The leather is textured and has been applied as a surface covering to both the front section of the cover and the plastic tray at the rear. The leather doesn't have the lovely, soft tactile sensation that went with Amazon's Kindle Keyboard covers but doesn't seem to mark as easily as the Amazon leather covers for the baby Kindle/Kindle Touch models (a fingernail is enough to leave a permanent scrape on those). The purple colourway I ordered is disappointing - much darker than product photos suggest.
The cover bends back easily enough for one handed reading, but the 'spine' section on the latest version of the Amazon brand cover does seem to have been reinforced, so that it doesn't flop awkwardly backwards if you prefer to hold the cover two-handed. The microfibre lining of the interior is very shallow-piled and resembles black denim.
The biggest problem I had with the last generation of Amazon cases - the lack of closing mechanism - has been addressed here, courtesy of a lightweight magnet. This works simply, engaging when you shut the cover, and requires no extra fiddling.
The cover isn't cheap, but is comparable in price to cases currently offered by Verso and Marware.Read more ›
I have just upgraded from a kindle keybord to the 2015 kindle paperwhite, I will be reviewing that in due course. After buying that the next purchase had to be the leather cover.
This thing is smart, very nice. First of all the build quality is excellent, the main body of the cover is a plastic tray, this is qute thick and has a rubberized feel to it. The tray has a lip all the way round (apart from a notch to allow access to the on/off switch and the USB/charging connector. To insert your kindle you pop it in and the lip clamps tight all round the kindle. It is held very securely and looks very neat.
The front cover is a simple flap with a leather cover, the leather is textured and the inner surface of the cover is a nice looking grey which almost looks and feels like faded denim. The word 'kindle' is subtly printed here. The rear of the plastic tray also has a leather panel, same colour and texture as the front flap.
To open the cover simply lift it, there is a magnetic catch that also functions as a wake up switch for the kindle. If your kindle in sleep mode (that is, displaying those slightly annoying ads, it will activate the backlight). If your kindle is totally switched off the catch switches the machine straight on, past the sleep screen.
I really, really like this cover, it is perfectly form fitting and really makes the kindle much easier to hold, it adds no significant weight or bulk to the paperwhite and adds to the 'booklike' experience of using the paper white.
This is really a no-brainer, essential purchase for anyone who has invested in a kindle paperwhite.
