I've just received the AmazonBasics 7" case
http://www.amazon.co...ils_o02_s00_i00
It fits snuggly, but the corner strap and case lip does make pressing the power button fiddly.

If Amazon wanted they could easily make this a smart case with a magnet and it'd be perfect for it.

Pictures https://plus.google....525442392769937, one showing how the buttons are a little obscured.

Anyone received any cases yet and can anyone recommend anything?

I'm finding the silver bezel all the way round a little uncomfortable with its sort of v-shape, so could do with something to cover. (why didn't they curve/smooth it off?)

Would love Incipio to make a 'feather' type skin for the back with a smart cover type front ala my iPad. :P

Having used mine in that Amazon case, I'd say its pretty 'ok', the way they've hinged it makes it quite a bit thicker though.

I'd like more of a shell case too, with a smart cover though, then it wouldn't matter if it obscured the power button.

I don't like the 'feel' of the edge on my fingers when I hold it either, waiting for a nice case tho which doesn't add too much bulk.

Using this one from Amazon - http://www.amazon.co...ils_o00_s00_i00

Nice snug fit, all the right cutouts, can be used as a stand in landscape mode & it has the magnets to switch the screen on & off when you open & close it.

Not keen on any of those. They all look bulky. Some protection would be nice, although it fits very nicely in my back pocket while it's naked.

The reviews state that the magnets are in the wrong place for auto-sleep on that one. I've gone for a brown Luvtab one from ebay, is a couple of quid more than yours though.

I have this case from ebay, for only a fiver it's brilliant.

Fits well, and is not thin enough to be useless if your keys etc are pressed against it, well recommended. It also arrived quicker than the 5-11 days advertised.

I bought this from CEX for £12, I've got it all up and running using my otg connector and using Splashtop HD all works really well.
Not much use for carrying Nexus around though as there is nothing to prevent it sliding out, but all right for protection around the home.
Very chunky with keyboard and Nexus 7.

I ordered one of these and it was missing the sleep sensor magnet altogether. The only magnets are for holding it closed.

It has been sent back and the supplier is sending out a second generation replacement, which by all accounts sorts out the above and is better fitting. Not got it yet so can't comment on the updated version.

Hi all
Received a black Luvtab case from Amazon today, really impressed much better than I was expecting for the price.

Cheers, Paul

I ordered a few bits from Amazon for my Nexus 7 and received some of it today,

I ordered a fold out stand (pictured) and a set that included a silicone back (pictured), screen protector and deckchair style stand. I also have a neoprenecase on the way to slip that into and a USB OTG cable.

Loving my stand and case so far, left my other stand at home next to my computer so I always have one for travel and one for home. Been doing some writing in the pub with my HP Touchpad Bluetooth keyboard. :)

I will be attempting the hinge method to apply my screen protector later. Wish me luck.

Chris

I liked the look of the Luv Tabs case most of all. Ordered a couple from from Amazon for my daughters and my own tablet and loving it.
I found that It doesn't add too much bulk to the tablet, plus the sleep facility in the cover a nice added bonus as well as the multiple position stand. The latter which I find comfortable as a handle when viewed in portrait mode.

I applied my screen protector using the hinge method and its worked out almost perfectly. Two spots of dust and both are off in the bezel area. No air pockets. Ecstatic,

As such I had no qualms in letting my young niece loose on it today to play Kinectimals and use the KungFu Panda App. :)

My OTG cable and slip case have now been shipped also, very happy. :)

I initially went to a Carphone Warehouse to grab the £5 deal, which had sold out. So instead I plumped on http://goo.gl/lcnUj which was good but not great, awesome protection but a bit of a pain to open and close and the corner tabs got in the way of turning the device off. Got home and found a video review of http://goo.gl/oL06Z which I ordered.

Once received I found it to be exactly what I wanted (looks very similar to the LuvTabs cover a lot of you have mentioned). The SmartPower function works well and the reverse folds nicely to make a desk stand. Service was good (next day delivery as promised), but it seems to be out of stock at the moment.

Just my 2p
