    Go with white

    • Written by Marissa M from Telford

    I am not sure why the review stars vary by color and am very surprised that white was better than charcoal so I decided to go with white. I bought mine at Best Buy since the nearest apple store was far away at the time of my iPad purchase. I do love this case and love the fact that it is magnetic to the back of it so it is protected on both sides. I do agree with the case having rough edges that cut into you if you hold it a certain way but that isn’t a deal breaker for me, that just means it’s tougher to bend the case which protects the iPad and is the sole purpose of this. Love it and would buy it again, maybe pink but love both colors.

    White stays white!

    • Written by Matthew K from Eugene

    I wanted to take the time to write a review addressing something I was concerned about, but couldn’t find any feedback online—whether or not the white folio would stay white, and if it got dirty easily. I also want to address other comments from people, including; the edges being too sharp, the material quality/feel, and the price point.

    “Does it stay white?”

    Yes. And surprisingly well. To be fair, I’ve only had this for a little over a week, so I cannot confirm if it fades over time (other reviews of Apple white cases/folios say they don’t), however, this thing is remarkably good at resisting dirt. I’m really not sure how, but it does not pick up dirt, and if it t a mark, it cleans off very easily.

    “Are the edges too sharp?”

    Yes and no. Yes, because they can feel sharp when you’re holding it with the folio case folded closed on type iPad’s back. But you have to trust that this will dull over time, because it does. This is no longer a concern of mine either.

    “Does the material feel weird? / It seems way too expensive.”

    Valid question and concern. I’ll answer these both in the same response. No, it doesn’t feel weird or cheap, in my opinion. This thing isn’t leather. It’s a synthetic material that Apple engineered and almost certainly has patented because it’s so durable and unique feeling. It has a matte finish and the suede on the inside feels incredibly soft. This case is designed remarkably well and is a result of many improvements after learning from generations of iPad cases. The way this folio cover effortlessly attaches to the back of the iPad and aligns perfectly every time, is a testament to how well this product was designed alongside the iPad.

    The bottom line is that you’re getting a premium product for a premium price. If you can afford it, it’s unlikely that you’ll dislike it after getting used to it. Highly recommended, especially in white!
