    Love this case!!

    • Written by from Southern Pines

    I bought the blue leather case for my 5s and I couldn't be happier. I've had it a couple of weeks, and no, the leather is not stained. Maybe my hands are cleaner than average :-) It looks like new. I love the way this case feels in the hand, I love the way my phone looks with this case. The lightning connector fits perfectly and all the buttons work beautifully. The only thing that won't work with this case, for me, is my Square Reader. The cutout around that hole is too close. This isn't a huge deal for me but I think down the road Apple might consider making all the openings on this case a bit bigger. Overall, I find this case to be classy and perfect for my phone and me!!

    Great case

    • Written by from Moses Lake

    I bought this case at the same time that I bought my iPhone 5s, and it's the only case that I've used since then. I've seen complaints about the case showing wear, but my case still looks like new. That might be because I have the black one, which maybe doesn't show wear like the other colors. I prefer minimalist cases, and this one fits the bill. The case is light, and it feels great in the hand. At first I thought that I might not like the case because I usually prefer to use a case that leaves the buttons and controls on the side of the phone exposed, but that hasn't bothered me at all. I've also read complaints about the case interfering with the connection of headphones. I use Skullcandy 50/50 earphones, and they fit just fine. If I had to buy a new case today, I would buy this one again in a heartbeat.

    Needs some more work

    • Written by from Fremont

    These cases are great, and look great when they're fresh out of the box,
    after just a few days though they start turning black and there's nothing that can be done about it. I've tried every leather cleaner that I could find but still nothing worked. The Kardashian marriage lasted longer than my case and I really didn't do anything crazy with it, and generally it's just sitting on my desk or in my pocket, but it just sucked up every speck of dirt around and is impossible to clean!

    Apple please fix your formula! maybe coat it with something dirt resistant...or come up with a way to clean them and fill us in on it...40$ for a case that lasts 5 minutes is not the standard that us Apple customers are used to!!!

    * Feels great in the hand.
    * Leather looks great in black.
    * Speaker holes in bottom speak to attention to detail.


    * Really have to press the power button to get it to register.
    * Audio on/off switch is hard to reach.
    * Lightning cable not accessible with docks (I don't use one but if I did I'd be annoyed).
    * Leather does not feel "genuine". It actually sorta feels like a high end plastic.

    Not sure I would recommend it.

    Great product with a major flaw

    • Written by from Chicago

    When I applied the case to my iPhone, it fit like a glove and felt good to hold. No complaints from that end. BUT the major flaw is that the opening for the headphone jack is too small for some third party headphones, including BOSE. I returned the case the next day. Too bad Apple's design of the case systematically precludes the use of some popular headphones.

    Apple probably wants it's consumers to use their phones naked so when they make a case they make it classy. The feeling of the case is amazing, feels very nice in the hand. I don't know what the other reviews are talking about when they say it gets dirty. I have a black one and it looks brand new.

    Beautiful but not useful

    • Written by from Charlotte

    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.

    nice but gets dirty real easily

    • Written by from ROYAL OAK

    Let me start by saying I'm really careful with my phones. I had a 4s for almsot two years and it was in perfect condition. I got a 5S and bought the leather case in beige. Love the color, fits well, snug but not too much so. My beef is that it gets dirty SO easily. I specifically got a lighter color so that i can easily find it in my purse. I take a medication that can sometimes stain things, and even though I picked up my phone a while after I touched my medication it still stained the cover and it won't come out. Really disappointed. I got the cover on September 20 and as of today 10/31 it's got stains all over it that won't come out.

    The Best I've Used

    • Written by from Spring Lake

    I am a purist when it comes to apple hardware so finding a case that doesn't take away from the design is critical for me. Simply put, this case is the perfect blend of form and function. The black leather is holding up very well too and feels solid. It adds grip right from the start and only gets better as it breaks in.

    Love it.

    • Written by from Anoka

    Love the case. Great material. Great feel. Great fit. My iPhone fits snug in the case with no play whatsoever. Sturdy. Only gripe I have is that the opening for 3.5mm headphone jacks is a bit small and won't fit many types of aftermarket headphones.

    Excellent protection but doesnt last

    • Written by from Baltimore

    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.

    I like!

    • Written by from Langley

    Great case, smooth and sleek. It doesn't make your phone more chunky, which some cases do. I like the feel and touch of it too.

    The only con: rather difficult to take off. Everytime I try to, it pushes the power button. However, I won't be taking the case off a lot, so it doesn't really matter.

    Not impressed...

    • Written by from Independence

    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.

    Great case

    • Written by from Bentonville

    This is a very nice case! It fits my 5S really good! It makes the phone look thin and sleek! It is very comfortable and very durable! I've had no problems at all with it. I definitely recommend this case to everyone! I hope they make more products like this in the future

    Great case, works poorly

    • Written by from MANHATTAN BEACH

    Just like most everyone else, I really like the look and feel of this case. It's already saved my spankin new 5S from a drop.

    But the big problem is that the jacks don't fit non-standard Apple straight headphones (I have a rockin' Bose pair that has a bent head) or the Apple power lightning adaptor. Major fail especially on products, like the adaptor, that Apple makes.

    Still worth it though the wear and tear from taking it off and on to use headphones or charge it is starting to show. And boy am I glad about buying a black one since so many are having issues with lighter models.

    The worst case ever!...

    • Written by from Houston

    While Apple does specify that the case will show wear and tear, they do not tell you how early on (8 days). I bought a Red case about 8 days ago and it has not turned half black. I have had an INCASE PRO for about a year now and still looks almost new. So its not the way you use, its just the cover itself which is bad. DO NOT BUY THIS COVER. save yourself that 40 bucks...

    Great Case

    • Written by from Powder Springs

    I have been using this case for two weeks and I love it. Works and fits great. Love the leather feel. Goes on and off easy for me. Can't see any wear on the black leather yet. However, I have cleaned it with a little saddle soap. It is doing a great job at keeping my 5s in great shape. Phone still looks like the day I got it. Bottom line, buy the case. I don't think you will regret it.
