It's been almost two years, since I bought my iPhone 4 in 2010. I've always used it only with a leather pouch, no screen protectors, bumpers or cases. With accessories you rarely see any reviews, how they do in the long run, so I decided to take some photos and post them here. The item in question is Sena Arygle - http://www.senacases.com/apple/iphone-4s-cases/argyle/ This is how it is supposed to look out of the box. And this is after two years of extensive usage. Always in my jeans pocket, removing the phone at least 20 times per day.. The sides are perfect. No fraying, maybe the white stitches are a little less white, but nothing special. Same story at the bottom. There is some minor dust buildup on the inside between the stitches, that you cannot wipe with a damp cloth. Some minor fraying at the top backside. It's where you pull the strap. Same thing on the inside. And at the very top. Edges of the strap are a little worn. This is actually the major issue. When empty, the strap doesn't retract back inside the pouch. Also the pulling out isn't as smooth and sometimes it feels like it would snap (rendering the pouch useless). Still after two years, 20-30 times per day pulling out the phone... it's not so bad. The part, which pulls out the phone, has somewhat damaged (polished?) the rear glass in one part. It has a different touch to it and when you clean the phone with a damp cloth, you can clearly see the difference (the water stays behind). I cannot even imagine, what this would do to the new iPhone 5 aluminum back . All in all I am very satisfied with my purchase. It has served me well. Sena's reputation for quality products is (at least in this case) quite well deserved. The biggest problem is the pull-out strap and the fact that this model won't be made for the new iPhone 5.
