HDX 7 case - huge design fault
on 7 December 2014
Though maybe a little on the heavy side due to the magnets, the feel and quality of the case is fine. But as reported by various other customers, when folded flat against the back of the kindle the magnet triggers the sleep sensor and turns the screen off, essentially rendering it useless as this is how I use my kindle the vast majority of the time (as I imagine most do). Considering the price (which, in my opinion, is way too high even without the design flaws) and Amazon's reputation, I'm surprised this made it through testing.
Will definitely be returning it which is a huge shame as it's a decent case and stand in many other respects.
