Almost Perfect Except For Major Flaw
August 7, 2018
UPDATE: I decided to give this case a second chance and It's 0 for 2. This time I ordered the (2-1 Black) case and this one came with no Velcro strip to hold the kindle paper white in securely. I'm sending this one back too. I don't think that I want to go for a strikeout so I won't be giving this a third try. Very disappointing!
I liked a lot of things about this case but I could not get past the one big flaw that caused me to return it. That flaw was the auto wake/sleep feature didn't work correctly. When I opened or closed the case my Paperwhite did not turn on or off. I could have lived with that, after all I'm not so lazy that I cannot press the off/on button myself. What I couldn't live with was the fact that while reading it would turn on/off randomly. I assume it did that because I had the case cover folded back (as you have to do in order to hold it comfortably) and what ever triggers the on/off function of the Paperwhite worked (or didn't work depending on how you look at it). The case itself felt great, fit well, had a great hand strap and stylus holder as well as a little pockets for credit cards, money or business cards. I did noticed that there are two different black colors offered and am curious if the design I picked (1-Black) is flawed but the other one (2-1-Black) is ok because there are many positive reviews for this case. I debated living with the flaw but it was just annoying so I returned the case. I haven't decided yet if I am going to give this case another try or just try to find something else. You know the old saying about once bitten twice shy.
