Apple iPhone X Leather Folio Case: Review

by birtanpublished on November 1, 2020

What's up guys Mike here the Detroit Borg with a really quick look at the new iPhone 10 leather folio case now I'm taking a look at all the Apple accessories for the iPhone 10 including all the colors for the silicone and leather cases but first up I want to get to this new accessory which we've never seen from Apple before although a folio style case is definitely not new for the iPhone we've seen this for quite a while with other case manufacturers but this is the first one that sort of incorporates the same smart cover technology we've seen with Apple's iPads so that means when you open up the case

Or close it it wakes up or locks the phone this retails for $99 and is available in only four colors cosmos blue taupe black and berry so these are the new fall colors for late 2017 and I'm sure this will change over time now essentially this case looks like an apple leather case with a folio glued to the back of it in fact it basically has the same design on the inside that's covered in microfiber and material which cushions the phone and prevents grip from grinding against the phone we also have metallic buttons along the side which

Are color matched to the leather and they replicate the quality of the buttons on the actual phone we also have a cutout for the mute switch and the camera module and of course we have this big opening toward the bottom which allows you to dock those with apple's lightning dock and of course it lets these speakers and microphones to work normally the other thing that stands out here is that we have a two-tone color we have a darker blue on the outside a lighter blue on the inside now this isn't just a folio case this is also a wallet case so we have two pockets in

The front cover one for credit cards which fit about three cards and another pocket for paper currency now there are some very specific instructions in the packaging so credit card should only go in the top pocket or front pocket or whatever you want to call it basically the pocket with these two stitches at the top and bottom that keeps the credit card away from the magnets the back pocket is pretty small so unless you have very small currency you'll have to fold up those Benjamin's to make it fit so the phone does snap in pretty snugly so you don't have to worry about this

Falling out anytime soon and again the case is fairly rigid around it but it is a pretty bulky case so there's a lot of material around your phone so you don't have to worry about damaging your phone if you drop it so again the magnets in the cover trigger the lock or unlock feature but they don't keep the cover close to the phone unlike the smart cover on the iPad but generally speaking it does lay pretty flat my only concern about this case is that the hinge is kind of loose and the cover does move around over top of the glass which does wake it up so if

That cover is sort of sliding around in your pocket it might constantly wake up the screen which may drain your battery life now what's interesting about the iPhone 10 is that there's actually two Hall sensors which detect the magnets so there's one in the back of the phone toward the center and another one toward the lower right corner so in order for the sleep/wake function to work you actually need magnets in those specific locations so there's a magnet in the back of the case where the Apple logo might be and another magnet in the front of the case were the lower right corner

Of the phone is if you want you can turn off the auto unlock feature I have to do is go to settings display in brightness and you'll see a toggle for lock and unlock just like the other Apple accessories in most cases or skins wireless charging does work with this case now it doesn't really work if you fold the flap behind itself overtop of the charger that just creates too much distance between the phone but if you really force it flat it will work but if you have any cards in the flap it really doesn't work at all so in the end this is a very nicely made case it does a

Good job protecting the phone but personally I don't really have an interest in this type of case it's too bulky it doesn't hold enough stuff to replace my wallet and personally I don't really like the barrier between me and the screen I have to constantly flip open but if you don't like this type of case stay tuned to my next videos and I'll be covering the silicone and leather cases hope you guys stay tuned for that video you guys enjoyed this one let me know with a like and I'll see you again in the next video
