Cygnett Enigma Flexible-folding iPad mini Case hands-on1
First of all, the Enigma is a convenient and clever folding case that protects and props up the tablet in an assortment of configurations. Donning a snap-on design that snuggly accommodates the tablet, it’s nice that the entire thing has a soft touch matte finish, which essentially enables it to maintain a mostly clean appearance that does a decent job of repelling smudges and debris. Even better, the inner portion of the front cover is lined with microfiber to clean and protect the iPad mini’s display
Rather than buying one of those smart covers from Apple for the iPad mini, the Cygnett Enigma Case has something similar integrated with it. Again, it’s the front cover that can be rolled up to allow users to prop it up in both landscape and portrait. On top of that, you can also folks it into a triangular pattern for even more configurations – though, the magnets in the case don’t seem to be as strong as we’d like, since the connection is rather weak and easily broken apart.
Regardless, the $39.99 price for the case might be justifiable enough for people considering that it doubles as both a protective case and stand. However, it’s worth mentioning that it’s not a smart cover, seeing that the iPad mini doesn’t turn on/off when the lid is opened/closed.
