Cracked in Less Than Two Months
Reviewed in the United States on July 28, 2019
I wanted to love this case. The price was tight, the style was right (can we please get away from the bully and overwrought designs on some of the cases?), but this case simply won’t hold up.
To begin with, the front cover dents/deforms and scuffs even in a bag. I took this in my carry on backpack on a recent domestic flight and four hours later, there were dents and scuffs on the cover, and the case had somehow cracked on the brittle plastic near the power button and headphone jacks. No impact, no excessive pressure- nothing.
Look, I know you get what you pay for. I also know that this is a gorgeous looking slim case with a ton of great color options.
But get it for the aesthetics and know that while it’ll prevent scratches on your iPad, there’s not likely going to be drop protection and it is going to get beat up, especially if you put it in a bag with other items.
I’d buy it again because of the price, the light protection and colors, but buyer’s beware- beauty sometimes is only surface deep.
Changing my review to 1 Star. This case has deteriorated to the point it is so cracked around the edges of my iPad, it won’t even hold the iPad in. I have flown with it twice and it has left my bag only for security check points and while in use. It had never left my nightstand beyond that. It didn’t even last two months and massive chunks of plastic have cracked right off. I went to return and I’m past my “window”. Very displeased, no response from seller. So much for brand integrity. Even for a case at this price point, I expect more than two months of light usage. Last time I let aesthetics guide my purchase. Absolute garbage.
