rooCASE Tablet Cover – Review & Compare
There were two cases that I was particularly interested in – the rooCASE signature Origami SlimShell and the new 360 Rotating Dual-View? Being the indecisive person I am, I had a horrible time trying to decide which one to get. So, I got both. I figured that I’m not the only one who has a hard tie deciding and thought a good side-by-side comparison was in order.
I went with the Origami SlimShell Case Cover for my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ and with the 360 Rotating Dual-View Detachable Stand Case for my Apple iPad Air. Dimensions weren’t the same since they were for different devices but I could still compare the material and functionality.
Both cases were very impressive and did what they were supposed to well. I wouldn’t say that either was better than the other but it all comes down to what you want in a case. If you want a cover that is lightweight and that stands up in 2-3 positions, then the Origami SlimShell is the right choice. If you want more options in viewing positions and angles, prefer a sturdier build, and like having a strap to secure the tablet when holding it, then the 360 Rotating Dual-View is the way to go.
Again, it all boils down to personal preference. I’ll have a review up of each case soon but, in the meantime, here’s a direct comparison of the case specifications for the Origami SlimShell and the 360 Rotating Duel-View (both for the iPad Air):
