    Hey. new here!

    I don't know which to choose.the leather case or silicone?
    I tried many cases from Ebay. slim tpu, Transparent/ clear, etc. Did not really like them.

    Then I saw in the store the apple case, looks very luxury and thin? (BUT can't check it cause it's in a sealed box and can't open) .

    What Do you prefer? I don't want to be disappointed . it's expensive case here.

    Thanks in advance for helpers.

    I have them both, not for the 5s, but for the 6 and 6 plus.

    I prefer the leather case because it slides in and out of my pocket easier. The silicone is not bad and doesn't really stick to my pocket liner, but it is not as easy to pull out.

    is it slim?
    I heard that the silicone attracts lint and dust is it true?

    I have not had lint or dust issues with the green ones I have. Can't give you advise on the thinness since you are looking at the 5s version and mine are for the 6 and 6 plus. However those are thin, almost like nothing on the phones

    Oh and welcome to iMore!

    So I want to the store, I debated between black and navy blue, then I tought to buy the white silicone.

    The manager store showed me the leather black case on her phone ) very excited about the leather, and the "feel" of it,
    she said that some people dont like the silicone casuse it's feels like it's have a hand cream on the case...(?)
    and collect fibers.

    I purchased the leather cover.

    I have black leather and red silicone, I don't use either though as I use a ZooGue Social Pro in black. The silicone attracts to much dust and I don't like the bottom being exposed on them both.

    I have the brown leather case on my 6.

    Love it. Love the way it feels, the snug fit, the coverage and the embossed Apple logo.

    I trail a good few cases, often spending 100+ every time I get a new phone before finding the right one. Now that I have this, I think I'm going to stick with the official cases in future.

    Yes, I like the leather case better too. I've used both too. I found a real cheap "leather" case on eBay for my 6+ that works and looks great!

    Does anyone have both this year's iPhone 6s silicone case and last year's version?

    I've read that this year's quality is better than last year's and it doesn't collect lint as much. I've also read that the finish is similar to the Apple Watch sport band.

    Can anyone confirm?

    I already have a saddle brown leather case but would get the silicone too if it's similar to the AW band.

    Which screen protector are you using with your case? I'm picking up an Apple leather case and will want to have a screen protector - probably tempered glass.

    I would go for a leather case, cause silicon cases attract dust, and I don't like the feeling of silicon case. In my opinion, leather case makes people look cooler.
    I agree, and it's all about the KOOL factor.....SMILE

    Same here, I use to purchase anywhere from 5 to 8 cases per device in the past, but with my iPhone 6 plus I purchased the Black apple Leather case the same day I purchased my 6 Plus and it was perfect. I haven't wanted/needed another case, It's the PERFECT combination with my Space Gray 6 Plus...IMHO

    I like the look of the Apple leather case, but neither it nor the silicone case offers much protection... and the silicone case is a tremendous dust/lint magnet. I owned one for about 15 minutes once.
