    I recently got a midnight blue leather case for my 6s and I like it a lot more than the silicone case I had before. It feels better in the hand and doesn't catch on my pocket like the silicone does.

    However, I've noticed that it doesn't seem to fit the phone perfectly.. The two bottom corners don't fit very well around the phone, especially the corner that has the headphone jack. This is noticeable from the front and from the bottom. What could be the problem? I'm not using any skins on the phone. Should I wait a few weeks for the leather to set and then it should fit? Or should it fit perfectly right out of the box?

    I bough it from Apple's online store so I'm fairly sure it's not counterfeit.. should I return it?

    It should fit pretty snug. Could you post pictures?

    Are you referring to the bottom corner flaring out a little? If so, that's happened on all my leather cases. It'll stretch out over time.

    I'm still using my original 6 case and it hasn't warped or stretched since day 1.

    Yes, the bottom corners, especially the one where the headphone jack is, don't seem to fit perfectly.
    Here are some pictures I took with my iPad, hopefully you guys can see what I'm talking about

    If you're close to an Apple Store, take it in and see what they say. They'll swap it out if you want. My wife's leather case fits great and she loves it.

    Edit to add: it's hard to tell from the pictures and I don't have hers here to compare.

    Hard to tell from the pic but if you are near an Apple store I would show them and try a different one.

    I watchet DetroitBORG's review of the case here

    And mine looks exactly like this, you can see at the 1:52 and 2:48 marks that the bottom corner isn't perfectly snug. He says to give the leather a few weeks to set and that's what I'll do..

    Overall I'm loving this case. It feels much better than the silicone, and isn't hard to get out of my pocket like the silicone
