    I've never used a leather case but for some reason I feel like my 7 should be in one lol. How does a leather case usually hold up?

    Leather can discolour as it absorbs oils from the skin, but if well cared for will last much longer than a plastic or fake leather case.

    You can wipe off anything on the surface of a leather case, but the oils that soak into the leather will always be there. Do not buy a leather case expecting the colour and finish to remain pristine in normal use.

    I'm not. Just want one that'll age nicely.

    A good quality leather case, well taken care of, should age well.

    Update on the leather case, this one arrived and must say I am very pleased with it. I have had a leather case before a much softer flip one, I used for 4 years. It did wear eventually. This one is a much harder leather and looks really tough. There is no give in it all so I don't think this one will absorb. The colour is very rich almost burgundy. Smells wonderful and feels lovely in the hand. I think I will just wipe it down with a damp cloth. It has also got protection for the face keeps it off the table when face down. Like you I just thought iphone 7 deserved leather....

    I usually go with Spigen, good quality, nice look and fit. I usually experiment a bit with different cases but end up using some type of slim case from them.
