    Had to take advantage of those sales on top of the 25% off 3 or more. Really wanted a leather case on the promotion but the saddle brown wasn’t there. Debating on returning the plasma, but in store it looked awesome.

    I have several iPhone X cases (so far!) and here are my thoughts. Please note that I prefer a minimalist approach--thin and clear when possible. I place a premium on cases that retain as much as possible the "magic" feel and performance of the X that you get when naked (the iPhone, I mean!). For those of you with an X, you know what I mean!

    For iPhone case obsessive-compulsives like me, here you go:

    1. The Speck Presidio Clear case it the most protective case I've tried for the X. Very protective, nice and clear--looks nice, but too bulky and loses too much of the magic for my tastes. But if you want good protection, get this one (or the Spigen below) instead of cases like Otterbox because this one looks better.

    2. The Spigen Ultra Hybrid (clear) is just a notch below the Presidio in terms of protection, but also looks great. The buttons are more responsive than the Presidio.

    3. Tozo's clear case listed on Amazon as: "TOZO for iPhone X Case, Crystal Clear Soft TPU Gel Skin Slim Fit Transparent Flexible Premium Cover"--the case package states "Ultra Thin Perfect"--go figure. This is the sweet spot case for me. Thinner that the two above, covers the whole edge of the X, easy to put on/take off, and looks great with no branding. Magic score is very good.

    4. PITAKA Magcase Aramid Fiber (https://www.ipitaka.com/collections/...e-for-iphone-x). This one feels great. Very thin but the material is supposed to be very protective. I would say, yes, protective for scratches but how far can you drop it without damage? Don't know, don't want to find out. The major flaw (and advantage?) with this one is it doesn't cover all of the X's edge. As you can see in their photos, there are large cut-outs for the buttons--which makes it have the best magic feel for button use. Nice. But there as cut-outs at the top and bottom of the iPhone and that leaves large areas exposed to drops. Go figure. I'm using this one right now, but I'm being extra carful!

    5. Peel Super Thin iPhone X case--Black version. Yup, this is about as thin as it gets. Be aware that it's very hard to put on/take off. Although it's not clear, the Black color/version lets the Apple branding show through nicely. Slippery compared to the PITAKA which has a more secure feel. All that said, it covers the whole device and the buttons retain a lot of the magic. The screen performance is all magic, just like the PITAKA, given that they're both so thin. Not likely as protective as the PITAKA due to the PITAKA's fancy "Aramid" material but, then again, it covers more of the edge.

    So, FWIW, right now I'm trying to decide between the added protection of the Tozo or the added magic of the PITAKA and Peel. Then, which do I feel more comfortable using--the PITAKA or Peel? Only time will tell...

    Man...you get a phone like the X and then you put a massive, gaudy case on it...why even bother with the X at that point.

    Apple genuine leather or silicone case, or for extra protection a basic Spigen Liquid Air Armor case. Anything else completely kills the look of the phone. But to each their own

    Well some people do not want to spend $500+ if it gets dropped and something breaks. That being said all cases kill the look of the phone, so if you really cared about the look you would go naked.

    That’s why I always go for the Apple cases.
    It’s simple and classy.

    I’ve been using the Apple leather cases since the iPhone 6. I’ve had black, brown, and storm grey over the years. (and a Dark Aubergine on the silver 8 plus that now belongs to my son) I chose black for my iPhone X and I’m happy with my choice.

    1) AppleCare
    2) my phone is naked, now that I used an aubergine leather case to acclimate down to the X size from three years of pluses.

    My current saddle brown leather case on my X is my very first Apple leather case, and it's absolutely awesome!

    I suppose I'll use Apple leather cases from now onwards on all my future iPhones.

    That’s how I was. Always used different cases and changed them. Got the Apple one and haven’t bought anything else since.

    Yeah prior to this I've always used cases from Griffin, Spigen and SwitchEasy Glass on my 7 Plus. Now it's Apple cases all the way!

    Ordered a saddle brown iPhone X case using the bestbuy accessories deal, not bad for 31$. Settled for an Otterbox commuter until it arrives since they weren’t available in store and I needed some protection on it until then. Apple leather cases are hands down my favorite cases, but do to my job, I need something a bit more protecting but not too bulky, hence the commuter.

    Yup, I noticed too, that you have to do an indirect search for characters / vehicles / proper names from Star Wars - and I agree with your comment about it most likely being due to copyright reasons...
    If you’re looking for Princess Leia cases on their site, I’ve come across this one:
    https://forums.imore.com/e?link=http...token=Oir7RRNB
    I’ve also found a Tie Fighter (‘Space Fighter’), and yet another R2 (‘Space Wars Droid Robot’).
    I'm a bit obsessed with anything R2 and Ewok. Thanks for those search terms.

    Yes. They just don’t advertise them. You also can’t find them on their website. I’ve only seen them on amazon and in stores like Walmart.

    I broke down and got 2 Apple Leather cases from Best Buy since they were on sale (Charcoal Gray and Saddle Brown). I was contemplating Cosmo Blue but wasn’t sure what it would look like in person. The Black Friday discount stacked with their 25% off 3 or more accessories so I got them for a steal!

    You’re welcome
    ...although after seeing the latest promo (TV) spot for The Last Jedi, you might want to add ‘Porg’ to that list. What Chewie does to one @ the end of the latest spot still cracks me up every time
    Btw, I’ve also come across a few Vaders, Death Stars, as well as a C-3PO on their (Casetify’s) site as well - but you have to use some what generic terms to find them, sort of like an Easter Egg hunt on there for Star Wars related designs...

    Yes you can still get AppleCare, but 1. Not everyone lives near an apple store, 2. you are still paying a good chunk of money (initial cost + cost of repair). So a $30-$50 case that may be "ugly" is still much cheaper than what you mentioned. Same reason you see people with those huge otterbox cases running around.

    I'm not sold on the Porgs yet, but we'll see. I've been steering clear of TLJ trailers because I want to go in blind.

    Off topic: I totally get that, but I’m the opposite - I can’t get enough of rumors & trailers...
    Not sure what you’re feelings on TFA are, but for me from what I’ve seen of the various trailers so far for TLJ - I think that Rian Johnson has hit one out of the park. And I heard that he had been offered to direct Episode IX once the initial director had left/was fired by Disney... but Rian declined to do so, so now JJ Abrams returns to direct IX...

    I’m over an hour drive from an Apple store. Still worth it.

    So I've had the black and gray apple leather on my plus's. I would rather have leather with a bit more texture and more grip. I assume all colors have the same grip? Any other leather case with texture?
