Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HTC Dot Flip Cover Case for HTC One (M8) - Grey (Accessory)
You are probably reading this as you own a HTC One M8 - we all know what a stunning phone it is and we all want to protect it and show it off/use to it's fully advantage.
On paper the dot view case is an excellent idea, but in reality it does lacks serious functionality.
What I like: It fits the M8 beautifully and compliments the phones design. It adds very little bulk and I like the rubberised front panel. The themes are lovely and when lit up, looks very attractive. Also, the price - on Amazon it is £20 less than what you would pay on the high street.
What I don't like: Its very limited in it's use at the moment, no third party support i.e. no notifications for Whatsapp, FB, Twitter, Gmail etc and the front of the case pretty much covers up the LED notification, so basically most of the time you do not know if you have received notifications for these apps if your phone is on silent or vibrate. The front panel sometimes rests snuggly on the screen and other times it just hovers above it (I don't know why this happens).
Samsung and LG have it nailed with their official cases (i.e. with view windows/panels) but HTC have tried something a little different which should be great, but it fails to impress. OK, the software for the case may be in it's infancy but you would expect it to be fully functional when you first use it with your phone
