For anyone that may have both how does the protection compare to the aegis. I have the Aegis and like it but it is definitely bulky

I ordered both the Trident and Ballistic. I prefered the Ballistic because of the beefier corners. Better protection if dropped. About the same size as the Trident. No experience witht the case of OP. But, I think you usually get what you pay for.

Thx for sharing this.
Just bought one myself recently, it's a case that I actually like.
however, the only gripe I have is that the silicone half doesn't fit as tight around the phone as I would like. but other than that I love it.

Bump!

Thanks Synenergy52, I went ahead and bought one. I want to especially thank you for the nice detailed (nice resolution and angled) pictures; it's very helpful when you can see an actual image--not some 'stock' photograph on the buyer's page.

Anyway, I actually purchased it from here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Samsung-...ht_2241wt_1396 In case the sale is done, I paid $6.49 USD.

Interestingly, that seller has several color variants. Too bad I'm not very original, although I was tempted with their neon green and black case, hence why I went for the black one (also because that's the one I could see an actual image of, thanks to your review).

I was sold more on this thread, than I was when I looked at the product on the purchase page.

Very content with this case.

Thanks.

Had mine a couple months, like it alot. Bought a slimmer s/hard gel type skin which I like more becuse of slimline but it added the echo to my conversations, even with the card trick. So am back to this one.

Exactly my opinion as well. I feel like the silicone material needs to be a tad bit harder so it doesn't flex so much. Which I would gladly pay much more for.

Amazon doesn't have the all white one. Looking for another alternate case.

EXCELLENT BUY. The phone now feels solid and grippy all without getting stuck in your pocket. The back is smooth. Very good balance. Without it, the phone feels flimsy and slippy.

Here's where I found it, Amazon:

Amazon.com - Samsung Galaxy S2 T-Mobile T989 Accessories - Hybrid Case $8

Shipping was FAST! HIGHLY satisfied





Sorry for the hair on my phone... I wish I had seen it before taking the pics! YUCK!

I know of an even better case and its 7.77 on ebay!!!!!!! Plus it has a built in kickstand and multiple colors!! here is the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/T-MOBILE-SAM...item3372450e3c
