Doesnt it hinder the smart cover though?I use a skin on the back to protect from scratches and the smart cover hinge from doing damage to the side of it.
Not the Best Skins Ever one. No cut out, and works fine with the smart cover attatched. Havent tried any other brand.Doesnt it hinder the smart cover though?
Just asking, as I see a lot of skins that are "smart cover compatible", which basically means theres a cutout for the smart cover to sit in.
Aluminium scratches. Easily.The back is aluminum so I don't worry about it at all. The entire point of the smart covers were to keep the iPad thin and easy to pick up while protecting the screen, and any back cover thin enough to not mess with that isn't really protecting much.
For me it's because I can very easily remove the smart cover when I want to, then put it back on just as easy. With the skin always on I can set it down just about anywhere, slide it across the table, without worrying about scratches. It's convenience I guess.I've always wondered why so many people insist on using smart covers. For full protection, you'll need another case/more protection on the back. Why not just get a slim leather folio case or a sleeve?
