BUILT Kindle FIRE Slim Folio Case Product Review by ChristineMM
My Star Rating: 5 Stars Out of 5 = I Love It
My Summary Statement: Whimsical Design, Neoprene Padding, Stands in Horizontal Position on a Hard Surface
This Kindle Fire case by BUILT is padded neoprene which is kept in the closed position with a fabric elastic band. Cloth elasticized tabs at each corner securely and safely fasten the Kindle Fire to this cover, it’s a tight fit. For people who like a padded neoprene cover this is great.
The edge of the cover has “anti-slip” pads made of silicone. This allows you to stand the Fire up on a table surface for hands-free viewing in the HORIZONTAL position only. This does not stand up well on fabric surfaces such as on your lap or while sitting in bed using a blanketed surface, it’s not too stable for that use.
Design: Robot Uprising
Robot Uprising is an edgy cartoon rendering of smiling robots. The background is white and the design is in black, lime green, orange and turquoise blue. I found the design whimsical. My fifteen year old son rejected this as uncool (I guess he is growing up as he’s a robotics teen) but my twelve year son old loved it. I think it’s fun, I’m a mother of sons who loved robots and who liked hand drawn art and whimsy.
This product is offered in many different graphic design patterns.
What Are Your Needs?
When choosing a case for your Kindle FIRE what you need to do is figure out your needs then find a case that suits your desire. There are all kinds of cases for all different people. Do you want some padding (neoprene padding) or do you like a hard unpadded design? Do you want a case that simply opens (like a book) or one that has a fastener you have to manually move to close it securely? Do you want a case that protects from scratches only or one that will allow the device to stand up hands-free such as is convenient for watching movies and television shows? Do you want a case for travel and carrying around and want to use the device without it being in a case or do you want to use it with the case on?
You decide what you need, then look for the case that fits the bill. I hope this review will clearly indicate what this product offers and does not supply.
I rate this product 5 stars = I Love It because it is well constructed and performs well for the uses that the manufacturer marketed it to provide.
