Yoobao Leather Folio Case is the best

yoobao iPad introIs it really the best iPad case on the market? Not exactly, but definitive one of best coming from Chinese manufacturer and winning good reviews. First of all, there are several quite similar folio cases from the same manufacturer; AYL, Yoobao and Yaubau. No big difference in design and construction, so I guess it’s up to you choose a model.
Yoobao is made of real pigskin and has nice, lined up stitches all around the caase. The front cover is supposed to be folded back and secured on a catch-flap which allows the folio case to be stood up. It allows you to position your device in a viewing stand, either horizontally or vertically, or to be laid back for typing. Some version of Yoobao folio case (probably newer versions because our own does not) have an addition secure flap that secures device inside its framing. The snug fit keeps iPad held in place away from the edges which is great, otherwise the right corners may become unprotected.
The leather feels nice in hand while the inside is smooth and affords good protection while closed. However, the main issue is the bezel around the screen. It appears to be thick and so close to the edge that it makes typing in portrait mode difficult. On top of that it’s tough to drag icons between screens because it comes right to the edge of the screen. Overall, Yoobao seems to be durable, appealing and affordable iPad case.


  • Real pig leather/skin
  • Great finish
  • Multi-angle stand view
  • Decent level of device protection while closed
  • Smooth in hands
  • All iPad ports/buttons are accessible


  • Difference in construction for the same model (old and new?)
  • Bezel around the screen appears to be thick and too close to the edge
