    Does not protect, Wears easily

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I dropped my phone on flat tile, the frame of my phone was dented and the screen popped out.. my phone is screwed. It doesn't protect, the phone falls out of the case when dropped. The quality isn't so great, the leather is already scraping off, and looks dirty. my case is 1 month old. This case is overpriced and does not protect as well as the rubber TPU ones found on ebay.

    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.

    Worst product ever

    • Written by from Manizales

    I purchased this case 3 days ago and today it was already damaged. With a careful usage i gave my new iPhone 5s and it's case, only with the rub of my pocket, the case got really ugly and it looks like I had it for years. I really don't recommend it to anyone and I hope that apple takes them away of their catalogues.

    Nice case but get the black

    • Written by from Liberty Township

    This is a nice leather case but get the black. Got a yellow for my wife and brown for myself. Gets dirty quickly and impossible to clean. Have only had a couple of months and both are very stained. Tried a leather cleaner, no results.

    Wears poorly, lightning adapter doesn't fit.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've now had the brown case for ~6 weeks and can honestly say that while the fit of the case is great, it wears EXTREMELY poorly. From the first day I had the case, the leather started darkening on all the edges. It's not dirty, but it looks absolutely AWFUL. Not to mention, if you drop your phone on rug, it can actually peel back some of the leather from the edges.

    Also, Apple's own 30-pin to Lightning Adapter (the one with the cable), doesn't fit the lightning port cutout on the case, and actually 'clips' the leather. So disappointing.

    I'm honestly shocked that Apple let such a mediocre product go to market. :(

    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.

    Please dont buy- Please stop selling this product

    • Written by from Jagadhri

    I never expect that apple is making this kind of quality product. i buy brown colour ,in a minute leather is coming off from corners even of normal use.

    Why not buy??
    1) Leather quality not up to mark and can come off with normal use
    2) Get dirty easily and not able to clean at home without professional leather cleaner products.
    3) Too expensive.
    People are giving good review on first use experences but latter the experence with product is too bad

    Please Apple u must review your quality control before lauching a new product as we have great expection from you and ur brand is our part of family

    Please stop selling for this product.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from СПб

    I purchased brown case for my white iphone and it looked just great initially. It fits phone really nice. But only after a couple of days, the case began to lose it's color. Then, dark scuffs have appeared. Now, only after three weeks after purchase it looks just horrible, as if I was using it for years! Just incredible, how apple managed to get this thing to wear off so quickly. Very disappointed.

    Appealing on Shelf but wears out quickly -Low quality

    • Written by from Washington

    Case looked great when I first bought it. Now a month later it is very worn out. Lots of reviews say it looks dirty. but I believe this is just the leather rubbing off. I used leather cleaner and it barely removed any dirt, yet the case still looked terrible. This is because the leather is so thin it wears off very quickly. What a waste of 40 bucks!

    Dressy to dirty in one week

    • Written by from Eagle

    The case looks great when you put it on but the good times don't last. Looks like you have been through grease and grime within and week and then it just gets worse. Fits the phone well and is slim and sleek but who cares if all you can see is the dirt.

    One Month In

    • Written by from Hermantown

    I own the black, the red, and the tan iPhone 5S leather cases. I took some extra steps in preserving the leather knowing that any leather product that I've owned in my 30 years of life will eventually show wear. I applied several layers of water/oil proof spray (like you get at a shoe store) and leather multi-color wipes on my tan and red cases. On my black, I picked up a container of leather wipes (like you use in a car). All three look in perfect condition a month in. The tan doesn't have any dark marks on the buttons or anything else, neither does the red. The black looks better than when I first bought it.

    Note:
    I wear suites 5-6 days a week and typically won't put my leather cases in dark jeans.

    These are great cases, with a little common sense, your money will be well spent.

    DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Topeka

    Hi,

    I have had this case for 1 month. I have dropped my iPhone twice from a height of 12 inches accidentally and both times the screen was completely shattered. It does not protect the phone unless your phone falls directly on its back. Horrible case. Waste of 40 dollars. Won't even let me return the case anymore. Extremely disappointed with this apple product.

    Pretty but not practical

    • Written by from PETALUMA

    My husband and I both bought this case. We love the fit and feel of the case but just make sure you never drop it! Within two weeks of having the phone with the case, we dropped our phones (obviously at different times), and quickly had tears in the leather. My tears are worse because I was outside and it landed on the sidewalk. Good news is that the phones are unmarked but the bad news is that we will shortly need new cases. We are very disappointed because the case fits so perfectly and looks so nice. Hope we can get a refund?????

    PS : we bought the black and blue case (not brown)

    Fantastic case, literally made for the phone

    • Written by from Holly Springs

    The good:
    - Case is hard to remove, which means the phone won't come out easily. Inconvenient only for complainers.
    - Fits perfectly; every line and cutout are in perfect position, showing Apple's attention to detail is maintained.
    - That genuine leather feel.
    - It discolors. Leather discolors and yes, I think this is a good thing. Like the leather on my steering wheel, it went from matte over the past few years, and slowly absorbed my skin oils to have a slight polished look to it. As it absorbs the oils, it changes color, but those oils also enhance its durability. Stop whining about it already.

    The bad:
    - Price. Could have been $10 cheaper, but I'll live.

    Great case -- plus removal trick

    • Written by from Columbia

    First, many people here have criticized that the case is hard to take off. It's not--you just need to spend a few moments learning how to do it. The trick is that you need to smartly work both bottom corners. Hold the phone with a bottom corner facing straight up ^ and pop it from both sides. Then do the same to the other corner. Once both sides of the bottom are popped, work one side just a little more. The phone is out. No problem.

    When you're putting the case back on, slide it in from the top so the bottom two corners are the last ones in, and push.

    If Apple hadn't made the case so snug, it would not hold on if you dropped your phone toward the front. it wouldn't be as protective.

    I have both the black and PRODUCT (RED) cases, and switch between them. They feel great, add surprisingly little thickness, and always get compliments.

    You want this case. You need this case. You'll be very happy with this case.

    Red & Black Cases Rock

    I have both cases. The Red is super slick. Actually love the fact the Red show wear and dirt...makes it mine and gives it a distinctive look. The results is a natural weathering process. Fantastic!

    Great Case and Good Looking

    • Written by from Astoria

    I try to make objective reviews. I've had it for a month and it looks just like the day I bought it. I don't baby it but I keep it clean and don't abuse my phone. Many people complain it gets dirty and changes color. There's been very slight minimal darkening around the edges if you examinine it under a lamp, but the leather feels great and still looks great. The case weighs nothing. Fits my Klipsh 3.5mm jack and I love it.
