The Ice View case, from HTC, enables you to view your notifications and interact with the HTC 10 when in the case and the cover is closed. Other manufacturers might offer 'windowed' cases to peek at your notifications, the Ice View does more. A double tap brings up a clock and the date along with notifications. Swipe up and call back the most recent caller without even opening the case. People like to capture a quick picture at any time, but having to open the case, launch the camera and then take the picture can mean that by the time we are ready to take the shot, the moment has passed. On the HTC 10 and with the Ice View case things should be a little easier. The translucent design lets you use the camera app with the case closed. If you want the perfect shot then this is not ideal, but for the quick spur of the moment then it is ideal. Just take one finger and swipe down on the HTC 10's screen twice to launch the camera. Cut-outs for the main ports and controls such as the headphone jack exist, and protection is provided on the most vulnerable parts of the phone such as the corners. The HTC logo can be found in the bottom left corner and it is this that serves as a magnetic trigger to turn the sceen on and off when the case is opened and closed.
