Entry Description

The HTC Ice View is a stylish protective flip case for the
HTC 10, accentuating the design of HTC’s flagship phone
while also adding novel methods of interacting with
everyday information.

The thin frosted front repels nicks and scratches when
the phone is in a pocket or bag, and is translucent
enough to reveal the screen. When the cover is closed, an
array of information—notifications, battery status, music
controls, alarms, incoming phone calls, weather and
more—are rendered in a clear, easily visible way unique
to Ice View. The owner can glance at the cover without
the sometimes socially distracting motions of retrieving
and unlocking the phone.

The Ice View is also interactive and touch-sensitive,
allowing the owner to immediately respond to
notifications and calls, control music playback and even
quick-launch the camera and capture a snapshot. The
borderless cover becomes an extension of the screen
itself.
