    Want to ask those who've the Apple leather cases. Is it normal that after some time of usage, the case will exhibit marks, patina, etc?
    Yes...It’s leather!

    Yes. That's just how leather wears. From what others have said it looks good on the browns, but less so on the more vibrant cases. The black will of course get marks, but the color won't change as much for obvious reasons. I like the look of worn brown leather. Not sure if I'd like a more vibrant case to wear.

    Edit: Has anyone that uses leather cases tried putting shoe leather protection on a case? Does it work?
    I️ know there are some people that have put leather protection on them & it seems to work to their expectations. I️, for one, love the patina♥️ It’s unnatural for leather to not patina!!

    Thanks for the heads up! It's my first Apple leather case though.

    I personally don't use leather at all, so I don't have a dog in this race. Just asking for others that might not want to see the wear, but I agree aged leather does look better in most cases than new leather.

    Granted I have't read every single page on this thread, but has anyone purchased the Apple Leather Folio yet? I was able to score one from Verizon for 60 bucks (they are horribly overpriced at 99), just wondering if anyone has a real person review on it yet.

    That’s the case that scratched the back of my X - be careful. There wasn’t anything caught in it when I put it on but something got in it and there’s a gouge in my glass and a mark on the case in the same spot.
    Oh, ok.. thanks for the heads up!

    I tried one out at Bestbuy but didn't like that the cover/lid wouldn't clamp shut. Seems for that price it would have. I think the only magnet is to put the phone to sleep when it closes not to keep it shut.

    Thanks for the feedback on it. I figured for 60 bucks I can give it a shot and probably make my money back on eBay if it doesn't work out. My main concern is if it doesn't clamp shut the lid might warp. Ive had a couple other folio cases that after a couple weeks of use the front cover ends up not being straight due to the "hinge" being broken in at an angle.

    No problem. I also had ordered the Ringke Air and Ringke Prism and I really like them. They’re clear, the air is smooth on the back but won’t stick to the phone, and because the back is soft it shouldn’t gouge like the fusion did if something gets in the case. I really like them.

    So before my review goes live. I would strongly recommend not buying an Otterbox Symmetry. Mine has scratched the back glass of my X. In the corner I use to push my phone into the case.

    Seems like it may be a thing with hard shell cases...

    Yikes!!! I had to take my case off yesterday to put a screen protector on. I need to check the back of mine before putting it back on!

    My Symmetry is clear and I took it off to use and review my Peel. I thought it was just dirty, but I cleaned it with iKlear and they were still there.

    Wow, thank you for letting me know. Now I’m paranoid with theses cases and new glass back phones 🤭

    I will not use any case.. I love to use my iPhone X naked only.
    With the cost of screen replacement and its failed drop test a case will save you a lot of money and loss of your device.
