Greetings everybody,

so after I pre-ordered my HTC U12+ Translucent Blue, and am currently waiting for a review unit, I started ordering some cases to compare and see which one I'll go with on my all new HTC U12+. I dicided to share my first orders, and to review them as they arrive, updating this thread accordingly.

What I ordered:
  1. QULLOO Clear - Shock absorbing TPU Case
  2. MEINOUXU Slim Rubber Frosted Matte Plastic - Hard Case

What contributers ordered:
  1. Poetic Carbon Shield by @jrocka312
  2. Moonmini PU Leather Case by @tbalden
  3. Tudia Slim Fit EXTREME by @MrN1484
  4. mumbi TPU Frosted Case by @SuperFredF

I will add to this list, as either I'm getting new cases, or you are adding new ones with your own reviews. For the later case, I'll post a linkt to your post in the OP, and add it to the list.

Now have fun reading and participating at this thread.

1) [QULLOO] Crystal Clear - Shock absorbing TPU Case

In the low-budget segment there are, as usual, a large number of cases. I usually use one until I receive my higher quality, pre-ordered cases - like something from Spigen. The QULLOO TPU Softcase differs significantly from the Spigen Liquid Crystal Case. Although this case also comes with a so-called Dottet Buffer surface on the inside, instead of the air cushions in the Spigen Case, it has clear thickening at the corners, and a matt reinforcement in the area of the Edge Sense 2.0 sensors.

In the test, however, the matt reinforcement was quite a hindrance. If the U12+ recognizes the short squeeze, as well as the squeeze and hold action correctly, there were always problems with the double tap action, because it was not recognized right away.

Test result: good (2)

2) KingShark Transparent TPU Case

Another case in the low-budget segment is the KingShark Transparent TPU Case. It is significantly thinner than the cases of QULLOO, or spigen, but also comes in a so-called dottet buffer surface inside. This prevents, as in the case of the Spigen Liquid Crystal Case, unsightly blistering and/or staining between the smooth surface of the HTC U12+ and the case as such.

Furthermore, it does not possess "Air Cushion Technology"

1) [HTC] Transparent - Hard Case

Review in the works.

2) [MEINUOXU] Slim Rubber Frosted Matte Plastic - Hard Cover

As with TPU cases, there is an almost endless selection in the low-budget segment of hard cases - especially on portals like AliExpress. In order to have an alternative, and thus independent comparison possibility, to the supplied HTC Crystal Clear Hardcase, I also ordered some cases via AliExpress in this case - since each one only cost about 0,80 €. The cases have a decisive disadvantage compared to the HTC hardcase: they lack the necessary cut-outs in the area of the edge sense sensors. Furthermore, the cutouts for the volume buttons and the power button do not match the positions on the frame of the HTC U12+.

A test was not necessary due to the shortcomings mentioned above.

Test result: insufficient (6)

I'm really curious about how much attention case and screen protector companies give the U12+ due to HTC's decreased popularity.

Does anyone know if the screen has a curve to it at all? I'm real worried we will be in another situation that you can't find a decent tempered glass. I guess that's for another thread though.

No official accessories I know of at least. Well there is one of course: the clear hard case coming in the box! Will add this right away.

Glad there are one or two Spigen TPU cases upcoming, as I really love to have those on my phones.

OP update.
Added first impressions to the cases that I already received. This OP will for sure be a WIP - Work in Progress - until my U12+ has been in use for at least 1 - 2 months.

The glass appears to be entirely flat until the edges, until it forms an M9-esque 90 degree bend and goes into the aluminum body. Think as if the entire front portion of the M9 were glass.

At least, that's what I'm getting out of the pictures that have come out so far.

Yes absolutely flat to the edges.
