    Worth the expense

    You can get leather cases a lot cheaper, but the official Apple one is a perfect fit and well made.
    It's starting to discolour very slightly, but that's only to be expected with a light colour.

    If it gets too discoloured I'd buy the same again, it's really nice.

    Brilliant case for 6S Plus

    I bought this case (black) with the phone when it first came out. I’ve dropped the phone a number of times over the years and there’s never been any damage. As others have said the case fits beautifully and is great in the hand. My only complaint is that the raised area for buttons eventually flattens making it difficult to feel where they are if using in the dark.

    Looks beautiful when it's new. Not so much a week later.

    I love things with that saddle leather look (messenger bags, binder covers, phone cases), so I recently purchased this. Perfect out of the case. But in a few short days it became dingy and started taking on color from my pants and jeans. If my jeans were new with fresh dye, I might understand. These were a year or two old. Case looked horrible and is no longer being used. I had previously purchased black leather, and of course, it held up very well.

    Great case

    This case is great, a lot of people get upset due to the fact that it scratches and wears easily. However, it is fine hand crafted leather that WILL wear and scratch easily. In my opinion it gives the case more character than something brand new and shiny. All in all its a great case and I would buy it again.

    Looks great, stains easy.

    Case looks and feels great! I've had it for 48 hours and the only issue I have is that it stains extremely easily. Was hoping it would hold up well especially for it being so expensive. I would probably recommend getting the black leather case instead.

    Wears out quickly

    The five star reviews for this product were probably written shortly after receiving the case. I have had mine two months, and it has become very worn and grubby. I use my work iPhone as much if not more - the cheap leather case I got for that is six months old and in vastly superior condition.

    Avoid this - it looks good at first but it is very cheaply put together with a thin finish. A premium accessory ought to be built to last. Maybe the darker dyes fair better.

    Awesome look, Great Feel!

    This is a Beautiful case has a very elegant look, it has aged nice, it is real leather so like a good wallet or belt it will look even better with age.
    I absolutely love this case, wish I had spent the little extra cash on this case earlier, don't hesitate, buy it now.

    Lasted only for 6 months

    I don't think that I'm a heavy iphone user and I usually take care of what I have, but this leather case only lasted for 6 months and it started to peal and come off around edges. Unbelievable.

    A very, very nice case

    Have been through a few cases for my 6 plus but saw this and had to try it. It's my favourite case yet. It's an absolutely perfect fit and is made from very smooth leather which feels high quality to the hand. All of the controls work perfectly through the case. When holding it in landscape the case is very comfortable to your palm and fingers, unlike most of my other cases which just rub a little somewhere.

    I love saddle brown leather because of the way it changes over time. It hasn't happened yet but I'm fully expecting it to age and develop its own unique patina. I wouldn't expect that this is the case for you if you want a pristine new appearance forever (choose black or maybe a darker silicone case if you do).

    Elegant and classy!

    Have the Rose gold iPhone 6s Plus and this saddle brown leather case is absolutely classy and stunning on the phone. Great color and excellent premium feel. Have the Rose grey case as well and haven't noticed much wear on it. Its all about how you take care of the cases. Excellent and premium product! Highly recommended!

    Wears QUICKLY (1 month); Poor fit on some cases; Stretch marks and pits

    Cons:

    1. These cases wear out QUICKLY. within 1 month, the sides of the case (the sides with the buttons) were nearly completely BLACK. Apple calls this "patina," but this is not a normal leather patina. Maybe after 1 week of use, I would call it "patina." After 1 month of use, the leather was just worn through. The actual layer of leather on this case is very thin. If this is aniline dyed (which means the dye is infused into the leather), that means the leather is wearing out. The case just started to feel "rotten" in the hand. The back of the case did have a nice patina to it, which I enjoyed. But the black sides I could not deal with.

    2. As another reviewer has mentioned, some cases fit poorly. They are too tight, and the bottom corners flare out. Out of 3 cases, I only had one that fit correctly. Be very careful when putting your cases on your phone. you might end up scratching the phone finish. if you look on the inside of the case, the corners are not lined with that microfiber/felt lining.

    3. Some cases have a sharp bottom edge, while others have this tapered elliptical cut. The sharp edge makes it uncomfortable to hold the case if you are the type that rests the bottom of the phone on your pinky finger when using it.

    4. INSPECT your case before you leave the store. Cases are coming out of the box with stretch marks, pits and scratches in the leather, and other defects.

    Pros:

    A. If you happen to get one that fits without defects, I think (before it wears out) that this is one of the best cases out there for the phone. The fit and finish are excellent (if you get a good one). The leather feel is excellent and rich, and the grip is great imo. I have never had a problem with the phone slipping out of my hand. I can even use it one-handed without any problems.

    B. The saddle brown color is beautiful for the limited time that it is broken in just right: when it has a minor patina so that you have a tapestry of shades of brown, and just before the sides turn black. Unfortunately, this is short-lived.

    Tips: The buttons come out of the box very rigid, where you cannot register clicks well with the sleep/wake and volume buttons. You can break them in by using your finger to press in the buttons (while the case is off) repeatedly. Think about it like breaking in a baseball glove. After 10 minutes or so, you should get a nice button feel (sometimes feels like no case is there at all).

    For some cases with the tight fit, you will never get a good button click because the case is simply too tight and does not fit properly.

    In sum, perfect case without the defects (fit, wear, stretch marks/pits, etc.). I wish Apple would have kept the bottom lip for extra protection.

    These Cases do not properly fit the iPhone 6s.

    I have purchased 3 of the new leather cases for the iPhone 6s. And each is the same - an improper fit. 2 in saddle brown, and one in black, all 3 have been returned. I owned an apple leather case for my iPhone 6 which i put on my 6s and it was ironically a better fit than these new cases. Come on apple, to charge 60 dollars for a case that is not built properly. Every other case manufacturer has created a case specifically for the 6s. You are squeezing your 6s into a case that is clearly designed for a 6. Make 2 cases please. All 3 cases have the same problem, in that the bottom corners do not wrap snug on the phone. Think i am wrong? flip your case upside down and look at the back from the top looking down to the bottom, and you will see the corners flaring out. Very disappointed with apple on this one, and i would recommend waiting for them to solve this problem.

    Case is too slippery and interferes with force touch

    I found using the phone naked was slightly too slippery for my liking. I bought this case to help give me a better grip on the phone. However, the case is also very slippery and was barely any better than not having one.

    In addition, the case's lip makes it almost impossible to utilize force touch for multi-tasking with your right hand (force touching the left side of the phone). The lip comes up too high over the front of the phone, causing the thumb to contact the screen too far away from the screen's edge to activate the force touch feature.

    The case does look fairly aesthetically pleasing, however. And certainly provides a level of protection against minor damage and scuffs.

    Expectations

    As for fit and finish, quality, it's fantastic. Yes this case will mark up. Yes the color will rub, darken or fade. It's leather! Allow it to age and it comes out really beautiful as aged leather does. Decent protection without adding bulk or taking too much away from the design of the iPhone. Might be expensive but so is the iPhone it's hugging. I'm fan as is a lot of my friends and family who have the same case.

    Richly Elegant

    This case is synonymous with the what Apple represents. Class! The brown is so rich. This case just makes any iPhone stand apart. I normally purchase designer cases because I've found the Apple cases to be somewhat plain. However this one is a keeper! It is a perfect accessory to any designer handbag. The color is very rich and wears well, unlike the lighter color cases. It's also very functional in that my phone is very well protected. I simply love it! Must Have!

    Worth the price

    I bought the Apple silicone case for my 6sPlus and didn't love it. So I returned it and got the Apple leather case in saddle brown. It feels amazing. It starts off slightly more slippery than the silicone, but within a week it had more grip, felt soft, and still slid in & out of my pocket easily. I had the leather case with my iPhone 6 and found the side buttons hard to press with it. This model's case fixed that issue. I can't say enough good things about this case.
