One recent user said that it actually created a smudge/scratched his screen and that kind of scares me because I just bought the phone for a crap load of money and I don't want to scratch it. I have been a M7 user for almost two years and it doesn't have a single scratch on it. The reason I am hesitant about the Dot View is because it's a flip case and even though I bought the HTC Double Dip Flip case for M7 when I first got it with excitement, I ended up ditching it for a normal back cover about a week later because it's a pain as a daily-driver.
My M8 came with a cover inside the box (which I am assuming is standard with any M8) and it actually does a decent job but I am not a fan of rubber-feel cases and I prefer plastic ones. The only problem with back covers is that when my M7 accidentally fell of the table last week, its screen got shattered and I was very upset about it. I am pretty sure if I had the Double Dip Flip cover on, that wouldn't have happened.
Any information, thoughts, and advice are much appreciated.
