Apple iPhone 6s & 6s Plus Leather Case: Review (All Colors)

by birtanpublished on February 8, 2021

What's up guys Mike here the Detroit Borg and as promised I'm back with a quick video on the leather cases for the iPhone 6s and 6s plus now these are very similar to the cases from the 6 and 6-plus from last year but they have been updated with some new colors and new materials pricing is the same year $45 for the 6s $49 for the 6s plus but these are backwards compatible with the 6 and 6-plus take a look at the packaging in the description on the back you'll see that this is European leather last year it was just natural leather so they're using different leathers this time possibly to improve durability so first

Up let's go and pull the tab and slide out our cases so of course we have midnight blue saddle brown rose gray brown and black so just 5 colors so popping off the case on the inside of the packaging you'll see quick instructions on how to install the case of course it's very simple of course you can see that nice microfiber material on the inside which is color matched to the exterior of the casing so all of them have an Apple logo embossed into the leather which is a little darker on some of the lighter cases on the inside we'll find this nice microfiber material color

Matched to the leather if you look closely toward the camera cutout each one has a unique identifier and some sort of serial number or model number which is unique to each color down below that will find our iPhone branding emboss along with a natural leather stamp you can also see that the leather wraps around the inside edge which also wraps around the buttons so the buttons are nice and protected just like the previous generation but of course they do operate a little stiffly at first until the leather breaks in so before we put our phone in the case

Let's just line them up side-by-side and take a look at the new colors so along the left side we'll find our raised Vaughn controls along with a cutout for the mute switch along the right side you'll find the same covered button for our sleep/wake power button and down below we have a wide opening for all the ports and speakers toward the bottom so to install the phone that's very simple just slide in the top first and snap it in toward the bottom now this is a tight fit especially for the 6s plus which is a bit thicker so you have to give the case a little time to sort of work in

Toward the edges at the bottom so with the case installed you can see the leather wraps around the edge of the foam which provides nice shock protection for the curved glass display there's also a nice raised edge here so when you lay the phone flat on a table it won't make contact with the glass along the back we'll find the camera cutout which perfectly fitted to the camera module along with the LED flash and microphone you can see once again it's lined with a plastic ring to mitigate glare from the LED flash so long the right side will

Find our raised vine controls now the controls are a little stiff to operate through this case at first but once it breaks in they are fairly responsive we also get an opening for the mute switch which is easy to operate through this case it's actually a bit better than the silicone cases which is a little cramped in this area and of course we have our sleep/wake power button same story here it takes a little time to wear in before it's really responsive I'll turn the bottom we have this expansive opening for everything from the speaker to the Lightning port to the headphone jack to

The microphone so nothing is obstructed here now you can see the case does wrap around the corners and provides enough protection along those corners so if you drop the phone you're not likely to make impact on the bezel of this area of the phone you can also see there's also protection along the back so after a year of using a leather case on my iPhone six-plus I've never suffered any damage along this edge of the phone after dropping it numerous time so I'm pretty confident in the protection value of this case so in terms of our color selection we have Sadler brown which I

Think looks especially good with the gold color we also get Brown which is sort of a tan or beige color again a fairly neutral color that would work with just about anything we also have Rose gray honestly geared toward the rose gold foam but I think it also works great with gold or silver and then we have my favorite case color which is midnight blue which is what I'll be using with my Space Gray iPhone 6s plus this year and then we have classic black which you can't go wrong with this should work with just about any phone now in terms of these leathers that are

A little less perfect than the previous generation which makes them look a little more natural a little more authentic so if you compare especially the black one you'll see there's more creases more imperfections and if you look at some of the lighter colors you can actually see some discoloration in the leather now if you object to leather or just want something a little cheaper or want something with more color options Apple does sell the silicone cases and there are 11 colors and I took a look at all of them in a previous video which I'll leave linked in the

Description below now one of those colors is product red which is no longer available as the leather case but overall the leather feels really nice to handle I certainly prefer this over the silicone cases leather is a really nice material to handle day to day now in terms of long term durability I can actually talk about that because I've been using a leather case for a year I've been using the product red leather case for the iphone six-plus and it's held up pretty well of course it does weather over time it did

Not weather as much as I expected so you'll see some discoloration along the edges and I've dropped it numerous times so you'll see some impact scars from the casing so I've been pretty impressed overall by its durability I do expect some wear with leather so that's to be expected but a lot of people may not like them so if you want to avoid that obvious discoloration get one of the darker cases like midnight blue or black alright guys so let's can do for me in this video if you liked it please give it a thumbs up to let me know thanks for watching and I'll see you again in the
