When it comes to tablets, a case is even more important than for a phone. A phone you can pop in your pocket, and if you look after it, it can survive. A tablet, however, has a bigger screen, and is heavier. This means that tablets require a higher level of protection, and as one can expect there are many options available for all tablets. However, when it comes to protection and practicality, only the best should suffice. One such case is the Snugg Nexus 7 PU Leather Case.
It is made of a special material with a leather finish, and stitched together to give a beautiful finish. The executive and official look it provides means you can proudly show this case off weather you are in a business meeting or travelling. The protection it provides means you can leave it in your backpack while you are running up and down escalators to catch your train or tube.
With the case closed, the beautiful branding is quite obvious, which only makes the case look beautiful. The front has a smart folding option, which means the case can be used to perch the case in both typing mode as well as landscape mode. The back also features a small tab where the case folds into when the case is perched.
The case, like most other tablet cases, also features magnets which mean that the case also serves as a power saving unit, as in it puts the tablet to sleep when the case is closed, and automatically wakes it up when you open the case. This provides the extra feature that you do not have to press the power button when you want to use the tablet, but can just open the case. This is one of my favourite features of such cases.
However, this elastic band on the inside is what really makes this case stand out. This means that you can hold the case by sliding your hand in it, and lets you carry it and use the tablet easily.
Among other features are Velcro based bond system to hold the tablet in a very ‘snug’ fit, and ports for all the holes, such as the speakers, the mics, and the camera as well as power. It also includes a small look to hold a stylus in. This however, is the only thing I can find wrong with the case. The placement of this loop is right in front of the hole for the micro-usb connector, which means you cannot have your stylus in that loop and charge the unit at the same time.
I have used this case for good part of this week, and this has become my regular case for my Nexus. For a discounted price tag of £24.99, this case presents a great value for money. You can find it on TheSnugg.co.uk at the following link:
I have to thank The Snugg for providing me this case for the review.
