Review – eBay iPad Mini Case

On the 8th of May I bought a rose gold case from eBay for £3.89 and it arrived on the 10th of May. I bought it because I loved the colour (it matches my phone and watch) and it reminded me of a better version of the Apple smart covers. So, what are my thoughts?

71eiiuviupl-_sx425_Well to start with, it is a two-part case. You first put the front on, like any other Smart Cover (like the official Apple ones), and then click the backing on, which also helps keep the magnetically attached front from falling off, and gives the appearance that the case is one piece. The back is slightly transparent, so you can see the Apple logo, and the colour looks great! Especially if you have a silver iPad like I do.

It feels surprisingly high quality for the price. The actual Smart Cover part feels really nice, I feel as if my screen is definitely protected and I have no worries of it slipping about or off and damaging my screen. The back is just a standard plastic clip-on case, so you can’t really go wrong there, but it is a smooth texture and feels very nice. The entire iPad feels protected. Because the case is so thin, my iPad still remains to be a light and portable device, which is great considering the old case made it feel so heavy and bulky, yet I feel as if both cases offered the same amount of protection, and if anything I think this current case feels more high quality, and from memory I think it was a fair bit cheaper! This case probably isn’t the best for travelling with if you’re more worried about it getting damaged in any way just because it is so thin with a magnetic cover, so I wouldn’t recommend this if you’re particularly panicky, but my iPad stays at home the majority of the time (apart from when I go to my boyfriends house and when I brought it to school a couple of times) so I don’t have to worry too much about travelling, but if you are someone to travels with your iPad a lot, you may prefer a bulkier case for that. If you’re someone like me who only takes it with you occasionally and it stays at home the majority of the time, then this case is definitely for you and I’ve seen it available in a variety of colours. I do recommend this case and I think it was a great deal!

Review – iPad Mini

So as a tech lover, and more specifically an Apple tech lover, of course at some stage in my life I had to own an iPad. I got the mini option pre-owned a long time ago but have only recently really started going on it again. More for blogging and photo editing and kinda using it as a little thing to draw with. I wanted an iPad because of the bigger screen and for editing and drawing and reading if I so desired (even though I have a kindle for that!!) and I just find it really fun to use. Since I am a small person I think the iPad Mini is the best option for me, and I honestly think the other iPads are just too big, especially for me, and I have found them in the past to be a little heavy and bulky with a case on. My iPad as of right now has a very worn out flip case, and I definitely need to get that changed, but even with a more bulky case on, it’s not too bad and weighs very little, I really think the Mini is best for portability, and it’ll easily fit in any handbag or schoolbag.

 

1429446_R_Z001AAs a whole this is a really enjoyable device and I feel like I need to be using it more often and I kinda feel bad that I neglected it for so long, but now it is getting the love and use that the little thing deserves. I will most often be using it for reading, YouTube, games and photo editing and maybe occasionally using it for blog posts like I am right now. Yup, to test this device’s capability with WordPress I am typing the review of the iPad Mini on the iPad Mini. I wouldn’t say many people would find an iPad to be a necessity in their lives, but if you feel like you want one and know you’d get a fair bit of use out of it to be worth the money you pay (as these things can be pricey at times) then I highly recommend one, it is a lovely little device with a high variety of uses. Let me know what you think of it if you have one!
