Default Review: MoKo Slim Folding Case

Moko Slim Folding Case

Pros:

1. Case fits well.
2. No part of the screen is obscured by the case.
3. All ports, buttons are accessible with case on, with exception of SD Card slot.
4. Works with Quick Cover feature of GPad.
5. Magnetic closure is strong enough to hold the cover closed with any normal handling
6. Elastic strap can be used to secure cover closed or open.
7. Landscape mode stand position is very stable.

Cons:

1. Only one standing position in landscape mode.
2. No standing position in portrait mode.
3. Hand strap is tight if you have a large hand. This may loosen up with use.
4. SD Card slot is difficult to get to with case on.

I see these as features, you may not.

1. When the case is open and held in portrait mode the case can be folded so that there is about 1/2 inch sticking out from the edge. I find myself using this to hold the tablet.
2. The power button and volume control are accessible, but are recessed a bit. For me this means I don't accidentally hit them when holding the tablet.

Note: The pictures displayed with the case at Amazon on 12/13/13 are accurate.

Thanks for the review. In my opinion the case is flat out ugly but everyone has different preferences for what they like their tablets it so am glad you like it.

Plus there are so few cases out, I'm handling my tablet like it is made out of eggshells until the case comes in.


I prefer the thin cases, Moko does a great one for the Tab 3 8.0, very IPad Mini style.

That is what I was looking for with the LG (so far only the VOIA seems to fit and it cost me $50 shipped, way too much for an aftermarket case).

Asuxtek is supposed to have one out on Amazon.ca but the pic for it is wrong so no way to know what it really looks like.

. . . . .
I have been using the cover since December and it has not gotten any prettier , but it does a great job protecting the tablet and I still like it . I haven't looked for anything to replace it.
