    AWESOME Case!

    • Written by from Merrickville

    I'm so glad Apple is making iPhone cases again. I ordered the red one for my new white iPhone 5S and it looks awesome. It's snug and thin, the feel of the grain is fantastic. It looks stunning! Very pleased!

    I have the brown case on a black face 5s, this is a perfect fitting case! I've had it for about a month and it is starting to get that rich patina look on the contact areas so it's starting to look like a real nice leather...

    Best case

    • Written by from maldon

    I have the brown case and although it gets dirty and the leather bruises this is part of a vintage character that I like my phone to go fro! The case fits amazingly around the handset and keeps the phone slim whilst still protecting the phone! I strongly recommend this phone case! If you don't want the vintage look go for the black one as that makes the phone look real executive! And doesn't have the dirt problem! But of you want a nice vintage feel go for the brown one.

    Best case I've had yet, and most expensive too!

    • Written by from Cutler Bay

    Absolutely love this case. Needed some convincing from my mother to get this particular case, and seeing other cases on sale for $15-$20 made the decision even harder, considering this case is $40. Decided to go with black for my white 5S, and I am so glad I did, since many other people with cases that are brown, yellow, etc. are seeing dirt and wear after a week or less. This case feels amazing in the hand, much different from a hard plastic or soft plastic. Love the leather smell too. Was very snug as first, but after a week of taking the case off the phone, it breaks in a little bit. Now it's not so tough removing. Still snug though. I like cases that don't add much bulk and weight, and this case is light but rigid, and thin yet protective. This is not a case for butterfingers. I would recommend this case for individuals who don't drop their phone very often, or hate seeing their phone get busted but do not want a big monstrosity suffocating their phone. Very sleek, slim, and sweet. Inside is soft and fuzzy microfiber? Maybe suede? Anyway, this case is well worth $40 as long as it's not going to be abused. Buttons are firmer to press, can't use 30-pin adapter with case on, many headphones and auxiliary cords will not fit, and the silence switch hole can be hard to flip if you have big fingers. I do like how the front edge of the case has a lip so the front doesn't come into contact with surface areas, and the case leaves a rim of aluminum visible, making the phone in case more aesthetically pleasing. Similar to luxury sports cars, this case has some trade-offs to replace functionality with beauty. For example, the holes for the charge cord and auxiliary port are small and not accommodating because it adds strength to the bottom of the case, making it more rigid. If Apple were to open up the bottom of the case, there would be a band of leather around the rim, and it would tear off or be loose. Not pleasing to the eye. Nice design on this case Apple, you nailed it!

    I don't know if I should buy?

    • Written by from Chadds Ford

    Most reviews say that after a month the case gets worn and old looking is that really true and if it is is it only for certain colors which in my case i would choose brown but overall it seems good!

    Black on 5s since phone release day

    • Written by from East Aurora

    High grade aniline leather.
    Fabulous hand, as expected in high end leather goods.
    Beautifully crafted on a hard shell skeleton.
    Fully lined.
    Fits snug like hand in glove, not easily removed, very doable but not easy, then why should a quality case pop on and off.
    At $39. the case in an excellent buy; it is also one of a kind.
    On a 1-10 it's a 10 on all aspects.

    1 month later - The best iPhone case I've found

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I'll start off by saying that I've had this case in the color brown for about a month now. What I look for when case shopping are three different things: quality/fit, design, and protection. In my opinion, apple hit the head on all of these. The phone case is made out of leather, so yes, you're going to have to take care of it differently than a plastic case. After 1 month of use, the case has started to get a nice patina around the edges that will hopefully continue to cover the rest of the case. Yes the color has changed, and yes the edges are darker, but it is LEATHER and in my opinion, this is what gives leather character. If this is a problem for you, but a plastic case. Second, the fit is perfect. It is snug on the phone but is not impossible to get off like others have mentioned. With that said, if you plan on removing the case all the time, this isn't for you. If you're like me, and remove the case once every couple months, you will likely appreciate the fit as I do. Lastly, the design is perfect. It is thin, light, and offers the protection you need with out turning your phone into an armored brick. The edge is slightly raised above the screen to protect it when dropped, and the leather will likely absorb more impact than a piece of plastic. The cut out for the charger and speaker are done with precision, and the buttons are fully protected and accessible at the same time. So with this said, in my opinion apple nailed this. It's not for everyone, and especially not for those who do not like the natural characteristics of leather. To those I say, go buy a plastic case instead.

    Truly amazing

    • Written by from Bangalore

    This is probably one of the best cases I have used .The ports,the holes are precision cut and suite the elegance of the iphone .The feel of the case is so premium and especially the case shows a hint of the gold diamond cut chamfer .Yes the case does get dirty but I have used it for a month but I used a leather cleaner and it somehow removed the dirt and my case looks like new again .This case is meticulously designed just like the iphone !!!

    Beautifully Crafted

    • Written by from South Vienna

    The main point I would like to address is the issue of wear on this case. A lot of people are complaining of discoloration and it wearing too quickly. From my perspective, the case is rather gaudy when you first open it, and it only looks good after some wear. The light weird brown that it starts out as, turns into this beautiful shade of dark, almost shiny, brown. Akin to an Indiana Jones satchel. I wish mine would wear more quickly!

    Perfect Fit Perfect Case

    • Written by from Inver Grove Heights

    I don't understand most of these reviews....the brown leather case is a classy choice. It fits perfectly and snug. All the openings are in just the right locations and because the case is thin it does not add to the width of the phone just like it should be. It does rise up a little from the front screen which is what it should do when resting the phone face down on a table or desk to protect the screen. I have never removed mine since first installing it, I could see that the edges might get loose if you are constantly taking it on and off but you should not need to. The leather ages just like leather should, you can take a soft dish towel with a little water to clean it up by rubbing gently on the surface, it will dry and be clean. All of the ports are cut open exactly in the right place so I don't know why people are reporting issues there. This works for me perfectly and I like the look and feel of the quality of the leather. Get one!

    Don't buy this product

    It's not worth the price I paid because stains and dirt cannot be removed even when you clean this product, you will only get frustrated. It's a scam to buy this product

    Apple does it again

    • Written by from fridley

    I honestly don't see why everyone seems to dislike this product, I'm a Marine and I get dirty everyday. I purchased the brown case seven days ago and it's still in perfect condition, even though I've dropped it twice. Like many proponents of this case have stated it's very soft, smooth, looks great, and what you would expect from apple products.

    Like a previous reviewer, I too had a "close encounter" with my iPhone 5S and a concrete floor, but the Apple case absorbed the impact quite well. Although I have to admit that I also have a Moshi screen protector, I believe that the case was the reason why my phone escaped unscathed. After reading about all of the issues regarding the lighter colored cases, I'm glad that black is my favorite pigment. Because the leather used for this case is aniline, there's not a lot one can do about cleaning scuff marks and such other than wiping it with a dampened clean cotton cloth. As for my black case, it just keeps looking and feeling better every day.

    Love the worn and aged look

    • Written by from FOLSOM

    I notice that there are a lot of reviews complaining about the case getting dirty and showing signs of wear. Funny, this is the thing I love about the case. And in the end, it's authentic leather and is doing what it should be doing. If you want a case that looks pristine and new forever, move on, this is not the case for you. If you want a case that looks unique and antique and has character, this might be the one...it is for me.
