I bought this case from Moshi's official website the first time when I just got my ipad mini around Christmas 2012. I know Moshi has a good reputation on Apple accessories, that was basically the reason why I chose this case instead of hundreds of other cases on the market. However, after I used it for a few months, I found the back case cracked at the bottom right corner. Well... Since I did nothing to it but I was still nice enough to assume I "accidentally" did something to it so it cracked. Then somebody gave me a $50 amazon gift card so I ordered another replacement one from amazon, right here. I ordered it on April 18th 2013, and today is June 4th 2013, I found it cracked again AT THE EXACT SAME SPOT AND EVEN THE SAME CRACKING PATTERN. I mean... does that mean something to you? Quality, quality, quality... This case is not cheap, it costs $50. At least I expected it to last a little longer than a $10 ebay case. Well, I guess I am wrong. My IPAD 2 has been using a $10 ebay case since two years ago and it's still protecting my IPAD 2.
The seller is nice enough to list there's a one year warranty on this case, so I contacted the seller to see if I can get it exchanged. I was told I have to contact Moshi about it. Alright, let's call Moshi! A girl with such a soft gentle voice from Moshi asked me if I have the original box because there's no other way I can prove this is a Moshi case. Oh well, hmmm , I believe I am a clean person, I take out my garbage everyday. There's no way I am still keeping a box from 2 months ago...let me guess.... I think I am going to buy another $10 case from ebay! :D
- It is thin. The rear cover is hardly noticeable, thanks to its transparency, and the front cover is about the same thickness as the Apple SmartCover.
- It feels great. The rear cover feels much better to hold than the bare mini, providing some much needed grip. I would call the rear cover a hard cover, though it does have sufficient give that I feel like it wouldn't shatter if I dropped it. The front cover is soft with some padding.
- Full protection. Other than cutouts for buttons, jacks and the camera, it provides full protection for the mini when closed.
- Multiple configurations. The versatile origami style cover has a configuration for whatever position you want the mini in. There is a small learning curve with the different folds, but once you've done it a few times, it becomes second nature. And the magnets in the cover are strong enough to hold the cover in whatever position you put it in.
- It stays on. Like I said above, the magnets are great. Until I had this case, I was using an Apple SmartCover and I found it would slide off sometimes when I was just holding it. The cover on this one stays put, whether it is open or closed. And the auto sleep/wake feature works flawlessly.
Overall, I think this is a great cover and I'm probably going to get the larger one for my iPad.
After hearing all the disappointments and compromises made with the Apple Smart Cover, I was definitely looking into alternatives. I was thinking about waiting to see if Apple would at least come out with a Smart Case for the iPad Mini but was very excited to hear Moshi announce this Origami Case for the Mini size. I recently received this as a Christmas present in blue, and this outshines a lot of the competition I've seen.
The cover itself works just as well as the Smart Cover with no worries about slippage or precarious folds. The unique folds on the Origami Case provide four varied configurations that feel very sturdy and supported in each postion. My favorite position is the portrait configuration, which I have not seen in other cases/covers. It's perfect for reading and really helped sell me on this case. I would agree there is a bit of a learning curve but it's pretty simple once you get it down once or twice. The material itself is suede and feels soft to the touch. The auto sleep/wake feature works very well and is not hindered if the cover doesn't completely lay flat after being folded in a position for a prolonged period of time. Since you will primarily be folding the cover into a triangle position, the middle of the cover can rise up a little bit, but it quickly flattens out. I have not had an issue with keeping the cover flush with the screen, and the magnets at both the top and the bottom of the screen help as well.
The plastic casing feels pretty good in the hand.Read more ›

Worked pretty well for a while. Now a year later the plastic case is cracked around the edges/corners and doesn't hold the iPad securely anymore. I'm shopping for a new case now.Published 1 month ago by S. Martin
The back is hard plastic and slides when on hard surfaces so the iPad won't stay in position. Cleaver idea on the "origami" style folding. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kurt

Great case. Though, instead of one central magnet to keep the cover open on the back I would put one in each corner, so that when you have the case open, the cover is more... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Chris Johnson
