Cover provides good protection, but isn't a great stand
The cover snugly encloses my iPad Air and provides a good seal between the front flap and the case the whole way around. As you'd The cover snugly encloses my iPad Air and provides a good seal between the front flap and the case the whole way around. As you'd expect, the cutouts line up perfectly and the automatic lock / unlock function also works well.
However, the smart case isn't a great iPad stand. The flap does not provide enough stability for tablet manipulation (typing, launching apps etc) when folded back on itself when standing in the upright, requiring a second hand to support it to prevent it from falling over. Also, in the slightly inclined mode, the strength of the magnet built into the case is insufficient to keep the cover folded back on itself, and as a result the case usually collapses in on itself. Even when it doesn't, the incline is only slightly more angled than horizontal anyway. …

Really nice case...but...
Honestly, the quality of the case itself is great, but it has a design flaw. When the cover is closed, it doesn't lay flat. Beca Honestly, the quality of the case itself is great, but it has a design flaw. When the cover is closed, it doesn't lay flat. Because of the way the hinge material (between the case and cover) was designed to be sturdy, it holds the cover up about 1/16th of an inch. This, in turn, makes the cover not lay flat as the back pane of the cover (nearest the hints) is raised and the other two panels of the cover lay flat. It's significant enough that it's very noticeable when looking at it. …

Great look & feel, but maybe too soft as a stand
This case has a great feel. Nice, soft leather with an even softer interior to protect you iPad Air. Full coverage front and bac This case has a great feel. Nice, soft leather with an even softer interior to protect you iPad Air. Full coverage front and back so no worries about scratching your device. Thin and light so it complements the tablet. The only complaint I have is when the cover is folded and used as a stand, I have to position it just right otherwise the triangular "base" created by the cover collapses and the unit falls backwards. This seems to be because the cover is soft. Perhaps the polyurethane cases will work better since they appear more rigid. …

I liked it when working. Decomposed-broke on me after 10 months
I'm fine with the weird folding system and tolerated how often the thing would just fall over while reading. It works fine for me I'm fine with the weird folding system and tolerated how often the thing would just fall over while reading. It works fine for me. But, I noticed it kept coming loose and then I noticed the right edge had like a broken edge. I never take the iPad out and I'm not an abuser. I take care of my stuff. This thing is not useable as it will not hold the iPad now except completely flat.
I just did a chat with Apple and they told me that cases can be submitted for replacement if not functioning but that my description would not be eligible. Not sure how a case is not functional if it's not holding the iPad as it is designed to do. $80 piece of throw away stuff now. Disappointed in the quality and Apple's response. …
