A few weeks ago, I did the unforgivable and dropped my iPad on concrete out of all possible surfaces! So that you won’t feel the same gut wrenching feeling like I did when I saw the damage, I’ve been on the hunt to help you guys find the best possible protection for your iPads. (By the way – my precious iPad luckily survived. The corner that got damaged but it isn’t noticeable with a case).
First in line, here’s a look at my week’s experience of using the 360° Rotating iPad Case by Everything Tablet.
Design & Features
Available in a few different colours for the iPad 2, 3 and 4, the 360° range includes Baby Blue, Baby Pink, Black Carbon (my choice), Gun Metal and Orange. It’s made of PU leather and has a microfibre lining on the inside to keep your display clean.
Unlike many iPad cases on the market, the 360° has three different viewing angles and flexibility to work in portrait and landscape mode; making it a really user-friendly case. If you’re a media junkie (like me) who watches YouTube videos or entire movies on your iPad, you’ll find this feature really useful because you simply adjust the angle of the iPad rather than yourself!
Another clever little detail about this case is the elasticated strap that you can quickly and easily wrap around the iPad so that the cover doesn’t slip open unexpectedly and let dirt get on to the screen. Considering that I normally throw my iPad in to my bag along with a bunch of my other stuff, it was a nice little feature to be able to secure the case shut.
The 360° has a hard back and the front cover has a thicker, padded feel to it than other iPad cases. Truth be told, the reason my iPad got damaged in the first place was because my thin leather cover was flimsy and wasn’t padded enough to protect it from impacts – so this case definitely gets a thumbs up for the solid build quality.
In terms of the viewing angles, the slots on the inside of the front cover are deep and dense enough to hold the iPad upright in the position you set it in, meaning you won’t constantly have to be adjusting it either.
When you consider that you can pick up half-decent cases on eBay and Amazon for the £15 mark – the Everything Tablet 360° is a little more expensive at £24.99. However, when you consider the build quality and features mentioned above though, the slightly higher price point is more than justified.
Everything Tablet 360°: The Bottom Line
When you consider the cost of an iPad, paying £25 is a small price to pay for peace of mind. The convenience of 3 viewing angles, portrait and landscape orientations and a thick & well designed case make the 360° a very strong candidate to protect your investment – especially if you’re shopping around at a lower price point.
