Trident Kraken A.M.S. Case for iPhone 5/5S Review

My husband gave me an  iPhone 5S a few months back. I know how pricey it is to own one so I was looking for a tough protective case. It was perfect timing as I was given an opportunity to review the Kraken A.M.S. Case for Apple iPhone 5/5S from  Trident Case!

Trident Case Review

Trident Case was established in May 2010 with the goal of providing the toughest cases for the growing mobile device market. All Trident  Case products are manufactured in the United States of America.

Trident sent me the iPhone case overseas and I received it in good condition. I received a white colored case and as soon as I received it,  I read the instructions and immediately put it on. In fact, it was very easy to put on! As I was looking at the packaging of the case, I was amazed at the numerous features of the Kraken A.M.S. Case!

Device controls and ports protected to ensure your device is protected from dust and water.

Degradable, compostable and recyclable material used to ensure that the product is eco-friendly.

Comes with belt clip/holster for additional protection.


My phone is widely used by my kids too  now and the case has proved to be very useful for our family. It has been 4 weeks ago since I have installed the case over my phone. So far, I am very satisfied with the tough protection it gives my iPhone 5S. Through out the past 4 weeks, my phone was fallen to the floor twice already. Thankfully, the iPhone is still in one piece and is working properly. I also am grateful that there is a built-in screen protector as it keeps my screen scratch free from all the usage. The detachable media stand has also proven very useful to me and my kids. We use it whenever we read eBooks or watch YouTube videos. I also like the way the ports are covered from dust and other possible scenarios. With kids using the phone, you just don’t know what might happen to your phone. It is better to have it protected!


The camera is not obstructed by the case and the buttons at the side are all well protected. The screen is very clear as though there is no built-in screen protector on top of it.

For all these wonderful features, the case  only costs $49.95! That is really a great deal.

The Kraken A.M.S. Case for Apple Iphone 5/5S is designed for all ages and for both genders. It actually comes in several colors.
