1st reviews of Smart Case
The cover, which emergence predicted earlier at first the planned date, represents dream of economical owners of new iPad. After all Smart Case — it as beautiful Smart Cover, only with additional protection of the back panel of the device. Whether so it is good, how it seems at the 1st look? Judging by the first reviews, memoirs about an accessory correspond to expectations of buyers not enough.
Unlike Smart Cover, Smart Case not perfectly proves to be in different orientations. During the folding of the top part and placement in horizontal situation, the tablet settles down under the minimum corner, and the cover frame round the monitor complicates typing on the screen keyboard. It is possible to get used to it, but it will take time. It is possible to put also a tablet in vertical situation, but we do not advise it to do. My 3rd iPad badly stayed put — much more awfully, than from Smart Cover.
I consider Smart Case at a slow pace back, instead of forward. Though if you liked Smart Cover, and you longed, that it protected the device slightly better — it is that step back which can be made consciously.
Though the Apple also was possible to make an accessory slightly better, than Smart Cover, all the same it is impossible to deliver to Smart Case in one row with other, other options from other producers.
Difficulties of a new cover: strongly there is a lot of empty seat inside because of what iPad crawls there and back; weak magnets; eventually, to hold it not so with comfort. But it provides good protection.
Smart Case is not similar to the Apple product. I would not call it "cheap stuff", but it all the same seems unfinished and unreasoned. If you very much are afraid to drop the iPad — then Smart Case becomes good purchase. But even so other offers — like a cover from Otterbox — can prove to be better. If you are going to use Smart Case of times a day — be going to get something another.
We wait in the Russian Federation for 3000 rubles. Or we do not wait.
