Galaxy Note 10.1 Case Review
on October 6, 2012
This is a great case for the Galaxy Note 10.1. It is very fitted exactly to the Note's body. The lowest angle is not flat by any means and the picture on the description of this product looks lower than it actually is. With that said, the lowest angle is still great for note taking (which is what I wanted the angle for. The other two grooves (viewing settings) are great for watching at most angles while sitting down and in bed. The case fits the Galaxy Note 10.1 snuggly and there is no fear of the tablet falling out. There are openings for every feature on table (camera, stylus, etc.)
One minor complaint is the locking mechanism on this case is quite snug. I would even go as far as to say tight. Maybe I am just babying my device since it is brand new but it does press pretty hard over the SD Card cover which definitely won't open without coaxing... but that may loosen over time (we will see).
The hard plastic looks like leather and is soft to the touch (not like standard plastic which has a hard exterior). This isn't a con though because it gives it a "luxury/professional" appeal. The grooves on the case seem small but my experience with it is that they are perfect and don't tend to slip when the tablet is inserted into the grooves.
ONE THING TO CONSIDER is when getting a carry bag for the Galaxy Note with this case because most bags will only allow for the tablet. I bought the
"STM Bags iPad Jacket, Laptop Bag, Fits Most 10" Screens, Chocolate/Orange" and found that closing the zipper over the tablet with the case is a little tight. As always it may loosen over time. But if you don't want to worry about that then I suggest getting a carry bag that is bigger than 10.1 (which applies only to the tablet) not including the case, which then adds a few millimeters to the actual measure as a whole. If you don't intend to use the bag then no problem. (I wish I knew this ahead of time so I could've gotten a slightly larger messenger bag for it.)
I definitely RECOMMEND this case for it's multifunctional angles and beautiful design/feel. I love it. You won't go wrong with the case itself. Just make sure you consider it's additional size along with the tablet when thinking of a carrying bag (like a messenger bag to carry the tablet+case in.) If you aren't getting an additional bag then I would even go as far as to say it's perfect (minus the tightness of the locking piece.. but like I said it may loosen over time).
Hope the review helps with your preparation of enjoying your new Galaxy Note 10.1.
