Official HTC Cases Pics

Pros and Cons:

Pro: looks like it covers entire phone unlike the HTC Clear hard shell case.
- holes so case can be used in charging dock

Cons: No camera protection at all. HTC clear case protects the camera

I want one...

I own the clear hard shell which is official, where are these other official cases?

I'm a sucker for choice... Can't seem to find where to buy.

It's a shame that cases with camera protection can't fit in the dock, and cases that fit in the dock don't protect the camera.

It's not available until May 4th, everywhere I've found it:

Bloody crying shame that it doesn't protect the lens, though. I'm guessing that's because it won't fit in the speaker dock if the lens has anything added around it. (The clear / flat purple cases lack holes for the pogo pins, and hence can't be used with the speaker dock). If that's the case, whomever designed the dock should be shot.

I'm also curious whether these slim cases work with the car dock. I'm guessing not, because it's a fairly tight fit even without a cover.

Seriously, HTC. Fire whomever designed the accessories. There's no reason the lot couldn't have been designed so that the car and speaker docks worked with or without the cases, and that the cases could've provided lens protection. As-is, every single accessory seems to be a compromise somehow. :(

Agreed.

If these cases had some camera protection they would be awesome.

Guys, I bought this clear case in htc concept store here in Singapore.


Will put it on once I get home. EDIT:done





It added quite a bit of a bulk though. The sides are rubbery but the back feels like those plasticky mousepad lol.
Phone can be left on top of table face-down.

Aren't u guys afraid that the phone would overheat with cases that fully cover the back and camera.. My HOX sure gets hot if i play Tegra Games, ii think the metal part that surrounds the camera acts as a heatsink.. I think maybe that is the reason HTC design a case with holes with the camera part more exposed:

HTC appears to be releasing two whole sets of these cases. One has circles, the other has horizontal stripes.

Interesting enough, the LTE version of the One X has a camera that sits half a millimeter inside the metal ring protecting it from scratches a bit more than the international version.. weird.
