Guys, I am not one for a case on my phone, I've now the 8X from a Radar, and a case just takes so much away. I'm worried that the glass on the 8c extends past the poly though. I'm only in an 8X now cause I dropped my tank of a Radar and it just happened to fall flat face down on an asphalt pebble. Spider-webbed. T-Mo hooked me up tho. Does this piece give the glass that little bit of protection??

IMO, this is the only case that preserves the overall design aesthetic (minus the soft touch coating) of the phone whilst providing all-round protection...the glass is another issue.
The dirty-ing soft touch coating was the reason I got the case in the first place.

I was one the first members here to have bought this case and I already posted on some topics that this case is one of the best I've seen/owned.
As morpheus said, it's the only one so far that preserves the looks of the phone while providing the much needed protection to lay the phone on any surface with worrying about scratches on the back. It doesn't protect the screen because it fits the phone borders so nicely that the screen is still prominent a few millimeters with it. For me, the important thing was to protect the back of the phone as I always take it out of my pocket and put it on every surface within reach.
Great buy. I will look forward for HTC to release it on other colors.

I got this one : Case-Mate Windows Phone 8x Tough Cases (Case-Mate HTC8X-TUF), HTC 8x Cases | Covers | Accessories | Case-Mate
Of course, if your phone is blue, it covers it almost completly. But I really like the fact that the shell is solid and I like the hold I have now, less scared to drop it. :)

I'm running out of patience waiting for HTC to release other colors for the Doubleshot Hard Shell. I have it blue but I want a black to match my phone and perhaps a grey or limelight one :D

This picture I hope, will give you an idea of the "bumpy" border to protect the screen :
The back, to let you see the texture that helps for the grip :
The bottom (the picture is so clear, you can see the dust... ;)
And the top.
As you will notice, my phone is blue but I don't mind, the case is so solid and it does not
add to the size or the weight that much. Also, it does not show that it's a two-piece case. :D
Hope it helps. :)

Thanks for the pics. I like to have one tough case to put on when going out to outdoors or work in dusty/dirty places (I make structured wiring, mostly data and voice, from time to time). This makes a good choice for a tough case to have just in case it's needed.
