    I feel that the flap gets in the way.

    I bought this case for my Apple IPad mini 4 so I could take it to the gym. When I open it up in landscape view and place it on the easel of the machine I am working out on, the flap does not fold enough. It seems ackward. I think that the the flap would have been better designed if it opened from the other side so it would open flatter and better for right-handers in landscape view.

    I bought my case in the store near me and it seemed good and everything but when I got home and went to put it on my iPad it straight up smelled like pee. I'm sure this is just my case, but it kind of sucks since I paid over $50 for it and now I have to purchase another one, and I can't return this one since I don't have the packaging anymore.

    Upfraded from my first genderation ipad mini to a mini 4 and was looking for a case that was thin, light and yet provided some drop protection. Thanks to an attentive BestBuy employee, I was made aware of this case. It looks great, feels great and has military grade drop protection so it’s likely to survive even if my grandsons get their hands on it. I was searching for the perfect case and I think I found it.

    Purchased for a mini that controls a drone. During typical use searching the internet I find that the edge could be a little more snug to the device. As it is, it does slip off the edge of the device if picked up from the edge when the case is open. A neat feature of this case is it closes the mini’s session when you close the cover.

    The cover does protect the iPad mini fine but the stand option to hold it in a position for reading hands off is awkward. I find myself working to find which direction to fold the cover to hold the iPad in a stand alone reading configuration. It does work just not intuitive, and I do this type stuff naturally most of the time.

    I bought this because the one that i got for my 10.5 ipad Pro worked so well. I have had it for a Year and a half and it is still as good as new. I use it a huge amount of time. I needed the Mini for Pilot training and wanted to protect it while it was not in use.

    I didn't want anything bulky like the otter box, but still want decent protection. Can't go wrong with this one. It's not super thin but not bulky either, a size I really don't mind with quality material.

    My wife gave me this for Christmas along with an iPad Mini 4. She knew I would want a case that protected the iPad and was also functional and this case fits the bill. I think it will provide great protection along with holding the iPad in a convenient position for watching movies while traveling. I also like the look.

    This case fits my mini4 perfectly. A snug fit and no movement. The materials seem to be high quality and doesn’t slide when placed on a smooth surface. The stand feature is nice, but the grooves are a bit small so it may slide out of the position you want it in.

    Owning a construction company and having to use your tech products in the field is challenging. But this Armor gear solved those problems. From full coverage to the impact resistant core I know my equipment is protected.... I've had iPads dropped while using this case with no damage!

    Lightweight but solid folio. Has magnetic clip on side to make sure stays closed. Ridged cover to prevent slippage protecting your iPad mini 4. Only fits the new 4 and not older models. They do have one for those.

    I purchased this for my iPad mini. I mainly use my iPad for watching YouTube/Netflix, etc.. It has many options for viewing angles. Was surprised by the amount of protection it offers as well. Perfect for my needs.

    I normally would have purchased a sturdy, drop proof case but as this is much smaller than my original iPad I am tempting fate with this case. I love it's slim design and magnetic closure. Seems sturdy enough and has a fairly slip resistant surface.

    Just got an iPad Mini. Bought this case to protect it while traveling to Europe. I works GREAT and the core also is used as a stand. Nice grip, fit and easy to put on and take off. Wouldn't use anything else!

    This would be the case for your ipad mini. It's durable & tough. Great for when you facetime family. You could turn it inside out, & have it stand, on the side. You don't need to hold it. It will stand on its own. Works real great.

    I was looking for a case for the IPAD that would keep it from getting damaged under my normal use. This is it. I have dropped it several times and it has done its job well. The IPAD still works and is undamamged

    This is great for our mini iPad ... previously had the otter box but then our child had difficulty playing certain games because finger touch was not responding due to the heavy cover

    This case has been one of my favorites on previous iPads and iPad Pros, its exactly the same for the Mini. The only con is that you can't detach the front cover.
