    Works as Advertised

    This tablet cover is great. It does a good job of covering the tablet, protecting the screen and the magnetic closure does a great job of both keeping the cover closed and turning the tablet on and off when opening and closing. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the lacking instructions for install. Yes it is straight forward for the most part, but I didn't know that the cover attached via the snaps on the cover that have to be pushed with a good amount of force to seat in the holes in the back of the tablet. I thought at first it might be a magnetic attachment and thought mine might be broken when trying to attach. After researching online, I knew I had to push the snaps in and at one point was concerned that this may crack the screen. It did not and it is on there to stay.

    Not coming loose, ever.

    The book cover works well and the bare minimum pictograph instructions printed inside the box did not work for me at all. Thought I was going to be returning it. No matter how hard I pressed, from the tablet side, I could not get a secure connect. Then I tried applying pressure from the backside while holding the tablet facing away from me. Tada, snapped into place almost immediately and has been secure ever since. Did take the cover off once, thought I was going to have get a pry bar from the garage. It came off ok but if this is a hint of things to come this cover will be around for a long time. The three positions illustrated on the box and on the cover itself work well for me. Workmanship and quality of materials looks good, at least for 3 weeks of daily use. Pricey, you bet but on sale I'd get one.

    Good once you figure it out

    When I first tried to put this on my tablet, I couldn't figure out what to do. I could see that the white tabs were supposed to fit into the silver notches on the tablet, but I had the hardest time fitting. I had to watch a YouTube tutorial to know what to do. The tabs will fit, but you have to squeeze the tablet and the cover together extremely hard, to the point that you feel uncomfortable doing to-until u finally hear a loud click. I was squeezing before watching the tutorial but not hard enough. I was afraid I would damage the tablet. It would have been nice to have that info in a how-to with the cover. Other than that, it functions well. Could be a little sturdier, but I am satisfied.

    I liked it when I first got it, but after realizing it cost the same as a safer one, I decided I ought to return it. I am sometimes clumsy and I don't see this as offering much protection. It might be good for business people who use it for nothing but, but for someone who uses it lazily around the house, it was definitely not for me. It has a nice standing feature, but is quite awkward to hold and take pictures with since you have to keep the flap out of the way and still see the screen and the camera to use the camera.

    Good Cover if you don't need a keyboard

    I really like this cover as it does not add bulk to the tablet and has built in stand. The only problem I had was attaching the tablet to the cover. The cover has no instructions on this and you need to snap the two 'knobs' into the tablet back (it was difficult to get them matched up and snapped in and actually required a trip back to the store for assistance). Also, you must realize that this cover provides no protection if you drop the tablet!

    Solid book cover for Tab S2 8

    Had it for about a month and it fits perfectly and the leather appears to be very durable. A little pricey but it is head and shoulders better than the Platinum book cover that it replaced (which started to fall apart after a month). While the cover allows for landscape orientation stand on a table top, it does not have the ability to do that with a portrait orientation.

    Slim profile that doesn't add bulk.

    Great slim profile that protects the Samsung tablet from scratches. Opening or closing the cover conveniently turns the tablet on or off. Doesn't have any safety shock absorbing features against drops. If it did, I would have rated it excellent. But I'm still happy with the purchase. P.S. You have to push hard to attach the cover to the tablet. Some guy gave a good demo on YouTube.

    This book cover fits perfectly and quite snugly. Its weight is very light and does not add much to the overall weight of the tablet and cover. I did not give it a five star rating because it is difficult to figure out how to fold the cover for different viewing positions. Other than that it works great.

    This is a little tricky to get attached to your tablet, but then you feel silly when you figure it out. It props fairly nicely, though some of the angles are not quite what I would prefer. I haven't dropped my tab, but I don't see this cover offering a lot of protection for that.

    Very hard to install. Had to take back to Best Buy and have them install it on the tablet. I was afraid I was going to break the tablet. Other than that the cover works really good. Happy with it. I gave it 4 stars because I had to take it back to the store to have the Cover install.

    Sometimes it struggles to stay upright in certain positions, but it's still well designed for the price you pay. I enjoy this case and would recommend it to someone who doesn't not want to spend a lot (I use it in conjunction with a high quality screen protector).

    Love the look and feel of the cover.. It snaps easily into place and easily fits the tablet. The stand for reading is also simple and useful. If you frequently take the cover on and off it takes a lot of pressure to snap the cover into and out of place.

    I was looking for a tablet cover for my daughter's tablet. The Best Buy guy recommended this cover and it seems to work well. It is a little big, but seems to be durable enough to handle the occasional drops. So far so good.

    The cover is difficult to put on the product, almost felt I was going to break the tablet. Other than that the cover has held up very well for the 6 months so far including several drops from the exercise machines

    Love the look of the stand and great feature to turn off when cover is closed. Disappointed with its ability to convert to angled stand for viewing. It does not adjust to more than one angle and maintain stability

    When I first bought this cover I was confused as to how to use it. I did go online and found the answers I needed and now find it to be very serviceable cover that I can use in multiple positions.

    Purchased this cover to replace a Best Buy cover that wore out within a month. Had this cover for about a year and it's still in great shape. Just wish it was a little less expensive.

    Very functional and looks great. Goes well with the gold platinum Tab S2. Like the way the case is physically affixed to tablet. In addition the magnetic closures provide a secure fit around the tablet.

    I love the clock display and the alarm/ringer animations in the cover - its why I bought it. Beware removing the phone, the case can crack in the corners if you are not careful.
