In my quest to continue protecting my device from bumps, scrapes, scratches and bruises — all without breaking the bank — my journey led me to eBay’s Chinese market place. It’s there I found one of the world’s thinnest smartphone cases around. Measuring at only .5mm thick, this generic case adds minimal bulk to your device (read: practically none at all), at the cost of providing a bare minimum amount of protection as well.
Definitely not for the Otterbox crowd, this case probably wont save your display from shattering should you drop your phone down a flight of stairs, but rest assured the covered portions will look as good as they day you bought it. The case covers 3 quarters of your device’s edges, while leaving the bottom exposed and it’s matte finish blends in perfectly with the HTC One’s design.
The best part about the case? At $1 shipped (looks like I may have been overcharged at $3), there’s absolutely no reason not to buy this case. You can find a link to the case in 6 different colors — white (pictured), yellow, blue, black, grey, and pink — via the eBay link just after the video. And yes, there’s a Samsung Galaxy S4 version too. Cheers.
