    Used for 9 months everyday, overall very happy

    • Written by from Ridgmont

    It soon showed the dirt making it look old, in addition to this the leather ripped at the corner very early on. However the case has a very soft inside so my phone is still in top condition. The down fall of this product is that it is very expensive to not receive a screen protector, however it has provided unbeatable protection for my phone.

    Beautiful case.

    • Written by from Toledo

    Everything from Apple has a lot of though put into it, so of course it's going to be very high quality and fit in with their own product like magic. Highly recommended for any Apple fanboy, or really anybody that wants a well matching protective case for their iPhone.

    Good protection

    • Written by from Cheras

    I fell in love with this casing when I first saw it, it's pretty attractive and a lil' expensive. Finally decided to get it after awhile,but after using it for 3 days I realized the edge of the case gets dark.
    It's pretty hard to take care of this leather casing I was pretty upset because the casing doesn't look nice and attractive anymore as it's getting darker and darker.

    There was once, I dropped my phone on the road, screen facing downwards on the road. Surprisingly, nothing happened to my phone. No crack and all. Just the edge of my casing has a lil scratch on it, it's quite obvious but it's bearable for sight seeing.
    I think I fell in love with this case again as I will not change any other casings anymore, btw was surprised because I didn't knew this casing has such protection.

    Worth buying afterall! I am having a red one now, planning to get a black one because even if its dirty, it's not obvious.

    Great Case Great Feel But Shows Dirt

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I have the red case for my 5S and have had it on since the day i got my phone its a great case it feels great in the hand its just that it holds and shows anything it touches very easy no matter where you put it its impossible to keep clean and some stuff is harder to get off then others. If you want one to last without having to put up with it being dirty go with the black one.

    Great Case for iPhone (5 or 5S)

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great case for the iPhone 5 or 5S. The cause that the money goes for is worth buying in it self.
    With that being said, the Red stands out and looks great for a while, if you have oily hands or use a lot of lotion I would recommend the black
    Leather case, the lighter Colors show wear on the edges faster and can NOT be cleaned so keep that in mind.
    As an overall review this case is well made and feels good ergonomically. I hope this helps everyone. :-)

    Reasonable case

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    The case is really nice in the hand, especially when you first purchase it. I first purchased the blue case. It's a very nice color and i enjoy it allot. I know that lots of people say that the case can get extremely dirty very easily. With a little dab of water and then wiping it with a cloth can clear some of the dirt on the back. But from what I have right now the case protects, it looks luxurious, and it feels very nice too. The only downside to it is that it CAN get dirty very easily depending on the condition you put it through. The Lock button is also a bit harder to push down with this case too. Everything else is perfectly fine, but it'd probably be more convenient if Apple didn't list this for $40.

    Good case, but does not last

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    I have not been using any cases before because I could not find the one I would not increase the size of the phone so much. The case fit is precise, very snug. The phone feels so good with the case on. It is not bulky at all. I personally do not feel it becoming unconfortably bigger. The case gives extra grip and a solid feeling of the phone being protected from every side. The bottom openings are precisely cut - looks great. The case does not smell at all, not even like a good leather would. Button feel nice, but you need to press them a bit stronger. I owned a black and a brown one. Black look great on white and gold due to contrast, while to my mind it is not as good on black. The brown looks awsome on black. Gives a good feeling of premiumness - like an expensive car. My only concern is that the brown case god dirty and lost it look in a week. Than the color layer started to wear off revealing the much darker brown layer exposed. It looks totally trashy now. I am so disappointed. The case is only 3 weeks old. I am a very careful user, but it just does not last. Though it says leather, it does not feel like a real leather. It totally lost its look, however, not protective qualities. One more thing - brown iphone case and brown ipad case are not the same color, texture and feel at all. I bought two at once to go together and was so surprised to see that the color and texture are not at all the same. If I were to buy again I would only get the black case, after several month it looks just as new. Apple please do something with the color layer on the phone case and use real leather as you say.

    Hit and miss, really...

    • Written by from Toronto

    Before I begin, let me say that I have had experiences with three of these cases (Yellow, Red and Beige).

    In no ways am I being an apologist for Apple, but I really believe that the longevity of this product is case by case (no pun intended). My first case developed a crack within a week, and I returned it. My red case (despite minor discolouration) has been an absolute tank. It's still going strong after almost 4 months. My beige one is only used for special occasions.

    Like with all leather products, scuffs and discolouration will occur. The wear and tear comes with any item you buy.

    By no means is it perfect, but it's one of the best cases offered to compliment the most beautiful phone on the market.

    I like it a lot!

    • Written by from York

    I have always rolled with my iPhone bare as I think it's such a beautiful piece of industrial design. But bought the black leather case when my 5s was new and just got the red one. The black one is great but I'm worried about the red discolouring as others have mentioned.

    One thing I have used on the black case and may try on the red is hestra leather balm.

    Anyway Apple the real thing I wanted to state in the review is make a second cheaper version of this case like the rubber one for the ipad air. This material is a lot more durable and would retain the bright colours much much longer.

    Good but gets a little worn out

    • Written by

    I bought my new gold iPhone 5S and chose to buy the new red case. I knew that it was going to wear out from the aniline leather like the ipad cover. After about a month now the colour still look s great and i only have one little black smudge on it. But the case is really hard to get off your phone and the inside of the case starts to get chaffed around the edges.

    Great case......

    • Written by from Teddington

    It fits snug and makes the phone feel amazing in hand. The leather does not look like much but it almost has slight brush feel to it. A previous reviewer mentioned that it will stain or mark up easily but, I personally think it adds charm to the phone and like all leather products it looks better with age. Ports are a problem that you have to consider. Only real disadvantage is that it is expensive.

    Lovely, yet.... troublesome.

    • Written by from Rowland Heights

    The touch and feel of the iPhone 5s leather case is absolutely fantastic and unique. The soft texture and the beautiful color compliments the iPhone 5s wonderfully; however, there are some downers to this phone case.
    I've had my iPhone 5s and leather case for less than a month now; however, it is starting to look, well... ugly. I don't mind the dark stains from my jeans too much; however, my phone did manage to slip from my hands and smack down on the cement... Not a pretty sight for the phone case. My iPhone 5s case is no longer just darkening, it's also partially torn. Boo.

    Fantastic case with one flaw

    • Written by from Calgary

    I love the way this case looks and fits my new iPhone. The only drawback is the amount of force you need to use to depress the top button. You don't really realize how often you use the top button until you have to give your phone a good solid hand cramp to get the screen to go dark. It looks awesome, though.

    This case is so nice, however it doesn't keep nice for long and I would recommend purchasing some appropriate leather cleaner and protector.

    Brilliant Quality!

    • Written by from Chesterfield

    I bought this case the other day, and immediately loved it however I was a bit worried, reading some of the other reviews that it would wear down. It says on the box 'this material will change after time', so the material is meant to change and wear! I love the materials used and its a great fit.

    Case

    • Written by from Exeter

    This case is a must buy for anyone with the iPhone 5 or 5s but the only thing is if you get any cleaning materials on it by accident it will pull the dye right out of the leather

    iPhone Case

    • Written by from Bethel

    The Apple iPhone case is really something. It feels very soft on your hands. Its fits like a glove on your brand new iPhone. There are some things I feel I should point out. This case (I have the red one) will easily get stained. This means that if you love blue jeans and love placing your nice iPhone in your pocket, odds are its gonna get stained. In my personal opinion, I learned to like the blue stains on it. Some of you might not like that. So, far so good. However, one star was lost. The reason for that is, if you one a pair of bose headphones the way I do, the plug is not going to fit through the headphone jack hole. That little headphone jack hole is only wide enough for the apple headphone jack. Some of you might not care for that as most of you will use the ear pods provided with the purchase of your new iPhone. Just keep in mind that if you do use this case, kiss goodbye to the ideas of other headphones that are not Apple.

    Perfect case with a caveat!

    • Written by from Ogden

    I loved this case, but ultimately after 10 days I returned it. The overall form factor is perfect and the footprint is as small as you'll get with a case. It feels very smooth to the touch, yet extremely durable. The front part of the case (on the screen side) has a nice lip which allows you to set the phone with the screen facing downward allowing only the case to come into contact with the surface, keeping the screen just slightly raised. This "feature," if one could call it that, was my favorite thing about the case.

    The only thing I disliked about the case was it got extremely dirty...yes I know that is what a case is supposed to do, however mine got extremely black (I purchased the red one) just after one days use. Also my headphones (shure e4c) didn't fit correctly due to the small cutout and the lightest force would pull them out.

    One last quibble for me was the price. If the price was $10 cheaper I would have kept it. However I opted to return it and purchase Twelve South's Bookbook for $20 more, giving me more protection and an added wallet function.

    Overall a wonderful case made by Apple, but it was too pricey and the durability was a concern for me. I would recommend it in a heart-beat however!
