[Official] Best iPad Mini CaseOriginally Posted by LVMHgirl
I ordered a slim fit multi-angle case and an ultra-slim folio one (similar in design to the original apple iPad case), both in black by rooCASE for my iPad mini which is on the way. Will update when I receive them!
Slim-Fit Multi-angle Case:
So I've been using these cases for about a week now and I really LOVE them!
The Ultra-Slim folio case is very similar to the original apple ipad case where the ipad slips into place and the flap is "tucked" into place behind the ipad. The front cover folds back and tucks under to create the *stand* for two viewing angles like the original apple case. There is also a stylus holder on the back. Decent protection from drops and the bezel and sides are completely covered to guard against scratches and accidental "face down" predicaments. Sleep/wake function works well. The only minor issue I have with this case is that the part that covers the bezel sometimes makes it a little difficult to access the very edge of the screen to type or click on something. But overall, a good case.
The Slim-FIt Multi-Angle case has three great (and sturdy) viewing angles and is different from the Ultra-Slim because the bezel is completely uncovered except in two places where the ipad is popped in and held in place which allows you to see the ipad and appreciate it's beauty! Cover has a little clip type closure that keeps the ipad from opening in your bag or in case of a drop which is a good thing because the sides and bezel are exposed when the case is open. Clip also doubles as a sort of grip for your right hand. Decent protection from drops (when the case is closed). There is an elastic "handle" on the inside of the cover where you can slip in your left hand and easily hang on to the case single-handed.There is a stylus holder on the side. Sleep/wake function works well. (Seems even slimmer than the "ultra-slim" folio case, mainly because the part that covers the bezel on the ultra-slim adds a few millimeters.) Fantastic case!
(FYI: The first cases sent to me had issues with the sleep/wake function. But customer service at rooCASE is BEYOND amazing and they sent out replacement cases to me the day after I contacted them along with a prepaid return label for the defective ones.)
I highly recommend these cases!
Got an iHome case + Bluetooth keyboard today. Couldn't reply to the original thread so will just copy paste and add on to my first post with reviews.

Re: [Official] Best iPad Mini Case
I got the leather apple case for my iPhone 5S and liked it so much I purchased the ple leather case combo covers for the GF iPad Mini and my iPad air. Great products.
