The nexus 10 fits so snugly in this case that in use it is barely noticeable! All ports and buttons are still accessible and the magnetic sleep/wake function is very useful. The stand function is very basic, a flap that the front of the case slips into, so provides a nice angle for reading/typing without introducing any cumbersome addons.
The material is light yet sturdy so the tablet seems very well protected, and the purple colour gives a personal touch without seeming trashy - it's very stylish!

All in all, excellent value for money and feels like it will last a long while.

Being initially sceptical as to whether this cover was going to be a generic 10" tablet cover, I can confirm that this cover is definitely custom made for the Nexus 10, given that it is a very good snug fit and none of the functional parts of the tablet are obscured by it. The tablet is held in by a flap which is fastened by velcro around the bottom edge (in landscape) and round the back of the tablet inside the case, holding it in very securely.

The headphone, micro USB and micro HDMI ports are perfectly accessible whether the cover is opened or closed, as are the power and volume buttons; the dock contacts at the bottom landscape edge are accessible when the cover is opened or folded back on itself. The bevel is cut away for the speaker grilles, the front facing camera and light sensor and the notification light (although you obviously won't see this light when the cover is closed), and there is a 'speech bubble' shaped hole in the back of the cover for the rear-facing camera, flash and microphone. There is a clearance of approximately 5mm around the edge of the screen to the bevel of the case and swiping is subsequently comfortable from the top edge of the screen (in any orientation) for notifications and system settings. There is a pen loop which is located on the top edge of the landscape position about a fifth in from the left hand side, which equates to it being on the right edge and towards the top when holding the cover in the closed position in portrait orientation like a folder. The loop is perfectly adequate for a pencil or Bic-style pen, but a wider soft-grip gel pen may be problematic to fit.

The supplied stylus/pen is quite slim and fits the loop perfectly, although the pocket clip on the pen is rather tight and will snag on the elastic of the loop, but this is not a problem as slipping the pen into the loop up to the clip is pretty much in a central position for the stylus and is well balanced as a result. The stylus is pleasant to use and has a good firm springiness to the tip and good glide against the screen's surface. It is also narrower than the finger (or at least mine) and helps to provide a little more accuracy. The pen at the other end of the stylus is a twist-to-open ballpoint nib in black ink. It writes reasonably well and will suffice perfectly for the odd jotted note (I personally much prefer gel pens for writing).

The entire inside of the cover is finished in a mid-grey brushed cotton material which has a suede-like look and feel, and gives confidence that the screen will not pick up any marks as a result of contact with the inside of the cover. Feeling along the edge with a firm grip reveals four magnets down the edge inside the cover which works to switch the tablet's screen on and off as the cover is opened and closed respectively. There is a certain amount of spine given to the cover makes the cover fit squarely over the screen when closed but also means that folding the cover back on itself and holding the edges together creates a gap at the reversed spine, although this will no doubt reduce as the material softens with use. To alleviate this the cover can be held to either side by about 1.5cm to flatten the spine if you wanted the tablet flat on the table in this folded-back position, otherwise it gives the tablet a very slight lean in this position.

The cover gives a good grip to the tablet in use and would not look at all out of place in a conference room or coffee bar. A flap in the back allows the cover to be tucked in and stand the tablet at two different angles depending on which way round you place it. The upright position is very stable and well balanced. The 'desktop' angle can cause the cover to slip out of the flap when a certain amount of pressure is applied towards the top edge of the tablet, causing is to flatten onto the table, but otherwise holds steady if left undisturbed.

Unfortunately, a screen protector was not supplied, but a very courteous note explained the reason for this as being that they were found not to be a good fit, and a USB OTG cable was supplied as a substitute item. This was a pleasant and useful surprise.

Overall I have to say that this item feels like absolutely brilliant value for money and I am delighted with this purchase. Even if it proves to last only six months or so, it won't have been a waste of money. I recommend it.

Fits the tablet perfectly, gives it ample protection, the magnetic on/off works like a dream.

One very minor criticism: if you put a stylus in the holder, it gets in the way of the on/off and volume switches a bit, but I only really notice this because I don't use a stylus myself (so don't take it out when I'm using the tablet), but I share the tab with my girlfriend who likes the stylus.

I really hope this video is helpful. I haven't done one before but hopefully I've managed to make it informative.

In summary, this is a good product with everything you would expect from a case i.e. cut-outs, a magnetic closure, a stand and its a slim stylish case that looks good etc. However, for me the bonus was the auto-shut off function in the case. I simply have to close the top flap of the case and my tablet will go to sleep mode.

The G-Hub PropUp case is the perfect fit for my new Nexus 7 and the free screen protectors are a great bonus. So far I have not tried out the integrated stand as I I'm more inclined to hold it in my hands. The magnetic sleep sensors work a treat and ensure that the battery does not run down while your not using it. And of course it is a vibrant red which is one of my favourite colours. I can highly recommend it for a Nexus 7.

The item arrived on time, was of excellent quality and was fully as described. One of the reviewers complained that the case was too small. My Nexus 10 fitted snugly into the tablet case I received, but first the grey slab of foam plastic packing must of course be removed. Another reviewer complained that the camera and charging sockets were covered. They are not. The tablet must have been put in the case the wrong way round, turn it through 180 degrees! Yet another reviewer complained that to use the sloping typing position, the tablet had to be taken out of the case and turned around. Again, this is not correct. If the automatic screen rotation is enabled then the keyboard rotates itself when the tablet is held vertically for a few moments. I am delighted with my case.

I wanted something non-bulky, protective and kinda pretty/stylish.
I got it in the berry/purple colour and i love it. all the openings for ports buttons are in the right place. will definitely purchase again.

on another note. threw away the pen included, one sides ink and one side is soft for tablet use, but it seemed scratchy and low quality compared to the case, so i used my own table pen, which fits in the holder perfectly. (not that a pen is really needed)

Google Nexus 10 Tablet Case - G-HUB PropUp RED Stand Case Cover (with integrated stand function and magnetic sleep sensors) for Google / Samsung Nexus 10 with BONUS: G-HUB ProPen Styus As pensioners having just bought our first tablet and really enjoying it, a protective case seemed a good idea. At £9.99 this was an excellent buy and the red colour is very smart and helps us to locate where we have put the tablet down. The leather-like material is well finished with a soft backing and the different folding arrangements give versatility in use. Functionality of the tablet is not impaired by the case since there are cut-outs to allow access to the connections, and ensure that the cameras, flash, mike and speakers are not obscured. Our Nexus 10 fitted snugly into the case without problems and I have since removed and replaced it once. The package included a protective screen cover which needed to be applied the right way round and was tricky to place accurately and remove the air pockets. Some instructions would have helped. A combined screen stylus/ ball-point pen is also included. All in all, hard to fault and great value.

This is a great case, holds the nexus 10 snugly, and doesn't slacken off like other cases I've seen have. The pen/stylus that comes with it is great, much better than the little dinky ones that you can buy with the rubber ends. Feels and looks a bit like you're carrying a slim a5 filofax around. Would recommend anyone to buy this case. Haven't dropped my nexus 10 yet and don't plan to, so can't comment on it's protective capability, sorry.

Case came quickly. Fits the Nexus 10 very well and the magnetic catch works as on and off. Very pleased with the buy so far. I have not had it long enough to comment on durability but it feels well made. All in all a no problem transaction.
