I got both, the skin and the leather case, both are great. The skin feels that it is always protecting most parts of the phone (in case of fall) and leather case only (but fully) when it is inside. The minus for the skin is that the face of the phone is always exposed, the screen and keyboard are exposed to any object (coin, key, pen, etc.) that can cause a scratch inside a pocket, purse or bag, this will not happen with the leather case. The skin may be fine for users that are always using the phone, the leather case for more casual users that like to gently pull off the telephone from the case not often during the day to be annoyed at the phone.
