After purchasing the MoKo case, I was looking around for some video reviews. Most reviews left me with questions that I eventually found on forums, so I put everything that I wanted to know into my own video review. So hopefully this'll be helpful to someone else. :)

This case is absolutely perfect for me. I had ordered a Poetic Slimline and was terribly disappointed with many aspects of that case. This MoKo case fixes all those issues.

It's lightweight, but still protective. I wouldn't go throwing your tablet around, but if sitting in a bag or backpack this case will keep it safe.

Unlike the Slimline, this case isn't ridiculously tight and difficult to take the tablet out. The volume and power buttons are easy to access, and there is no blocking of the speakers, USB port, or camera. When closed it will block the magnetic pogo spot, but seeing as there are virtually no accessories utilizing that port it means nothing to me. Should a pogo charger ever be available one can easily access it by opening the case.

The wake/sleep function works great and the overall look of the case is quite simple (no gaudy logos plastered on the case). Additionally, unlike most Nexus 10 cases found on Amazon, this one qualified for Prime shipping. I ordered it on a Tuesday around 8pm and it was in my possession by 1pm on Thursday.

I couldn't be happier with this case.

EDIT on April 18, 2013: I wanted to add to my review regarding the durability of the case. Sadly, it isn't the best in this department. In only 2 months of use the cover has become quite worn and is even falling apart. I'm not going to deduct any stars from my initial review as the incredible affordability of the product outweighs this defect, but I felt it was worth mentioning. Additionally, I plan to contact the sellers as in the description it states lifetime warranty. I've yet to come across another case that suits my needs, so I'd really like to get my current one replaced.

EDIT on April 19, 2013: I contacted the seller of this case via the link found on Amazon. A few hours later I received a reply (didn't expect such a quick response). Essentially, I am to purchase another case using my Amazon account and then supply the seller with my order number. At that time they will refund the purchase price as well as any shipping costs regarding this new case. I also do not have to return my damaged case. Saying this is exceptional customer service is an understatement.

I have now used the Moko case for several days and this is my comprehensive review:

* Base/back- It is a molded hard plastic cradle-type back case. The back snaps around the body of the N10 perfectly and like a glove. It easily snaps in and takes quite some effort to remove it. It will never come off by accident. The inside of it is covered in microfiber cloth. The outside has a lightly textured vinyl which makes it easier to hold and gives it a bit of grip (and style). It has a nicely designed opening on the back for the camera, flash, and mic. The sides do not wrap completely around the areas with ports, allowing access to the power, volume, headphone, USB, HDMI, and POGO connector. The molding is perfect, has no gaps, no burrs, and no sharp or uncomfortable edges.

* Cover/flap- It has a very thin, segmented, vinyl front cover flap that folds back for use and to act as a support. The back (inside) of the flap is covered in a type of soft microfiber cloth. The front (outside) of the flap is covered in the same lightly textured vinyl as the outside of the base case. When the flap is closed over the front, the POGO connector is not accessible.

* Closure- The flap is held closed by use of two tiny but strong magnets on the top/center edge of the case (spaced about 1" apart) which makes contact with a metal clasp on the flap. The clasp is shiny silver with a handsome "Moko" logo visible on the outside (there is no other logo or printing anywhere on the case back or flap). Some people have concerns the metal closure might somehow scratch the screen. Although it seems possible, I think it is highly unlikely.

* Auto sleep- There is a magnet embedded in the flap on the opposite side of the closure clasp that will tell the tablet when the cover flap is opened or closed. It seems to work about 99% of the time, but I did find at least once where the tablet did not sleep when I closed the flap... and in that case, I was in a game that disabled the screen saver, so the tablet never went to sleep. Yet it worked fine all other times with that same game.

* Protection- The case will over very good scratch and bump protection across the entire back. It will also offer excellent side projection on three sides and all four corners, with only moderate protection across the "hinge" side, where the front cover flap is connected. Also offers protection across the screen from scratching/prints/etc but not impact. A case of this type will offer some protection from drops on hard surfaces, but because it is thin, don't expect all that much. The relatively hard plastic will have very little energy absorbing properties.

* Stand- There are essentially two stand modes, both landscape-only. The primary stand (highly upright) is created by folding the flaps cover's three segments into a triangle under the base. It is held in that configuration by friction and the weight of the tablet pushing on it. It is surprisingly strong, stable, and useful in this configuration. The secondary stand "mode" is a triangle with the tablet lying mostly down for a light angle. This configuration is less robust and more space-consuming, since most of the triangle is outside the footprint of the tablet when in use. However, it is still a useful configuration, although the tablet is "upside down" and a few stupid apps prevent 180 degree screen rotation in that mode (no fault of the case, of course). Don't expect to use either stand mode while it is in your lap.

* Non-stand- Normal, non-stand use will have you flipping the cover 180 degrees flat against the back of the unit. There is nothing to keep it in that configuration and the flap will slide around a bit during use, which might take some getting used to. You also have to be wary of what you set the tablet onto when used this way, since the inside of the flap (microfiber) is now facing the elements and will pick up dirt, debris, cat hair, liquid or anything else and subsequently present that to the screen when you later close the flap (it will do this some in the stand-mode also). I will note something interesting- the microfiber's "grabbiness" is an advantage when using the tablet with it resting in your pants leg. It prevents the tablet from moving and sliding around MUCH better than without the case (which is surprising, considering the back of the N10 is rubbery). This turns out to be one of the best hidden features of the Moko.

* Issues- The unit does have a strange and objectionable smell, which dissipates over time (but slowly). I assume it is the glue, and it smells a lot like urine. The front cover is only held in place (closed) at one area. It generally keeps the flap covering the screen, but isn't difficult to dislodge. The magnet can scrape/scratch the closure clasp. On my unit, within one day, it had scraped through the chrome plating on the underside of the clasp, revealing the copper metal underneath. This is probably mostly cosmetic- we shall see. I am not sure how durable the thin, glued-together-laminated cover will be, especially on the edges and the stress points on the "hinge" area. So far it seems OK, but I can tell it is going to wear some.

* Conclusion- You are probably not going to find a less bulky, thinner, or lighter N10 case than the Moko. Yet it still offers quite a bit of protection and convenience and at an absolutely superb price and looks nice too. I can tell it might wear the cover flap more than some other designs, but at this price, you could buy spares and still not care. It is not a "rugged" case to protect against extreme conditions or hard drops but most people will not want or need that type of case, anyway. It meets my needs perfectly and I am very happy with the product.

I originally purchased a Poetic Slimline case for my Nexus 10, and while I liked it very much, it didnt have cutouts for the volume and power buttons, and it was not easy to get the tablet out of the case. These were somewhat annoying sticking points for me, so I went ahead and purchased this case, as it had cutouts for the buttons. When it first arrived, I was very impressed with it. The quality seemed just as good as the Poetic case, but i REALLY liked the cutouts for the buttons. It also was much easier to remove the tablet from the new case. I also liked the chrome clasp on the cover, as it lent an elegant feel. Needless to say, I sold the poetic case to a friend, and kept this one. A few weeks later, the one of the magnets started coming out of the case when I would lift the cover. I kept reinserting it into its slot. Eventually, the plastic part of the case where the magnets were held in place cracked and broke off, rendering it useless. All in all, I really liked the case, but the build quality turned out to be less than stellar.

Let me start by saying that I have both this and the similar Poetic case.
The Moko case has far better build quality, BUT...and this is a big but... the metal clasp on the cover can scratch screen

The other day I to put my tablet in my backback and left for the day.
Turns out that the tablet was placed in my bag in a way that the cover could slide back and forth a bit in the bag. This caused the metal clasp to rub on the screen a bit. Well the rubbing left marks/ lights scratches, that while barely perceptible, should not be an issue in a product meant to protect from scratches.

Luckily the marks are light and can only be seen when there is finger grease on the scratched part.

You have been warned..

I will be returning this case and will stick with my Poetic case.

I purchased this item after owning the Poetic Slim case & worrying about how tight it fit my Nexus 10. I had also read several favorable reviews on the fit of this item as well as the overall quality on this site and other forums. My initial thoughts were ok; a better fit around the body (not as tight), but the flap is more flimsy and the magnets are weaker holding it in place. I lived with it and kept it on my tablet for protection, but after just 2 weeks the flap started to fall apart. First the short edges, where I hold it most often while in landscape mode began to split at the seam; then finally the corners gave out exposing the metal strip that the magnets hold onto in the flap. Can't say I'm surprised, at $9 I wasn't expecting much, but 2 weeks is pretty bad if you ask me. I'm going with one of the TPU cases as that seems to fit my needs & use case better. This seems to be made for more casual, light use cases (I use my N10 constantly).

Only reason I am giving this case 4 stars instead of five is because of the quality. The case is amazing, and fits amazing, especially for the price. The only downside is that after 2 weeks of owning it, the edges of the case are already splitting apart to reveal the metal plate inside the case. Just know you get what you pay for...

The fit is perfect and the cover offers great protection at an awesome price. Really, how much more can you get for $9 to your door?

This is my fourth case for the N10, and it is my favorite. I will compare to the Gmyle, Bear Motion leather, and Amzer silicon in this review.

The Moko Ultra Slim is very lightweight at 7.4 ounces (the lightest of the four), and holds the device securely without making it totally obnoxious to remove from the case. The on/off works well. It is truly ultra slim. I like the flexible front cover for a device this large. Two of my cases got 5-star ratings, but I prefer this one for my own uses because I'm a wimpy girl and it's slim, sleek, and lightweight. It just looks nice. I paid $14.99 so it wasn't cheap, but it's worth the money.

Now for the others.

The most similar to this was the Gmyle. It was also ultra slim, but an ounce heavier at 8.5. It had a flap to close the front cover, which I would rather do without. The biggest problem was that when I folded the front cover flat against the back, it turned my tablet off again. I had to hyperextend it to prevent this from happening, which was somewhat awkward, inconvenient, and unsightly. It was cheap though, about $10 after shipping. I gave it 3 stars.

The other 5-star was the Bear Motion leather, a good choice if extra protection is a priority, and also nice if you want the most professional looking case, IMO. The design involves several layers of leather. The front flap is rigid, which isn't as easy to wrap around to the back, but you get used to it. For me, the drawback was the weight. It comes in the heaviest, at 11.9 ounces, a significant amount of weight. Cost is around $21, but for leather that's pretty good. Still highly recommend the Bear Motion, and I might keep mine for when that extra protection is necessary, like if I suddenly start traveling the world and sending my wonderful N10 through airport luggage. (Yeah, right).

My 4-star case was the overpriced Amzer silicon ($20, though it's come down since then). It was 7.5 oz, but felt heavier than the 8.5 oz Gmyle, just because of how the weight was distributed. It was thick and clunky looking, and very grippy, which made sliding it into my neoprene sleeve a chore. It picked up dust and lint easily. The sides around the speaker fit loosely, because there was a long stretch where the outermost aspect of the case on both sides wasn't attached to anything to secure it. For these reasons, I ended up continuing my search. I also decided to get something that covered the front of the device.

So after a long search, I finally found the Moko Ultra Slim, which is the perfect case for me. Very happy with this one. Even with some effort, I can't find a thing to criticize about it. Great colors, too!

I love this case for my Nexus 10. It's gorgeous and functional as a cover and as a landscape stand. I do wish it would also work as a portrait stand, but that's a minor quibble.
