    What kinds of wear is your case showing? And doesn't a screen protector bother you..? Haha

    Haha. Not at all. It's a clear screen protector. I like to protect my belongings especially when I know how much they cost. Here is how my case looks after over 10 months of owning it. How's your Space Gray looking?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1407755183.526654.jpg

    Oooo. I say it with every Apple leather case I see, but they look so nice when worn and torn.

    Yeah. I guess they are designed to be that way.

    I think the tan one looks the best worn. It would have been great if they made a dark brown leather case.

    I have had nothing but black iPhones since they came to Verizon. My space gray has been in an assortment of case and has been off an on with a screen protector (currently using a Zagg Glass which I love). Only mark on the phone is a very small (maybe 1/4 or 1/8 of an inch) scratch on the front need the right side. It's really hard to see, even in bright light, but I know it's there. I'm planning on upgrading to the iPhone 6 and am thinking about switching to white/silver. Thoughts?

    All a matter of preference. One thing I can say is I think the white is cleaner looking, and you don't get the fingerprints showing up as much on the white parts where black is horrendous. But I still like black the best

    It seems to me Space Gray scratches easier, so I plan on getting a White/Silver iPhone 6. And if it appeals to you visually, you should too.

    They both scratch the same.... Just it shows up more on the black

    Hell no...I cannot stand screen protectors. I have never used one on any device I have ever owned.

    To comment on the leather case...I had the red leather case when I had the gold/white model, but switched to the black leather case when I got my space grey model after selling the golds. This case is a decent enough case, though mine slips off the iPhone slightly from time to time (nothing major). I've dropped it quite a few times, and it's still mint. I think they're still over priced, but cosmetically, I prefer them over the other options out there so the price is what it is.
    What's wrong with glass screen protectors? They feel just like the screen itself.

    I have a glass screen protector and even though they feel good I can still tell it's on there. It has a cheaper feel than the real deal. That's just my opinion but I'll take it so I don't scratch my phone

    I like all of the colors and have had them all as well. I had the gold iPhone and I thought it may have been the best looking out of the three colors. But it doesn't look the best with a case. The space grey/black looks the best when using a case. The white/silver is right in the middle.

    From the placement of the scratches I have to ask-- do you wear earrings? I think they are a big culprit for scratching phones. That's why I always use a zagg screen protector.

    I've had my space gray 5S since launch and I don't have any scratches. In an Apple leather case but no screen protector.
    Same here. I inspect mine every week and still in mint condition since purchasing last November

    Mine is in perfect condition. Bought it when it came out, so it is an early one as well.
    I have a front and back Zagg invisi-shield on it.
