    Default Finding HTC M8 slippery

    I'm finding my M8 very slippery when using it. I have to keep a finger at the bottom of the phone to prevent it from slipping out of my hand. Anyone else experience this and have a solution.

    It's going to be a little slippery because it's metal. You can buy a case for it. Ebay and Amazon have a lot of cases. Just Google Search "cases for the HTC One (M8)."
    If my post helped you out...PLEASE be kind and hit the THANKS button.

    Exactly what I did, it's really slippery unless u have a death grip on it. They have tons of cases just for a better grip if u don't want the bulk.

    Don't really like cases they make the phone bulky and covers such a beautiful crafted phone.

    There are cases that are clear gell and lets it's beauty shine through without adding to the bulk very much. I use the clear case on my phones all the time.

    Check out the XDA forums (With sub-forums it is so easy to look for accessories) They have a list of cases other M8 owners use. I wasn't happy with my first one, waiting on a different brand to come in to check it out. Of course if it doesn't please me, then I will do what I should have done in the first place and went through this thread to find one that people are happy with.

    I don't like cases either but yes the M8 is very slippery and I got a Supcase Beetle case and I'm really liking it. Very little bulk and it feels great it also comes in clear but I chose black. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IJ0...ref=mp_s_a_1_1

    I have this case and it's great. A clear hard back with silver trim. Great price too!

    I use this helicopter tape style stuff from Skinomi (I have used invisibile shield in the past but they didn't seem to do a full cover for the M8 and this seems better quality)- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skinomi%C2%A...r-21&m1k=vb_ac

    Its absolutely perfect, no added bulk and you get to show off the good looks without an ugly case. You can also use the stock rubber case that comes with the phone over the top.

    Just put a clear "skin" on the back. You'll have grip and it's invisible. There's some on ebay for $4, or you can find the high-end ones as well.

    I have the gunmetal and my wife has the silver, the gunmetal finish is much more slippery. I'm assuming you have gunmetal as well.

    I suggest a clear tpu if your into the whole case thing. Remember you have six months of screen coverage provided by HTC

    I like to lather my hands with honey before using my gunmetal M8. No slip without any case! But the speakers are now coated, so no more Boomsound. Guess there's always a tradeoff...

    I am from Australia so don't have the screen protection policy and all the Amazon links I can't buy either as they don't ship to OZ. I appreciate all the responses this phone is so underrated I believe is the best phone on the market. The iPhone 6 will look exactly like it. The only thing that lets it down is it keeps slipping out of my hand and yes I have the gunmetal. Even the clear gel1mm cases ruin the phone makes it to bulky for my liking.

    I've got some pics of the skinomi 'skin' on mine, but haven't uploaded them to the PC (they are on my SLR). I will get some pics tonight if I can.

    I didn't think I would feel confident handling the M8 'naked' out in the open, but I now do

    If you prefer to not use a case your "beautiful crafted phone" will slip out of your hand and fall to beautiful crafted smithereens.

    Is that some sort of camera lens protector ?

    The skinomi is similar , but more glossy and no camera lens protector.

    Wow they look amazing will definitely be buying these. Do you guys recommend matte or glossy as I don't want to loose the beautiful screen quality and are they hard to put on the phone?

    I love the thinness of this phone so I didn't want to add bulk to it with a case so I bought a carbon fiber skin for it from HTC One M8 Wraps/Skins , very easy to install and takes care of the slippery feeling

    The skinomi ones may be just fine, it could have also been my poor application
