For $129, is the Grovemade Maple & Leather iPhone case any good? Yes, it’s very good; but there are a couple things you should know about before moving forward. Oh and one more thing: this is probably one of the coolest, most stylish phone cases on the planet.
Guys what’s up it’s Chris from DailyTekk.
Now why do you buy an iPhone case made out of high-quality wood and leather? You buy it for the looks. And this case from Grovemade is definitely one of the most stylish (and expensive) iPhone cases you can buy.
This case is essentially a wooden bumper that has a leather wrapped around the front and back. It feels really nice to the touch, the wood is super smooth and the build quality is second to none.
The use of magnets in this case is awesome: they hold the front flap in place and they also keep the back of the case secured until you want to use it as a stand.
The stand feature is really slick. There are 3 different placements so you can pick the perfect viewing angle no matter where you are.
The leather on this product tends to bend and you’ll probably have to reshape it from time to time. It also scratches very easily. My phone’s been wearing this case for just over a day and it’s already pretty scraped up as you can see. But I guess that just adds some character — right?
Note: this isn’t a super heavy duty case. The website itself says the wood isn’t shatterproof.
But if you’re looking for a unique case that’s had as much care put into it’s design as the iPhone it’s protecting, I highly recommend this product.
