    Default Evecase Slimbook

    Evecase SlimBook Leather Folio Stand Case Cover for LG G Pad 8.3 - 8.3 inch Android Tablet ( Black):Amazon:Computers & Accessories

    Finally got it. Fits great and cut outs for ports, cameras, speakers and buttons align. Front and backing is sturdy, will take a fall if dropped. Stand works fine and the cover has wake lock feature. Fake leather isn't bad, smells good and does not mess with my illumishield screen protector.

    I give it 5 stars for what it is. I'd still rather have a TPU back case like my iPad has. Well, my wife's iPad now lol. But this'll do, Donkey!

    Looks nice, although I prefer that the case not cover the front of the device. Will buy one anyway.

    At least it looks like it fits well. I think mine is coming tomorrow. I actually can't wait now. I'll try to post some pictures here also. I know they'll probably look the same, but I'll also post the handled sleeve that came with the one I bought.

    FWIW, just got my Evecase from Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GFE2C1U/...0-20&m1k=vb_ac

    Very nice case. Don't know what the reviewer is complaining about on Amazon. Mine fits great, easy access to buttons and ports and does not obstruct the screen. Magnets hold cover closed and puts tablet to sleep. Feels very premium. Very good case so far, especially for the price.

    Got mine and having experience with many cases for a number of different make tablets i give this one 3 out of 5. The faux leather is the cheapest grade even for made in china, its not perfectly cut exposing plastic along the long bezels, and the tab's corners are unprotected. The best i can say is its temporary protection. Btw, the best case ive seen in a long time is the khomo case sold for the sammy tab 3 8.0. I hope they make one for the gpad.

    This things does its job, covers the tablet and although no corner covers, the front and back are hard enough to take the fall if it dropped.

    Also, doesn't cover the screen whatsoever when opened. It does have some play though. I mean, it's a $10 case for goodness sake.

    Someone posted pics of that on XDA. Looks the same as the eve case but the material might be different. It does not cover the corners. I got the eve case based on it being a US seller lol

    No this looks different in the fact that to me it looks like a hard shell with the cover, almost like the smart case. I got my Evecase with the neoprene carrier today in the mail. It's not bad. I do like the carrier as it's much smaller than the one I had for my Infinity.

    Yeah I think this one may be coming but not actually out yet. Here is the link to some pictures of ones for the Galaxy Note. This would be what I would want for the G Pad as well. Hopefully this become available in next few weeks.

    No it's different. On the Amazon mobile app it's described as Black II not just Black and it doesn't mention a hand strap.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EVN...?1385003006882

    In fact it looks exactly like the one someone posted about being on Amazon.UK but just a different company it even says Black II also.

    The one on the mobile site is definitely different. It looks like their hard shelled one that they make for the Galaxy Tab line like another poster said further up.

    Aww. and what i learned from pre ordering from a 3rd party is, they lower the price on launch day lol

    Bought! Not the greatest case, but not bad either. Stand is not what I expected (too vertical imo). But for $7 price it is hard to criticize a lot.

    Has anyone seen this....

    http://www.amazon.com/IVSO-KeyBook-B...0-20&m1k=vb_ac

    I know they are not available yet, but I'm curious if anyone has used a similar bluetooth keyboard case on other Android devices. Is there lag between when you press a key vs displaying the character? I think I'd have to actually seen the case, to determine its bulkiness.
    If anyone has any thoughts on this case, please share.
    Thanks.
