3.0 out of 5 stars Nice case, does it's job well but expensive and edges of lid have gone sticky
By Happy Canuck 😊 🍁 ✅ on February 4, 2017
Got this case when I bought my kindle a few years ago now, it's not cheap as cases go but I thought what the heck I'll grab a genuine Amazon one instead of a cheapy.

Colour is great (I got the 'persimmon' one, which is quite a nice bright red/orangey colour), quality of the case is really nice at least to start with, my Kindle paperwhite fits absolutely perfectly - a really nice snug fit, no movement, wobbles or gaps. The sleep/wake works perfectly and it protects my kindle well, and the magnetic closure works nicely. It's well designed.

The case adds a little weight and size to the Kindle, but you get used to it very quickly and for the protection it offers to your device its a fair trade-off. The additional size is minimal as the case fits so well, like a skin. To get the protection this offers you couldn't really have the case much if any thinner. While I haven't tried, my guess is this case will protect your Kindle very well in the event of being dropped from considerable height, it's thick enough and rubbery finished so it certainly should.

It's comfortable to hold, and fairly grippy - the edges of the case body are rubbery for grip and shock absorption. The 'leather' is just glued onto the rubbery plastic body of the case.

So far so good - it's a beautiful, good quality, well fitting case that stood up to my very light use perfectly for about the first year or so...I'd have given it a full 5 stars at that point...

As time has gone on, the edges of the case have degraded a bit and gone sticky...like glue residue or trim starting to peel and leaving sticky residue on the case which ends up on your fingers. I've had little gobs of sticky stuff come off, and stringy threads from the case edges. (Have added some pics to try and show some of this). This seems to get worse in warmer weather, which I guess with glue issues would make sense.

The hinge also shows wear, and a little slackness now - again, I'm a very light user.

My kindle and its case get a very easy life, literally just sits by the bed on the nightstand or in a drawer. The outside of the case has worn ok, shows some signs of wear which is fair enough but it's not being dragged around in a bag or used on the go all the time. It's the stickiness inside the flap that's the annoying bit, it just seems to do it and there's nothing you can do to prevent it from happening really. I've wiped it off but it seems to occur and form again.

Overall nice case, but for the price of it the peeling/stickiness on the flap edge trim is a little disappointing, given the very light use it gets. If it were priced a more realistic $20 I'd recommend it, at $40 it's expensive relative to it's quality. I could've probably bought a $5-$10 one from China and had similar life out of it. I wouldn't buy another at the $40 price honestly.

Hope that helps.
