I'm not one to leave negative reviews on a product, but I am so disappointed by this case, I feel like I need to warn people about it. I love my new Kindle, but I sincerely hate this case, and I will be returning it.
I purchased this case after having tried a budget, off-brand case for my Kindle, hoping for a thinner profile, a cover that lies flat/flush, and a magnet that effectively triggers the auto sleep-wake function. This case delivered none of those things. The sleep-wake function does not work consistently, the top cover does not lie flush (when closed) or flat (when open), and it nearly doubles the weight and profile of my device, while seemingly leaving the edges of the device nearly exposed. It also leaves my hands inexplicably STICKY after reading. (I'm assuming this is in some way related to the "waterproof coating" that is on the fabric.) This case not worth the $30 I paid for it.
