Kraken Case from Trident

Just got this from Amazon. It looks and feels great! Cost: $22

Now for the bad stuff. I bite my fingernails, ok? I know, I know, whatever. As a result of this, I am unable to open the USB port or the audio port plugs on this thing. I have already (sloppily) cut the USB plug off (damn I suck with a knife!) and am fixin' to ax the audio plug as soon as I'm done whining here. I just can't be reaching for knives or forks or people with talons every time I need to plug this thing in, which is always.

While the protective clear plastic on the device still allows for touchscreen functionality, it is far less resistent to smudges than the ten cent overlay I applied last year that lays beneath it.

This thing attracts dust like WHOA.

And the very worst part about this is...it is almost impossible to grab the notification bar and drag it down. I don't have big fat sausage fingers, but come on. Is Trident's QA department comprised of only imps or mutants with pencil erasers for fingertips? It's ridiculous. I am on that notification bar a hundred times a day. It's where my main volume controls are as well as the thing to get Widgetlocker into Edit Mode.

Oh! I almost forgot. My newish large leather pouch I bought is now useless as it is too small to properly house my phone. *&^%#$@!!

But yeah, it looks great and feels great, too. :roll:

Have you looked into the Otterbox?

Sorry about the annoying dude. :D Saw these at Fry's for about $25 I think.
They don't appear to have the devastatingly huge notification bar problem.
