I just received this case yesterday and I got to say that it is a pretty nice case if you're looking for a tough case. I've been looking for a case like the Otterbox since it appears they will not be releasing a defender series for this phone. This one is actually the opposite because they put the hard case on the outside of the silicone case. They did this so when you don't need/want the plastic part, you can still use the silicone part as a case. The metal kickstand is also a nice addition, especially since I tend to watch netflix on my phone quite a bit. It is a universal GS2 case, meaning it fits ours and the international version. It has a notch at the bottom for the international's home button, and has the hole at the top for our noise cancellation mic. You do have to work it a bit to get the plastic part over the silicone, but really that's a good thing. Also the button feel is really nice with this case. Feels better than when it's just the phone itself. They also got the phone to me quickly. I got it about 3 days after I ordered it and it came from California to South Carolina, free shipping. So if you've been wondering about this case or wanting another option for a tough case, I'd give this one a try. I love it. Oh and there are also other colors available.

I've been looking for something since falling out of love with the Siedio Active combo, but I really dislike how the holster has that circular portion resting directly against the screen. That just can't be good for anything over the long term.

It doesn't touch the screen. There's plenty of space.

Like I said the buttons feel better than without a case. As for bulk it adds a bit, probably about as much as an otterbox defender would. It is a tough case afterall. Trident also offers other cases for our phones.

That's a nice case. I've never liked things like the Otterbox, always thought they were really fugly. If I were in the market for a tough case, I'd definitely consider this.

Yeah I agree they aren't attractive but I've always been a function over fashion type lol. But hell this case had me sold when it was a tough case with a kickstand. I watch a lot of netflix on my phone.

Kickstands are great. I made one using the spare battery cover from my Vibrant. I don't watch too much content on my phone anymore though, the screen is too small for me =P
