Case or cover suggestions?
It is a very nice case and uses the auto on/off via magnet in the case well.
However it makes the Nexus 7 so damn thick and opens awkwardly. I will use this case until the official ASUS case is released and then hope that their case is a better fit for this small form factor.
Hope this helps.
When you say "official" case what do you mean? Isn't the one they are selling in the Google Play store the "official" case? I've heard they are likely to offer it in different colors but hadn't heard anything about other styles yet.
The one on the play store (the one I refereed to as the official case) https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Nexu...?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDExMSwiZGV2aWNlLW5leHVzXzdfY292ZXIiXQ..
is not yet available....if it uses the smart cover, i think this may be the way to go, because it looks like it will keep the slim form factor. My case makes my tablet over an inch thick - which defeats the purpose.
I think I will sell this case if someone can come up with a non-bulky, light case.
To answer your question, no, it does not have a smart cover feature. I can post pics somewhere to show you the thickness. Not sure how images are handled here..
Another problem with this case is that it covers the side buttons and has its own rubberized ones sticking out. They're kind of mushy. Makes you unsure when you have successfully hit the volume buttons.
Does this case have the wake/sleep function? It looks like it's probably too thin to house the magnet but I could be wrong.
I don't think the button thing would bother me too much but I certainly see what you mean. My cell phone case is similar to that and it's something I think I'd get used to quickly.
I just got my case from Amazon today. Seems to fit well and all ports/buttons are accessible. Haven't spent much time with it so it remains to be seen how I like it overall. But so far for $9 I can't really complain!
