I’m as surprised as anyone to feel this way, and truth be told I’m only about 9 hours in to having the iPad2 and 6 of those hours I was sleeping, but so far I’m not loving the new case.
It’s far clunkier than I thought it would be and not nearly as intuitive. I find it a little difficult sometimes to get in the right setting depending on how I want to prop it up. Not hard, mind you, I know how to use it, but my perception from videos/commercials I’ve seen was that it would be amazingly simple to use.
And I don’t like having it on the iPad when I’m holding it and using it, it sticks out too far on the unhinged side and feels like it might snap off. It also obviously won’t protect the back of the device. Actually it probably won’t protect much at all. Pretty sure if I drop this thing it will snap right off. But I’m not going to test that one.
Maybe I felt compelled to write this because I’m always such an Apple Fanboy that I need to show I’m actually more unbiased than you’d think when reviewing their products. Or maybe it’s because I’m a huge Case-Mate fan and want to see what they come up with. But mainly because I was really excited about this case and want to know if anyone else has had the same underwhelming experience.
