    Default HTC One (M8): What is everyone using for cases?

    At the Verizon store all they had were huge Otterboxes and I refuse to use a case that more than doubles the thickness of my phone. HTC isn't selling the dot matrix case yet as far as I can tell - the AC Review says they're available in grey but htc's website doesn't show grey as a color option and the other colors shows "out of stock" . For now I ordered a generic $10 tpu case off of Amazon until something better comes along.

    The dot matrix case is expensive but maybe an aftermarket company will come out with something that has similar functionality.

    I'm currently using this incipio case that was at verizon until I can get a dot view case. Don't really like it. Already took it off last night and used the phone at home without it. Love the feel of the phone, really hate putting a case on it to cover up it's design....

    Why on earth would you put a plastic case on your metal phone?

    I bought an Incipio Feather Case and had it overnight shipped to me.

    HTC One M8 feather Ultra-Thin Snap-On Case | Incipio feather | Incipio

    It's extremely thin, adds a bit of protection to prevent scratching of the aluminum, and gives it a slight bit rougher feel so it makes the phone less "slick". I used the same case on my M7.

    I'm going to try the dot matrix case because it looks awesome. We'll see how long it lasts, tho. I usually go naked.

    I'm giving this one a shot, it's supposed to arrive sometime in the next couple of hours (ordered it at 11PM last night, gotta love Local Express Delivery). I would rather not cover the phone, but I also know it will get dropped at least a couple of times, so a minimal clear TPU should do the trick.

    Amazon.com: [RED SHIELD] [ANTI-SLIP] HTC One M8 Case Protective [Ultra Fit] Durable Crystal Silicone TPU Protective Case for The All New HTC One / HTC M8 / HTC One 2 / HTC One 2014 Case (2014) - Clear (carried by Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint):

    For my One M7 I used a similarly cheapo clear Cimo TPU case - protected it from a couple of nasty falls (the corners of my case are quite scratched but the actual phone is not) while still showing the beauty of the phone, it has yellowed a bit though.

    Just ordered a poetic atmosphere case and a smoke color bug droid case. May stop by local Verizon store to see what they gave after work.

    Not as big a deal if the phone falls on its side or back, but if it falls face down and slides a few feet across asphalt that way - as my M7 did about a month ago - you will want that little bit of a bumper and protection around the edge of the (non-metal) screen that a case provides...

    I always prefer the old Blackberry style slide in/out pouch case. I prefer to have something that covers the screen when it's not in my hand. It adds a little bulk in the case, but easy to get out of the case.

    What case is that? Actually doesn't look bad. How much was it?

    Edit: nevermind, found it! http://www.verizonwireless.com/acces...ew-htc-one-m8/

    I wonder who makes it.

    For my One M7 I used a similarly cheapo clear Cimo TPU case - protected it from a couple of nasty falls (the corners of my case are quite scratched but the actual phone is not) while still showing the beauty of the phone, it has yellowed a bit though.
    So this finally arrived - fits snugly and forces me to use a little more pressure on the power and volume buttons - which is a good thing since it is too easy without it. But it is a frosted clear, which lightens the Gunmetal Gray (may work well with the silver though) not a clear clear so it's back to the drawing board. No biggie since it was $5. Think I will try this one from Spigen, it says Crystal Clear soft TPU and Spigen is well-known.

    Amazon.com: [STRONG-FLEX] Spigen HTC One M8 Case Clear **NEW Release** [Ultra Fit] [Capsule Clear] Premium Clear TPU Case Soft for The All New HTC One / HTC M8 / HTC One 2 / HTC One 2014 Case (2014) - ECO-Friendly Packaging - Capsule Clear (SGP10810)

    Aww that's annoying. Such a sharp looking case too (showing off a sharp looking phone). Makes the decision between this and the Spigen Slim Armor a bit easier for me (if I even end up getting the phone).

    This Verizon case looks just like this other case I found on Amazon, but there's more colors available on Amazon: Amazon.com: Exact Prism Series Slim-Fit Transparent Case for HTC One M8 Clear/Red: Electronics

    It's nice but, to me, leaves too much of the metal exposed to scratches and damage.

    Nice. It's a shame it covers the IR port tho.
