Not much Purple, in the Purple Paisley design.
May 25, 2018
I'm passionate about purple! I was hoping the purple paisley design had A LOT more purple in it. Most of the purple is in the background, between the paislies. There's a lot of orange, (my least favorite color) yellow, red, turquoise and pink, but not much purple, so one star off for the misleading description, which should be more like, "paisley multi". I only bought this case because it was supposed to be a PURPLE, paisley design and I didn't want, yet another, solid purple case. So, one star off for the misleading pattern description.
The second star came off when I tried to apply the screen protector, that did not come with instructions for application. It attracted dust like a magnet and the adhesive was ruined before I got one corner of the protective film removed. Plus, there was two stickers attached to two of the corners, indicating back and front, that when removed, left adhesive residue behind, where it would clearly be visible. There was absolutely no way to apply this screen protector and keep it dust-free, unless someone knows a trick that I'm not aware of. I planned on buying a glass screen protector, anyway, but thought I'd give this one a try, but, like deep dish pizza for a diabetic, this was a "why bother?"
The third star was removed when I felt the microfiber lining. It's not soft. It's actually irritating to touch it. Maybe it will soften, with use, but right now, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.
I'm deaf, so I really didn't care whether or not the holes for the speakers lined up. They seem to.
The rest of the cutouts are fine. I've had two cases ruin the place where the power cord plugs in, because you had to push on the tablet to expose enough room to plug in the cord, which after releasing the tablet, would then cause the case to push on the cord and eventually, mess up the contacts, so the cord would ultimately, just fall out and you could no longer charge the tablet. I have a fix for that, but it's kind of ugly, however it works. If you install this case, correctly, all the cut outs line up nicely.
As I've done with other cases in the past, I tied a ribbon under the top of the case, to use as a carry handle, because you can't pick up one of these tablets by the top, case, or no case, without changing something or losing your losing your place. Yes, the ribbon will be purple.
So, all things considered, I'm sure the case will protect my tablet and not mess up the contacts on the power cord inlet. Not planning on touching the lining much, but I do hope it softens up a bit. Screen protector; not that big an issue, as I'm planning on buying a glass one. Color, I guess I can live with it. At least I'll be able to find it in the dark.
