iPad smart cover
on 20 August 2012
This is my second cover for my iPad. It's not my favourite but has good and bad points and may well suit yourself , but I will let you decide what suits best.
Good points it's it's very thick and almost padded leather which makes a good protection for case.
The cover is scratch and stain resistant so doesn't easily mark. It's sturdily held in place by 4 plastic clips at the corner , so u can see more of your iPad but has a hole for the camera so you van take photos while still in its case. It has two ways of sitting and is sturdly made so it holds well on its dide for watching movies etc or you can raised for readin or typing. This is a big improvement on cheaper makes where the kickstand tends to be cheaper and eventually fails to hold. .Its appearance is more business like, looking like leather folio inside .
Bad points is the. Smart little clips partly overlap over the on/off button at the top. Inside the case is made of black material that easily stains and attracts hairs -not gd for pets.It comes with two elastic clips to hold it in place over the corner and the magnetic top does not always switch the iPad off like others do. Unless you use the clips to the top easily flaps off enough to leave you iPad switched on. If you are carrying in bags you need to always attach the plastic clips as the magnet does not hold the top closed enough. My battery was getting really low using this as when it's sitting and flip the lid over it the magnet would not hold and the iPad would still be on. Same problems in my bag.
Personally I think this is pros and cons , it's greats it's padded and I like the corner clips. But I hate the poor hold of the magnet and having to ensure I have attached the plastic clips and apart from that the design for me is a bit boring . However for a business user it might be ideal .
