The Cooper Gradus for Galaxy Tab 8.9 is an overall decent folio case that provides better-than-average function for a less-than-average cost. Its main feature is a 360 degree rotating stand for displaying the tablet, which can help divert the user's attention away from the rather shoddy-looking case construction.

Editor's Rating 

The Cooper Gradus consists of a polycarbonate snap-in shell with a faux-leather cover. Once sealed shut via the elastic strap, this folio design provides full-body protection against basic wear and tear. The interior plastic shell-casing fits the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 very well, snapping securely onto its corners and leaving open access to all controls and features, including the rear-facing camera. Built into the plastic shell is a rotary piece for spinning the tablet between landscape and portrait formats. However the loose binding tends to buckle inward during this process. In order to make the transition more fluid, the user must grasp the binding in one hand, while rotating the shell with the other. Once the desired format is achieved, you can fit the device in one of two grooves on the inside cover for an appropriate display angle. Portrait format really only works in one of the provided supports, while landscape format works just fine in both.


  • Elastic cover strap for secure closure/carry
  • Landscape and portrait format display

          Overall: OKAY

          The Cooper Gradus folio is a best case scenario for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 user who seeks solid-working video stand function at a good price.
