    I purchased this case in Red when I got my iPhone 5S and the case feels great!! Adds some grip to the phone, its light, the buttons work great (power button is a little harder to press) and it looks very sleek. BUT after 1 day of owning the phone, the case was already starting to show wearing along the edges and any kind of scratch. If it weren't for my phone having bluetooth issues and me taking it back the next day for a new phone, I probably wouldn't have been able to swap it out with a black case. I have had the black case for a couple of months now and it still looks great. SO Great case... only if you get it in black!

    Iphone 5s - Beige Cover

    • Written by from Sydney

    Just bought my iphone 5s and the beige cover and the first day I have used it, the leather is already showing signs of wear and stains. I am very disappointed with the quality of this product, especially considering that I have chosen this Apple cover over the wide variety of covers on offer.

    Tight squeeze

    • Written by from Dannebrog

    The tight fit is worth it! I bought the camel brown case about a month ago. Put it on as soon as I got it and just took it off for the first time. No dirt, no crumbs, no dust! I do not baby my phone, it's had plenty of opportunities to get junk between it and the cover. In fact, the reason why I bought this case is because my previous off-brand case scratched the back of my phone less than a day after getting the new 5s.

    Outside of the tight fit, my case has shown signs of hand grease in the places where I hold the phone the most (the sides), not at all surprising with the leather exterior. I think it shows a worn leather look.

    I recommend this case to everybody looking for a case that will keep the junk away from their phone, who likes a unique look, and someone whose proud of showing off the Apple emblem on the back!

    Worst in Class

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case feels great. And looks amazing on Day 1. But after 2 weeks its gets stained up and dirty. Does not weather well at all and ends up looks really bad. But...Day 1 was great.

    Quality product

    • Written by from Moose Jaw

    I read the mostly bad reviews before buying this but thought I'd give it a try anyway. Honestly it's not that bad. I've had the case on for about a month and I would not call the appearance dirty, not mine anyway. It looks "aged" is probably the best way to describe it. I don't mind the look one bit, although maybe mine isn't as bad as some others. It's real leather, it will change color slightly and I'm good with that.

    The case itself is very high quality and aside from a slight discoloring it's a fabulous case. If a slight discoloration on the edges bothers you, don't buy it.

    Could be better...

    • Written by from Bronx

    I bought this case in red. I wanted a stylish case that would also fully protect my phone. As far as minimalist protection goes, this case is GREAT! It keeps the phone very secure and well protected without adding a lot of weight to the phone or taking away from the design. However it gets dirty and wears VERY easily with general use. I only keep my phone in my purse, my coat pocket, and on my desk at home and work. Nothing out of the ordinary. Yet I have had to clean it off at least twice a week to keep it looking fresh and new. I also began noticing slight nicks in the material. I haven't even had it for a full month. Unacceptable for a case that cost almost $45 (with tax).

    Looks really bad after only a week

    • Written by from Doral

    I purchased this case exactly 1 month ago. I originally like the case. However, after a week or so, the case started to look very worn. The sides started to rub off, and the color has faded. This is a hard to remove case and doesn’t fit other cables than the original lightning cable from Apple.

    Beautiful but not practical

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Thin, pretty and protects screen/back.
    A bit slippery - better than with no case at all.
    Most slightly textured plastic cases are less slippery.

    Any sharp object can damage the leather, it's a very soft leather with no coating.
    I was expecting shoes grade leather for durability. Was a bit surprised it is the softest version of leather.

    Avoid keys, hard surfaces(concrete) and dirt.

    Buy the balck cover, this one stains VERY EASILY

    • Written by from Georgetown

    Loved the idea of a leather casing. Bought the brown leather cover to keep the Apple aesthetics and remain loyal to the brand. Unfortunately after just two or three days the brown case would stain very easily, I repeat, very easily. I’m disappointed cause I spent 50 dollars on something that now I don’t like, but makes my iPhone looks horrible. Wish I can trade it of for a black cover at least.

    Um, wash your hands?

    • Written by from Burlington

    This is a high qualtiy case and I think the people complaining that it "gets dirty" must be dirty themselves and have disgusting hands. Maybe they aren't worthy of a nice quality leather case and should stick to a cheap plastic one, or maybe they should just buy some soap. I have had this case for weeks and it looks exactly as it did when I opened it. It's exactly how you would expect a leather Apple case to be. The leather smells great, the case fits perfectly, what more do you want? If you handle it gently and aren't a disgusting 3rd world freak then it will probably last a lifetime. If you are a low class pig, or need to handle the phone while on the job w/ dirty hands, then it's probably not for you. End of discussion.

    Exactly what I needed!

    • Written by from BROOKSVILLE

    The iPhone 5 and 5s are already the most durable iPhone yet, but that just wasn't good enough for me, considering how important this product is to me and how likely I am to do detrimental damage to the phone with no protection. However, I cringed at the thought of having to pull a brick out of my pocket every time I wanted to use it. This is the perfect solution. It protects the phone completely from almost any damage I can inflict on it in a day. Drops into any surface from chest or head level don't harm the phone in the slightest, however concrete drops have made some scuffs on the case itself, which is fine compared to what would happen otherwise. On top of that, I don't even need a screen protector to prevent scratches because the case comes slightly over the level of the screen, eliminating that need.

    This is a small but powerful case. Stylish, and engineered to perfection, it's well worth the money.

    horrible case- waste of money

    Bought the case for $40. Solid for one week. Next thing you know the edges are logo get incredibly dirty and there is no way to remove them. Total waste of $40.

    Great Case!! Go Apple Go!

    • Written by from Wellington

    I have red all reviews and I don't really understand why people would by a case and then wanting to remove it prom the phone! If you buy a case or any other brand, you want the case not to be removed. I can see people remove it as they want to use the dock connector or the power adaptor. Go and buy a cable that does not need the adaptor and if you want to use the dock, well this case is not for you.
    I have had this case for over 3 weeks and it looks like the first day :) I am very happy with it.

    PS I do not work for Apple, I am an Apple fanatic since the year 1999,

    Love the look, does not stay clean

    • Written by from Traverse city

    Loved this for my white iPhone 5s but after just days of having it, all of the edges were filthy and there was no way of cleaning it. I would suggest apple selling a protectant for this case that comes with it or provide something to clean it with. Looks and feels great when it isn't dirty.

    It will deter theft of your iPhone

    • Written by from Richmond

    I got the brown leather case for my iPhone 5s the same day both were released. I loved it! It looked great! Felt great in my hand and it protected my nice new iPhone! After five months of use it still feels good, it still protects my iPhone, but it looks horrible! There are no rips or tears or anything, it is just dirty and old looking. Apple warns "the appearance will change with use". It should say "becomes really ugly really fast". On the plus side it looks so bad it will probably deter theft of my iPhone!

    Dont be fooled

    • Written by from Pahrump

    I thought this was the perfect compliment to my ipad mini brown leather case but found out in 2 weeks the poor quality and dye issues with this case. After fading color and edges peeling I went back to the apple store at town square in las vegas where I purchased it and was told by 2 employees that is the way it is supposed to age. Very disappointing from an apple product that should be better quality

    Fits really tight to the phone, and the case is hard to take off.... Also the case gets very dirty and hard to keep clean.
