The new HTC One M9 is backed by HTC’s “UH OH” protection plan, which will offer you free replacements or repairs. But despite that great guarantee, it’s still a smart idea to regularly use your new One M9 with a protective case. The right protective case can save you the hassle of waiting to get a replacement phone. Plus, there are some pretty cool cases out there that let you express your personality.
