I would be interested to know the colors that everyone selected and to see if there is a common theme with certain colors wearing faster than others or if it just seems to be hit or miss. So if you could post what color you had that would be great.

What I have read is the black one the only one that doesn't wear as fast.

I got the black one because the dirt that the case picks up over time is not so obvious.

Does anyone know if a similar style case exists for the iPhone 4S? My wife loves the case and would like it for the 4S.

Thanks a bunch!

I heard that from a few people now...
How did it break?

Simple act of removal was what did it in for me. It happened several weeks s/p picking it up.

----------

The answer is a resounding "NO". I did love the feel and look of the case. However, less than a month of using the case it looked horrible and worn. I had the product RED.
Looks horrible? Mine is darker on the edges than yours and I say that's "normal" coloration. You have oil on your hands/face/body. That will get on the leather and darken it. Other than the break in mine I love the look. I think people's expectations are silly if they want the leather to never change color.

Does the black case get lighter due to sweaty hands?
A bit of a wierd question, I know... ;)

Yes horrible. I don't mind the color fading which did happen but the wearing of red to black is unacceptable. Especially in less than a month of normal use.

Got the black one and i'm absolutely happy with it. Especially now i know a way to easy remove the case it's just an amazing case.

Just so that everybody knows. Try to remove the case from the bottom. Pop out both bottom corners and push the phone out the case from the back. It takes me just 2 seconds now to remove it :)

I was not at all happy with my red and tan cases...they ended up looking horrible rather quickly, but I have been extremely happy with the black one. You get all of the great things about the case and the black doesn't show the wear.

If you love the Apple cases and want to use it, the black color is the only way to go.

The black looks great, but I remove my case often and the case just doesn't feel like it'll hold up well over time. Other than that, I generally like the case although I still don't think it's worth $40.

First I had the project RED. Love the color when new. HATE the color when dirty. I found no 'safe' way to clean it. Exchanged for black. Hides the dirt, but BORING.:(
