Here's a post about all of my cases.
Green Trident Cyclops
Very nice screen protector. Works well with pre installed verizon anti glare protector. Buttons work well. Very hard to remove though. Covers ports well. Doesn't feel as bulky as otterbox commuter. Bottom lip isn't tapered as much as the defender so hitting home recent or back isn't as easy.
Red Qmadix S Series
Good all around coverage. Side Buttons press easily but not the best. Easy to install and remove. No display protection. No port coverage.
Cyan / neon blue Incipio Feather
Favorite case. Few finger prints. No color peeling. Doesn't protect top display bezel though. Easiest to install and remove. Great for pockets. I use this case I the most. Cleans up with dish soap.
Black Otterbox Defender
Awesome kickstand belt clip. Improved design from earlier models. Much stronger and hasn't broken. No problems with screen protector coming off but doesn't work as well with the pre installed. Have to press slightly harder. Still wouldn't chance using this with naked display. Have had dust or sand get between and scratch display. Happy with holster doesn't block any ports.
Can't really comment on durability with the Trident or Qmadix as these two were Christmas gifts. I did notice the Qmadix had a scratch but it's solid not painted so not noticeable.
Ideally my case would be a Seidio Convert (or whatever they call them these days). But they don't exist. Or a Vaja case. But this is a carrier specific device so we won't see a variety like the moto X or gs4.
Lastly none of these cases have caused any damage to the phone. I've seen many people with cases develop wear lines especially with the Griffin cases.
Hope this finds you well and enjoying your device!
