If you’re anticipating an iPhone 6S as a Christmas present, you’ll also need a durable case as a stocking stuffer to protect your valuable new gift. Although time is running out, one of the best smartphone cases for the holidays is the Kraken A.M.S. Case for the iPhone 6/6S.
One of just several superior products from Southern California-based Trident Case, the latest Kraken A.M.S. case, is much like its predecessors designed earlier iPhone models. The primary feature of this model still is its tough exoskeleton, made of hardened polycarbonate and over-molded, shock absorbing Thermo Plastic Elastomer (TPE) to protect your phone from accidental drops. In fact, the Kraken A.M.S. case meets the Military Standards (MIL-STD-810F) for drop, vibration, dust, sand and rain through independent testing. What this means is that prototypes of this case is subjected to a series of independent testing before it potentially reaches your Christmas stocking. This includes nearly 30 drops onto concrete from four feet, 18 hours of vibration analysis and exposure to nearly eight inches of rain per hour at 40 mph, over a one-hour period. Additionally, this rock solid case is eco-friendly and intended to reduce the carbon footprint of a consumer. In addition to the protective casing, the Kraken A.M.S. case is equipped with a built in, scratch resistant screen protector to help keep dirt and moisture away from a smartphone. It also allows for easy use of smartphone gestures like tapping or swiping from one page to another. Other features of the case include dust filters at its base, lanyard loops and a protective covering made of TPE for the power ports and audio jacks to further protect from dirt and debris.
Straight out of the package, the Kraken A.M.S. case comes attached to a removable belt-clip holster for easy access to an iPhone. After removing the holster, the backside reveals an alloy media stand for hands free viewing from multiple angles. But by removing the holster and the media stand, the case can then be used with optional accessories, such as a windshield mount for directional navigating or as a quick release bike mount.
What makes getting that last minute Christmas gift even more enticing is the holiday sale currently going on through the end of the month. Trident Case is offering 25 percent off plus free shipping on the Kraken A.M.S. or any other product available through its official website, with the exception of web specials. Because this special runs through December, you can still take advantage of this offer even after everyone has opened their Christmas gift.
In addition to the original Kraken case retailing for $49.95 for the iPhone 6/6S and the iPhone 6/6S Plus, Trident Case also offers the Antimicrobial Kraken A.M.S. Case for the iPhone 6/6S for $79.95, as well as for the iPhone 6/6 Plus for $10 more. But it’s not just Apple cases that are available. Indeed, Trident Case offers cases for over 100 devices, including selections from Amazon, Samsung, LG, Sony and Motorola.
Over the years, the Kraken A.M.S. case has received a number of industry leading awards as well as several positive reviews for its design, versatility and protection. And just last month, Trident Case CEO Hong Lip Yow was named Small Business Executive of the Year by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the high profile trade group led by Gary Shapiro, who also hosts the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
In conclusion, Trident Case’s Kraken A.M.S. case for the iPhone 6/6S gets an unequivocal five stars for this review, indicative of superior quality, function and workmanship.
