Item: Ultra thin Slim 0.3mm matte protective back case skin cover for HTC ONE 2 M8

URL: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=221408515831

I just got this. Excellent price. Super thin. No bulk. Adds a matte finish to the phone for improved grip. Only down side is the bottom is open. I got the gray color.

Its actually quite a waste to buy such a case, it will provide no drop protection, and if you are just using it for improved grip and to avoid fingure prints, use a carbon skin with matte finish, or just buy a full body wet install screen protectors.

This type of case isn't for drop protection. That's a given. The full body protectors either don't cover the sides or tend to peel away after some time. I had a vinyl skin from dbrand on my M7 and loved it but the M8 skins aren't out yet and this case only costs $1.49 + $1.99 shipping.

almost same thing here
I just got mine today except the bottom is fully cover... well outside usb and headphone jack. I didn't buy this for drop protection its purely to keep the aluminum edges from dings and scratches as well as protect the slightly raised glass on each side of the phone. Mine is clear which I like as well you can still see the silver and HTC branding I like it.

It looks like the official TPU case that comes for free with the international version.
