8 HTC Desire Eye cases to keep your selfie smartphone safe

If you can’t stop photographing yourself then the HTC Desire Eye, with its dual 13-megapixel cameras, could be a real temptation. This mid-range, super-selfie smartphone is tough enough to survive a dunk, but a drop onto a hard surface could be the end of it. The matte, polycarbonate body is tough, but it’s also slippery. You really need to protect that 5.2-inch screen. Behold the best HTC Desire Eye cases money can buy.

Body Glove Satin Case ($18)

Starting out in wetsuits, Body Glove knows how to make something tough and water-resistant. The Satin is one of their slim everyday cases, but it can handle a dunk, absorb the shock of a fall, and it has antimicrobial protection built-in. The textured sides add grip, the cut-outs are precise for uninterrupted access to features, buttons, and ports. The brushed aluminum effect for the back panel adds a touch of class.

Case-Mate Naked Tough Case ($30)

Minimalism is the idea behind this slim, completely transparent case. The HTC Desire Eye’s design is allowed to shine through. The only details are the chrome button covers, the Case-Mate name down the side, and the small logo on the back. It may be lightweight, but it doesn’t scrimp on protection. It comes in two pieces and the hard shell is tough, supported by a bumper that can absorb shock. Precise cut-outs allow you to access and use the ports and camera.

OtterBox Defender Series Case ($50)

This rugged case is designed to keep your HTC Desire Eye safe from bumps, scratches, drops, and whatever else life may throw at it. There are three layers of protection with internal foam, a polycarbonate shield, and a rubber exterior. You’ll also find a built-in screen protector, button covers, and port plugs. There’s a holster with belt clip that doubles as a stand. It is a bit chunky, especially at the front round the screen, but it will keep your phone pristine. It comes in black or rose.

Amzer Pudding Case ($8)

You can’t really argue this case is much of a looker, but it does two things well and it’s very cheap. It’s made of malleable TPU, so it’s super easy to fit and it will absorb some shock from bumps and falls. It’s also textured to add some much needed grip, so you’re less likely to drop it in the first place. You’ve got accurate openings for the camera and ports, and there are covers for the buttons. Bit may be basic, but it’s effective.
