    Style over substance

    • Written by from London

    Looks nice, is very sleek and apple like, however wont fit an auxillary pin you will have to remove it (btw removing case fr the first time is likely to damage it as it is not very flexible).

    More importantly THIS CASE WILL NOT PROTECT YOUR IPHONE, IF YOU DROP YOUR PHONE IT CAN AND WILL SHATTER THE SCREEN. This has now happened to me twice and I'm not talking dropping it out of the window I mean having it on your lap when you step out of the car.

    Buy if you wish to have a case that looks nice but will offer minimal protection for your phone.

    this item needs a 95% discount to make it worthwile.

    Looks great but gets dirty very fast.

    • Written by from Maspeth

    I bought brown cover for my white iPhone 5s. It covers it very well and tight, when lay phone down on its face it doesn't touch the surface. The only and huge minus is how fast it gets dirty. I had to throw it away after a bit more than 2 months. I would say this cover and color it is great for someone who changes covers very often and the price does not matter.

    Excellent Case

    • Written by from Andrews

    I almost didnt buy this case because of all the bad reviews. Almost every review on here says they could not keep the case clean. Im so glad i chose to see for myself, because I love this case! I got the brown one so maybe the lighter colors are harder to keep clean. I have had mine for about two months and it is still as clean as the day I got it, Iv never even had to wipe a smudge off. I have not taken extra care with it, I use it with dirty hands while outside and even use it when my hands are covered in lotion. I have already dropped it several times and the case doesnt even have a scratch on it. It is still in perfect condition. I also dont find it hard to take off, it pops off the same as all other back cases I have owned. If you are looking for a heavy duty case then the otterbox would probally be better, but if you are just looking for basic protection that has a classy look this is the best option.

    Liked it at first

    • Written by from Cheshire

    I liked the style of this case very much when I first got it, although it was really tough to get on and off. When I took it off it squeezed the buttons so hard my phone would try to shut off. It would also randomly turn up the volume and make the volume buttons stick. After having it for maybe less than 6 months, it's now just starting to fall apart. The leather cracked near the vibrate switch, so it's loose. Now it comes off too easily. I thought it was pretty expensive and I hoped it would last awhile, but i'm already in the market for a new one. Disappointed.

    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!

    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.

    Nice case, but needs to be darker

    • Written by from Bowmanville

    The colour of the brown case is more like "moccasin". It shows wear and dirt on the corners a bit. If it was a darker brown, it would be 5 stars. I've had mine for 2 months. I definitely would not recommend any of the lighter pastel colours. Black would not have the problem.

    The case itself is great. Light, thin, good grip, nice thin lip to protect the front so you can put it face-down on a table.

    Some people say it is hard to remove the case, but it is not too bad. Just pop the bottom out first. You do have to pry the phone out a bit after that, and it usually trips the silence-ringer switch, but it is good to know that the phone won't fall out of the case on its own.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Woodstock

    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...

    Very nice case, but expensive for what you get

    • Written by from Calgary

    I just finished using this case (Red one) for one month (and overseas for 14 days). I read all the reviews prior to buying it and the biggest fear was the case would show 'wear" very quickly. I used the phone as my primary camera on my trip, so it was in/out of my pocket each day many times a day (on the plane, train, bus). So I think this is about as much usage per day as possible.

    The first two weeks while at home, it stayed very clean and fresh. I drive at home and use it very lightly. After my trip, it looked like it was "well used". The color changed to a deep red (rather than bright red). There were many marks on the edges surrounding the face. The back had slight discoloration for parts that were dirtier (I cleaned the case each day with a towel). Apple's description on the box does say the product will change color as it is used (I don't have the exact text in front of me), so this was expected.

    Only slight concern was the leather was slightly pulling away around the top of the black ring that surrounds the camera lens. I took it to Apple store after my trip and the rep was nice enough to change it for me. This is when looking at a new case beside the used case that it was super obvious with the changes in color/wear.

    I would have given 3 stars for the product overall, but since the rep changed it for me, I gave it 4 stars. If the price was a bit lower, I would give it 5 stars.

    Good but not great

    • Written by from Greenville

    This case has a good fit with the 5s and has managed numerous drops with no damage. However, the red color began to show signs of fading immediately. The black case below the leather shows through the red leather. If I had to purchase again, I would buy the black so the faded color would not be so apparent.

    Good at first, bad after 3/4 months

    • Written by from POINTE-AUX-TREMBLES

    I purchased this case the day I got my iPhone (white). It really looked great at that time.
    I knew the look of the case would change with the usage of the phone, so it wasn't surprised when the leather started looking old. It looked great! BUT after 2/3 months of usage, it just started to look dirty.... What's the point of having such a neat looking iPhone in an ugly and dirty case.... Good case if you wish to spend around 40$ for 2/3 months....

    Love the Feel - Insane that it doesn't work with Apple Pin Adapter

    • Written by from Rensselaer

    I love the feel of this case, and that it keeps my phone feeling light and it looks nice. It would be nice if it came in more color choices. Unfortunately, I'm debating whether or not I should keep using this case. My favorite iPhone accessory is my iHome charger/alarm clock/speaker. Unfortunately, since this "Apple" case only has a small cut out at the bottom, the "Apple" pin adapter will not fit with this case on the phone. It floors me that this wasn't taken into consideration with the design.

    Beautiful, not quite there yet . . .

    • Written by from Ashland

    The texture of this leather case is nicely matte, you can grab and grip the iphone without it slipping out of your hand.

    The problem is the leather is not rigid enough to lay snugly against the sides of the phone. It gaps, allowing dust and stuff to wander in.

    Nice first try, Apple. I look forward to V2.

    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.

    iPhone face cracked - this offers very little protection

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    Buyer beware!

    I have had iPhones since the 3G came out and have never cracked the face. After only a couple weeks or so of having this case, the phone took a small tumble and the phone cracked. Such a bummer!

    I have had iPhones for a long time and had so many drops, I have lost count. This case didn't hold the phone in, so when it fell, the edge hit the floor and the screen cracked. Truly, this case does not provide protection.

    so disappointing

    • Written by from Toronto

    I have this case in brown and have been using it for about a month now. The edges are totally worn down and it looks filthy. Super annoying that the headphone jack cannot be accessed with the case on. Such a poor design. The quality is really not there. Overpriced and poorly thought out.

    Rip Off!! Very bad cover for the price

    This looked good just for a week. I use the phone very delicately. Just by the end of first week the leather turned black with all kinds of marks and it looks like a piece of junk. Please do not buy it.

    Nice case but... not compatible with many accessories

    • Written by from Oak Park

    Up front, I really like the case. It fits well, is comfortable in my hand, is thin and looks great. My issue is that it inhibits using many accessories that require a Lightning plug. For instance, the case needs to be removed to use Apple's own Lightning-to-30 PIN adaptor (so that you don't have to trash all your old cables); otherwise, you can't insert the Lightning plug far enough. Same goes for many audio systems and compatible radios, including Bose, Sony and iHome. The hole surrounding the Lightning port needs to be changed.
