And here we have the QMadix S Series Cover for the HTC One M8. This is a hard plastic shell case that definitely beefs up how much abuse your M8 will be able to tolerate — from the back at least. It also adds a few millimeters of thickness to the phone, but we’d argue that’s excusable given that it makes the phone easier to hold overall. You can thank the front RIM for that. It gives you a little extra grip, provides a little contrast in design, and also recesses the display a little bit, so you can place the phone face-down without worrying about scratching anything.

The back of the case is a smooth, semi-gloss finish. The black version we have tends to show off the oil from fingers pretty well, so you’ll be wanting to wipe this guy off. (Or not. Your call.) The camera lenses also will be recessed a bit, so they’ll be a little protected as well.
