After we tested all the best leather cases for iPhone SE 2020 2nd Gen listed above, we can simply have them divided into two styles, one of which is the folio wallet case, the other is the snugly fit wrap-around case. Which style is a better option depends on your specific needs. If you'd like a case to merely serve its basic purpose -- protection, the wrap-around case will be your option. And based on that, thin leather cases will be more popular. That said, sometimes, people really don't mind the minor difference in thickness, they will focus more on the protection and convenience. On the other hand, folio wallet cases also enjoy great hot sales, because wallet-case users love the part that a single thing serves two purposes (or even multiple purposes) while keeping its size as expected.
