    Excellent case with two small issues…, 25 Oct. 2014

    I bought this in black for the iPad Air for £8.99. I must say having now received this and tried it out, I would happily pay around £20 for this case. Although I do feel that it is a bit of shame to use a case, I think one as discreet as this is a reasonable compromise.

    On the whole the product has a quality feel to it and all cut outs line up with the buttons and ports of the iPad as they should. Much like the official Smart Cover , the cover folds into various configurations allow you to create a stand or elevate the iPad when typing. Each configuration is held in place by the built in magnets that also work to automatically lock and turn off the screen when the cover is closed. These magnets are sufficiently strong and I would feel confident in their ability to support the weight of the device when standing upright as shown in the product pictures. I have had cases before for other tablets that don’t feel half as sturdy as this does but have cost nearly three times the price – so this receives a pretty high rating from me based on the cost.

    The rear cover is a hard plastic shell which, although transparent, is like a lightly smoked glass. This allows you to see the back of the iPad through it whilst providing protection from scratches and slight knocks. Although this is a relatively slim fitting case which doesn’t add a great deal of thickness to the iPad, the extra weight (slight as it may be) is noticeable. I think that this is pretty much inevitable for a case that covers both front and back considering the svelte nature of the iPad itself and I do not think that I would mark the case down because of this. The good thing about this case is that the front of the iPad itself is not covered by any of the rear casing. This makes a lot of difference to the perceived screen size in use. I find cases that cover a tablets screen borders are distracting and although they do add an extra bit of protection, the trade off is a cramped feeling to the device’s screen. Because this case does not intrude on areas around the screen, the simplicity of the iPad’s design and glorious screen are not compromised.

    There are a couple of things that I feel could be improved upon and are the reason for rating this 4/5. The first is the fact that the front cover has a slight sharpness to it’s edges which can feel a little scratchy on your hands. I find that when this is folded back and the iPad is in landscape mode on a flat service, it does become slightly annoying when typing. This is only a small gripe and might be specific to my case in particular.

    The second issue is the plastic coverings on the volume buttons. I find that these make the volume buttons a lot harder to press and to locate by touch in the dark. For me personally, I would have preferred a cut out section here, much like the one around the mute/rotation lock switch. I think both of these issues are something you are going to eventually get used to, but it is a shame that these two niggles bring down an otherwise excellent case.

    Overall, I would recommend this product and would buy one again if I ever needed too.

    Very disappointed. Tried to persevere but the holes are not quite right so the volume button kept remaining pressed down. Incredibly annoying. Too late to return so sitting in a drawer wasting space

    I’m really dubious about spending so much on something that has little reviews, however since this was reduced I thought I’d take the plunge.

    Firstly, I love the colour. I ordered mint green for my iPad and it looks perfect. The had case back still allows you to see the apple logo and any engraving if you elected for it, yet it still gives a beautiful tint to your iPad.

    The case is well made, my iPad Air fits perfectly inside this, and the cover works just as good as my official apple Smart Cover, the magnets are strong and sturdy and the case does the same as the Smart Cover in regards to the Awake/Sleep function.

    All ports are easily accessible and buttons are easy to press.

    I would recommend this case to anyone, it’s so good, I want to buy some more. Probably one of each cover.

    The case lived up to my expectations and did exactly what it says on the tin. :)
