    Nice looking but overpriced and very thin.

    I really wanted to love this case. They're nice cases, but not super nice and I gotta say I felt ripped off by what I got for the price I paid. Check the case that's in the packaging before you buy it. The package just slides open to reveal an unprotected case contained within. I didn't know this when I bought my first one in store and when I got it home and opened it I found a huge gash across the back of it. Took it back to the store and the return process was great. When I was there doing the return I went to get another case to exchange. The rep from the phone department grabbed me an iphone X case (since there were no more XS leather cases in stock) and said they're the exact same cases and it would fit the phone perfectly. I told him I'd read that the camera bump was slightly larger on the XS than the X and he said, "Nope", and that the X case would fit the XS perfectly. Turns out the X cases do not fit the XS perfectly - shocker - since the camera bump is indeed slightly larger and the bottom right edge would ride up over the camera just a little bit, and have to be forced back down every once in a while. Not a dealbreaker but a definite annoyance and I hate getting bad info from salespeople on the floor at the stores. The dealbreaker was the overall quality you get for the fifty dollar price tag. These cases feel like they're pressed out of a sheet of wet chipboard. They're about the same thickness and have a similar feel to them. If it wasn't for the hide-like texture to the inside of the case you'd have a hard time convincing someone that it's not made from cardboard - at least with the black ones I got. All that coupled with the fact that these cases offer maybe minimal protection at best for a phone that costs more than my first car did, made me decide to go for something else that offered more protection, got great reviews and cost about half as much as these cases. These apple cases look good, add almost no bulk to the phone while using it or while in your pocket and feel like they should age well over time so if that's what you're looking for this case might work for you, but it just didn't offer the protection and value that I was looking for in a case for my new phone.

    Yes, this product is overpriced. It's a simple case with the complete bottom exposed. There's just something about it though... It's fantastic leather. Some may appall that but those who like fine design and the scent of well crafted goods will enjoy this. It is very thin, to the point that if I take the case off, besides the feel changing from leather to glass/aluminum, there's little change to the fit in the hand. That said, I think there's too much bulk around the silence toggle switch making it hard to flick it with a nail. The buttons work well through the case with a nice finish to them. And though the bottom seems to leave the phone unprotected on that side it's actually crafted really well just around the corners so that a direct drop onto the bottom of the phone still wouldn't damage the phone (on a flat, solid surface). A big selling point for me was the fact that the swipe down gesture was easier to perform this case because the bottom was open. That's a design point that I look for from Apple. I also like to buy the (Product)RED products if I buy Apple accessories since it's a beautiful red they offer and also it supports a cause. That said, if you're one wanting to accessorize, say, your iPhone and Apple Watch, it'll be better to buy in the same material. For example, I have the silicon (I know it's not silicon but just follow me) sport watch (product)RED band and the leather phone case. Not the best match. As expensive as the watchband is I don't see these ever being a pair in my wardrobe (I know, first world problems). The reason I went with the leather was a sale at the time that made it only $3 more than the silicon. For the feel of a leather case I thought the upgrade was worth it. This is a nice case. It's overpriced but there is design built into it that is overlooked in other generic cases. I like the color. It's not for everyone and perhaps you'd enjoy the silicon case better. Personally, I have no buyer's remorse.

    So I won't say that the are the most durable or universally awesome, but they DO protect well. Leather absorbs almost everything. If you get a chance to get a front piece that tucks under or goes right up to the leather edges, that'd be even better. However, this is my second one. First one was my sacrificial lamb to the slippery finger gods. It also got mucked up (being red) with the usual hand oils and such and in-and-out of (a guy's) pocket. It did protect well. However a few things to note: 1) If you use some sort of mobile magnetic mount system, it is much weaker on the inside of one of these leather cases. Your phone will drop off your mount on big bumps. You can still charge ok, but be prepared for some drops on the road (which aren't nice). 2) Except for the black/brown, these things pick up oils/dirt rather well...so keep em clean or you'll have a fairly ugly looking case in a few months 3) The QUALITY CONTROL has gone down...or they are running out of cows over there. Original one I bought near iPhoneX launch was perfect. One I just bought had odd grain lines that went across and down the back that weren't attractive. When I went to exchange it (thinking I just got the bum one) it turns out nearly all of the ones in the store had the same issues. Fitment was still good and I believe it would have protected the same way. But when you pay for a $50 premium product, you expect a little more.

    Stylish case

    Bottom Line: Apple’s iPhone X Midnight Blue Leather case is a stylish accessory that offers protection from nick and scratches and the occasional drop. Pros: Stylish, feels great, looks good and ages well, protects back glass from scratches and scuffs, camera notch fits perfectly, helps avoid damage from the occasional drop Cons: Minimal protection not enough for everyone Bottom Line: I’ve been a big fan of Apple’s Leather Case for years. The leather feels great in your hand and is textured enough that you should’t worry about dropping it. The Midnight Blue also ages really well, even if the case gets some nicks and scratches over time. If you’re looking for a stylish and minimal case, this one is for you. The iPhone X’s camera cutout fits the camera pefectly. It also is curved so it keeps the camera from directy contacting the table when you lay the case down. The front of the case wraps around the front edge just enough to keep the screen from contacting the surface if you lay it face down. I’ve also dropped the phone a couple of times on our kitchen floor, and the phone has come away undamaged. Quite obviously there’s a big trade-off between case size/style and level of protection. This case is definitely not for people who are regularly expose their phones to dirty or wet environments nor for people who constantly drop their phones. If you’re someone who is pretty gentle on electronics, though, I don’t think you can get a more minimal or stylish case than Apple’s leather offering.

    Leather wears well with this color. Q: DON'T LIKE SCRATCHES? A: DON'T GET Q: LIKE SCRATCHES TO SHOW CHARACTER? A: GET Q: WILL IT PROTECT MY IPHONE X 256GB WHITE $1,000+ EXCLUSIVE EDITION? A: ANY IPHONE X WILL BE PROTECTED ON A WAIST HIGH DROP ON ROUGH CONCRETE. Q: WILL CONCRETE SCUFF MY CASE? A: YES, DON'T CRY IT'S FINE, A FEW DENTS AND SCUFFING IS NORMAL. Q: HOW LONG WILL IT LAST? A: (LONG STORY AHEAD) ORIGINALLY WHEN I BOUGHT A SIMILAR CASE LIKE THIS IT WAS FOR THE IPHONE 6S PLUS, USED IT FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS, THE LOWER CORDER EDGE OF THE CASE SNAPPED (A LITTLE BIT) BUT STILL WAS FINE, IT GOT TO A FADDED BROWN, ALL IN ALL A GREAT CASE THAT LASTED FOR 2 YEARS!!!!....with the usual dropping (about 30 times), scuffing (almost every week or every other week), and spilling of COCA-COLA, COVFEFE, AGUA, AND (bleep). And if you read this far, CONGRATULATIONS on YOU, and if you would like to know what the last part is, comment or UPVOTE on my review.

    I’ve wanted to use the Apple Leather Case again. Used one on my 5s and it was my favorite case ever for several years. The case no doubt is quality and durable but thin and a nice grip for the iPhone X. My issue comes down to Best Buy with Apple Pay. I purchased Airpods from Best Buy online with Apple Pay no issues. This time I tried to purchase the case. Totaled 39.88 on Apple Pay. Best Buy then proceeded to cancel the order. So I ordered it again for 39.88 with Apple Pay. This time Best Buy says invalid transaction and makes me pay a different way as well as charging me like $1 more. So I added my debit card to pay finally. Right now Best Buy still has my two charges for 39.88 pending as well as the actual 40.41 price. I have zero issue with my debit card. I have more than enough money in my account to pay for it with Apple Pay yet Best Buy declines it twice. They still haven’t returned that 79.76 in failed transactions to me for now a full week. I’ve never had any issue with Apple Pay. If anything Best Buy is cranky Apple Pay made me pay not even a full $1 less and declined my card for that twice. On top of that I receive the case all though quality it has scratches all across the back as if somebody opened it before sending and the box was damaged as well. Hopefully Best Buy can return my money and do something about the scratches up case I received.

    Not What I Had Hoped For

    I have always used the silicone cases, but the last two I had have fallen apart at the edges. Figured I would try the leather case, but am not so sure I like it. I had no case for a couple days while waiting for this case and the phone nearly slipped from my hand and pocket several times. When using this case, it still feels about the same - like I am going to drop it, or like it will slip out of my pocket at any time. The leather also feels cheap and has lines on the back that do not look nice at all. The nice thing about the case is the fit. I find other non-apple cases just don't seem to fit the same, or are designed for multiple iPhones, which just doesn't work well. I cannot say I would recommend this case, which is a bummer, but it is not the worst case I have ever had either.

    Warning: Destructive, Not Protective

    The leather case uses a metallic wire around the rim. This metal wire was exposed on my case and causes scratches to my phone's metallic sides. It is also sharp enough where it scratches skin and can damage clothing it comes in contact with. Apple care does not cover either the damage to the phone cause by their own case due to their choice in design and materials. nor does it cover the replacement case, despite both being within the warranty period. My device has no other scratched visible to the naked eye except for what the apple case has caused. I have had leather cases before and this is the first time I have seen this happen. How can something meant to protect have an element which does damage instead.

    Let's get this out of the way: this case is expensive. However, the quality here beats many other cases on the market which, to me, justifies the cost. Here are some great features of the case: -The leather quality is EXCELLENT. It's a soft european leather. But even though it feels soft, it hasnt really been destroyed by my carelessness. There are a few dents and scratches (and ive dropped this thing quite a bit), but nothing catastrophic. which brings me to my next point. - This thing is slim, but still offers pretty good protection. I've dropped this thing a few times, and fortunately have not cracked my screen yet. I don't think this case would survive a huge/hard fall, but for most spills and drops it seems to be fine. the edge of the case is slightly raised to protect the screen. the bottom covers the corners but is open, but that has not caused any issues thus far. Overall, I recommend to those looking for a premium case.

    I loved the leather cases on my previous iPhone but the fact that it took nearly a month to "break it in", before that the power and volume buttons were really stiff, just made it a difficult sell. Well starting with this generation that's no longer an issue! They have dedicated buttons that are not part of the leather portion of the case that make the actuation an absolute joy!! On top of all this the case is made of really high quality leather, its stiff but not too stiff *snicker* and the quality is immediately noticeable. Buy this case really nails home the point that it's really the little that can make or break the case for a user. But don't take my word for it, go out to your local BBY and try it for yourself!

    First off, I don't like cases on any of my iPhones. However, since it cost $500+ to replace the glass on the back of the iPhone X, I figured it was worth getting some sort of case. The Apple Leather case is very nice. I love the buttons on the side since they are actual buttons. My two complaints: 1. I don't like how the mute button works. They just cut a hole in the side for you to turn it on/off and that is tough to get to. 2. The leather itself is not as "grippy" as the phone. It may get better over time as leather ages but I wish it was a little more grippy. I have heard the silicon case is better in this regard. Overall not a bad case.

    I bought this for my iPhone X on release day. My first thought was it feels like synthetic leather. It has very little leather like texture. No big deal though.. I dropped my phone for the first time about a week into having it. It was about a 2’ drop onto concrete. It peeled the whole top smooth layer of leather off of the top corner, now it’s suede like texture. Looks terrible. Wish I would’ve went with the other case I was considering when buyin this one.

    I loved the way this case looked and the reviews were high, add that it was on sale and I had to have it. However, after only a few days, this case has so many scratches it looks like I’ve had it for a while. I’m not happy about how bad it is starting to look after just a short period of time. I know the case is supposed to protect the phone but what’s the point of getting the leather Apple branded case if it’s not going to look good. The asking price alone would make you think it would be more durable. Yes it protects my phone, but I wouldn’t recommend this case.

    This case fits like a glove, as expected from something with the Apple logo on it. Button covers have just the right amount of feedback. The cutout for the front is absolutely perfect and will not affect the full use of the massive edge to edge touchscreen on the X. The case is just deep enough so that when you lay it flat on a surface the camera will not be resting on said surface. Soft to the touch and just a little slippery like a real leather case should be. Unless you are a mechanic with oil all over your hands, the case will not slip out of your hand like some may suggest. Love it! Recommend it!

    I have had the same Apple leather case on my iPhone 6 for 5 years so I did the same for Xs. Fit and feels mostly the same. They changed the buttons to a separate plastic piece so it has a much better feel and feedback (previously I had to hold hard on the leather). I have had more incidents of slipping out of my hand so far maybe because of the larger size of the Xs or the leather material. The leather feels mostly the same, maybe slightly smoother. I actually liked the grippy-ness of Apple's silicone case which I got for my family.

    I feel very good having this phone case, knowing that Product (RED) supports Aids Awareness. Whatever little difference we can make can help push the boulder of change that much further. The quality is great and the color is beautiful. I’ve had the case for some time and the leather has aged quite nicely. I would definitely recommend. I love Apple and this case matches the quality of their amazing technology.

    Nice Leather But Not A Good Case

    I see that most people love this case and I typically love Apple products, but not this one. First it's too slippery and the iPhone X is heavy. I'm afraid that I will drop the phone. Also, we got two. The one for my phone isn't shaped right so parts of the case are barely higher than the screen. Also there is no protection at the bottom front of the phone. It would be very easy the hit this part of the phone with something. This is like a beautiful shoe that is bad for your feet- we've all done that!

    I've always avoided the Apple branded cases because I thought they were pricey and how can generic cases be any worse? Well, I decided to get one during one of Best Buy's sale to cover my brand new iphone X. I have been very happy so far and it's changed my opinion. The leather feels very nice to the touch. The case fits perfectly snug with no weird gaps. The best part though definitely is the buttons that Apple chose to use on this case. Very high quality feel. I chose the tan color because patina and indigo stains. What up /r/rawdenim?

    The iPhone X Product Red Leather Case is a replacement for a few previous cases, all of which fell short for one reason or another. This case is a keeper, and I've kept it on my phone the longest. It's slim enough to fit into my car phone holder, doesn't add any weight to the phone, has just enough traction to keep from slipping out of my hand, and isn't bulky at all. A month has gone by with daily use and it looks just as nice as when first purchased. Well worth purchasing!

    This is my favorite iPhone case. It’s not too thick so it fits in your pocket without leaving an outline, and it weathers BEAUTIFULLY. Over time it gets that weathered leather look, that is unique in a way. It provides moderate protection, I’ve dropped my phone multiple times, from various heights, on concrete, pavement, hard wood, etc. and while it may scratch up the phone I’ve never had damage.
