Customer Reviews for Galaxy Tab 3 8.0" Book Cover, Black

Galaxy Tab 3 8.0" Book Cover, Black

The new Tab 3 (8.0) Book Cover is extremely durable, protecting all corners and sides. It’s also extremely sleek and form fitting so it doesn’t add any bulk and weight. And a new quick and easy- to-open stand lets you place your Tab 3 (8.0) in a more comfortable position for easy viewing.

I really like this cover. It's not as bulky as so many other covers out there. I never use the stand-up feature so I can't comment on that but I would highly recommend this cover for you Galaxy Tab 3.

Good product overall, was expecting more, especially at this price.
The camera lens did not line up with the hole on the case, my lens is at the side and the case hole is in the middle

Pros: Durable, Lightweight, excellent finish
Cons: pricey
You can spend a lot less $$, but this is the highest quality and slimmest case available. When you fold the cover back for reading it is very comfortable to hold, while less expensive cases can be uncomfortable.
If you want the best, this is it!

If you are going to use this cover to support the Tab in the horizontal position for hands free use, it will fall over if you tap the screen. The front cover does not have a strong magnet. When the screen is tapped, it will fall flat on its back. Other models have a tab to insert the cover into when the cover is used as a stand to keep it from falling flat on its back.

Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, poor design, does not protect, causes damage
Bought this cover for my tab. As in previous reviews, the design of the stand is flimsy. So much, that it caused the tablet to fall, cracking my screen. Tablet is only a little more than a month old. Samsung's warranty does not cover physical damage, even when their own product made to protect the Tab is the cause. Was quoted $200 to repair the screen.

Cons: Poor quality, to expensive for what you get.
If your planning on using the case to support your tab you will be disappointed. The center of gravity does not allow the Tab to stay upright and the magnet is not strong enough to support the tab. It feels like the tab will fall over without touching and if someone walks by it does fall. This is a overall poor design. And all I get from Best Buy is that its working as designed. This will affect weather or not I will buy another Samsung Tab.
