Ordered this product online and was absolutely stunned at the lack of quality and protection this cover provides. I am also absolutely stunned Samsung would even put their name on this product.
This book cover fits perfectly onto the Note 8. It is a snap-on design. It's light and stylish, but that's where the positives end. My main concern is the stand is poorly designed. The front cover flips back and is suppose to stick to a magnet on the back. The magnet is so weak that it doesn't hold and the tablet falls over. Secondly, the cover protects against scratches to the front and the back of the tablet, but not the sides. Also, not seeing much protection if it is dropped. In my opinion, I am not seeing any justification for the premium price of this tablet cover. So disappointed. I love my Note 8 but am frustrated I cannot find a decent cover for it.
This product is a bit expensive, but it does offer a fair amount of protection. It has a slit in the top as if expecting a speaker or as if the design was just taken straight from the design of the S3 or S4 flip cases?! The only thing that I wish was that it had other directions that it could support the tablet.
I purchased this a couple of days ago and thought there was a factory defect which cause the one of the stand positions not to hold. I then exchanged it, and pretty much got the same problem: --> When placing in stand postion (the more vertical one of the 2 available positions), it simply does not hold. The flap closest to the inside edge is supposed to lay flat against the back of the tablet, but I wasn't able to and neither were 3 assistants from the department store I purchased it at!!! It just kept on popping up! --> Another problem worth noting is that the auto wake/sleep function is not reliable as the part of the cover that affects this feature sometimes does not sit tightly against the screen - so it keeps the tablet powered on even though the cover is closed!
