Your Nexus 7™ or Nexus 9 doesn’t want to be like everyone else. It wants to express itself. Buy one of our totally customizable cases. You can thank us later.
Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 not included.
I love it, would recommend to anybody. The only things I would change are:
1. Having the magnetic snap closing and the elastic band is kind of redundant. I wish I'd gotten it without the band.
2. It *IS* a little bulky. Not bad, and I'm still happy with it, but if they could figure out how to shave a tiny bit off the thickness, that would make it perfect. I'm not sure it's possible.
Amazing cover for my Nexus 7! Unknown on Mon March 23rd 2015
But it ain't getting anywhere near my Nexus 9, cradled perfectly in its Portenzo bookcase. IT IS STAYING IN THERE NOTHING IS GOING TO GET TO IT. If anything, I occasionally swap cases so I can use my Nexus keyboard folio, and actually find the Portenzo holds the Nexus so well it takes some effort to remove it.
One little quirk (but it is really only minor!) is the USB port could be a fraction deeper, as only the slimmest of cables can make it into the tablet without attempting to pry the tablet out. But again, that is only a tiny quirk, and might just be isolated to my case because DID ANYONE MENTION THIS IS HANDMADE GOODNESS.
Seriously. If you are all professional-business, this makes you more professional and business-like. If you are all noughties hipster, this definitely give you some hipster cred. If you are just plain you, there is nothing like a Portenzo case to make a statement about who you are.

I think the case is really nicely done overall. The design is nice, It took awhile for my intellistand to "stretch" into place to actually use the magnets.
Some sanding and finish issues that I wouldn't normally have an issue with if I wasn't paying $100 for a case. Mike on Sun February 8th 2015
Satisfactory product, as you'd expect for the price, except for neodymium magnetic closure, which is so weak.
Oliver, Sarah here from production. I just wanted to make sure that you did not give up on our magnetic closure. It takes time for our magnets to fully realize their neodymium strength. Please contact us if it is not satisfactory after a week or two of use. Oliver on Tue January 27th 2015
I have had my case for a year and half. I throw it in my purse, drop it on the ground, and generally abuse the thing. The book binding part has held up beautifully, only minor wear.
The top of the wood corners started chipping off after the half year mark and the Nexus did not stay in as well. Now the wood sides are splitting, and the Nexus falls out easily.
The stand still functions flawlessly and is everything I hoped it would be. Despite the utter lack of care I have given it, my Nexus is still in great condition. Nicolle on Fri October 3rd 2014
I absolutely love my Nexus 7 Portenzo bookcase. I was very hesitant to spend this kind of money for a tablet I paid under $150 for, but I finally convinced myself it was exactly the case I wanted. And I was right! Handmade, quality, and it looks just like a hardbound journal. I got the black with black elastic. I'm now trying to convince myself I have no need for a second one as I really would like one of the Alano leather ones..... Oh if only I were a rich man..... John on Thu September 4th 2014
It was perfect. i Love reading with my Nexus and this made it feel more like a book to me. then my german shepherd got a hold of it. luckily the case protected my nexus. Unknown on Mon September 1st 2014
Was a very hesitant purchase due to cost but I absolutely love it. Its sturdy, giving great protection. Looks like a book and you can make it masculine or feminine. Would buy again. 5 stars if more affordable. Eric on Sun August 24th 2014
This is a great case and I love it. It was worth every penny, Might buy another one, w/ different colors. Unknown on Sun August 17th 2014
This product is fantastic. Well built and well-designed. Also, (and this is my favorite part,) their customer service truly is AWESOME! We had a minor technical hiccup with the case we bought and Portenzo's "Client Service Ninja" stayed with us through the whole thing until everything was perfect. I can't say enough good things about this company and will continue to recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks, Portenzo, for being AWESOME! Shannon on Fri August 8th 2014
What a refreshingly spectacular product this is. I wish more companies put as much effort and ATD into their wares as Portenzo clearly does. Standards-defining build quality, clean design, and materials that make the technology suddenly feel warm and organic.
I took off a star for only one (silly?) reason: the case is solid and will valiantly protect my device, but Portenzo's work is so gorgeous that I don't want the *case* to take damage, either! =P
This is a good buy. Stop reading reviews and buy this thing. The simple act of *reaching for your tablet* is going to make you happy. Unknown on Sun May 4th 2014
I ordered a BookCase to commemorate a loved one, and Sarah not only helped me to design a custom case with special printing, the whole team sent a lovely card as well. The caseis beautiful, sturdy and comfortable, like holding a printed book, and the customer service was spectacular. I'll definitely be back for more. Paul P on Sat May 3rd 2014
Thanks goes out to the Portenzo team. The product is high quality and reflects the images and expectations that were on the website. Throughout the ordering process and afterward, I received a lot of help and was very well taken care of. WOuld definitely order from them again. JP Niemann on Mon April 7th 2014
Absolutely happy with my purchase. The build quality is excellent and I'm fairly certain it will last me for years (possibly longer than the tablet inside... because, you know, technology). Makes a great stand when I'm at work, and a great book when I'm on the couch. Nicholas on Mon March 17th 2014
