    Any other companies making leather cases? At $45, I feel like there has to be higher quality options out there

    I have the brown leather Apple case for my 5s and won't be buying another Apple case due to the extreme wear.

    Vaja cases.com has several really nice cases that I seriously am looking at buying.

    I'd love to find a leather case with full coverage on the top/bottom.

    saw that one as well. it is a nice looking case. can you post pictures with it on your iPhone? i'm curious to see how much lip there is and how snug it is around the corners. too bad the top is exposed. :/

    this is the one i ordered: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=20007492&postcount=15

    still hasn't arrived yet and is most likely PU leather, but that doesn't bother me, as long as the fit is perfect.

    FWIW,
    the apple case is well received and reviewed. As cost of cases goes, its neither cheap or overly expensive. My point is, while you can cheaper (or more expense) cases. The apple leather case appears to be one of the better cases.

    Noted. I'll buy the apple one anyways in the mean time, I've hardly seen any bad reviews

    You get what you pay for typically so don't be cheap when trying to protect your almost $1000 iphone.


    I use apple's case and like it a lot. Vaja has some really nice options out too.

    Would love a leather case with sufficient lip (for drop protection) and great grip for my 6+. Please share reviews on alternate cases with grip and lip. Thanks.
