    Exceeded expectations

    There reviews had me put off but I've learned to embrace the hump and I love it. I wanted more battery life and the case delivers. With third party cases I had no interest in having to use micro USB. The few lightning port battery cases out there all had questionable reviews and accounts of the cases breaking from short falls.

    This case looked like a flimsy rubber case online, however it is surprising well built, shock absorbent, and grippy. The grip is great and exactly what I wanted. Does it pick up some lint... Well yeah, because it's gripable! Button presses are solid. I don't care about the aesthetics of the hump and personally the outrage reviews made no sense because a battery case is for a niche market. At any rate, the hump actually created a nicer grip experience buy effectively rounding the back side, which likens the feel to that of the Moto X/G. Much better than the rectangle that is a plain iPhone.

    Thought I'd regret spending $100 on a case. I do not and would recommend to anyone that requires more battery life.

    Good case at first

    When I bought this a few weeks ago it was great, the battery life was fantastic. Now, a few weeks later the battery life is still great however it doesn't detect when it's been plugged in too well. I'll plug it in for charging and every time I move it it will vibrate as if it's been unplugged and plugged in. Now it will just do that randomly without even being moved. I've tried 4 different cables and using my Macbook Pro or a normal PC and it's the same issue.

    It's still great for battery life, but it's just a shame the connections die that quickly, it gets frustrating charging at work and having your desk vibrate every minute or 2 to say "oh look at me!"

    Great accessory for iPhone

    When using my iPhone as a mobile hotspot on and off through the day I'd be lucky to get 6-8 hours worth of battery life. Now, I can travel long distances without the bother of charging it off my laptop, hoping the train has a socket, or by carrying round an extra battery pack for it...

    Fortunately I use Apple headphones anyway, so that isn't a problem, although I will no longer be able to use a separate pair that I have as a backup!

    Not as bad as it looks

    Read all the reviews , and decided to try it on my own. The case feels really great in my hands and the battery works wonder, I had bought the white first but it retain to much dirt, so I returned it and bought the gray one and love it. The hump is not as bad as everyone reports. The headphone jack is a problem and more colors are definitely needed, but all in all a solid product, gets the job done and would recommend it.

    Charging case is awesome!!!������

    I absolutely love this case!! It looks odd at first glance but when you put it in your hand it's amazing. I use my phone a lot and this battery is so good. I have tried mophie and other brands before but they are to big and uncomfortable to hold. I absolutely love my apple case. ����

    Does what it says...

    A nice case, it's a little on the heavy and bulky side, but what do you expect from a case with a battery in it. The main thing is I can easily get through the day now with battery!

    The headphone socket at the bottom means I can no longer use my earphones when listening to music as there's a good 1cm before you reach the phone jack, so bear that in mind.

    The case itself charges pretty quickly, and as some have mentioned in other reviews the phone battery does go down a little with the case battery, but the phone then soon charges back to 100% from the case battery so don't worry about that.

    Great Idea!

    The case works great and it keeps the phone charged. I'm a medium user, so I almost never run down the battery case and start using the iPhone battery. Its and great idea and no switches to be concerned with. It just works!

    However apple, It would be cool if it came in 2 other colors.

    iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case

    I love this battery case! I have had it for about 2 months and haven't been without power ever since. Very durable, as I have dropped my phone many times since I purchased!
    I was a loyal Mophie user until I saw this!

    Only drawback? Colors. I need colors!!

    Disappointment – Good for two months only

    I thought it was great at first. You expect that something you buy for a $100 will last longer than two months and won't brick your phone for hours. I'm writing this on my mac because it is the second night in a row that my phone battery was drained by this thing (while connected to the power) and after heating all day. I hope my phone restarts after this, I've been waiting for 40 minutes.

    In any c a s e – I strongly recommend against buying it.

    This shouldn't happen with product this expensive. I was happy to pay premium for what I thought were apple standards. Now I feel I was ripped off, and the hassle of having my phone bricked on a work day is even worse.

    I love this case

    This is probably one of the best accessories of the iPhone that I've ever owned. I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive about buying one especially reading some of the negative reviews. Finally decided to buy one and it is by far the perfect accessory. It functions brilliantly. Its made of top quality materials and fits my phone like a glove. In fact, I prefer the hump on the back as it just fits perfectly in my palm and gives better grip to the case and phone. Absolutely perfect in every way.

    Is it real Apple's product?

    This is the ugliest case, which whenever I had. I didn't believe that Apple made something like this. It attracts all dust from my pockets and it is hard to clean. I hate that this cover cover my volume and power buttons by rubber. But it fulfills its fundamental function, it keep my iPhone on all day without additional charging.

    totally disappointed

    The case works fine to extend the battery. But unfortunately the soft rubber material is a dust magnetic. every time I take it out of my pocket I have to dust it off. Its beyond annoying. I went back to my mophie juck pack. This is collecting dust in the corner. What a waste of money.

    Best Case I ever had

    This is the best Smart Battery case for the Iphone 6S. I was looking at Mophie, but that uses a different cable to charge the case. The Apple Smart case uses the Lighting Cable to charge. It's just like having the Iphone 6s PLUS battery LIFE!.

    Talk time 25 hours,
    Internet use 18 hours
    Video playback 20 hours

    Pros:
    Rubberized case.
    Feels great in hand.
    Non slip.
    Battery lasts for 2 Days.
    Protects the phone.
    Uses Lightning cable.
    Integrated with IOS.
    Fast charging.

    Cons:
    None

    Notes:
    Battery bump out on phone is smaller than what the photo shows.
    Phone does NOT get hot or warm, as others claim.

    Life Changing!!

    This is an absolute must! I use to have to charge my phone 3 times a day. Now, with this case, the charge lasts all day. I never have to worry about a dead battery. I keep my phone in my pocket most of the time and this case fits right in. If you don't buy it, you are crazy.

    Awesome!

    Honestly I was hesitant to replace my Otterbox Defender Series with a case made by Apple... But once I got it I thought it feels really nice in my hand, and the fact that it integrates with iOS seamlessly and makes my phone last all day and night. I really hope they make this case for the next iPhone, and the next iPhone Plus.

    Works, but it's just not for me

    While the case works very well, and the iOS integration is quite swell, this is just too much of an inconvenience for what is honestly a problem with the iPhone itself. The hump doesn't sit well in my hand, it pretty much doubles the weight of the phone, and adds almost an inch of length at the bottom. The headphone jack doesn't fit any other headphones than the Apple ones, and the jack feels very uncomfortable against my pinky. The bezel around the phone is also a lot thicker than with the normal silicone case. Overall it just makes the phone very bulky and hard to get a proper grip on. A better internal battery would have been preferable, but this is going back to the store.

    Disappointed in performance over time

    For the first 90 days, I could not recommend this product enough and could even justify the premium pricing and lack of features. That being said.. after about 95 days my smart battery case now acts erratically, rarely charges, or just does nothing when plugged in. I can see from other postings that this is not uncommon after a period of time with this product. I normally would not submit a review on an accessory, but this product does not feel like it has the quality most customers have come to expect (and pay for) from Apple. If you are looking to use this case every day, I would recommend researching other products that have been tested to consistently perform over time.

    Smart Battery Case has stopped working

    When the case was working, it worked great. I have not abused it, dropped it, or had it under any harsh conditions. Case has just stopped working. Seems as though Apple has rushed through this one - very disappointed.

    6 stars

    I normally use my devices with no case. This case is the exception to the rule.
    Unlike other charge cases:
    -you never have to turn this case on
    -integrates with iOS automatically
    -charge and sync through the case
    -use lightning cable to charge

    My coworkers went out and bought this, too

    Terrible design

    The design this simply a disaster. I've got the white one and when I put it in my jeans, the blue color is stick on it permanently.
