How's your leather smart cover now?
I am thinking of getting the leather smart cover cause i really like red and navy blue color but the price tag is the only thing that keep me thinking wether or not it's gonna be worth it.
I just want to know, how's your leather smart cover condition right now after a lot of use? still in good condition? anything you didn't expect happened to it?
I saw a youtube video comparing the smart cover and the leather is in a pretty bad condition. I'll post the link down below.
Do you think i should just get one or go for the poly??

I bought a used tan leather smart cover off of eBay. No way would I ever pay $70 to get one new. So far it has held up, but I do know that it won't last as long as a polyurethane one. Mine is not like in the video though - Not even close to that bad.

I tried the smart case but i dont like it all. Although it has red color option, which i love so much, but the case itself isnt that great to hold and the cover feels weaker than smart cover. I dont think it worth your money. I would rather go with smart dover + back case, which feels much more sturdy IMO.
I really want the leather but it seems like it wont last as long as polyurethene

@iFan2012 I've been using the smart case for the last few days and don't like it at all:
- The magnet isn't strong enough to keep the cover in place. If you turn the iPad upside town it'll come loose.
- It adds even more of a bezel around the iPad. Makes the screen look smaller and leaves an unfinished edge showing...looks kind of cheap.
- The size it adds makes it difficult if not impossible to put the iPad into a sleeve (unless you get an oversized one) if you use one to carry it around.
It just doesn't feel like a typical OEM Apple product and worth what they're charging for it.

I asked one of the apple guy about it and all he said was "This case was released because a lot of people complained about smart cover not covering the back of the iPad."
Im pretty sure if Steve is still around, this case would not be in store at all, it's so not apple to be honest. I still orefer the smart cover overall

I'd suggest checking out the smart case in person first, preferably with an iPad in it, and deciding whether or not it's for you. There are other products that offer similar protection (ie. Speck Pixelskin) for about the same price or for just a few bucks more, but look and feel like a better quality case.

As i mentioned earlier, i was interested in red and had a chance to play around with it. But after a while there was a noticeable dirts on the cover and i dint really like it. I guess black would do
