    Sharp edges makes it miserable to hold

    • Written by David H from Issaquah

    I purchased this smart folio at an Apple Store. I had one for my previous iPad Mini and it worked and felt great. This one works Great but feels horrible. The material is much stiffer and the edges much sharper which makes the device uncomfortable to hold. I frequently find myself taking the iPad out of the case for reading since the device itself is so much more comfortable in my hands without the case. This is something I never experienced with my previous smart folio for my iPad Mini 4.

    I’m usually happy to pay the extra for official Apple cases because everything just works perfectly. However having taken delivery of this folio today I was left dissapointed. When the case is closed and also being used as a stand the case looks great. However when holding the iPad with the case folded over, it creates a sharp edge all the way round the back edge of the iPad. I have ended up taking this case off after an hour of use as it makes holding the iPad uncomfortable. (When case-less, the new Ipad has been my favourite to hold yet).

    Also the case doesn’t have the usual imprinted Apple logo on the rear, not a big deal but leaves me feeling that the quality standards have slipped and the prices keep going up.

    This is the first Apple product I’m going to return and I’ll hold out and see what magnetic cases 3rd party companies come up with in the coming weeks.
