The case is tough and the leather has a nice slightly poofy feel to it. The plastic frame around the edge is very thick, so you may be reassured that if you dropped your Kindle, the case isn't going to allow much past it, short of a hammer! The inside of the screen lid is slightly velvety, so this should help to protect the screen from any scratching.
It is indeed a very well constructed cover and should protect your precious Kindle Fire HD for many years ... it's a worthwhile insurance against those moments that inevitably happen ... how many times have you dropped a phone ... make sure you have one of these before you drop your Kindle!
(I've reviewed the latter in comparison with the former previously).
Both are fine, but when I got the chance to try the Amazon cover as well, I
couldn't resist. And I'm glad I didn't, for I think it's the best cover of the
three. It looks pretty good (this one is ink blue, which makes a nice change
from all my black cases), it's slightly lighter than the others, and it
provides just enough access to all the sockets even when the cover is closed.
Rather than being accessed through holes, the power and volume buttons are
duplicated on the case edge, in simple way that looks like it shouldn't work,
It uses a magnetic clasp rather than an elastic band to keep the lid closed;
this does mean that there's nothing to hold the lid in place when it's folded
round, but (apart from the weight of the Fire itself) it's not uncomfortable to
hold in the hand. There's a rubber tab on the lid that provides good grip
when it's used as a stand, though I have had it "lose its footing" and slide
flat once or twice on smooth table-tops.
All in all, I think this case is very good. Now that I've used it a while, the
main thing I think I wish it could do would be to support the Fire as a stand
in portrait mode as well as landscape; but that's true of my previous cases
I have owned many covers for many devices over the years. Most have been functional and some have frayed and fallen apart, but they are rarely anything other than perfunctory. However, this cover for the Kindle Fire is so good that I feel moved to review it six months after purchase.
It feels like a tough plastic shell, yet has a pleasing leathery texture on the outside and a felty-baize on the inner lid to keep the screen in top nick. The Kindle snaps in perfectly -- it doesn't have to be forcibly pushed in, and there is no unwanted space. The holes are perfectly placed for the headphones and power sockets, the volume and power buttons, which is something of a novelty after using looser leather covers on devices. There are also well-placed vents to ensure the speakers continue to get maximum volume. The Kindle awakens from sleep the moment you flip open the lid, and the case is very robust when you perch it as a stand. It feels solid, weighty and compact.
The only criticism I would have had about the case is the price, but I see Amazon has reduced it to a more reasonable price tag (nineteen quid) at the time of writing.
It's nice to come across an item that is perfectly designed for its purpose.
