    Hi. I want to buy a new case for my iPhone 7 plus but I don’t know which one should I buy. I like the Saddle Brown leather case and the Dark olive silicone case.

    Which one is better the leather or silicone case?

    I am open to hear suggestions too.

    I've never owned a leather case because I don't wear or use leather, but they age really well if you like the patina look. The silicone cases I've had have all held up well as long as the color isn't too light. One thing about the Dark Olive though, I'd look at it in person if you haven't done so because it really looks more grey than green to my eyes.


    I currently have the Blue Cobalt and White silicone cases. I've yet to use the White, but the Blue Cobalt's color has held up fine.

    I have always prefered the Apple leather over silicone (have tried both) ,I found the silone to be a little harder to slide in pockets and really liked to smell and feel of leather .

    I've always liked the silicone because they stay looking the same vs leather that changes. with that said, we've had more issues with silicone peeling or breaking down than I remember with the leather. Might have to check the Apple Store and see if they'll exchange.

    I have one of each. Leather and silicone. It depends on my mood. Silicone has better grip in my opinion and I feel like I won't drop the phone even if I have sweaty palms. The leather case is good but feels as if the phone could fall out

    Love my saddle brown leather case. Don’t even mind it getting scratched. Makes it unique.

    How many time do you have with the case? It looks pretty good

    I've had the saddle brown case for my 6s for over two years. It ages nicely, but the corners get banged up. Also note that it does get slick over time.

    Leather is better but both are overpriced and not worth the $$ imo.

    My leather one has taken a beating. I go back and forth with it. I can definitely say that it is nowhere near the color it was when i bought it. I got the light brown and its almost black, hahaha

    I saw this over on theverge. Instructions on how to rush the patina of a leather case. Seems a little in depth to me, but thought some might be interested.
