Its not even a new case the cover of the case was worn out so basically a used one,
I didn't get any extra screws only one screw driver.
Product is nice. To use the buttons we have to press a lil hard and its very hard to put iphone in silent mode, nice armored case
But not worth 2500/-

Cons: Adds some bulk, no screen protector, and 6 screws deter quick-and-easy case changes, headphone opening is a bit small
I picked up this case for my new iPhone 5S and it is awesome. I previously used a Taktik Extreme on my iPhone 4S and although Lunatik is coming out with an Extreme for the 5S, it will cover the TouchID sensor, rendering the sensor useless - a compromise between protection and functionality I'm not willing to make. This case has no integrated screen protector, so none of the phones's functions are hindered in any way - including the TouchID - but, the screen could be vulnerable to being scratched. Mitigating this potential risk is the fact that the screen is "recessed" by about 4mm by the bezels. Nonetheless, I also added a Wrapsol Ultra Xtreme screen protector to the phone.
The case has 3 main parts: the front bezel, back bezel, and silicone impact truss. The phone sits in the impact truss, which is then sandwiched between the bezels, providing impact and drop protection far above and beyond that of most other cases I've found. The bezels are held together by 6 small hex-head screws. The case comes with a tool to fasten the screws. The included tool is adequate, but is pretty small for my large hands. A precision screw driver set with a larger handle is my preferred tool. If you lose a screw, the case comes with one spare. If you need more than one spare, Lunatik may provide replacements. Otherwise, the information about the screw specifications can be a little hard to come by, so I'll tell you here: Metric 1.5mm socket head, M2 thread, 8mm length, 0.4mm pitch (black from heat-treating). A box of 100 screws (plenty to share with friends and family) will cost you about $12 from McMaster-Carr (part # 91290A015) and are indistinguishable from the original screws.
Since the case is screwed together, getting the phone in and out of it takes some work - it's not the sort of thing you'll do on a whim. On the other hand, I don't want to take the phone in and out of the case often, so it's not a problem for me.
Unlike the Griffin Survivor, this case slips easily in and out of my pockets without turning the pockets inside out. Also unlike most other cases, rather than cut-outs for the volume and mute switches, there are form-fitting buttons molded into the impact truss and the mute control slides up or down to actuate the switch. In the Taktik Extreme for 4S, the mute control "lever" (for lack of better word) was quite a bit longer, making it easy to actuate accidentally while in your pocket. In this Taktik Strike, the control is *just* long enough to provide its function and accidental movement is virtually eliminated.
Many people complain about the narrow headphone and sync/charge port openings, so if you're thinking about this case, be warned that - like all the Lunatik cases - the openings are pretty slim. It fits the standard Apple headphone and lightning cables, but after-market headphones (and to a lesser extent, lightning cables) are a hit-or-miss proposition.
Despite any potential shortcoming of this case, the level of protection is second to none. If anything, it might be a little overkill, but if you're worried about dropping your phone, this case will let you rest easy.
