Excellent leather work and tooling. Secure not system of loops and elastic bands to hold the iPad in place is lacking. I removed all of them including the metal brackets and used double sided heavy tape. Looks much better and more minimalistic. With the current design, there is no way it won’t block part of the screen corners. Also keeps you from being able to use an Apple Pencil. Otherwise Great craftsmanship and good built in stand design.
I love Oberon Design products. Excellent quality. Unique designs. Beautiful products.
I am so thrilled with my second Oberon cover. Nine years ago, I purchased a red hummingbird pattern cover for my keyboard kindle, I use it every week and it still looks new. This time I purchased a teal hummingbird pattern cover for my iPad 2 mini. I was told that covers for the iPad 2 mini had been discontinued, but that the Oberon cover for the ipad 4 and 5 mini might fit. So I took a chance, purchased it, and it fits nice and snug. The camera hole doesn’t line up, but you can slide the device over a bit to take a picture. For now it’s a tiny bit stiff to fold closed, but it will break in after more use, and then to, there’s the elastic loop to hold it closed. It is made of top of the line materials and the workmanship could not be better. An absolutely magnificent beautiful cover. So well worth the price. You will be so happy with this cover. Just do it !!
This s not my first Oberon cover. Once again I am not disappointed. Oberon products are always of superb quality and give your device everything you need: protection, good looks and if you want your ereader to feel like a book (a lot of people do), this is definitely the cover for you. No they aren’t cheap, but that is because this leather is the real deal. It isn’t PU leather or thin split hide. This is proper leather tooled with beautiful designs, in rich colors and with quality pewter accents. One quick note, which may be of interest to the Oberon designers as well as their customers... I actually bought this iPad Mini 4 cover in the hope that it would fit my Boox Nova 2, which is a 7.8” screen eInk device for which there are very few available covers. This iPad Mini 4 case is a perfect fit! I even used the nice little charm Oberon always send you, with a little superglue, to cover the camera hole, which you need for the iPad Mini, but not for the Boox ereader. Always great quality from Oberon. There is nothing else quite like their device covers anywhere on the market. If you are reading this review you must be thinking about getting one... go ahead and treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
This is my second purchase of an IPad mini cover from Oberon. My first cover bought years ago still looks as good as it did the day I received it. Will never purchase another brand.
This makes I think 8 covers I have ordered from Oberon...there is a reason I have ordered that many ...THEY ARE THE BEST!!! I Love this one as much as I did the first!
the color and the pattern are both beautiful
Wife absolutely loves the iPad case. The only drawback is that the case occasionally obscures the camera. One simply needs to adjust the position of the iPad.
