    Beautiful but not useful

    This case is the only case for iPhone 5s which is made by Apple. If you buy other brand's case from Apple, you cannot get the warranty from Apple. To get rid of this inconvenience, this one is the only choice for me. However, it is not as good as I expected. The case is made of leather, it is very beautiful (mine is red) and very light in weight. But the feeling of the buttons are very poor. It takes a lot of effort to use the power button. And the case is a little bit smooth that it's easy for me to fall the phone from my hand. So I return it.

    Excellent protection but doesnt last

    I was really excited when apple came out with these colorful leather cases for the 5s. When the case came in, it looked great! Unfortunately, the leather has not held up very well after a few weeks of use. The case is very dirty and cannot be cleaned. Also, its scuffed up on the edges. My old rubber case still looks like new after a year of use, so ill be going back to this case. Im trying not to think about the $39 that i waisted on this:( If you decide to buy this, i would steer away from any color other than black.

    Not impressed...

    Right out if the box I am not impressed. This case is merely a piece of cardboard with imitation leather on the outside and cheap felt on the inside. It doesn't fit the phone tightly enough to keep debris from getting between it and the phone. There are actually fairly significant gaps along the sides of the screen. I though this would be a good replacement for my speck candyshell satin (discontinued) but I was wrong. Should have bought another candyshell as it's a superior case compared to this waste of material.

    apple accessories only

    If you have any non apple accessories this case wont work. The bottom holes are so tight that any non apple headphones wont fit. I've got a pair of Bose MIE2i headphones that can't be plugged in. Also no third party lightening cords (ie amazon basics) will fit.

    Otherwise, its real leather, and the case looks pretty sharp but no 3rd part accessories is a deal breaker for me.

    Best iPhone 5s Case

    I recently purchased this case a couple days ago and it's great! It fits the phone perfectly and feels amazing in your hand. The leather on here feels great and the material inside the case insures your phone won't get scratched up. A lot of these other reviews are misleading, this is the best case you're going to find for your iPhone 5s. Well worth the $40, Apple really got it right with this one!

    Excellent - buttons work great in this case

    Got this case when I bought the 5S on release day. It's awesome! Handsome leather and a snug fit. Leather smells great and looks great on the phone. I especially like that the buttons work so well in this case. I like that I can feel the click feedback when I press both the volume and power buttons when my phone is in this case. Finally I have a leather case for my iPhone that fits perfectly and looks terrific. Adds almost no bulk and provides just enough grip and slip resistance. I like it so much that I plan to buy another to keep as a backup. Highly recommended. I hope Apple continues to make these same cases for this and future versions of iPhone.

    Really, really nice!

    First of all, this case smells amazing! The fit is very tight but perfect for the 5/5S, the volume and power buttons are covered up but remain just as easy to use. There is a very slight lip over the front of the phone meaning the screen won't be damaged if you put it down face first.

    Just for info, I have a front and rear Zagg protective film on my phone and it makes no difference to the fit.

    I thoroughly recommend the iPhone 5S case.

    NOT slippery. GREAT leather!

    I didn't know what to expect from this case. It being my first true leather case, all I can say is WOW!
    It is not slippery at all- great leather with a mild grip. It has a very snug fit, once it goes on, let it wear in a little till you take it off. Great leather gets even better with time. Im willing to buy another one in a different color too!
    It fits well into jean pockets with out much effort.

    and by the way, it does smell good.

    It Even Smells Good

    I've purchased a lot of cases, each of which have lasted between a few days and a few months. Most of them are either not of high enough quality or don't fit well. This case is above and beyond any other case I've tried. Best $39 I've spent in a long time. You won't be disappointed. Oh, and the leather smells really nice.

    Extremely high quality product

    I had all intentions of not having a case on my phone, but I actually prefer the feel of the phone with this case on it. The phone feels much more solid and durable with the case on it and I expect that I'll be using this case for the duration of my ownership of the phone.

    Best case out

    This is the best case I've ever had for any of my iphones. The phone is still amazingly thin in the case and it feels great in the hand.

    Apple got it right!

    I love this case. I am very picky about cases and have bought several for my iPhone 5. I was never totally happy with any of them. This case is the exception. I loved it from the start. Very well made and feels great to hold. It has a high quality look, which is perfect for the 5s. I will keep this one for the life of the phone. It's expensive, but at least it is made of leather and not the typical plastic that flood the market.

    Great case

    This works great on a iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. I have used many cases and this one feels great in the hand and the inside of the case will protect the back of the iPhone (no scratches).

    A little hard to get off, but that is OK.

    Will not fit in the new IPhone 5s Dock when the case is inserted. Also, does not fit in the Belkin Lightning stand when the case is inserted.

    Excellent fitment, material, and design

    The best leather form-fitting case for the 5s. The slim design preserves the elegant form factor of the iPhone. I have had the case with the new 5s for 2 days and the case works very well. I personally find the black case with the space grey (black and grey) phone combination the most attractive. The monochromatic theme is pleasing to the eye. The case material and quality are outstanding. Highly recommended to those who like form-fitting cases.

    Excellent Case Choice

    I purchased this black leather case for my 5S this morning at the Apple Store, and the fit and finish are terrific. It comes slightly over the front end to protect your screen if you lay the phone face down, and covers the back and sides nicely without making the phone thick. The micro-fiber interior is great, and I feel it will cut down on fine scratches from particulates getting in between the phone and case.

    Looks great but not protective

    This case is so fragile, I need a case for it! -_-

    Nice quality.

    Very nice quality case for your iPhone 5s. I decided to go with the black one on my silver iPhone 5s because the other colors will end up looking dirty over time. It was a good choice! The case feels very nice in the hand and keeps your iPhone feeling thin and light. I've had the case for about a month and it has NOT discolored. I'm not the type of person who drops my phone very often, but I have dropped it once with the case on and it did protect it from breaking. I don't think this case is really designed for drops, so if your'e the type of person who drops your phone a lot, look else where. If you're like me, this case is for you!

    Doesn't work with the 30 pin lightning adapter

    Very nice case that protects the iPhone well. However don't hope on using it with the 30 pin to Lightning adapter since the hole at the bottom of the case is too small to allow a connection with the adapter. It is very tight so removing it every time you need to use the adapter is not really an option. Plus this would damage the case overtime.
    To me this is a huge drawback.
    Apple changed the design for the iPhone 6 case but didn't update the design of the iPhone 5 case.

    Very nice but with one huge flaw

    This case is very nice overall. It fits perfectly, looks very sharp, and feels nice in my hand. The only big problem I have with it is that the cutout for the headphone jack is too small, so several of my audio patch cables will not fully seat. Since the case is leather, modifying the case to open up the hole isn't really an option. I am faced with the prospect of having to search around for an audio cable that is very thin to be able to fit correctly, or switching to another case. I do know however that the "amazon basic" patch cable that I have and 2 other generic cables will not fully seat when this case is being used. This is a huge problem since I use the audio patch cable to listen to music during my daily 2 hours in my car commuting. Its a shame because otherwise this case is perfect.

    Very Pretty

    It is a very presentable and stylish case. Though it gets SUPER dirty! Also it is a little pricy. I got it on sale for about $17, but I think the normal price is way to high. So overall it is a very nice plain case, but it has its faults.
