    Hey i ordered a cover from Timovo for my baby iPad Mini 5
    Here is the link

    TiMOVO New iPad Mini 5th Generation 2019 Case, Slim Translucent Frosted Back Protector Smart Case with Auto Wake/Sleep, Smart Cover for iPad Mini 5 2019, Black https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PJRHLMX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_Q2X2Cb62TR5X9

    The issues are:

    - Sleep and wake doesn't seem to work

    - When using it in landscape mode, it doesn't feel that sturdy


    So i am looking for a slick cover with strong magnet and sleep/wake that works

    I am tempted to buy a Moko cover, but the thing is the price, its surprisingly cheap lol
    3 bucks really?

    MoKo Case Fit New iPad Mini 5th Generation 7.9" 2019/iPad Mini 4 2015 - Slim Lightweight Smart Shell Stand Cover with Translucent Frosted Back Protector, with Auto Wake/Sleep - Space Gray https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PHYRFG5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_v4X2CbFBSP0FQ

    I dont really like ESR, they put their branding name everywhere

    Any case model suggestion?


    Thanks

    I've tried many different smart cover style cases over the years for my variety of iPads. I'll be honest, nothing beats the quality of the first party smart cover with a clear "smart cover compatible" case on the back, such as this: https://www.amazon.com/ESR-Clear-Yippee-Anti-Slip-Cover/dp/B07QC5SGXZ. I know you don't like ESR but this is the one I'm using with my smart cover.

    I wish Apple makes a Leather Smart Case for the new Ipad Minis...

    How is smart cover in comparison of basic cover?
    Smart cover for iPad Mini 4 or 5?

    It adds unnecessary bulk, IMO. I prefer the smart cover and a clear skin on the back.

    Which color do you prefer for the cover?
    Coffee/chocolate/brown is one of my favorite, unfortunately i didn't see any choice in that color
    Mint/green/silver (most of them are not silver but rather light grey, i prefer something similar to iPad Mini in silver)
    Gold looks good too
    I find black cover pretty boring but i think i will choose this color lol because others colors look too funky to be really honest
    Problem with black color or space grey, i want clear back, 100% translucent
    Most of black covers use a black/grey translucent instead

    This looks so gorgeous

    I had this in black then coffee (but i couldn't find any pic, sorry) for my ex 10.5, a knock off from ebay or AliExpress

    Well made if it came without defect (you most likely know better than me, dont expect too much from these third sellers on AliExpress/Ebay)
    I know it does exist for iPad Mini 1234, they claim its compatible with Mini 5, however i am expecting some confirmation/feedback there

    I prefer the OEM smart cover over a basic cover. Better material, stronger magnets, etc. This is a Mini 5 specific smart cover :)
