Protect your brushed-metal Android with one of these 20 HTC One M8 cases

You can argue all day about the advantages of Android over iOS and vice versa, but Apple has long been in a class of its own when it comes to build quality. Last year’s HTC One stepped into that class, but the HTC One M8 takes things further. Ask the smartphone mirror on the wall and it will tell you the One M8 is the fairest of them of all (yes, we just made a Snow White reference). This is no shallow, brushed aluminum beauty either. The One M8 is a cutting edge smartphone with specs to match.

If you keep it naked then you’ll never get anything done. You’ll waste hours gazing at it; people will keep coming up and asking about it; and there’s always the horrible possibility that you’ll drop it. Snagging one of the best HTC One M8 cases is the right thing to do, and you can always slip it off at night, in the privacy of your own home.

Urban Armor Gear Navigator Case ($35)

The angular, futuristic, industrial look employed in UAG cases always impresses. This is the kind of case that a space marine puts on his phone. It’s comprised of a hard armor shell with a soft core that can absorb shock and impact. The corners, where the protection is most needed, are reinforced and help to stop it slipping off surfaces. Cut-outs are precise, ensuring no flash glare problems or muffled audio. It looks heavy, but it’s actually surprisingly light. The Navigator is white, but you can pick up a clear model or go for orange, black, or dark blue.

Griffin Reveal Case ($25)

You can keep the gorgeous design of the HTC One M8 on show with Griffin’s revealing clear back case. It’s a one-piece hard polycarbonate case with a rubber bumper and highlights. The cut-outs are exact and the case is very thin at 1.6mm, so it really is a subtle way to add a layer of protection. It’s not the toughest case on the block, but it will stop scratches from afflicting that beautiful body.

Pure Gear DualTek Extreme Shock Case ($35)

It’s definitely not sexy, but Pure Gear’s case is designed to ensure that you don’t drop and seriously damage your HTC One M8. It’s a classic dual-layer design with heavily reinforced corners to soak up the immediate impact of a tumble. There are also panels on the sides to aid your grip so you don’t drop the phone in the first place. It’s a bit bulky and drab-looking, but it will protect your phone.

Body Glove ShockSuit Case ($40)

This is military-grade protection you can count on in a crisis. It has a hard shell polycarbonate layer and a separate shock absorbent rubber outer layer, so falls don’t need to be a cause for panic. The rubber provides enhanced grip, there are covers for the ports, and covers for the controls, except the power button. You’ll also be glad to find that the speakers are uncovered. To round things off, a screen protector is provided.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Case ($20)

What do you get if you cross a unicorn and a beetle? Apparently, you get a really tough case for your HTC One M8 at a distinctly easy-going price. We don’t know where the name came from, but this combination of polycarbonate and TPU is ideal for protecting your phone from bumps and falls. The front cover actually has a screen protector built-in, so there’s no worry about carefully applying it. The port covers are good and the frosted power button works with the IR blaster. The only slight downside is the flash glare if you snap a photo with the case on.

Incipio DualPro Shine Case ($35)

This dual layer offering is our pick of Incipio’s bunch. There’s a shock resistant inner core in black, which is covered by a brushed aluminum outer shell in silver or black. This case can handle bumps and knocks, and it will keep your phone pristine. The cut-outs are precise, so there’s no problem operating your HTC One M8 with the case on. The DualPro Shine strikes a good balance between protection and style, your phone won’t be embarrassed to be seen wearing this.

You’ll never have to worry about those heart-stopping moments when your phone slips from your grasp with this case. A rubber lip on the front and rubber ridges that run round the sides and across the back ensure that your HTC One M8 will stay put when you lay it down and won’t slip easily from your hands. It also creates a pretty snazzy design in black, black/white, or purple. There are also rubberized button covers, full cut-outs, and a shiny hard shell.

There’s also a flip open cover made from Italian polyurethane, which has a cloth-like texture on the outside and soft microfiber on the inside. There’s even room for a discreet card slot in the interior, so you can slide an ID or credit card in there.

Who does style like the French? This premium leather case is handcrafted and the quality is high enough to make it a perfect match for your HTC One M8. It’s a flip forward case that protects all sides without blocking access to anything. It holds your phone snugly in place and the inner lining is embossed with the Noreve logo. You can choose the exterior leather in whatever color you like, and there are optional extras for a fee including your choice of interior color and a belt clip attachment.

This official case from HTC has a really interesting dot matrix design that works with the One M8’s gestures to give you quick notifications when you double tap on the closed cover. You can also swipe down from the top to activate voice commands and use your phone without even opening the case. The front is a kind of rubber material and there’s a soft-touch plastic backing for all round protection. The fit is perfect although the front cover will obscure the camera when you open it.
