    Worst Apple Product I have ever bought

    • Written by from Tampa

    First time you hold one of these cases you will fall in love. Then three days later you will be kicking yourself for buying it.
    The leather has to be some of the cheapest junk produced. It absorbs everything it comes in contact with and looks like rubbish.

    Looks & feel great but not for long

    • Written by from Rio de Janeiro

    Its made of a great leather and it's interior is very soft, doing a great job absorbing impact and keeping the iPhone safe.
    At first the case looks great and gorgeous, and after three years buying all kinds of cases I can definitely say this one is the best looking and with the best grip ever.

    Unfortunately the leather gets damage really easily just from being in your pants pocket and for that it gets really dark, like its dirty. After just three days of use mine looked horrible. It's been a month now and I'm looking forward to throw it away and never buying Apple Cases again.

    Expensive and doesn't last long!

    • Written by from McKinleyville

    I have the red case and after a few days using it looks awful - dirty and old. I tried cleaning it and it only made it worse. Also I have to take it out of the case sometimes and now the case has bent so the fit doesn't fit in it well. I'm very disappointed spending as much money as I did and it being an apple product I expect the quality standards to be much greater than this. Do not spend your money on this case!

    Aesthetics vs Practicality

    • Written by from Courtice

    The case looks beautiful and it fits the phone perfectly. HOWEVER, the feeling lasts only for a few days...a week if you're lucky enough. I bought a red one and it got very dirty right away. I honestly don't think that it is reasonable to spend so much time and effort taking care of a phone case. For the happy customers, maybe you have enough time in your hands to waste on something as silly as that, but I don't. I don't have time to apply coats and coats of products to it and to have to clean it every week. This is ridiculous! I am going to the store today (one week after buying it) to return it and I am going to look for other options. If you only care about aesthetics and you have lots of time in your hands to take care of a case, go ahead and buy it. If you want/need to be more practical, stay away from the Iphone 5s apple leather cases.

    This case is slowly breaking my phone.

    • Written by from phoenix

    Love the look and feel even though the color of the case has gotten considerably darker since it was purchased. My main issue with the case is it's causing my phone to slowly break.

    Because the case fits so snug it makes it difficult to take off. Every time I do attempt to take it off (which is often because the lightning adapter was not designed for this case) it puts a lot of pressure on the phone when I pull it out. Now the glue that holds the top glass is starting to give. I can see the glass is slightly raised from the metal edge and it can be pushed back into place with my fingers. It's evident that if I continue to use this case it will break my phone.

    This case is not a solution for protecting your phone if you intend to take the phone out of the case! Apple geniuses you'll be hearing from me soon!

    Turns Black In 24 Hours

    • Written by from Bozeman

    I was really excited to finally receive this red leather case from Apple. But within 24 hours the edges were already turning dark. After another 24 hours, the back started getting dark, especially the apple logo itself. Now (about 1 week after receiving it) it looks dark, dirty, grimy, and almost gross. And this is just with normal use. It goes in my pocket at work and comes out at home. And that's it. But looking at it, you'd think that I had it for at least a year. Without a case, my phone looks beautiful and brand new, but is without protection. And with it, it looks old and dirty, but is at least protected. And that's the trade off with this case.

    TL;DR Stay away!

    • Written by from Midland

    The case looks and feels wonderful for the first day or two you have it. The choice of leather used is one that is extremely fragile and is highly unsuited for its purpose. I had previously heard about some of the issues with the case so I took my time and used a variety of leather products to protect it to no avail.

    You are better off looking for another case, do not waste your money. Until the type of leather used for the case is changed to one that is more durable after a month or two you'll be looking to replace it. Not because its stained or lost its color but because it physically is tearing and falling apart from the friction of keeping it in a side pocket. I cannot reccomend the case nor will I be purchasing a replacement.

    Nice case, bad quality

    • Written by from De Pere

    I bought the iPhone 5S case (RED) because I wanted to support the cause and also because it looked and fits perfectly.

    I had it for just a few days and its a;ready dirty and looking wear out, try to clean with a wet rag and the color starts to appear on the rag and it gets worst.

    Apple should have thought on the day to day use and how would this affect this cases. Unfortunately I will not use it too long cause e it looks bad.

    Initially I was very happy with the purchase. After a week of use the bright beautiful red leather has become marred with the exchange of life. I researched how to clean the case of the apple website and followed the instructions. That's when I decided to write this review. The case did not revert back to its initial luster. Disappointed

    Disappointed in the design

    • Written by from Princeton

    Hard to imagine I am saying this about an apple product, but these leather cases are poorly designed:

    1. Poor Function: The opening for the headphones is too small, so it is hard to get your headphones to get a good connection. At first we thought something was wrong with the headphones, but it is actually the case. We had to take the case off everytime we wanted to use teh headphones.

    2. Poor materials: The leather case attracts dirt like crazy. We expected the leather to wear, as all leather does, but within a week the case just looked gross.

    3. Poor durability: After 5 weeks the case cracked in two places. I can't believe this cost $39. Asking for a refund.

    Red Case ... Too Dirty

    • Written by from Bethesda

    I was very excited for this case, and I have used it for a few weeks. At first, I was very happy with the case, but now case looks horrible. After typical usage, it turns black on all edges. It cannot be cleaned as I have tried a few different methods.

    Red leather receives wear easily, poor quality.

    • Written by from Lakewood

    I loved this product red case when I first purchased it. After about a week, it became filthy with normal use. The phone was either in my pocket or on my desk yet would pick up mass amounts of wear.

    My roommate has the black case and his looks as new as the day he bought it. Apple would not let me return the product because of the disclaimer that it is leather and will receive normal wear. However this seems beyond excessive and of poor quality., especially for the price. Very disappointed.

    Returned after one week!

    • Written by from Nederland

    I loved the look of this case before they even released it with the iPhone 5s. I got my space gray 5s the day is came out at Verizon, and just as I was about to leave the store, a UPS shipment came with the cases. The lady who helped me checkout came rushing to me with the cases because I had mentioned thats what I was going to order after she tried to sell me every case in the store! So, you could say I was very excited to get the red case!!

    The case WAS so nice and contrasted very well with the black screen, BUT the next freakin day I started to notice the edges on the back of the case where I grasp the phone were starting to turn brownish black. The color change proceeded very quickly the next few days (especially putting it in my jean pockets) until I couldn't stand it anymore and had to remove the case (which was a very hard process by the way) and return it. This was very upsetting because the red case was my favorite case next to the Apple bumpers I had for my 4s. I exchanged the red for the black case. The black does not show any signs of wear (unless you look really closely and you can see its a worn down) after about two months of use, but the black is really plain compared to the red.

    I wish Apple would correct this problem. I have never been disappointed in an Apple product before until now.

    So save your $40 and buy something else!!!!!

    I've had the case for abotu three weeks and it does look way too faded for the amount of time I've had it. I spent $40 for a less than a month case because I'm looking for a new one already.
