Review – Trident Perseus Gel Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5


Trident’s Perseus Gel Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is their lightweight protection option, but lightweight is only safe to say when compared to their other cases. The Perseus is fairly substantial compared to other TPU cases because of the thickness of it and should offer superior protection.

Cut outs were all sized right with no issues getting the charging port cover open on the bottom. Buttons were stiff compared to other cases due to the thickness of the TPU material, but still completely usable. I liked the raised edges at the top and bottom of the side edges since they gave a lot of grip to the case. The screen protector is a premium one and does not have the oil-slick rainbow effect to it. In the past few days of use, it has not picked up any signs of wear and is of sufficient hardness that it should look good for a long time.

The Trident Perseus Gel case is a solid choice for a TPU with the screen protector being a nice add-on. You can find these in Smoke or Trident Green on their website at a list price of $19.95.
