I recently purchased the folio case and I noticed that after about 3 weeks of having it, the sides of the flap have curled up. Has anyone experienced this? Is this a normal thing for these cases or is mine defective?

Sadly, these cases are very shoddy for the price. I wouldn’t say that’s unusual, but I’d definitely try to get a replacement ASAP.

I have not had that problem. But the plastic ribbing at the bottom of the spine did begin to come off after 4-5 months. However, the Apple Store replaced it today with no argument. Overall, I like the case, even though it is not a bargain. I much preferred it to the Otterbox equivalent I tried out.

Mine is doing the same thing but I think it's due to the thinness of the material and it curls up after constantly being held. To me, it's a small negative that I can deal with due to the many positives the case provides for me.
