    Love it but it shattered my phone

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I recently bought the iPhone 5S along with this case. I loved the case at first and loved how slim it was until i dropped my phone 2 feet and it completely shattered. Id you drop your phone a lot, do not get this case.

    The very thin edge snapped when removing the phone

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    I am totally disappointed in the quality of this case. I removed the case from my iPhone 5s and it snapped at the very thin edge near the start button. This has to be a flaw. The case is not worthy of Apple, in my opinion.

    Excellent High Quality Case

    • Written by from Pearland

    I have been using this case (black) for about a month. The fit and finish is classic Apple. The case is quite thin but provides excellent protection and accessibility to ports. The display is protected when placing the phone "screen down." The leather feels great in my hand and improves my grip on the phone considerably. I have never liked putting a case on my iPhone because I feel that the case detracts from the phone, but they are necessary if you want to keep your phone in good shape. This is the first case that I am proud to place on my phone. I highly recommend this case.

    What I was looking for

    • Written by from Springfield

    I don't typically write reviews but I really like this case. I was having difficulty finding a case I was happy with. I wanted slim but some level of protection. I was also hesitant about getting a leather case - keeping it clean, etc. I've come to really love this case and feel I got my $40 worth. It feels very slim providing minimal additional bulk yet provides some protection if it gets dropped. It also looks great and feels really great in your hand. I didn't consider that in the past. I think this product lives up to the Apple brand. Beautiful, sleek and practical. A pleasure to look at hold, and use.

    I just got the (PRODUCT) RED case in the mail today, and it couldn't look better on my iPhone 5s! 'Tis the best iPhone case I've ever had. The buttons all line-up great, and it feels nice to boot!

    Should you buy it...?

    This case is the best iPhone case I have ever owned.

    • Written by from Northampton

    I have never use the case before this one, because they all were horrible.
    I highly recommend this case to people who don't like a bulky case, but just like moderate protection for their phone.
    The black case was the best choice for me because I don't like how the other colors get dirty.

    apple accessories only

    • Written by from Chicago

    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.

    Would've been nice but the leather rubs off!

    • Written by from Edmond

    When i got my iphone 5s I got this case to go along with it and i was very satisfied with it but only after 3 days of around the house use the leather started to rub off and show a completely different shade of blue! Im disappointed because if it werent for that it would've been the perfect case but despite the issue apple support was apple to provide a different replacement case for me.

    Amazing Case Worth The Price!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Just bought this case and its amazing, I recently upgraded to the 5S from the 5 and I have gone through many cases. Otterbox,Speck & Etc. This is by far the most slimmest case I have had and the same time the most protective.

    Only thing is these cases do get stained easily so i picked up black which is perfect.!

    Its a hefty price but its quality and will last a long time!

    Pretty good, but not perfect.

    • Written by from Groveland

    The case has an awesome fit and is actually somewhat difficult to remove. It feels durable, but I don't know how well it would survive being off and on if you tried to swap colors. The case has an awesome almost soft as skin feel when holding it. I have the case in red, but the front lip that raises the phone seems to be discoloring quite easy. Overall I think it is great, but I think there is always room for improvement with things.

    Product description is inconsistent "Precision made. Beautifully crafted."

    • Written by from Chicago

    The product description states that the case is Precision made. This is incorrect as the Apple issued Lightning to 30 pin adapter will not work with this case. I believe Apple missed this. It would have been helpful to know before purchasing this case.

    It feels utterly fantastic!

    • Written by from Langley

    Confession - I own A LOT of cases. And they all cost quite a bit less than this one. But without a doubt, my iPhone has never felt better in my hands. The leather is simply superb. It feels exactly like the gorgeous steering wheel on my new BMW. And the outer edges of the case don't wrap around the front of the iPhone to obscure the delightful view. I'll admit that I was swayed by the comments about colours looking dirty and ended up with the black. But honestly, this is so head-and-shoulders above anything else in my collection that I'm going to buy a couple of other colours and switch around. My advice - do not be put off by the price. Buy it and try it for a week or two. I can't imagine you won't LOVE it but just in case, you've always got Apple's return policy to back you up.

    Best iPhone Case I've Used

    • Written by from Memphis

    This really is the best iPhone case I've used since I bought an iPhone 4 and I've tried quite a few cases. The fit and finish of it is without match and the feel in hand is very nice and makes it slightly grippier and more substantial than the iPhone itself. It also doesn't have any tacky logos and just shows a very subtle apple indentation where it normally is on the iPhone itself. Overall it looks very clean and sleek. I've finally found an iPhone case I don't want to take off!

    Slimmest Case, Highest Quality

    • Written by from Wellington

    I was looking for the most minimalist case I could find and this is definitely it. It is almost (almost) like not even having a case on your phone.

    The other reviewers are all right that the leather feels excellent and the fit is as snug and as good as it gets. It is difficult to take the case on and off, but this is the kind of case you leave on all the time.

    This case is for you if you want:
    - The most minimalist case you can get
    - A bumper-like lip around the front so when you set it screen-side down the screen does not touch the table surface
    - A quality feel
    - Protection from scratches or scuffs

    This case is NOT for you if you want:
    - A case you can easily remove all the time
    - A case that offers reasonable drop protection (remember that no case actually offers drop protection, but some out there claim to be designed for a little impact)

    I bought it in black because I was worried the lighter colors would show dirt over time (like all leather does).

    Best of the Apple leather cases.

    • Written by from Belleair

    I have ordered the black, brown, blue and yellow leather iPhone cases from Apple. Without a doubt, black is the best color due to its ability to hide wear and soiling. I have had the black case on my iPhone 5s for a little over two weeks, and it still looks like new (both the phone and the case). The colored cases look horrible after only a few days of handling. I think someone online said they felt like they needed a case for their red leather case, and I agree. Apple didn't think through the colors very well (yellow isn't yellow, and the blue is muddy compared to online photos). The aniline leather does wear, but the colored cases look worn and dirty after only a couple of days – defeating the purpose of a colored case.

    Great Case Lacking Docking Ability

    • Written by from Washington

    I love the case, it's essentially form fitting and looks great, that's why I bought it. It should be a 5 star case and I would give it that rating but it does not event connect with Apple's own dock! I think it's crazy that some cheaper cases fit without a problem and the case designed by Apple and adorning it's very own logo does not. I use a dock to charge at night / to listen to music and I'm very disappointed that I have to take the this case off two do so. I still have a week left to return it, because knowing my luck Apple will release a more dock friendly case in a few months....

    Great Fit--but looks awful!

    • Written by from groveland

    I am a compulsive case shopper so I have had many cases for my iphone 5. I was so excited to purchase this product because I figured it would fit much better due to the fact Apple produced it. That, at least I was right about. I love the way it fits!

    The problem is how well the leather looks after some use. I purchased the red case and within days it looked old and grungy. All the oils from your hands leave black marks on the edges and sides and all over the back where you would typically hold the phone.

    I know its supposed to look better with age, but I am guessing it will just look like I should buy a new case! Maybe the black one holds up better.

    Very Dissappointed!

    • Written by from Amagansett

    The quality of the case is ok but not worth $39. The biggest problem is that you cannot use an Apple adapter to charge the phone when this case is on the phone! The adapter does not fit in far enough to connect and charge the phone without taking the case off--each time you want to charge. Very poor design by Apple who created the adapter AND this case which don't work together.
