Default M8 carbon fiber case

Nothing special but thought I'd share. Loving it. Just arrived from Hong Kong today...it's a very tight fit to the phone and provides great shell protection to the back and ends of the phone. It cost 12 bucks with free shipping and came with an anti reflective screen protector. Shipped in about 10 days.

EBay seller's name is platinumarrow if anyone's interested.

Looks similar to an OSIR one I used to have for my iPhone.

I'm a huge fan of anything carbon fiber. But 12 bucks? That seems a little cheap for something made out of CF, doesn't it?

EDIT: It's plastic with a CF finish. Still cool. But now you've got me looking for a case actually made of carbon fiber lol

Let me know if you come across one.. I would love a real CF case even though they might be pricey

I will. Haven't found one yet, all of the ones I've found are plastic with a CF finish. I'll keep looking though

I've read that real carbon fiber can interfere with cell signals, so you might want to keep that in mind.

Maybe that's why I'm having such a hard time finding one :P

The only thing I've found so far is this: http://blog.laptopmag.com/best-htc-one-cases?slide=7

CF case for the M7, nothing at all for the M8 but skins. Also, this particular case isn't on their website anymore. So I dunno. But maybe CaseMate will release a real CF case for the M8 at some point or another :P

I still love it. For what it cost and the protection it's giving me I am happy
