I really want a case that can still show the great design this phone has, while providing some protection, and I believe many of you will as well. I also ordered a Glass Screen Protector from Aliexpress to go along.

This are my findings:

Spigen Case Ultra Fit Capsule (TPU)
http://www.spigen.com/htc-one-m8-cas...t-capsule.html

Case-Mate BARELY THERE (Hard Plastic)
http://www.case-mate.com/htc-one-m8-...there-case.asp

Case-Mate NAKED TOUGH (Hard Plastic + TPU bumper)
http://www.case-mate.com/htc-one-m8-...ough-case.asp#

Exact Prism Series Slim-Fit Transparent Case (TPU)
http://www.amazon.com/Exact-Prism-Se.../dp/B00JAR24SU

KAYSCASE Slim Hard Shell Cover (TPU)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...0-20&m1k=vb_ac

Do you have any of these? Which one would you recommend and why? Itīs very difficult to make a decision based on the videos out there, which are normaly only unpackaging...

Cheers

I have the spigen case its very nice and clear. But is kinda bulky.

I really like this Cimo case I got off eBay, but i wish it was clear and not frosted.
eBay

I dont like plastic cases, always think it will scratch my phones.

I had to send the spigen clear back.
The cutout for the flash is too close.
Ruins flash pictures.
The entire rim of the case lights up when the flash fires!
I suppose if using the camera flash isn't your thing it would make a great alert with a mod/app that uses the flash as the LED alert, etc.
And yes it feels a bit big.
Also it has a yellowish tinge on the edges.
The black version would be fine but the power button is covered so the IR blaster would be useless...

The new Tech21 case might be worth waiting for.

I searched for a clear case from tech 21 but didn't find any. Can you please post the link for the case you're talking about?
Thanks

I also think so but I can't seem to find any real review of the case. Do you have it? Some posters say it dosent add any additional grip so the phone continues do be slippery.
