iPad Case Review: iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air Review
The iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air is a colorful folio style case with embossed characters from the Peanuts comic strip. Its unique graphics are familiar and standout. The case is very protective of the entire tablet and it comes in three color themes that feature different Snoopy designs. The case is very easy to use and has a built-in stand.
The iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air has a design that all Charlie Brown and the Peanuts fans will love. The case has a faux leather exterior that feels both soft and grippy in hand, and fine felt like interior that's kind to your tablet. Both the tablet holder and the front cover have very rigid inserts and the case certainly can protect your iPad Air from scratches, bumps, dents and even some drop shock. The top-loading case is super easy to install or take off, and it protects the entire tablet.
If you're indeed a fan of the Peanuts gang, you should have no trouble finding a design in this collection that suits your taste. The Snoopy Folio comes in bright pink, deep navy blue and dark gray, all featuring Snoopy as the main character on the front cover. But what about the rest of them? Don't worry. You'll see Lucy, Linus, Sally, even Woodstock and of course, Charlie Brown, on the interior prints and even on the back cover. Some of the images are embossed and others printed; and together, the design is fun and playful, making this an awesome case for kids who are into Peanuts comics and TV shows and those who are young at heart.
The iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air is also a very functional case. The case has generous cutouts for all ports and buttons including the rear camera and mic. The cutouts on the top for the power button, mic and audio jack give wide birth to these ports and button; the same goes for the side cutout for the screen lock and volume buttons. The bottom cutouts leave the speakers and Lightning port open, and even though it exposes the corners of the iPad Air, the rigid back panel protects the structural integrity of the tablet and will take any bumps for the tablet.
The iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air also offers a very functional built-in stand. The front cover folds back and works with the short tab on the back to position your tablet in two viewing angles, one ideal for media viewing and video chatting, and the other for typing on the screen. The stand works in only landscape orientation and it can hold up the tablet steadily. While the front cover works well as a stand, it doesn't support the iPad Air display's auto wake or auto sleep feature.
Slim and light, the iLuv Snoopy Folio for iPad Air is a very competent case that can protect the tablet from scratches and bumps in your bag and daily use. But the added exclusive Peanuts comic strip design attracts kids and adults alike who are fans of the series and want a case that shows their passion. The case is very functional thanks to the generous cutouts and it has a nice built-in stand. We like the fact that the case has grippy material on the outside and soft lining on the inside. The cover however doesn't support the auto-wake and auto-sleep feature.
