This is a fabulous case. I have had one for a few months now, and yesterday I dropped it for the first time. It held up like a champ. No damage to my Nexus 7 2013, and the case is no worse for wear.
In fact, when I dropped it, I didn't even think for a moment that my Nexus would be damaged. This case is built to protect.
An important item to note: the way that the Nexus is cradled in the case keeps the screen from contacting the inner part of the case cover. I like my screen to be smudge free, and I wont use a plastic protector on the Nexus screen.

I need to admit, I was skeptical about a this expensive product. Nevertheless it worth every penny for a custom case. Fits perfect and is just the right size of my New Nexus 7. Took almost a month to get to my country but I patiently waited for my custom case. Thanks guys. Keep the doing this great work.

I recently received my case for my New Nexus 7--I will just say that I probably will not buy another case from another company other than Portenzo. I love everything about it: the customization, the craftsmanship.
Of course, getting a case by these guys takes time to personalize for the customer; even as I frequently came back to the site to check the status--a chat representative was nice enough to ping me and check the order and answered any questions that I'd have. I really can not express how pleased I am. GET ONE!

I'll start off by saying that the quality and build for this case is unmatched. However, it's too heavy and bulky for a 7" tablet. The case effectively doubled the weight of my Nexus 7, which defeats the best factor for a 7" tablet--the ability to hold it comfortably in one hand for long periods of time. The Intellistand needs work too. There needs to be more "fold" because the only viewing angle is essentially an L which makes viewing on a tabletop difficult. But I must say, the build quality is the best I've ever seen. I returned this case and got the much thinner HardBook instead.
