    Finally picked up a leather case today. Got the midnight blue. My black delivery was delayed by Matthew.

    Been noticing a lot of dust now at the edge of the black matte phone and black leather case. I am guessing it was there before too, but when my phone had a white face, I just never saw it. Forces more cleanings.

    I have the black leather and silicone, I have settled on the silicone although I may switch out at some point just for variety. The leather looks beautiful, but to me it's slippery and the thought crossed my mind that I might drop the phone with it on. The silicone has a nice tactile feel and does not seem slippery at all. Also, While the leather looks beautiful, I have found in the past the edges get very slightly dinged very quickly even with the best of care - it is leather after all. The silicone looks like the 1st day I pulled it out of the box.

    Yea. I def see that on my black phone too. I just blow some air on it or wipe it and it goes away. But yea, kind of annoying. Much less visible on my rose gold 6s last year.

    Yeah that's why I stopped buying SG iPhones in favor of ones with a white face. Jumped out the window with the matte black 7 and now my annoyance is back. LOL

    But the matte black is so sharp looking. I still love it.

    Is this a feature that we really need to "enjoy"? I'd imagine it's a feature that is cool if we ever experience an accident. But not one to use just because it's there?

    Thought I'd drop this in...since I've used the black leather Apple case on all my iPhones since the 5, but up until the most recent design update to fit the 7/7+ I have hated the way it takes so much pressure to press the power button. On the new 7/7+ leather cases, Apple has effectively addressed that issue (obviously, I wasn't the only frustrated one) by adding metal side buttons for the power and volume adjustments. They work perfectly, giving a great feel and satisfying "click" when depressed, and take little pressure to work.

    Kudos, Apple!

    I agree, the metal buttons are a great addition. I really like the black case on the matte black phone. My wife is using the Saddle Brown on a Gold iPhone, looks great too. I know they're $$$ compared to Amazon $4 deals, but it's a luxury.

    It's not just a luxury, it's a better value in my opinion. The Amazon cases don't fit, are not nearly as well built, or hold up as good as the Apple ones. I've dropped my iPhones with the Apple case several times and all it did was put a gash in the leather...but the phone was fine. There are some $50 cases that won't do that! Yeah, the Amazon dealios are $4 or whatever but you're using a flagship smartphone...one that a lot of people paid $600-800 for. If you'd spend that much for a phone, and then cheap out on a case for it...I don't know what to say.

    It's why I have two leather cases from Apple.. one I am using now, and a back up for if/when it gets damaged or too dirty. Many say they find the leather slippery. I don't find that to be true. However if you compare it to a Speck Grip case, than of course the leather feels slippery. It's a good leather case, that fits like a glove. That being said, the bottom right side of the phone does pop out of the case on occasion.

    Mine fits nice and snug. And I have 3 different colors that I have used. No way it would pop out. That case may not but cut right.

    Same here. Never had any part of the phone pop out of the leather case.

    I have, however, been noticing that the left edge of the case -- the few inches just below the volume buttons creaks when I squeeze it. Anyone else see that? It is annoying if you're walking with phone in hand and tighten your hand around the phone. The sound and feel get annoying after awhile.

    I had that problem a couple of years ago on a iPhone 6 leather case. I swapped it for a new one.

    I am always pushing the bottom right back into the case. You're right, it may be a cut issue. Not sure where I can exchange it, since Apple is 120 miles away. Hmmm...

    Order a new one. Then return/ship the old back. Just a thought.

    I love my leather case. I've consistently been an advocate of the leather since the 6. But I will say, there are absolutely some $10 cases on Amazon that will protect these phones just as well as my leather. I say that because I own three of them. I've always cycled through them. I get the one leather case, and then a couple of the cheaper cases on Amazon. I've never noticed a difference in protection. I recommend a few of them for those who don't want to spend the Apple premium.

    I personally side with the idea that these cases are a luxury. Because there are absolutely cheaper options that protect the phone just as nicely. And theres nothing wrong with that. We like nice things and we are willing to spend the money on them.
