The best Kindle Paperwhite case

A fabric exterior and magnets that stick the cover to the back while reading set this case apart from the competition.

This common style of case (known as a folio) has a solid back and a front cover that hinges open like a book. Amazon’s case isn’t going to win any awards for originality, but it’s a well-executed take on the style. We found it comfortable to hold in extended reading sessions, and although the color options are limited, there should be enough variety for you to find a color you like.

A few omissions but half the price

This is the best of the non-Amazon cases; it has most of the features we expect from a folio.

Omoton’s Kindle Paperwhite Case is pretty similar to Amazon’s, but small quality differences keep it from being our top pick. The exterior is polyurethane instead of polyester, which feels less nice to the touch, and the magnets, while strong enough to hold the case shut while you’re not reading, don’t connect the front cover to the back when you are reading. But of the third-party options, it feels the most polished, and Omoton has been making the best Kindle cases for many years. This case also happens to cost about half as much as Amazon’s. Some customer reviews say the corners can chip or crack, though.
