This case feels cheap and lacks attention to detail. When open (one handed reading) the lid does not lay flat against the back of the case and without the two surfaces matching up the lid easily slides around and feels sloppy. It's an annoyance that reduces the reading experiance in comparison to the previous generation leather case. I find myself holding onto the case with greater force and tuning off the Kindle with my pinky as a result. A simple result would be to remove the Kindle from the case but in reality it is such a tight fit that removing the device is tricky, especially in the dark.
The lid is a cheap thin material and does not have a soft luxurious feel as previous generations. This case is not worth the money and is a poor design in regards to function.
