    Third party headphones

    • Written by from Georgetown

    I've never been a fan of ear buds since they are prone to fall out and because the wires are so easily tangled. So, I've always preferred using standard headband style headsets. Unfortunately, the hole for the headphone jack on this case is so small that the plug on my headphones won't fit. I had to remove the case and buy a third party version with a bigger opening for the jack.

    Fades very easily

    • Written by from Asheboro

    This is one of the best fitting cases for the iPhone 5s. Yes. It feels amazing in your hand the leather is super soft which I love, but I also bought it bc it's pretty, which only lasted...not even 2 days. I got the blue color and it already looks dull n a bit dirty I keep it in pocket inside my purse all by its self just to avoid this exact thing I don't like a dirty case. the type of leather it's made of its like a dust magnet. So disappointed :( I loved the case but its pretty color didn't last. This case will only be best in color black. I will be returning it tomorrow. Not worth $40

    Too delicate for everyday use. Not recommended.

    • Written by from Padova

    I bought the cover in the beige color approx. 3 weeks ago. Looked amazing, nice finishing, perfect fitting. After a couple of days the color had already started wearing off, as of today, it looks like a 2 year old cover. It is too delicate for everyday use, can't really recommend it.

    The corners of my phone continuously pop out of it. I love the look of the case but not worth $40.

    Great until it cracks

    • Written by from Seattle

    I have had the case for a little over a month and have been delighted with it until it cracked at the thin part by the lightning pin port. This case has been treated gently, it is a shame that it lacks durability.

    Collects Dirt, Abrasions, Looks Nasty After Only 1 Month

    • Written by from Riverside

    Yuck. My least favorite phone case ever. Cannot sanitize. Leather case is far too easily damaged by scratches and abrasions. Collects dirt and everything else. Buttons difficult to push. Color not as advertised. Costs too much for all these issues...it's just a phone case, not something I should feel like I need to avoid because of germs. In fact, I shouldn't even have to think about it for $40. Disappointed in this purchase on a daily basis.

    I really like this case. It feels great in the hand and is really slim for a full protection case. However, it seems that every color (except Black) suffers from color fading and in relatively short time. I have owned my Product RED case for less than a month and it is already showing extreme wear on the edges of the case. It looks horrible. I take care of my devices and the cases that protect them. I would purchase another RED only it it would last at least several months before it looked worn and used. Stay away from the lighter colors.

    Waste of $39 for a Apple Product

    • Written by from Fairbanks

    Because this case is made by Apple itself I expected a very nice high quality product! I received it the mail last Friday and just put it on with excitement, I got it in the color beige because I have the iPad Air case also in beige and I was happy to see how well It was holding up so I expected the same from the phone case! NOT THE CASE AT ALL! This case is now horriblely disgusting and worn down, and I only keep it in my purse and back pocket. 2 very safe places that shouldn't cause any wear, and this phone case is literly falling apart the sides have started to peel up. This ruins everything good about the case for me. And to see it have 4 stars truly disgusts me. They should of only produced to this case in black. Because then this wear would not be as noticeable. I am very VERY Disappointed in Apple. I expect better from them. I guess now its time to call for a refund.

    Terrible Case

    • Written by from Madison

    I loved the look and feel of the case in the store, but three weeks after purchasing, the top edge of the case above the camera is already completely torn - the edges are showing extreme wear and the case itself looks incredibly dirty. Unless you want to keep re-buying cases, I do not recommend this product.

    Fits the phone prefect

    • Written by from Dayton

    I bought the yellow one, and that was my only mistake. I keep my phone in my pocket and the yellow color looks horrible now. Gets dirty really fast and can't clean it. Tried soap and water and a Mr. Clean Magic eraser. I would give it 5 stars if I got say the black one. Like I said fits the phone perfectly but the colored ones are a mistake!

    Bad Choice of Case

    • Written by from SHELBY TOWNSHIP

    I purchased this in Red. Very bad decision. Within a week, it looks awful even though I take great care of my devices. It is turning a 'dirty' look very quick. While the case it constructed very well, it should only be offered in black. Any thing else is a waste of $40, which I quickly discovered.

    Very Disappointed

    • Written by from Salina

    This case is awful. I have had the blue case for 4 months & the appearance is horrible. The leather is many different colors, and the corners have worn. It gets dirty & is not easy to clean. Don't waste your money!

    I am returning this case

    • Written by from Dallas

    I was excited to get my new 5S along with what I believe to be Apples first case. Unfortunately I am extremely disappointed with the protection quality. I purchased my iPhone 5S and the case in black a week ago and have not removed the case since. Yesterday I dropped my phone from about knee height and the phone itself actually popped out of the case and cracked the screen on impact. I immediately went to a an Apple Store and I was told they could not do anything and that the case does not guarantee that the screen would not crack which I think is understandable. I don't think any case can guarantee that. But the phone POPPING OUT of the case? I don't think that is acceptable from an Apple product specifically designed for my phone. Based on the fall I also don't think the screen would have cracked had the phone itself stayed in the case. Sure the case looks and feels nice but I was expecting a bit more protection than aesthetics. I will be returning this case and returning to the Incase Slider Case.

    Don't buy unless you hate your iPhone

    • Written by from London

    I bought this case when I bought my iPhone on release day. Initially when it came it felt nice, but when the phone arrived I was hugely disappointed. For starters, the phone doesn't quite stay in place, the corners tend to pop up above the spot they are supposed to be. I'm not really one for dropping my $1000 phone but it happens, and when it does those corners get owned. You also have to practically warp the case and phone to get it off if you want to use any decent headphones. Apple recommended I buy this and the iPhone 5s charging dock and I did, but the phone won't actually for on the dock with the case on. For the $40 this costs you could get a much more functional case, but if you only care about maintaining the sleek apple look this is for you.

    New phone please

    • Written by from georgetown

    I purchased my iPhone 5S, and the black leather case. I have had the case on since day one and never have taken it off. I dropped it the other day and it shattered the entire phone. The security of your phone in this case is horrible. The quality and feel is excellent. I will not be buying this case again. The purpose of the case is to protect it, not break it. Very disappointed in this product.

    Good case but...

    • Written by from Henderson

    This is a good case with a quality build and snug fit but it is incompatible with the lightning adapter. Also, the headphone opening does not work with many headphone jacks and makes this reminiscent of the original iPhone's recessed input. While this may seem minor to many new iPhone owners, it is a big irritation to many who have had iPhones prior to the 5s

    A waste of money!

    • Written by from HAUPPAUGE

    Purchased five of these cases for five new gold iPhone 5s' in October 2013 for their protection. This iPhone case is an example of form over function. The case complements the iPhone's slimness. However the case provides no effective protection for accidental drops and is not durable. One phone was dropped on its edge while getting out of a car and the glass shattered thereby necessitating the purchase of a new replacement phone. The case does not have enough cushion or bulk to absorb the impact of even short drops. In addition the cases are not durable. Less than a month after purchase three of the cases have a ripped/broken edge by the opening of the silent/ring button opening. For $39.00 there are a lot better cases on the market. I've never been so disappointed by an Apple product!

    WARNING! Great Case but..

    • Written by from Highland Heights

    I purchased this case on line - I love how it fit the phone, the feel, etc. It is a perfect accessory in line with Apple quality. BUT.... I had to return it because I could not use the lightning adapter on docking accessories that I had purchased for my older iPhone. The bottom of the case is maybe just a millimeter off which prohibits the appropriate connection. I thought I would just remove the case to dock it - but it is not easy to get the case off once it is on (which by itself is a benefit for the case.) If Apple ever changes this, I would repurchase this product at once.

    If anyone purchased this kind of case and didn't have the problem I have, please let me know. Maybe it was just the particular case I purchased that was the problem.
