A Mini-Guide to 8X Cases
This is the most popular style of HTC 8X case. The 8X holster (sometimes called a clip case) is typically a formed piece of plastic that grips the 8X at its four corners, it has a belt clip and latch with which to release the 8X. In most cases the 8X is reversible within the case meaning you can store your 8X either screen in (and protected) or screen out (so you can use it 'in-case' as it were). If the screen is 'in' then it cannot be used whilst in-situ. Removal is usually a simple matter of depressing the clip to release the phone.
We think it's popular for it's simplicity, ease of use and generally low bulk and weight over head.
Hard 8X Cases
These offer good protection for your HTC 8X but can be more bulky than skin cases. Hard cases come in a variety of materials including leather, metal and plastic. Most do not provide protection for the HTC 8X screen but do come with belt loop or clips some of which are removeable. Thus you can use the HTC 8X in-situ.
8X Skin Cases
Usually made of silicone the 8X Skin Cases are popular because they provide additional grip and reasonable protection for reduced bulkiness and typically lower cost than hard cases. A minor caveat is that it makes it harder to retrieve the 8X from a pocket or purse because the silicone sticks to many surfaces. The silicone material can become discoloured in time and only high quality skin cases fit perfectly.
Recently, improved manufacturing and better materials have led to some very slim skin case designs that add very little bulk to the HTC 8X.
Like the hard case above, the skin case can remain in place whilst operating the 8X but unlike the hard case most do not have belt loops or clips.
8X Pouches come in three flavours: side pouches, top pouches and pocket pouches. They typically cover the entire HTC 8X including the screen and are usually made of leather, plastic or silicon. Therefore 8X pouches offer the most complete protection available. As their name suggests they keep the HTC 8X safe in a variety of orientations. In nearly all cases the 8X must be removed from the pouch before use.
Pouches usually come with belt loops or clips. This coupled with more sturdy or rugged construction add to the total bulk.
A 8X body skin is the next generation of skin case and takes the form of a formed film that comes in several pieces that you apply to the designated areas of your HTC 8X. Most have a screen protection component. All can remain on whilst the HTC 8X is being used. The offer scratch resistance and enhanced grip but do little for physical protection. They are the least bulky of all HTC 8X cases.
Flip-Lid 8X Cases
Flip-lid cases are the hinged syblings of hard and pouch cases that enable you to use the HTC 8X whilst in the case by flipping the protective screen flap either up like a Star Trek communicator or across like a book. They are usually bulkier and more expensive than their parents but offer convienience in exchange.
