Samsung FAIL! So Disappointed!
The good - it fits perfectly, and is a nice bright white. It does have edge bumpers, which will protect the edges of the tablet from scratches. BUT, they don't appear to be durable enough to protect the tablet from falls. It's simply light plastic.
Worst of all - THERE IS NO MAGNETIC CLOSURE for the front cover. (Even though I chatted directly with a Samsung rep, and specified the cover model number, and tablet version (Tab A 10.1 2019) and was TOLD BY SAMSUNG that it does have a magnetic cover closure. IT CLEARLY DOES NOT. This flop-open cover will not work for me, as I take my tablet with me constantly for classes, and teaching/home visits.
The cover folds into a small triangle, to prop up the device, and since it lacks the magnetic cover, only works in one position. Don't expect to adjust the angle to reduce glare, or maximize viewing.
OVERALL - the material is a light plastic, the cover is a thin floppy light plastic, and gives the impression of an inexpensive, entry level device cover. Not what I've experienced, or expected from Samsung. Samsung... you are cutting too many corners! (WE LOVED our OLD Samsung Book Covers for our Tab A 9.7, which I'd happily still be using, if I hadn't outgrown it's 18g of memory.) I'm returning this, and looking for an aftermarket cover for my device. So sad.
