The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge may be 2015’s flagship, and a year is a long time when it comes to mobile tech. But, that doesn’t mean it’s obsolete in any way.
The S6 Edge began Samsung’s build material revolution, along with the Edge gimmick that we all know and love today. But, the glass and metal build may not be for everyone. That is why leather is still the most popular option.

SHIELDON is a very well-known competitor in the case arena and they have been making quality cases for some time now and this time is no exception.

There’s only one word you need to describe this case and that word is robust.
The Vakoo leather case is premium to the touch. The synthetic leather exterior is quite comfortable to feel. This, coupled with the polycarbonate hard case exterior does a great job protecting your device.
The case is also extremely lightweight and exactly matches the S6 Edge’s already slim form factor. It also has numerous slots to store your cards, and a much larger slot to hold your cash, which is convenient.
The case is designed so your S6 Edge will look like a small book which is visually aesthetic. It also has a kickstand with varying degrees of measurement which gives you the perfect viewing angle for convenient media consumption.

It is possible for the plastic on the interior, clasping your phone, to break if you give much pressure to lock the device in place. You also might not want to risk putting too many cards in there as the magnet might lose its ability to seal tight.

9. Verus Crayon Diary-$15.99

Leather is a very interesting choice of build material which is only adopted by some smartphone manufacturers, like LG, for example. However, leather cases are the way to go if you want to give your smartphone another novel look.
