Video [VIDEO] Trident Cyclops Case for the HTC One Max



First off, I'd like to say sorry. That video was way too long. Maybe I've been downing too much cough syrup. I don't know how I could talk about one case for that long...

Since I started reviewing Trident cases, they have been always been at the top of my list. Their construction, attention to details, features, durability, and colors are what attracted me. Plus everything is reasonably priced compared to other name brand case manufacturers.

The choices used to be easy with Trident. If you wanted the highest protection available, you'd look to the Kraken Series. I compare it to the Otterbox Defender case. Taking a step back in protection to lower the bulk you could go with the Aegis. This is similar to the Otterbox Commuter case. Now Trident has more series. With the HTC One Max there was only one choice though. The Cyclops series.

This series has a lot of great features. I like the dust ports, the ease of sliding in and out of my pocket, the compromise between bulk and protection, and fairly pleasing design. It does include a built in screen protection, however I prefer glass screen protectors. If you decide to bring your own screen protector, you can always remove the built in one.

As demonstrated in the video, it can work with wireless charging IF you have an aftermarket QI receiver like mine.

Below is a list of features from Trident's website.
