I have never had a case for my iPhone, until now.
iPhone 6 Wallet Case
When this case arrived I knew straight away that the company, Casemade, cared about their product. On opening the package I pulled out the case, it was neatly wrapped in tissue paper and secured with a logo sticker. Included with the case was a screen wipe which was folded and placed in a small sealed plastic bag.
After pulling the tissue paper off the case I inspected it. Straight away I could smell the geniune Italian cowhide leather, it filled my nostrils and I knew this case was good quality. The front of the black case is embossed with the Casemade logo, but it's understated and doesn't stand out. Just what I like. The red stitching is not a bright red but a deep red that compliments the black leather.
On the back of the case there's a space where your camera is, so there's no messing about removing your phone from the case so you can take photos. The case is secured with a magnetic closure and the magnet is strong enough to not pop open when you're not using your phone.
Inside you'll find three slots for cards, you could keep credit cards, store cards or bus passes in there - it's a useful feature. The inside is also embossed, this time with a smaller logo with 'CASEMADE' next to it. Again it is understated and doesn't jump out at me. There is a slot behind the card slots where you could keep cash or receipts or even the handy screen cloth they send with the case.
The case where your phone sits is secure, you simply 'snap' your phone into place, there's no chance it is going to drop out. With your phone in place you can easily tap on the screen and write out messages, using the case as a great holder without worrying about dropping your phone.
A few years ago I dropped my phone on the ground and the screen shattered. I was devastated. If I'd had this case back then it may have saved my screen!
Casemade is run by Alex and Toby, and they're based in Leeds. Before setting up Casemade they searched for a case they liked but couldn't find any. The cases available were either super expensive or made with poor quality synthetic leather. They decided to make their own cases and that's how Casemade was born.
Using genuine Italian cowhide leather they make cases for iPhones (5 - 6S Plus), iPads (Mini 1 - Pro 12.9), Samsung phones (Galaxy S5 - S7 Edge), the Sony Xperia Z3 Plus, and the HTC One M9. The selection of cases is gorgeous, they're all tasteful and stylish without being 'in your face', and the price is brilliant.
What I love about Casemade is the quality and style. I'm a fairly reserved person and don't like to have a case or a phone that is too 'out there', I much prefer understated style and class. Casemade screams class and the fact that you can smell the leather is perfect.
I was sent an iPhone 6 wallet case to review. All opinions are my own.
