Best Case/Cover for the New 2013 Nexus 7
« on: August 19, 2013, 04:29:06 PM »
Ok, folks, so here's where we'd love to hear everyone's experiences and opinions on the best case/cover solution they've found for their new 2nd generation Nexus 7s.  I know there's a lot of popular options out there and you all have tried a bunch of them.  If you've found something you like, please include a link to the case on Amazon so others can buy one.

I bought a Moko case for my 2013. I found the tab that closes the unit is too tight. don't try and bend it like I did, its plastic an breaks

Surprisingly I've actually only bought the one case for my 2013 Nexus 7, I'm a bit of a case addict so have had multiple cases for other services. I think I currently have 6 or 7 for my Nexus 4...

Anyway I bought the Poetic Slimline case in black, absolutely love it. What can I say about it...
It switches the screen on upon opening, fits beautifully and is of nice quality. All for I think around 12 GBP...

I have had one case for all three of my Nexus tablets. Unfortunately, it was never on when I dropped two of them on cement. It has saved me though. It's a cheapy 5 below with lots of patina. I love it when it is on the Nexus. it shows character.

I'm  very happy with http://www.amazon.co.uk/IVSO%C2%AE-Smart-Google-Tablet-Function/dp/B00E7O9M72 for my N7_2013. The auto on/off works perfectly. The hard shell covers all the edges but leaves the ports accessible. The folding cover gives a suitable angle for either typing or viewing.

Getting a little annoyed with the Poetic Slimline... It's leaving smudges on my screen and I have to keep cleaning it. I only used a TPU case on my 2012 N7 and always had to clean the screen on that, thought this case would some that...
