Simple protection and some added grip for your M8 in a variety of great color options
When you're looking for just the right case for your phone, there's no shortage of options with crazy bells and whistles out there. From multi-layer systems to belt clips and integrated screen protectors, there's a lot of cruft you can strap onto your phone. The Incipio NGP Impact Resistant Case for the HTC One M8 doesn't offer any of that, but it does have a good bit of protection for your phone in a slim form factor that's easy to wrap your hand around.
If you're just looking for a basic case that doesn't add bulk or complication to your HTC One M8, and will keep it safe through the few bumps and drops in life, read along and learn a bit more about the Incipio NGP Impact Resistant Case.
There isn't a whole lot to the NGP Impact Resistant Case, as it's a simple piece of stiff rubber with a grippy coating to the outside of it. It slips onto the One M8 comfortably, and has all of the right cutouts for your volume keys, power button and microphones around the device. It does provide a pretty sizeable lip around the front of the phone, but thats rather unavoidable with a softer rubber case such as this that needs to grip around the phone.
While it may not be the absolute slimmest case out there (it has to have some "impact resistance" after all), I found it to do a great job making the One M8 a bit easier to hold by providing some grip and thickness to an otherwise slender and slick device. At the same time it isn't thick enough to get in the way of using any of the buttons or function of the phone — a delicate balance that not every case offers.
The Incipio NGP Impact Resistant Case for the HTC One M8 will set you back a simple $18.95 from ShopAndroid, and is available in four colors — black, turquoise, pink and mercury — with the non-black options adding some translucency as well.
