I have a Silver iPhone X and I recently paired my phone with a white Apple Silicone case! And while it indeed is a striking combination, it unfortunately attracts too much lint that sticks to the silicone and makes for an unsavory touch. Now I'm thinking of trying leather instead. Any suggestions on what looks good with Silver. I know it'll barely be seen, what with the black front, but it will have stainless steel accents, so some color thought can go towards it :p

I hate silicone myself. I got the Apple leather case in Saddle. But it doesn’t show the pearly white back.

It’s been hard to find photos, and I’ve been asking myself the same question. I ended up with the dark aubergine case for a change. Previously had a matte 7 and saddle brown which I loved, but wanted to change it up. I might post a pic when my X arrives on Friday when I have the actual phone in hand; I picked up the case at the Apple store and played around with it though and think it will be a fun but also classy colour.

I like cosmos blue, black leather and the red case are beautiful on it you can go to an Apple store to try them but if you can’t then honestly all the leather cases look great when you put them on your phone they look beautiful regardless

There are so few choices. It should be really easy. Just pick the one you like. Come on, you can do it.

It's not my preference, but the Taupe has matching silver aluminium buttons.

Watched this decent roundup earlier. Taupe's shown at 4:04...

Warning: There's a high chance it'll look 'dirty' before the other leather shades, as it is a lighter tone.

You won't see any phone except for a tiny bit on the bottom with the leather case. Go with the color you like.


not entirely true. u will see the stainless steel border around the camera in the back. small detail, but makes a big difference for people who are into their phones. need to find a color that goes well with SS instead of the balck SS in the space gray phone

Black here, nice contrast with the stainless steel accents.

Someone at my work has one for his 7+ and man does it look good. Hes had it for about 3 months and its all worn down and honestly i hated how they look worn in pictures/videos but holding it really sold me on it... i bought it 5 minutes later lol

Oddly, I sent saddle brown back. I know lots rave about ‘patina’, but it just kind of looks dirty to me. :eek:

No offense intended to saddle brown lovers.

true. i was told if you periodically clean it that it wont look AS bad/dirty. This is my first leather apple case so i gotta be careful.

Dark colors go well with black.

All colors go well with Silver.

Cosmos Blue is the best color in my opinion.

I really do love mine so far. Such a great color. I hope it ages well.

I've been giving thought to picking up the Saddle Brown case as well but I'm not a big fan of the color at the outset. I really do love how it ages and looks like an old worn out saddle though from the photos I've seen.
