With the Book Book for iPhone 6/6s, Twelve South continues their respected collection of leather book cases for the iPhone. This version of the Book Book has some new enhancements that make this the best cell phone case I've ever owned.
For several versions of the iPhone, the Book Book has provided solid protection for the device while adding the convenience of a wallet - all in a hand-rubbed leather "book" that looks like an antique devotional book when it's sitting on a desk.
Some have questioned the look of the the Book Book. Since each one us hand rubbed (making each one unique in all the world), there's not a consistent look from device to device.
With this version of the Book Book, Twelve South has added a feature not available on previous models.
To be honest, the first time I put the phone in this configurement was to take the photo for this review. For me, working with those plastic tabs is just too frustrating.
Another issue Book Book owners need to remember is that when talking on the phone, your credit card and IDs are on the outside of the device when you fold the cover back to talk. Since my hand is covering these cards and IDs, it's not a big issue for me, and when I'm using the speaker phone, I keep my Book Book closed.
These issues aside, I'll repeat it again: I love this iPhone case. It's well-constructed, unique, and practical. The antique 'book' nature of it just adds to my proud geek identity. The folks at Twelve South have terrific customer support, and each Book Book comes with a one-year warranty. This things isn't cheap ($60), but if you have the money, it's well worth it.
