IS IT REALLY OFF WHEN IT IS CLOSED????
on August 15, 2014
I ordered this case because I have this type for many other tablets I own and love the versatility of having it stand landscape or portrait mode. It was also great that it was a smart case so you didn't have to worry about turning it off or on with a push of a button.
However, being a smart case isn't so smart. I have noticed that even though I close the case, it doesn't turn off the display sometimes. I had caught this problem when I saw light seeking through the sides of the case. So I decided to turn it off manually, then close the case. Unfortunately, this didn't even work as it would sometimes turn it ON when it was closed. It is also sporadic when it comes to turning on when opening the case.
Because of these issues that can cause MAJOR BATTERY ISSUES, I will be returning this case. And to add another thing, this case is extremely slick as the fake leather is more like plastic. My other cases with the same style are a more soft, leathery feeling that isn't slick (and they are fake leather, too).
If you are willing to keep peeking through the slots of the case to see if it is off and don't mind it being a very slippery material, then it isn't a bad case for you.
