At A Glance

Xhibt’s Inspiria Metallic iPad mini Classic Case is attractive and seems like it offers a decent amount of protection, but it needs some tweaks before it can be a front-runner in the book-style folio category.

The Defender series case for iPad mini protects your device in relative style.

This run-of-the-mill case offers a multiple-angle stand and decent protection.

Though the Hex Code Folio is a bit heavy and bulky, it makes up for it in solid performance as a case and stand.
