I have yet to try a case on my moto x for the first 8 months of having it. I don't like small slim cases because they add some bulk without adding really any protection beyond the cosmetic. I wanted a less bulky "full protection" type case that still had some good looks to it. The trident aegis is perfect! It has a nice looking profile (albeit different than the moto x) and protects the phone fully. It is a bit of a lint magnet because the corners are rubberized but it doesn't actually stick in my pocket too much. Haven't gotten tired of the additional bulk or weight and I don't have to worry about my phone anymore. I did botch the screen protector a little bit as the top is caught on the top lip so a small bubble there, but overall not too hard to apply. For $20 over on amazon it is a steal!!

Thanks for the pics that's not as bulky as I thought. Trident makes good cases, I have the Kraken for outdoor activities.

It is a shame that it does not have the M dimple.

I thought the same, but I actually don't miss it too much. It does have a rubber strip where the trident logo is which actually does much in the way of keeping the phone grounded on a table. I can now swipe text without it swinging about.

Although that may be due to the extra weight!

How does the edge of the case feel against your ear? I had the Otterbox on my D4 for about 3 phone calls before taking it off due to the hard edge of the case.

Hmm can't say it feels especially different, it's not hard plastic resting right against your ear as the layer of rubber is just beneath it

I've had this case for a couple of months and like it a lot. My only issue is it is a bit of a pain to put on/take off, so I use my Incipio Dual Pro more regularly. Not quite as much protection, but close.

Note that I only use a case when I am out and know that it might get knocked about. If you keep a case on it regularly this would obviously not be an issue.
