Default E-Cell Luxury Protective Leather Case [Review]

So I've just received the case today and here is my mini review. I apologise for the blurry photo's lol

First I will point out that I'm not sure whether it is real leather or not, it smells similar but is quite faint - I'd say that is isn't real. Either way I'm not fussed as it was 8.95 and it still looks and feels nice.

Some pictures of how it came and what it looks like without the Nexus 7 in.















It was very easy to get the Nexus 7 into the case, first I put the right side into the case and gently pushed on the left and it popped straight in. defiantly feels secure.





It fits really well and the front flap will protect the screen from any hard objects,



As you can see all the ports are exposed, even the microphones have cut outs.



You can see the speaker has a cut out, I haven't noticed any difference in volume.



If you try to fold the flap behind the device you end up with this, which could be good for typing on the keyboard in landscape. Although if you place pressure on it you can hold it fine in portrait mode.



The case is very stable in the 'stand' mode and you can angle it to how you want.



Overall I am very happy with the case and I feel that it will defiantly protect the Nexus 7 so I won't really have to worry as much as it being 'naked'.

It also features the magnet sleep sensor function!

Looks: 8/10
Protection: 7/10
Build Quality: 7/10
Price: 8/10

Any questions just ask!

I've just purchased the E-Cell Luxury Protective Leather Case in Black, once I get it I'll post up a small review on it.

It looks pretty nice and it's what I was after as I don't really want a bulky case that covers the whole device, I've also purchased gloss and matte screen protectors.

Does anyone here have this already? or has ordered one too?

I'll update this with a review once I get it.

"Made of high quality leather..."

I wonder if it's real leather?

Hmm, how would I tell for sure whether it is real or not? Other than smelling it lol

From the feel of the material I guess, and......from the smell!

At 8.95 it's not likely to be real leather but you might be lucky

That said the auction details are pretty specific about saying it is so...

I couldn't see it, but does it feature a smart cover? AKA magnets? Look nice though.
