Last Updated: November 23rd, 2011

Yesterday I reviewed one of the most full-featured (and full-priced) EVO 3D cases currently available: Trident's Kraken Adaptive Modular System. If you can afford it, it's a great choice, even if it may be a bit on the hefty side (I recommend applying only the middle part of the case, the "Perseus" layer).

For construction workers, hikers, and other outdoorsy types, it's a dream come true. And even if your job doesn't demand the kind of rough-and-tough case that can withstand anything from a roundhouse kick to a good ol' drop on cement, it wouldn't hurt to win a $45 case for free, would it?

How do I win, you ask? Simple enough: just leave a witty comment below telling us why you think you should win one of the five cases up for grabs and which color you'd prefer (the choices are black, blue, and red). Make sure you use your real email so that we can easily get in touch with you should you win.

This contest is now over. Here are our winners, selected at random:
  • Cynthia Flores
  • Nathan Curtis
  • Neil (28)
  • MD
  • Carlos (Ice)

Congratulations, guys - all of you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

The contest begins immediately and runs until 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday, November 20th. Unfortunately, due to shipping costs and regulations, you must be a US resident to enter this contest.

    I'll take the black one thank you.

    What is Black or Blue and 3D all over?

  • Neil

    I took the year off from work because my son was diagnosed with autism. I take him to different therapists each day and some to multiple therapists. In my travels he likes to watch videos and abuse my phone. I don't have the heart to not let him use it, but the drops and pounding are taking a toll on my poor EVO. I could really use this case. WE could really use it. I'd love it in black please.

  • markbo

    I'll take a black.....awesome case.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Please don't post your email in public - just use the email field in the comment.

  • Jake Voorhees

    I should win a case because my Evo 3D needs protection while I'm out in the field diagnosing repairs for intelligent transportation system infrastructure in Chicago; position: traffic engineer (I get in and out of my car a lot and always drop my phone off my lap).

  • moccor

    How can anything be next to nothing? Since nothing is, you know, nothing.

  • Willie Marquez

    Black. I deserve one because I have gone through so many phone already, having dropped each one at least 6 times.

  • http://facebook.com/tommyw249 Tommy

    Yo dawg I heard you like cases, so I put a case in a case so your case can be cased in a case, all within another case to case your cases.

    Black or blue!

  • Maria

    Red would be the color my Evo wants to be noticed in.

    Thank you!

  • Jonathan Correll

    I do not need nor do I want this case but my Evo3D told me he felt unsafe, something about acrophobia. The Xanax I stuck in the headphone jack didn't work so I guess you're my only hope.

  • mark l

    I'd love to win a case for this reason (and this reason ALONE) - it looks badass. Like a juggernaut phone case.

  • John O’Connor

    My little 3VO is a dirty lil girl and I need to make sure she stops coming home to daddy with unexplained cuts and bruises... Can anyone say EVO-I.U.D.? Also we don't discriminate on race, creed or color here... What can I say she's gets around with equal opportunity

  • max

    A blue case would match nicely with my uniform. A sturdy case works well I could allways throw it at fleeing perps, its my birthday Nov 23 and getting this in the mail would be a nice gift ...and finally it will push me over the the edge to get the upgrade

  • - Z -

    I need one so I can release it when some upstart mortal pisses me off. In black.

  • Enforcer

    Got to keep trying, going to win sooner or later. Black would be okay with me.

  • http://bevonfindley.com Bevon

    I need a black one so i can protect my nexus s 4g and laugh at the iphone 4 when it falls and bounce right back into my hand due to the awesome springs in the back.

  • Mike

    I need it because it wil prompt me to finally order my new EVO 3D.

  • jeo

    The reason why I want this case is because I have purchased other ones and they don't compare to this one. Plus I like leather, so my evidence wants to be red for contrast... lol

  • Christopher Petrovic

    I would like a case
    To protect my E3D
    It would please me much.

    My senryu about how I would like a case for my Evo 3D. Color doesn't matter. They all protect the same.

  • April Silva

    We were shopping for my boyfriend's three kids and being a man, he got grumpy and lazy. Lol! So, to relieve his woes, he sat in a wheelchair outside the dressing room. We hard a loud pop....he broke his (black) case. I know, it serves him right for sitting in a wheelchair and for being unaware of the case/phone attached to him. But, the kids are always using our Evo 3D phones to play games and it is his livelihood. Too, it will save me from having to buying another! :) Thanks!

  • alec

    I need the trident case in black so I don't have to go through my 6th EVO 3d...that's right, I'm holding my 5th right now. Kind of clumsy...

  • Haze Chamberlin

    I want this case because I am a tree farmer, a mechanic and cosmetologist. So I'm in constant danger of a tree falling on my phone. Car parts skyrocketing at my screen. Shears (hair scissors), heavy razers getting knocked into it. And my dogs pissing or eating it.

  • Frank

    I would li ke a black one so that I can protect my Evo 3D from my 11 month old son who has already managed to carve his little teeth into the back side of my baby.....by baby I mean my Evo 3D :-&

  • Devoid75

    I need a new case because all my others keep kraken.

  • StakdRak

    This would be absolutely wonderful on my 3D! I once was a blackberry only kind of girl, told my husband, once you go black you never go back. That is until crackberry had my name memorized. I am a huge klutz! Please help me protect my defenseless phone from me! Thanks a mil! Any color works.

  • StakdRak

    This would be absolutely wonderful on my 3D! I once was a blackberry only kind of girl, told my husband, once you go black you never go back. That is until crackberry had my name memorized. I am a huge klutz! Please help me protect my defenseless phone from me!

  • Luis

    i need a blue one just to see if is really child proof. (I mean daughter resistant)

  • Jaythan

    Black... I work in a machine shop in my town. I could use one of these case because of all the debris and metal sparks flying on my EVO 3D. It has survived so far with minor stuff but its only a matter of time. Thanks

  • rommel

    I just want the kickstand but I guess I have to live with the black case to.

  • Ron

    I want it but don't own a evo 3d so if I won you would have to give me an evo 3d so don't even consider my post.. really just look away....Why not Zoidberg?

  • Andrew Dossett

    Wow! This case is exactly what I need. This thing looks tough. Im a carpenter and my phones are always getting ruined due to dust and dropping them.

  • Joe

    I'd like a black case...mainly because I have to keep this thing protected for a full 2 years now that Sprint took away my Premier benefits :( Besides that, I've really grown to miss the kickstand from my old Evo!

  • duble08

    Beggars can't be choosers! I'll take whatever color you wanna throw me! ::cough::black::cough cough:: ;-)

  • ckeen7

    The black one! Thank you.

  • Jesus Otero

    I have no witty comment, i just want to win one :O
    ...oh, and black! :D

  • Diana

    I would love the black one but any color will do, actually. I've been waiting for a case like this. be even better if i could win one :-).

  • Gary Hicks

    Well, I'm in the Army and my wife and I just LOVE to hike!!! You can always see pictures of our newest adventure on my facebook or Google+ page. I would really love to have one of these cases (in black of course). If it was possible to make money in the Army I would buy one lol. Thaks AP!!!

  • Stan Johnson

    I have two kids that love to play games on my phone, need I say anything more?

  • Nich

    Commenting. Snazy looking case, possibly a bit bulky. The Otterbox Commuter I got is really nice but has some fit issues. This might be nice.

  • Andi Mazur

    I actually don't even own an EVO 3D. I purchased my brother a $100 Gift card to sprint for his birthday because he was eligible for an upgrade. I told him, as long as he buys an evo 3d, I would give him money towards it. And he did. His wedding anniversary is coming up soon, and I feel this would be a great add-on gift. Thanks.

  • http://CalebKester.com Caleb

    I'd really like to try this thing out. I haven't put a case on my evo and I wouldn't mind trying this out (especially for that kickstand)

  • well versed

    My Evo 3D definitely needs a case! I've dropped this thing way too many times! Hope I win and good luck to everybody!

  • Austin

    You should give the case to me so i have a reason to get an evo 3d.

    Red. Please.

  • Cynthia Flores

    Just got my Evo 3d. This would be perfect#

  • David Holden

    Pick me so I can keep my prized possession safe from this cruel iworld. Blue is good, but BLACK is best. (If you don't pick me I will sick @teamsilence32 on you!!!)

  • Omar Arteaga

    My wife's EVO 3D is naked and needs a case. Her favorite color is red.

  • Joshua Keppel

    This should protect my phone after I throw it against a wall in a rage after a kernel flash sends it into bootloop. Protect my phone from me hulking out. (Black).

  • thom

    I could always use another durable phone case, especially if it has a little thingy that comes out and pokes me occasionally.

  • Kyle Lindgren

    My baby is still naked! Needs a coat with a kick stand

  • Ronnie

    I need a blue one to match my ROM's theme! And also because I can't afford a real case!!

  • eric

    I'd like a Kraken case because I actually work in construction, have an evo 3d, and have one hell of a time finding a case that can take the abuse of my day-to-day. I also want my phone to double as a hockey puck.

  • Greg Fuller

    Any color would be great to protect my s-off , rooted and heavily modified EVO3d cause let's face it Sprint ain't gonna replace it now and i need it to keep up with AndroidPoliice news.

  • http://www.goodandevo.net Paul King

    I want a Kraken as I now know I can restart my phone by pressing vol up, vol down and power and holding for 5 seconds or so, making it so I never actually have to yell "unleash the Kraken," however I would

  • David M.

    Well I should win it because I won't ever purchase the device since the kickstand is facing the wrong direction for charging. I would however use the case a lot this winter during snowboarding trips. Otherwise I'll just use my old g1. Black please.

  • Rose

    I need a red case cause I am a Louisville Cardinals fan and I would hate to drop my phone while at a basketball game.

  • whisnantrider

    If Chuck Norris was a case he would be a kraken.

  • Rich

    One word: Wife

    She inherited my old Evo 4G and has managed to "make it commit suicide" by jumping out of her hands twice now. Causing me to have to replace the screen (but it is otherwise okay, tough little cookie); and it is only a matter of time before she gets her butterfingers on my phone and it suffers the same fate. Evo 3D screens aren't nearly as cheap as 4G screens.

    Please protect my phone from my wife!

  • Tammer

    I should get one because you greedy 1% took my money!

  • darren

    I need one of these in any colour. Doesn't matter right now. The world is ending and I must save my android first forget the wife......

  • koniczynek

    My 6 mo daughter really likes my android phone. This would be good to protect my precious from her... any colour would do ;)

    BTW I am based in Europe, so when you choose me we pretend that I live in USA and I will pay for shipping costs? Deal? ;)

  • Carlos

    Blacks got your back, blue is the color you never want your balls to be, and red is the color of blood. Guess which one I want.

  • http://infectedrom.com/forum.php Norwester

    I need a black one mainly because I don't have one,black or otherwise.

  • Hugh Thomas

    because i want to see how pointless it is :D

  • SammyB

    My EVO 3d would like a blue Kraken case to shield it from all the comments that "3d is just a gimmick". It's feeling a little down :(!

  • Adam

    Here I thought that I would definitely win this one---a case for each Evo3d owners.

  • Jeff Snyder

    My evo 3d told me it's getting cold here in the mid Atlantic area so please help me to keep it warm with 3 layers of protection...

  • Leonard Kelly

    I need a Kraken to finish what HTC should've started in the first place & give this phone a kick stand. Besides, this Otter Box is a cruel joke for as much as I drop phones.

  • jaythanc

    Black would be great for many EVO 3d. I work hard in a machine shop and could definitely user this thanks.

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/106590241327894514636/posts Caleb Escamilla

    IM in the army so something like this would help cuz i drop my phone all the time saving are nation form stuff ... and red would look good with my unit patch thats also red

  • tyler jackson

    My reasons:
    1. I actually hike
    2. I love 3d photography
    3. Red is my favorite color and I am a cardinals fan.
    My list of other phones I ended up replacing because of it being dropped or sat on.
    Random LG flip phone, LG dare, g1, HTC hero, HTC evo (broke my roomates).
    Don't want to keep the trend going so I NEED a case.

  • fonseca898

    My sis could use this for her Evo 3D. Help reduce my Xmas shopping!

  • Dagnasty

    I would love a blue one. I really need a case, since I just received a new 3D through Asurion since my old one got liquid damage. Hopefully this case could protect it a little the next time I pop and Ambien and drop my phone in the bath :(

  • http://gthing.net sam

    I personally believe the U.S. Americans are unable to protect their phones because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have good cases and, uh, I believe that our phones like such as South Africa and, uh, the Iraq everywhere like, such as and I believe that they should, our phones over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. errr..should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our... phones.

    That's why I believe I should have a new case. I'll take black or whatever other color nobody wants and such as.

  • BrazenRain

    I should get one because I, a mere college engineering student, would look to fabricating something like it for my own phone (before dutifully giving the case to my friend who happens to have an Evo 3d).
    P.S. comment #99!

  • Nasir Amarah

    With the protection of the kraken i wont be afraid to drop the soap ever again.

    Black works for me, but beggars cant be choosers so I will take what is available if I should win.

  • Adam

    Look, my EVO 3D has no jacket or clothes. I'm not sure it will be able to survive the winter :(

    A nice black case would make it feel warm and cared for.

  • http://driplerforevo3d bwilly

  • TT

    I originally had an EVO 4G but it was stolen a little under a month ago. Someone went through my belongings while I was playing soccer and took it. I like to try new ROMs often and didn't have very good security tools installed when it was stolen. I was able to get a Google Latitude lock on the location they had last used it before I stopped service and gave that and other info to the police. Sprint gave me an EVO 3D for $100 as a replacement. I'm slowly getting used to it but now have no use for my EVO 4G car dock or case..

  • louie lock

    This is a great case. I want one!

  • http://drippler meredyth clark

    I have been looking for cases for my 3d and have found nothing worth a cent. This case looks and sounds absolutely amazing. I can't wait to get my hands on one. Finally there's a product that is upto par with such an incredible device. Red is awesome!

  • greg ramirez

    I need a case for my Evo 3D because it needs protection from the harms of the world. I am nothing without my phone. black or blue would be great!!

  • Leon Wozlonis

    I wanna rock this case because it's sleek stylish and max protection is a dream come true. Way to go guys

  • Kirk N

    OHH, it's a case! I thought this was to win the gum with layers of flavors. No one offers to protect my phone with gum. But I did just buy my EVO 3D and could use a case too. :-)

  • April Johnson

    would love one. this is a cool contest

    I should win a blue Trident Kraken case because I like blue Trident gum. It's the perfect combination.

  • Bob Thomas

    Kids - nope. Wife - nope. Job - nope. I just want my phone to be the one that makes fun of the other phones all dressed in the Otterbox cases! Black please.

  • Jessica Avery

    I want a case , you want a case , but I phone will never have a cool case like this. Life's an adventure and your phone should ready for anything just like you! Rock on with your bad self. Blue would work best because I know I'll never be blue if I accidentally drop, bang it, twins fight over or boyfriend tries to keep it from me, wishing his was cool like mine.
