    Great protection. Will fall apart!!

    • Written by Ivan H from Hollywood

    I’ve gone through two of these cases. Apple has been kind in giving me a replacement on two different occasions for this case due to it falling apart at the seams. The reps at the store were unable to give me a new case, because we both agreed that the third case will probably fall apart as well. I tell people to get the standard leather case ($50) and probably should have stuck with that one as well, instead of being stuck with a mediocre folio that will probably fall apart again. I’ve gone through two of these and I anticipate that the third will have the same fate.

    Dropped phone & cracked screen

    • Written by Sandra P from Astoria

    Do not waste your money. I bought this case about 3 months ago, dropped my phone on the sidewalk and the entire screen cracked.

    Very Pleased. Best Folio that does not add Bulk

    • Written by Peter L from Kanata

    I feel so dumb for taking so long to make the commitment to purchase this case. I kept hesitating about purchasing the folio from Apple from the reviews. I think the only thing people can legitimately can complain about would be the price. I’ve tried three different folios from three different independent manufacturers. They were good but not as perfect as the Apple folio. If you want a folio that does not add the bulk then BUY this case. Everything out there adds weight and bulk to your phone. The case holds enough credit cards and ID to satisfy my needs. I love not having to carry a wallet and a phone. Makes my life so much easier. If you do not want to spend the extra cash I would buy the Nomad case.

    No regrets

    • Written by gail S from melbourne

    Everything is right with this wallet, simple and beautifully designed, closes flat perfectly even with cards and cash, puts phone to sleep when you close the wallet...best of all, unlike my 2 previous $70 wallets, the buttons work easily :D

    beautiful case

    • Written by Donald K from Sandwich

    i think the case is perfect . its very well made , nice leather, fits perfect on the phone. It activates the screen when you open the cover and closes it . The phone screen is safe , no need to buy a screen saver anymore. The case feels good in the hand. when you open it you can hold the phone safe with the hand . yes , its a lot of money but its well made like the Hermes leather products and compare to those prices its a bargain. i hope apple offers more colors soon.

    Very smart looking and beautiful

    • Written by Paulo N from London

    Excellent quality smooth thin leather, beautiful blue tone and very smart nearly luxurious look.
    The flap cover is soft and has 2 tight slots for cards or other small inserts. The cover is magnetic so that the phone goes to sleep when cover is closed, just like the smart iPad covers.
    The flapping cover is not a nuisance unlike I was afraid before buying. It’s soft and easily opened or closed to stay away from operating the phone.
    There’s a tightly frame around to hold the phone inside the folio, same colour with coloured buttons. The back has the Apple logo as a smooth engraving, very sleek.
    Only downside for me is that the volume buttons are covered but this is a very small issue and the buttons can still be pressed from the outside our you want without too much pressure, so all good.
    I can’t stop using it, it’s just so smart and great looking, unlike anything else or the cheap leather folios out there.

    Quality great case.

    • Written by Louis M from Signal Hill

    This is an exact fitting, durable, and high quality leather case that Apple has designed. I’ve had it almost a year for the previous iPhone and besides some scratches, it’s in tact and still great. I’m definitely buying it again for the Max. I highly recommend it. Other “wallet” cases don’t quite feel as nice and look as good. As for the price, I do think it’s a little high, but since it’s lasted and not fallen apart, it’s worht the money.

    Exceptionally poor value and lacking basic functionality

    • Written by Stephen C from London

    Firstly the positives:
    • Fits the iPhone XS Max like a glove
    • Looks stylish
    • Provides storage for a card + cash
    • Offers a degree of protection.
    • Can automatically switch off the screen when closed.

    However, this case must be judged against the cost and at £129 expectations are suitably high. As I see it the main disappointments can be summarised as follows:

    • The case does not provide a desktop stand so that you can view movies etc. without having to hold the phone. Watching content therefore involves bending the case back after which it takes ages to fully close again.
    • The phone does not offer any form of magnetic closure and so takes a long time to close flush.
    • The case does not feel substantial enough to justify the cost and the cover is not rigid.
    • My particular example has a small indentation in the leather next to the Apple Logo.

    In a way, it is easy to try and justify the cost as 10% of the phone outlay to offer Apple approved levels of protection but the reality is that you will find better folio cases for under £20 elsewhere that will offer more protection and features even if they do not look quite as stylish.

    My advice is to look elsewhere, there is absolutely no justification for the price of this item, it does not do anything that cannot be achieved just as well elsewhere at a fraction of the cost.

    Not Impressed, at all.

    • Written by jasmin C from baltimore

    I brought this case thinking I was going to get the best case that was out there. For the price, the quality could've been better. The durability could have been improved. If there is the slightest impact, the phone would be destroyed. I am not happy.
