    Not Your Average Leather Phone Case!!

    So I bought this case for my iPhone 6s Plus. Now I know this says it’s for the 7+ & 8+ but any cases for the 7+/8+ will fit the 6 Plus and 6s Plus, it will just have extra open space in the cutout next to the single camera (see my pictures to see what I mean) because the only difference between all 4 models is the 7/8+ have a dual camera. So yes, any 7 Plus or 8 Plus case WILL fit the 6 Plus and 6s Plus phones. The “extra space” in the camera cut out had NO effect on my decision to return and exchange this case. Please continue reading to see why I exchanged it for a different case. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I can review this case. I bought a new iPhone 6s Plus and it was being delivered that day, but I didn’t have it in my hands yet and bought this case before it was delivered. Since I didn’t have it on me, I couldn’t try it out on my phone. So once I did get my phone later that day and put the case on, I ended up not liking how it looked. As for it’s fit and protection - the fit was perfect (for the 6s+) and it seemed like it offered a lot of protection for the phones corners and back. It had raised edges so the screen would not touch the ground if it fell screen down. It felt super comfortable in my hands and the leather was extremely high quality. I really liked how from 1 foot away, or more, the case looked like it was a smooth plastic or TPU (rubber) but once you got a closer look, you could tell it was leather. Some might not like this, but this was the selling point for me that originally made me buy this case as I usually have zero interest or desire to buy a leather phone case. Although I did end up returning it for the Tech21 6s Plus case that’s Blood Red + Smoked, this was a very nice case and I only returned it because of personal taste, NOT because of the cases protection or quality. Overall I would definitely recommend this case to friends if they asked about minimal design leather iPhone cases.

    Great IPhone 7Plus Case

    This is a fantastic iPhone case. It’s very smooth feeling in the hand and not bulky feeling. Other cases that I’ve had in the past on other iPhones felt bulky in my hand but this one feels comfortable. Also, it’s been hard to use the side buttons on other cases that I’ve had on other iPhones because they’ve been so stiff feeling but this one allows for easy operation of the buttons. But one caveat to it is, sometimes I accidentally “turn off” the phone (not completely off, just sleep mode) while I’m doing something on my phone and have to wake it back up by turning it on, but that’s just a minor blip. I just have to remember to be careful where I put my fingers when I’m holding my phone! Also, I’ve dropped my phone a few times already and it has protected my phone very well so far. Plus, I love the color. I got the blue one and it’s a great color. If you’re on the fence about buying it, go ahead and buy it. You won’t regret it even though it’s a little pricey. Wait until BB has it on sale for a few dollars less if cost is a factor for you, but otherwise, go for it!

    Great Case for iPhone 8+

    I recently purchased the iPhone 8+ so I needed to find a case for it. Most of the cases are made of a polyurethane type material, that is rather thick and heavy. My last case was like this and it became unpleasant to hold as well since it got warm and sweaty as the battery heated up. So, I was very pleased to come across this lightweight leather case. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and it’s terrific. It’s soft and feels nice to the touch. It’s perfect for those who are not rough with their phones. It’s subdued and smart looking. However, if you are prone to dropping your phone or you have children who play on your cell then this may not work well for you because it would not give your phone enough protection. It comes in a few nice colors and I plan on getting a second color - it’s very easy to remove and replace. I highly recommend this case!

    Looks good, Bad Durability

    This is a good looking apple case. It has the leather smell. Real leather! The look of the design is awesome. The phone looks great in the case (especial if you have a black iphone). The phone does not look bulky at all. The case has protected my phone BUT... the case does scuff/scratch when it falls on/rubs against hard surfaces(Ex-phone falling on concrete outside). With the case falling on hard surfaces it may likely case the leather to rise up/come off in certain spots. But you can always smooth these spots down with your fingers to make your case look decent. Overall the case is nice!

    I always stayed away from the Apple cases. They're expensive and simple looking. For my last phone (iPhone 6s Plus) I went ahead and bought it after another case failed me and I figured I'd give it a try. That case ended up being one of my favorite cases I've ever had. So, when it came to purchasing a case for my iPhone 8 Plus, while I did still try other cases, I went with what I knew I liked. The screen protection isn't as good as an Otterbox or LifeProof case, but it's also much less bulky. For the old phone I did drop it a couple times. The old phone never broke nor did the screen shatter, and the leather on the case held up well. I'd definitely recommend considering this case.

    This is my first leather case. I usually just go for the silicone but decided to splurge on a leather this time. The color is very classy and is all business. The case fits the phone like a glove. Grip isn’t as good as the silicone case but overall it’s pretty good. The buttons are very nice and almost feel like the phones buttons, they are nice and clicky and responsive. After a week of use I can start to see the leather wearing in on the edges and corners. I feel as time goes on it will wear in like a nice leather jacket I will probably try some leather cleaner/conditioner to keep the case looking it’s best.

    I planned on getting a cheaper brand case but saw that most cases were priced very similarly. So I decided to get the Apple brand since It’s made by Apple I knew it would fit perfectly. And it does. And I really just love everything about it. It’s thin and light weight so it doesn’t add any extra bulk to the plus size iphones. It looks good. I have the silver iPhone 8+ and got the black case. And it just feels good in the hand. The only cons I would say is that there is no grip, but that would take away from the looks, and the bottom of the phone is exposed, but that’s where the speaker is so I guess they can’t cover it. But despite those I love the case and will most likely buy the Apple brand cases in the future.

    A Great Quality Case

    I bought this case about 9 months ago and have been very satisfied with it. At the price as well as it being Apple I expected it to be a quality and exceptional case, and it definitely is. It fits my iPhone 7 Plus perfectly and is easy to install/remove. The button extensions feel like they are a part of the phone itself. The leather is durable and wears as genuine leather should, and it has colored nicely. The leather provides a moderate grip when the phone is sitting on something but it is still easy to take in/out of my pocket. The color of the leather and buttons is very nice and sophisticated.

    Stylish slim case

    Had a bulky, protective case on my prior iphone but never really dropped and hated how much pocket space it took up. Stepped up to the 8+ size this time and even the bigger phone seems easier to carry with this slim case. Not as protective as some cases obviously and shows scratches and dings but that only adds to the character of the natural leather. Midnight blue does become very dark after some use but i think still looks great. Metal side buttons have good tactile feel and are easy to click. Highly recommend this product to be paired with a tempered glass screen shield which will dramatically increase protection on the most commonly damaged part of your phone.

    Bought this case for my boyfriends mother for Christmas. She wanted a simple black case for her iphone 7 plus and wanted to be able to use pop sockets. This phone case has held up great. She uses her phone quite a bit and it hasnt shown any dirt or grime as opposed to my phone case which is the cognac/brown color which you can definitely tell has wear marks all over after a short time of use. Black is the way to go with apple leather cases! (warning: if you use a pop socket on this type of case, it will leave an indent)

    I recently got an iPhone 8 plus and I’ve been looking for a decent case that doesn’t add bulk. I got the Otterbox Symmetry case but it still felt bulky since the phone is pretty wide. So I looked again and found the Apple Leather case on sale. It felt great. A little slippery but that should change in time. Fits perfectly and barely adds anything to the phone as far as bulk. Probably won’t be the best for drop protection but knowing that, I’m more careful about handling the phone. Overall, it a fantastic case and it’s a personal preference more than anything.

    Overall, I liked this case, but the color I got was too light. I got the taupe color but should have at least gotten the saddle brown color. I keep my phone in my pants pocket a lot of the time, and my blue jean color seemed to have rubbed off on the taupe color. At first, I thought the case was a little slippery, too, but I got used to it. Originally, I wished the bottom of the phone was covered, but then I realized how much better the speaker sound is now that there is nothing obstructing it. I want to get another one of these leather cases but get a different color next time.

    I ordered this case in the Product Red color because it was on sale at a nice savings price. I have never had an Apple Leather iPhone case until now, and I did not expect to like it as much as I do, but I am so glad I purchased it. It is so soft and fits my iPhone 8 Plus like a glove. It is also easy to put on and remove. I have been using it for about 10 days. So far no scratches or stains on the leather, which was my greatest concern. At this point, I can highly recommend it.

    Was going to get the silicone one but they did not have it in stock so I got the leather one. I like the case a lot it is very thin, looks good, is not a pain to get on and off. Vey nice minimal case. I knock one star because it is a little slick, it should have a better texture as far a grip goes. I felt of one that had been used for a while (on a guys iPhone 7) and it was much better so use seems to help. I think it is because it is so thin the leather is pressed so hard it is very smooth.

    I didn't want a bulky case and I could find an inexpensive case that I thought I could trust. I wanted a Tech21 case like I had on my old iPhone 6s Plus but the Tech21 offering for the iPhone 8 Plus was loose fitting. The Apple Leather case fits tight, is not bulky and looks good on the phone. The only caveat is that it is initially pretty slick. After about a weeks use, it has a little tack to the leather and I don't feel like it's going to slip out of my hand. I would certainly recommend the purchase.

    The cover look to have been made of quality material, smooth leather. The things missing would be a little more ability to hang on into things and not be as slippery as it is; the bottom part should cover all the edges of the screen. I just hope my phone won’t drop buttoms down because about 90-95% of the bottom part including where the speakers are located is exposed and not covered at all. I had used a Speck case and it had all around coverage unlike this Apple case for the iPhone 8 Plus.

    This phone case is really cute! The only issue I had with it is that it stains really easily with jeans/black pants. The corners of my case now have little black stains that don’t come off. The corners of the case seem to have a stretched out look on the leather from stretching it in order to put on the case but it’s not all that noticeable unless you really pay attention. If you don’t place your phone in your pocket then this case is perfect for you! I unfortunately had to return because it wasn’t worth the price to me.

    Nice case, somewhat slippery

    The case looks and fits great, but the leather finish is a slippery wax. The 8 plus phone is fairly large and even with large hands the case is not easy to hold onto. I gently used rubbing alcohol and fine (0000 grade) steel wool to remove the wax. The color and appearance are unchanged, but it's much easier to hold on to the phone now. I haven't had a chance to try an Apple silicone rubber case, but if you can try them both, you may find that the silicone is grippier and looks just as good.

    I was disappointed in this Apple iPhone case. I had been looking for a leather case and thought that Apple would have good quality material. However, I was wrong. I was not concerned with scratches because I like the natural, worn leather look, but I was disappointed with how flimsy and soft it was. Plus, the metallic power and volume buttons were not secure. In fact, they became indented and did not work - This was only after one week of having it. I returned it right away.

    I got the (product)red version and the red looks a lot better than in the illustration, which is a plus. The buttons feel pretty good, too. I’m excited for the natural patina this case will develop over time. However, I think more attention to detail could have been paid. The case just feelt rought around the edges, almost literally. Otherwise, decent buy if you can get it on-sale.
