Ratings & Reviews
I owned an iPad 2 with smart cover for over a year before ordering my iPad Mini. I was very pleased with the smart cover and incl uded one with my iPad Mini order without hesitation.
Unfortunately, it didn't take more than 30 seconds with this new Mini smart cover to decide to return it...
First, it is considerably lighter than the iPad 2's smart cover, which might sound obvious due to the decreased size, but I found it to feel flimsy and thin in comparison to my iPad 2 version.
The real disappointment came when I closed the cover and found that the panels between the hinge and the outer edge magnets just floated above the screen, leaving a floppy 1/4" of space. I confirmed that the placement was correct by ensuring that the edges lined up, and several attempts to resolve by reconnecting the cover were ultimately unsuccessful.
My iPad 2 smart cover never had this issue and all of the iPad Mini photos show it laying perfectly flat, but this seems to be a design oversight. …

I don't like how the case doesn't always set flat on the screen. The middle is always popping up.

Skip the cover and get a case
Just got my new iPad mini and bought this cover with it. I find the cover to be in the way most of the time and the connection to the iPad Mini is weak. First hour I owned it I was showing to a friend who attempted to flip the cover to a stand and in the process the cover detached and the mini fell a short distance to the floor which cracked the screen. Not the cover's fault exactly but it interferes with having a good grip on the device and pulls away from the mini with the slightest pull. The iPad mini is fragile. I've dropped my iPhone a hundred times in the same way with no damage. Spend your money on a cover that will actually provide a good grip and protection in a short fall. …

I own an iPad 2 and loved the smart cover because of how it protected the iPad screen. I am the type of person where I do not like a lot of accessories, "less is more" type of guy.
So when I bought my iPad mini, I immediately bought the smart cover and it only took a couple of minutes for me to decide that is was a poorly design product. It was very light weight and when I laid the cover flat on the iPad mini, part of the cover stood up. There was no way to keep it down.
Luckily apple has a good return policy. I was just really disappointed because I wanted a smart cover but I ended up going to amazon and buying a leather case for my iPad mini for half the price. …
