Customer Review

Just got this case for my Nexus 7, 2013. I was not expecting to get a high quality product for Web Search a low price. It fits really good to holds the tablet in place. The status option offers 3 different positions, REALLY USEFUL When Skyping or watching videos. The hand strap Proves to be mobile, but be careful! You have to hold your tablet with your thumb to avoid it from falling! Once you get your case you'll understand what I mean.

The material used are really good and the PU leather gives a nice touch. The case Seems elegant and feels good quality.

The auto-sleep function works flawlessly! And the additional screen cover is a nice plus. I've not used it yet since the tablet has Gorilla Glass and I am Usually really carefully.

Now, the not so good ...

So I own a Nexus 5. Both the tablet and the phone are Qi-capable charging. I have a couple of chargers in my home and office, so I just leave the tablet there and the charger does its wireless magic. HOWEVER, this case is a little to thick and the material used in the back interferes with the Qi charger, meaning did the tablet will not charge When put on the charger.

It May Be That my charger is not strong enough. I am using a El Cheapo 8 charger from EBay. Maybe using the original Nexus Qi charger Could solve the problem. HOWEVER, be aware if you so use this kind of chargers Because this case may render them useless.

In the other hand, the clip holds the deed fold cover closed is way to tight. I had to bend mine a little bit to be able to open the fold easily. Not a dealbreaker, but there may be some room for improvement.

Overall, I would gibe 5 stars, but due to the problem with the charger and the fold tight clip I am giving it 4 Still, I recommend it!


After a couple of days, I Realized That the QI chargers DO work, but it is difficult to find the sweet spot where the charger starts working.

Update 17/09/2014

I've had the case for 2 weeks now. I am still really happy with it. I am not using the QI charger any longer, getting it to work with this case takes just too long. The only downside now Is that the clip holds the deed fold cover in place is starting to damage the exterior of the tablet. As I Mentioned Previously, it is way too thigh And When closing it it rubs the tablet and scratches it. I have to be careful When Opening / Closing the case to prevent any other damage to the tablet.
