I am gonna drill a little hole in the power button and hope it works. I tested and covered only the power button with my thumb and it would not control anything so I think a small hole or two should be enough. I just got shipping confirmation. I will post a pic after I drill the power button and post if it works.

I've been thinking about ordering it, as I liked the Surface on my One m7 and One XL.

Got the surface with kickstand and holster today. Very nice as always. The kickstand sits further down towards the bottom and does blend in better than on the m7. On the m7 the kickstand was an eyesore, not so on the m8. Feels high quality overall. Very happy with it. Does not add too much bulk.

Let me know if that works. Also, some pictures of the results would be nice.

The Otterbox commuter also "blocks" the IR blaster, but the remote functionality still works.

Can someone with the case comment on if it works or not? And can anyone compare it to the commuter? The kickstand is tempting.

Anything for the best kernel Dev for sense ROMs!

I'm using it now but won't be home for a couple of days. Initial impressions are good, but I'll get some pics up this weekend.

Assuming this and the commuter are similar to the m7 versions (and I think for the most part, at least in terms of thickness and style they are), the dilex is thinner than the otterbox by a good bit. Even with the hump in the middle (which is much less pronounced, and now at the bottom), it was better feeling in the hand, and the soft touch plastic on the dilex is a lot nicer IMO than the otterbox. Seidio is also great about replacing if you have a problem and mine has survived several fairly severe drops and kept the phone perfectly safe. The kickstand has also spoiled me for all other cases that don't have one.

got case today
Got my case today. Its pretty nice. Adds some weight but not too bad.

I cut a little bit out of the power button just using a safety pin and some small snips.

I was able to use the IR blaster, seems I have to be pretty direct so I will probably just widen the hole a little more or make another one. It works just fine though.
