    So I bought my iPhone 6s Leather Case in Rose Grey a week ago. Today I received my Phone and wanted to put my case on immediately.

    When trying to put the phone into the case, the top of the phone was already hard to get in, but it worked. Then you are supposed to just pop the bottom of the phone into the rest of the case, which I tried. But the case is so tight, that I had to put in one side first and then push and pull (the case) really hard to get that last corner in. It's so tight that the case actually moves away from the phone on the bottom.

    Now, when trying to get the phone out I really had some problems and I was really afraid to break my phone. Luckily I somehow got it out and tried to bent the case a little to flex it maybe, but the second try was just as hard.

    Now, is that the experience with everyone here? Should I get the case replaced?

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't bother...seems to be a common issue and most likely the replacement will be the same. There is a post in the accessories area about the same topic. I have a Midnight Blue and it too was hard to put on. Whether or not it has more give over time is yet to be seen, but I don't take my cases off often and by how tight it is I doubt anything will get in there.

    That case is defective. I am using my Midnight Blue Leather case from my iPhone 6 and it fits fine and looks nothing like that. The bottom part on yours is not right at all, I am sure Apple will exchange it no questions asked.

    My 6 Plus case is tight on my 6S Plus but still ends up fitting better than that. I'd return it and try the replacement on in store before i left.

    Yeah, will do so. Thank you guys. Also, this freaking case put the tiniest of all tiny little dents in my small white plastic frame that is found around the glass of your phone (depending on the color). I wanna SCREAM.

    See that tiny little black dot? Going over it with my finger nail, I can feel it.

    I'm using my 6 Plus leather case on 6s Plus, I could tell it's tighter but not to the extent you described.

    Are you sure that wasn't there when you got your phone....There really isn't even that much pressure at that part of the case its hard to believe it would chip glass.

    No doubt it is thicker. My Sedio Surface case for the 6+ is very tight so I ordered a couple for the 6S+ today. No doubt the phine a a little bigger.

    Its not the glass that's "damaged". It's that white plastic line that connects glass and aluminium. You can see it quite well and also feel it on an iPhone 6/6s +

    I could see if it was a hard plastic case but even the inside where it isn't the soft lining doesn't seem too hard. But obviously from your pictures something marked it whether it was from the factory or not.

    Same thing here. The bottom is having a really hard time covering the bottom corners.

    I will go to the Apple Store today and get it replaced. Will try on the new one right in store. Will report back!

    I have a black leather 6s case and its snug but not overly tight at all. Fits like a glove and only takes slight force to remove.

    Same the leather case on my 6s+ is tight but I'm sure in time it will get a little looser.

    The leather cases are always very tight when new. It breaks in over time and becomes easier to put on and take off.

    I bought an Apple iPhone 6 leather case from Best Buy last week and it fits my iPhone 6s perfectly. Also Apple no longer makes red leather cases for the 6 and 6s so if you want a red leather case you may want to pick One up before they sell out.

    I also have a red 6 case on my 6s. It's the same case I've used for the past year, so perhaps it's been loosened up quite a bit, but it fits the new phone perfectly.
