Admittedly, I enjoy the beauty and design of the iPad 2 so much that I prefer it naked without a case. However, I do realize the need for protection especially recently when a friend dropped my iPad 2 while watching a video. Thankfully it hit carpet and there was no damage. Finding a case that elegantly matches up with the iPad’s stunning design is a challenge. Some iPad 2 cases that we’ve reviewed seem rushed to market and get negative marks for design points.
In this iPad 2 case review we’re looking at the Snugg iPad 2 Leather Case Cover and Flip Stand. The first thing we notice with this iPad 2 case is the classy business style design of this black faux leather case and stand. There is high quality off-white stitching along the edges and stiff extra protection under the front and rear cover of this iPad 2 case. The interior has a lovely suede feeling inside which is soft to the touch to keep scratches away from your iPad 2. (video demo below break)
As I slid my iPad 2 into the Snugg case I did not line up the home button cleanly on first try. This is not uncommon with first-time cases but in the end you want it line up with all the iPad 2′s connection points. With a little shifting the Snugg case married up nicely with my iPad 2. Snugg has made the cut-outs precise for all the iPad 2 ports. It all just lines up the way it is supposed to. This iPad 2 case by Snugg is 9.5” long X 7.5” wide X 0.75” thick.
The Snugg iPad 2 Case was mostly engineered to be used as a stand and in this category it performs solidly. There is a crease near the spine of the case that allows the front cover to fold into an iPad stand. There’s a flap stitched onto the back cover that secures to the front cover when it’s folded back to form the iPad stand. Whether we were in landscape or portrait orientation the Snugg case functioned as a stable iPad stand. But one of my favorites with this iPad 2 case is that you can slide your hand under an elastic strap on the back cover to use as a secure grip while you watch movies or talk on Facetime.
