Noreve Apple iPhone 6 Leather Case Review
      #47823 - 03/12/15 07:10 PM

Noreve, a French leather case maker, offers several styles of iPhone 6 cases. The Tradition B - 2107TB model is a phone case and a handy wallet in one. The case is made with handpicked, high quality leather and it's built to last. The Noreve covers the entire iPhone 6 and offers thick and sturdy protection; and that also means it creates more bulk to the slim phone compared to many other cases. The wallet features also add to the thickness. As with most Noreve cases, the iPhone 6 leather case comes in 14 finishes and dozens of colors.


As Noreve names all of their iPhone 6 cases "leather case", when you look for the case reviewed here be sure to use its internal designation, Tradition B. The Noreve Tradition B leather case is about commitments: the case's commitment to protect your phone with reinforced shell, padded walls and secure snap closure; and your commitment to use a case that adds considerable amount of bulk. The shell that holds the iPhone 6 is thick and impenetrable. It can certainly protect your phone from keys and other sharp objects in your bag or purse, and it provides strong protection against bumps, shock and drops. The shell is very easy to use; and you should have no trouble installing the case and taking it off quickly. The front cover is also very stiff, providing additional structural support for your phone, and it's also padded to absorb shock from anything bumping into the phone's display.

Both the front and back are actually padded and the soft padding feels nice in hand. A long and padded leather piece connects the cover and the shell. The case has smooth leather interior and the exterior is available in many textures and colors. If you haven't seen one of the Noreve cases before, their cases come in 14 different finishes, ranging from soft and smooth nappa leather to highly textured to shiny surface. Each finish also offers different color options, some include a dozen colors and other fewer, and most recently they added Patine which is inspired by leather shoe dyes and finishes. The case pictured here is the Chataigne (chestnut) from the Ambition series.


The Noreve Apple iPhone 6 Leather Case is designed to give you access to all functions on the phone. The shell that holds the iPhone 6 has long cutouts that leave all the ports and button exposed for easy access. The rear camera cutout is also generous. The case isn't just functional but offers another feature for comfort: a built-in stand. The stand attaches to the back of the shell via a snap and when you open it, the stand can prop up your phone in landscape viewing mode for movie watching, video chatting and more. A ribbon connects the stand to the back of the case, preventing the stand from slipping too far, however the ribbon is a bit too short, which means the stand has a tendency to close back up.

Inside the front cover, you'll find two card slots to store credit cards, or ID cards or some emergency cash. Unlike a few other wallet cases we've reviewed, the Noreve doesn't have a side pocket for cash. The front cover also has a mesh cutout for the earpiece so that you don't have to open the front cover to have a phone conversation. A wide closure tab shuts the cover with a strong and magnetic snap.


We've always been fond of Noreve's cases for the high quality material, the handcrafted build, and the huge variety of finishes and colors. The Noreve Apple iPhone 6 Leather Case continues with this tradition. The case is very protective of the phone not only from scratches and bumps but also drop shock and damages. The case doesn't get in the way of you using the phone as it offers access to all ports and buttons, and it adds a couple of storage slots for ID and emergency cards and cash. The case offers a built-in stand, though it's a bit wobbly thanks to the short ribbon leash. If you're looking for a leather case with a unique finish and color, the Noreve Apple iPhone 6 Leather Case might just have the look you're looking for.
