Took delivery of this case today:
Black Aluminum Metal Sliding Bumper Slider Frame Case for HTC One M7 801E SB K | eBay
Which is essentially a much less-expensive alternative to this:
DRACO ONE - Aluminum bumper for New HTC One
I already reviewed the DRACO ONE,so,I'll focus on the former & its features.
1) No tools/loose parts to assemble vs the DRACO ONE,A DEFINITE PLUS!
2) Aluminum construction adds negligible weight to the phone.
3) More than ample edge protection,especially when placing the phone face-down on a surface.
4) Cut-outs for all ports/buttons,even the SIM CARD Door,are perfectly aligned.However,this is one area where I prefer the DRACO ONE,as it has buttons for the POWER/I-R BLASTER & VOLUME,instead of cut-outs.
This is in no way a knock on the functionality/quality of the case,just a personal preference/purely subjective,as I favor the buttons vs. cutouts.
If you're wanting an aluminum bumper case at a fair price,this is definitely worth consideration,not to mention looking very similar to the DRACO ONE,but,at about 1/6TH the price,which I imagine,was the main intention of this (nameless) manufacturer/case.
