Yes had it for a couple of weeks. If you want minimal it serves it purpose

Thanks. But does it provide more grip or is the phone still slippery? Do you think the naked though is a better option?

Just like with my previous M8 case reviews, a vendor send me in addition to S5 cases a few samples of M8 cases. As I stated before, I don't have M8 phone, so I took a number of pictures to show you how it looks without a phone. Since I received exactly the same cases for S5 which I reviewed together with a phone, I would like to provide you a link to my review where you can see it in more details and with my impressions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2733694

If anybody purchased this case for their M8, please share your pictures in this thread. The last but not least, though Case-Mate offers some very nice coupons, make sure to check with Amazon where often you can find these for almost half a price.

Pictures of Naked Tough (sorry, had to use a colored paper since the case is transparent).

I love my Naked Tough all besides one major flaw. The power button is very stiff, you can't tell at all when you are pushing it and I have found myself wondering if it was even working at times. I have never felt such unresponsive buttons. I May try to mod it to work soon, if I do I will let you know how it works.

Just ordered one of these. What does the back part feel like? Is it like a tpu feel or like the case mate barely there hard shell type of feel?
