I recently got a new tablet, the Amazon Fire HD 8 2017 edition with Alexa and I love it, it’s durable, but I wanted a case for it so I bought one and liked it so I figured why not share my review of it with you. I didn’t need a rugged case but I wanted something that offered decent protection and looked nice so I settled on the Zerhunt ultra light slim case and I’m very happy with it. The case protects the tablet and allows access to ports and it even has a built-in stand. Read on to learn more…
Specifications and Features
The case is just slightly larger than the Fire HD 8. The top or front is made of PU leather which is just a fancy way of saying fake leather. It’s polyurethane and has a leather texture to it, it does look and feel like real leather though. The Zerhunt logo is in the bottom right corner of the cover an it’s really hardly noticeable. The cover has two lines in it that mark the fold points as the cover can fold to become a stand for the tablet.
The back or bottom is made of solid plastic with a section of the PU leather to match the front, it actually wraps around to the back. There is a cut out hole for the rear camera.
The inside of the case has a suede like material lining it, it’s soft and won’t mark the tablet case or screen. On the right edge of the case you’ll see to thin magnets, these hold the top cover in place. Closing the cover will activate sleep mode in the Fire HD 8 tablet. The case frame is in three parts connecting to the back or bottom but it still holds the tablet very well.
Getting the tablet in the case is fairly easy, it does require a bit of force to get it in the case but it goes in easily overall. You have to put the right side of the tablet in first and then push down towards the left and the tablet will snap into place in the case. The case has three holes for each speaker in the cover, not sure why though as the tablet doesn’t really stay on when the cover is closed.
The case has a cut out section on the right side for the memory card slot, it’s large enough to allow easy access to change the card if need be. The case has to entire top section cut out for access to power, volume, microUSB audio jack, and the microphone all to be accessed with no issues.
The case cover folds into a stand to hold the tablet in several different positions. You can put the tablet at a low angle for easy typing or up almost vertically for video viewing. The cover works very well as a stand, it’s sturdy and stable and using it I have no fear that it will fall over.
The Zerhunt case for the Fire HD 8 seems well made and like it will adequately protect the tablet from most anything during daily use. It’s not a rugged style case of course, but it will protect the outside edges, back and screen when the cover is in place.
I’ve had the case almost a month now and I’m very happy with it so far, it does its job and it does look very nice and it doesn’t add much bulk to the tablet at all.
The cover can put the tablet into sleep mode if that’s what you prefer, personally I always power it off when I’m not using it, but every once in a while I will use the sleep feature and it does work as it should.
The case, for what it is, it’s fine for me and my needs as I’m not taking it outside or hiking or anything, it’s just being used in my home primarily and sometimes out and about but I do have a bag I carry it in.
