    What do you mean? It doesn't sit flat on the phone screen?

    Yep. Had a screen protector on, took it off to try and wasted a screen protector because it still wouldn't sit flat on the screen.

    I read that is a common complaint with the dot view cases. Unfortunately, I didn't see any resolution to issue.

    You don't say what type of screen protector you have, but if it is a tempered glass protector, they are thicker and the case won't close with it. I put the glass protector on when I bought the phone but had to order the dot view case. When the case arrived it wouldn't close. I returned the case, $50 is just too much money for a cheap piece of plastic on the back with a rubber flip door on the front with holes on it.

    The idea is interesting but just looking at the case made me realize that it wasn't worth that kind of money. The case went back.

    While I agree $50 is expensive for a case, the front of the case has a capacitive layer in it which is why it works with touch input. A little bit more than a cheap plastic case, if you ask me

    I wonder if there will be any aftermarket dot case?

    I made this complaint in the other thread. I returned one because of it and the new one does the same thing. It makes the notifications look like **** and really makes the case worthless.

    Just got my dot view case yesterday and it closes perfectly. Actually snaps shut. Hope it lasts.

    I just put my Dot View case on and I have the same issue. I have a Slickwrap (Buy iPhone 5S Skins, Cases, Glow Wraps, HTC One Case, MacBook Skins, and iPad Skins | SlickWraps) on the back of mine (not over the entire back) so I'm assuming that's why mine won't close :/ I really don't wanna waste that Slickwrap just to find out though does anyone have any experience with this?

    Just bought a dot view for my m8 since htc had them on sale for 10 I figured I'd give it a try.... Running into the same issue cover doesn’t lay completely flat the dot view works but doesn't look as good... I read some people said it works itself out with reg use and others say it never fixed itself... Just wondering if there's a trick to fixing it..... I have nothing on the phone to get in the way either no screen protector etc.

    If the dot view case is brand new, it will not close (sit against the screen flush)...

    With some time and wear and tear, it will... This almost always happens with new dot view cases. As you start using it, it loosens up the 'hinge' portion and it will sit flat against your screen with time when you close it...

    One other thing I noticed was if I hold the phone upside down without holding the cover it swings open is that normal? Or is magnet weaker than it should be
