First and foremost the DODOcase offers style and lots of it. It features a sturdy exterior cover and a solid core bamboo tray providing protection and security for our iPad. Your iPad fits very tightly into the bamboo tray and this precision fit prevents any movement.

There are 2 main viewing angles using this case. If you wish to use the DODOcase as a stand to watch movies you can fold back the front cover and by using the elastic strap and attached no-slip clip you can keep the case in place even when on a slippery surface. It can also be folded back on itself to put your iPad into typing mode. This position is also best for when you're reading on your iPad.

Final Verdict

The DODOcase will do pretty much everything you need to, it offers excellent protection, multiple viewing angles, quality and style. It may not achieve some things as well as other cases but other cases fall short where the DODOcase excels. The added bulk this case adds to your iPad may become uncomfortable for prolonged use.
