At Spigen SGP Leinwand covers longish history and in a similar format the company lets out this device since unusual iPad. Moreover, it very well showed itself(himself) with the best representatives of competing camp. For example, in a past I tested that for Galaxy Tab 7.7 Samsung, representing, as I will hide in a similar cover of iPad mini if the Apple lets out it. In those days about it timid hearings only walked. Well, I had a possibility to execute dream, but here is how it came true? About it, also about unusual addition for a tablet and iPhone in the form of the iron Home button read below.
Classics in the reduced format
Really for tablets the company packed a traditional cover in rather traditional boxing with composition of PET plastic, a high-quality cardboard and good-quality polygraphy with fashionable effects:
In such boxes the company packs many products years one and a half. It is curious when to expect the next redesign?
In a line of Spigen SGP Leinwand three options of the covers which are cardinally different not only only by color and a structure of skin are offered. There is a firm nubuck of light brown color, dark skin with a big structure and brown skin with smaller and smooth structure. Any of options is quite good in own way.
Snutri all of them are trimmed by something similar on suede. By the way, an external covering — it truly a genuine leather and a smell at it respective. On the fan, but it is pleasant to me.
As more beautiful I consider vintage option from a nubuck. Not including that, it is very pleasant to the touch and does not slide at all in hands. Discrepancy only that eventually the nubuck starts to be salted and grow bare. Finally it becomes smooth and even more vintage if it is so possible to be expressed, but in process any time the device will look not so representatively.
Directed attention to fascinating idea with packing when for силикагеля in a slice of foam rubber simulating a tablet the special place is cut out. The trifle, as though, and pleasantly that this bag does not dangle anywhere in a box, and lies in own bed and regularly absorbs water if such suddenly will get inside.
For personal testing and use I nevertheless chose convenient dark option of a cover which perfectly is in harmony with a black tablet.
Whether see — it is a traditional cover book with a folding cover, but unlike options for full-size iPad, in given to only three section that in certain situations causes difficulties, but about it we will have a talk it is sensitive later.
Plus of myagenky internal furnish in comparison, for example, with plastic in Ozaki O! Coat-Slim-Y that if between a tablet and a cover any grain of sand will get, it will simply be pressed in pile and does not leave traces on a tender back of the device.
Though, there is also a minus. In a case with plastic, and is more exact polycarbonate, tablet placement in a cover takes second — silk, and is ready. In Leinwand I pushed a device of minutes 5 precisely. As though the tablet also laid down, but look, and the cover is sensitive caved in and finally edges adjoin not absolutely. Generally, it was necessary to suffer and turn in a little a device снутри. But, eventually, iPad mini laid down inside as poured in. Respectively, if will face discrepancy, say «not налазит» — do not despair. Simply аккуратненько turn in edges, then press them to a tablet and so take.
But later will not desire a tablet to take. Perfectly cover посиживает. Well and genuine leather to the touch horror as притяна. It warm, house, whether that. As if you hold the loved starenky daily log in leather cover or the book.
Still bigger similarity to the book appropriates cunning fastening of a cover — it though утолщает a design, but beautifully looks and the successful fellow improves:
Naturally, to all ports, hardware buttons and technical openings there is a full access, all obmysleno and is made very much аккуратненько:
From decorative parts there is only a firm logo on the back panel:
Also direct attention that a side from the monitor the small. Taking in attention introduction of myagenky skin — this achievement. But, as I mentioned above, to put on a cover a tablet rather difficult. And here to remove it it is possible without troubles for some seconds.
As a support there are only two options of use of a cover: with a small inclination for the press on the screen keyboard and something average between a photoframe in firm Smart Cover and a keyboard mode. To establish above to me it it was not possible — all design is filled up.
In comparison to the same Ozaki O! Coat-Slim-Y or Dublon Multislight Britain set of options of a support obviously скудноват.
Not including that, still there is one feature. If to detain a tablet in a portrait mode one hand, it is more convenient to do all this right. In that case the cover can be bent how it is shown on a photo below:
In the left hand it will either dangle, or to rest against a palm:
At other analogs of that difficulty is not present, because there the cover consists of 4 sections and it develops precisely in half, without stirring a palm.
But that from Leinwand not to take away, so it is the unsurpassed level of protection provided by a cover. Skin and an internal material perfectly демпфируют blow, corners rather thick and a tablet simply and without consequences will endure even falling with small heights on a firm surface, not to mention casual blows.
As to device operating experience, generally it positive. It is necessary to consider mass of a cover in 130 g. In one hand a 430-gram tablet to detain not so with comfort, as 300-gram. Though the successful fellow essentially improves. Also enough promptly you get used to detain the device the right hand that the cover did not dangle.
On quality of skin of Spigen SGP Leinwand — it not Vaja, but too anything. Not including that, the considered device essentially easier, slightly more compactly, well and costs, at least, twice cheaper.
Absolutely precisely I recommend it to those who prefers a formfaktor of a cover and natural materials, but it is not ready to pay a half of the price of iPad for elite covers and would not wish to make heavier mass of a tablet twice. If normally treat plastic and polyurethane, then direct attention to Ozaki O! Coat-Slim-Y. To itself better a device in such formfaktor yet did not find.
- high-quality leather;
- excellent physical protection;
- rather small weight in comparison to other analogs.
- it is not so steady in a support mode for video viewing;
- it is uncomfortable to keep the left hand in a portrait mode because of a cover hanging down or resting against a palm;
- it is rather difficult to put on a tablet.
Question cost on the official website — $73.
Home in metal
In a set of delivery of certain covers of Spigen SGP as a prize brings multi-colored silicone stickers on the Home button. Somehow I tried them to use, but at all was not impressed and promptly unstuck. Though my certain friends such very much like to reap comfortably, say, convex and so on. And in one of families, where some iPhone, the acquaintance uses this sticker promptly to define own phone when it comes into the hands of kids together with a father’s similar device.
Nevertheless, silicone somehow бедненько looks on the Home button, but already there is also a candidate in the form of an iron sticker and if is more exact, dural. Moreover, in a delivery set already three such buttons:
By the way, not so long ago the company a little updated this device and заместо the pink button began to put the reddish. Dark and silvery remained without configurations.
Actually, not including the 3rd stickers in a box more anything also is not present:
The benefit, difficulties with a sticker of this device does not appear. The main thing is good to be tried on, that the small square lay exactly and finally that result will turn out here:
Looks really cool, and here on feelings — it is necessary to get used after the concave button to the convex. To the touch metal, naturally, much better, than silicone and even unique plastic of the button. But direct attention that the button not aflush, as though soars over a tablet:
It has rather thick sticky layer, and the button is a little larger than an opening where Home is drowned. In general, it not discrepancy, but when using cover in the manner of that is considered above, can be casual pressing.
Having a little played, I nevertheless unstuck a ridiculous device that was not so difficult, but efforts should be put. Even was afraid, it seems, not to tear off the Home button together with a sticker. Make Spigen SGP this product on the Home size and aflush, to pick out it it would be unreal. It is not so myagenky silicone, and rigid and not especially bending aluminum.
For three stickers it is necessary to give $10. The small sum, but I personally from them do not see utility. Though, this matter of taste. Someone likes concave Home, and someone wishes tests and ease in pressing.
- aluminum pleasant to the touch;
- if the sticker bothered, it is rather simple for removing, and later to paste back;
- tremendous external shape.
- the click is felt is sensitive more awfully;
- incorrect operations of the button when using cover book.
