Does the iPad mini with Retina Display Smart Case - (PRODUCT) RED wear easily and does it discolor much?

I am trying to decide what case to get. I would like to get a good strong case that will last a long time and have the smart auto lock/unlock feature. I am debating whether to get a proper iPad mini with Retina Display Smart Case or a fake from eBay.

    My first choice was the black one, but as it was not in stock, I got the red. The (PRODUCT) RED is a beautiful product. I have only been using it for about 2 weeks, and I have not noticed any discolouration or smear of the dye on the screen, as I have had previously with the smart covers on my normal iPad. They do warn on the box that it may happen though, but I think it will give more character.

  • The cases are terrible, I have both the 5S phone case and Ipad air in Red and they are ruined already. The ipad cases suffers from magnetic pickup (the microfibre stains with black rectangle shapes that are very hard to wash off) the edges discolour within days and the leather wears very fast. The phone case, well that's 6 weeks old and looks 6 years months old, its actually falling apart in one corner where I dared to drop it, the colour is wearing off and the thing doesn't stay on the phone that well now I've removed it a couple of times.

    I've spend £110 on cases and they're pap. Come on Apple, you have to do better than this.

  • The color stays true and wears well.
