This is not at all made of genuine leather - it is clearly made of PU. That said, it is far higher quality than most of the wallets in this price range, and has a few thoughtful features I really appreciate. The zippered pockets on the sides are just big enough to fit a full-sized phone (though probably not an XL - I have the Moto X4, and it is a tight fit with my case on). Fully loaded on both sides with credit cards, cash, and phone - it will *just* barely snap - but it does, and holds securely. The wrist strap is a great touch, and I found it came in incredibly handy on my last trip through the airport, in which I needed to have my hands free for luggage while keeping my passport, tickets, and phone handy. I deducted one star as I'm annoyed about the material (I wanted real leather, for wear) - but this has already become a daily use item for me, so I've rated it highly.
