Made in Turkey from visibly impressive-looking Italian leather, Sena's new lineup of iPhone 4 cases is largely comprised of sequels to prior-generation versions. Shown first in our photos is the basic playthrough case Sarach Leatherskin ($60), which has distinctive contrasting side stitching and an open face with no belt clip attachment. A step up in complexity is Walletslim ($45), which grafts two credit card-sized compartments to a frame that's otherwise quite like Leatherskin, minus the side stitches, and followed by Walletskin ($52), which adds four total card-sized compartments -- including one see-through ID holder -- to a playthrough design, half of them on a flap that closes to hide everything inside. Walletskin adds an optional plastic belt clip with a metal mounting nub and screw, parts that aren't included or optional for the prior two cases. The last two cases are shown together in our final photo; both use front flaps that we've mentioned in prior case coverage that we find inconvenient for iPhone protection. The vertical version is called Magnet Flipper ($52), which seals shut with a magnet, and the other is Walletbook ($52), shown in green, which has two card compartments and one cash compartment, folding closed like a book with a snap on the back. Magnet Flipper includes an optional belt clip and nub; Walletbook does not.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
