I Could NOT get my Kindle to stay locked in the cover! I tried for an hour to get the thing to stay, but it's like the magnets in the cover are in backwards and they are actually REPELLING the Kindle! There is no way I can use this.
Also, disappointed with the fact the "origami" back flap would not stay closed with the Kindle in the case (if I could get it to stay!) It just lays over the screen with NO edge protection. Also, with the back flap having no locking feature I would be hesitant to put this in anything like a backpack that contains binders or anything metal. The magnets in the Oragami folding back will draw to and catch any metal in the backpack, exposing the screen to scratches and other possible damage.
Even if I could get the Kindle to lock into the case, it is too heavy to hold for any length of time, and while the "oragami" is neat to look at, it takes a couple of tries to get it right.
I'm going to look for another style to protect my new "toy"!
The origami stand is sufficiently sturdy in both landscape and portrait modes, it doesn't wobble and would have to be bumped fairly hard to knock it over. The case does NOT weigh as much or more than the HDX, contrary to what some reviewers claim. The HDX weighs in at just over 13 ounces, while the case is 10.9 ounces. Perhaps a tad heavy, but you don't want one that's too light and flimsy either. The weight is definitely not a deal breaker for me personally.
The only important area where this case comes up short IMHO is drop protection. If the front cover was open and I dropped it on a hard surface, I' m pretty sure my HDX would be toast. If you're the clumsy type that frequently drops your phone etc., you might want to opt for another case. However, you could do like me and buy the 2-year extended warranty for the HDX, which covers accidental breakage. I also avoid using the device over hard surfaces whenever possible.
Overall, it's a good case, but I am deducting one star for the dubious drop protection.
The new Kindle Fir Case feels more robust and is definitely heavier than the previous Roocase. Both use magnets to form it's configurations. The new Fire case folds in to stand kind of strangely and the when trying to fold it inwards the magnets don't always connect. I fold that folding the screen inside out seems to reactivate the magnets so they connect fine, but this is kind of an annoyance. I never had any magnet issues ith the previous Roocase.
When connected properly it's very firm and secure. Closing the case does put the Kindle Fire to sleep which is good. I like the button placement on the cover for power and volume and they work fine. As a whole I would recommend the case if you can deal with the few flaws the case has.
And I'm glad I did.
It works. It protects my kindle when I stuff it in my handbag, or when my dog comes to sniff it out once I lay it down on the coffee table, it functions to perfection when I use it to stand the kindle up on the table to read (I confess, I love to read when I eat dinner), or when I'm working on a complex knitting pattern and need to make sure that I don't loose the line in my chart. It looks already a bit used and banged up on the outside - best indicator for it working the way it's supposed to. My kindle is still in the condition it was in when I got it.
It's now a bit over two years that I bought this. It still works and it looks even a bit more banged up. The kindle has fallen multiple times, I have arthritis and sometimes my hands fail me, but it was well protected in this case. It also works well when I want the kindle to stand upright but don't want to hold it, like when I'm watching a movie on Prime or Netflix. I'm roundabout satisfied with this product, I'm glad I bought it together with the kindle.
Dislikes: a) the weight -- it's too heavy, b) distrust that the device is protected from a fall or major knock due to the hardness of the case, and the device being held in place solely with magnets,
I think for business travel I would not use it and instead use the Fente soft case -- but it is insane that Amazon hard-coded the camera mode to assume use of the Origami case. With other cases, the device insists you need to slide it up (away from the single magnet that auto-powers the device on/off on open/shut of the case and holds the case shut. Since you can't slide it out of these other "pocket" style cases -- you are stuck with an big ugly message box in the center of the screen telling you to slide the device up to use the camera. C'mon Amazon that's really lame!
But, it weighs 80% of the weight of the Kindle Fire HDX itself, almost doubling the weight of a nice and light piece of technology. Quite inconvenient when carrying it in a pack or trying to hold it upright in bed at night after a long day.
It does provide a good margin of protection, and its non-slip outer shell is nice. The Kindle can be removed easily for use without the extra weight.
I know that the design of stuff like this is always a trade-off between weight, function, and cost, but Amazon needs to get the weight of its covers down.
If not for the weight, I'd give this a five-star rating.
If your going to use the Kindle to watch a lot of movies or read at a table, I suggest it. But to carry, hold or use any other time it is too heavy for extended use, like reading in bed.
It has buttons for the power and volume and the slide-up feature for the camera is nice (though doesn't work if the Kindle wasn't unlocked). The magnets are strong that hold the Kindle and the origami folds and I think overall the case offers great protection, it just is 5 ounces too heavy.
Edit: I am returning this for the Poetic Slimline Case, its shipping weight is more then half this item's actual weight so I think I'll be happier. Thank goodness the packaging was easy to open, it's easy to put back together too!
I had assumed the only difference between the Kindle I bought (previous one) on discount and the new ones was a slight bump in speed and graphic performance. The latest Kindles also have a slightly wider cover-strip version of this case that allows a Kindle-specific wireless keyboard to be carried inside the cover. While the slightly older Kindle can use the keyboard, the cover will not enfold or attract the keyboard. The form factor being identical, though, still makes it a good combination.
I use the case for viewing movies and youtube (via the free SuperTube app) and streaming music through bluetooth, but when I'm reading a magazine or book, or surfing the net or checking email, I pop it out of the case and just hold the tablet...my wrist (and my face) thanks me (I dropped the tablet on my face while in bed).
If they are available in a big box store near you, I suggest you go and see what they feel like together PRIOR to purchasing. I'm okay with it because it was a gift and I just really appreciated the gesture of a co-worker...but if this was my money, I'd want something lighter that I kept on all the time.
I wonder how long it will hold up to being bent that way?
I t does work but I much prefer to use it as a cover rather than a stand. I hate trying to type vertically so that's about it. It does what it says it will do and very well.
A word to the wise. It is VERY easy to turn on your device without knowing it with this case in place. Not a real problem but something to be aware of.
HOWEVER. I find that the stand feature only works reliably in portrait (vertical) mode. I've tried using it horizontally but the case kept collapsing. I also find it rather difficult to slide the Kindle up to use the camera function. I had to remove my device from the case to take a photo, but perhaps I just need more practice on that. I also wish it came in more colors...
