10 HTC One cases: the best body wrappers for your catwalk star

0. phoneArena posted on 02 Apr 2013, 05:54

The HTC One has certainly got it in terms of design. Its slick and toned aluminum unibody just begs to be flaunted, and is one of the best Android phone designs around. Still, a flagship phone comes with a flagship price, and if something happens to your precious, you'll be set back quite a few Benjamins, so wrapping the HTC One in a case sounds like a good idea, no matter how heartbreaking it might be...

Agree! I wish GS3 also has the exact case. GS3 cases are boring..

Samsungs folio cases for their phones are the best I've seen. Cases on a phone like the One lose the premium look and feel, Samsung has managed to improve the quality of a not so premium feeling phone with their OEM case.

The HTC One cases look nice especially the camera hole. It's designed in a raindrop style. I found more good cases herehttp://www.squidoo.com/best-cases-for-htc-one

Hahaha....yeah! Premium feel downgraded to cheap feel. But this is for protection, so, this is not a big deal. :)

makes perfect sense to protect something valuable...
what I dont get is Samsung owners that put plastic over plastic
...not sure what is so valuable that they need to double bag

> what is so valuable that they need to double bag
It is a habit picked up in the later years of High School and carried on throughout all relationships.

The complaint about Samsung Plastic is that they could have used ABS (Lego), Delrin/POM (M-16 Rifle's Stock) or Sustamid (Glass filled Nylon) not to mention Surlyn (Golf Ball Cover). So called "expensive" Plastic does not add a lot to the cost of an Item and greatly improves it compared to using inexpensive Plastic.

HTC used Aluminum for the One and some of us want a Plastic shock protector (which Samsung's Case does not guarantee) and others want Leather and Felt. Some like it raw and are willing to accept the risks.

I personally hate cases on phones although I do recognise that 80% of my customers will actually need them. The Htc one is a beautiful phone, its a shame to see it covered up with a silicone case. However for the vast percentage of users out there its a must.

Looking at this you have to say Samsung could have done the right thing in making the s4 with not so "premium" design as the vast majority of the phones will be covered by a case of some sort anyhow thus hiding the design materials. The design of the Htc one means slower stock production,the s4 yields far higher quantities, in the end both are covered over by silicone.

IMO the HTC Double Dip Flip case ( #2 ) is a much better design than Samsung's...I always wondered why Samsung didn't implement the stand feature with their flip case.

The case is a great idea for protection if you are working in a rough area. like a construction sites or a industrial place.
But I wouldn't put a case on this beautiful beast. It deserve to be show off when I go to meetings and meet up with buddies..

I use an Oakley bag as a sleeve for my phone. Not one scratch after a year. Wont do much if I was careless and dropped it, but most cases wont prevent a scratched screen anyway

I am getting the One, and I prefer not to put a case on. But, that Double Dip Flip looks so gorgeous it complements the design perfectly without hiding the premium feel of it.

it's like putting a sexy evening dress on Miranda Kerr. It just turns you on even more.

It would have been great to include Cases that had either a 'thin Battery back' or an 'end extension' with a Battery on one (or both) ends.

These Battery-Cases provide protection and a small increase in the Battery life. They also make bulky Battery-Cases that provide double Battery life (and sometime much more protection).
