iPad mini case review: MoKo Slim-Fit Multi-angle Folio Cover Case
November 26, 2012 by Daynah
One of the main reason people purchase the iPad mini is for the size and weight. Sometimes adding a case to protect it may make it feel bulky. But the MoKo Slim-Fit Multi-angle Folio Cover Case for the iPad mini is different. It’s light-weight, protects the important parts of the iPad Mini, and best of all, is quite inexpensive.
To use the case, open the folio and push the iPad mini in securely on the four corners of the case’s interior. The farthest right of the case (or top if in landscape mode) has two holders to keep the iPad Mini securely in. The left side of the case (or bottom in landscape mode) only have one holder on each side so you can remove it easily when viewing in different angles.
Multiple Viewing Angles.
One of the most functional features of this case is the option for viewing your iPad mini in multiple angles. Once you have your iPad Mini in the case, put it in landscape mode and remove the two bottom holders. This will allow your iPad mini to be placed on one of the bevel grooves on the case. There are four viewing angles. The first is perfectly perpendicular. And the last at about a 30 degree angle.
This case conveniently comes with a hand strap on the interior cover which makes it easy to hold when you are doing a presentation or need to show someone something on your device. It puts less strain in your fingers since you are holding it with the palm of your hand. To use, flip the front cover to the back of the iPad mini. Use the rubber thin strap and pull it over the device. This keeps the iPad Mini in place. Then put your hand in the larger strap on the cover. Now your device fits securely in your hand.
Another feature in this case is the addition of a loop on the side. You can fit a stylist there if you use one. The front cover also has the wake up feature. When closed, the iPad Mini will turn off. When open, it will wake up.
Overall, the case is lightweight and protects your iPad Mini from most scratches and bumps. It also protects the front glass display which is the most important part. The case is also versatile, so you can find many ways of using it to fit your needs. There are some drawbacks to consider though. The edges of your iPad Mini are not fully protected. There’s only protection around the corners of the edges. The middle parts are all exposed (but this also means all the ports are easily accessible, so not exactly a bad thing). The cover sometimes doesn’t always closed properly either. There’s a small gap between the screen and the cover. But considering the cost of the case ($6.98 for black), it’s more than well-worth it. The MoKo Slim-Fit Multi-angle Folio Cover Case is available in black, orange, and green.
