What's Hot: Slim yet very protective, built-in stand, great colors.
What's Not: None.
We introduced the Zenus Galaxy Tab 10.1 Masstige Color Edge2 series case that showcased the company's high quality synthetic leather case collection to you. Zenus Case USA also makes a good collection of genuine leather cases for phones and tablets. The Zenus E'stime Color Point Series leather case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 shows off the quality of the materials and craftsmanship of these real leather cases nicely. The E'stime case offers very strong protection to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and is also very slim and stylish. The case comes in three color options: Black Chocolate, Fierce Red and Real Black.
The Zenus E'stime Color Point Stand series case is even slimmer than the Masstige Color Edge2 faux leather case, though weigh the same at 16 ounces. The case opens like a book with a form fitting tablet holder on the right and screen cover on the left. Both front and back covers have stiff inserts that ensure the case can protect the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from serious bumps inside of a bag or travel gear bag. The leather exterior is smooth with stitching, badge and color accents; and the interior is lined with a thin layer of soft Chamude.
The form fitting case has strong corner protections molded to curve with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 corners and edges. The thick corners will certainly absorb some shock to the tablet should you drop it while it?s in the case. The Zenus E?stime leather case feels very sturdy and protects the entire tablet. The front cover connects with the back via a flexible leather piece that has high quality stitching.
The Zenus Galaxy Tab 10.1 E?stime case has a simpler design compared to the Edge2 case. It has a built-in stand without the additional attachments found on the Edge2. The tablet holder has a break line that allows you to take the bottom of the tablet out of the holder and tilt it to stand on the front cover. Don?t worry, the two side clams near the top of the tablet will hold the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in place. The front cover has a raised lip to hold the standing tablet in place, though you can stand the tablet anywhere on the front cover to create more viewing angles. The soft Chamude material does have some grip so that your tablet won?t slide easily while standing on the cover, as long as nothing is shaking the tablet, like if you were on a bumpy road or a train. The steadiest position is when the tablet reaches the lip in a 45-degree angle.
The Zenus Galaxy Tab 10.1 E?stime Color Point Series leather case has all the necessary cutouts for the ports and buttons on the tablet including the sync/charge port and the side speakers. The top of the case covers the edge of the tablet sparingly, leaving the power button, volume rocker and the 3.5mm audio jack open for access. The case has a generous cutout on the back to give the camera and the flash a full view for taking photos and video.
Although the Zenus E?stime series case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 doesn?t come with hand straps or two separate stands like with the Masstige Edge2 case, we enjoy the case better because it?s even slimmer and the built-in stand works just as effective. Fans of genuine leather products will also like the smooth and well made leather in three saturated colors. The case offer serious protection for the entire tablet and gives easy access to all ports, buttons and cameras. The leather exterior is also grippy and definitely helps with better handling the thin and slippery tablet.
