    Bear with me, this will be my first review as well as first post.

    I've been looking for a slim case to keep the small profile of my iPhone 6, but I've tried on the apple leather and silicon cases and hated them.

    Eventually my interests turned to a wood case, and made the investment into a carved Solid wood case. As wonderful as a case as this was, it was just too thick for my liking and felt way too bulky in my hand.

    Enter me stumbling upon Miniot, a company from Holland that was also making full, solid wood cases. The profile of their cases looked incredibly slim judging by the pictures on their website.

    First impression out of the box was that the wood is legit, wonderfully crafted, and the attention to detail is superb.
    Installation was easy, although a little nerve wrecking because the wood is pretty thin, and flexes a bit, but it has survived many removals and re installations with no signs of weakness yet. Just slide on the top half, then the bottom and you're done.

    The fit is perfect, not loose at all. The camera lines up perfectly with the cutout, as do the speakers, charging cable, and headphone jack.

    My only complaints are the production/shipping times... Took about seven weeks to get my hands on it.
    Also the charging cable cutout is cut only for the original lightning adaptor from Apple, so third party chargers don't fit. At least my car charger and Verizon ones don't, but detaching the bottom half isn't too big of a deal, so this one is fairly minor to me.
    I don't have any other headphones other than the apple ones, so I can't comment on the headphone jack, but I'll assume it's the same issue as the charger.

    Overall I love this case. It's beautiful, very slim, and high quality wood. 9/10

    First, welcome to the forum!:) And next, thanks for taking the time to post the review and your pictures. That appears to be a beautiful and well crafted case and I'm sure that it compliments your Iphone 6 very nicely. Again, thanks for sharing.

    Hi Stephen, thanks for the review. I have a question: can you reach the mute button on the left side of the phone with your fingers? Or do you have to use a pencil or something to toggle it?

    Thanks

    Do you have any more photos of your phone in the case?
