    If you have the official Apple 5S black leather case, and have had it for a while, can you comment on how it is holding up? Even better, could you post a pic? I am retiring my red one and am looking to possibly move into the black one if it hides the discoloration and dirt better. Thanks!!!

    Yours looks great. Here is my red one. The picture doesn't fully show how it looks in 'real life'. The edges are pure black and the sides are a darker red than elsewhere. I think most people like the aged look. Some prefer it. I personally think it makes my case look dirty and dingy so I have to retire it. But when I first got it.....that beautiful bright red.....GORGEOUS!

    I guess that's the advantage of the black case. The wear doesn't show. It's there but you just can't see it.

    Here are some shots from the side where discoloration may show.

    Hopefully you fare much better than I did. Mine was pretty flawless after several weeks. Now, approaching the 2 month mark, not so much.

    Had mine for several months now. Still looks great. Feels better now than the day I bought it.

    I had the blue one first. It looked worse than Finn's after about a week, even with the leather protector. I returned it for the black one.

    I pulled the trigger anyways but thank you for your input. I couldn't find black anywhere and all they had was yellow no red or black or even brown. Also how long did you have yours for?

    My red one honestly, is black. And the black one I bought I've been using and abusing for 2 months, doesn't look 2 months old at all. Get the black, and you'll have no discoloration whatsoever. It's black after all.
