It's physics - a hinge creates a stress point that a metal body can stand up to, but a plastic body can't.

I find the official cover very utilitarian - it works very well, is lightweight and doesn't get in the way when reading.

I'm working on some homemade covers but I may go back to the official one because it works so well, even if it is ugly.
