Zagg Slim Book: the complete review 2020

A few months ago, the American accessory designer released the first 9.7-inch iPad Pro keyboard, the Folio. If its design had not convinced us, we particularly appreciated its comfort and practicality. Today, Zagg returns with a new keyboard hull, the Slim Book, a version exclusively dedicated to the iPad Pro 9.7 inch which differs slightly from the first model.

The main development is that the shell that protects the iPad and the keyboard can now be detached. An undeniable practical advantage when you don’t need it. To link the two elements, we simply embed the shell in a hinge integrated into the keyboard part. The system, purely mechanical, is not very qualitative but it has the merit of fixing its tablet fairly firmly to the keyboard.

Autonomy multiplied by 8

Like the Folio, the Slim Book has no connections. The association with the tablet is therefore not established via the Smart Connector of the iPad Pro, but via Bluetooth. Zagg also announces another major development between the Folio and the Slim Book in terms of the battery life built into the keyboard. The latter goes from three months to two years! Unable to verify it during our few weeks of reviewing. We imagine that it can obviously vary a little according to certain parameters, in particular the more or less frequent use of the backlighting of the keys (always available in several colors) but the progress is no doubt.

Thanks to the detachable keyboard, it is now possible to vary the positions of the iPad. By inserting the hull containing the tablet, screen facing outwards, into the hinge, the keyboard part is used as a simple support. This makes viewing a movie more comfortable, without the keyboard coming between the screen and the user.

Keyboard: still almost flawless

Regarding the keyboard that had really seduced us on the Folio version, we find here the same comfort and the same efficiency. Note that some shortcuts are still relevant: playing music, adjusting the volume, launching a search or accessing Siri. In short, the integration with iOS is quite successful.

Finally, the overall design of the Slim Book once again leaves us hungry. The appearance and quality of the plastic used remains as unflattering as ever. The latter is hard, delivering a slightly low-end impression. And if it protects the Apple tablet very well, it does mark very easily. We thus noted the appearance of several fairly visible scratches after a few days.
