Last month, we’ve held a giveaway for Truffol leather skins iPhone / Samsung Galaxy S4 and 15 lucky winners received their choice of model and color! The nice guys at Truffol were also kind enough to send me a couple of skins to try out for this review.
What Is the Truffol Autograph Leather Skin?
It’s a genuine leather skin with an adhesive back that you can easily apply on the back of your phone. It’s simple yet very beautiful, it instantly classes up your phone. The skin is precisely cut to fit your phone perfectly, and it’s only 0.6mm in thickness, so it doesn’t add any weight or thickness to your phone.
What you get in the packages is:
- The leather skin.
- a complimentary screen protector, microfiber cloth and dust removal tool.
How To Apply the Skin:
It’s a pretty straight forward task. Simply peel the plastic off the adhesive back and gently apply the skin on your phone. The adhesive is good for a number of uses, not quite sure how many, but I did take it off and on again at least 5 to 6 times and it’s still holding on very well. I would advice that you keep the protective plastic in case you ever want to take the skin off and use it again at a later time. I was pleased to find out that my iPhone 5S fit nicely into the case I had even with the skin on (I use a Spigen Slim Armor Case) so you might not even need to take the skin off.
Quality and Feel of the Autograph Leather Skin:
The quality is certainly of high standard. The nice smell of leather will hit you as soon as you open that package. It also has a grained texture to it that feels nice in hand. The bottom of the skin holds the logo of Truffol either in stainless steel or rose gold, depending on the color of the leather.
Truffol offers a free personalization service for the Autograph leather skin. You can have up to three letters embossed on it to make it more your own.
It’s important to note that the Truffol Autograph leather skin is not meant to be protective. Of course, it will protect the back of your phone from scratches, but this isn’t something you buy for overall protection against drops for example. That said, your phone will definitely look much better than having a case on it. I’ve already gotten so many positive comments on mine.
As I already have a screen protector on my phone, I did not apply the complimentary protector I received with the skin, so I won’t be commenting on that.
The Autograph Leather Skin is available in four colors, and in two variants: Standard or Card, which has a pocket good for holding a credit card or a driver’s license. You can get it for your iPhone 5/5S or Samsung Galaxy S4 for only $18 or $22 for the Card version.
