I have this as well as the leather version of the case. Personally, I prefer the slightly grippier feel of the leather - which, frankly, I'm not convinced is actually leather, but, hey, they say it is. Anyway the leather case is slightly grippier and moderately softer in the back, but this case feels very similar in the hand, and the back has the same sort of excellent feel as the back of the 64GB OnePlus One. This case is a bit cheaper than the leather one, and I don't think you'll feel disappointed if you get it instead.That said, the deals as they are now put the leather case at only a few dollars more (at the moment). If that's still the case, I'd go for the leather version, but it's not a strong recommendation over this.Both cases protect the back and sides of the phone. The top and bottom are pretty much exposed, and the front is as well. Very light ridges mean the glass won't touch a smooth tabletop if placed face down, but otherwise there's minimal protection at best. I recommend a screen saver for most. Personally, I use�this one.
