These Apple-designed cases fit snugly over the curves of your iPhone without adding bulk. They're made from specially tanned and finished European leather, so the outside feels soft to the touch and develops a natural patina over time. The machined aluminum buttons match the finish of your leather case, while a microfiber lining inside helps protect your iPhone. And you can keep it on all the time, even when you're charging wirelessly.
I’m really hard on my phone, and this case is surprisingly great for that. well. It doesn’t get dirty easily and when I get cooking oil or makeup on it, it cleans up with just a little water. It does, however, have quite a few scratch-like dents on the back. I think from throwing it in my bag with my keys. I still give it 5-stars because for a leather case, it holds up very well to my carelessness.
- Fit is very snug, it snaps on tight and never comes loose
- Feels great in my hand. Isn’t slippery and is quite soft
- Black hasn’t faded or discolored
- Seems quite water resistant
- The volume and lock buttons are a nice hard plastic and easy to use
- Very low profile, still slides comfortably into my back pocket
- The leather is very pretty :)
Not much to not like about this. Great quality material, will protect your phone. And already starting to get a bit of patina with day to day handling almost a month into buying the case. This will give it character, make it look awesome and will make it one of a kind in the long run!
I love the patina these cases get overtime. If you want the case to stay looking new at all times, this case is not for you. They’re ridiculously overpriced. Apple claims that they drop test these but I had an older iPhone that broke with this case on. I would highly suggest waiting for these cases to go on sale. They’re just not worth it full price quality wise when you can get a stronger, better case for the same money, if not cheaper.
I had a red one for my iPhone XS and liked it so much got this one for my 11 Pro. It is thin and does not add bulk, which is something I prefer. It is leather so will discolor with time. You either like that or you don't, it just is part of leather. Apple uses a good quality leather. It is easy to put on or remove. While working outside I keep my phone in my front pocket. It is sturdy enough on my X that when a chain saw suddenly slipped coming out of a tree stump, it cut the edge of the case on a glancing blow but the phone was not damaged.
The leather feels very good quality. Just what you would expect from apple. I don't really drop my phone, so this case is fine for me. I mainly use it for grip, since the iphone on its own is kinda slippery. Does the job.
