Delivery: Super fast
Packaging: Not protective enough. I received the cover with the metal part a little bit bent!
Fast communication. Good return and exchange policy.
*Now the item:
Newsflash "THIS IS NOT A GENUINE COVER"!. I have the Apple's one and these are the difference (I'll post photos soon).
-Packaging: Compared to the original one, this one has a protective clear film on the leather part. In the inner part, you'll find a cutout of the iPad screen.
-leather Part: Original cover have a smooth & soft feel. The color is "brownish black" front and black in back with clean cut. This one looks like it was cut out from a black shoe with dark gray back. It's "cheap shiny" and stiff. It feels ok but it doesn't take you more than a minute to feel that this is not the work of Apple!
-Metal Part: Finishing is almost perfect but it's not. You can see some darker spot if you look harder. Also, the rubber pieced placed are not cleanly cut (compared to original) and the middle one is not well placed in the allocated space.
-Built and balance: This one will stick perfectly on the screen from the first time. You have to adjust or pull it cover the edge.
-Strength of magnet: Weaker than the weak original!! Now I know why couple of reviewers were taking about falling iPads!
-Imprinted information: This one has faded black serial# on the metal part while it's shiny black on the original. Another thing, the statement "Designed by Apple in California..etc" is printed in white at the back on this one but ENGRAVED in the original one.
I hope this information helps. I should've known better when I saw the difference of the price (was 54.95 and seller was GSASTORE). My advice, get it from Apple store directly and don't make my mistake. I See here the price and seller are different !!
P.S. bear with my English, I'm not native :)
Here's what we found:
The real Apple Smart Cover smells like leather. The fake does not - because it's not real leather.
Imprinted on the inside of the genuine cover is "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China." The fake does not have this.
The magnet on the fake cover was coming out of the metal piece.
Apple packages their polyurethane and leather covers in different boxes - same size, though different picture. The seller packaged the fake leather cover in a box meant for a polyurethane cover.
Glad I went to the Apple store. Had the seller done a better job packaging the cover I probably would have been duped. It's upsetting that the seller believes consumers are foolish enough to accept not only fake products, but products that arrive in used boxes.
$53.95 is a lot of money to spend on something that is advertised as a genuine product when in reality it is not. Please do not give this seller your money!
Amazon should remove this item/seller and report to Apple.
I received the product and it was stuffed into an Amazon box smaller than the product and the Apple box the product comes in. The cover and it's box was bent to fit into the Amazon box. The Apple box was clearly opened before (probably to take out the real cover and put in a fake).
The cover I received is also not leather. I compared it to an actual smart cover purchased at Apple and this product is thinner and the felt is different on the inside. The text on the inside that says "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China" is printed in black. On a real cover it is embossed into the cover.
