    I don't see any talk of these Trident cases here.

    Does anyone have either one of them?

    Any comments good or bad about them?

    I like to protect my investment, and I'm currently using the Defender. I like the case, but with the silicone on the outside it's hard to pocket. So I'd like to find the same level of protection but with the silicone inside and the hard shell outside.

    I have the kraken and I absolutely love it. The silicon insert doubles as a separate case if you need to remove some bulk temporarily, which IMO is a nice feature. The only downside is that the plastic shell can be very slippery so that took some getting used to.

    There must be more people out there with the Aegis or Kraken cases.

    Well I don't I don't know anything about the Aegis but if you have any questions about the Kraken then let me know.

    That's not bad at all, worth a shot IMO.

    Anyone know if the Aegis will work with the factory extended battery?

    I can't say for sure but when I searched it I came across a post on another forum where the user posted that it does fit but it is a tight fit. They said they did not notice any buttons or anything else being out of alignment either.

    How do you like the Kraken?

    Is the silicone on the inside, and the hard case on the outside?

    Sorry for the delay, super long day at work today. Anyway, yes it has the silicone inner and the plastic outer. And honestly I love it. The shell is pretty slippery so that took some getting used to. But I have a case addiction to the point where even cases I like I replace and this one I have been using for 2 months without removing it.

    I watched a couple of video reviews on YouTube, and they said it did fit but was tight.

    This phone needs the bigger battery, so I can't imagine going back to the stock one ever.

    I suppose if I forced it on it would fit. But I am not a fan of that idea honestly lol.

    Alright, so i ordered the Aegis, they come in multiple colors (which is nice) it was inexpensive in comparison to the Otterbox, and it doesn't bulk up the phone as much as it looks like in the pictures, the colored part of the case comes off and then you have the option of just having a black case. It comes with a screen protector also. If any one finds one with the extended battery option, id like to hear about it. the only thing I've found is the Trident which is a product of Aegis but really not the same thing and looks like its pretty bulky in the pictures. http://amzn.to/OkD7UW

    I have it and I am working on a review video. I love it. I've had the Otterbox Defender and switched to the Kraken, because of the kick stand. Otterbox does not have this, and the Otterbox is not really built for the curved display of the GNex. While I loved the Otterbox on my Droid X, the Kraken was just amazing. The Otterbox felt like it wasn't snug and if I squeezed the phone when texting it would push into the phone and quite frankly I didnt want the phone to bounce around inside the case if dropped. Now the Otterbox does have a built in screen protector which I removed after 2 days because it bubbled. (Didn't do that on the DX)

    Also there was no support around the edges of the Otterbox, thereby scratching my phone around the screen, the Trident has silicone under the plastic which does a great job of protecting the phone.

    Kraken Pros
    Comes with screen protector you put on yourself
    Has kickstand
    Firm and well built, volume and power buttons are very easy to press
    Works with extended battery

    Kraken Cons
    The kickstand becomes loose after awhile and keeps coming out without pulling it. I put a small piece of velcro under it and it solved the issue, but still a bother.


    Defender Pros
    Built in screen protector
    The belt clip is better

    Defender Cons
    The screen protector that is built in bubbles
    Case does more harm than good with scratching phone
    Not well made for the curve of the phone
    No kickstand
    Doesnt work with extended battery
