    Very bad quality.

    Cheap leather, Apple stamp is faded and doesn’t stick out, and the buttons are incredibly hard to press. Do not recommend.

    Tan leather SE case

    The leather is beautiful, I have. It's the Black and Tan leather cases. They look more and more beautiful the older it gets, the tan leather looks saddle leather and vintage. White silver iPhone with tan leather is sweet.

    Sound Quality

    I love the look, feel, fit BUT just about everyone I talk to on the phone complains about not being able to hear me clearly. Problem solved after I remove the case. :-( Yes, I have checked the microphone holes are clear. Maybe they're not positioned accurately. I'm going to have to find another case that functions better.

    7 Months later

    Beautiful leather case that protects better than you'd expect, it being slim and minimalistic. After about 5 months however, it started fraying at the edges. After seven months, it started falling apart completely, no longer holding the phone snugly in place. Not what I expect from a $40 case. The good news is I took it to an Apple store and they gave me a new one, no questions asked. This time around, I'm going to be really careful with it, to see if I can get it to last a whole year. I really do like the case, it's slim and classy so no biggy. I hope it lasts until the iPhone 8 comes out and I'll upgrade anyway, but just so you know, it may not be the most durable.

    Great case.

    It's a great case and feels good to the hand. Tight and thin so it does not ad bulk to my SE. I would buy this again anytime.

    Sadly this lovely case is a waste of $$$$$

    I loved the look and idea of this case. After about three weeks of use (never removing the case after I first put it on), it became loose and left the bottom left of the phone exposed. Of course it was right out of my return date and now Apple won't do anything about it. If I'd reviewed this item a day after I received it, I'd have given it 5 stars. However, after some use it loosen and unless you want the corners of your phone exposed...DO NOT PURCHASE.

    Seems Great To Me

    Not sure I get the negative points people have made. The leather is not particularly slippery at all. There are other grippier cases out there but most of those (excepting the Speck one that I have) also attract and hold lint like crazy. Silicone cases seem to be the worst in that regard.

    Fits great. Taking it on or off might slide the ring/silent switch, but pulling it out of a pocket doesn't. At least not for me. The corners don't seem to slide off either, as someone posted. As to the silver trim around the very edge of the phone being visible: it is. I think it looks fine that way though. Not a big deal. That trim is less than one mm wide. Doesn't look bad to me at all, but of course that's a very personal assessment.

    Someone posted something about the leather being stiff enough that the buttons are hard to push. Again, not my experience at all. Maybe some are stiffer than others?

    The other thing that some have pointed out is the "minimal" screen protection. This case does have a very small lip around the edge. Lay it flat on a table etc and the screen is certainly not contacting anything. Those who equate this with a lack of screen protection are overlooking what'll really mess up your screen though: a corner of something or a protrusion or what have you. What I mean is: If you drop your phone and it lands screen-down, how likely is it that it'll land perfectly flat on a perfectly flat surface? Not very. So... all the other cases out there that have more of a raised edge around the front are really only giving a false sense of security there.

    Some issues

    The case does not fit the phone solidly. Corners of the phone come out of the case. So much in fact that it pushes the button to silence the phone unknowingly. Therefore lots of missed calls and email alerts when this happens....which is often.. You have to train yourself to keep taking it out of your pocket and push the silence button back on. Very, very annoying. Big design flaw.

    Perfect compact case

    This is the same case as mine, which I have on a 5s. My first case was a clunky one that had to be worn on my belt. When its belt clip broke, and the manufacturer required too many steps to replace a $16 clip, I decided to go for this one. What's the point of having a case that is twice as weighty as the phone, anyway? This has been durable, offers reasonable protection, and allows the phone to fit in my shirt pocket. When I upgrade my phone to the new SE, I'll keep my case, because after 1 1/2 years, it still looks new.

    Beautiful case, just not the right fit

    I have the SE and like another user mentioned you see the silver trim of your phone which annoys me greatly! I wanted it to be the perfect case but it just doesn't cover enough of the front. I have a black phone & I wanted a solid black look but with that silver trim exposed it's just an eye sore for me. Not enough of a lip either to protect the screen. So disappointed as I love the leather. Have to return. :( Come on Apple! More coverage on the front please

    Almost Perfect

    I like a sleak case, as in, it almost looks part of the phone. This case almost did that for me except the front. I have the space gray iPhone. When I put the case on the phone it still exposed a silver lip around the front rim. To most folks this might not annoy them. I couldn't stand it. Had to return it right away. Shame because I like the look of leather

    Very Nice Case

    This case adds a little more bulk that I'd prefer, but the iPhone SE is already so small (and awesome :P) that it's not a huge deal. The case is soft and supple, and provides some add'l grip. It seems to provide adequate protection too, but I haven't had the misfortune of testing that just yet. It's definitely one of the better cases I've used on any phone.

    Beauty case, ZERO protection

    I know this product does not claim to 'protect' the phone, but why else do we buy cases? It's supposed to serve fashion AND functionality. Unfortunately this case only server the former, fashion. It's beautiful. Smooth, thin leather layer, gorgeous shade. I had the blue. It fits like a glove. It's beautiful to look at, great to touch, and also VERY slippery and very likely to sweep off your hands. And that is what happened to me, on a beautiful sunny day on a concrete parking lot. It slid right off my hand, my 2 day old iPhone SE, and since it's a thin layer of leather, it provided ZERO impact support, resulting on a shuddered screen. Little backstory on me: I am very careful with my phones, and I have had iPhones since the 4. Replacing it every 2 years, like a true apple disciple. And never have I had a broken iPhone. I have dropped my phones before, many times, but I was lucky to have bought the right kind of case before. I know sometimes the phone falls a certain way, and the iPhone has a glass face, so its not immune to breakage, but I do know, that if it wasn't for this slippery and frail case, I would not have had to shell an extra $140 to fix my 2 day old iPhone. Apple would not take responsibility, they claim they never advertised the case as a protection for the phone, but at least they did let me return the case, which after one minor fall, was scraped on all sides, and it did not look like the attractive case I initially bought.

    Alright

    Once your phone is in the case it is really hard to come out!! It has a soft touch for the iPhone to sit on which is good. However, I do not agree on the price but that my opinion.

    Better with age

    I am very happy with this case. Good fit and finish and couples nicely with my iPhone 5s. The case has developed a nice patina and the few chips in the leather from dropping, have smoothed into real life character blemishes as you would expect with good leather. I have the same leather on my iPad which also performs very well. This case protects the phone surprisingly well for such a sleek design. I will be outfitting my next iPhone SE with the same leather case.
