    By the way, I'm about to pick up my Element case. I'll share a pic but not as soon as I get it. I want to have some alone time with it before I share it with the world.

    It's called character, Apple leather haters. It's meant to be worn, not kept safe and pristine.
    Love Apple Leathers, have 4 different flavors.
    I have leather jackets that are well over 10 years old and they don't show the wear my Apple Leather case has shown with 2 days of gentle use.

    I believe this "European Apple Leather" is tissue paper thin.

    Have you ever compared the Peel to the Spigen thin fit?
    Night and day... The Peel case is like there is nothing on the phone at all. The only time I even realize its on my phone is when I go to press a button since they are ever so slightly recessed from the minimal thickness of the case. The Thin Fit is much thicker, not horrible, but not paper thin like the Peel.

    Thank God, Apple doesn't make jackets, shoes, belts, wallets ))

    Just got off the phone with Amazon myself. Thursday I'll have my RED Sector case. Saw the pics of green and DROOL. I was excited Amazon did me right on Wetsuit deal. Person and phone said they didn't really care was nearly double, as long as it was shipped and sold by Amazon. I ALMOST got he Leather Element but at last minute decided Red Sector was THE one. May still get he black leather backed on tho

    Just thought I'd give an update on my white Playproof. Haven't had any discoloration or dinginess problems which I was slightly worried about due to it being white. Also, after seeing the reviews on the darker colors showing fingerprints I can say that I have not noticed that at all on the white. When I read about that problem I took a close look and I can only see it if for example I'm sitting in my slightly darkened living room (for watching movies/etc) and the light on the other side of the room is on and I angle the phone just right. In other words, normal use you can not see it on the white and unless I had read about the darker colors showing them and tried to look for it, I probably never would have even realized that it could show them like that.

    What's up with that? I've been a member here for 13 years and they have to approve my pics now?

    I'll just post them one by one. And yes, it's the Zagg Lux. Matches perfectly IMO!

    There is one minor imperfection on the back on the Citron color on the left side by my thumb. Can you see it and do you think it's a big deal? I usually wouldn't mind it but this case wasn't cheap and would want it to be perfect.

    You're going to LOVE it. The feel in hand can't be compared to any other case. It feels so solid and at the same time the carbon fiber back feels so soft and comfortable against my fingers.

    My collection is complete.

    1 boss leather case (Vaja)
    1 boss tough case (Element)
    2 leather cases for midweek evenings (black and tan)
    2 silicone cases for edc use (ocean blue and cocoa)
    1 tough waterproof case for when the environment warrants it (black LifeProof Frē).

    I'll be jettisoning the Spigen ultra hybrid v2, the UAG plasma, the playproof, and the generic frosted eBay case thru my YouTube giveaways more than likely.

    If it was me I would exchange it over that spot. For $150. if should be pretty flawless. What kind of padding is on the inside edges to keep the phone from getting scratched?
    Can you post some pictures showing the inside of the case and the packaging? Thanks.

    The only way i could get a life proof fre with a with a clearer screen is to buy locally and check the numbers first, but that means paying $129 AUD ouch, so got a UAG Metropolis for $50. Have had a few UAG's before but not this one.

    So far:
    Easy to get on and off.
    Nice feel.
    Light
    Microfiber inside the cover is excellent.
    Buttons easy.
    Only a few mm thicker than a standard UAG case.
    Not advertised but will adjust to use as a stand.
    Only holds 2 cards but didnt buy it for that, just wanted good protection with a screen cover. I hate screen protectors.

    I have been just using the Apple leather black (yes they do mark easy) in my Brodit car holder, but had a accident last Friday so have a hire car for 3 weeks and need a bit more protection in and out of it.

    Finally! Someone bought this dang thing! I've wanted it for a long time but can't find anyone on here that actually owns it! Thanks for the review!
