Also, one concern I had was whether the corners would extend above the screen. They don't. They're perfectly flush with the screen (it grips on the chamfered sides), making it easy to wipe off the screen and doesn't interfere with the Smart Cover.
1) Absolutely perfect, glove-like fit as the four corners snap snugly but easily into place. Flawless alignment of various slots and holes with iPad Mini functions.
2) Adds no bulk and near zero weight to the iPad Mini while still providing superior scratch protection.
3) Totally seamless integration with the Smart Cover, which functions as well and exactly the same as it does without the Poetic back cover. And neither cover interferes with removal or attachment of the other.
4) High quality plastic with superb clarity, so the iPad still looks "naked," plus this case haa a good feel in the hand.
Bottom line: if you're a Smart Cover user looking for perfect back case protection that adds almost nothing to your Mini, then your search ends here and for far less money than you might have imagined.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review and I hope you found it helpful in making a buying decision.
But this ThinShell is perfect and for the price, really can't be beat if you own a smart cover. It's thinner than the Switcheasy Coverbuddy and feels less bulky. The Coverbuddy covers all the buttons, making them hard to press a little bit. Some people like this feature so it's subjective. The ThinShell leaves the buttons exposed for easy access and works perfectly with my SmartCover. It's a hard cover so I doubt it offers much in terms of drop protection but it does make the Mini a little "grippier" making it easier to hold IMO. It's exactly what I wanted.
I tried several other cover combos, but this is my favorite for several reasons:
First, it goes on over the Smart Cover magnetic strip, actually securing it much better than the magnet strip alone (you actually have to remove the shell to remove the Smart Cover).
Second, since it secures the Smart Cover so well, it allows it to function much more like the full sized ipad Smart Cover. Note that he shell, though, is thick enough that the magnetic Smart Cover will no longer stick to the back.
Third, this shell has a great feel, kind of rubbery, but very soft and smooth. I combined the red with the grey Smart Cover and, being in OSU Buckeye territory, have gotten rave reviews.
This is the thinnest and lightest way to fully protect the iPad mini and I love it.
