  • Review: Snugg Kindle 4 Case

    Posted on March 15th, 2013 Andy Parkes No comments

    Following my post about my recent Kindle purchase I was asked if I’d review a case for that’s available at the The Snugg website.

    Case Packing

    The case is made of black leather which makes it sturdy enough to keep your Kindle safe. The inside is made from a soft fabric which should keep the screen safe. After the first day I had to give the screen a wipe as it was covered in “fluff” but after that is was fine so I’d put that down to it being new.

    All of this doesn’t add too much bulk to the overall size of the Kindle either which can only be a good thing.

    There is a strap that clips onto the front to keep the case closed when it’s not in use.

    In terms of features?

    The bottom straps are fixed so it holds the device in place pretty firmly so there is no danger of it dropping out. The elasticated straps at the top make it easy to put in and out.

    There is also a large elastic strap to slide your hand into when the case is open and folded around the back to give that extra bit of grip when you’re holding the Kindle.

    You can also clip the front cover into a slot on the back which turns the case into a stand for hands free reading! A quick change in device settings to rotate the screen obviously helps here. You do have to be careful not to make it topple over but it’s a nice touch and could be useful on long train journeys.

    Overall it’s a decent case. I haven’t used the hand strap at the back all that much but in all honesty that’s because the case doesn’t add that to size so it’s still comfortable to hold.

    You can get the case from The Snugg website. It’s currently £24.99.
