    An Over-Priced Waste Of Time

    Save yourself the headache, time and money and get a different product.

    I rarely take time to write reviews but I just can't bear the thought of another customer having to waste $70+ on this product.

    I bought this case when the iPhone 8 came out and it broke within the first few days. The seam on the sleeve that holds the credit cards popped open and unraveled.

    I wrote the folks at 12 South and requested a replacement case. After going through the frustrating exchange process, I received a replacement case.

    The replacement wasn't any better...

    Within weeks, the cheap, "leather" band that goes around the perimeter of the phone "shell" broke. It broke next to the power button which also revealed the shoddy craftsmanship below. In an attempt to avoid yet another frustrating exchange process, I attempted to re-attach the band but whenever I do, it just breaks in a different location.

    And then, a few months later, the seam on the sleeve that holds the credit cards popped open and unraveled - just like the first one I bought.

    I made the mistake of assuming that the price was a mark of quality.

    I'm now going to try the Dreem or the Lupa wallet cases instead. Though the reviews on those cases seem to express similar problems, at least the price isn't deceptive.

    It’s pretty good

    The only thing I wish it had was a clasp to keep it closed. It’s very nice looking and high quality. I will say it gets bulky fast though so having a strap that would keep it closed would have been nice. Overall I am satisfied enough as no one else really offers something of similar quality with the clasp.

    bad audio

    for some reason, as long as my iphone 7 is in the case, people on the other side of the line have troubles hearing me, as soon as i take my phone out, they hear me perfectly...
    so, a very expensive case and no use at all!!!!

    Nice looking - but it muffles voice

    Great looking case, and card wallet, but people on the other line always complain they cannot hear me properly - with muffled and faded voice. When I take the phone out (a task in itself) the phone is fine.
    Looks great, but will be finding another case people can hear me a bit better, which is a shame, as it looks fantastic.

    Great Case

    I love this case have used it for over 6 months and no issues. The pockets are great for holding all my commuter passes. It would also be better if it had a removable wrist strap.

    Card holder ripped within a month and a half

    I'll be asking for a replacement as the card holder section ripped out after a month and a half of easy use.

    Bulky and no volume access

    The wallet case is fine, it looks great, the brown color is rich and the leather quality is good.
    The small leather strip around the sides of the phone is not always glued perfectly, I got picky at the Apple Store.
    Sadly, it is too bulky on a 7+ to keep in your pocket and sit down.
    The worse is that you cannot access the volume buttons when closed or in your pocket, I actually cut out a part of the spine on mine.

    Great look and feel but not perfect

    This is one of the nicest looking wallet cases I have ever bought with great rich colour in the leather and the iPhone fits well into the case but it doesn't provide all round protection as the bottom of the phone is left fully exposed. The quality of the leather that surrounds the plastic case insert for the iPhone is not very good as it has already begun to seperate slightly from the plastic (the leather is glued onto the plastic). Overall though the case is very nice looking and practical.
