Featured Review: Incipio’s Clear Octane case for the HTC One M9

April 2, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Now that our HTC One M9 review is out of the way, we can now focus on the more important things like the many cases that are available for the HTC One M9. This Octane case from Incipio actually isn’t quite available just yet. But it will be very soon. Incipio will be selling it for $24.99, and it’ll be available in green, blue, pink and black. Obviously, we have the green one here, which has really grown on me. I’m not a huge fan of green, but I’m really digging how it looks on the One M9.

The Octane case from Incipio absorbs impact, and is precision engineered with a rigid Plextonium polycarbonate back shell, along with a shock absorbent TPU textured bumper. It also has a nice smooth back, which helps to keep it in your hand and off the ground. You know the feeling you get with some cases where it just feels right? That’s what the Octane feels like in your hand with the One M9. I’ve been using it on the One M9 ever since I finished the review on Monday, so a little less than a week. And it looks and feels amazing.

On the back of the Octane case you’ll notice there’s a cut out for the camera and dual-LED flash. As well as another one towards the top for the microphone hole. On the bottom there are cut outs for the micro USB port as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack. Up top, there’s also a cut out for the IR Blaster, so you can still use your HTC One M9 as a remote control for your TV. I did test it out, and it does still work flawlessly. There isn’t a cut out for the power and volume rocker on the right side, but it is textured so you can feel for them and still press them when needed.

Incipio has a whole line of other cases coming out for the HTC One M9, including the Dual Pro, Dual Pro Shine, NGP, Feather and Corbin. Which we will review as soon as we get our hands on them. So make sure you stay tuned. You can buy the Incipio Octane case right now from Incipio’s site. It’s not yet on Amazon, but should be soon.
