    5S Brown Leather Case

    • Written by from Aptos

    Day 1: Beautiful color...snug fitting...great match with the Gold 5S....feels great....no regrets.
    Day 2 and Beyond: Blackened edges....hand prints and oils/grime can't be cleaned off surface. Disappointment.

    I was hesitant to spend the $ for this case based on some of the reviews here. I was nervous that it would look dirty after one week and be extremely difficult to remove.

    Neither has been the case for me. It's snug but easy to remove. Pry it from the bottom gently and pull. Easy. It protects the phone and looks great. It's engineered to tight tolerances so all your buttons, though covered, work perfectly. The only cutout that might give one problems is the one for the headphone jack. I had to push in my jack fairly hard to get it to fit snug. After about a week, the leather adjusted and now the jack fits just fine.

    It's light. It protects. It looks great. Smells great, too. The more it ages, the more it feels like suede.

    Do Not Buy in Blue!

    • Written by from Durham

    When I bought my iphone I bought the blue case with it. For a $40 case it was horrible! Within a week the leather looked dirty and scratched (even though I take good care of my phone) If you want to buy this case buy it in black, otherwise do NOT get it at all.

    Great fit but limits the performance of Siri.

    • Written by from Houston

    I'm perplexed in my review here. For purely functioning as a case, this case is hands down the best case I have ever bought. Extremely snug fit. Great quality and meets my expectations for those aspects. I'm really particular in a case also protecting the corners because I have seen one too many broken screens for me to take a chance on a case not protecting the front. This case is designed to appear to leave the corners and front exposed, but it doesn't. It has a very small rise above the top all the way around to give me comfort there.

    My one issue is this case has significantly degraded the microphone clarity. Siri doesn't recognize much anymore. I tested without the case and it's way better. I've tested with other cases and it's way better. So, I recommend this case but know that limit.

    Amazing case guys..

    • Written by from SALEM

    Im sorry but for people who are saying this is a bad case its really not! I love the feeling in my hand it feels amazing.. I bought it when i just bought my iPhone 5S 64 GB as a just for now until i get otter box but this protected my phone so well.. I'm not going to get otter box! I went to turn the flashlight on my phone on and it flung out of my hand up to ATLEAST 7 feet in the air.. hit the ground right on the front screen then bounced and the front got hit at least 3 times.. before it finally landed in the snow.. and its still perfect... the case did crack though..BUT its better than shattering my case.. i love this case guys.. its amazing don't let anything else discourage you.. Great case to go with iPhone!

    Wears out very fast

    • Written by from Lenoir City

    I bought this due to the really nice color, which I felt would look very nice with my gold 5S. Unfortunately, as others mention in their reviews, the color starts to rub off of the leather after just a few days. I bought mine on a Saturday night and by Monday it was already bare around the corners. I think tanned leather would have been much better. This product is not up to par for Apple, and should be skipped by any 5 and 5s owners.

    Lovely case which gets dirty easily

    • Written by from Stockton

    I have the cream version if this case. It fits my phone perfectly and is soft inside so it doesn't get scratched.
    The only thing is the corners have gone dark through usage, and this is only after a few months, so it looks a bit scruffy.
    Any advice on what to clean it with would be much appreciated!

    Bad case - it tears!

    • Written by from Harris

    My 1 month old case has just tore. The case has a weak point next to the protuberance that covers the volume buttons of the iphone. When I was taking the iphone out of the case, it tore in this weak point (no, I didn't use too much force, or bended it too much, and I think this was the 5th or 6th time I took the iphone out of the case). Don't waste your money.

    Near Perfect

    • Written by from Arlington

    I just can't understand some of these reviews, and how this case would get any less than 4 stars. This is the best case that I've ever used on any iPhone, an I've owned every iPhone. First of all, the fit is perfect. Some people gave it low ratings because it is hard to take off because it's so snug -- maybe because it FITS PERFECTLY. The case isn't designed to be removed and put back on every day and used with your dock -- it's leather, and leather stretches ...basic physics. The first time you put it on, it will be a tight fit, but every hole will line up perfectly, unlike many other cases. The fit and finish is flawless. Second, yes, the leather wears and changes in appearance. Again, this is because it's leather ...which changes in appearance. If you want the case to look the exact same as when you first bought it, buy a plastic case. And this is also why there is a note that says "this case will change in appearance over time" on the package. The case feels perfect in the hand and is beautifully made. Unless you have a ton of proprietary accessories that you want to use with it, or you're looking for a "rugged" case like an OtterBox, do yourself a favor and try it out.

    • Written by from Seattle

    I bought a Beige leather case for my iphone 5s because i love the colour beige! it unfortunately got dirty in no time due to the nature of my work working in the garage and getting greasy palms etc.
    Is there a way to clean my leather case? with what chemical and what type of cloth???

    It's Okay

    • Written by from El Mirage

    The case looks luxuriously elegant, but the leather weathers easily. I have had mine for 2 months and the edges of the leather case are now dry and shedding pieces of the case. For the price of the case, it doesnt last very long.

    Great case!!

    • Written by from Grand Haven

    I absolutely love this case. I was originally going to buy this case when i got my iPhone 5s but i got an otter box instead, so after feeling a little buyers remorse I finally broke down and bought it. This case at first was a little stiff but that was expected, after a few days it loosened up and the leather feels great and looks awesome, it is leather so after a while it will begin to take on its own look, kind of like a patina, so it will look more and more one of kind after every adventure you bring it on. overall great case apple and I think you will like it too.
