HTC One M8 Dot View case now available at half price: £17.49

Have you been mulling over getting one of those Dot View cases for your HTC One M8 smartphone? Then this price cut might push you over the edge of the cliff of temptation, as the accessory has seen its price tag halved.

Carphone Warehouse is now selling the Dot View case at £17.49 (with it being reduced from £34.99), and this offer runs from today until next Friday (27 June), so you have one week to make your move.

The case is being offered in four colours by Carphone Warehouse – blue, grey, orange and purple – and as well as providing protection for your precious flagship handset, it also has a dot pattern perforated on the front cover, which can be lit up to display information without opening the case. You can see notifications with a double-tap on the cover, swipe down for voice commands, and view time and weather details, all without opening the case.

It's a nifty little invention with a smart retro feel, and the Dot View case is also very light so it doesn't weigh down your svelte new smartphone too much.

We really liked this accessory, and in our review concluded that it "combines protection and functional 8-bit charm into one of the cleverest cases around". Our main moan was the price being rather expensive at £35, but Carphone Warehouse has handily sorted that bugbear with this offer.
