Changing from Disappointed to DO NOT BUY, downgrading to one star
Reviewed in the United States on January 4, 2020
My original review: It may be lighter, but it is not worth the trade-off. The cover pops off easily when I am holding it one handed. It consists only of a front that hooks onto the side. And though it’s light it still leaves a groove in my little finger as the cover material is so hard.
New review: Not only has this cover proved to be worthless at protecting the miniPad, it wears terribly (see pic, note lower corner wear and tear after not even a year). My device broke in April when this cover failed. Been holding together with mailing tape, but just a matter of time. Finally bought a new one. Buy an Otterbox Defender series cover for the device instead and order directly from Otterbox. Sign up for their email and get 10% off. I got one on sale and it’s a superior product. Slightly heavier but unless you want a broken screen and a worn cover and a sore thumb from this shabby Apple cover your best option.
