Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5/5s

  • Overview

    The Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 5 is a handsome hybrid case that provides one place for your iPhone and the contents of your wallet. This pocket-size book also protects your iPhone in two ways: the hard-back book cover shields against bumps and bruises, while the visual design disguises your wallet and phone.

    Protection and access

    Slip your driving licence, bank cards and a little cash into the right side of BookBook, then snap your iPhone 5 into the leather wrapped frame on the opposite side and you're ready to go.

    Superb convenience

    A built-in ID window lets you show your drivers license without taking it out, plus an easy thumb-slide for those occasions when you do have to remove your ID. Vertical slots and one horizontal pocket hold debit/credit cards, cash and receipts.

      Good product: well thought out

      First day of having this wallet/case, I had a few gripes: -The wallet would not close all the way unless I put the phone face up and the weight closes it. It r First day of having this wallet/case, I had a few gripes: -The wallet would not close all the way unless I put the phone face up and the weight closes it. It really bothered me. -Very uncomfortable talking on the phone. Wasn't sure how anyone could hold the phone. -No place for cash. It's too big and won't let it close on me. Having the case for a month, I can say I like it! -The wallet fully closes now whichever side I put it on. -I learned that I needed to fold back the case with the credit cards and such sticking out. The case gave grip to the phone and now I feel uncomfortable without it. -Still no place for cash, but I feel like it grew on me. I carry 3 credit cards, my license, and a couple receipts and it's more than enough. Overall, I would recommend the case, but it does take getting a little use to. I'm the type of person that always forgets either his wallet or phone, and having two in one makes forgetting both much harder. It is a little thicker in my pocket, but I've gotten use to it, and I don't need to worry about having my keys in the same pocket as my phone anymore! A++ would recommend!

      Twelve South does it again

      I love this latest BookBook. The snap in case is an improvement over the old slide in type of the 4s version. I also like the camera hole and the fact i can hol I love this latest BookBook. The snap in case is an improvement over the old slide in type of the 4s version. I also like the camera hole and the fact i can hold more cards is a plus. You can't go wrong if you get this. It eliminates the need for a phone case and a wallet. I have one on my MacBook air and my New iPad, awesome!!!!!! I get a lot of complements when people notice it.

      It's now 'the norm'

      Firstly if you have an Iphone 5 you must have a case of some description. Why this case? Well some people won't ever want to combine their wallet and phone s Firstly if you have an Iphone 5 you must have a case of some description. Why this case? Well some people won't ever want to combine their wallet and phone so this is not the case for you. But if you are looking for less clutter in your life this this is the one for you. You don't need to carry round 19 debit, credit and store cards all at once (and if you do then you shouldn't be spending your money on iphones and £50 cases) This case is for the professional who wants to reduce clutter and look smart whilst also achieving the practical benefit of protecting their phone. Previously every time I left my house/office/other location I had to do the man dance....wallet, phone, keys. And I would physically have to locate them on my body. Now I only have to find 2 of those things - so by my maths this case has improved my life by 33% !!

Was I Bought the BookBook about a year ago, cost me over $100.00 as I live in Canada. I was a little shocked at the cost but thought it'd be a quality product. Was I mistaken, Canadian money doesn't fit in it, so you have to fold it which makes impractical to carry money in. The spine discoloured and looks terrible. The credit card slots on the interior have all stretched so you can't put cards in them as will just slip out. Lost my drivers licence and health card today. So today is the garbage day for my BookBook just where it belongs. Worst $100 I've spent.

      Useful case, looks good but weak around the rear facing camera

      I've had this case for probably 18 months now (or rather, I've had _these_ cases). Thankfully there's a 12 month warranty on the case because if, like me, you I've had this case for probably 18 months now (or rather, I've had _these_ cases). Thankfully there's a 12 month warranty on the case because if, like me, you need to take the phone out of the case to fit it on a charging dock, or put it in a different case (for fitting on a bicycle for example) you'll find the corner of the case near the rear camera is weak. The plastic frame the holds the phone and the leather case become detached. I got mine replaced under warranty but the replacement has already started to go after 6 months or so. I notice that the versions of the case for the 6/6 Plus have a different design around the rear facing camera, so Twelve South are presumably aware of the issue.

      Book Book for 6+

      I have been using Book Books for years, and have always loved them. I just moved up to iphone6+, and I like the Book Book again, but there is one feature I abs I have been using Book Books for years, and have always loved them. I just moved up to iphone6+, and I like the Book Book again, but there is one feature I absolutely loathe about the 6+ case. I can not stand the removable part of the case. My phone is always sliding out of the little grommets that should hold it securely in. I am seriously thinking about removing my phone and attempting to glue the removable case onto the little pegs that should be holding it on. Has anyone else found this sliding feature to be a nuisance? All in all, its a nice case, and I still would recommend it.
