    I currently have the electric blue leather phone case and I don't know what the patina will look like (If it's good or bad) Should I go refund my electric blue and get another color or does the electric blue look good over time too?

    Charcoal grey, midnight blue, black, and saddle brown are my favourites

    I'd say stick with what you have. Blue/black is one of my favorite combos. I have a weird aversion to seeing brown and black together as others have suggested though. Red/black is also a great combo. Ultimately it's up to you though.

    I did and returned it. It fit very loose on my phone. Exchanged it. Still fit very loose. So I returned it and never tried another.

    My vote goes to the saddle brown as well. I had it on since the day I purchase my X on November 4th and the patina on it now is truly awesome!

    No, that thing would be nasty after a while. If you want white, get the silicone.

    I had the Black Apple leather OEM on on my space grey and I also have the same case on my silver iPhone X.

    Is this even a question? ... the phone is grey/black the most universal color ever ... All the cases look good with it

    I don't think patina is a thing with Apple leather cases, its more like wear, grime, dirt imo. I have seen some a few days old with what people call patina and it doesnt happen that quick with leather.

    That is patina. It is indeed a thing with Apple leather cases.

    It’s definitely a thing. It all has to do with how a person uses or abuses their device. The saddle brown is definitely patina. The berry is part patina & part me dropping it, so the edges are worn pretty bad.

    I’ve owned probably a half dozen Apple leather cases and have seen a bunch out in the wild and on this forum. I’ve yet to see any that looked worn/grimy/dirty after two days. Mine have always worn quite well.

    The type of leather Apple uses will patina over time, not days.

    I'll agree with that. At the same time, I know others here will use a leather conditioner to help the leather age more quickly and evenly.
