    I like it

    • Written by from Troy

    I have had the iPad mini retina with this case and the Smart Cover for 1 month so far and use it heavily at home and at work. I really like the combination. I like the fact that when the Smart Cover is open it sticks to the case and is not dangling around. I have not had issues with the magnet in the back of the case as the previous reviewer. The reason I don't give it 5 stars is the dirt accumulation below the case, but I guess it is something that comes with this type of case (I have one similar by incase in my iPhone and it also accumulates dirt, but it is minimal though. I believe it is a good alternative, and looks far nicer, to the smart case.

    TWO SPECK SMARTSHELL CASES IN TWO WEEKS

    • Written by from San Francisco

    For the first two weeks, this case was practically perfect in all the ways I was hoping for with a case. Ive purchased probably close to 20 different cases for my ipad mini since the mini and now retina have debuted. The magnet on the back of the case fits perfectly with the smart cover. However less than two weeks later, the magnet (which mustve been glued with a cheap bottle of elmer's peeled off.

    Poof, gone! And now no way to close the case with both a smart cover attached magentically to the speckcase and frankly the plastic is poorly made and just cheap.
