Pros.
Nice case, the suede has a nice feel to it.
Fits my mini 2 perfectly
All buttons/ports are accessible within the case

Cons.
Main problem is - its difficult to get it to stand when you stick it back (as in the product pic). I find it only works if its on a hard surface, which is perfectly level (like a table).
If you try and stand it on your lap or a sofa, I find it just slides down.

My iPad doesn't seem to recognise it as a smart case, though its no big deal for me as I wouldn't real use the autosleep

Was purchased for use with my iPad Mini and after looking at more expensive options in local retailers I found this to be a better product as it offered protection on the corners and was small and thin enough to be very portable why pay £30-£40 for a bigger bulkier product when you can pick up this at a fraction of the cost

As the description states, this is not real suede leather, but "faux suede" (which I actually prefer). It has a faint plasticky smell, a nice tactile, grippy feel to it, and some neat stitching around the edges. There is a soft flap with a magnetic closure which holds the cover in place when shut, and which can also be bent back out of the way when open, the magnet holding the flap against the back of the case. If you want the cover out of the way completely for one-handed operation, you can bend it back behind the iPad, and the magnetic flap will hold it there.

The iPad sits inside a hard plastic shell which grips it along the two long edges. There are cutouts for the controls on the right side, and the top and bottom edges are completely exposed. It's a perfect fit for the 1st generation (non-retina) iPad Mini, and I like the fact that the grips hardly impinge at all on the facia around the screen area (some cases cover part or all of the facia, making it hard to use the edges of the touch screen.) There's a cutout on the back for the camera - and also another circular hole beside it which doesn't seem to have any purpose.

The grips of the shell are raised very slightly above the edges of the screen, so that the cover, when closed, does not make contact with the iPad unless you press down on it. This is a good thing, as it minimises the risk of scratching. If you do press against the cover, it bends slightly and will contact the screen, but as it's lined with a soft, microfibre-like material, it shouldn't do any harm. The cover will not protect against very heavy pressure, though - it probably won't help much if you step on it, for example.

As a stand, it works surprisingly well, the iPad held in place by friction against the inner material of the cover.

Well made and good looking but sleep function does not work with this case- need to set the ipad mini to "auto lock after 2 mins" otherwise it just keeps running and drains the battery

At first glance this seems to represent great value - an attractive finish and visual design, and seems to be well-manufactured. However, I had a fundamental issue in that the clip-in back plate is not rigid enough, and as a result the iPad keeps falling out. My previous case is of the same basic design (i.e. a clip-in back plate secures the iPad in the case) and in that case, it is impossible for the iPad to fall out (and takes some reasonable leverage to pry it out when you want to remove it). For that reason, I'm only awarding two stars - this might be ok if you use your iPad predominantly around the house, but mine is in and out of a travel bag and used in airports and on the go - I can't risk it falling out.

this case buddy does not remain in a viewing position as shown, you have to place something in front of it to stop it sliding flat or you have to hold it in position which is a bit of a pain apart from that it seems a well made and nice looking case L.S.Croxford

Great value and a nice case. Clipped into the plastic retainer, the iPad mini is securely held within the case and the buttons around the edge are reasonably accessible, though the volume control is a little awkward to get at - not a big problem as I don't often adjust the volume. If I try to prop it at the most shallow angle, the iPad will slip to lie flat, but at anything other than a very shallow angle it stays in place just fine - great for watching movies, but if you're going to do a lot of typing, look for a case that holds it more firmly at shallow angles.
A really good thing about the case is that the faux suede is very grippy - it's not going to slip out of your hand easily or slide / get knocked off any surface it's resting on. The case offers reasonable protection, depending how it lands if you drop it, though if it landed on one of the outer corners, the plastic retaining frame is not going to absorb much impact.
Overall I like it and, at around a tenner, I'd struggle to quibble about the price or value.

Firstly, this arrived super quick despite being only standard delivery. Product seems really well made and works really well as a stand. The s,art function is pretty handy as well. Really impressed.
