This is a review for the Poetic Slimline Case for our Nexus 7.

I've been using this case for a little over a month now, and thought I should fill you guys in. Until now, there are mostly only those hideous, ghetto leather cases that cover up the bezel of the Nexus 7. The Nexus 7 is such a beautiful device that we ought to show off all of it aspects. The case is thin, it adds minimal bulk and is still easy to hold in one hand. It IS a smartcover, meaning there's a little magnet in the flap that power's the screen on/off when you open or close it. And in the end what really matters is that the case really looks good on the Nexus 7. If you don't care about pictures then here is the rundown: smartcover, 2 viewing angles, durable, slim, and completely worth the $20 price!

Aesthetics and Features: (Pictures shown in order)
  • Microfiber interior lining (prevents the Nexus 7 from getting scratched, as well as keeping the screen free of major smudges).
  • Flap is secured shut by magnets on the outer edge (circled in red)
  • NOT Leather (it's made of PU which imitates the look of leather but feels much closer to what the back of the Nexus 7 feels like)
  • Recessed (not cut outs) buttons, this allows for much easier access to the vital buttons.
  • Cutouts for both mic's, headphone jack, microUSB port and Speakers (seen above)

Versatility: (Pictures shown in order)
  • The flap folds back completely (great for holding with one hand)

  • 2 viewing angles (one suited for typing and the other more suited for viewing media

Can be purchased directly from the manufacturer: Poetic - $39.95

Thank you very much for this detailed review. I'm seriously contemplating purchasing this now.

Edit: I ordered the case from UK Amazon.

It came up when I searched for android decal on Amazon.

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o04_s00_i00

They come in a few more colors, but you'll have to look around for them.

+1 on this, I got a cheap "slim" ebay case for now, but the poetic one looks like the case I've been looking for a while now.
