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.

FEATURES

HARDENED BIO-ENHANCED POLYCARBONATE SHELL

SHOCK-ABSORBING TPE

BUILT-IN SCREEN PROTECTOR

DEVICE CONTROLS & PORTS PROTECTED

DUST FILTERS

LIGHT-WEIGHT / SLIM PROTECTION

SLIDES IN & OUT OF POCKETS
WITH EASE


LANYARD LOOP

ANTI-SKID

MILITARY STANDARDS
Meets or exceeds MIL-STD-810F

DROP PROTECTION

26 drops onto concrete from 4ft

VIBRATION

18 hrs at 20-2000 Hz

DUST FILTERS

3 hours at 29 ft / sec. Sand - 3 hours at 59 ft / sec.

RAIN / WIND


7.9 inches / hour of rain at 40 mph winds for 1 hour

GREEN PROTECTION

Degradable, compostable, and recyclable

Overall, if you like the design, I would consider it a "buy".
