Case Comparison

Protective cases protect your device from stains, scratches and shocks to prolong its service time. BOOX has officially released three types of protective cases to date at its shop. Each of them features different appearances and functions.

Regarding the price of BOOX E Ink tablets and eReaders, most of the users will use a case to protect their device but will probably get confused when facing the three kinds of protective covers. 

We’re going to compare them and help you decide which is best for you to buy.

Choose A Protective Case by Device Model

Before diving into the comparison section, we want to help you identify your protective case based on your device model.

  • Note and Nova series users can buy any of the three types of cases.
  • For Max3 users, only the standard fabric-touch smart case will suit your device.
  • Poke2 users can buy the compact bezel-free adhesive protective cover.

Then let’s figure out how these cases can protect your BOOX device.

If you’re looking for a protective cover that is stain, scratch and shock-resistant, you can try our latest magnetic wake-up case. We use fine PU to make the front flips so that they can protect your device from splashes and damages. They can also resist bacteria and make your BOOX sanitary.

Moreover, the 1mm thickness and warm, smooth touch make it comfortable to hold in hands. The front lid can be totally folded back, helping you read with one hand easily.

As for the back shell, it features a different material from the front cover. Made of quality polycarbonate (PC), the sturdy back case can provide a good shape that fits perfectly to your BOOX and holds it tightly with covering four corners. It will hardly deform even after a long time of use. The only disadvantage can count is that you can hardly take off the case with this secure back shell, but you can take it as an advantage of offering reliable protection to your tablet and eReader.

Also, three colors (blue, orange-brown and misty grey) with unsaturated hues give a colorful appearance and a pinch of elegance to your BOOX.

In addition to the above features, this case is magnetic inductive: You can put your BOOX to standby while closing the flip and wake it up upon opening to prolong its battery life. You can also connect the USB C cables to your device without taking off the case. Note2 and Nova2 users can even attach a USB C hub to their device to use OTG. 

This ultrathin protective case is made for users who love the soft touch of the cover and want an excellent material to protect your gadget from bacteria, scratches, and bumps. But you should pay attention that this ultrathin magnetic wake-up case can only be used on Nova2Nova Pro and Note2. If you’re Max3 and Poke2 users, keep reading.

If you’d like a texture that touches more like stitched fabric than smooth leather, this standard fabric-touch smart cover can meet your needs.

We released this type of protective cover in grey color a while ago for Nova2 and Nova Pro, and a similar model for Max3 and Note2/Note Pro/Note as well. The most significant difference between this case and the ultrathin one is the material and texture.

For Note and Nova cases, both the front lid and back shell of this case feel and look like cloth and thus present a low-key style. When you’re holding it, your fingertips will get more fraction, helping you grip a BOOX device better. For Max3 cases, the TPU back case can provide a more elastic feeling to your fingers. If you’re using a large-format E Ink tablet, such as Max3 and Note2, this cover can effectively protect it from falling off.

It also has a pen holder on its side and a smart wake-up function as the upgraded model does. However, if you’re more into the fabric texture and want to add a sophisticated touch to your reading task, this type will better suit you.

  1. I would like a cover that adds a side grip to the nova2. The side grip would be something that Kindle Oasis has buijt-in as part of the tablet casing.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Donaldson. We’re collecting users’ perspectives on our protective cases to give us some insights into user preferences and product development. We’ll take your suggestion into consideration.
