Product Review: Snugg Nexus 7 Leather Case Cover

SnuggLogoLast year I bought a Google Nexus 7 Tablet to use as an eReader and to access the web. I knew it would need protection as it would get a lot of travel time in my bag. I quickly bought an inexpensive, boring black clip-on cover, but what I really wanted was something more attractive and still functional.

When The Snugg offered me a chance to review one of their cases, I quickly agreed. I was already familiar with Snugg and their large product line of high quality cases customized for many brands of tablets, smartphones, iPads and eReaders.

I browsed their website to see what was available for my Nexus tablet and found a variety of colors and several styles. The red one jumped out at me – a perfect color choice – attractive and stylish.

Great Look and Fit

When my cover arrived I put it to use immediately. My tablet slid right into the case, a perfect, snugg, fit. I secured it with the velcro fastener and it remained firmly in place.

If you use a stylus, there is a loop to hold it in place at the bottom of the cover. It’s in front the usb port opening and easily folds down for access to the port. When not in use it tucks up over the usb opening, protecting it from dust.

Closing the case will put the tablet into sleep mode, conserving battery life. Opening the cover automatically wakes up the tablet. And it works! My old cover was supposed to have this feature but unfortunately it never worked.

A feature I find very useful is the built-in stand. The cover folds back to create a dual position stand. It can be propped straight up for sitting on a table to watch videos or at a slightly lower angle for reading notes or webpages or – my favorite – recipes. And it looks so nice on my counter top.

When using the tablet as an eReader the cover folds over and there is an elastic hand strap inside. This makes it easy for me to hold the reader comfortably in the palm of my hand.

I’m thrilled with the look, feel and function of my new cover and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. A Snugg makes a great Holiday gift and there are a few people on my list that may be receiving one from Santa this year.

Snugg&Charlie_IMG_0494Why Choose Snugg?

You can’t always tell how good a product is when ordering online but there is no need to hesitate in choosing to purchase a Snugg. The people at Snugg understand this too, which is why they provide a promise of quality, a lifetime guarantee, and no fuss returns. Plus, the Snugg is available worldwide.

Even Charlie, my lovebird, approves of my new Snugg tablet cover.

I doubt you could find a nicer, better designed cover at such a reasonable price.

    I just inherited Carl’s old iPad mini and have been carrying it in my purse. I need a better cover for it and one like that looks ideal.
