    Decided that I'm going to stick with the Spigen case I ordered. It should be sufficient.

    So the bottom being not covered is safe? I like the look just thought it may not be as safe.

    I just picked up a griffin case yesterday.

    I got my brown case on Saturday. Looks nice! Love the feel. Did a 10K race with it in the back pocket of my tights and it was fine. Love it so far. My navy leather case should be coming here sometime this week. I may just stick to the two leather cases for the time being.

    I have the iPhone 6 silicone case in black. I may get the black leather one later on but love the look of the silicone case; doesn't look cheap and it fits the phone well.

    Got the blue silicone for my 6.

    Love the leather, but it got dirty too easily with my 5s. (The 5s, my American travel phone, rocks a FabShell now from Speck.)

    I noticed that they went with darker colours for the new leather cases, which makes sense -- they look better as they darken from wear...

    For anyone who has the red leather case, how long have you had it and how is it holding up against wear and tear and dirt. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    My leather ebay case arrived from china today, so it took roughly two weeks. I love the feel and it's not slippery like the neo hybrid that it's replacing. The only problem I've noticed so far is that sometimes I have to hit the power button twice, I may need to try to reposition the case a little so that it's aligned better but other than that I love it.

    I took the case off and put it back on and now the power button works as it should.

    Bad news.
    This is the link for the 6plus leather case, they have everything except black in stock. They are completely out of leather for the 6. You'll probably have to e-mail the company and ask when they'll have more in stock for the 6. The ebay store is SINOYA TECH.

    Do you think it would be possible to take off and put on the leather case o couple of times, like once a day for example, without being able to spot any wear and tear on the edges?

    I have two of them (one brown and one blue) and I swap them out a few times a week. I'm pretty careful when i remove them and put them on and so far haven't seen any wear.

    Would you mind telling me how you do when you remove them and put them back on?
    Im asking about wear because its not like you can just open up the case, and take the phone out. No, you have to kinda snap it out and snap it back in again. And those edges and/or corners snapping in and out would eventually cause some wear. Even if you are careful, you still have to slowly snap it out and in for the case to come on and off.

    To put them on, I wiggle the top portion of the phone into the case and then push the rest of the case on gently. I think there is a diagram inside of the box that shows that. To remove, I gently pull off the bottom corners and peel the rest of it off. It's not always perfect but that's how I do it.

    This is honestly the first time I've had multiple cases for my iPhone. I usually just have one main case and never remove it except to clean the phone every so often. But I liked the leather case so much, i got two of them. I don't know how well these cases will wear over time with constant removal. Someone else may have to comment on that.

    Thank you! I will try that next time i decide to take it off.

    I dont mean the case will wear over time, but the phone (the edges and corners) from snapping the case on and off.
    Because like you said, its not always perfect. The only way to be sure the phone wont show wear from case coming on and off, would be if you were able to open the apple leather case and just put the phone in, and close it again.
    But they arent designed that way, you will always have to pull and push, snap it on.

    The inside of the leather cases are lined with felt so I don't think it'll damage the phone. Some of the cheaper cases would for sure though.

    The reason for the open bottom is due to the thin nature of the plastic used.
    Check out the Kate Spade leather case. It covers the bottom just like the Apple leather case for the 5S.
    It's the perfect leather case and is priced accordingly at $50.
    Unfortunately it has a fatal flaw!
    The cutout for the lightning charging connector is offset and you cannot charge the phone with the case on the phone!
    I tried looking at them at different Best Buy locations and they are all the same.
    A handy person with a Dremel could perhaps fix it but two things come to mind:

    This is a premium priced product and one should NOT have to do this to get it function as designed.
    And two, opening this cutout will make the plastic part near the edge of the screen dangerously thin and would probably break over a short time.

    With an open bottom like Apple has, this issue does not exist. It's not as pretty and could possibly be less protected (however the geometry suggests a drop where the bottom would strike first should keep the edge of the phone off the floor). A rough tar and chip driveway, probably not! Then again drops from waist height to a tar and chip driveway are likely to crack the screen due to contact with a stone anyhow. (this applies to most cases including otter symmetry, speck, tech21, etc.)

    Slim cases are just that. Nice to keep a device looking new (no scratches on the back from it sitting on an end table and spinning around when the cat jumps across it, for example). Small drops are usually no problem inside onto carpet/hardwood floors.

    Guys working on construction sites, riding dirt bikes, etc. are going to want something far more rugged for sure!

    True, but the edges of the case are still stiff.

    The inside lined with felt would protect the back of the phone, so there wont be any scratches. But the edges of the case are stiff and im thinking they can cause wear on the edges of the phone everytime you snap it in and out.

    I've been hearing really great reviews on the leather cases for the iPhone 6. I may have to give them a try. Plus the reviews from the 5S leather case were great too.
