    Not the best, but not bad at all.

    • Written by from Bronx

    I had this case for about a week and half and I can't say I hated it. The color was really nice and it was slim and lightweight. I could definitely feel that it was made exclusively for my phone and that was nice.

    However, it did changed color easily, right after a week, instead of the bright vibrant blue it originally was, it because sort of frumpy looking. I expected it, and it didn't bother me, but considering only a week had passed and I hadn't done anything that should have changed the color like that, it was weird.

    Another thing I didn't like was how hard it was to take off. It was a real hassle, and every time I was worried I would damage it somehow.

    Lastly, it got dents really easily, and they never went away. Like I said, it's not like I was handling it roughly or anything, I guess it was just a sensitive case. It's questionable about how much protection it offers the phone. If you're clumsy, you might not want to take any chances and you should invest in something different. Apple offers other great cases.

    Overall, I ended up exchanging it for a Kate Spade case they sell which I felt was a better option for me. However, I did like this case, I just felt I wasn't getting enough bang for my buck. You should probably go to the store and check it out before buying it. I'm sure they wouldn't mind opening it up and showing you. There's a great range of colors too, so they're not bad at all.

    Not happy with Blue Case

    • Written by from Apison

    I've had this case for less than a month and it is already showing signs of wear. It's worn down on all corners and looks like the leather is wearing off. I've done nothing for all this to be happening to my case. It's either in my pocket or sitting on the table. I got a red case for my sister the same time I bought my case and her's looks so much better. I don't understand because she handles her phone the same way I do. I'm very disappointed in the blue case.

    Beautiful case, but lacking in durability.

    • Written by from Visalia

    At first, this case was absolutely wonderful to have on my phone. It had that nice scent of leather to it , and the baby blue color looks great on my iPhone 5s. However, after only 2 weeks of gentle use, the lack of durability is starting to show with dark spots of blue around the edges. I read the reviews of others on this product and thought that maybe if I was gentle it would still look great. Silly me, I guess I just expected better quality from Apple. This is a beautiful case, and mostly looks good after a few weeks. Just don't expect the durability to last.

    Awesome leather case!

    • Written by from Imperial

    Finally a affordable all leather, quality iPhone case! The only downside of this case is it scuffs easily so be careful if you have nails! Other than that its awesome! A classy case for your classy iPhone!

    Perfect in every way!

    • Written by from Clarksville

    Fits well, protects phone, beautiful color, sleek not bulky, textured so its not slippery. I treated the leather case before using it and it still looks like new a month later. I have four kids, 11, 9 and 2yo twins. The case gets a lot of use and still looks great! I would highly recommend this case to anyone. I will buy another color soon!

    Apple premium case just falls short, disappointed

    • Written by from Oulu

    I got a 5s and wanted best protection for my phone. Went to my operators shop and they had Apple 5S leather cases. They looked good and trust I had for Apple products got me to buy a blue one (they didn't have a black version :().
    5S flicked into the case easily and the whole thing looked good. Pretty couple indeed...

    PROBLEMS began right the next day. Carried it in a pocket of my black shorts for a couple of hours and then noticed the blue case had absorbed black color from my cotton shorts! The edges of the case had black colouring and it looked like I had gripped it with motor oily hands... The case was supposed to be a premium product and not get dirty so easily. I can't believe how this can be true.

    I feel betrayed by Apple. The case was expensive and now it feels I've been totally fooled by Apple.

    Want a refund right away, but it is hard to contact Apple easily.

    lovely color, nice leather case

    • Written by from Greenlawn

    I purchased this case for my daughter who loves this color. I was very concerned about it getting dirty based upon other reviews and although the color of the case does show a little bit of wear and dirt, it still looks very good. The leather feels nice and while she likes the fact that the case is super slim, I do wish it had a little more of a lip for protection of the front of the phone. There is a very tiny lip which does prevent the glass from hitting the surface when placed face down--I just wish it was a tiny bit more substantial.

    Really appreciate the suede interior to protect the phone. She's really happy with the case and the color is very pretty against her white/gold iPhone.

    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.

    Shows a lot of dirt also there are chips in the leather

    • Written by from joliet

    I LOVED this case when i got it. But for $40 its a terrible case the first thing i noticed was there was a lot of dirt on the outline of the case on the back. and the second big problem is that there are little pieces of the case falling of from scratching i know have leather chips in the case..... So the point is i would not recommend this case to ANYONE its not what you want believe me...

    Nice, but gets dirty very easily

    • Written by from Fort Collins

    At first I loved this case - it's light, sleek, and feels nice. But now I've had it for 3 months, and it is incredibly dirty. I've tried cleaning it multiple times with a leather cleaner, which helps a bit, but it definitely looks bad. It looks much dirtier than it should, and the edges are beginning to get torn up a bit. I would not buy this again, even though I loved it at first.

    Great case!

    • Written by from Roanoke

    I LOVE this blue of this case and it's great at protecting my phone. The only issues I have are that if you do drop your phone, expect the case to be scuffed up a bit (Mine's not too bad after a month), and this case does get dirty easily. If you don't mind your case getting dirty and a few scuff marks, then this is the case for you!

    Beautiful for 1.5 months, useful for 1.5 years

    • Written by from Baltimore

    The color of the leather started to fade after 3 weeks and after something more than 1 month the case looked like years old (people asked me if I bought a used one!).
    The case offers good protection and it's nice at touch and although looking quite bad was working fine for roughly 1 year. After that the small parts on the audio controllers and charge + jack ports started to break down and they partially left the phone uncovered.

    The Apple case, although being a quality and expensive product is cheaply designed and definitely is not worth its price.

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

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

    Simple, form-fitting, soft, but FILTHY

    • Written by from Naples

    I have this case in brown. I have a simple style and I love how this case doesn't scream at me with loads of pattern and color. I also love it for its compatibility with the iPhone 5s. There's something nice about knowing that my phone is manifesting itself fully with a case that was designed just for it. The leather material as also very lovely.

    However, I'm constantly wiping off visibly engrained dirt from the front edges of this case. It's quite aggravating.

    Wears quickly

    • Written by from Kittery

    I bought the brown one for my new 5S. Beautiful fit and finish but it's wearing incredibly fast. What started out a nice orangey shade of brown now looks like the color found at the intersection of Band-Aid buff, hearing aid beige, and artificial limb tan. It's ugly-but it works well.

    Beautiful Case

    • Written by from Plano

    I got this case in the blue color. I was shocked that it so soft to the touch. The case is rigid and has about the same thickness of a plastic case, yet fits so snug on the phone. It had already gotten a bit darker on the edges. As it says on the back of the packaging the color will change with age. The openings at the bottom work well with the apple charger cable and ear pods. I have an aux cable in my car that worked with the defender case, so it is long. Shorter plugs will not work with this case, however some manufacturers make an extension piece that would help with this issue (my Bose head phones came with a long piece to add on). This case is hard to get off the phone, but with time that may change as the leather ages.

    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.
