Review: Leather iPhone X Cases in Wallet & Other Styles

When you have an expensive piece of technology like the iPhone X you want to protect it but also show it off like a piece of art, and put it to use. The best way to do that is with an equally impressive case that serves as a frame for your high-tech artwork, and protects it at the same time. I had the opportunity to try several Leather Wallet Cases ($39–69) from Burkley.

These are quality cases with soft but durable burnished leather that rivals fine handbags. Some of the cases are wallet style with slots for credit cards. There is even a folio model that uses magnets to attach a slim iPhone case to the folio.


All of the cases are available in several color and texture options. Keep in mind that you should keep magnets away from credit cards.
