For most, it may past muster, but for me it was lacking something....I am not sure what, but it felt like it could have been a tad better like a nilken case/quality that I expected.

For those that have the Seidio ledger case, how do you deal with the inconsistency of the auto wake/off? I have a couple of cards in the cover and the flap works like 1 out of 20 tries. What's worse is that when there's pressure on the flap, the screen will sometimes turn on (since it comes in contact with the screen) and that kills my battery.

Do you have a lot of play on your cover? Meaning the holes can misalign real easy or is your ledger have a stiff spine like a new book? I have had all iterations and my last one was stiff as can be. And I had no issues with the cover killing my batt. But I don't put cards in the pocket though.

Yea, the flap works fine if I don't have cards in the pocket. The flap actually comes in contact with the screen and the magnet works just fine. However to me it's kind of the point of the case to put something in the pocket.

...remember the OP says inexpensive flip case. 45 euros isn't exactly affordable.

The inner green thing is rubberized plastic it is durable.. But the cuts on the phone are a hit or miss.. I got one for my n4 and it was snug fit.. But in the n5 the ear phone opening is not coinciding with the phone.. So muffled when I have the flip closed.. The material feels premium..
