    Default Case Review: MoKo Slim-Fit Case

    Case name:
    MoKo Slim-Fit Case

    Purchase link:
    Available through Amazon.com

    Multiple colors available. Link above is for red which was used for this review.

    Design:
    This case provides a great deal of protection while still maintaining a very slim profile. The Nexus 7 is held snugly and securely within six soft clips along the top and bottom. The two clips along the inside corners pop on and off to allow you to set the Nexus 7 into landscape orientation. There are two grooves along the inside of the cover which the Nexus 7 sits comfortably on. These two viewing angles, plus a third if you lean it against the clip, provide very comfortable setup. A built-in magnet in the flip cover provides sleep/wake functionality which has worked properly 100% of the time. The inside of the case includes a handstrap for use when holding the device one handed as well as an elastic strap to hold the cover open when flipped around the back. As seen in the pictures below, the device can be held upside down without the device or the case flapping around. Along the back you will find cutouts for the speaker. I did not find the sound to be muffled at all. This case, in terms of design, has not provided me with any concerns.

    Durability:
    The case really excels in durability. It is built very well all around. The case feels very solid in the hand and does not feel like there is any risk of threading coming loose or the quality decreasing over time.

    Protection:
    This case provides a good amount of protection from minor drops as it covers the front, back, and corners. However, I would not consider it to be a case to use as piece of mind if you're the kind to be a bit clumsy with your gadgets.

    Visual Appeal:
    Visually, I love this case. I find it to be very attractive and it definitely draws attention. And with various colors to choose from, it's easy to make your device stand out. It also does not cover the device 100% so the natural beauty of the Nexus 7 still shines through.

    Overall Pros:
    Very attractive design
    Sleep/wake functionality has been flawless
    Good amount of protection without sacrificing slimness

    Overall Cons:
    Not the best case for those that are a bit clumsy

    Overall Rating:
    I would HIGHLY recommend this case to any Nexus 7 owner.

    I agree with this assessment. I got one a couple weeks ago, and I think it's outstanding.

    I saw a review at Amazon that said the placement of the magnet in the cover caused the hand strap to be pushed into the screen when this case was closed. Have you seen any indication of that?

    Otherwise it looks like a really nice case and I was thinking of buying it but am scared of it damaging the screen.

    I have not seen any indication of that. I know that they did a major revision of the case shortly after release due to issues. I ordered after the revision so I cannot speak as to whether that was an issue with that version or not. But I would assume it was either just an issue with the first version or a defective unit.

    That is good to hear. Thanks for letting me know. The hand strap looks pretty useful.

    Great review of a great case!

    I got mine a couple weeks ago, and I have no issues (other than feeling like the stylus loop was an afterthought--but honestly, that's so minor to even be an issue.) I love its durability, design, and excellent fit. And unlike the "sleeve" design of so many cases that have such a generic feel, this case feels like it was designed specifically for my Nexus 7. I agree with the "clumsy user" assessment, and considering I am one of them, I'll have to be careful.

    Thanks for a nice review!

    I've been using this case for a couple of weeks and it does most of what I need it to do. My only issue is that I am a left-handed person in a right-handed world. When I flip the cover to the back and hold the tablet with my right hand, I have to dodge the curved clasp that secures the case when closed in order to get to the strap.

    I bought one from Amazon and like it so much I ordered another to stash away for if this wears out. I then got an email from the seller asking how I liked it, told them I loved it so much I bought a second and the reason why, they responded that this has lifetime warranty so if it ever wears out I could return it for a replacement so I could just return the second for a refund (wow!). I told them I would just keep it because I might get another N7 when the upgrade comes out. I'm sure it will, hope the external controls and ports are the same.

    I got black, wish I would have looked at the color options though. That red looks pretty good.

    Just got it, love it.
    Only thing I couldn't figure out is how to use it as a stand. Then after reading an Amazon review, it said, you have to pop the Nexus 7 out on the left side to place it in the grooves.
    Fortunately it pops in and out without a hassle.
    Other than that, no problems.
    Highly recommend this case, you can't beat it for value and style.
