The best Folio Case for photographers!
February 2, 2018
Like it! Beautiful, elegant and practical. You can easily take photos with just one hand, just press and hold the folio top with you fingers and "voilà" photos and videos single handed! This is a big advantage from other folio cases with hard, rigid tops, which force you to use both hands when taking photos. This is the MAIN reason why I bought this case.
The case protects 3 sides; top, left and right side, in addition to both bottom corners of the iPhone. The folio top protects the display of the phone from hits to the screen when closed, also you can put a card or two and a few $20's on the provided slots. In addition, the folio turn on or off the iPhone when opening or closing it, this is very cool and works like magic. Furthermore, the case is very slim and does not add bulkines to the phone, like many other folio cases do and it's very light too, you won't feel much difference between the iPhone with or without this case.
It is a delicate case, so you have to take care of it. Mine has some small scratches already (as you can see in the photos), but that's part of choosing a leather case, it tells yours story! With time the case will age they way you use it giving it a unique and personal look. I recommend to use a leather protector/moisturizer in order to extend the lifetime of the leather and protect it from sweat, water, food and other things that could stain it. I use the Mohawk Leather Protector M850-10064.
I would have loved to give this case 5 stars, but there are some shortcomings. There is a large opening at the bottom of the case, this expose almost the whole bottom of the iPhone which could lead to scratches, dents and even a serious hit to this area, that could crack the screen, this could be a deal breaker for some people. In addition the case does not have a magnetic closing, so the case open easily while handling it or when is not intended. Finally, the cost of this case is really high. There lots of other leather folio cases here on Amazon at a fraction of the Apple Leather Folio price.
