this case offers little to no protection to the phone at all. it will most likely only cover scratches to the back surface.

Mine arrived today. I'm not 100% convinced I have a genuine Baseus case to be honest. Fit is not bad, but quite loose down the side. What makes me suspiscious though is the packaging. As someone else noted earlier in the thread, the packaging talks about other handsets on one side. It has a HTC ONE M8 sticker over the original sticker on the front of packaging. The barcode sticker is placed over the original barcode sticker.

Search for first barcode links to the S5 version rest of the packaging references (Greek/European origin):

Search for second barcode links to M8 version (Taiwainese/Eastern origin):

The other thing I'm noticing from some of the photos posted in this thread is that the 'BASEUS' logo on the rear seems to vary in height. Use the M8's bottom black horizontal line as a datum point and look at where the B starts in various photos in here.

Others that have posted in here have blatant copies. The 'dirty' look. The camera cut outs completely different. Seems to be a very popular case to copy. It's either that, or sellers are selling on imperfects and bodging the packaging to suit.

I got mine yesterday and the fits perfect and the box looks the same as yours but the numbers on the barcode and Baseus is different but that could be down to the fact that I got the dark one.

Do yours have a slightly textured back on the case?

Do anyone else find it hard to use the power button with the case on?

Yeah there is a texture to the back.

Power button is really tricky with the case on too.

Mine came in a box with htc one m8 stuck over a galaxy s5 sticker, the case however was obviously new and crystal clear, cutouts were spot on and the build is nice for $4, sides are a bit loose but not falling off or anything, they don`t move unless i pull at them. If mines a fake, I can`t imagine the real one being much better.

The sides of mine are tight and fit perfect as does the rest of the case and the cut-outs are perfect. Only problem is power button but I now have a lock app on it so I don't have to touch the power button much now.

For the price it was a bargain, so much so I have ordered a clear one as well plus the postage was super quick.

I bought another two from Amazon instead of Ebay and I bought it from the seller "Forester". This time it came in boxes similar above but I still get a yellow tint off the clear one. The dark smoke one looks fine and it has way cleaner cuts for the holes but it's still a bit loose... I wonder is there a way to put heat on it and shrink it a bit.

I'm tempted to use a small nose heat gun on the sides.
