One handed use. Don't even think about it. Haha

Feel. It's a nice matte feel . I can see some of the paint already peeling . So the raw aluminum should be visible within a month or so ?

The rubber padding on the back allows great grip for holding and laying down.

Screen protector. Feels awesome. It's glass and advertises as Corning GG. I'm not a fan of the plastic variants but I can add that this one feels almost like the actual screen. No complaints here.
Sound. This is where I was unsure of the product. The design of the speaker grill cover distorts the sound A LOT. It's tolerable on medium but at max sound level the sound waves get distorted and sound very bad.

The bottom speaker grill design directs the sound out of the case which also distorts tremendously.

Overall this could be a deal breaker for me as I listen to my speakers quite often.

Call quality is still good. For earphone talking it'll do. But on speaker it is very distorted .

The other side heard me well.

Overall quality . For being a Chinese product and having a design that looks complicating , it is actually quite good for the price of $23 shipped.

It's kind of like a iron man suit for our phones haha.

Some other info....the USB port cover looks very weak. Weak as in it looks like it will rip off soon if it is aggressively pulled out too many times.

I haven't got to try GPS and WiFi etc because honestly I don't know how to conduct those tests. But they SEEM like they are working as normal. :thumbup:



HTC M8
I just recieved mine, and i had the real lunatik taktik on my i4, which was made out of polycarbonate. this is a realllllllll beastie case. i think my biggest hangup is actually the sound being distorted, i may remove the gortex membrane and see if it helps any. i lost -6dB with it off versus being on (-94 to -100) for signal. hasnt seemed to affect my 4g. ill see if it will grow on me.
Dear lord... please allow this dangerous combination of hair spary, bat slobber, and D.O.T. four automatic transmission fluid to excite my mind, occupy my spirits, and enrage my body, provoking me to kick any man or woman in the back of the head regardless of what he or she has or has not done unto me.

Yeah, the heavier ones are good for outdoors activities. I would completely recommend having a few different ones for different occasions.

I've just ordered one of these cases for when I ride my bicycle. Don't think it'll be good for everyday use, but I'm willing to give it a try. I don't care about the sound distortion though as I use Bluetooth headphones nearly all the time anyway.
