Love this case, and it is funny how dramatically it improved my experience with the actual device. I purchased a cheaper case first, and promptly returned it for this one
Pros: -stylish, classy, and sleek looking
-the auto wake/sleep feature is really nice and saves me battery life.
-the snap system, which attaches the case to the device is extremely sturdy (Def not slipping out of the case ever) and keeps the case very slim. The snaps are the real reason I bought this instead of a cheaper knock off version
-well built and sturdy, seems to give real protection
-the did viewing angles work well and are a breeze to switch between. The benefit here is the use of magnets, which means you dint have to do all that weird rolling and folding to switch between views. You can even swap some views with one hand
-when closed, the narrow magnetized portion on the right folds over for more protection (unlike other models that leave the left side open to the elements
Cons: -difficult to attach the snaps. Fine if you only do it once, but if you plan to take it off regularly it will be a pain. I seriously feels like you could break the glass with how hard you have to press down (probably unlikely, but scary any way)
- hard to open that small flap when its fully closed, seems like it will improve with wear.
-very awkward for portrait use. This is the biggest con for me. There's no easy place to hold this in your left hand, since the places you can get a better grip are all on the right. Lefties, who hold with right hand to type with left, would be happier with the design. But for me it's VERY uncomfortable. maybe I'll adjust. But since the cover is also a bit hard to remove, I find myself using landscape mode even when I'd rather not.
-the different viewING angles can slip easily. The magnets make it easy to move around. ..even when you don't want it to. Not really a problem for me thus far.
-expensive! Really seems over priced, kind of outrageously.
-top and bottom of device is left open. Corners bump out for some fall protection, but still slightly open to the elements.
