Hello there,
Do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior, google?

u/stupidasses · 23 pointsr/ipad

When I'm out & about: In this bumper case

When I'm at home: In this charger/stand

u/brianchenito · 19 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/Jabuuty671 · 15 pointsr/Surface

Have it on your SP4, your phone, and make sure you can access it from your computer. Leave all your necessary school files and even draft files on it. If you need to print somewhere or your Surface dies when you're using it your work will be ready to continue on another device.

HDMI/VGA adapter
get a set if you do regular presentations

1 USB port will not be enough

Zagg 10-Key Bluetooth Number Pad
As an Accounting major this was the best purchase I made, see my review and link to purchase here:

UAG Case
If you're the type to get Otterbox's/LifeProof/UAG cases for your phone, definitely get this for the Surface:

Bluetooth Mouse
The Microsoft Arc mouse is a great compact mouse. Do not get a USB mouse you will regret using the port. Careful not to get the USB version of the Arc mouse btw.

Screen Protector
I got a matte one for my SP3. If you plan on using the pen then this might not be desirable to you. I tried using the pen for notes and using OneNote for my first semester but it became useless as I type faster than I take notes. A Matte screen protector always feels good and you will rarely ever have to wipe and clean the screen.

u/DocCalculus · 12 pointsr/Nexus7

This one's been great for me for the last 4-5 months. Slim, light-weight and reasonably simple/attractive looking. That said, the pricing is looking a little weird right now.

EDIT: Corrected the link; thanks /u/Riekopo and /u/gardobus.

u/n0tsane42 · 11 pointsr/kindle

When I got my Paperwhite I did some research and found the OMOTON case. It's light, sturdy, and has a magnetic flap. Multiple color choices. The outside texture is nice, enough grip so it doesn't feel like it slides out of my hand. $14.99 on Amazon now. The price fluctuates though, I got mine for $10.

u/mineofgod · 9 pointsr/ipad

Absolutely, 1000%, get this case.

I use the iPad almost exclusively for drawing, and I find this case to be perfect for nearly every position I find myself in. Drawing in the bed? Perfect. Drawing on a desk? Perfect. Need it to stand upright? Perfect. I mean, it's got 10 different stand positions. The cover also turns off the screen, and it's got two perfect holders for the Pencil. One that charges it, and another that holds it uncharged, so you don't have to worry about draining the battery.

I've dropped my iPad a couple times in this case, and it is still in perfect condition. I also applied a matte screen protector. And while that initially made the screen a worse quality, I got used to it really fast, and it made drawing on the iPad a much more Wacom-like experience. I also got a grip for the Pencil. I do have to take off the grip in order to charge the Pencil, but because of this case's extra Pencil-holder, most of the time the grip is able to remain on.

The weight and thickness are great as well. Durability is fantastic. I've had this case since January, and it's held up perfectly. No stretching on the corners, like I've seen with Otterbox cases. My iPad has been through the ringer; I take it with me everywhere. I don't have to baby it, or worry about it bending. For several months, I had it in a basic cloth purse with no padding. And it survived beautifully.

I seriously can't recommend this case enough, haha.

u/kgyre · 8 pointsr/ipad

Consider the Pencil, and something like , if you're into writing by hand. Notes in iOS 11 is supposed to offer text search of handwritten notes.

And ignore anyone who says it's weird to take photos with it. This is the device you would look at those photos on later, so you're snapshotting exactly what you want to come back to later.

u/dregan · 7 pointsr/Nexus7

I ordered this one. It looks perfect but it won't ship until later this month.

u/ShinyBlueUnicorn · 7 pointsr/Nexus7

I'm personally getting this one:

They had great customer support when I got the original case for the first Nexus (it didn't come with the magnet, so they shipped me a case with one attached for free). Plus, the case is stellar.

u/Budikah · 7 pointsr/quityourbullshit

I'll link ya for others who might be interested as well.

Somebody on a forum did testing with a few cases and this one, while not pretty, did the trick and had the best temps of multiple cases, even fancier ones. Beforehand my Rpi3 was overheating on high resolution videos, and hasn't had a hitch since.

The downsides for me are dealable - it's open sided which means it might collect a bit more dust, although no issues yet over two months of use. The other is that the fan makes noise. You could likely find a better quality fan that makes less noise if it bothers you.

Usually the volume of what I'm watching drown out the fans - in my household I've generally got fans running or air conditioning or my own desktop rig so fan noise doesn't bother me at all. It doesn't make nasty sounds or very loud at all, just what you'd expect from a small and decenty speedy little fan.

u/ripitandstickit · 7 pointsr/ipad

here is what I have been using. It's not a sleeve but it goes great with the smart cover or keyboard

u/Prospekt01 · 6 pointsr/Nexus7

I got this moko case from amazon. Its really nice and slim.

u/33165564 · 6 pointsr/Nexus7

Buy it online? The link you sent was the same price.

If you want a flip cover, get a Poetic Smart Cover. Comes in tons of colors and has magnets to make the device sleep when you close it. I don't think the linked case does this.

I got my Poetic case on Amazon for $13. It had some cracks in it and I opened a warranty claim with them. Had a new case delivered 3 days later and got to keep the old one.


This is one of the authorized resellers of Poetic cases. If you make a warranty claim you need to have proof it came from either Poetic or an authorized dealer (there are two on Amazon and one on eBay I think. They're listed on the Poetic warranty page).

u/asdjfweaiv · 6 pointsr/kindle
u/Sockergod · 6 pointsr/Surface

Bought these case for my SP4 and love it. Had it for a couple of months and like that it has a zippered pocket for the AC adapter, the pen, and the surface mouse.

u/TheHozOpp1 · 6 pointsr/ipad

I bought this one:

I love where it holds the pencil. Its not a sleeve, but it keeps the pencil in place, but also handy when you need it. the little hole in at the corner holds the pencil lid when its plugged into the iPad to charge.

It's nothing fancy, but functional as hell.

u/LeonardoDiRaprio · 6 pointsr/ipad

This is my ipad-focused case that I keep in my backpack. It contains the following:

(1) USB C to Lightning Cable

(1) USB C to USB C Cable

(1) USB A to Lightning Cable

(1) Foldable Keyboard

(1) USB C Hub

(1) 45W USB C Power Bank & (1) 45W Wall Charger

(1) Set of Apple Airpods

(2) 128GB Flashdrives

I'm also using this case for my iPad, and this screen protector.

Hope this helps!

u/greenboxer · 5 pointsr/SchoolIdolFestival

You'll be happy to note that I've looked into this issue EXTREMELY thoroughly and I came up with a solution that worked for me.

Basically, the problem is that the Nexus 7 digitizer has poor sensitivity/quality control/consistency and poor software. What I did to hit notes 100% of the time with no errors (hold notes that drop, notes that don't tap, tap lag, etc), is to use the bootloaded touch screen fix (the instructions which are more or less in the second link above) AND also to be physically touching the case. The software fix helps slightly, but I noticed that there's still a chance to miss certain notes.

What gave me 100% was physically touching the case. I have a strip of copper tape running from the back of the device into the edges (tucked into the removable plastic backing of the case). My device is in a case with a cover, so only the side of the device is accessible, so I place my 2 thumbs here and tap with my fingers.

Maybe this diagram can help?

For reference, it sorta looks stupid, but it works. I've been able to FC soldier game on hard, and every EX song so far (except for snow halation).

Edit: I'm also using a matte screen protector

u/rjk79 · 5 pointsr/Nexus7

I haven't seen anything exactly like the ipad case, there isn't the magnetic attachment point that the ipad has, so I don't think there will be a cover only like that. I have [this case] (, which is the closest I've seen. The "full case" part adds minimal bulk, and I like it so far (especially for the price).

u/r0cki · 5 pointsr/Nexus7

Don't know anything about cases other than the Poetic Slimline (which I use):

Having used the rubber one from ASUS, can't even compare with the Poetic, the step in quality and protection is MASSIVE.

u/goretsky · 5 pointsr/Nexus7


I just received the Poetic SlimLine Case for my Nexus 7 FHD (2013) and so far I am very happy with it. The case is an exact fit for my Nexus 7 and has openings for all the ports, including the rear camera. The fit of the cover against the case is excllent as well, with no flexing of the cover or problems at the "hinge" area.

I also ordered some matte screen protectors¹ from a brand I hadn't heard of before (Crazy On Digital) but were (1) inexpensive; and (2) had good reviews; and those seem to be working fine so far as well.

• Poetic SlimLine Case on Amazon:

• COD Screen Protector:

¹I prefer a matte screen, like a ThinkPad has.

u/Endda · 5 pointsr/SquaredCircle

I think I saw that thing on LGR recently. It's a bread wrist rest

u/anIncognitoSuperhero · 5 pointsr/Surface

SP4 i7/16gb/256 user here.

I am currently using a Kensington Black Belt 2nd Degree for a couple months now. It is not bulky and offers good protection for the back and sides of my SP4. Another positive note is that it allows full mobility of the keyboard. You can keep it magnetically attached and fold it back all the way if you want to use tablet mode.

The case is so slim that it can be also placed in a sleeve or laptop bag if that is how you transport your SP.

Poetic Lumos Flexible Soft Transparent Ultra-Thin Impact Resistant TPU Case for Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Crystal Clear

u/Mistredo · 5 pointsr/ipad
u/nudoru · 5 pointsr/ipad

I just got on of these in the mail today and like it. Choose the cocoa color so it's warmer than the grey. But it works perfectly with the Smart Cover and keyboards. Has a good grippy/soft touch feel and looks nice.

u/dephantom · 5 pointsr/ipad

This one is my favorite. Matches the Smart Keyboard perfect in terms of color and the feel of materials. Highly recommend!

u/rThereAnyNamesOpen · 5 pointsr/ipad

I bought this one. The charcoal gray color matches the keyboard absolutely perfectly. Nice and slim, keeps weight down, and looks great. Also very inexpensive.

u/TheLastMtnDew · 5 pointsr/iPadPro

I got the zugu case in navy blue. It has so many angles to prop it up, has 2 places to hold your apple pencil securely, feels sturdy, and looks great. Since you’re going to use it for drawing i highly recommend this

u/CodeNameVii · 5 pointsr/iPadPro

This the case I got and it is fantastic. Zugu case

u/thegreyquincy · 4 pointsr/Nexus7

Nice! I just got the Moko case for mine. Looks almost exactly the same.

u/TheLotri · 4 pointsr/Nexus7

The Moko might not be custom or "premium" but the one for the original Nexus is pretty nice. I like the carbon fiber texture, and it has a lifetime warranty. :)

u/jscheel · 4 pointsr/kindle

I've got the omoton case, and it's been pretty awesome. Especially at $11. Also has a voyage version.

Anybody know how it stacks up against the official paperwhite case?

u/TheLatestTrance · 4 pointsr/Surface
u/wishful_cynic · 4 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Listen to shadow.

Here's a nice wrist rest for $14 on Amazon. It's even Prime.

u/BiaxialObject48 · 4 pointsr/gadgets

The Surface Pro with LTE Advanced seems to match your needs. The LTE model comes with a nano SIM card slot so your AT&T 4G plan should work with it. With the current promotion, this model (i5, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM) is $1250 so its only just outside your budget, if that's fine. Keep in mind though that you would need to buy the Type Cover for the Surface.

I've seen a few rugged cases on Amazon like this one from Kensington or this one from UAG so those should be fine. Here's the Microsoft Store page for the Surface itself. You can also buy some of the accessories bundled together (like the UAG case and Type Cover) by clicking on "SEE DEALS" and going to "Bundle and Save", although there isn't much of a discount.

Edit: You could probably go for an older used Surface Pro as well to save money, but be sure to buy the LTE model otherwise it won't have a SIM card slot.

u/ascendr · 4 pointsr/ipad

I use the Poetic Lumos case:

I chose this one because I wanted the lightest option I could find while able to use the Apple Smart Cover or Smart Keyboard, and have a spot to attach the Pencil.

u/lac__ · 4 pointsr/ipad

I got this. Fits my 10.5” great and has a nice texture on the back.

u/yadda4sure · 4 pointsr/ipad
u/BobbyD84 · 3 pointsr/Nexus7

[This case] (

It was like $2 when I bought it a year and a half ago. Still looks brand new and fits like a glove.

u/robotrout · 3 pointsr/Nexus7
u/pennywaltz · 3 pointsr/Nexus7

I use it daily on my 2 hr per way train ride and i love this case

u/riversofgore · 3 pointsr/Nexus7

Just buy the Moko case. It's $15 and feels like they should be charging twice as much. I've had one on my first gen for nearly a year without any issues ever. When I got one for my 2nd gen it was just as well put together. 4.5 star rating on Amazon with nearly 2700 reviews.

u/sugarfreediabetes · 3 pointsr/Nexus7

The Poetic Slimline case

This case is rather minimalistic and has a nice leather feel to it. Granted its only 12-15$ wherever you look its just going to be faux leather but feels genuine. It has some form of bumper protection but since it's a thin case it's not as protective as the larger cases. It does however cover all four edges and the fold over also has an auto-sleep every time you close it and wakes when you open the screen because of a small magnet. The magnet does not interfere with screen sleep issues (as far as I'm concerned, never happened to me). The case is entirely lightweight and also has microfiber on the inside of the closing flap so it doesn't scratch your screen when closed.

I've had this case since January and its still working the same as it did when it came in brand new. Definitely a case you want to look into if you want something nice, lightweight, and still has a form of protection even if it doesn't leave the house

u/ink1026 · 3 pointsr/kindle

Get him the Paperwhite. If his eyes don't bother him with regular books he'll be able to read on the Paperwhite with no problem.

As far as cases go, the official Amazon case is nice, but I prefer this Omoton case (better price, and better design).

u/StuffedHobbes · 3 pointsr/kindle

Enjoy! I've had my paperwhite for 2 months and I love it. I purchased this for my cover and it works great!

u/spicymacncheese · 3 pointsr/RetroPie

Something like this might work if you simply replace the included standoff posts with something longer picked up from the hardware store. This would allow extra vertical space for the powerblock. The case does fit the Raspberry Pi 3 even though it doesn't say so in the description.

u/apathycoalition · 3 pointsr/ODroid

It doesn't terribly need a fan, as the heatsink is big enough to keep it at reasonable temps under load as long as you're not putting it in a really tight enclosure.

If you're still set on active cooling buy a case with a fan or 3D print a raspberry pi case with a fan mount.

u/darkbrokenheartz · 3 pointsr/RetroPie

Tracking my progress, settings, power and cooling setup here in the Raspi3 section.
But basically I am using Heatsinks that are glued on with thermal adhesive as well as a case with an active cooling fan,

u/ILuhMeSomeBlackWomen · 3 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

Guten tag!

I purchased this Fintie case in black for $12 from Amazon. It's a fantastic case. The fit is very precise, and the magnetic closure works well. I would absolutely purchase another of these cases in the future, and have recommended them and also been approved of by two of my coworkers.

Manufacturers headline:

Fintie NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 SmartShell Case - Ultra Slim Lightweight Stand Cover

u/tomkatt · 3 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

Oh yeah. It's easy as dirt to unlock and root. The stock ROM will remove root and TWRP on OTA updates though, just a heads up.

Fintie makes pretty great cases on the cheap. I've gotten their stuff for every tablet I've owned. I use this one since I like a heftier device and it fits well in my bluetooth controller's grips, but there's a slim shell one too more like the official case if you prefer.

u/Sexoface · 3 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I got this case. It's great. Its magnetic and also has a hardshell case for the backside. I was skeptical of the price, but I'm very happy with it. I really recommend it.

u/dunkah · 3 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I've been using this one (8.99) since my $50 broke. It's been sturdy the last few months.

It looks exactly the same as the others posted, just a different seller.

u/lady_bluesky · 3 pointsr/Atlanta

I just ordered a standing desk converter thingy for my home office! Now maybe my back will hurt less like a sad old lady's. Also, I should probably go to my office-office sometime soon, I haven't been in since like February.... whoops........

Edit: also might be seriously considering purchasing this wrist rest

u/joshmaaaaaaans · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Yes 👌

u/Anzeis · 3 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

It's actually another mouse wrist.

u/kurifatales · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Look no further, it's even on sale😂

u/AuraeShadowstorm · 3 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

There was a similar post a week or so ago pointing to a similar product.

I bought one. It's fun and silly. My co workers think I'm strange. A bit to soft though to provide proper wrist support. It's not wide enough compared to most wrist rests. I have to keep it about an inch away from the edge of my keyboard to type. Length wise it's as long as a TKL, but it's tapered on the ends. So it really is more suited for a 40% keyboard.

u/AlastorX50 · 3 pointsr/Surface

My personal favorite Kensington

u/smalls1652 · 3 pointsr/ipad

I use the Smart Keyboard Cover with no screen protector or case. I have like one scratch on the screen and it's hard to notice unless you actively look for it. I have a sleeve for it too.

u/mcarrode · 3 pointsr/iPadPro

Poetic Lumos Flexible Soft Transparent Ultra-Thin Impact Resistant TPU Case for Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Crystal Clear

It was the first thing that came up when searching for "poetic 10.5 ipad."

u/mrkhiggz · 3 pointsr/ipad

I have this case for mine and have no complaints. It fits snugly and the buttons are crisp. The cover even wakes the screen. Not bad at all for the price.

u/I_am_Bruce_Wayne · 3 pointsr/ipad

I believe it was this one.

I also had a glass cover on it. I bring it to the gym for various reasons. One of the major reasons I dropped it as well was that I had the front cover actually folded to the back, which caused it to be a bit more slippery.

u/repapap · 3 pointsr/ipad

I have this one.

I've been pretty pleased with it. Smelled a little funky at first, but I just left it air out for a few hours and it was fine. The integrated SmartCover is actually more sturdy than the one I bought from Apple and so the iPad wobbles a lot less when I'm using it with the Cover being used like a kick stand.

Edit: Get this one instead. The first product I listed was good, but this back cover is so much better when paired with a SmartCover.

u/innershuh · 3 pointsr/iosgaming

I already had purchased this case here for my ipad, and I typically do one of two things.

  • If I'm sitting at a table I'll prop my iPad up like this
  • If I'm in a recliner, or on a couch, or sitting up in bed I have a thick memory foam pillow that is hard enough to rest my forearms on while I hold the iPad up, and is much more comfortable.
u/daroga28 · 3 pointsr/ipad

In that case maybe something like this would be a better option:

iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Charcoal Gray Color Case With Pen Holder - Companion Cover - Perfect match for Apple Smart keyboard and Cover

u/pwnedkiller · 3 pointsr/ipad

I got this cover for $9 and some change open box it works fantasticly and is very study along with perfectly blending in the with keyboard cover. Their is a open box right now though amazon warhouse for $8.

u/Orbmiser · 3 pointsr/ipad

Many Rave about the ZUGU CASE - iPad Pro 10.5 inch Case Prodigy X but at $60 I didn't want to start with that before trying cheaper options.

Some nice ones at a fraction of the cost. There is the KHOMO iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Charcoal Gray Color Case at $13 looks good. Or the iVAPO iPad Pro 10.5 Case Pencil Holder for $23.

I ended up with the Fintie iPad Pro 10.5 Case with Built-in Apple Pencil Holder for $15. Only negative is pencil holder is too small for Pencil with a sleeve on it. Works fine without a sleeve on the Pencil.

Might have to latter consider others for now the cheapy works fine.

Sad and Annoying that a big chunk of iPad sales is Space Grey but we can't get the High Priced Pencil in colors to match.


u/rlazer1 · 3 pointsr/iPadPro
u/Sshaawnn · 3 pointsr/ipad

These are from, but I’d think you should be able to find them:

ESR Clear Hard Case for The iPad Pro 10.5", [Perfect Match with Smart Keyboard] Slim Fit Back Shell Cover Compatible for iPad Pro 10.5 Inch(Charcoal Gray)

KHOMO iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Charcoal Gray Color Case - Companion Cover - Perfect Match for Apple Smart Keyboard and Cover.

u/cmoses78732 · 3 pointsr/ipad

I got this case from Amazon. I think it is the closest thing to the missing Apple cover. I got the Midnight Blue one. It works well with the Apple Smart Cover and the Apple Smart Keyboard.

u/JenniOLush · 3 pointsr/iPadPro

I had an Apple Smart Keyboard and an Apple “back case” on my 9.7... it bent on me. Luckily I was in the 90 day window. Apple had mercy on me and fixed it.

Months later I give husband the replacement 9.7 and get a 10.5. Got an off name brand back case and a Smart Keyboard. Same deal, my 10.5 bends on me.

Both bends were around the Smart Keyboard and the second time the Apple G said it really looked like the SK was pulling my 10.5 around the magnetic area in a way that caused it to bend. She replaced my 10.5 and I picked up replacement the next day.

I sold my 9.7 Apple stuff and returned my 10.5 Apple/off name brand stuff and bought a Zagg Keyboard for both.

It’s the BEST decision I ever made. The Zagg Keyboard is so much better than the SK because it has back lighting (in 7 different colors) and typing keys can compress (more like your MacBook). I’ve had the thing for 3 months and have not yet had to charge it once.

Also the protection the full case gives my 10.5 is SOOO much better than what I got with the Apple stuff.

Here is a link to the Zagg Keyboard:

Here is a link to an off name brand “back case:”

Clearly I think you should go Zagg but that’s just my experience!!!!

u/Vagabondleon · 3 pointsr/ipad

I ordered this one last month and it has been wonderful

u/vkoser · 3 pointsr/ipad

This case is very popular. I have it on my 12.9" pro. It's a little on the heavy side, but the functionality is really great with many angles to view and good protection.

The Muse Case - 2018 iPad Pro 11 inch (New Model) - Very Protective But Thin + Convenient Magnetic Stand + Sleep/Wake Cover - ZUGU CASE

u/techontech · 3 pointsr/ipad

Closest thing to what you describe:

Almost any angle hinge kickstand but no keyboard:

Another kickstand with keyboard, but not really a hinge kickstand:

Not kickstand, but the one that I went with:

I believe all 3 have been talked about throughout this thread, so if you search by their names, you can see how others feel about them (mostly positive for each one). I've been looking for one as well, though without the keyboard. Unfortunately, i don't think we have yet to have a stand that comes close to the fluidity of a Surface Pro hinge stand. I'm waiting to see if anything newer pops up in the fall (ideally hoping to see one with a trackpad). In the meantime, I picked up a Zugu case that has functioned pretty well.

u/MHC304 · 3 pointsr/ipad

Check out the Zugu case. I have it and love it and I think it’s exactly what you’re looking for. It’s on amazon too. A little pricy at $60 but it is definitely worth it imo.

u/TarHound · 3 pointsr/ipad

I use the Zugu Muse case for the 12.9" pro, but it comes in a 11" model too

It has many viewing angles, and supports the Apple pencil. It provides very good protection and feels very sturdy. I have no fears of bending my iPad when protected by this.

Only thing is I feel like the screen more quickly gets dusty because the felt touches your lap/table/whatever surface you place your iPad on when using its viewing angles.

u/royksprekk · 3 pointsr/iPadPro

I have a Zugu Muse case, and it’s absolutely amazing. Built-in housing for magnetic pencil attachment, with a sleeve in back to carry it when you’re traveling and don’t want to risk losing it. Full protection, and eight possible stand positions. The button covers don’t have the annoyingly spongy resistance that other cases I’ve had have given me. Magnets in all the right spots, so things stay attached where they’re supposed to. Overall, it looks and feels premium.

It doesn’t have Smart Keyboard compatibility, but I’ve found that a decent portable Bluetooth keyboard takes care of that need, and although it’s not all-in-one, I like having the option to not have a keyboard in the way, as well as the ability to position it further from the iPad.

The Muse Case - 2018 iPad Pro 11 inch (New Model) - Very Protective But Thin + Convenient Magnetic Stand + Sleep/Wake Cover - ZUGU CASE

u/CrentistTheDentist · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Get the Poetic Slimline case. The black one was $5 when I preordered it, but I think it's gone up to $10, with the other colors being $15. It looks a lot like the ASUS premium cover and works great. Auto sleep/wakes the screen, feels and fits great, etc. I like the way it attaches much more than most of the other cases I've seen that just loop an elastic band over the corners or have weird claw things that grip around the edges.

u/sinoth · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Seems silly to protect the back of the case when it is already a sturdy material. I realize most people get this sort of case to protect from drops, but I'm not too worried about that.

Tube sock thing would almost work but I'm mostly trying to protect the glass from piercing damage. The most hostile environment the tablet has to endure is my wife's purse, which has all sorts of pointy implements. A leather or rubber case would protect from piercing better than cloth.

I came across this case which doesn't look too bad, but still seems thicker than it needs to be. The Dodo case looks amazing but the adhesive would make it difficult to remove the tablet. The official case bugs me because the front flap doesn't secure in any way. This one isn't out yet but seems to be the best of the bunch.

You know, maybe I don't give the glass enough credit. I have been using my current phone (Samsung Galaxy S) without a case for over 2 years, and the glass still looks great. There are some tiny scratches, but you have to reallllly look to see them. I suppose the big difference is the phone stays in my relatively safe pocket while the tablet gets tossed into the nearest container.

u/AwesoMeme · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

This looks like the one I'll be waiting for. Not exactly Apple sexy but I think it's the closest we're going to get for now. I wish there were some more colors.

u/jbennett0043 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7
u/DDeveryday · 2 pointsr/Nexus7
u/loganizzi · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I purchased this case when it was first available and they had a few problems with the original builds. I just received my 3rd version of this case (all replacements free of charge) and I have to say that this time they have it perfect.

I would highly recommend this case to anyone who is looking for something with a solid feel, very slim profile and built in stand functionality. It also has a smart cover. The 7 fits very snuggly into the case.

Company I purchased through sent all replacements without any request or inquiry on my part.

Here is where I got it on Amazon.

u/yokens · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

There are plenty of cases like that. Just go to Amazon and search for Nexus 7 cases and you'll see plenty of selection.

I personally use this one. It felt a tiny bit bulky when I first got it, but now that I'm used to it, it feels fine and I'm quite fine of it.

u/sri745 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Ah perfect timing OP. I was just looking at cases online. Here are the ones I was considering:

  1. Moko Ultra Slim Lightweight
  2. Poetic Slimbook Leather Case

That Nillkin looks pretty bad in my opinion. Could just be the pictures though.

I like the looks of the second one but in the first picture, it doesn't seem to provide any corner protection - I'd be weary of that. Again, could just be the picture. Perhaps someone who owns either one of these cases could chime in.

I just received this MoKo case yesterday. I like it pretty well. It gives just enough coverage without covering the bezel.

u/work543 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7
u/superherowithnopower · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Though I've noticed prices are going up a bit. When I ordered my case, it was only $2.99 + shipping; now it's up to $12.99 (with free Prime shipping, if you get that). Still, Amazon shows a list price of $39.00, so you're still getting a good deal.

u/Max_W_ · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Here's another one you missed:

MoKo - Slim $5.97 (different style of cover than the one /u/Chezzabe listed)

u/SketchyMcSketch · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

i picked up this one. love the tri-fold stand feature and thin design. they say it's available august 10th, but i put in the order today and it now says "shipping soon". so they'll probably ship earlier than stated.

u/Link2999 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Damn. I just bought 3. (You save on shipping if you buy more than one). Cost me $10.93.

Edit: Now they're a penny. Can't automatically cancel, but I sent an email and ordered them again for a penny each. Total came to like $7.99.

Edit 2: Cancelled my first order as of 2pm EDT. I also put in another order for another case at $3, so I paid $10 for 4 cases. Great deal! (Cases are back up to 99cents by the way)

u/Beeslo · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Nothing beats my Moko case. This thing is insanely well made. Includes a magnet so that the Nexus 7 turns off and on whenever you open it. Completely secures the tablet in it without surrounding it all around with the case material things to six appropriately placed holders. An elastic band helps secure the case in the completely open style, where it has a similar hand hold in the back as the Snugg. And the elastic band can be used to hold the tablet in a secure stand configuration although you can set it up easily in its stand configuration without it. I don't doubt this other case is good as well, but the Moko does everything its does but better and it looks really good as well.

u/Kat-320 · 2 pointsr/EDC

That's actually this case with a vinyl sticker I put on myself. I got the sticker from a convention, but you can get one here as well.

  3. Here is the item I'd like. :)
  4. If you need me, I'll be in the refrigerator.
u/dcpDarkMatter · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I picked up the MoKo case; seems to work pretty well. Lots of different colors and only ~16 USD from Amazon. Adds maybe 3/8ths to 1/2 inch to the thickness when closed.

u/civiltribe · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I got one of the MoKo cases, seems great so far. It's currently going for $15 plus shipping but I preordered so it came out to under $12 after shipping.

u/banjoman05 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Then the 2013 N7 is probably your best bet. Try to find a 2013 though, it's quite an upgrade over the 2012 and not worth saving a few dollars.

My reason for the Nvidia upgrade was Gamestreaming, better controller support (I like the Shield's controller more than a DS3), slightly larger screen, etc... I'd recommend picking up this case if you get a N7. I had the same type for my 2012 and 2013 tabs.

u/trickjarrett · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

Also they are offering a few other case designs. I prefer this style cover:

u/BluegrassGeek · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I used a Poetic Slimline. Not perfect, but it worked well enough for me.

u/linknight · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

These Poetic Slimline cases are really nice. I got one of them when they were like $5. Really high quality feel to them.

u/LordRandy · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

This exact same thing happened to me ~2 weeks ago. I heard OfficeMax had them on sale, so I gave my local branch a call. The manager at OfficeMax said they were no longer getting shipments of the N7, but that I could buy their display model for $130. When I got there the tablet was powered off and wouldn't turn on. I had him charge the device and returned after work to check it out.

The device powered up and was still running Android 4.4.1 so it clearly hadn't been used in a while. I used a lens wipe to clean the screen and was happy to see it was completely scratch free. The manager told me they rarely sold tablets at their store, and that he hadn't seen the N7 used in ~6 months. I was able to haggle him down to $100, and bought a 2-year unlimited warranty for an extra $15.

When i got the device home I factory reset it and it has been running flawlessly. I also purchased [This case] ( because I heard the spontaneous screen cracking could be due to the chassis of the device flexing. With the case and the $15 2-year warranty I feel very secure about owning this device, despite it being a display model.

TL;DR: Call your local OfficeMax, they may have a display model they will sell you on the cheap. Also ask about warranty opportunities!

u/slow_as_light · 2 pointsr/EDC

Poetic case. It's nice-- I like having the hall magnet in the case. It fits perfectly in the front pocket of my bag. I've carried it around for eight months or so and it looks new.

u/Diogee19 · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I purchased

I'm quite happy with it for just $13.

u/skubiszm · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I got this Poetic one. I love the smart cover rip off. Slim, sleek and great looking.

u/bhigh · 2 pointsr/Nexus7

I have the Poetic Slimline case.

It's held up well so far, and works with my Qi charger. (LG WCP-300).

Here is one example, where all I did was change the "ca" to "com": kindle paperwhite case: $94.76 CAD kindle paperwhite case: $13.99 USD (per, they have always been this price, nothwithstanding the "sale price")

u/cdigioia · 2 pointsr/kindle

This case on Amazon is $12 and has ridiculously good reviews.

u/ChefTimmy · 2 pointsr/kindle

If it really is normally $37, the OMOTON appears to be identical, at $14-16, depending on color.

u/viper_in_the_grass · 2 pointsr/kindle

I checked a few older threads and here are a few links to suggested covers:




They all bend backwards and have auto wake/sleep. They all have different colours and designs.

These are the regular covers. There are also some neat covers called origami that fold in the back, making a little stand for the Kindle. Here's one by Fintie. Seems like all these brands have them, so just search and choose your favourite.

Note: those links are for the Paperbacks versions. If you go with the Voyage, just search for that version.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/kindle

If you're looking for a sleeve I recommend this one:

If you're looking for a case I'd get this one (but warning, its insanely difficult/annoying to remove)

u/solidnitrogen · 2 pointsr/Surface

I got a moko protect case from amazon, it's a hard plastic shell with front cover and it allows for full use of the kickstand. And for 17$ it's been amazing.

u/imanomeletteAMA · 2 pointsr/Surface

I have the SP3 i5 128GB with a grey type cover, the MoKo Ultra Slim Lightweight Shell Stand Cover Case with the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 that I've been meaning to get replaced with a bluetooth one but the Arc Touch Mouse is so damn expensive.

u/fullofbones · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield
u/mikewitt · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I have the Fintie SmartShell case, and I don't really like it. Perhaps it's the tablet, but it doesn't seem to reliably wake or sleep the device, and on occasion when I close the flap, I can hear my finger presses being registered by the screen; and when it does that, the screen does not shut off. I would like to buy the official case, but I just don't have the money right now.

Edit: This case, for anyone wondering

u/Crasty · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I recommend any of these.
I have one, and it's fantastic. I've heard bad things about the official cases. I don't worry about mine at all. I also don't drop it from standing heights on the regular. If you are going to use it to play hockey, I'd get something thicker.

u/TrevelyanISU · 2 pointsr/nvidiashield

I've got intelliarmor on mine and it is probably the best screen protector I've ever had for a device. As for case, I think it's up to personal preferences in part, but brand aside I highly recommend getting a case that the front is tri-fold to double as a stand. I personally have this one: but any case like that with good reviews should be fine, IMO.

u/Thales_Miletus · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

This has a hole for the stylus, but I have the K1 and it didn't bother me. I really like the case so far. Magnet screen lock works great, tablet snaps in securely, and it stands up nicely so far. Zero complaints from me.

u/drrenhoek · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I just looked up the Beepole case and it looks very similar to Fintie NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 SmartShell Case. I'm very pleasantly surprised how well this relatively inexpensive case functions. I would recommend it.

u/shiddoni · 2 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Bought me one of these last year. Great novelty value for people that come over, but not very practical.

u/watches4321 · 2 pointsr/WatchURaffle

u/turlian · 2 pointsr/Surface

This is the one I use. It lives in my Timbuk2 messenger bag.

u/stevenw00d · 2 pointsr/Surface

My wife has that on her SP3 and we really like it.

I got this one:
We both think it is even better. Only one external pocket, but the zipper stops about 1/2" short on both sides which allows me to clip my pin on one side and stick my HDMI-mHDMI adapter in the other side. The handle comes in extremely handy as well.

u/construktz · 2 pointsr/SuggestALaptop

Speaking from personal experience, I would go with this Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

I was in the market for a machine so my daughter could do her art without covering our house in the inane ramblings of an 8 year old, so I started digging into convertibles with pens. I finally settled on the SP4.

It's extremely lightweight, the magnet attachment for the keyboard and power are fantastic features, the pen is really great and accurate, and the display is absolutely beautiful. I really suggest the i5/8GB model, since you can't upgrade it, and I would suggest getting this UAG Case as well. I tested a number of cases first and landed on that one, as it allows the keyboard to snap to it without removing the case or having any other weird addition like the Otterbox one has.

Also keeping in mind that the Surface Pro Type Cover is separate, it is on the high end of your budget. But something that will last all day (in power saving mode), and be extremely easy to carry around with a good quality pen is well worth it.

u/lincolnhawks1 · 2 pointsr/Surface

I've used this rugged case for the past year: UAG Rugged Case. Pros: I could probably crush someone's skull with it if they attacked me during my commute. Cons: heavy (14 oz), the joint for the built-in stand is kind of flimsy, heat is not dissipated like it needs to be and the battery drains faster than normal. Looking at the other posts, I'll probably get a screen-protector and maybe a lighter case.

I find myself taking my SP out of the case quite often because I like the way it looks and the full range of positions with the SP stand vs the case's stand.



u/killall-q · 2 pointsr/Surface

This case was pretty much made for the military:


If you get him a non-Core M3 SP4 though, the heatsink is behind the kickstand, and a case that allows the kickstand to open would prevent overheating.

Kensington Black Belt

u/Sneaky-Raptor · 2 pointsr/Surface

I'm looking at this one now.

u/TheUsernameMeans · 2 pointsr/surface4

I'm an engineering student with mine and I have the Kensington Black Belt case for it. Keeps it safe from all the scuffs from the machinery and drops from tables.

I had the urban armor gear one for awhile, but noticed it had ventilation problems due to a form of heat dissipation seems to exist behind the devices' built in kickstand. Also the UAG case has a kickstand with only 4 positions and the cord used to keep the type cover in place broke after 4 months of use.

The Kensington case allows you to use the built in kickstand and is just a better quality built case all around in my opinion

I bought mine on amazon for around $50 but it's the same price bracket MSRP as the

Source: Owned both cases, more in love with the Kensington.

u/thebigbug · 2 pointsr/Surface

From light scratches? Yes. Drops? No. And while protecting from scratches may help it keep an aesthetically pleasing look, protecting from drops keeps the device usable in most situations where you'd otherwise have a broken screen or device.

I ended up getting this case for mine. Doesn't block the built-in stand so you can keep using that, it has a strap on the back to make it easier to hold with one hand, a place to put the pen that makes it much harder to lose it, and a little rubber thing at the top to hold the keyboard to the screen to keep it together when moving around. Very much worth it IMO.

u/mgerbasio · 2 pointsr/Surface

I have this one:

The top half is heavy and I know the back of my SP4/SP gets warm without a cover so this probably isn't helping with heat dissipation. Covering the back of the device is pretty much common to all cases it seems so I don't know if this is better or not. It doesn't lay flat against the case, it has some ridges to lift it up which probably makes it dissipate heat better. There are holes that line up with the vent holes.

u/r0ck3r9irl · 2 pointsr/Surface

It seems like both use the same cases. I have the Kensington BlackBelt 2nd Degree case.

u/sudo_dionysius · 2 pointsr/ipad

I bought this case to carry everything in: iPad Pro with smart keyboard and khomo back cover, and I keep the pencil in the front zippered pocket along with earpods.

u/robeschi · 2 pointsr/iPadPro

I like this one because it has a place to put your Apple Pencil. I used it for quite some time until I put this on my Apple Pencil so it was easier to write with (and much harder to store/carry.)

It's slim and does exactly what it says it will. I don't have much faith in the plastic around the edges though. I will be replacing it with this once it's in stock:

I've had this same case from Khomo on my iPad Air 1 and Air 2 and never had an issue. It's built from a nice rubberized material on the bottom that is comfortable and has never broken on me.

u/LaserQuest · 2 pointsr/AppleWhatShouldIBuy

I recently bought an iPad but I need help choosing an inexpensive case cover. Which material is the best in terms of protection (falls, wear and tear)?

Option 3 : Soft TPU Bumper Edges with Hard plastic back


Actually, I'd rather not go with hard plastic as it may crack easily?

So, Option 2 or 3?

You could use the normal Smart Cover, but I've been using this:

Slim and protects the iPad on the front and back, which was important to me.

There's also this: but it doesn't protect the iPad, just the keyboard.

u/Edge767 · 2 pointsr/ipad

I'll be going with THIS one. I use the smart keyboard and this will help protect the back and look like it belongs.

Currently, I use a beige smart cover on the back. It works surprisingly well on the back of my iPad with the smart keyboard on the front. I put it on the back only while it's in my bag.

u/accreddit · 2 pointsr/ipad

The Muse case by Zugu. Got mine on Amazon for 60. Absolutely love this case. 8 viewing angles, allows the pencil to charge with the case on and has an elastic pocket to put pencil in when traveling so it doesn’t get lost. Sleep/Wake works. My iPad lives in this case when traveling.

u/AllThatJazz_777 · 2 pointsr/iPadPro

I have the new edition of this and I completely agree, hands down the best case I've ever used for a tablet. No keyboard but very sturdy and protective, and the magnets surprisingly work well to hold it at whatever angle you choose. I think unless the OP absolutely had to have a keyboard at all times with their iPad, they would really benefit from this case plus an external keyboard left in the office ✌

u/Adamfreakinant · 1 pointr/Nexus7

'That Case' as in the $50 'Premium Case'.

I forgot I tried out the Poetic Slimline too, which was pretty close to perfect, but I wanted more protection while traveling and just havent swapped it back on yet.

Thanks for saying you didn't like the Moko, reminded me I even had the Poetic Slimline anymore. Hahah

u/freshouttatime · 1 pointr/Nexus7

ordered this one for 5.95 on amazon, and got it this week.

looks good, has the magnets for the auto wake, and can be propped up. not bad for price at all

u/hnilsen · 1 pointr/Nexus7

It hasn't been released yet - due to release 20th of August. All the pictures I've got are the ones from the amazon site:

What makes this my choice (albeit I haven't personally seen it), is that it's got a hard back that covers the device, it's got a smart cover with magnets that close and turn off the screen that can also turn into a stand. And it's sleek as a motherfraker.

If it fits into the Nexus 7 as well as the THIS fits the Kindle Touch, I'm going to be a very, very happy man.

u/pfc_bgd · 1 pointr/Nexus7

I have this one. Got it about a month or so ago and had zero problems with it. Does what it's supposed to, has the wake-up magnet, Nexus 7 fits in there very nice and tight.

u/radbrad7 · 1 pointr/battlestations

This one! It's wonderful! I've been using it for about 6 months and it hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear. It also has the smart wake/sleep function for when you open and close the case. And It's super cheap! :)

u/Insaniaksin · 1 pointr/Nexus7

I don't have either of these cases, but I've been looking into one of them trying to decide which one I like more. I'm probably going to get the first one, along with this one which someone already posted, but it has the faux leather. I'll decide which one I like better from there.

Personally, this one looks better and I would prefer this one

I found this one first, but i'm not a big fan of the shiny X on the back

u/boothroyd917 · 1 pointr/Nexus7

I ordered all three kinds, it was $7.99 for all three styles.

Only differences I'm seeing between them are how the kickstand works and how much of the bezel is actually covered. But considering it's $4.99 for one or $7.99 for all three, I figured I can try them out and then either sell them or hang on to them in case one breaks.

When i was looking, nothing really stood out to me either, so i went for function over style.

It was the best i could find for the price, and i spent a bit of time looking. Best of luck to ya!

Hell I even have the original box kicking around. $140 shipped with the case and screen protector.

u/hipstergrandpa · 1 pointr/Nexus7

I think the nice thing about vanilla android devices in general is that they're a nice blank slate for developers to use (as far as I understand). I'd leave the whole version part to her, but usually people will want the latest and greatest, so in this case Lollipop. To be honest, I'd leave all of the customization up to her if you're not certain. More than half the fun of owning an Android table/phone is being able to customize it yourself in every detail.

However, one thing: get her a case if you haven't done so already. I use this one. I accidentally dropped the 1st gen one on its face and shattered the screen. This case is great because it can be a stand and protects the screen pretty well. Plus, the company is amazing as they replaced mine for free and let me keep the old case when the elastic band snapped.

Sorry for rambling, but hope you figure out what you want to do. She'll love it either way I can guarantee.

u/binkocd · 1 pointr/Nexus7

I bought the MoKo Slim Fit (link at bottom) and it has elasitc instead of a magnet. I am going to say that it can be cumbersome and the elastic hangs over the screen, since the bezel isn't that wide. I am not sure, however, if there are any technical (n7) considerations that need to be made, i.e. would mess with locking, etc. Would be interested in knowing.

u/drmacinyasha · 1 pointr/Android

So here's what I can help with:

> 1.) I’ll need to buy a 128GB SD card for the phone. From a real OEM, for reliability sake. And keep copies of all the media for the SD card elsewhere (cloud, harddrive)

Google Play Music (with or without All Access) has you covered for that music management. You can just download your library to the SD card with ease from within the app, and let it sit and download over Wi-Fi/LTE (whoo, unlimited data!) for a while. Dropbox or Google Drive have you covered for just about everything else.

> 2.) I’ll need to purchase a wireless charging compatible back for the phone. This is a bit of an issue for me, are there official options for this yet?

From a few minutes of Googling, it looks like LG has their quick circle case, but you can probably find an alternative on Amazon or eBay.

> 3.) QI chargers, seems like any cheap well-reviewed one will do

Bingo. It's a standard, like USB. Since I have a Nexus 5 and 7, I love the official Nexus wireless charger (magnets are strong enough to hold up the N5 if the charger is mounted on the side of a computer, wall, wherever). I've also got the Nokia DT-900 and DT-910 as my bedside chargers (900 for the N5, 910 for the N7 which practically makes it into a mini TV or an excellent night clock). AirDock has me covered in the car with the Nexus 5 (again, magnets ftw!)

> 4.) Planning on a DBrand Black Titanium Skin for the phone. I am not sure this will work with the wireless charging back

Shouldn't. You can put on a hard case or the like. Qi will typically go through up to about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch of case depending on your charger. I've got a case on my Nexus 7 and it charges through it just fine.

> 5.) Extra batteries from ZeroLemon/Anker if they release, OEM if not.

> How do I charge these batteries out of the phone? Or is it easier to get an external battery for emergencies.

Personally, I prefer the external battery pack method. No device lock-in (I really regret all the accessories I bought for my Galaxy Nexus and SGS4... Never doing that again) and you don't have to deal with as much shady-ness. Amazon and eBay are flooded with knock-off chargers and batteries that can ruin your day. ZeroLemon's good, but they tend to require a trade-off (no NFC, or turning your phone into a brick/tank).

> 1.) Disable iMessage on my current iPhone and probably call Apple to yell at them that my new phone isn’t working.

Test the crap out of this ASAP after switching so you don't regret it later.

> 2.) Transfer Contacts by syncing with a google account

Don't forget G+ integration. If you update your contact data on Google+, anyone who has you circled (and is in a circle you've allowed to see that info) will automatically have your contact info updated on their Android devices and via or Gmail.

> 3.) Root using Purp13’s method as found from the LG G3 sidebar. TMo’s bootloader is unlocked

Before doing that, give yourself a few days to get to know the phone. Get used to Android, get your mail and contacts and whatnot all loaded, and learn the quirks of the OS. Until you really use it hands-on for a few days, no amount of preparation is going to completely have you covered, coming from iOS.

> 5.) Titanium Backup and Greenify sound like the most important Root-Apps

I'm not personally a fan of Greenify. Disabling apps you don't want, and configuring those you do properly should be enough. Especially if you've got wireless charging going; you won't need to worry about your battery much, because any time you're not walking around or using your phone, it'll probably be on that charger getting topped off without you having to think or worry about it. I noticed this change in my usage behavior after I started using Qi.

> Titanium Backup should be able to disable all carrier/oem bloatware

T-Mobile's pretty good about bloatware, and most things you can disable without even needing root.

> 6.) ES File Explorer to manage the SD card/Files

I'd also recommend trying out Solid Explorer. It's pretty straightforward and I've gotten to really like it's cloud/network drive compatibility. Makes it a cinch to copy freshly downloaded movies from my router (poor man's NAS and download manager) to my phone/tablet before running out the door to work.

> 7.) Nova Launcher sounds like the most all-encompassing launcher

Give that Google Experience Launcher a try for a few days. Or at the very least, Google Now. It seems kinda pointless at first, but if you use Gmail and let it get to know you for a few days, it gets really nifty with its recommendations and reminders.

> 8.) Google Hangouts is the only app that handles SMS/MMS and Hangouts messages

> The Hangouts messages are an easy iMessage alternative for all my friends/family still in the iOS ecosystem

People are always amazed when I show them the ease of Hangouts on their iPhones. "It's like iMessage, but everywhere!" Chat with them from my tablet, phone, computer, their computer, their iPad, and their iPhone all at once, then call them from their iPad over their cell number to really blow them away.

> 9.) Llama sounds like a Tasker alternative that is a bit more user friendly. I don’t foresee myself needing all the functionality of Tasker so I’ll take the ease of Llama

Trigger (formerly NFC Action Launcher) is also good, depending on what you're looking to do. For example, I have it setup so that when it detects that my Nexus 5 is wirelessly charging and connected to my car's Bluetooth receiver, it starts dock mode, launches Waze, turns off Wi-Fi (so it won't try to cling to my Wi-Fi as I drive away from home and inevitably cause music buffering), turns on auto-brightness, and then undoes all of that when I get to my apartment's geo-fence.

> Twitter – Carbon/Fenix

I know it gets a lot of hate, but I like the official Twitter client (prepares to be stoned). I manage three different accounts, and unlike Plume it doesn't mix them up or lie about which account I'm replying from. Also, the real push notifications (not always-on-streaming-timeline like Plume) are kinda hard to beat.

> Facebook – Official App + Messenger

Make sure to use something like AppOpsXposed to disable their permissions if you're going to do this. Facebook and Messenger are notorious for killing battery life by hammering your GPS randomly all day. The other permissions are fairly excessive, too. If you don't want to limit their permissions, try Tinfoil instead, which is basically the Facebook mobile site in a dedicated browser so Facebook can't associate you browsing around in Chrome on a page with a Like button as you and your account.

> Browser – Chrome

Check out Link Bubble. Useful for opening links from social media sites and the like.

> Google – Maps/Drive/Docs/Sheets/Slides/Gmail/Calendar/Keep (I’m invested in google, can you tell?)

Check out Waze for navigation, too. Google Maps gets a lot of its accident and traffic reporting data from Waze since Google bought them, but it has some other useful features like letting you report (and get alerted to) cars on the side of the road, hidden police, red light/speed cameras and other annoyances. Typically I'll use Google Maps if I'm navigating somewhere for the first time (gotta love lane guidance) but if I'm taking a regular route I'll have Waze up and running. The GPS-based speedometer (why doesn't every navigation app have this?!) is nifty, too.

Lovin' that Reddit Sync dev version. Been using it for months.

Google Now's got you covered pretty well if you tell it what teams you like, depending on how much of a fanatic you are.

> 13.) Google Play all-access seems like a great subscription for music. I may stick with Rhapsody because that’s what I’m on now

Don't forget that if you have the new(er) T-Mobile unlimited data plan ($30 unlimited with 5 GB of tethering), you get Rhapsody UnRadio for free. Google Play Music All Access is also a no-brainer and probably going to get the Music Freedom treatment soon.

u/TheStinkySkunk · 1 pointr/Nexus7

It's not the prettiest case, but it's been great so far. A couple of the reviews talked about how the magnets may fall out, but Poetic seems to replace the case immediately after you contact them. And my friends who recommended buying a Poetic case after I had issues with the Asus and Google cases have had no problems with their cases. Both of them have been using them for over two years by this point.

u/wintermuteCF · 1 pointr/Nexus7

This is the one I bought, the Poetic case:

Smart cover, same type of three-fold-triangle-stand thing as the smart cover, some back protection, cheap price, and adds minimal bulk. It's the least-bulky case for the Nexus I could find.

u/NatesYourMate · 1 pointr/Android

N7 2013: I agree with you, but it's pretty easy to get past after a bit of use. I have a little case on mine, this one, (they actually sent me 2 for some reason), but anyways, it helps to prevent the speakers from being against whatever surface you set the tab down on.

Also, if you hold it landscape and don't cover the speakers then they sound pretty good.

u/nowim · 1 pointr/macsetups

Yes, I do recommend it. It fits great on the new nexus 7 and it have a very good grippy surface.

u/jonadair · 1 pointr/kindle

I got the same one in black and have been really happy with it. Fits perfect, sturdy, and isn't that much thicker.

u/the1welshman · 1 pointr/kindle

I personally have a magnetic folio case and I absolutely love it. Besides protecting your kindle, it also feels amazing in your hand and gives you better grip while reading. Also, it makes it so you just open the cover and your screen turns on, rather than needing to press the button. It may sound insignificant, but its a game changer for me. I highly recommend getting one.

Here's the one I have:

u/Darth_Moose · 1 pointr/Surface

I bought the Moko smart shell case. So far it seems pretty great, though I haven't spent much time with it as it just came in today.
I am hoping to post some pictures and a mini review soon. :)

u/threelittlebirdies · 1 pointr/Surface
u/papasmurf7 · 1 pointr/Surface

im using this one i dont know much about heat transfer or if it insulates badly, i dont do much cpu intensive stuff, but the inside of it is a plastic hard case, and the outterside is leather. and since it uses sp3's kickstand, when its opened, basically half of the surface is uncovered so i assume can still leak out there. theres also holes at the top of the case to allow the vents to spit out air too, so its not covered.

u/ilkali · 1 pointr/Surface

This one looks decent. I've been looking for such a case since I dont/cant have microsoft complete and I dont have any support from microsoft in my country. This one looks promising.

u/silly22 · 1 pointr/Surface

I dropped my Surface while it was in one of these folio cases: MoKo Ultra Slim Lightweight Smart-shell Cover Case from a height of about 3 ft. at the airport and it survived... maybe just lucky though. It's one of few case designs that integrates the kickstand into the bottom section of its back allowing full articulation. May be worth ordering two at the current price because after 7 months one of the plastic tabs broke.

So I decided to try a different style case from Moko that doesn't really allow the use of the surface kickstand, but has stronger tabs: It weighs almost the same, maybe a few grams more than the one that integrates the kickstand.

u/BoatMadeOfBananas · 1 pointr/Surface

Currently using this case. Not too heavy, but it gives it lots of protection. I cycle to university, and this case has protected my SP3 for the better part of 2 months. Has a pen holder on the top as well. Lots of colour options too.

u/personofmalice · 1 pointr/Surface

Been using it for the past week, but the MoKo Slim Shell case is really good:

Bought it to protect the magnesium back from scratches and it's great. Adds a little more bulk, keep that in mind, but so will any case.

What's great about this is that it actually uses the variable kickstand while most of the other cases obstruct it.

Closes magnetically (it won't sleep the device like the Type Cover will, fyi) and feels really secure.

Only cons I have involve the extra heft using it with the Type Cover attached, but without the keyboard it's the best.

u/EpicWolverine · 1 pointr/Surface

If you want something really rugged and don't mind losing the native kickstand, get one of the cases others have recommended like the UAG. If you'd like to keep the native kickstand, this is the only case I've found that does it right. I use the keyboard cover too (which will also protect the screen if you don't already have that), so I sliced off the cover part of that case, leaving just the back, and it works wonderfully.

u/Epsilon61 · 1 pointr/RetroPie

Depends on how hot your environment gets. Right now mine is overclocked and I haven't seen the little indicator for overheating yet during extended PSX gameplay. Right now my pi only has the cheap little heatsinks from the Vilros Kit.

However during the summer I'll have to upgrade to active cooling.

Personally I'm planning on getting this case JBtek - Amazon

u/isanyonekeepingtrack · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

How good is your 3D printer? If you need access to the GPIO just grab your rotary tool of choice and cut a hole in it. I've switch to using this case with nice Sunon 5V fans over the JBtek one.

Otherwise there's the good old JBtek Clear Acrylic case. Granted you'll need to immediately buy some replacement 5V fans because the ones it comes with suck and will die within a week.

u/Sadistic_Sponge · 1 pointr/RetroPie This guy is good, but it blocks bluetooth so you may want a dongle. I hear good things about the FLIRC, too. if you want a fan check this on, though I hear it is loud:

Make sure to pack in some thermal grease if you get a case that comes into contact with the board.

u/EtherBoo · 1 pointr/emulation

Just to clear a few things up.

> Im glad you cleared that up for me about the other SBCs. I was wondering if the other brands would be better at handling the systems the pi doesn't handle well.

Interestingly enough - ETA Prime (YouTuber) just posted a video about the MiQi SBC. It seems to be running N64 pretty nicely and he says he's going to be putting up a video soon about the MiQi and systems the Pi doesn't do very well. So while the support may not be there, it might be worth looking into, just understand that you're going to have less support for the systems you're interested in.

It might also be worth waiting for the Raspberry Pi 4, which my guess will be out within the next 3-6 months (nobody really knows when it will be out). It should have better specs and be able to handle something like N64 a little better due to better a stronger CPU. N64 development is something that is actively worked on for the Raspberry Pi where something like Dreamcast Emulation appears to be dead in the water (for example, the bug with date/time needing to be entered when loading every ROM was identified a while ago, but remains unfixed even though the fix has been identified; I'd do it myself if I knew how to code).

> So now I'm totally sold on the Pi3 and I'm chomping at the bit to place an order, but I'm still hung up on what to order with it.

The Cananakit is the most popular option. I ended up going for the basic and ordering a separate 128 GB card (but you can also get 256 GB if you're feeling like you could fill it up). The kit comes with a case, power supply, heat sinks. There are better cases you can buy, but this is a good all-in-one type price.

> I can't seem to find a clear small form factor case that has space in it for HDD AND has a cooling fan.

You're not going to want to put a HDD in it. They can add heat and the last thing you want is to add heat to this. They can already get a little hot. If you want a HDD attached, your best bet is to do it via USB. I know you don't like the idea of an external, but it's honestly the best way to go if you really want a hard drive attached. Here's an option I did find with a hard drive though, but I think you're risking overheating with this type of application:

Here are a few cases with fans attached:
Zebra Virtue, JBtek Transparent Acrylic Raspberry Pi B+ / Raspberry Pi 2 Case with External Fan (I might actually buy this one for myself), Eleduino 2015 New Version Raspberry Pi 2 mode B Transparent Acrylic Case With Fan Black.

> I have a decent gaming laptop. Could I use that to host the steam program?

You can't say you have a decent gaming laptop and not know what Steam is.

Steam supports streaming to just about any PC. There's two caveats to this though. First, you need to be hard wired. A laptop is normally wireless just because of the platform type. Second, you can't use the PC while it's streaming. You can go to the PC being streamed from and actually watch what's being played and even interfere with the game being played/streamed.

> Would having a separate account solve the problem of having an over crowded steam library?

Sort of. Again, the NES, SNES, and Genesis complete sets will run over 2k games easily (I have something like 1100 in my NES folder for Japanese only games that I included; the full US NES set is like ~700 or so.). That gets crowded, fast. Even viewing a single system with over 100 games gets crowded. Now Steam uses a flat view, so unless you split up everything manually, it's still going to get crowded.

I started to set this up and I don't recommend it unless it's for your favorite games and I'd limit it to about 10-20 per system. I'd use the Pi for a catch all for everything else.

> Another reason I want to shy away from just having a regular Pc for emulation is I want my kids to be able to play the games but I don't want them on my computer... this hosting thing seems like a great solution.

Again, Steam Link won't really help with that since they'll be able to access the computer. What don't you want them to be able to access? You should be able to block most of that with user account access. For about $500 or so, you can build a PC that should run everything up to the Wii. Hook it up to the TV and they won't be able to really do much else.

u/mr_hellmonkey · 1 pointr/RetroPie

The fan plugs right into the GPIO ports on one of the 5V pins. You can hear the fan in a dead silent room, but it's drowned out as soon as anything with sound starts playing. It's very quiet and I'm happy with it.

u/serratemplar · 1 pointr/RetroPie

I am, yea. I picked up a JBTek Transparent "case" which is really just two transparent acrylic plates with four posts (i.e. no walls) and a fan. (The case didn't come with instructions but the Amazon listing comments had instructions with photos from other customers which was a huge help.) I also got some a uxcell 25mmx25mmx15mm heatsink which I stuck on with Artic Silver thermal paste. Note that I mounted the fan pointing inwards which is the inverse of their photo, because it's better for cooling. (Same reasons you point your CPU's fans to blow in and not out.)

JBTek case:
uxcell sinks:
artic silver:

I no longer see the temp warnings. :) Didn't involve any soldering either, which made me happy.

(Sorry for the massive delay; real-life's giving me a beating.)

u/DaPlayerNinetyNine · 1 pointr/theNvidiaShield

I have the Fintie SmartShell case, and I love it! It protects the whole of the tablet as opposed to just the screen from the Nvidia official case. It's a solid plasic build with a fold-around magnetic cover that functions as a stand and a sleep/wake mechanism. It is less than half the price of the Nvidia official one! xD

I recommend this case :)

u/deathblade200 · 1 pointr/theNvidiaShield

before I say anything I should note mines rooted and I freeze anything that I don't need at the time including nvidia apps that don't need to be constantly running when I'm not using them which gives me a boost in battery...battery depends on what you do really I can get between 5 (high end games and demanding emulators) to 10 (low end games and nvidia grid) hours

as for how it feels I use this case for the best feel

I recently ordered a custom Timbuk2 bag to replace my sleeve, needed some more room and thought since I'm starting school again I'd splurge on a nice one I can use for work in a couple years too.

That said, Timbuk2 does have some smaller ones that sound like the size you're looking for. Not sure how much you want to spend but worth checking out.

u/rek-me-reksai · 1 pointr/Surface

I am using this for my sp4 m3

I can fit my charger and my display adapter in it. I just toss this in my large back for uni and had nothing happen to it, eventhough I keep heavy books in their too.
I am afraid though,that the zipper is very close to my device so I might go for the sleeve version with no zippers.
But as far as right now (3 months of usage) there are no scratches or any damage caused by zipper touching my surface.

u/graynor · 1 pointr/Surface

I bought this one for my SO.

Very similar to the Procase. Almost practically the same considering how its advertised. Just smells like dank vagina once first open it.

u/Average650 · 1 pointr/Surface

Not sure if it's what you're looking for but I have this one and I like it.

u/starwaves · 1 pointr/EDC

I carry mine (with the type cover attached) in one of these, and I really like it. Fits into my backpack easily enough, or I can carry it with the handle.

u/kiwikat88 · 1 pointr/Surface

I got the affordable Inateck Sleeve Case. It fits the SP4 with type cover nicely, though I keep the pen kind of sticking out of the front zipper pocket on it. Note I usually keep this inside of my laptop backpack for work, or a duffel bag when traveling light or visiting. So it is not my primary case/bag.

Pros: Cheap (< 20 USD), High quality materials and build, secure fit

Cons: Corners of type cover sometimes end up getting bent, wish there were a better solution for pen storage

u/Unique-Sn0wflake · 1 pointr/Surface

If you're talking about the case, This is the one I've seen

Btw if you want a cheaper one, while searching I saw some more cases with their own stands. The stand wasn't metal like this one tho, it was like a typical iPad stand where it folds to hold the device up. Just search for "surface pro 4 cases" on Amazon im sure you'll see it

u/ModRocX · 1 pointr/Surface

Mine SP4 lives in the UAG ( and occasionally comes out when I'm sitting on the couch surfing.

It's a great case - yes it'adds bulk but still way slimmer and lighter than my old laptop :)

(edit: and it get's a lot of positive comments regarding it's looks)


u/oneworld279 · 1 pointr/Revit

Hi, you meant this right? I wanted to get this but hesitated many times.

BTW, I use a SP4 i5 majorly for tether shooting and some office work (remotely) and been looking for a good surface case, can you recommend any? Looking at this UAG CASE


u/licknstein · 1 pointr/Surface

If I can make a recommendation... The Kensington Black Belt Case allows you to use the kickstand on the Surface Pro, which is better than the one in the UAG case. Still works with the type cover, holds the Surface Pen, and is a bit cheaper.

(Yes, I am biased; I worked on the engineering team who makes it).

u/NoWayIn · 1 pointr/Surface
u/Varlen · 1 pointr/Surface

Big supporter of the Kensington Second Degree case, does it need it? Probably not but I'd rather reserve MS complete for something very serious.

u/ratshack · 1 pointr/Surface

Kensington BlackBelt 2

It allows full use of the TC and kickstand. Dock2 compatible as well.

u/KevZ- · 1 pointr/Surface

I've found a similar one that is by Kensington but my only concerns with it is that there have been reviews where users have stated that it leaves a mark on surface when you remove it

u/recruiterguy · 1 pointr/Surface

This case kept me from needing to pick up a bag. Super durable, has a secure place for the pen and I get lots of compliments on it when I'm traveling. (I also put a black skin on the kickstand so it blends in perfectly.)

I normally don't put cases on my devices but I'm really happy with this one - especially how it secures the pen and keyboard when closed.

I picked up the Tomtoc 11-inch Tablet Sleeve because I needed something so I could pack the iPad Pro 11 in a bag for work. It has a pocket for the pencil and a cable. Have a bigger version from Tomtoc for my Surface Pro, the quality is really nice for the price.

Edit: I have the Apple Smart Folio (not the keyboard cover) on the iPad and it fits perfectly

u/shakeanjake · 1 pointr/ipad

I went with this one by TomToc. Almost more like a slim laptop bag. It offers good protection and has soft insides but the main reason I chose it is that it has some great pockets.

I’d get the TomToc sleeve thing from amazon

I had it and loved it, however I’d also check if the Apple Leather Sleeve is still on sale at Target, got mine brand new for $30 and LOVE IT! But for $130 it might not be worth it for you

For my 10.5, this sleeve is great -

as is this bag to carry it and more -

u/filchermcurr · 1 pointr/ipad

I've been using this one with this back on it and it fits just fine. I stick the pencil in the front pocket (well... it's also in this because I have a 'buy all the cheapish things' problem). So far everything is hunky-dory.

u/klave7 · 1 pointr/ipad

I got the Smart Keyboard as I am trying to use it as a laptop replacement-ish. But I also just picked up THIS. If Apple ever releases a 10.5" silicone back I will probably get that as well. So far on Amazon all I've seen are transparent backs (that support smart keyboard) and I would prefer something grey or black.

u/Le_Groundhog · 1 pointr/ipad

I got this one for my 11 pro

There's a very soft material inside of it. In addition, the pockets fit my charger and extra cables.

So a couple things the poetic cases are pretty awesome and so cheap that I thought they were too cheap and held of buying them for a bit.

iPad Air 3 Case (10.5 Inch, 2019), iPad Pro 10.5 Case, Poetic Flexible Soft Transparent TPU Clear Back Cover with Pencil Holder, Compatible with Apple Smart Keyboard and Smart Cover, Lumos, Clear

The default keyboard IMO is much better than people give it credit for, I have no issues typing on it or using it. Also since they haven’t changed it you can find it on sale for a lot less than msrp. Apple Pencil comes with the charging adapter so you don’t have to plug it into the iPad, and it doesn’t need to be charged all the time. Also since it is the same pencil you can find some good deals on it as well still a bit much.
Personally in the same situation I found a used iPad Pro 10.5 64gb with pencil and keyboard for 450 and have no regrets (maybe 64gb)

I just looked for something on Amazon with lots of reviews that averaged high. I got a case last year for my Pro, I didn’t like the two piece design of the Apple stuff but wanted something to cover the back when I went outside and laid it on the picnic table and such. Something similar to this

Once you find something you like the looks of you can probably find it on eBay for half price and free shipping. They will be listed under various brands, I got mine off eBay for under $10 about a year and a half ago, use it everyday.

I use a third party (ESR) smart case and no screen protector. I really can't stand screen protectors on the iPad (I've tried!), although I do have one on the phone.

JETech Case for iPad Air 3 (10.5-inch 2019) and iPad Pro 10.5, Auto Wake/Sleep, Black

u/Reiserbc · 1 pointr/ipad

I ordered this to protect my iPad for the time being, at least until better accessories are made....I was hoping for a Smart Case from Apple, but they disappointed me.

I really like how thin this case is, it’s a basic 2 angle and cheap iPad smart case but the quality is great (and even better than I expected)

u/CantGoogleMe · 1 pointr/ipad

I got the version with a holder for the pencil and it's great. Good texture, fits well, and holding up great. My only complaint would be that the covered
powe and volume buttons are a little clunky to hit, not bad at all though.

I got this one for the 10.5 -- assume they make one for the 9.7

It works well so far.

I got it's brother for the pen support:

Arriving this weekend.

  • the bonus - it hides the apple logo. :)

Use the Apple Smart Keyboard with this case: KHOMO iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Charcoal Gray Color Case - Companion Cover - Perfect match for Apple Smart keyboard and Cover.

Greatest combo there is. The case matches the keyboard in color perfectly and just like the Apple Pencil compared to other styluses - there is no better keyboard for the iPad than the Smart Keyboard. It’s so well integrated and the keyboard is great (that said I wish it had a little less key travel and was a little louder but that’s just me). And that case is cheap and works perfectly.

I bought this Khomo Charcoal Gray case from Amazon. It's only $12.95 shipped with prime.

It matches the Smart Keyboard cover almost exactly. And I mainly wanted a back cover to help protect the camera lens that sticks out. I already scratched my desk at work when I dragged it as I picked it up. And when I take the keyboard cover off when using it at home, it still provides protection and some grippyness when holding it.

The iPad cover is very nice. It's actually better than the one for the 9.7 (at least for me) since the magnets seem stronger. For the back, I got this case which is surprisingly good quality (iPad Pro 10.5 Inch Charcoal Gray Color Case - Companion Cover - Perfect match for Apple Smart keyboard and Cover. It has a very close color match to the silicone cover, and a similar feel ( although it's not silicone, the rubberized plastic feels very nice.)

I use [this] (

I found it a great fit around my Smart Keyboard.

u/CastleBravo99 · 1 pointr/ipad

I'm in the same boat, I've got the Air 3 and I want to use the Apple keyboard but also have protection for the back. Searching this sub, I found this case:

Looks like it is exactly what I'm looking for, and even provides protection when you take just the keyboard off.

The key is to have a cheap shell to put them on. I have this one and it was well worth the $12 I paid for it to protect the back of the ipad that’s not covered by the Smart Keyboard.

u/Solie_DerpWaffel · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

It’s a great stylus, love mine. On a side note, the ZUGU muse case has the best stylus storage implementation I’ve seen in a iPad Pro 2018 case to date. It’s definitely worth the ~$60-70 price tag (depending on size of iPad) imo. Tons of adjustment for tilting and the reviews are stellar (I own one as well, definitely recommend)

u/Ragazzimus · 1 pointr/ipad

I have the same fears and doubts. Most cases seem to be extremely fragile on their own, let alone with an apple pencil attached/wirelessly charging. I'm currently looking at the SUPCASE UB Pro Series and the Muse Case.

The muse seems great to work with, but seems to lack protection.
The SUPCASE seems to have great protection, but kinda unbalanced when standing.

u/unitedstatesoftyler · 1 pointr/iPadPro

As far as accessories go, I definitely recommend the Apple Pencil. I personally didn't go with the smart keyboard - instead, I opted for a foldable bluetooth keyboard. Others swear by the Apple Keyboard, but I just couldn't afford it.

I've heard amazing things about the Zugu Muse Case, but I personally got the Ztotop Case.

I wound up going with the 11" iPad Pro because it felt better? I recommend going to an Apple Store/Best Buy/Costco/etc., and just handling both devices IRL. I thought I wanted the 12.9", but after holding it for a while, it felt too big.

u/LostInInaka · 1 pointr/ipad

Check out the the Muse case by Zugu, should cover most of those bases (except for #4)

iPad Pro Case

I have to say this is one of the best cases you can ever get, just check out the reviews. Study enough to protect your investment but slim and stylish. I use this along with the Apple magic keyboard 2. I have tried others but I keep going back to the Apple keyboard. It connects quickly, battery life is amazing, you can use shortcuts (including the top function keys). You won’t regret the Apple keyboard. It’s small enough that it doesn’t bother me and the space in my backpack and it’s not always attached. I don’t need it all the time.

Link if anyone else is curious.

u/xrabbit · 1 pointr/ipad

of course! because it's laptops!

tablets require other level of protection. this case is good for laptops, but it's not protect from bend and this make it unusable for tablets. modern tablets can be bend easily, so you want to carry it, you have to think of sufficient level of protection.

what the author of the video do is like working with knifes or other sharp staff and then whine if he cut his finger.


if i will be the owner of 12.9 ipad then i will use something like this

u/jamesgiantpeach1992 · 1 pointr/iPadPro

Zugu makes a really nice Italian leather one. It also has magnets built it so you can hang it on the refrigerator or something magnetic. Has spot for 1st gen and 2nd gen Apple Pencil

u/thatwaszen · 1 pointr/iPadPro

I'm using this "paperlike" screen, but only because it provides enough friction to make my writing and drawing less slippery:

And I'm using this case:

That's about all one can do. Once you handle the iPad Pro for a while, you'll realize how "unbendable" it is. It's pretty solid. Just treat it reasonably carefully and you shouldn't have a problem.

Reviews highly recommended this one for good reason. I am more than happy with it.

Oi so expensive:/

I’m thinking of getting ESR iPad 9.7 2018/2017 Case, Lightweight Smart Case Trifold Stand with Auto Sleep/Wake Function, Microfiber Lining, Hard Back Cover Compatible for The Apple iPad 9.7 iPad 5th / 6th Generation,Black

u/seslor · 0 pointsr/ipad

This is all you need. Get a smart case with it from Apple. Amazing case that I genuinely think about how happy I am with it on a daily basis.

Edit to add: You don't need the smart cover with the keyboard. The regular cover works perfect and adds virtually no size at all.

I've had this Moko for over a year and it's doing well.
