The comparative review of covers of Beyzacases, Lakoiie and Piel Frama for iPad 2

Accessories for iPad 2 the great unlimited quantity is issued. The most remarkable sector are covers – is a lot of wishing to give a special look to own planshetnik and to protect it. In this review we will consider three covers of price level that is called a little above an average. So, before me three covers for iPad 2: Executive II from Beyzacases of production of Turkey, the European Lakoiie (L1021BLACK model) and the Cinema model from Piel Frama from Spain. All of them, on assurance of sellers, from a genuine leather. Well, we will try to understand, what properties these accessories that in their general possess, and than they they differ.

Acquaintance to similar things begins with packing. About it I will tell briefly, after all practically all is visible and on a photo.

Packing from Beyza – the transparent plastic blister. The cover can be beheld, without opening packing. Comfortably, but it is dullish. Lakoiie offers a cardboard box with a magnet – excellent and by sight, and on feelings the gift packing, pleasant color. Piel Frama usually uses cardboard packing with a cover of orange color – greatly and convincingly, as well as it is necessary to high-class production.

I get covers and I consider them closer. the 1st that appears on a look – skin at covers absolutely different. Quite rigid surface of a cover of Beyza is covered with uniform drawing in small "setochka". The stamping that drawing was homogeneous is certainly used. It is guards a little, because some producers or hide a similar stamping skin defects, or in general "palm off" leather substitutes. Does not inspire trust and began to smell – sharp, caustic, plastic. Cheap chekholchik from Heavenly Empire were for some reason remembered … But, maybe, dye therefore while we continue to trust an inscription on a box so smells and we consider that before us skin. And here where there were no fluctuations in naturalness and high quality of skin is at Lakoiie. The natural invoice of a surface from malekhanky wrinkles in a combination to a worthy smell as in salon of expensive car – it is fine. The cover from Piel Frama, in comparison with others, does not smell as anything. Well, can, as something artificial the lining smells. Skin very soft also has no any drawing.

"Tablet" of the second generation from Kupertino – the device easy and very narrow. What from this point of view left at producers of covers? Results – on a photo.

The cover of Beyza will add to an accessory 249 гр. Lakoiie cover – the easiest, also can повытрепываться in weight in 168 гр. And Piel Frama became "leader" in heavy weight – the result in 310 гр frankly impressed … In the same order results of measurements of thickness were built also.

For purity of experience measurements were carried out with the inserted planshetnik. The thickness of a cover of Beyza made 18 mm. The result of a cover of Lakoiie is slightly better – 17 mm. And with a bolshushchy separation Piel Frama cover – its thickness of 31 mm that actually twice more than at competitors "is in the lead".

At present a little about appearance of covers. Covers of covers of Beyza and Lakoiie are visually broken into separate segments. Piel Frama cover, with a monotonous smooth surface, looks frankly boringly. Here a type of the covers closing the screen (at the left on the right of Beyzacases, Lakoiie, Piel Frama):

Let’s open chekholchik, and we will see the following:

At Beyzacases a lining from the soft velvety material reminding suede. There is an outlook that such surface is capable even to "clean" a screen surface a little. Perhaps, that it really so. Both skin, and a lining the dark – a cover looks strictly and convincingly. To enclose iPad in a cover from Beyza left simply and simply. Cover neither close, nor unduly free. Just right. The accessory is fixed by "uvula" which refuels inside, «for iPad». Lakoiie cover appeared the hardest. No, I did not test troubles at device insertion, but was really туговато. To be fair it is necessary to tell that time on the 5th (and it was necessary to "change clothes" of iPad very often) "tablet" was inserted already much easier – skin of an accessory was a little stretched. The cover as though flows round iPad – the device keeps very reliably. And in a cover from Piel Frama "tablet" it is put quite freely. That iPad did not drop out when using, it is fixed by "uvula" on "flypaper".
And so covers already with a planshetnik look:

Successful access to management elements – the obligatory requirement to a good cover. Anybody from producers did not blunder – in one cover introduction by the device is not complicated. All buttons and sockets are available, it was not possible to reveal any essential "distortions".

Difference in cuts the purely esthetic. As to personal emotions, realization of technological openings at Beyza and Lakoiie very was pleasant. The deepest niches of a cover of Piel Frama, in my opinion, look roughly and a little archaically.

In total from the presented covers are transformed to supports, but the mechanism of transformation differs. The cover from Beyzacases uses the same principle, as unique "rug" – the cover is turned off in a triangle, and it is possible either to put an accessory, or to put on a table with a small inclination that will be with comfort, for example, at work with texts. Stability in vertical situation average. Lakoiie offers more ordinary way, but with interesting completion – on the back party of a cover and on a cover, under "uvula" with a logo, "buttons" are placed. A cover, being bent, props up a return part of a cover and it is fixed by one of "buttons". In a vertical look we receive two enough distinguishable a tilt angle. Stability excellent. In a horizontal look too two situation, but they are almost indistinguishable. And here at a cover of Piel Frama the back part is bent. Idea excellent, but realization, in my opinion, the bad. Any notable fixing simply is not present." The support" in vertical situation keeps is more or less acceptable, if in the skilled way to find a successful tilt angle. Horizontal situation not so suits typing or similar actions – the cover noticeably "springs" actually from each contact.

As it is clear, unique "rug" is capable to include iPad when opening and to switch off when closing cover. Many extraneous producers of covers did not pass this fact. That’s all exposed covers perfectly cope with this task – everyone received a plus.
I think, many users noted that production of some producers of covers, to put it mildly, disturbs ordinary work of a compass and some functions of a number of programs of navigation. Let’s find out, how with it affairs at considered samples are. For descriptive reasons it was necessary to use one more device, we will call it reference. Apparently on a photo, covers are really capable to distort compass readings.

So, without covers two devices show actually same direction: 260 degrees on the studied device, and 262 degrees on the reference. With beyzacases iPad cover first persistently issued the message on compass hindrances. After long manipulations nevertheless it was possible to receive result – 298 degrees. As a result, a difference in 36 degrees from face value. Lakoiie cover at all did not reject an arrow of a compass – result of 263 degrees that coincided with indications on on the reference device. Most of all surprised Piel Frama cover – iPad at first indicated existence of hindrances, and late gave out result in 85 degrees. And this actually turnaround direction! Yes, in a campaign the accessory with such cover is absolutely capable to repeat Ivan Susanin’s feat …

The cover not only appropriates additional visualization to the device. One of its functions – to protect iPad from falling, blows, scratches. Theoretically, for good protection of the screen the cover should have a certain hardness to absorb or weaken blow. The back party of a cover is not so basic, because the aluminum iPad cпособен case to sustain practically everything. The iron ball in weight was useful for malekhanky experience in kg – we will check covers on "deflection".

As it is possible to behold, the rigid cover of Beyza actually did not cave in. At blow, at least in the theory, it will be diffused" on a big surface that increases chances on screen preservation. The back part of a cover too rigid – thus "tablet" is perfectly protected and from a reverse side. The cover of a cover of Lakoiie sustained a kilogram ball, but, apparently on a photo, provides less reliable protection. And behind the accessory should rely on an aluminum krepkost – "back" of a cover of Lakoiie very narrow and quite elastic. Vobshchem, from scratches this cover will help out "tablet" without hesitation. I think, as the most reliable defender of iPad Piel Frama cover – not including good will serve resistance to mechanical deformations, both the cover, and a reverse side of this cover frankly chubby – under skin is felt a soft layer. Not including that, only this cover at the expense of design features is capable to protect perfectly really both corners, and lateral faces when falling device if such suddenly happens.

And we will at present glance in covers. Absolutely inside. I will tell honest, it was a pity to me to cut covers, but research interest won, and the hand did not tremble.

The 1st patient, and directly Beyza chekholchik, gave in to only good scissors on metal. As it appeared, in a cover, directly under skin, the powerful elastic steel plate is hidden. As I understand, its metal is urged to shield impact of magnets on the sensor of turning on of the device that the cover did not switch off iPad at an excess back. Perhaps, the plate extinguishes magnetic fields and for more or less truthful compass reading a little. By the way, magnets, and enough huge, whole 5. What is closer to the center, is responsible for accessory "zasypaniye". Four magnets on corners fix a heavy cover in a closed position. It is necessary to guess only that will occur, if metal itself is magnetized over time. Other segments of a cover – strips of a rigid cardboard. A velvety material of a lining – artificial, on woven base. The frame of the screen of a cover is executed from the very narrow sheet plastic fitted by skin. A back part of a cover – skin, a cardboard and a lining. Skin and lining fabric in junctions "on an edge" are as though soldered in a single whole. Not including solderings, a cover it is stitched on a contour. Seams simply gave in to a sharp knife, but it is very improbable that are capable to "disperse" in use.

Lakoiie cover inside appeared structurally similar to beyza. A frame round the screen – too the very narrow plastic from above fitted by skin, and from a reverse side – artificial suede. After cutting of a cover it became clear that between an external surface from skin and an internal lining the cardboard and a very narrow layer of transparent plastic is pasted. Opposite to the zasypaniye sensor of the device it was possible to find tiny цилиндрик a magnet. On corners of a cover of any magnets it was not found. It appears, the cover in the closed condition is not fixed at all. But it became clear, why the compass shows correctly – directly in the absence of any additional magnets on corners. The back surface of a cover consists of the stuck together boundaries itself skin and linings, therefore it such very narrow and flexible. The internal lining is executed from the artificial material, reminding skin." Buttons" are used qualitative and established perfectly – to pull out them without introduction of tools did not leave. Also the cover – usmotritelny lines, a strong thread is greatly stitched also. To carp there is nothing.

The 3rd turn of the programme – a cover from Piel Frama which did not present special surprises. Unless regarding durability of glue Spaniards in particular tried – everything appeared is stuck together so thoroughly that in the course of "dismantling" it was necessary to work. And so, too a plastic frame of the screen under a skin layer, too cardboard base of a cover. The lining similar to vinyl exfoliated from the base, than from a cardboard even easier. In corners and on the contrary zasypaniye sensor quite huge shaybochka of magnets are integrated. The central magnet is closed from outer side of a cover by the screen – the pasted slice of a tin. All this design also gave aimings on an electronic compass. Under skin as I also assumed, there was approximately a semi-centimetric layer of the foam rubber which has been stuck together with skin tightly. Here such puff pie giving to a cover record volume. The cover as thoroughly is stitched, as well as glued – there can be no complaints.

The final step of comparison answered questions concerning truthfulness of skin. Whether skin flares? If for a long time to take over fire, dries up and absolutely perfectly flares. To it promotes and the paint put on a surface. At not so long influence of fire skin chars, allocating a respective smell. All samples proved that deserve to be called as a genuine leather.
