TDLR: I wish I could have given this case 6 stars!
_Durable faux leather that seems like it would be cheap, but actually lasts a long time.
_SUPER light--like unbelievably feather light. Adds almost no weight to the Fire 7.
_Really well padded and foamy for shock absorption while adding hardly any bulk.
_Looks like a high end portfolio case for $50+; actually costs $10! (WHAT!?)
_Sturdy positions (once you figure out how they work).
_Comfortable to hold in the hand while reading.
_Pencil/stylus holder on top. Never used it but good to have!
_Awesome magnetic closing mechanism that keeps the case shut in backpacks!
_Additional elastic strap to keep case closed or triangle stand upright!
_Auto sleep/wake function!
_Flap on the back, which keeps the stand in place while hand-holding, is a little short and sometimes lets the cover slide out.
_Elastic strap seems like it might lose some elasticity over time (not noticeable yet after 3 weeks though).
_Does not stand in vertical mode, but is super comfortable to hold in vertical mode!
I had a $10 case for my old Fire 7 table that felt like it was about a $10 case. This, however, blows it out of the water. Given a choice, I would take this case over Amazon's official, more expensive, case! It's just about perfect!
