    I've been using the leather case on my iPhone X for about 9 months now and my experience with it has been very positive. Although it is a little pricy ($50), the quality of the leather feels premium and it has done a great job in protecting my phone.

    The only thing that I would like to point out is that the leather does show wear over time as it can be scratched/worn out by holding it. However, this isn't really a negative as the phone case seems to "age" with your phone and the wear gives the case a more rustic look as time goes on.

    I like my orange leather case for my black 8+. It has darkened in the first couple weeks a bit and I really like the look and feel of the case. Also, it’s easy to remove- I occasionally use the phone naked and appreciate not having to spend a long time to get the phone out.

    The leather cases are great. Not dust magnets like the silicon ones. Very durable. A little slippy the first 2-3 weeks. But, after that they have good grip.

    I’m a big fan of them. Had one for my last few iPhones including the 7+ and now X. Love how they age and become personal over time. As mentioned, they are slippery initially but that doesn’t last long.

    Never have been a big fan of Apple’s quality for their leather goods. For that price I shop around.

    In my experience with two iPhone X phones, it has.

    Yes, looks flush but the case extends a millimeter or two beyond the camera housing.

    Pretty good look at it here. It hasn’t been an issue for me with the 7+ and X leather cases.

    This is the Berry leather. It has aged pretty well, doesn’t look “dirty” imo. I am not worried about the bottom being exposed for daily use, but when I’m on vacation at the beach or know that I’m gonna be in a wet or rough environment then I definitely throw it into the LifeProof so I don’t have to worry.
