Read some reports it is tough to get it open or propped.
To open the flap was really tight, but the case is breaking in quite nicely and it's getting easier.

To unhook it to prop it up is no problem at all.

There is a very detailed thread about cases already. It's stickied at the top of the forum. But, to make it easier, here's a link:

Probably one of the best cases I've seen for the N7 thus far. It feels pretty sturdy and I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for it, either ($25 + Free Shipping). I absolutely love it:

Just came today. Cheap but functional. I like that the inner holder detaches to be used as a simple case. It doesn't swivel like other 360 cases, but rather the velcro detaches to change orientation. The detachable inner case has speaker holes, the outer case/cover doesn't, but the sound still comes out okay. The inner case definitely adds some bulk bu I like that I can use it independently of the outer cover. The only think that worries me is that the velcro will wear out. For $7 the inner case alone seems worth it.

Close to sleep works fine

I didn't order a case off amazon, I tried to find it at a store in USA and had a heck of a time finding anything made for nexus 7. Just a ton of Ipad and kindle cases, and a few nooks.
I got lucky and found a few accessories at officemax and got this case
Google Nexus 7 FitFolio-Harbor Blue
I like it so far, has sleep wake functions, and is fairly slim.
What is funny, I tried looking at the speck website, and they don't even have nexus 7 listed for cases.

I picked up a Targus Kindle Fire case at Marshalls for $5.00. It was a bit tough to get to the power and volume controls so I just cut out a small area with a pen knife and now it fine.

Not bad for $5.00

Pretty sure this is what I'll end up with. I want to make sure that I end up with the 3rd generation one, because it sounds like they went through some growing pains with the first models.

What about the rooCASE: Ultra Slim Vegan Folio Case?

Here it is on Amazon for under $16: Amazon Link

Here's a video review: YouTube

I like how it has a Smart Cover that actually seems to close all the way when it is closed. It seems to match/line up with the rest of the case when closed.

I like how the corners are covered, as well as most of the sides.

One big thing that looks good is that there is a large cut-out where the camera is. This is good because the case won't interfere when pulling down the notifications menu.

And, it has multiple degrees of viewing, and there's velcro to make sure it doesn't slide out or slide around.

So, I'm leaning toward this one - does anything like any other ones more than this one?

I've also found these:
  1. WENYI Case
  2. EXACT Leather Folio
  3. SUPCase

I bought one of these from EBay
9/$14.
It has a kickstand, and holds the N7 very securely. Also the keyboard is actually nice to type on.

Anyone find a case that REPLACES the N7 back cover? I've pulled it off before and it takes about a minute to just pop it off, it would be awesome and save a lot of thickness if they made one just like the Galaxy Note 2 one which replaces the battery cover and has a flap attached. I know it would probably void the warranty, but I don't think I'd care much with these being as cheap as they are, plus who will know if you snap the original case back on before sending it in.

Not Nexus specific but I'm currently using a Pelican 1150 case 8.18" x 5.68" x 3.62" to hold the Nexus accessories and the device itself for a bomb proof (literally) mobile photo editing solution. Since it's the same price as Pelican's tablet specific case and has much higher build quality it was kind of a no-brainer. Got a silicone skin and a screen protector for the device itself. Now... if I can only get root to play nice with 4.2...

Default Great inexpensive case

I bought a couple of these for my wife and myself. The wake sleep function works well with no sleep with the cover folded behind. Hard to beat for less than $10. A Velcro flap holds it in and if cinched up tightly fits snugly. Still being careful but this is better protection than some I've seen.

Oh and with the double row of holes for the speaker, the sound is good.

Am still looking for a case like the Marware Micro Shell, have one of those on my Kindle Fire and it is just right. Hard plastic on back and all sides and a cover that is soft to the screen and plastic to the outside world. Cover folds to prop the Fire in landscape but folds out of the way when reading with no tabs, catches or flaps to be in the way. Contacted Marware today and was told no Nexus 7 after being told it's coming a couple of months ago (guess iPad / iPhone owners have more money to spend). Anybody seen one like that?

After reading horror stories of cracked Nexus 7 screens from being dropped, I bit the bullet and also got me one of those Gumdrop cases.





Painfully pricey at $49.95, it does however offer me peace of mind. Specially since its my 10 yr. old son who uses it most of the time to play games.

I understand some people need the extra protection, but I can't handle putting something so bulky on any of my devices. I picked up my N7 today at OfficeMax, and it was the last one they had in stock.

My Amzer case and ArmorSuit screen protector came in the mail today. Not impressed with the Amzer but it should do it's job nicely. Put it all in a Pelican 1150, which is currently about the same price or cheaper than the smaller tablet specific case, go figure. I put pics and details up on my blog.

Kiss LOVE my Speck Fitfolio

(Sorry, I'm too-new a member to post a link. But Amazon has this case, which I am delighted with.)

Speck Products Fitfolio Tablet SPK-A1628
Nexus 7 FitFolio in Harbor Blue

My Nexus 7 fits into the mostly-plastic clip-on back, and the smooth, soft, fake leather wraps around to the front. Uses a plastic (but very solid-seeming) clip to hold the case closed. All the "fittings" are immediately accessible because they're not covered by the plastic part of the shell. (In fact, the cut-outs are sloped to allow easy access.) The Nexus is very easy to remove, but is very solidly held.

It has four indents in the cover to let you change the angle of the (landscape) viewing -- but nothing to use for portrait (it stands up fine though). I keep the cover on when I'm desperately running and jumping in Temple Run, but it doesn't get in the way.

It has the magnet-thingie-- but I haven't figured out yet how to use it.

Haven't dropped it yet. Don't plan on it. {wink} Very slim but the hard case seems protective. My mom (89-yrs-old) just ordered the same case in red for HER Nexus 7! (My plan is to print out a photo of the TARDIS on vinyl paper and cover the case-front (well, the 2/3rds width to the stitching; I think the bending of the case will wear out the vinyl?)

I also have ordered a Google Nexus 7 Tablet Slim Fit Leather Case (Light Blue) with Smart Cover Function by Supcase (TM) - B62; but I can't imagine wanting to replace the Speck one. (Oh, the Speck was $29.43 with free shipping/Amazon Prime; the Supcase is $15.98 including shipping from Brillotech

Default Do not get my case....

I purchased this one and am sending it back:

Rotating Google Nexus 7 Case with Multi-angle Vertical and Horizontal Stand and Smart On/Off switch-Black

Amazon.com: Rotating Google Nexus 7 Case with Multi-angle Vertical and Horizontal Stand and Smart On/Off switch-Black: Computers & Accessories

The front side leather edges interfere with pressing the back, home, and 3'rd key (whatever that 3'rd key on the right is called).

Now, I am looking for another case that allows rotating (Portrait AND Landscape) mode.

The iBlason for my iPad Mini that I returned was perfect - nothing covered the front, and it rotated. However, on their Nexus version they have leather covering the front.

I have the iBlason thin folio case and love it. It only does the easle thing in portrait though.

Those front pieces that cover parts of the front of the device are why I can't see getting one of these. Too bulky and very bothered by any interference with movement on the screen.

Some people want a case to prop up the tablet in portrait and landscape. The iBlason folio only does landscape. However, the folio also does not get in the way of using the device. The complaint about the case interfering with the three soft keys was for a different iBlason case. I love the one I got and fully recommend the slim folio by iBlason.

Black Luxury Multi Function Standby Case with Built-in: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Cheap and cheerful, it'll do the job until I can find something that will add a little more protection/doesn't look cheap.

YooMee black leather sleeve. Soft Italian like leather. Perfect fit. $7 + free ship. I only need protection when on the go and for storage. Use it raw.

I assume you mean this one:

It caught my eye this morning when I was looking for a new case. I currently have something very similar to this:

Amazon.com: Blurex Ultra-Slim Case for Google Nexus 7 inch Tablet -- With built in Multi-Angle Stand + Premium Screen Protector Film (Clear),black: Computers & Accessories

And although its good, I want something a bit thinner.

One thing I can't stand is cases that cover most of the front bezel like this:

Amazon.com: Google Nexus 7 Tablet Slim Fit Leather Case (Black) with Stand by Supcase -Black, Sapphire Blue, Green, Purple, Light Blue, Deep Pink, Deep Blue, Red, Pink, Yellow, White: Computers & Accessories

So the poetic one seems to fit most of my criteria. For anyone who has it, how is it as a stand? I don't often prop it up but on occasion I need to. Also, is it very lightweight and thin?

Thanks!

I would avoid the poetic version. It's ok but after a month of use the seams for the joints are cracking and it's a pain to keep it standing up. The protection is great though.

I have the poetic, and love it. I'v only had it for a couple weeks, but it is holding together well for me so far. I don't expect any case to remain pretty, that's why I have a case on there: to take the abuse and protect the device.
The poetic stands well in both positions, but the higher angle in not as stable as the lower. Simple physics really. Slim, love the cover, stays closed and flat, auto wake works perfect, Andy decal (ebay) looks nice on it too.
I find mine was very worth the money spent.

Thanks AtheistRev, I'm 99% sure I'm gonna get one. One more question if you'd be so kind.

How well does the front cover fold back? I often have the device in my hand with the front cover folded against the back.

I picked up a moko case from amazon and so far I love it works great, only thing I don't really like is the need for the elastic strap but other then that it works good and my nexus still fits in my back pocket
Of course they come out with a carbon fiber case after I get mine. http://www.amazon.com/MoKo-Automatic-Protective-Multi-angle---Lifetime/dp/B008FLYROG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1355316071&sr=8-4&keywords=nexus+7+case

Does this answer your question?





Fits well in my hands. I like to hold it landscape for thumb-action.

I got this from Amazon Japan and I find it very slim and handy, also it has the auto awake feature but there is a small problem, when I bend it totally flat under the screen upon opening the magnet seems to be tough.. it turns off again! so when I use it I refold it again upon opening. here is a photo and link...

I bought this one on Amazon Japan and found it very good.
When I open it and fold the upper surface bellow the lower surface the auto awake feature re-functions again and turns the device off..so I fold it half beneath the device instead of a flat fold.
here is a link ...
