The sexy metal HTC One M8 is one stunner of a smartphone. So it's easy to see why you'd want to do everything possible to protect your new device. Thankfully, there is a wide variety of case options already available (or on the way). Whether you're looking for rugged protection or a kickstand to prop up your phone, these cases will have you covered. Here are the best cases for the HTC One M8.

Incipio Watson Wallet Folio

With Incipio's Watson Wallet Folio, your HTC One M8 can be the only thing you grab before running out of your house.

HTC Dot View Case

HTC offers a case for the M8 that boasts special features other vendors can't provide. When your One M8 is covered with the Dot View, its face displays a dot-based lock screen that you can see through the case. This way, you can get alerts for missed calls, messages and voicemails along with battery status. You can also answer calls in this mode just by putting the phone to your ear. The $49 Dot View case also offers some protection against minor accidents, and comes in Baton Rouge, Imperial Blue, Orange Popsicle, Warm Black and Atlantis (green).

STM Harbour 2

You'll enjoy the new HTC One's stunning 5-inch 1080p display more if you could prop it up on a table, and STM's Harbour 2 lets you do just that. This case's hinged bottom portion folds out to act as a stand for your phone. A thermo polyurethane layer inside the case cushions your One, while its polycarbonate hard shell comes with a matte finish for fingerprint and scratch resistance. The Harbour 2 is available in Charcoal/Orange, Red/Charcoal and Black/Charcoal for $30.

Otterbox Symmetry Series

Yes, the One M8 is gorgeous, but Otterbox's Symmetry case takes the phone's beauty to the next level by adding a pop of color. This one-piece wraparound bumper lets you protect your One without compromising its sleek profile, and raised edges keep your screen safe from drops. We especially love the Dreamy Pink flavor of the Symmetry case (starts at $39.95), which you can also get in Black, Glacier or Teal Rose.

Speck CandyShell Grip

The One M8's smooth aluminum exterior may make it slippery for some, so wrap your One in Speck's CandyShell Grip.

These bumps also keep your phone from sliding on your dashboard or an inclined surface. A dual-layer design gives your phone added protection while still maintaining its slim shape.
