Royal Purple Kindle Case

 on 12 February 2017
By Jess
Very nice case. It feels well made, and I love the Royal Purple colour (be warned though, it’s not as brightly coloured as in the picture, see photos attached). I bought it with my Kindle, so it has been protecting my Kindle all the time. I have only give 4 stars, as I feel it would have been useful to have some sort of clip / latch, or a band attached to keep it closed.

although a bit feminine due to the metal design element thing that looks like a clasp

Well-stitched and glued. Precisely cut. It looks really neat, although a bit feminine due to the metal design element thing that looks like a clasp. I didn’t like that there is the possibility of the metal scraping against other things in your bag such as a laptop. It may be playing a magnetic role (since the Kindle can auto-switch-off when the case is closed) but nevertheless I wasn’t happy about the outer metal bit. The inside of the case is nice too, the inner cloth glue to the leather feels great. The cover is about 2mm thick, but it is slightly flexible, so don’t assume that too much pressure can be applied to it, because it will eventually touch the Kindle screen if pressed hard enough at one spot (very easy to do with your thumb, since only a few mm of flex is needed). In a bag against flat surfaces it should be alright, but then that annoying metal thing could scrape your other surfaces as mentioned.

Beautifully simple and elegant, works well

This is a lovely blue colour, and is pleasant to hold and use. It grips the Kindle all round, and fits like a glove. The front cover folds out and in just like a book cover, and fastens closed with a magnet. When it closes, it puts the Kindle to sleep. When it opens, it wakes the Kindle up. It does the job perfectly, and I’m glad I bought it.

So much nicer than the smooth covers of old

With the order of my third kindle, I of course bought my third genuine Amazon cover. While they are expensive (covered in countless reviews) they are 100% worth the outlay in my opinion as the quality if second to none.

Same no stand

 on 10 July 2018
By ChrisR
Ordered and arrived on time. Also the item was well packaged and it is a lovely case. The Kindle Paperwhite fitted perfectly (as you would expect) BUT and it became a big BUT for me – there was no stand so when reading you had to hold the Kindle all the time or find something to prop it up with (I know – like a proper book but holding a book is different). In the end I replaced it with a cover that allows you to stand the reader up. As far as the case and fit are concerned the Kindle case was better but a pain to hold. If Amazon could make this cover with a stand it would be perfect.

Nice and cozy

Very nice item, good tactile feel, fits the device snuggly. My only grip is that it would have been nice to be able to lock the front somehow, like an old school diary, rather than the pretty weak magnet that’s in it, as it often comes apart in my bag, exposing the screen to things like my house keys. But it is not a deal breaker, i would still recommend the item.

Great case for the Kindle Paperwhite,

This case fits the Kindle Paperwhite, as you would expect, like a glove. The paperwhite snaps into the case and requires a bit of determination to remove it, keeping your prized e-reader safe and secure within its protective shell.

Buy this case!

Lovely pink colour, made from leather, opens like a book and fits the Kindle Paperwhite perfectly. Why are you still reading this review, when you should be buying this case? This protected my Kindle Paperwhite perfectly for many years, until sadly I decided to upgrade to the Kindle Voyage. I love my new Kindle but unfortunately Amazon haven’t made this style of case to fit that make of Kindle, it’s the Origami or cheap makes of lesser quality from other brands. How hard is it to replicate a good case design for all your products Amazon?

Fits my new Paperwhite Kindle perfectly, but then as it’s built by Amazon it should do!
