I can't remember the last time I used a phone without a case. With the advent of Gorrila Glass, screen protectors stopped being a necessity to those who, like me, baby their phones, but a good case has always been and still is a nessesity in protecting a smart phone. The problem I'm having is that the HTC One M8 is too gorgeous to cover up! It only takes one look to notice just how beautiful the phone is. And it's looks WITH function as the unibody design gives the phone a sturdy feel.
The back is a brushed metal that makes the phone look expensive (for lack of a better word.) It's much curvier than the original HTC One. At first, I was worried that this would detract from the high end feel of the phone but now I am finding that it actually adds to the high end feel of the phone by making the phone feel as if it were truly one fluid piece instead of multiple parts put together.
The top is covered with a black "glass" look so as to blend with the power button / IR blaster. (It's the little touches like this that gives the phone a polished look.) While the button on the old HTC One was on the left, the button on the M8 now sits on the right. Normally, switching to a phone with a different power button layout causes a few days of pressing the "ghost" button, but the M8 allows you to wake the phone by simply double tapping or swiping the screen. This particular method of turning on the screen took seconds to become second nature!
The question remains, then. How could I, in good concience, cover such a good looking phone?
With HTC's Dot View case, that's how. It looks awesome AND adds new features!!
