I firmly believe a picture speaks a thousand words, so as with many of my unboxings, this unboxing is based around a photo gallery.
The Lunatik Taktik Case is a hardcore monster of a case. It started its life on KickStarter (a crowd funded startup site, that helps fledgling companies get the money they need from the public often by offering great incentives to ‘backers.’
As you can see from the photos this is a big case, nothing about it says subtle, it needs its own tool just to get it on your phone! The gorilla glass adding further protection to your phones screen and the overall styling shouting ‘go ahead, break me, I dare ya!’
Although obviously nothing is unbreakable, just ask the Titanic! However if this thing breaks in your pocket, there is a good chance your leg is broken too, so you’ll be more worried about that!

As you can see from the pics, this is a well thought out case, it covers the ports well, keeping dust and grit out, however it is not waterproof, nor does it claim to be so. It has a cut out for the camera, the considerable depth of the case protects the camera lens although doesn’t affect the pictures you take, the flash still works, causing no shadowing or flash wash out. It has a lot of tough rubber in it’s construction which adds great drop and shock protection and as I have already mentioned the Gorilla Glass keeps your phone’s screen safe and clear.
Oh and the biggest one, this case looks amazing, the finish and quality are excellent, the red alloy port cover (on the black case) setting the case of beautifully.
The downsides that are worthy of a mention are the rubber backing makes it a bit sticky when sliding it into your pocket, it is heavy, very heavy, and it isn’t waterproof. Those points are me just playing devil’s advocate, the rubber backing is always going to be sticky, for me the protection it gives outweighs this, the weight again is something that comes with the nature of the case, and the waterproof aspect would be nice.
Oh and the biggest one, this is expensive! $125 from Lunatik.com
I purchased this case in April 2013 and used it daily until June 2013 when the Otterbox Armor took over, its waterproof qualities winning it for me, however if the waterproof thing is irrelevant to you and you need a tough case that is well designed and looks great this could well be the case you need!
