iPad 2 Smart Screen Cover, The Cheaper Alternative

Thanks to MobileFun for sending out to me for review.

Pros:

- Literally just like the real smart cover
- Sleek and thin
- Sleep/wake function
- Very good quality materials used
- Holds onto the iPad with very strong magnets

Cons

There weren't any major cons so it gets 5 stars.

I've said before that the Smart Cover from Apple was over priced and will never be good enough protection for the whole of the iPad. This smart screen cover is a kind of Smart Cover kirf. It's exactly like the original Smart Cover from Apple, does exactly the same thing but £15 cheaper. If you really want a Smart Cover but don't want to shell out £40 for one this cheaper copy may be the one for you.

The cover is sleek and thin. It will easily protect your screen from the usual scratches and dust. I don't know what exactly the material is on the front but it feels like the same Polyurethane Covers used to make the original Smart Covers. And the inside of the cover has a micro fibre lining.

The cover latches onto the iPad with very strong magnets. It's so strong that you can hang the iPad from the case itself. So when in the kitchen and you're looking through your favourite cook book on the iPad you can have it latched onto the fridge. Who knew it could come in this handy.

Also for the people wondering what the black thing is on the back of my iPad, it's the BodyGuardz Armour Skin.

The sleep/wake function is also included with the cover, so once you open the cover the iPad wakes and once you close it the iPad sleeps. For those who are wondering, this is no magic trick. It's just magnets working together within the case and the edge of the iPad screen.

The cover only adds millimetres of thickness to the iPad so you won't be throwing away any of that sleekness at all.

Overall

As I mentioned at the beginning of this review if you really would like a Smart Cover but don't want to shell out £40 for one this may be the one for you. It is exactly the same as the original Smart Cover by Apple just £15 cheaper. Obviously when buying a cover like this you will get no protection for the back of the iPad. It's definitely a great purchase for those who want a thin cover which protects the screen and gives you two angles to work with.
