    So, what I loved about the HTC 8X was the screen cover that came attached to the phone when you first use it, that shows what each buttons do etc. Using the touch screen was so much smoother with that cover. Anyone knows how i can buy that same cover again?

    I bought Nillkin (NILLKIN ??) brown one.
    Excellent case. Looks beautiful.

    Wow. They have some really nice cases. Still hate to cover my 8X, but they look good. What is the finish of that case? Is plastic, soft-touch like the 8X itself, rubber, smooth or what?

    A lot of good reviews on this case. I would try one if it came in some colors other than black.
    Does this offer screen protection?

    I think I'm going to try the HTC one. My main concern is screen damage however, so it looks like I'll need to buy a few screen protectors too!

    I cannot determine the material. Yes its plastic, but looks a little like rubberized plastic and at the same time its a little slippy

    As about screen protection. Guys, how do you want to protect screen with case??? :)

    Because the glass is level with the edge and runs right to the edge if you drop it on one of the corners it will break pretty easily. To give you an idea I dropped my 8X while running, onto a concrete floor it hit flat and slid along and it didn't have a scratch. I then dropped it with a minimal cases (like the incipio feather) from about 1.5 feet onto a rubberized floor and the screen cracked. If you drop it onto it's corners you have a good change of breaking it.

    The best case for this kind of protection is one with a raised edge around the edge of the screen. If you flip it over the glass won't touch the surface it is on and the edge will absorb the impact if it drops on one of the corners.

    yes. it has a raised edge bordering the screen. the best part is if you order and don't like it, send it back to amazon.

    The best overall case is the Doubleshot Hard Shell by HTC. It's only available in blue. This case is awesome, it has the best feel and it fits the body of the 8X like a glove. You and other people won't be able to note the difference with the case on. Consider getting it before any other.

    I also have an Incipio Feather (grey) and Incipio DualPro (black). Both are great but the DualPro protects the screen if you put the phone face down.

    You can have a look at the brief reviews I wrote for these cases. I took plenty of photos. the DualPro review contains photos and comments of the Doubleshot Hard Shell as well.

    Here are the links:

    Here's the Doubleshot: does not add bulk at all, retains 8X form factor, is not hard to put on or take off (in my opinion), but is slippery!

    This is the Rock Hard case and it is very similar to the Incipio Feather, I love it the best and it looks great and also retains the great form factor. Comes in several colors, but this color matches the HTC yellow/lime color perfectly. Got it through Amazon. (Mentioned in another thread that I got it through Ebay, forgot it was actually Amazon.).

    Yeah, the doubleshot is a nice case. But, if I am going to put on a case, I want more protection than no case. The doubleshot, to me, really gives no extra protection. I guess if you want to make your 8X blue, that will work. But my phone is blue.

    I hate to cover my 8x because it looks so good, but I'm a little nervous about dropping it and having the screen shatter. So I want a case that has a little lip that protects the screen. The Nillkin Super looks pretty good, but it seems that they are made in Japan and a little difficult to order. That Rock Hard case looks sweet and Speck makes a cool case for the 8X.

    When I choose case, I think about protection back of phone from scratches, not the entire phone.
    Want total protection? Buy metal cage :)
    And if phone falls, I don't think half of millimeter of plastic protects it :)

    If you want to protect the screen look for the Incipio DualPro or Otterbox cases. Most users, I think, are trying to protect the back of their phones from scratches. The Doubleshot is not meant to "make your phone blue", come on. It's like the majority of phone cases. It provides protection for the back of the device.

    Having said that, you have to look for cases that suit your needs. Neither the Nillkin or that Rock Hard will protect your screen. Check the Incipio DualPro or Otterbox Commuter on Amazon to see what you want for the screen edges.

    Do you want the Beast?
    Would you like the Beauty?

    I use the Beauty @ Work and Socializing.
    I use the Beast when I'm Biking, Drinking, or Partying.

    Your choice, different lifestyle. I actually like the feel of the Trident Case (and the color lol) but I figured Otterbox is more reputable.

    Can anyone recommend a good flip case for the HTC 8x?

    Something like Amazon.com: Rock Big City PU Leather Flip Cover Case for HTC 8X C620e C620a (Dark Blue): Cell Phones & Accessories would be awesome. Slim form factor.

    I'm currently using the Diztronic TPU case for my Black 8x. Normally I don't use a case, but the corners are peeling so badly on my device the case is more for looks than protection. I will say that the lip can sometimes be annoying during typing, but it's also wonderful when setting the phone down on a table.

    Has anyone seen a bumper? I don't want a case but I also don't want to have to worry about my corners peeling. At this point, that Nillkin case is the only one I've seen in this thread that I would even consider using.. and doubt it would last me more than a week before I was fed up and ripped it off.

    edit: I would easily pay $50+ for something like this. I know that one isn't available for the 8x, but that would be pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

    I have this one and I really like it. Fits nice and isn't that big. There is 2 mm of rubber lip to protect the screen which will certainly save my screen once or twice.

    I've been using my speck yellow and blue case for about 2 months and love it! Goes really nice with the blue and it really does protect! I've dropped my phone plenty of time all sorts of angles and heights..its practically bulletproof! I'll be posting a review sometime this week!

    I got an Incipio DualPro for my wife's 8X and it's pretty nice. The rubber inner cover could be just a little tighter as it's just a hair loose at the top, but it's decent. Looks good and feels good, if you have to have a case. I have a Speck case (white) coming today or tomorrow and will compare it to the Incipio.

    I got another 8X case today, the BodyGlove: Amazon.com: Body Glove HTC 8x 4g (Model: HTC-6990) BodyGlove Diamond Hard Shell Brushed Charcoal with Gray Trim 9323401 Retail Package: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Wow, I am really impressed with it. The fit is perfect. It is all one piece of rubber and plastic so it is a little thinner than the Incipio. It has some drop protection because there is some rubber on the inside, but not quite as much as the DualPro. It has a little lip above the screen so there is some protection there. The buttons are covered and pretty good, but for some reason the power button is just a little harder to press than the DualPro, but still easier than with no case. The outside is mostly plastic, so it is more slippery than no case, but slides into a pocket nicely. Personally, I like the fit and design much better than the DualPro. It gives decent drop protection and looks good.
