I just bought the magnetic one (3rd party) for my Voyage. I needed protection from scratches in my purse and lightweight. Liked the power saving feature. I think the leather one is better for protection from falls (it is heavier than the origami one).

The origami case is protective and great if you would benefit from having a built in stand. I do a lot of reading while eating and this works great for me. I prefer leather but I think the vinyl is equally protective and functional.

I wouldn't call the origami case "nice to hold." I find it wonderful for reading at a table. But for holding I just slip the Voyage out of the case and hold it 'naked.'

Do you have the leather or the vinyl one? I have the leather one (the standard leather one, not the premium version) and find it very nice to hold; I like it a lot. A friend of mine has the vinyl one and neither she nor I like it - it's rather slippery to hold.

I think it's much better, as I said.

I have the cheaper Origami plastic case (Amazon brand) and also a couple Fintie smartshell cases. I swap between them--I like the Finite cases because they are light weight (noticeably lighter than the Amazon case) and still provide good protection. I like the Amazon case because I do like the ability to stand up my reader when reading at lunch. When I'm using the Amazon case, and not using the stand functionality, I do usually pop the reader out of the case to read--which is incredibly easy to do. The Fintie case is light enough, that I don't feel the need to remove the case when reading--which is a good thing, because it's not quite so simple to remove the reader from the case. One nice thing about the Fintie cases is the price--about $15 USD.

I had the grey simple Origami case and loved it except for the fact that the magnets attracted dirt... shouldn't be a problem with the darker colors...

The only times I've ever dropped my Kindle have been when I've been reading, so for me it would completely defeat the purpose of the case to remove it from it when I'm reading. Eg a few months ago I was reading while having my lunch sitting on a bench in a park on a sunny day. I put the Kindle on the arm of the wooden bench to answer the phone, and accidentally knocked it off. It fell about a metre onto a concrete surface. In its case, and no damage done.

I have the plastic origami case, and I don't find it to be very slippery at all, it does have a textured surface. When the cover is folded back, the interior is a type of fabric, which has a different texture to the outside, and to my fingers is less slippery than the outer surface. My hand is large enough that I can hold it one handed when it is in the folded stand mode by the "stand", which is a fairly secure way to keep ahold of it, but that wouldn't be comfortable for long periods.

Harry, I have the vinyl one. I understand the leather one would feel better to the touch but I still would not like holding the added bulk and weight versus slipping it out of the case.

Most of the time I set it on a table but if a table is not handy, or at the right height, I'd rather hold it naked. It will have less protection in case of a drop but it is not night and day versus a folded-over case. The origami design does not stick out significantly so, with the cover folded back, on a drop we still have a 50% chance of hitting a 'bare' Voyage edge or face.

just ordewred the leather premium case and it strangely feels good.
i will likely turn it over on its self , it would have been nice if the black interior was a leather feel too, as i don't like that material. will probably return my flint case as this one oozes quality and smells nice
