    Hi Guys!

    Wondering if the community here can reco the best (functionally + aesthetically) ipad pro (10.5") cases available locally? I'm looking for something slim, good looking, has an apple pencil slot and is smart keyboard compatible.

    The poetic lumos case (https://www.poeticcases.com/products/lumos-2017-apple-ipad-pro-10-5) is the closest thing to what I want but I couldn't find this locally.

    Any thoughts? :)

    How’s your hunt? Where you able to find one? So the poetic case isn’t available here in Manila?

    You will most likely be down to the following cases (did the same research late last year):

    Poetic Lumos
    Khomo Ipad Pro Rear Case
    Switcheasy CoverBuddy

    There are other brands in Amazon but I guess they are not as widely available as the ones I mentioned above.

    As for me, I decided to just buy a smart keyboard compatible case without a pencil holder

    So I've been using the Tech21 Impact Clear for about 6 months now. Here's my take on it.

    PROS:
    • Drop protection
    • Seamless integration to Apple Smart Keyboard
    • Cutouts for speaker and charger align perfectly
    CONS:
    • Detachable Apple Pencil holder gets loose after a while
    • Volume and power buttons require a little more pressure to press
    I know use the case without the Pencil holder because one time it fell off with the lightest touch and almost left my Pencil on the floor.
