    Not very often, i am actually not what we call a writer because of tactile troubleshooting experience although its my first device which i may find tactile experience surprisingly good
    I owned Magic keyboard v1, thing is: typing after some tume makes my fingers a little bit exhausted
    And i had almost for free (great bargain)
    I may consider to pick physical keyboard because i can only have a solid tactile typing experience in reverted landscape mode when you hold cover in a way where screen is almost flat to your desk
    Maybe its because in that position, tactile keyboard would be very close to what you ll get on real keyboard

    Similar to the screen a keyboard is usually an important interface element. If you get a good return policy - just buy it and send it back if you don‘t want to keep it for some reason. Personally, I would go into a good shop with quality keyboards and compare, then buy locally. Since iOS devices work with pretty much any Bluetooth keyboard, get the one that you like the most. Especially if it‘s for home use where mobility doesn’t restrict your choices.

    Yes i have ordered it from Amazon which has great customer after sale service
    If some of you want any further feedback, i would be glad to share it
    It should come within couple weeks (between 10 and 20 feb)
    I wont expect much about quality, but maybe it wont be so bad at all

    I got package just few minutes ago, i plugged micro usb to into charging
    Micro usb is kinda short, about 30 cm, its not usb-c!
    It feels pretty like any chiclet keyboard,
    At the beginning, i thought it was full of plastic case but it doesn't
    In fact you might feel the aluminium built when you hold it
    There is a thin aluminium layer
    Its definetely beyond Apple genuine keyboard quality but it doesnt seem to be bad at all
    I noticed also if you come from the first Apple Magic Keyboard, its kinda flat
    You'll have to get used to typing on such flat surface keyboard.

    Thanks for the update and the photos.

    Micro USB is fine though as long as you're not having to charge it every few days, I'd just use one of my long phone ones anyway.

    Sure it's good value for money but think I may as well just get the official one, it is expensive but you use it so often that over the course of a couple of years you'd really forget about the price difference.

    Of course, official one must have much better build qualities overall but its very expensive, its within 120€ price range
    Way too much overpriced

    Does anyone have official Magic Keyboard ?
    I m wondering if it goes into sleep mode if afk after some times
    Mine goes into sleep mode and keys dont respond immediately, just few seconds later, its really annoying imo
    Thats the main downside to me
