Default Supcase Hybrid/Gel Case for M8

I got this case and was amazed by the great fit it had to the phone! It arrived in some great packaging and was so happy they had easy to remove protective film on the case. Other products have me peeling at it for 20-30 minutes sometimes to get it all off the clear pieces of the case.

I put it on the phone and it slipped right in with that reassuring "snap" sound once the lip of the case came to the front of the device. I have a bodyguardz glass shield on my phone and the lip on the case doesn't interfere with it at all! the sides of the gel feel firm and don't warp or bend away so easily which keeps everything smooth and easy to use.

My only problem is the clear piece on the back. It came with scratches and defects on it. Also the cut out for the secondary mic isnt correct. It's off and the mic sits at the bottom right of the cut out. When holding the case, i place my pinky finger underneath the phone near the usb and headphone cut outs and the gel cuts are SHARP! It feels like I will cut my finger but that won't happen. But it is VERY uncomfortable. It hasn't caused any problems but these three issues have only left it from being great.

EDIT:
I also ordered these:

I have the same case currently. Really love the fit and feel. Also the fact that the back is clear and not frosted was my main buying point. I really feel the m8 needs to be shown off, its by far the most attractive phone I've had or seen.

I have this case as well and the fit and finish is very very good. It is very form fitting and doesn't add much bulk. Also, the TPU is extremely clear compared to other 'clear' TPU cases I've seen. I'll be adding a decal to the back of my phone and it will be able to show through really nice with this case.

i just got this case yesterday and i love the fact that is doesn't add much bulk, definately shows off the aluminum finish, and looks great. my only issue with it is that it kind of bows on the upper and lower portion of the phone and doesn't sluggly the upper and lower sections of the phone. hopefully over time and with the heat from being it my pocket it will correct itself. other then that, love the case! definately worth the little money i actually paid for it. =)
