Trident Cyclops Case for iPhone 5 Users


Trident Cases has fantastically done it again with their latest technology of the Cyclops  version phone case for iPhone 5 users.  With the Cyclops sleek design you can easily fit this case into your purse, handbag, tool belt, etc.  For me I work in a medical atmosphere Mon thru Fri and this case is very professional looking and on the weekend I’m doing construction which is cool and tough enough to be out on the work site.

A little bit about the Cyclops ($39.95) phone case.

Awesome bright colors that fit into today’s style and generation

Nice rubber edging with superior grip that covers basically all open areas of the phone (i.e. volume, silent, ear bud hole, charging hole, partial speaker and mic)

Front screen protector

Very tight case that is very hard to break open when dropped.

If the outer edge of the Cyclops gets dirty you can take a handy dish rag and wipe it down with some Dawn dish soap to get its clean look back.

With the case being as tight as it is, some would say (me), that it is hard to get open and hard to take your phone back out.  Which this may be kind of a pro if you think about it because you know if it’s hard to get open then more likely your phone will survive when you drop it on concrete floor or off a roof.  Even when you have teenagers that carelessly drop their phones or ride riding lawn mowers with a double bladed system, you can guarantee this case will take the hit and not your phone.  Well the whole riding lawn mower gig has yet to be proven but you get my point.  Tough cases sometimes means tough to get open but also tough to break open.

One more for me would be if you have some sort of in-vis-i-shield (invisible shield) cover on your phone already than these cases would probably rub it off when you’re taking the Cyclops case off, only because I believe Trident makes these cases specifically to form over your phone and I believe they sell their own version of invisi-shield that won’t peel up or tear while removing your phone for cleaning.

2 cons are not bad for me, and I think you’ll agree.  With Trident always stepping up the bar from its competitors it’s hard to resist getting your hands on these awesome cases!   Whether you’re in construction, mountain biking, going out with the friends, or secretly flying around on your jet pack, you can rest assure you’ll have the style and durability for whatever life throws at you and your phone. My words to you as a fellow consumer of this brand is whatever the case may be choose Trident Case!

Here is the installation for the Cyclops s4….it’s a very similar style to the iphone5 design
