    Ive never liked these cases but for some reason I am considering it this time. I would probably go with this one though. I have a wallet through them and the leather is very high quality

    I’m interested in the folio cases, but not 100% sure yet.

    Really wish the bottom was covered (and with wireless charging / no headphone jack, it would seem like could add the little bit of extra protection at the bottom)

    For those who’ve used folio cases on a phone, do you ever notice any light “lines” or faint impressions on the phone glass from the grooves (or possibly cards or something) from the front of the case?

    I feel like sometimes I see these impressions on my iPad (when it’s on a completely white screen) & I use the smart case.

    It was lines across the screen and it actually wore down the coating a bit. Luckily I ended up cracking the screen totally and then got it replaced then I got a plain leather case. I'll probably get the Apple saddle leather case.

    Wonder if it'd still shut ok with a screen protector. Standard film should be ok but a tempered glass maybe not.

    Stuck on Cosmos Blue or Taupe. Don’t know if I want a neutral color or some pop.

    a good thing about these cases, is that the screen won't shatter, if you drop it.. I've done that many times with my 7 plus

    Appears to be the most popular color as it’s backordered 2-3 weeks!

    Folio cases aren't for me. But out of the current options, I think the taupe looks the best.

    It’s a must have for a guy who is out and about with basketball shorts on lol. Keys, Wallet, & Phone combo is dreadful.

    I like to know what holds the cover closed ? Does it use some sort of mAgents?

    I keep find myself loving this case. I am going to order this and see what I think. I love this shade of blue, especially if it matches well with the Apple Watch band counterpart.

    Yeah I love the color too. I like the watch band, but sadly my wrists are too small to fit most of the official Apple bands. I am getting the Obsidian Nike band which is sort of similar. Both dark shades of blue.

    Love it, but too expensive currently.

    Any good knock offs like the sleeves for the iPad ?

    As some have said, yes, too expensive - though very nice looking and quality leather.

    My problem with ANY folio case is what do you do when you want to take a photo?? The cover has to dangle while you aim. I don't like that at all.

    Yea exactly I tried a folio case but it’s a pain when you want to take a photo. They should have cut something h out of the front cover so it doesn’t have to flap when you use the camera.

    What's wrong with the flap hanging down when taking photos?

    Always use my thumb on the volume-up button to take my photos, can't see how it's a problem.

    Supposedly it's smart like iPad's

    But I've never had an experience using a case with a flap

    I've always liked the idea of ditching my wallet though

    Do you think it's worth it?

    More pros or cons?
