    I'm hoping trident is going to announce some of their cases soon. I have ALWAYS bought my rugged cases from them. As good as otter box or better. Their kraken cases is awesome

    Which brand screen protectors you guys like/use?

    Screen protectors,just like phone cases,run the gamut.
    There's the ZAGG brand,for heavy-duty protection:

    HTC One Screen Protector | invisibleSHIELD by ZAGG

    Great protection,but,has an orange-peel look/feel to it (had one myself on another phone).

    And SPIGEN:

    HTC One Screen Protector GLAS.t SLIM Premium Tempered Glass - ONE - HTC - Cell Phones | SPIGEN SGP

    http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/htc/htc-one/htc-one-screen-protector-steinheil.html

    And everything in-between,as there are dozens,if not hundreds of different makes of screen protectors available.With all the choices available,I seriously doubt if you're going to get a consensus recommendation from the members here.


    It all boils down to how much $ you want to spend & if you're wanting maximum protection,or,a screen protector that is "barely there".
    Fortunately,you don't have to spend a whole lot of money to figure out which is best suited for your needs.

    I myself have been going sans screen protector for 7+ months now on my phone & have yet to experience a single flaw in the appearance.However,I think I may change my tune w/the ONE & get the tempered glass protector from SPIGEN.

    My soon to be wifey showed me a little dangle charm thing that she said she was going to put on her One. She was apparently really excited about it too :thinking::thinking:

    That pink is just so adorable!!!!! Hah just kidding

    But seriously, I'm not sure why everyone is going bonkers over flip covers. I respect that people like them, but I just feel like they make more sense on a larger screen ie galaxy note. The phones that are shaped more like phones and not tablets just look odd. Just me I suppose.

    With the way my phone history goes, I need to somehow figure out how to get it to defy gravity. A flip case would help me out a ton.

    If the case had wings, I would agree with you! But most of the flip covers offer so little protection. I think Im just jaded by my own galaxy note with flip cover. It's nice but is only marginally better than the normal back cover. I still trust an otterbox/trident rugged case over anything. Hell even basic tpu cases feel better, they bounce when hitting the ground.

    Than again it just might be the Samsung flip covers that scare me.

    Speck Candyshell available for pre-order in the UK

    Finally, I love these cases. Slim but dual layer silicone/hard shall and actually afford a lot more protection than might be first thought (dropped Candyshelled iPhone 5 on to concrete and only a slight scuff to case, phone perfect).

    I'm considering trying this out for the HTC one. The phone is just too good looking to cover with a case.

    I've never tried full body by zagg before. I see on their site they are set to ship on the 27th. Is anyone else considering this route? Any impressions on them from people who have purchased them for past devices?

    I had a Zagg on my Pre back then, and had the "orange peel effect" at the edges, but I've heard they have improved. I just bought a 2 pack of Steinheil screen protectors from Amazon, but didn't see any full body ones of same brand.

    Got this today, it is a bit awkward when taking a call but as someone who frequently drops his phone it is worth the compromise :D

    Does that just go around the edges? Maybe you can show a couple angles?

    I went ahead and ordered the zagg full body. I will probably just use the back part of it. These screens are damn near impossible to scratch these days. Ill post once I get it.

    I hate cases too. Especially for this phone. Who would want to hide that beautiful design? I see lots of thin clear cases but I'm going with the zagg full body. I imagine that that aluminum will start to wear and scratch over time of putting it down and picking it up off of different surfaces

    If you mean the clips that hold the phone then yeah they just go around the edges but hold it quite securely.

    This is it without anything in.

    Saw a review of that case. Looks and feels great but fails for one simple reason. The flap does not stay closed as there are no magnets to hold it down. HTC WTF.

    Mine stays closed fine when i use it, ok, it didn't on the first day of use, but after a little use it stays closed fine.

    Or do you actually mean being held closed as opposed to just staying closed when laying flat?
