Default Trident Aegis Case for HTC One S

So I received my Trident Aegis Case today and I love it. On the one hand it is bulkier than both the Cimo and Diztronic cases. It doesn't feel as grippy as the Cimo which is what I have been using.

On the other hand the phone feels like it could take a bigger hit. Also, the buttons are a lot easier to press than with a case or even without a case. The power button was a bit of a frustration for me but not so with this case. The cover also has covers for the ports.

To answer another question in another thread, you can attach a lanyard to this case, two little holes on the same side as the volume bar.

I will update when I use it some more to get my impressions for every day use. I took pictures.

It also comes with a screen protector, but I have not used it since I already had a different one on the phone.

Here's a link http://www.tridenteer.com/categories...7%7DHTC-VILLE/ It comes in black, blue, green, pink and red.

Just to chime in, I've been using this case for about a week and I can echo that the buttons are MUCH easier to press in this case. It was frustrated with the power button, especially with the D3O case from T-Mobile. This new case is like night and day.

Trident does a really good job of balancing silicone and hard shells so that the phone still has plenty of cushioning in case you drop it while not being too 'sticky' from the silicone. This is a welcome from the typical gel/silicone cases that get caught in your pockets.

I'm really quite gentle on my phones but having this same type of case on my last phone gave me plenty of confidence is not having to baby it. Tossing it around and dropping it doesn't make me even wince anymore. The One S case is no exception.

I managed to get a black Trident Aegis off ebay for my phone and so far i'm loving it. Works really well and it's alot easier for me to handle now. As a lefty, I always had issues with the power button but now since it's more prominent, I can reach it pretty quickly.

I received my green aegis awhile back. Love the color and feel of the case. Not bulky and as mentioned earlier, easy to push power and volume buttons easily. (Lefty also)

Only issue I have, and it may not be one, the corners, though covered with the silicone, seem like if I were to drop the phone on a corner, how much impact resistance will it absorb... Again, it may be enough for a normal 3-5 foot drop.. though not willing to test it out intentionally.

Depends, it lifted mine a little bit on the bottom of the phone near the capacitive buttons so I just trimmed the next screen protector corners before placing it.

I think this has more to do with the curved glass screen than the screen protector.
