Not the most practical design, but could deter would-be thieves
Reviewed in the United States on August 17, 2018
I bought the composition book design, which is a great way to disguise that this case holds a Kindle Fire. If you are out in public and lay it down, it's less likely to be stolen.
This case hinges on the side of the Kindle Fire 8 where the speakers are located. When you fold the cover back to sit the Kindle Fire up in landscape orientation, the speakers are firing DOWN rather than up. While this won't really affect the sound when you set it up on a solid shelf, you will be partially muting the volume if you put it on something soft like the arm of a padded easy chair or a bed.
The cover flops around when folded completely back flat and the Kindle is held by hand.
