Spoiler:
The official case isn't much better when it comes to that. It doesn't stay closed when you turn it upside down and even just slightly tilting it that way opens it up.


I'd love to provide a more in depth comparison between the one you got and the official amazon one, but mine still hasn't arrived yet. Ordered on the 27th of november, shipped the day after day, left China on the 30th and not a single change since then. Not the seller's fault, but annoying anyways.

Anyways, the official one is pretty weighty but solidly built. The plastic is very thick (hence the weight, I assume) and the build quality in general is great. Sturdier than I would have expected, even though the front with the screen isn't protected as well against things pushing into it, e.g. in a fully packed backpad.
