Skin Cases for HTC One (M8)

Generally affordable and simple in design, we don't expect much out of these cases except to buffer from unforeseen drops and (maybe) sport a unique design or two. They come in wide variety of colors to choose from and can really set your HTC One (M8) apart from the crowd; in a good way, of course.

Our first pick is the Bugdroid Circuit Case for the HTC One (M8). It features a sleek design without any unnecessary bulk to weight it down. There are a series of circuits embedded into the back of each case that reach from top to bottom as well as access to all the ports, buttons, cameras, you name it. If you'd like, take a closer look at the HTC One (M8) Bugdroid Circuit Case in our brief hands-on review.

For something a little more substantial, the Body Glove Satin Case for the HTC One (M8) is a great choice. This skin is completely wear-resistant and has a unique brushed aluminum finish on the back. High gloss accents around the case set the contrast just perfectly and the toughness of the edges alone will help set your worries aside of ever making a boo-boo.

Flip Cases for HTC One (M8)

This is where style meets functionality. Flip cases are great for consolidating your pocket space and even guarding against scratches and impacts.

Our #1 customer favorite right now is HTC's Dot View Case for the One (M8). For good reason, too. The case's ability to display and interact with most basic features of your device through the front cover is nothing short of awesome. This feature alone eliminates the need to expose your display to the elements when you're just checking the time, weather, or even to answer a call. We also went hands-on with the HTC Dot View Case, so feel free to get all the deets if you so desire.

Next on the list is Seidio's LEDGER Flip Case for the HTC One (M8). While not as fancy with all the bells and whistles as the above mentioned case, it does prove itself in protecting your device with a little extra flare. The Italian polurethane it's made from is extremely soft and comfortable in hand and, on the inside there's even a slot for storing your credit card, cash or ID while on the go.

Hybrid Cases for HTC One (M8)

Those seeking more protection against damage that don't mind the extra layers will find that hybrid cases are your best bet.

Spigen's Slim Armor Case for the HTC One (M8) is a more modern take on your average hybrid case. Aside from its attractive, sleek design the glossy UV protected polycarbonate shell is an instant eye-catcher; no matter the color scheme you choose. The inner TPU core shields against those nasty impacts with a unique and efficient air cushioned absorption system.

For the more rugged-types out there, Urban Armor's Composite Hybrid Case for the HTC One (M8) is top-notch for handling the extremes of outdoor activies and labor. Without a doubt, this case is most appealing for its die-hard looks. It's designed for action, inside and out, able to withstand mostly anything you throw at it. Definitely a solid choice for the hard working HTC One (M8) user.

Body Films and Screen Protectors for HTC One (M8)

For some, cases just don't cut it. Generally it's the compromise in form factor that becomes the deal-breaker. Luckily there are alternatives to preventing wear and tear of your HTC One (M8).

When it comes to protecting your HTC One (M8)'s display from scratches, the BodyGuardz HD Anti-Glare Screen Protectors are a great choice. They're easy to apply, hardly affect clarity and best of all, they help eliminate annoying glare! You get two per package, which is ideal for those who are new to applying them and/or to simply have a backup when the first one gets too worn.

Here's something that the whole HTC One (M8) can enjoy: BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Full Body Film. Made from a strong PVC base, this film covers the back of your HTC One (M8) with a carbon fiber look and feel that enhances your grip and keeps scratches at bay. Available in black, red and white, this cover is a great alternative if cases aren't your cup of tea.
