pockets and holders. I understand that it’s removable so that you can attach the accessories, but that doesn’t prevent a design that would keep it in place. I also find it disappointing that it can only be used to prop up the phone in the horizontal position. I suspected as much from the photos, but I was hoping. If you try to stand the phone up vertically, it might stay up if you hit just the right balance on just the right surface, but it’s bound to fall over. I’ll need to get a separate vertical stand – I like to access the phone frequently in this position while I’m sitting at my desk and the phone is charging – and that’s an irritation.

    My second, bigger gripe is that they’ve configured the holster so that the phone can _only_ be inserted face-in. I understand why face-in is often more desirable, but it could very easily have been designed to allow insertion both face-in and face-out. Here’s my use case for face-out: I use a task tracker for everything, including my shopping lists, and I really, really wanted to be able to clip the phone to my shopping cart (there are ways) so that I could view the list and check off items as I go. I walk with a cane and it’s hard enough to negotiate supermarkets and mega-stores without trying to handle a phone in one hand. It’s this deficiency that makes me think I should have gone with the Otterbox; you can insert the phone into its holster face-out. I’ll have to investigate Trident’s bike rail holder (they call it a “clip” but it’s not clip-on and it only fits one particular diameter of rail), but it seems like too much overhead for taking on and off a shopping cart.

    Honestly, the deciding factors for me were that I liked the Kraken’s looks, especially the touch of color (I got green), and I sort of assumed the holster would work in both orientations, since Trident’s literature doesn’t call out the fact that it can’t. Plus, it’s called the “Kraken.” I’m a sucker for good design and branding, plus I have a fondness for cephalopods – mythical Norse sea monsters in particular – so this product hit a sweet spot. Overall, I think it’s a good case. I expect that for many people, my dislikes won’t make a big difference. If you need a rugged case, this is one you should seriously consider.

    P.S. There’s a little intellectual dissonance in the naming of the products, which I particularly like. Perseus fought the sea monster (although not the Kraken) and won Andromeda, but here the Kraken swallows Perseus whole :-)

    Decent case, executed poorly, July 11, 2012

    This review is from: Trident Case AMS-XT912-RD Kraken AMS Case for Motorola Droid Razr MAXX (XT912M) with Holster Bundle (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Ordered this case because it was a better alternative (I thought) than the Seidio ACTIVE case, which I had already bought but disliked because of the holster design. I ripped the built-in screen protector out in favor of a Zagg protector because of the issues I had heard about the Otterbox Defender with its built-in screen protector and dust.

    Unfortunately, after three or four months of use, the “T” shaped connection points on the case wore out – this morning the phone kept slipping out of its holster, and upon further inspection I saw that the case’s holster clip “T” point had broken off across the top of the “T” hole. The other side was fractured and would have failed as well.

    I am a very light user of the phone – in terms of abuse. I work at a white-collar, desk-based job that inflicts practically zero additional strain on the device, so it’s not like I work on a construction site or something.

    In my not-so-humble opinion, Trident needs a “v2.0″ of this case, where it reinforces the “T” connection point with some metal or something to prevent this kind of mechanical failure.

    If it was not for this fatal flaw, I would give the case five stars. Unfortunately, since I need to put the phone on a holster, I cannot recommend this case for holstering. If you want the case for in-pocket use, I think this is one of the best cases out there.

    Overall very positive experience with this case. If you’re buying it for the reasons I did I’d highly recommend.
    Ideal for: someone looking to have both an “around town” silicone that can be converted into a heavy duty case as necessary.

    Not going to mention size, with the Kraken AMS hard case around it obviously its huge. All heavy duty cases are.

    Pros:
    - versatility (Perseus case with Kraken AMS option, essentially)
    - fit/feel of it in Perseus skin. Nice and grippy to keep phone steady.
    - built in screen protector (probably overkill) much better then expected. Highly responsive and doesn’t seem to kill rez as expected.
    - buttons on hard case are very clicky (credit “Day Deal” reviewer for word). Highly responsive.
    - ability to use without the belt clip (I don’t) but still have a heavy duty case. Generally belt clips integrated on other options.
    - straight headphone jacks do fit with Kraken hard case on (bent probably not)
    - ability to buy new Perseus skin for either damage replacement or just color choice

    Cons:
    - harder to get Kraken hard plastic on and off then expected (and appeared in “Day Deal” vid).
    - Perseus silicone (in black) does attract lint as reported (but not excessively)
    - belt clip (for those who use religiously) not being integrated seems less secure then integrated (like OB Defender)
    - my kickstand is impossible to get out, really have to torque it to open. might be unit specific.

    TBD:
    - durability. I’ve only had it a little while and the difficulty with the hard case (and looseness of buttons) does seem a little like there is breakage possibility. Also i haven’t dropped it yet (knock wood).

    Overall for those who want a regular silicone and ability to suit-up to a heavy duty this seems like a good option (maybe the only?) and at a good price point. If you’re that guy/gal and don’t particularly use the belt clip I think this is a really good option. Check out Day Deals video reviews; they helped. I like OB a lot and I think you could make an argument both ways; just a matter of priority. If I clipped it on a lot and always had it in the hard case I probably would have gone OB, but the versatility won me over and thus far I’m glad I went this direction.
