As expected, it fits the Lenovo Yoga 2 10 in tablet...but with a few drawbacks.

This review is for the Evecase Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10 inch Case, SlimBook Leather Folio Case Cover w/ Stand Cut-outs for Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10'') w/ Android Version (1050, 59426285) / Windows Version (1051, 59428426) Tablet - Black. I was excited for this "leather" folio case because it ensures protection while still maintaining a look suitable for work. I chose this case over others because it allows full protection of the hinge. Other cases, like one being sold by Fintie, have the hinge open and thus prone to scratches and damages. However, this increases the difficulty in accessing the hinge. It doesn't show in the product photos but the "hinge" cover can be opened by a velcro lining. In order to have that sleek look they have pictured, you need to open the hinge cover, pop open the kick stand, then re-apply the cover back on the velcro; it's not as seamless as the picture makes it out to be. More issues that become apparent after you use the case with the Windows version of the tablet is that you don't have access to the Windows button. The framing of the case covers the button and it's so wide that it also prevents any swipes from the left or right of the screen. It's extremely difficult to access your previously used apps or the charms menu (swiping from the left or right of the screen). It also doubles the weight and thickness of the tablet, decreasing it's usability and ease of use. I've also noticed that because there is a screen cover, it's such a hassle to hold the tablet vertically by the hinge (with the cover flapping about), that I've just stopped using the tablet in that orientation. You can fold the cover back but it just becomes too bulky and unwieldy. For the price, and decent quality, I still say it was a justified purchase. Evecase just has minor oversights into how to actually create a fully customized case.
