    It's got some cool features and all, but it's ugly. The One is beautiful craftsmanship, I don't want to hide it. I'm seriously considering going with Verizon's silicone case and a nice screen protector instead. It's just so purrrrty I don't wanna hide it behind a fly swatter.

    I saw the dot case today and am unimpressed. It's just a plastic cover with holes in it, that the screen shows through. Kind of cheap looking. The idea sounds better and the photos of it (enhanced?) look better than in real life. Basically it is very low crude resolution, dots per square inch. (I should have counted the holes per square inch.)
    The phone itself is sleek and beautiful!

    I don't care for the dot case either and wouldn't get it if I got the phone. It sure doesn't enhance the looks of it at all.

    I see a large number of M8 Androids around very few DOT cases so I would say no you are not alone. Now if they come out with some cool graphic ones...

    You cannot press anything through the holes. There is a fiber inside.

    I'm wondering how much pocket lint and other small gunk will fall into those holes. Could be harder to clean it out if it can't be poked thru.

    I have the android version... I've never had anything get stuck in any of the holes.

    I can't seem to get Cortana to work with my Dot View case, was there anything special you guys had to do?

    Personally, I think it's impractical. I really don't want to have to flip open a cover every time I get a call. Have to be careful with most of the other cases, though. Most all of them cover the infrared on the top. I went with Verizon's standard carbon fiber case. Throw the belt hanger away and just use the back wrap. Good protection, no obstructed ports, and get a kickstand in the deal.

    Amazon.com: Aduro Shell Holster Combo Case for HTC ONE M8 (Latest Model) with Kick-Stand & Belt Clip (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, US Cellular & Sprint): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Less than half the price Verizon charges for it.

    @Novron Read up more on the Dot View case. It has a cutout for the infrared at the top and you can answer and talk on phone calls with the case closed.

    To the OP, personally, I think it is a bit overpriced, but it does offer some unique functionality. Although, they could have easily enabled that same functionality without the case.

    But it does do what a case is supposed to do, and that is protect the phone.

    I also think the case is highly overrated. The front cover can't even fold flat because of the curvature of the backside. And it offers no real protection at all.

    I knew this one had a cut out, as I said, most don't. Wasn't aware of being able to call through it. That is a nice feature. Probably too much to hope for but I'm guessing it doesn't have wallet slits in the inside cover?

    Actually no...I'm not enamored with it either.

    While it has some nice features with cortana I'm all about protecting my investment...so it's in a case designed for that along with a glass screen protector too..

    Two problems with the Dot View case:
    1) it's not a case, it's an envelope
    2) why cover such a nice looking phone?

    I really love the design of the HTC One but I'm more with the philosophy of Nokia about color, color and color. The case really stands out from the rest. I like the design.

    It's a beautiful screen. Why hide it? Why go backwards to 2bit graphics? I don't get it. That screen is awesome. Don't cover it with this.

    It makes it really difficult to type as well since it doesn't fold flat.

    I think it makes the phone look like a kid's toy. My WP is a Nokia Lumia 920 (the tank). 1.5 yrs with a simple Body Shield screen protector and it still looks like new. I would think that, unless the user is really abusive, the HTC wouldn't need more than that. After all, the screen is what is most likely to suffer damage from a fall, correct?

    If I were to get the HTC, it definitely wouldn't be hidden by the Lego wrapper. The new colors for shells seem to be targeting the teen market.

    I'm one of the ones that love it. It looks great in pictures. But WPCentral pictures are just usually really good I guess. Too good maybe ;). I agree that in person, it may very will be a different story and I change my mind.

    I am loving my m8, I also bought the dot view case, I used it for about one hour, got frustrated with flapping the flap. It is no longer on the phone. Getting rid of that case greatly improved my phone.

    My 822 has been dropped a dozen or more times on concrete and broke only once. It's been dropped on other surfaces numerous times to the point where the back cover flew off and battery came out. No screen protectors and still no scratches on it, though the body has a few nicks.
