Decent case, for about 2 months!
Reviewed in the United States on January 2, 2019
My old Kindle would not hold any charge, so I bought a replacement and needed a case to fit. I tried this one and at first I liked most everything about it. Good feel, the outside is not slick, so when placed on a table , if it gets bumped, it's not likely to slide off the edge unless you really give it a shove.
However, after only a couple months, the tiny magnets no longer stay in their slots. I open the case and most of the time the magnets come out and are stuck on the inside of the front cover. One magnet slot had a small crack that goes from the outside edge to the inside edge, but the other looks intact and still the magnet comes up when the cover is opened. Now, the crack goes completely through the plastic and the corner of the case pops off easily.
One other minor thing I miss in my old case is that it had a diagonal crease in the cover that could be folded out, similar to a table top picture frame. Using that, the Kindle could be opened in the upright (portrait) position and the case would hold it there. Since I use the Kindle in that orientation most often unless viewing videos, that was handy but this case only fold out to prop up the Kindle in the horizontal or landscape position.
