    Quality but expensive

    • Written by from London

    Good case, has a premium feel, fits very well obviously. Not bulky but does add some bulk to your phone, not much but you definitely know its there. It has a very small lip so offers some but degree of protection to the screen, but it's not for you if you want very good protection, suitable for just everyday scratches and wear and tear. It does have a microfibre internal lining so you won't be damaging your phone taking it in and out. Overall a good case but you are paying over the odds because it's made by Apple. Premium but expensive.

    Great looking but doesn't last

    • Written by from Livingston

    I have now had this case replaced twice. there is a thin metal frame contained within the case. it breaks very easily near to the headphone jack. When it breaks, the phone comes away from the case very easily as it is less tight around the phone. clear design flaw!

    Nice looking but doesn't offer much protection

    • Written by from Liverpool

    I had this case installed on my 5s for around 9 months.


    Nice, sleek and very well fitting. Port openings good size and not had any issues with any apple approved accessories.

    The look of the leather does change over time but I think the worn affect looks good. It keeps dust out and doesn't scratch the finish on the handset.


    The case doesn't offer much in the way of impact protection. It has saved the handset from drops on the sides/corners but I caught the back on the phone on the edge of a desk whilst in my jeans pocket which resulted in a dent in the aluminium casing.

    Great Case BUT...

    • Written by from Castleford

    Love the case, protects the iPhone great and looks impressive BUT the hole for the charging cable is a real let down as its too small. the 30pin adapter wont fit so you have to remove the case (Fits that great that its hard to remove).

    If you are thing about getting this case do not but the 30 pin adapter but get the version with a cable.

    Great product but with serious issues for me. wish I never bought it.

    Although the case looks very nice, It gives very little protection. I dropped my found outside on the pavement whilst walking, and I thought it should be fine. The main screen was fine, however there is a chip on the bottom right hand corner of the phone, that was supposedly meant to be covered by the case. The look of the case is very nice, protection is questionable. I don't recommend. Also, Apple say that the look of the case will wear in time,they're not kidding. It may look nice when you first but the case, make the most of it, it will get A LOT worse.

    Surprisingly impractical But Great Design

    • Written by from London

    Soft Leather and fitting is all great. I've been using this case since the 5s came out.

    2 key Problems I've had that have now made me look for a replacement case:

    1. Popular Bose iphone Headphones that are sold by Apple did not fit the precision drilled hole. I actually shaved plastic off the not cheap headphone jack so it would fit.

    2. Belkin in-car radio transmitter and charger wouldn't charge my phone despite the phone fitting fine. I almost sent the device back given it costs a fair price - took me almost a year to realise that it charges my phone fine if its not in the case!

    >So in summary.. for every-day practical use, with other device inputs, this case can cause problems. And if you think you can easily remove and put this case back on multiple times you will learn how doing so loosens the case and you're left with a less than snug fitting cover that makes the phone feel less slick.

    >POSITIVES: Despite my remarks and low stars I do otherwise like this case. Great slick design with soft luxury leather. If you are considering it - test it first!!

    Dirties easily

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    Nice case with good protection and good feel.
    Does dirty very easily and tends to look tacky at times.
    Not the easiest to clean either.

    Beautifully made , even if more a pink than a red. My problem is , it shows every mark. It looks so grubby now, I have removed it from the phone and replaced it with a polycarbonate cover.

    Takes the beauty away

    • Written by

    I have bought it for my black iPhone 5. I have been using spigen ultra Thin air case. To tell you the truth, first it takes the beauty of iphone away and secondly it does add to the weight compare to my last case.

    Quality and fit is good but it make your iphone look like any other phone.

    Nice Case, Just don't buy a Light Colour

    • Written by from Chichester

    I purchased the Tan Leather case to compliment my new 5S, bit of a mistake, within 2 weeks the case is really grubby, and its nigh on impossible to clean. Light Coloured Leather isn't really suitable for constant handling, I should have known that before I bought it!
    All that aside, it is a nice case and is seemingly well made. Though, lets be honest, £35 is a bit steep, I just got caught up in the moment!

    Great case! BUT.....

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Really like the case, great in black for 5s. However at the same time a purchased a genuine 30pin to lightening adaptor. This along with many car,desk and power batteries will not fit when in the case.
    As the case fits so tight around the charging port the adaptor can't locate all the way, so even the genie adaptors don't fit.The normal charger cable is slim all the way to the cable but adaptors tend to have a plastic surround and that catches the case before its complete connected. The case does feel good as is the best slim case i have had, but Apple's own goal is not making sure it worked with their own adaptors....

    Feels great but mine split within days

    • Written by from Solihull

    It's an attractive case with nice leather and feels really slim BUT mine split within days at the bottom just below the Home Button. I am returning it to Apple for a replacement, as I like the feel of it and will try another again. I hope Apple are honourable and replace it.

    Nice, but dirties easy

    • Written by from Glasgow

    Really nice looking case. Provides good protection to top and bottom as well as the sides. I bought the red one, and my main complaint is that within a month it is already looking worse for wear. The leather dirties really easily, especially at the corners and trying to scrub it off only makes it worse. My advice is to get the black one!

    • Written by from DURHAM

    Good points:

    Easy access to all ports and buttons

    Fits perfectly

    Feels good in the hand

    Prevents slippage

    Protects the phone

    Bad points:

    I ordered the Brown version - after 1 week of normal usage the case is now dirty looking.

    Too expensive

    Nice case but not very practical

    • Written by from Goole

    Lovely case, great quality, good protection for a case of it's kind, HOWEVER, the hole in the case for the headphones and charging port are tiny. The charging port hole seems to refuse any cable I've tried other than the lightning to USB charging cable that came with the 5s. Other Apple cables (30-pin to Lightning adapter) don't fit, car charger cables bought from Apple Store also don't fit....very annoying !
