    1. Screen protector – This product comes with its own built-in screen protector. It is a non-adhesive film attached to the front part of the case, so the film is, technically speaking, “laid” on top of the tablet screen, but there’s no tangible gap between the screen and the film. The nice thing about the non-adhesive part is that as long as you don’t have any major lints or dust between the screen and the film, you don’t have to worry about air bubbles. The feel of touch is not compromised by the film, although it feels inevitably less ‘glassy’, which is true for 99% of protective films of any kind. This is a clear type film, not an anti-glare or anti-fingerprint type. The upside is that the display quality is not compromised (which is more important to me), and the downside is that it will get greasy over time (which can easily be taken care of with some microfiber clothes). The front camera lens area is cut out. I cannot say anything about how resilient the film is, as I haven’t had the chance to make any scratches on it.

    2. The overall build quality is good. Once assembled, the cover won’t budge unless you deliberately try to take it off. The sides of the case have diagonal patterns, which make the sides less slippery and easier to hold compared to other parts of the case. This is nice because due to the small size of HD 6, you will be holding it with one hand a lot. Open cut-outs, aside from the one on the screen protector, include the ones over the speaker, the rear camera, and the microphone (a tiny hole). There are also two cut-outs with covers over the headphone jack and the micro usb port, which should keep the dust from getting in.

    3. The back panel has six ‘feet’ or bumps (including the one around the rear camera hole) that should keep the rest of the back panel off whatever surface you put the tablet on. The frame of the front panel around the screen is also slightly elevated, which means the screen will not touch the surface when you put the tablet face down.

    4. Weight – I do feel the additional weight with the case. But it doesn’t really bother me, as Fire HD 6 is not exactly light-weighted to begin with.

    Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the product. At first I was a bit hesitant, thinking that it might be a bit absurd to spend $18 for a $99 tablet (I bought the cheapest option). But I decided to invest some money, because my previous tablet, the original Nexus 7, got wrecked from fall damage, which I think could’ve been prevented with some physical protection. $99 or $199, the money’s gone when it’s gone.

    It’s a nice snug fit for the Fire HD 6. My toddler has had the case and the Fire HD 6″ for a few weeks now, and the case is definitely doing it’s job. I’ve seen her dropped the kindle a few times and even threw it once when she was upset. The ports and buttons on the kindle are easily accessible.

    Lightweight Armour for the Fire HD 6, November 5, 2014

    I am a hardcore reader and use my kindle daily, several times a day. I love this small device which is soooo useful, yet small enough to carry in my purse. I realized a long time ago that pretty cases are not useful (for me) as they tend to wear quickly and protection is negligible. Frequently I used to wind up taking them off completely as the kindle would slip out of the loops on the corners or pinch my hand while reading. My case of choice is the otter box which is basically armour for your Kindle. However the otter box is extremely expensive and generally is not available until a device has been on the market for a few months. I purchased the supecase because it looked like the best choice available for this newly released device. The supcase fits tightly over the kindle and provides protection to front, back, and sides. It has two layers of protection, less than the multilayered protection provided by the otter box. But it does provide a much sleeker appearance for about one forth the price. The color is spot on, exactly as it looks on Amazon, and is very attractive. It does not have the stand available with some otter boxes but once again is much more affordable. It is made of hard plastic with ridges at the edges which make it easy to grip. The joints fit tightly together and little rubber flaps cover the areas where you plug in your charge cord or ear phones. While some people may not like hard plastic, I am ok with it. It looks like it should last for the life of the kindle and should protect it from spills, dirty hands, dust, and falls. The plastic cover does not adhere to or in any way impede use of the touch screen. The buttons respond just fine when pressed. While I am used to this type of case and had no problems applying it, new users may have trouble. I understand that the recommended website is not real useful either. Like the otter box this case is made to stay on and not be removed so if you like to change cases you may not like this one. While I was initially disappointed that an otter box is not yet available for the fire HD 6 I am not unhappy with the supcase. Consider, the cost of the fire HD 6 is about $99 and the cost of an otter box runs about $60 to $75. A reasonable investment for a device that costs hundreds of dollars. Not so much for a device that costs $99. While this is not a otter box it does provide protection and peace of mind that if my purse falls with the kindle inside or something gets spilled on it it will not be damaged.
