    Silicone is silicone so if it attracted lint last year, assume it'll do the same this year. As for which is better between silicone and leather, that will depend on your likes and needs. Personally, I prefer leather.

    I've had the leather case on my iPhone 6 which lasted well. It did wear and didn't look new for long but I liked the aged look. It was the black case so didn't suffer from staining or if it did you never saw it!

    I've now got the silicon case on my 6 plus. Obviously I've not had it long so can really comment on the wearability but I haven't had much of an issue with lint. I went for the antique white color which works well with the silver/white iPhone.

    I think it may look dirty eventually but hope it can clean with some soapy water or similar?

    I've experienced the lint attracting silicone with cheap cases and they are a nightmare to keep clean. This case is not like that.

    Hope this helps!

    I would go with leather. For me, leather cases have better grip and feel good.

    Yes - The silicone cases attract lint and dust , u need to wipe it off. IDK, something feels weird in that material after few weeks. the case is just SO slippery you can not hold it with one hand it just slides slowly down your hand

    Leather feels more premium and classy

    Yes it attracts lint. I just blow it off when it happens. Feels fine to me. I like the leather too but right now I'm using the silicone. I'm sure I'll switch back to leather at some point as well.

    The silicone case attracts "grime" more than obvious dust and lint like typical silicone cases.

    The more you break it in the more slimey and odd it feels. And as someone mentions above, the slipperiness combined with the weight I'd the phone make it slide down through your grip. It's really odd. I returned mine.
