The Samsung cover could only be used as a stand in a single, low position that I hated. Because the Moko has a stronger magnet, it can be used in either a mostly flat or a mostly upright position.
One problem with these book covers is that they make the rear camera challenging to use (I use this tablet at work as well as home, so I like the rear camera for documenting things or capturing whiteboard contents). Again, because the Moko has a stronger magnet, it's easier to fold the cover out of the way when you're trying to use the camera. In fact, you can even use the folded cover as another place to hold the tablet when taking a picture.
This cover does not have the little cut out for the speaker on the GSM models, but it doesn't sound like that model is coming to the US anyway.
As mentioned in my response to a question in the comments section, this cover does properly trigger the sleep/wake function, but I've never had it accidentally put the tablet to sleep. This was a constant problem with 3rd party accessories for my previous tablet.
Two minor gripes:
- There was a plastic sheeting on the little chrome name plate. This was attached underneath the nameplate and didn't come off cleanly (it stretches before ripping), so it left some small bits of ugly plastic sticking out. A careful session with a very sharp razor blade and a steady hand fixed that. Hopefully I didn't manage to actually cut through any of the vinyl.Read more ›
-It is ULTRA slim as advertised
-It fits the GN8 perfectly
-Its actually a smart cover (automatically wakes and sleeps the device)
-Does not add any bulkiness to the GN8, so the device and nice and slim
-Tri-Folds so you can watch/read things in landscape on a flat surface.
-You can't simply flip the cover open all the way.
For example: I do a lot of reading on my GN8, when I have this case on it, I can't just flip case to hold the GN8 on my hands. The case is soft, its shifts a bit in the position, and doesn't "fit" correctly.
The only option is to use the Tri-fold and grab hold of that with one hand, which becomes uncomfortable with long periods of time reading.
-Almost no protection is provided
This case is SUPER slim, which means, it will provide almost no protection of any "accidents". So the only time I use it, is when I'm at home. I use a padded cover for the device if I'm taking it outside, because I can't trust that this case can do any protection at all.
Would I recommend this?
That would depend, if you are planning on using your GN8 indoors, and not going to do a lot of reading or writing on it, which would allow you to "hold" the device with one hand for long periods of time, then yes.
If you are going to be using your GN8 constantly, with lots of reading/writing, using it outdoors, or have to hold the device for long periods of time, then no.
I would recommend to get a padded case with slip for one handed use, because this will not do that.
I do not appreciate the durability of the product. The first indicator came the first time i took my tablet out of the case during it's initial installation. There are 4 corner plastic pieces that do the actual "holding" of the device in this case. The lower left plastic corner had a 3/8 inch piece chip off of the corner. This did not affect the efficacy of the case's grip on the tablet so I thought it could have been because of something I had done while taking it in and out of the case.
The second problem has come just 5 months after I purchased this tablet case. The case is held closed by two small magnets on the open side of the case. They measure 3/8" x 1/32" and there are 2 of them. The first magnet came out and stuck to the metal tab that the magnets are supposed to cling to keep the tablet closed. I noticed it by feeling it when my finger passed over what should have been a smooth metal tab and it was thankfully stuck to the tab so I could put it back. This fix didn't last long and before i could permanently re-attach it to the case i lost it.Read more ›

It's done a pretty good job over the last year. I haven't dropped my tablet, but I do carry it in my shoulder bag and I've had to super glue cracks in the plastic on the case. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Davis
