I'm pretty careful with my phones.. so the extra protection isn't a huge concern.
I only used the other case from the day I got the phone until I got this one, so only about a month and a half and it never got easier to take out, if anything it got more difficult. I don't need a holster that I have to remove from my belt and use both hands to remove the phone from it.
I need one that I can remove the phone one handed. I like to be able to have my phone out so I can answer it before it stops ringing. Great that you like your's I didn't like it.
So, again, if anyone wants this case, I'll be happy to give it to you for the cost of shipping.
Trident really disappointed me that they aren't making a Kraken AMS for the M8, and i've been hardpressed for a Kickstand, 2-layer protection style case with belt holster. I have a Kraken case on my HTC Ville.
Anyhow mind shooting me a PM about the I-Blason?
PS, if you've got any spare Screen Protectors, I'm also interested.
