    That looks nice, I've been thinking about the case as well. I have the same color Smart Cover currently

    I just picked up the same combo this week for my new iPad mini 4. I have a leather SmartCase on my iPad Air 1. I love this combo so far: light, minimal, and actually improve the comfort of the mini with bare aluminum with sharp edge (the iPhone 6 is smoother and more comfortable to touch).

    What is awesome about this combo is that the cover when folded back will be held strongly against the back which is a big deal for me. I found the fact that my iPad Air 1 SmartCase cover flop around when folded back really bothersome.

    The only small drawback with this combo is that it does pick up lint. A leather option would be nice. I looked at leather folio options out there and virtually all of them are clunky, like binders one would put a paper notepad in. Sena Future Folio is the only exception so far. It does however looked bulkier with a card and paper slot, and I have no idea if its magnetic cover is strong enough to hold the cover when folded back.

    Are there other leather option out there?

    I wonder if different colors have different finishes. I bought the lavender case and cover and it never attracts lint and I definitely do not live in a dust free environment. It's my first apple brand case and I'm really enjoying how the case maintains the thin and light qualities of the mini. I had a Durafolio case for my iPad Air and it's so heavy in comparison.

    My grey iPhone 6 silicone case was really bad about lint. I had it my pocket for an hour and it was a mess. I returned it for the green case and haven't had a problem. It's strange.

    The camera adds a few pounds to it :)

    It looks really slim to me in person. It's probably the most minimal front and back cover with decent protection.
