    Lasted Less Than A Year Before Plastic Started to Break and Terribly Discol

    • Written by from Marina Del Rey

    This product aged terribly. Wouldn't recommend (awful leather). Given how good other Apple products are I had expected more.

    Waste of $45.00

    • Written by from Okotoks

    I do not recomment purchasing this case. Within a few days the case starts to wear out in the corners and it looks terrible. Within a few weeks and months the case looks really bad, like it's been through the washing machine. I advise not to spend $45 on it as there are better cases out there. The case does fit nicely and feels nice as well but is poorly made.

    Looks horrible after minimal use

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This case fits the phone well and is beautiful out of the box. However after minimal usage the texture rubs off of the edges leaving a dark blue ring around the perimeter of the case. I had not realized how ugly mine had become until I looked at the pictures on the website. I'm really disappointed that Apple would sell something that was so poorly made. I don't mind high prices but in return I expect high quality.

    iPhone 5s Case - Blue

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I had high hopes for this case. I love the color (Tiffany & Co. blue) but it became dingy looking in about a week. And, no, don't think you can clean it back to looking new. I read the negative reviews on the beige colored case and apparently the lighter the color you go on this one, the worse it is.

    do not buy

    • Written by from Jarabacoa

    Spend $ 40, I feel regret having purchased this product which Apple should have been more careful. this case is peeled and dirty easily and with 1 month of use has a look as if she were 1 year of use.

    Not worth it

    • Written by from Greeley

    Bought this case a couple weeks ago and it is already incredibly scuffed and dirty around the edges, despite careful use. It looks incredibly dingy and old now... While I initially thought the material was nice, it is most definitely not worth $40.

    I never leave a review for any product but this was the worst $40 that I ever spend. It gets very dirty after a week of use and there is no way to clean it (tried everything). I should had read the reviews before. I DO NOT recommend it!

    You'd be better off with plastic wrap.

    • Written by from South Weber

    I bought this cover from an Apple Store because the display looked beautiful. The first couple of days it was exactly what I expected out of Apple, simple, clean and elegant. It even had a nice leather smell. Three weeks later and it looks like I've been wearing it as a shoe at a junkyard. The leather is black and dingy. (I bought the cream colored cover) I have used every product I can think of to safely clean it... to no avail. My hands are always clean, so I have no idea where all the grime is coming from. There's no getting rid of it though. I'll be replacing this case as soon as possible. Do not waste a dime on this. Anyone giving it high ratings either keeps their phone in a hermetically sealed bag, or hasn't owned it more than a few weeks.

    Worst product ever

    • Written by from Worcester

    I had it for 2 weeks and it looks like 2 years old. My iphone 5s looks like at least 2 years old because of this cover. If ur interested, ask me to send you a picture of the cover.

    Not worth the money - an Apple disappointment

    • Written by from Daytona Beach

    I bought this two months ago and was pleased at first. Within a month it started peeling and getting discolored. First time I had to take the case off, it cracked on the bottom. There is no way to complain to Apple about this piece of junk. It is inferior to every case I've ever bought and there have been many.

    Not really a descriptor I anticipated using when I bought the case, but here we are -- it's disgusting.

    The case soaks up every bit of dirt from hands, surfaces and -- seemingly the thin air.
    It's like carrying around a dirty sponge. What could make that worse? It's literally impossible to clean. It's determined to remain filthy.

    Maybe the darker colors fare better, but this was unusable after about a month. Disappointing. (And disgusting).

    Disappointing quality for an Apple product.

    • Written by from yorktown

    Despite being expensive I bought this case because I thought Apple made quality products. While it fits well, I couldn't be more disappointed in it. The color on the edges of the case (around the screen) started to change after less than a week. Then then edges of the back started to change color. Now it just looks awful. I expect more from you, Apple.

    Horrible product

    • Written by from Sacramento

    Seriously after about a week it looked like some kid's toy that never gets cleaned. I tried cleaning it but it still looks awful. My friend upgraded from a 4S to a 5S and needed a case and I couldn't give it away to him. This was after a week. Save yourself some grief and buy the black one, it's the only one that holds its color.

    Do Not Buy

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I purchased this color and case because I thought it would be of good quality. The case is not worth the money. I have had it for only 2 weeks and its already showing signs of wearing. Not pleased at all; pick another color or purchase a different design.

    Good..at FIRST.

    • Written by from Grafton

    So I bought this phone case to go with my new 5s, and the light blue is a nice color. I read on the back that leather will change color with use and I thought no big deal, but honestly for $40 + tax this case is definitely not worth it. The protection it offers is slim, (don't buy this if you want good protection). And after just ONE week of using it, the case turned an ugly dark blue color mixed with other colors. So needless to say it looked very disgusting.

    I feel that this product is not worth the money and I do not recommend others to buy it.

    Very Quick Discoloration

    • Written by from Bradford

    Bought the blue leather 5s case and thought it was great. Only one month later, the case looks like I've had it for over a year. To be fair, the label did say that the color may change due to the material the case is made with. I did not expect that color change to occur so quickly and drastically. All of the edging and corners look like they are smudged black and the button area is discolored as well. I'm a teacher, so I don't get my hands particularly dirty day to day. Also, there is a small rip in the fabric from the one time I took the phone out of the case.

    The case looks great initially, fits the phone well, and seems to offer some protection without adding bulk. It would be great if it had maintained its look for a while. After paying $40 and having it look terrible after only a month, I have to rate this product one star (zero was not an option).

    Worst case ever

    • Written by from Roslyn Heights

    I thought since this was an Apple case it would be the best quality, especially for the price. I bought the blue since it matched the silver 5S so nicely, but within 2 days it was SO dirty! It picks up everything and I have tried cleaning it, with no luck. Maybe a darker color would have been better. It also fits so tightly that you can't even take it off even if you wanted to. I wish I saved the box as I would have returned it.

    Good for about a day, not worth the money

    • Written by from Lafayette

    This case feels and fits the Iphone extremely well. It is very nice until you actually start to use it. It wears very easily and shows dirt after the first couple of days. The edges turn colors very quickly and it looks awful after a couple of weeks. I would not recommend anyone spend 40$ on a case that does not last even though it is a nice case it could have been made to be more durable.

    Not even one week old and it has already broken. The piece around the headphone jack broke when trying to remove the case to show someone the silver back. Probably for the best anyway as it started looking like I had it for a year after only two days.
