The idea of a leather-clad phone is no longer crazy, and the optional back for the LG G4 is a beauty.
This is the LG G4. In leather. And while LG can’t claim to be the first phone in recent memory to sport cowhide on its hide — the 2014 Moto X also did so, and did it well (and in several color options) — LG is doing things different here, with a swappable leather back for its latest and greatest Android smartphone.
And this is another one of those annoying instances in technology in which pictures really don’t do it justice. We’re still overcoming the shock of the skeuomorphic era, in which we made things to look like other things. But this, folks, is the real deal.
