The hard shell case has a very slim profile and feels very good in my hand, light, yet strong. It closes securely with an unseen magnetic catch and when opened, turns the Kindle on, a feature that I really like. The cover folds back, maintaining the thin profile, for comfortable one-handed reading. The case also has a nicely designed kickstand, a feature I do not use and which is unimportant to me. The very best feature is the stippled, non-slip exterior that provides a pleasant tactile experience while protecting my new Kindle Paperwhite, critical for a person having a propensity for falling asleep whle reading sitting up in a chair. Already my Fintie case has kept my Kindle damage free after having been dropped at least a half-dozen times on unforgiving ceramic tile floors. Interiors of both front and back covers are sueded and look and feel good, all the while protecting the screen and Kindle body. Design and appearance are very important to me. OK, I am a picky person, but I take very good care of the things that I own and they, in turn, last a long time. Lastly, the Fintie came in what turned out to be a wonderful rosy shade of red. Did I mention that all of my Kindle covers have been red so that I could easily locate my reader in the depths of my very large handbags?
The Fintie Kindle Case arrived in a timely fashion and was well-packaged. It was priced right, is slim, yet light and sturdy,
feels comfortable whether reading with one hand or two, is very well-made and good looking. It performs exactly as promised... even better than. I not only recommend it, I would buy this case again — maybe in another shade of red.
Update: my grand dog, a puppy still, gently took my Kindle off my lap when I had fallen asleep. Later, I found my Kindle with Fintie case on the floor in another room. Hina had done a number on it, chewing the cover of the case,
completely stripping the sueded lining from the inside front cover. Although I found bits of the red case but no lining, she must have swallowed it. The great news is that my Kindle suffered two tiny indentations on the upper left margin. The rest was still in perfect condition after what was at least an hour of teething by a five-month old black Lab puppy. The Fintie case is amazing. I have ordered another exactly like the first, in red. You meed this case if you want your Kindle to be bulletproof—or puppy proof. It is without a doubt the very best Kindle case I've owned. And I have owned many.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, the smartshell is a plastic shell case. If you've ever used a shell case for a smartphone, you've got a mental image of thin, smooth plastic covering the back and sides of the phone, there's not much protection, and the device sets into the shell. That fits how the paperwhite fits into this case. And that's where the comparison ends. This Fintie case is notably thicker plastic, so there's more protection. There's an attached front cover (also plastic) to protect the screen.
Front and back are textured which makes the case look nicer than you'd expect and gives a good grip. Fintie claims this is the thinnest and lightest case for the paperwhite. If that's stretching the point, it's close to right. I'm not noticing a difference in weight and what little additional depth it adds actually makes the Kindle easier to hold. The cover is held closed by a magnet that doubles as a means of putting the Kindle in sleep mode. Both work well. The front cover can be folded back for one handed holding. The magnet doesn't accidentally put the paperwhite in sleep mode when the cover is folded back for reading.
If, for some reason, you need or want to remove the Kindle from the case, starting from the tab where the magnet seems to be the best way to do it. The bottom button and charging port are exposed for access. At $11.99 US, it's only slightly higher than many other cases, three times cheaper than "official" cases, and light years ahead in style and protection. If I got a second paperwhite, I'd also get another Fintie smartshell.
