    Looks nice but stains very easily

    I got the beige one. I stained it within the first 3 hours of having my new iphone and I am not a generally messy person. The leather takes up stains very quickly and they are impossible to get out.

    In black, it might work better because it hides staines, but I would not get a light color.

    Im returning it and getting a black leather case that holds a credit card at the same time.

    Highly recommended

    I was really not sure wanting to spend 40 on a case but I gave it a shot with anti glare screen protector I ended up spending 60 dollars
    As far as the case is very excellent I've tried plenty of cases this by far is worth the money the way it fits feels looks .., I got the black one It's looks like they spend enough time to figure out the right materials and the design of it around the phone .. Very unique product again I would highly recommend this . Don't waste money on cases that u would through out for 10 or 20 or even 30 . Get this

    Clean and Precise

    I've tried any number of cases, from bulky "military" type cases to super thin plastic shells, and among all of them, this case has the most precise fit and finish. The cut outs are perfectly aligned over the openings, and the "lay on table" edge is just high enough to keep the screen safe while not getting in the way of iOS 7 edge gestures.

    I opted for the black finish, and after two weeks of daily use the finish is holding up well. The subtly textured surface creates just enough friction to keep the phone in place while typing on a table top, and the feel in hand is comfortable and secure.

    Overall I'd rate this as one of the best cases available for the iPhone 5 or 5s. It doesn't offer the extreme drop protection of some cases, but for the average person using their phone in a business environment, this is a very nice solution.

    Good Case

    Good, protective case. My only complaint is that tiny particles of dust and crumbs get into the little gap between the case and phone. I liked how the iPhone 4 bumper covered those gaps to prevent from little crumbs and etc from getting stuck in there. Dust also gets into that little hole where that camera is. I also wish this 5s case was more grippy, especially when you place it on a table so that it doesn't slide.

    If Apple could just make an official bumper case for the iPhone 5/5S, I would be extremely content.

    Make sure you get a good one

    I am about to order my third case. The first one, the leather was separating from the plastic surrounding the opening for the camera and flash. The second one looks like the leather has been creased in several places, making the surface uneven.
    Overall though, I really like the case. I just need to find one that doesn't have a defect.

    Alright case, but still like my Incase Slider better

    I bought a black case the day they were available, thinking I may have found a case I like even more than my Incase slider but that wasn't the case. Here are my complaints about the iPhone leather case that will keep my using my Incase:

    1.) The power button is actually difficult to press with the piece of leather covering it.
    2.) The case is slippery and didn't make the phone feel secure in my hand.
    3.) The corners of the case barely go past the screen, which left me uneasy with placing my phone face down.
    4.) The case doesn't really balance on it's side or standing up when in use. This is maybe a small complaint, but I do actually stand my phone up quite a bit, and the Incase Slider does a really good job of this.

    I think this case is a nice option, but there is no doubt that I enjoy my other case more than this one, so it will be returned.

    Nice but with flaw

    This is a nice leather case, albeit pricey. One major flaw is that with the case, the power button does not have a nice feedback. I think this is a pretty major design flaw on Apple's part.

    Saved me the second day!

    I was/am a minimalist when it comes to my Apple toys. I desired to pick up the black version of this case because it was on sale at a retailer I was visiting. The second day of having this case on my 5s I was getting out of my truck and forgot the phone was on my lap. So the phone aim he'd onto my aggregate cement driveway from about 4 feet. It landed on the corner, usually BAD, but the case took the punch while leaving only a little scratch on the corner of the case. I will be buying this case for my new 6s when I place the order for my new phone. Nice work Apple!

    Manage expectations

    There are a lot of complaints that the case doesn't protect the phone enough. I think we need to manage our expectations... If you're buying a SLIM leather 'case' for your phone, it is immediately obvious that it isn't going to protect your phone much form a drop from waist-height, let's say. If that is the kind of protection you want, I would think it's obvious to go for more cushioned, silicone, thicker cases or sleeves. I purposely bought this one because it was slim and smooth (ie can slide in and out of my pocket, unlike more rubberized styles). There is basically no padding inside the case, but it DOES have that microfibre-like stuff lining the case, which, for me, was the deciding point against some of the other kevlar or hard & thin cases. There were some good looking wooden ones, but there was no lining inside.

    My BIGGEST complaint is that some headphone plugs cannot fully plug into the jack bc the hole in the case is too small. Could just be with my particular headphones, but it is a sticking point for me. Another pair of earbuds slides into the headphone jack no problem.

    Very durable

    The leather case has been on my iphone for 1.5 years and it has held up amazingly well. The leather has not cracked nor has the dye worn off, it still looks great.. Extremely pleased with it.

    The only case you will need.

    This is by far the best case you can own for an iphone 5 or 5s.
    Fits perfectly, dirt and dust doesn't get inside it, the microfiber inside keeps the phone in perfect shape. The leather feels very nice to the touch.
    Perfect fit, perfect feel. I hope apple keeps making cases for future phones.

    Very good, high quality case.

    This is a very high quality case with a luxurious feel. I do advise that you avoid the lighter colours as they get dirty easily. I had the red one before my current black one. I found that the red one was getting dirty, so I went to the apple store and they gave me a new one. No questions asked. I really like this case and it offers good protection.

    I love this case. Don't listen to misinformed ignorant reviewers.

    On the packaging it makes a clear statement that the appearance of the case would change during use. My black case still looks and feels great after four months of use. It is amazing to hold and impresses all of my friends with it's professional looks and amazing feel. It's genuine leather and I couldn't find a better case for an amazing phone.

    Awesome case! Stick with Black.

    The case has a great feel, is durable, and protects the phone. Black never looks dirty. We have the black and the red, and the dye on the Red wears off. Black looks just as good as when I bought it.

    THE Best case for the iphone

    I wanted something slim that didn't add too much bulk to the phone and that felt good in hand. Had this case now for over 3 months and its proving to be my favorite so far. I have no idea how they managed to make something like this out of leather! Have tried a few others but nothing can compare.

    Fits great, feels great, hard to get off though

    I bought the iPhone 5S case as soon as I bought my new iPhone 5S which was about the same time as when it came out. The case fits greatly on to the iPhone 5S and feels really good too, it doesn't at all add to the thickness of the phone. The buttons are easy to press, and the mic and speakers work just fine too. The only problem is that it is really hard to get off, and I haven't really taken it off that much either but still a few times has caused the case to break from where it has holes for the power cable and the silent button. I don't expect such quality from a case of this price, and a product from Apple. Except this one problem, the case is an amazing fit for the iPhone 5S. But I'll only give it two stars because it broke for me.

    Have the same type of case for my IPad Air
    Great feel, fit and looks fantastic
    Worth every penny
