Logitech Slim Folio Pro Reviews 

The Logitech Slim Folio Pro known as Apple’s Ipad keyboard comes with backlit keys and three unique modes; Type Mode, Sketch Mode, and Read Mode. The Slim Folio Pro costs $ 119.99 – 129.99, and also you get one years warranty. As the name suggests, Slim Folio Pro is a folio-style keyboard cover that will protect the front and back of your iPad Pro when not in use. Opening and closing Slim Folio is a relatively simple affair. There is a magnetic hook that includes a lock, keeps the Folio closed, and attaches to the back of the Folio while in use.

All I / O and ports on iPad, microphones, USB-C connections, speakers, cameras, etc. – still unobstructed. Slim Folio is precisely designed from the ground up with the iPad Pro in mind, fitting the tablet like a glove. This unit does not utilize the Apple Smart Connector, which can provide connectivity and instant power – a solid loss compared to Apple’s Smart Keyboard Folio. Instead, Logitech uses a Bluetooth LE installation while sipping power from a built-in battery.

Logitech states that Slim Folio Pro will last up to 3 months with a single charge, with everyday usage of 2 hours. This smartly designed keyboard automatically turns on and off based on whether the keyboard is anchored in typing mode, and the hyper-aggressive backlight timeout.

Included on the side of the Logitech Slim Folio Pro, not far from the iPad Pro USB-C port, is the USB-C port that is used to charge the keyboard. Do you think about what I think? Yes, you can use your iPad Pro USB-C cable to recharge Slim Folio Pro directly from your own iPad Pro. With this in mind, battery life will rarely be a problem, because recharging Slim Folio is nothing more than connecting the keyboard to your iPad via USB-C. Easy.

Bad > Bulky, Uncomfortable to hold in reading mode, Only one viewing angle, No Smart Connector support, Mushy button interactions

Good > Great protection, tactile feedback, Backlit keys, Dedicated shortcut keys, Stable typing surface, 3-month battery life, Accommodates Apple Pencil

Conclusion > The iPad Pro 2018 is already a powerful productivity tool, and adding a perfect keyboard from the Logitech Slim Folio Pro makes it even more useful. The Case is rather large, doubling the weight and thickness of the iPad. It still brings welcome protection for tablets. A lighter keyboard casing is not protective.
