Good looking, child proof and great value
on 26 July 2013
I recently purchased two 7inch Galaxy Tab2s to keep the kids entertained during holiday-related journeys. To make them a bit more child and squabble proof, I needed similar designs and different colours. I chose this product not only because it allows the tablet to stand in a variety of positions, but it comes with a stylus and screen guard film as well. Oh, and it was at a great price as well.
The stylus is effective although the tip was worked loose during a particularly rough first play of Temple Run. Thank God I had put the screen protector on, which took a sacrificial scratch in the process. (The kids don't use the stylus so much now as a result). The screen protector fits well, although one of the adhesive tabs has left an unsightly mark on the film. Fortunately, the area affected is covered by the case, so my OCD is kept at bay! The case itself fits well and allows easy access to the power and volume buttons, as well as the USB port at the bottom of the tablet. Inserting a microSD card is possible, but removal is a bit fiddly whilst the tablet is still in the case. The case allows the tablet to be stood in both portrait and landscape orientations. The magnetic tabs on the cover ensure it stays closed, although I have not noticed any automatic sleep/wake linked to the magnets or the closing/opening of the cover. But as that wasn't a feature I was desperate for, it doesn't really matter. The case has a good looking leather effect on external surfaces and a fabric/suede effect on the inner front cover. The dye has been applied consistently throughout. I bought a blue and a purple case - both are of the same standard.
For those thinking how the tablet is secured in the case, there's a sort of pocket that the tablet fits into, with gaps for accessing the ports and buttons and a flap on the inside spine side that folds around and under the long left edge of the tablet to keep it secure. I have not had any issues with the tablets working loose.
All in all a good value, child proof product. Happy to recommend.
