    Looks great but terrible quality

    • Written by from CRAIGAVON

    As a lifelong fan of Apple's products I was massively disappointed with this case. When I seen that Apple had designed a case specifically for the amazing iPhone 5c I figured I couldn't go wrong with it. But sadly the quality isn't what you expect from an Apple product. Firstly the case attracts dirt so easily that at least once a day you'll be cleaning the dirt of the phone. Secondly after having my case on my phone for about two or three months almost all of the outer layer of the case has been ripped or worn away and I can honestly say that this is not down to excessive wear and tear on my part. Such a shame as the case itself looks fantastic against the color of the iPhone 5c itself but sadly the case itself is of incredibly poor quality to carry the Apple logo.

    Dust magnet!

    After spending a lot of money on this genuine case I thought it looked great when it arrived, the build quality is great and is very well designed. However, after taking it out of my pocket for the first time the case was covered in dust, and I mean covered! After cleaning it and returning the phone to my pocket, I had the same problem again and again and again! I ended up having to use water to clean the stubborn bits of dust off until I became so frustrated that I stopped using the case and have requested a full refund.

    If you will keep the phone in a bag, or somewhere dust free then this case is great, but for me, no no no no no, impossible, I'm sure there will be lots of frustrated buyers out there. Buy at your own risk!

    Design Flaw

    • Written by from BRISTOL

    Is anyone else bothered by the slight oversight in the design of the case?

    The apple iPhone text shows through the back of the cutouts on the 5C case. This just makes it look like an ill considered error and breaks up the purity and simplicity of the design. Maybe its just me but I really dont think this type of lack of attention to detail is Apple at all.. usually every measurable detail is considered in making their products as perfectly designed as possible.

    Or maybe its just me being a bit anally retentive!

    Form over function

    • Written by

    A really lovely looking case, it feels nice in your hand and does a good job of protecting the phone, however....there are BIG drawbacks.

    My phone constantly looks grubby and dusty! After putting my phone in the back pocket of my jeans (which I very often do), it comes out with a film of fluff all over the case, which is a real pain to get off. Add to that the holes on the back, and you've got yourself one sorry looking phone, which constantly need wiping. Very annoying.

    Apple products always look so nice, but this is the first product I've ever been really disappointed in. £25 definitely not well spent.

    excellent grip!

    protects the phone really well. I like the holes as I can see the colour of my phone through it (even though little bits get trapped between)! Hope it will come in leather soon...

    Simple but effective

    • Written by from Lutterworth

    Nice design, very accurately manufactured.

    As with many Apple products, this feels minimalist in its approach, but it looks as if it will provide a decent level of protection for my 5C. Without a case, the phone is a little slippery, (because it is so shiny!), but this is grippy without being bulky.
