Inateck iPad Mini Ultra Slim Smart Case

The Ultra Slim Smart Case from Inateck is a folio style case for the iPad mini 1, 2 & 3. It features a hard plastic rear shell and a faux leather front cover which is permanently attached. It isn't the slimmest of folio cases as that black plastic back adds an extra couple of mm's but in truth it is around the same size as the official smart case and weighs in at 159g.

The rear shell wraps around the sides ensuring good protection. The case features all the requisite openings for access to lightning connector, speakers, microphones, lock switch, volume buttons, camera, headphone port & power button.

The front cover is a synthetic leather material with a soft, interior lining and this sits on top of the screen. This cover is reinforced to offer protection to the screen and is constructed from 3 sections which allows it to fold up to act as a stand in exactly the same way as the official Apple case. This means only landscape orientation is supported but allows a steep angle for viewing or lower down when using the onscreen keyboard. The cover also supports auto sleep/wake if you have this enabled in settings and this worked perfectly every time.

While this doesn't offer the same protection as a full on rugged case, it is definitely a low cost way to add good protection for your iPad mini. This style of case is in abundance from a variety of stores but the subtle branding and packaging make this feel a more attractive purchase.

I got this from http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B010DDV5SY
