Overall, I'm really happy with this cover. I think the price is perhaps a little higher than it should be, but that's what you get with an OEM.
My two biggest concerns are the case closure (of which there isn't one) and the ill fitting nature of the thing. Starting with the later, the case doesn't seem to fit right. It's as if the kindle needs to be pressed further into the body of the case because it leaves a good 1/8" unprotected. And if you plan to put your kindle into a handbag or messenger, the screen could easily be scratched due to the fact that the screen cover has no way of staying in place. (Before anyone asks, this is the correct case for the correct kindle. They were purchased in conjunction as a bundle).
All in all I would give this case a 2/5. For sitting at home and reading it is comfortable and doesn't add bulk. But if I want to venture out with my Kindle, I am going to need better coverage (pun very much intended). I love the color choices and simplicity. But it just needs more substance.
1) Cheap, flimsy material. The cover feels like it could just rip off like a piece of cardboard.
2) Doesn't even "fit" the kindle. I figured it would snap in and be snug. No, it just half fits it (and that is as far as it goes).
3) Price. Seriously Amazon. Throw this up there on your list of flops like Drone delivery, the Fire Phone, and this POS.
Sorry for the rant. This is my first ever Amazon review and Amazon is my lifeline living overseas. But, this product is just utter garbage.
Does it fit? Yes, no problems there. A little firm pressure and it popped into place.
No closure? Well, no there isn't one. But as you can see in the photo, I manage with two inexpensive Velcro cable ties. Quick, easy-on, easy-off.
Apart from that, it does the job and looks nice. That's about all I expected.
As far as covers go, this cover looks fine. Though at 30 bucks.... it's too pricey for what it does, in my opinion, so knocked off 2 stars for that. At 30 bucks, I'd would have expected some shock proofing or something. This covers only real purpose is to keep the screen from getting scratched, don't expect it to do anything more than that. So negative one star for the price, and another for no shock proof for that price....
Ended up buying the 15 dollar Onoton cover which I'm satisfied with it. Pretty much the same exact thing, except the word Onoton is on the inside flap instead of Amazon.
