CaseCrown is known for making very good quality products at reasonable prices. I’ve always loved using their products, so when the Ace Flip arrived at my doorstep I was excited to check it out. The Ace Flip is a new folio case made for the Kindle Fire that also incorporates a built in stand. Does it live to my expectations of CaseCrown?
Read on to find out.
Inside the minimal packaging all you get is the case itself, no extra screen protectors or anything. The case itself is made of a synthetic leather-like material and on the inside it’s a soft padded microfiber material. Installation is pretty easy, slide the Kindle into the tabs towards the right side, then snap on the tabs on the left. Once seated the Kindle sits firmly in place and doesn’t wiggle around at all.
Looking around at cutouts, on top one of the speakers is slightly covered up, but it doesn’t muffle sound at all. On the bottom, the center part is fully cutout and you have ample room for the headphone jack, USB port, and power button. One thing I’m not such a fan of is that the entire right side of the device is left exposed. It would have been nicer if it were covered up.
The stand portion of the case works pretty well. The flap that covers the screen has two ridges in it to rest your device into and to use them simply unsnap the hooks on the left of the device, and the case bends and you can rest it into one of the two angles. Both of them hold the Kindle easily and firmly in place. You can even use the Kindle easily in landscape using the stand.
Fit and finish is excellent, the stitching doesn’t fray over some time of use nor has it fallen apart. The bungee strap that holds the front flap shut could be a bit stronger, but it’s not such a big deal as it is. The only small gripe I have is that with the front cover closed there is a small gap between your device and that flap. It just leaves room for dust and dirt to get it and potentially scratch your screen.
Overall the Ace Flip for the Kindle Fire is an excellent case. It offers a good level of protection for your device while still keeping it relatively compact in size. The built-in stand functionality works well too. So if you’re looking for a nice folio case for your new Kindle Fire the Ace Flip is definitely worth checking out.
