    I'm not a case person. i had no case on my iPhone 5 but it was pretty beat up by the time i got my iPhone 6. i really like the sleek design of the leather case and the midnight blue paired with my silver iPhone 6 looks great.

    I pre-ordered the red leather case on best buy.com as they weren't available until Oct. 5th. No apple store near me and best buy has them @ $39.99, so $5 cheaper than apple i believe. I went in yesterday to buy my wife a Samsung EVO 840 SSD and they had their stock in of cases (none for the 6 Plus). All colors were available but i took the last midnight blue. I'll be returning the red once it comes in, it does look very washed out. not really red, more of a light red.

    the buttons are pretty responsive and once the leather breaks in, they should feel normal.

    Here's some photos i took. It looks and smells good!

    Just bought the same one. Love it. I had the black leather on my 5S. This is nice and dark.

    Thank you. I am most likely getting this set up and these pics just sold me. Going to Apple Store tomorrow.

    I was really turned off by the design of the iPhone 6/plus cases by Apple. But I've been watching plenty of reviews and I see how they rounded the corners at the bottom for drop protection. It's really starting to grow on me and I may get a black leather one when I go get my 6 plus. I'm just waiting on Moshi screen protectors now

    Okay, I am really tempted on purchasing this case. The midnight blue colour is sick... Would this colour look wornout in the long run?

    Very sharp. Very minimal yet very sophisticated look. I just wish they had closed the bottom up somehow.

    Looks very nice. I may have to exchange my olive brown for midnight blue for my space gray iphone 6. Olive brown looks nice and elegant, but the midnight blue looks stealth!

    Just curious, so your local Best Buy had the leather cases in stock? bestbuy.com shows the midnight blue coming soon, not even available for preorder or store pickup. I am going to call my local Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile store this morning to see if they have stock.

    Exactly!

    I have a Black 4S and I have been thinking of upgrading to exactly this combination. Silver iPhone 6 with the Midnight Blue leather case.

    Thanks for the photos, this is exactly the example I was looking for. :)

    My local Best Buy had most of the colors in stock yesterday, although their website still said pre-order. I bet you'll find one.

    thanks everyone. i'm really liking the case. again, i'm not a case person but this one adds minimal bulk and also adds grip. the design of this iPhone 6/6 Plus is just made to be slipping out of hands like it has with me. i'm glad I went this route.

    the buttons still "click" even with the case. not mushy at all. very responsive.

    I don't have an apple store in my city so that's the reason I pre-ordered it online through bestbuy's website. i still have an ETA of Oct. 5th as the delivery date but my local store has them in stock already.

    Leaving the bottom open means the case can easily be used with any speaker dock. No need for wobbly lightning extenders which often detach with the phone and then get put somewhere and lost.

    I originally copped the Brown leather case for the 6+ but ended up exchanging it for this one instead. The Navy blue on white looks really good! Good pics btw

    I checked with 3 local stores and a best buy mobile store. No dice. I have a $10 best buy rewards certificate that expires on 10/18, so I have some time.

    Yeah, I get it, but they didn't make a dock. Would be odd to design a product around what someone else might make for it... or not.

    I might still check them out... just not as "instant buy" for me than if the bottom had some protection from scratches and nicks too.

    case looks nice, just as with the 5S cases. I'm concerned how it will hold up over time.

    It's not a question of might. There are plenty of lightning speaker docks around. They started appearing right after the iPhone 5 arrived. I have a couple at home and they all work perfectly with this case.

    My midnight blue for my gold 6 + is much darker than your pics - wish it was that color in reality! My buttons work perfectly and the case fits like a glove. Already has a few scuffs, though, and I just got it on Friday. My guess it will get that lived-in look quickly. I did treat with Lexol leather conditioner before using so it smells great, too, and hopefully resists stains.

    Just received my midnight blue leather case and freaking love it! Doesn't add much bulk compared to the Spigen case I have.
