    I just received my Blurex case and the on/off magnet doesn't work. I'm very disappointed. Video here:

    I would contact the seller. I got mine several weeks ago and it works perfect. It maybe that there is a defect with the magnet used in yours...or the magnet placement is slightly off?

    But either case, your problem specific to that exact case build, not the entire production line. I would think they will send you a new one as it shows the magnet is not working properly.

    Yes the strap is used for when you open the flap all the way to the back side. It simply holds the loose end to the opposite side of the case/screen. It wraps around to the front of the screen and covers up the very top of the touch screen, though you can shift it up slightly.

    It certainly can be used that way and could be useful, but I'm sure it is for keeping the cover closed securely when the N7 is no in use. A very common device on many covers (tablets or books) like Moleskine journals.

    Just contact Alex from Blurex. He is very easy to work with and accommodating. I'm sure he would make things right relatively quickly.

    No item, regardless of how highly (or lowly for that matter) regarded is not immune to isolated manufacturing errors. As unfortunate as it can become for the customer, it's the willingness and efficiency of correcting the problem that should be the next subject of focus.

    I'm sure that you'll be fine. Once you get a correctly working replacement, you will be very happy with it. Make sure that your magnetic sensor is actually working on your Nexus as well. Test by using a small magnet over on the side of the table to see if it puts the unit to sleep.

    The elastic strap is supposed to go over the corners and pulled to the fastener in the middle. I've seen many people keep it on the Nexus 7, it will show smudge marks if you leave it on the screen.

    I love the Blurex case. Funny thing is that I wanted a case with a stylus loop. Now that I have one, I don't think it's that great. I had an m-edge case from Staples. The Blurex is more compact and fits in my jacket better. I have no problems with the cover turning the Nexus off when bent all the way back and I love the stand angles.

    Hi all,

    Considering getting this case (Blurex or Youmee, they seem identical) but have one question/concern. When the cover is closed, does the hand strap rub on the screen; and will it eventually scratch or leave marks on the screen? I found a review of the Youmee on Amazon that shows some pictures of "smudges" on a screen protector from the strap. I was hoping to not use a screen protector at all, but don't want the screen to be damaged by a case.

    Anyone seeing any issues after using the Blurex or equivalent for a couple months?

    I just got one last week from Amazon and it is defective. The magnet puts the tablet to sleep just fine, but it also puts the tablet to sleep when the case lid is folded all the way back. I contacted Blurex and after no reply, contacted Amazon. They refunded my money and told me to throw the tablet away. They couldn't promise they could send one that works properly. Blurex eventually replied but there has been no reply to my 2nd reply. They seem to wait a week between messages.

    I actually need two cases - only bought this one just to test it for a week (and it failed the test!). I just need to know where can I buy a Blurex case that actually works, and is there a way I can fix my "free" defective case? I tried to find the magnets inside the case with another magnet but no luck. Even if I could just remove them and have no sleep feature other than actually pressing the sleep button I'd be fine with that.

    Throw the tablet away? Seems a bit extreme of a solution if it's just the cover that is problematic.

    Sorry to crash a thread about a Blurex case, but if anyone is dissatisfied, consider this slim Roocase. Very satisfied with it. Sleep/wake magnet works perfectly, without any problem when folding the cover back. Material feels soft and luxurious without any chemical smell. Ok, now back to your regularly scheduled programming ...

    What I like about the Blurex case is the hand strap. Thin elastic holds the case fully open, and you slip your hand into the hand strap for easy reading. Takes a ton of stress off the hand as you don't have to grip the case at all.

    Blurex replied to me again after a week. Looking at the latest reviews on Amazon I now see why they are taking so long to reply. Blurex replied to a few of the bad reviews and replied that without warning, Google changed their design of the sleep magnents. They can mail a stick-on "shield" or replace the case with one that works.
