    The camera though
    The camera on my 9.7 Pro is fantastic and takes beautiful pictures.

    This late in the game I would wait for the new iPads to be released.

    I've been thinking about upgrading my iPad Air 2 to an iPad Pro. Pretty solid reward for getting a new job.
    At Verizon?

    Totally agree. Size DOES matter. I love my big one and everyone who sees it when I take it out ooh and ahh and want to touch it and play with it.

    Please let me know what you think. I have a "genuine apple leather" black case coming to compare to my real Apple black leather next week.
    I've used both the "genuine apple leather" as well as the saddle brown leather case that I got from @MizWylie these last few days. The packaging appears to be identical with the exception of the eBay case having Asian languages and no barcode as opposed to more European languages like on the case I got from MizWylie. Both cases feel identical, and appear to be identical with one exception. The apple logo on the case from MizWylie appears to be carved into the case and the case from eBay it appears to be traced into the case. The feel of the case feels identical to one that I have that is unused. However the inside isn't as soft as the other case. My verdict is that there are only two things that jump out at me that could lead me to calling it a fake. The apple logo being traced instead of carved out and the inside not being as soft as the three other apple leather cases that I have. As for the packaging, it could just be the packaging that the Asian market has since there's more Asian languages on it instead of European. I've seen this with watches, where each market gets different packaging. If it weren't for the apple logo and the inside of the case I don't think that one would be able to tell the difference between the two. Also I'd actually think that I was just getting an Asian market case at a great deal like I have gotten several Japanese Market Seiko dive watches at better prices than I could have gotten here.
    In the pictures the real case is on the left and the eBay case is on the right. I apologize for the lighting. The eBay case has the same markings on the inside that the real case has, you can't see them in the pictures though.

    No worries, please let us know how the black compares. If I didn't have a an apple leather already then I probably would never know the difference.

    You can't tell it's not real leather? I could tell without even touching it and even more so when I held it in my hand. Aside from the feel in the hand the fake case doesn't absorb the coconut oil at all as the leather one does because it's plastic and not porous like real leather. I was disappointed because I was hoping for a more exact replica like the silicone case fakes.

    I compared the feel to my sea blue leather, as it is brand new and unused. The two feel identical to me, aside from the inside lining of the eBay case. I've not put coconut oil on any of my cases as I prefer to let them wear naturally, just like the bands on my Swiss watches. Nothing beats naturally worn leather in my opinion.

    Probably tomorrow. I hadn't used eBay in an eternity so I hadn't updated my address. That case shipped to my mom's house so it's just a matter of me dragging myself over there. :lazy:

    I haven't opened it yet but I'm super impressed already with Totallee...down to the signed card of the person who packed and inspected.

    Nice.

    So what case is errbody using today? Using my JB Totallee today. Used my Pelican earlier and Thanotech today before that. Thinking tomorrow maybe my UAG Monarch or my Spigen Thin Armor.

    Problem with so many cases is I can't ever decide what I want to use. Almost feel guilty using UAG though as I don't want to tear it up
