Trident Aegis Series Case

The Aegis, in Greek mythology is the shield of Zeus that was forged by Hephaestus. During the Iliad, he once lent the Aegis to Apollo and it appears as though he has also lent it to the folks at Trident. The Aegis series is their mid-range line, which offers moderate protection and a unique style. Today, we are looking at the Trident Aegis case build for the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9800. With a name like Aegis, this case has a lot to live up to. I was hoping that the Aegis proved to be as formidable as the one Zeus used, or else I would have had to release the Kraken!! Read on to see if it came to that.

The Review


I’m always caught between wanting the feel of a case-free BlackBerry and wanting to protect it from drops and dings. I was more than satisfied with the amount or protection the Aegis gave me, as well as the feel of the case. With both a silicone lining and a polycarbonate plastic shell/spine with a soft finish, I simply didn’t want to put the Torch down. Not only did it offer Mute button to Mic protection, but a fantastic grip as well. The silicone is exposed at the corners to help absorb shock from falls. I loved the fact that, on top of Trident showing off its own logo, they also made their own BlackBerry logo using cut outs between the camera lens and flash!

On the right side, exposed silicone completely covers the convenience key and volume rocker without a loss of functionality. The headset jack is also covered with a flap/plug that is easily moved out of the way when needed. On the top, the mute and lock keys are also covered and again easy to use. Unlike some other cases, you do not need to stretch the silicone before putting on the plastic spine. With some other cases, you may have to do this, or else they will continue to press down on the mute key- which may cause the Torch to freeze. The only problem I had with this case is the silicone flap/plug for the USB charging port. For the life of me, I could not get the plug to stay inside the port; even with trying to adjust it.

The Aegis also comes with a basic screen protector and a white cleaning cloth. There’s also an application card used to help smooth out the bubbles when applying the screen protector.

Pros

  • The Trident Aegis case offers all around good protection from everyday trials and tribulations. The snap on section is raised enough to protect the screen from flat surface falls. It's not too bulky to affect daily usage either.

Cons

  • As I said before, the only problem I had was getting the USB port flap/plug to sit correctly. No matter what I did, it would always stick out.

The Bottom Line

By the beard of Zeus, the Trident Aegis case indeed does offer fantastic protection and style for everyday use. The feel of the case gives you yet another reason to add to the million others as to why you should never put your BlackBerry down. I’ve been very impressed with the Aegis case for the Torch 9810 and 9800 that I need to go and see what I can get for my Bold 9900.
