It's great.... half the time
I recently received a replacement m8 for the one I had previously for another reason that's for another day, anyways, my retailer was kind enough to give me brand new dot view to replace the one I had before (that was perfect, but I accepted because they were nice enough to offer) and they gave me the one I currently have. It fits loosely on the phone, the duo camera cut out doesn't line up with the camera quite exactly and there isn't a cut out for the LEDs on the back where in contrast, the one that I had previously fit like a glove and had all the cut outs AND they were in their respective places. So far, I've had a 50% success rate with HTC. My first M8 had a defect where it wouldn't be able to make calls so I had it replaced, now the one that I have currently works like a charm while the dot view case I had previously was perfect in every way and the one I have now doesn't stand anywhere near the one I had before. I URGE who ever reads this to make sure to tell one of the higher ups to tighten quality co
dot view disapointment
I changed from the HTC one mini up to the m8 due to needing the bigger screen for some of the app software I use for my job and to protect my investment the case looked ideal and fun, however, I am now reverting back to the mini.
I have not dropped this phone but within 2 months I have a fine crack in the screen from top to bottom, an issue covered under warranty in America but not here in the UK, I would have thought the stiffness of this cover would stop any flexing and avoid this.
The matrix leaves a grid on the screen which needs cleaning off regularly and is also a haven for dirt.
Finally, it does not protect the camera lens on the back and so that will get easily wrecked...
So what's the answer, after all these are problems I never had in the 4years of using BlackBerry?
1 put in a waterproof sailing pouch, not really viable...
2. Don't use it, hmmm.
3. Stick it in a thick pair of socks, double

out of this world
The Dot view is an amazing bit of technology for my HTC one M8 it adds more class and brings my phone to life even more and I love to show my friends and family which they all go WOW that's AWESOME.
It shows that HTC has worked on ever single bit of detail of the phone and not left any bit out.
I recommend it highly, it protects my screen and speakers very well so it does the job for me.

Pretty Cool Case
I have only had this case for a few weeks but so far so good. I have the Windows version of the HTC M8 and there was an offer for a free XBOX version of the case. I am typically not a case guy at all and have found them pretty useless for my other phones. I had an HTC 8X prior to this for 4 years and never a scratch or a problem and I never used a case.
The HTC M8 is a beautiful phone but it is slick and a case is needed because I keep thinking it is going to slip out of my hands and this case feels great and it does not slip. It is also very cool. People are always asking about it and has become a good ice breaker and it also allows me to introduce people to Windows phones.
I hate the flap/cover. You have to lift it open to text and there is no place for your left hand to go. It has become awkward to text/type unless I turn to landscape and then the flap keeps dropping down on top of my fingers. I worry about bending it back around the phone as it seems that would cause the cover to not sit flu

Best Case ever had
Okay.... so I am seeing lots of M8 Reviews for Dot View. But I have something different to share to.
HTC Dot View using it on my HTC Desire 820... First of all I am from India, and the city I am living neither any big retailer nor HTC official store owners have HTC Dot View Case...
So I am little disappointed.. After all my hard efforts I finally found it from one Local HTC Retailer.. at a very cheap price... Just $2. (Rs. 1000)
About the Product..
The first thing that would pop out from your mouth is "WOW"
HTC Dot View case on my HTC Desire 820 looks amazingly awesome when notifications pops up, Calls come in, Messages coming in, emails, alarms, weather, music, even from the latest update from HTC, We can also see the Third party applications like Whatsapp, Facebook etc.
The quality of the plastic is good... I can't say best as it should have been better...
Some of the Cons:
The major cons would be the location for Front Camera used in HTC Desire 820.. It's not exactly the same as HTC One M8 where we can se
Features do not work for HTC510
Dot view options do not work for my HTC Desire 510. Will not give the options to answer a call or check a message. Will not wake upon tapping the screen. Will not do any motion activated features. Only will display when a message was left with an icon as well for other features. No motion features defeat s the purpose.

I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this item. I got it on Amazon over Cyber Week on sale. The front flap does not sit flush again the screen unless I press it down, otherwise it gapes open about a quarter of an inch. This causes the Dot View time and weather to display improperly. Half of the time, the time and weather does not display, it just shows the home screen. The front flap does not fold all the way around the phone, which is awkward for calls. I tried to answer a call by swiping upwards while the front cover was on, and it would not respond.
This is a very, very cool idea, and incredibly badly executed. I am incredibly disappointed.
phone falls out
I have a HTC m8 which I'm very happy with. Initially I was impressed with the dot view case...what a great idea and it looks cool when a call lights up through the cover. However I soon realised I would need to get a new cover if I want my phone to last. The biggest problem is the phone tends to slip or even sometimes it flies out of the cover whenyou handle it, and all of the times my phone has dropped has been because of this problem. The other annoying thing is that the rubber dot screen cover leaves a dot matrix on the screen that needs cleaning.
