Seemingly, Cooper has created the Elementary case to meet the practical demands of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 owners. This rudimentary folio case design provides everyday function and protection all in one sturdily-built, low-cost package.

- Minimal interior protection
- Loose corner holders

A simple yet durable book case, Maroo’s leather-crafted Moko for iPad is all about carrying and displaying the tablet – functions it performs quite well indeed. The first design introduced from the Maroo line of tablet cases, this one has remained popular enough Apple tablet users.
The first attention-grabber about this case is the leather exterior. The nice high-quality leather tablet cases feels good and looks great. The basic black model upon which this review is based provides an austere, conservative look that makes it appropriate for all occasions.
The interior cover includes a convenient hand strap , allowing for one-hand display of the screen while the iPad is held in place by the SG Bumper clips and extra straps at the corners; the cover may be folded out to provide a stand with the two standard viewing angles.
All in all, the Moko case for iPad is a solid entry into the tablet case market. A smart choice for display-first users.
- Clean, minimal design
- Made from quality black leather
- SG Bumper™ technology for easy take on and off and safer protection
- Smart magnet functionality
- Multiple viewing angles
- Includes hand strap
- Includes Waikawa cleaning cloth
The Moko portfolio does add some unnecessary bulk to the iPad, especially considering the few frills included. The loosened interior clip was a bit of a concern, but we’ll chalk that up to anomaly. Plus marks here are given for the classic leather no-nonsense look.
This book case is basically perfect for in-hand display thanks to solid clips holding the tablet in place and a sturdy handstrap. The embedded fold-out stand is a bit of a disappointment, however, offering only the standard two angles and not feeling particularly stable either.
An exterior of high-quality leather protects against everyday damage and the iPad is held firmly in place within the Moko portfolio. Inclusion of a screen protector might have been nice, but the Moko holds together with clips and magnets solidly enough to prevent typical incidents from harming the device.
Top-quality leather in a well-stitched package help to Moko stand out as an upper-end product. The interior can’t quite hold up to the outward packaging, but the thin velvet-like lining is OK.
Currently available at a sticker price of around $45, the Moko book case is slightly better than average in this range – and well below the average for a leather product. Definitely a top choice for budget-conscious iPad users still seeking good quality material.
Easily recommendable for nearly any iPad user, the Maroo Moko book case is well-liked and often complimented online – and one look can show why. Quite a nice case for most any everyday situation from the business world to personal life.
