Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: i-BLASON Apple iPad Mini / iPad mini with Retina Display Auto Wake / Sleep Smart Cover Leather Case (Elastic Hand Strap, Multi-Angle, Card Holder) With Bonus Stylus (Multi-Color to Choose From) 3 Year Warranty (Black) (Personal Computers)My honest opinion
1. Build quality and the material used are good.cant complain on that
2. Card slots, they are useful for your business card. You may put it a few for emergency case.
3. White stitches with black PU leather provides a more "business" look
4. You can be sure that your ipad will be safe inside even with a few of drop
5. A bonus stylus pen
6. Auto wake function working as it should
1. I am not sure if it applies to all, but the onenI received doesn't quite snugly fit in the compartment.
2: it's difficult now to access the volume control button
3.the handle? Shouldn't it be outside" unless you want to hold it flapping against the top cover
4. The stand, only 1 position possible. You cannot tilt it to any other angle
5. my feather weight ipad now becomes "bantam" weight

It would appear that the handle is meant to help hold the ipad while it's in use with the cover open, based on what I can see in the pictures.

With regards to your Cons list:
#2: How often do you need to access the volume control? Besides that, with the new feature of being able to slide up from the bottom of your screen, from virtually ANYWHERE in the iPad, you can easily access the volume control and adjust the slider.
#3: Who wants to carry their iPad with the strap over their hand while it's CLOSED? Most people who use this cover and need the strap will want to be carrying it or holding it while it's OPEN, and as such, just where would YOU recommend the strap go in that case?
#4: 75% of the cases on the market today, even those with built-in keyboards, only have one position you can stand the iPad up in for typing. Adding more positions means adding more material, bulk and weight to the iPad case, which you've already complained about in #5, which I'm about to get to.
#5: The weight - are you kidding me? This is one of the lightest iPad cases out there. Shop around. Most weigh between 10 and 12 ounces! Just how light do you think covers should be, while still adding a level of protection to the iPad? Miracles happen, sure - but as far as I know, they aren't making iPad cases out of carbon fiber yet, so I'm pretty sure this is as close to perfect as it gets.
