The ZeroChroma Folio case fits the iPad 2, 3rd-generation and 4th-generation tablets. It looks like any other iPad case until you open it up where you’ll find the signature stand installed. The great thing about the stand is that when it’s not in use it’ll sit flat inside the case as if it wasn’t there until it’s needed.

Folio Stand

The first thing we noticed was the shock-protective TPU back panel. It feels kind of weird when you first hold the case and we had a little bit of difficulty getting our iPad into the case. This was mainly because the panel has a reasonably big lip which helps to protect the screen, and so trying to get the last edge of your iPad under that proved to be quite difficult. We’ve heard from others that this was also the case when they tried. With an iPad holster manufactured from TPU we would expect to see button coverage/protection but this wasn’t included on the Folio. All other functions on the iPad are accessible plus your normal cut-outs for the speakers, charging port etc.

ZeroChrome Folio Theater Stand

The front of the case is lined with a leather like material which gives it a unique look, although were not exactly sure what it really is. Located on the inside of the front cover we have the theater-stand 360. If you’ve looked at or even own other ZeroChroma products before then it’s the same stand you’ll have seen on those. The stand itself is recessed into the felt covered plastic so that when closed it won’t be touching your screen which could lead to scratching. When activating the stand it’s a little stiff at first but this becomes easier to use after a few uses. It’ll rotate 360 degrees clicking at each quarter, as well as having 11 individual locking positions.


Our Verdict

The Folio case is great and I think I’ll be keeping it installed on my iPad for now. The theater-stand is so useful and you can say goodbye to not being able to mount your iPad at the correct angle. The 11 locking positions coupled with the 360 degree rotation means you can position the screen in pretty much any position you can think of. The case also supports the sleep/wake function which is good. I would have liked to see button coverage included to further boost the score as well as maybe slimming it down a little.

The ZeroChroma Folio will set you back $69.95, and sure there are a few things we would like to see changed but overall a really nice case. Similarly ZeroChroma also sell similar cases for your iPhone. You can purchase one or read more by following the link below.
