The Frankie is comprised entirely of soft faux-leather which mimics the genuine article. This universal case is compatible with a range of 7” and 8" tablets thanks to four incorporated elasticized corner holds. Each corner employs the same approach: the top and bottom L-shaped pieces are connected via elastic bands, and the entire hold itself is connected to the back of the folio by 3 slightly longer bands.

To ensure secure placement of the tablet inside the case, the corner holds are then held in a fixed position via strong Velcro pads embedded in the inside back cover. While not the most sophisticated looking technology, the tablet holding design here is more forgiving than the plastic corners as seen in the Cooper Infinite case.

As with any universal case, it ultimately comes down to size. If you're 7" or 8" tablet is no more than 5.5 x 8.5 in size, than the Frankie will work. However, depending on the thickness of the device, the magnetic closure strap on the cover may not lock securely. Truly, this is the only one glaring concern we have with the Frankie tablet case. Also, creases on the inside front cover do appear as a result of folding it for the integrated stand support. But this should not necessarily be viewed as a genuine flaw with the case.

            Overall: GOOD

            Like any universal folio, this Properta offering can be deemed a best case scenario for any tablet owner who cannot find a case made specifically for his/her device. But in the end, we prefer the Frankie over comparable models such as the Cooper Infinite, thanks to its better overall quality and more forgiving fit for 7” and 8" tablets.
