Scosche Galaxy Tab Leather Case (from TMo Store) - Review
I just picked up the Scosche case from a TMobile store.. I had to hunt around for it, most stores only had the Incipio case. A warning on that one, do not buy the incipio case, the tab that acts as a stand is held in by 2 very tiny plastic nubs and mine broke within 1 hour of owning it.
On to the review!
The case is extremely well built on the inside and outside, the leather is wrapped around a very sturdy frame. The case attaches to the Galaxy Tab at two main points on the top and bottom. It sort of hugs the tab, it feels extremeley secure, and no amount of shaking could free my tab from the case. All of the buttons/ports are open and every corner is cusioned from drops.
The case features a very unique method of standing up, that I find superior to any case I've tried thus far. Because the corners aren't secured to the case, the case can piviot around the device allowing the tab to sit within the grooves on the top cover. This allows it to have 3 levels of orientation, the back groove, the front grove and against the latch. The latter is preferred for typing on the device, as it places the tab at just the right angle. While angled, the device is very secure, and not wobbly at all.
There are two advantages of this case style over other cases.. one the top cover is hidden under the device while in use, and the other is that the angle can be changed, unlike most flip-out tab covers.
Finally, the case closes by 'hugging' the device in much the same way the case grips the device, there is almost no chance the case can come open accidentally.
That's all folks, if you'd like more pictures let me know! I hope this is helpful for anyone looking for a case. Right now I believe it is only available at TMo for $50. I would give it a look before spending $70+ on a similar case.
