Poll results: Which leather version of the LG G4 would you get?

The rear back cover of the LG G4 has seen a substantial makeover, as LG exchanged the smooth matte plastic of its predecessor for either a diamond-shaped plastic pattern with optional ceramic finish, or a novel genuine leather, complete with actual stitching in the middle.
Thus, LG opposes the glass & metal design trend of late by opting for an "analogue feel," which gives the smartphone a deliberate retro-chic character - genuine leather and all. LG's design decisions certainly won't fit every taste, and the LG G4 is the only Spring 2015 flagship phone whose exterior is mostly made of plastic, yet the result is still aesthetically pleasing, especially in the leather-clad version.
Unfortunately, not all color options will be available on all carriers and in all regions at once, with the black, brown and red seemingly taking precedence, that is why we asked you last week which of the innovative leather options you like the most, and which one would you get if you had the chance. Well, it turns out that the brown leather version, which, coincidentally, was the unit we just reviewed, received the most votes, followed by the black and red ones, while 14% of our 1842 respondents say they would go for the plastic variations, instead of the leather ones.
Which leather version of the LG G4 would you get?
I'd go for the plastic rear cover
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, Hexa-core, 1800 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(18.5h talk time)
Leather is very bad with stains(ink/oil/anything), extremely bad with thermals and doesn't age well. It looks good on your shoes and belts. Keep it there. I'd go for the ceramic variant, although I know that even ceramic isn't good with thermals either. But it's cool to touch and matte always looks great and classy.

Samsung charges you extra $100 to get the latest screen technology and these sexy edges in the S6 Edge, while LG charges you an extra 100 bucks to get a leather back? Lol I used to get those leather backs for $15 max off ebay. You can buy a nice CK leather wallet for $25!!
