HTC One (M8) Dot View Cover Review

When HTC introduced its brand new HTC One (M8) smartphone, it also debuted a brand new, and very unique, accessory for the device. It's called the Dot View cover, and it basically allows you to see alerts, answer incoming calls, view the time and weather, and more, all without ever opening the cover or turning on your phone. The device will soon be available in several colors for $49.99, but we had a gray unit that we tested with our HTC One (M8), and wanted to bring you a quick review.

We aren't usually fans of flip-view style cases, no matter who it's from, mainly because the flap always seems to get in the way of what we're trying to do.Usually, we just want to dive right in and look at the phone and start interacting. The dot view is a bit different, though, in that it allows us to interact a bit without having to open it at all (competitors, like Samsung and LG, have similar interactive cases but they use a window instead). Check it out and let us know what you think.
