i-BLASON Leather Nexus 7 Case has Auto Sleep/Wake, Multi-Viewing Angles, and Includes a Stylus for $20

Yesterday, we took a look at the official Nexus 7 case and came away impressed by the quality, but a little less impressed by some missing features (auto sleep/wake would be one major feature missing). As one of our readers has pointed out, there are numerous options sold through Amazon, almost all of which include auto sleep/wake. Many are made with premium leather, but some, like the i-BLASON case we have pictured above, also come with a stylus and have viewing angle support, yet manage to land at the same $19.99 price as the official TPU case. If you are dying to get your hands on a case, we have 3 options listed below, but again, Amazon has more than we can list in one post. The official TPU case looks hot with its Nexus logo, however, you may want more from a case than it can give you.

The i-BLASON and Blurex also have Prime shipping available.

Cheers Jerry!

    MoKo also has several cases for under $20 that have the sleep/wake function built in-

    Pretty bad looking cases. There are some good ones if you look on XDA in the N7 accessories forum.

      Yes! That is what I want. It’s super slim, and unlike those other ones, it actually has a way for you to fold back the cover and have it be folded all the way against the back of the device. I ride the subway and I would like to be able to use it without it being in one of the propped up/tilted configurations while I’m just holding it.

        Not to mention it lookes very durable so if you drop the device in this case it will be protected from a fall and the elements.

    For $20, that case looks super cheap.

    My MoKo rotating case just arrived. Auto on/off, fits well, has a spot for a stylus on the front. Doesn’t cover the bezel, which I liked. Has the new car smell still.

      Very very nice. I really hate how most cases don’t stand in portrait.

    I bought one of the $6 cases from Amazon. They call it a “slim fit” case with a magnetic closure and no velcro. Looks identical to the photo here, except without the free stylus (less than a dollar on EBay). Looks good. Works great, including the auto on/off. Not bulky. All the controls work fine and there is a cutout in the back matching the speaker. It is made from fake leather, though it is good looking enough. I have not seen any cases made from real leather.

    The $80 question….how much would this cost if it was for an iPad? :P

    My i-BLASON did not come with a stylus but is an amazing case! I’m super glad i picked this one!

    • Dandyman

      My i-BLASON didn’t come with a stylus either. Not a big deal however because i probably would never use it.

  • Benjamin Clay

    Mine arrives today :)

    This came in for me last night, I love the auto wake feature, but disappointed how thick the case is. Overall, I would give 3.5 stars. The other thing that might worry me is the velcro, I don’t think it’s the highest grade and i think over time it will be less than stellar holding the tablet properly.

        Just bought one for my wife… looking forward to testing it out.

          How is it? It looks really nice but I don’t like that it uses adhesive to hold it on

    I would recommend Blurex. I have a Blurex case for my Acer Iconia A100 and I have loved it. Excellent build quality. They also have a very good reputation for great customer support.
