    I love Apple and will blindly follow them where ever they lead me.

    • Written by from Enfield

    I'd buy a case made out of old newspapers if it had Jonny Ive's seal of approval.

    More seriously, its a very nice case. I don't have any issues with the whole sizes and have a black version so can't complain about grubbiness. Would be nice if it cost less.

    Read This Review

    • Written by from Reading

    I wanted to wait until my first drop to write a review and let me set the scene, I was cycling in Spain on Sprocket 3 Gear 7, the fastest a bike could go. I heard my phone drop out my pocket and knew the potential danger of a broken phone was very high. When I ran off my bike to pick up the phone it was untouched, like I had just taken it out of my pocket and all thanks to this case. I have an iPhone 5 and the fall would have shattered it to pieces, if it wasn't for this case protecting it.

    The black leather case for my iPhone 5 fits amazingly, no loose parts and feels firm, it feels great in the hand and the leather is a delight to touch. All the buttons are easily pressed and there's no difficulty navigating the hardware, don't listen to people's reviews saying the lock button is hard to press as many iPhone 5 models had faulty power buttons and it may just be because of that, I find that the case makes buttons incredibly easy to press. As I use only Apple products for my iPhone, I have no problems charging or listening to music, but the holes only fit for Apple hardware and anything the same size or a fraction of a millimetre larger, so if you're a fan of car accessories it may not be for you.

    Overall this case has been godly to me. The soft leather acts as a cushion and absorbs energy from hitting the ground and makes it bounce, you would think a leather case has beauty and no brains, but it has both. Plastic cases are nothing compared. The leather adds second to no thickness and adds a better more secure feel to the iPhone, compared to other leather cases which tend to bulk more than anything. The case is great and I advise buying one, it'll look great on black and white models, a problem is that it conceals most of the phones design to compliment the cases, so if you're a fan of your gold plated 5s, you'll have to sacrifice the gold back plate being shown off.

    To conclude, my phone is like new after a 20mph drop on a concrete path, with only a little puncture in the leather which isn't even noticeable. You don't notice wear and tear on black leather which is handy as I get picky with that stuff. Overall the pros are great protection, grey style, great feel, great look, great fit. If you are worrying that you are sacrificing protection for looks, you're not (from my experience) and the speaker holes are precision drilled, no sound lost in or out. Cons are it can get dirty easy like normal leather if not treated and charging/auxiliary (headphone) ports are fitted for Apple accessories in mind only; buy the black case, no other, as the bright cases are notorious for showing dirt very easily.

    Simply the best!

    • Written by from Espoo

    Simply the best cover I've had. And i've tried few. All of them have the same flaw, the case is not firm enough. All other cases make the phone feel cheap and like it needs some lubricate to not "squeel". Not this! This is excellent. It's like the cover and the iphone is one piece!

    Good Case

    • Written by from Whitchurch

    In my opinion this case is great. I've had it since early December and it still looks and feels good. That is with everyday use. It protects my phone well and fits securely.
    I rate this case highly, but probably in Black because it doesn't show the dirt.

    Fantastic!!!

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    I was really apprehensive about ordering this case after reading the reviews - especially those where the buyers had difficulty charging the phone with the case o since the charger plug wouldn't fit into the phone. I'm not sure if this was a problem in the past which has now been rectified, or whether it's due to the odd faulty case, but my case is fine and I managed to plug the charger into the phone no problem (I used the normal charger with the lead that comes with the iPhone). So if you're worried about the charger not fitting, don't - I had no problem with mine.

    Some reviewers also pointed out that the lighter colours get dirty very quickly. I'd wanted to order one of the lighter ones and reading those reviews made me change my mind, so I ordered a black one instead. It looks lovely with my Silver iPhone 5s. It's real leather, fits better than any other case I've seen and looks very smart; it's pricey but IMHO worth it. So, all-in-all, thumbs up to the black-coloured case :-)

    Expensive.. Maybe but so was my phone!

    • Written by from Westcliff on Sea

    After seeing a friends phone with the red case I wanted one. It's a real quality look for a classy phone. As much as I liked the weathered look of the coloured ones I like a black case. Hopefully there will be some weathering with the black case. The other bonus my rhino screen works nicely with this case. A happy customer

    Unjustified complaints

    • Written by from Wolverhampton

    First of all I cannot comment on the durability of the case as I've only had it a week. But in in terms of fit and finish it is superb, I was amazed to read so many reviews saying "the leather is too thin". Just think about it for a second, if the leather was any thicker it would add bulk then the complaints would be that it ruins the slim form factor of the iPhone 5/5S. The next complaint that I read a lot is "cannot fit my chav brand headphones in the opening at the bottom of the case". Just look at the diameter of the hole in relation to the thickness of the case. If the hole was bigger you would take up the case thickness and end up with a cut-out opening. I also believe that this is Apple's way of saying they don't want you walking around looking like a wanna be rapper and using their phone. And besides most of the time the cans are not on your ears they're round your neck.

    One thing I love is that the cut-out for the camera lens does not reveal the colour change in the phone i.e. the slate, white or gold colour of the iPhone. So many cases have an oversized lens cut-out that you see the strip between the black or white plastic and the metal iPhone colour.

    After 3 months

    • Written by from Derby

    After reading some of the critical remarks of the coloured versions I chose the Black.

    It renders the phone a little less conspicuous - not a bad thing!

    So far now sign of wear and the perfect fit and quality feel make the price a distant memory.

    Highly recommend.

    Fantastic quality case

    • Written by from Middelfart

    One of the nicest cases I have owned. Fits perfect and it is very stylish.
    Read a lot of negative comments about this case, but decided none the less to buy one, first for my wifes work phone, because the company case was a cheap ugly looking plastic case. After seeing it in real life I decided to buy one for myself as well.
    Have now had them for more than a month in red and beige and both still look like new, BUT it is essential that you treat them well with leather care before using them. It seems like they have not been pre-treated, because they almost behave as a sponge, when treated, why they of course will look bad from finger prints etc. after a short time if not pre-treated.
    Only problem is, that a lot of headsets will not fit in the precut hole (apples own headset fits fine though) and the same goes for docking stations, but that goes for almost all cases.

    A highly recommended accessory - but only if treated with some kind of leather care.

    Leather iPhone 5s case.

    • Written by from LEEDS

    I wish Apple had released something like this for the iPhone 5. Purchased this for the iPhone 5s. It fits snugly. The ports are accessible and rocker switch and power button are responsive. It's an expensive case but all taken into account as good purchase.

    The most incredible experience of my life

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    I have been literally crying for hours with deep emotion after coming to the conclusion this case is the most beautifully crafted leather outfit I have ever slipped on. It feels incredible to the touch and all the holes are there perfectly lined up and tantalisingly peeking out at me. The case is apologetically not plastic and words can't describe how I feel when I reach into my pocket on a wet dark night. Adding up all my invoices for all my other iPhone cases that I have bought since the original iPhone launch back in 2006 has come to a total of £7547.89p. Thank you Apple with all my heart for producing a perfect black leather case for much cheaper than that. You can't grumble at a £35 bargain. I recommend this case to anyone in the world. Even if you don't own an iPhone simply sell your old handset and buy an iPhone first. Then visit your local Apple store and buy this case, you will not be disappointed.

    got the black one on launch day, has stood up well so far and being black it hasn't suffered from any staining or colour transfer from jeans etc like my wife's brown version.

    5s leather case, yellow colour

    • Written by from Littlehampton

    Excellent product, worth the money and got mine in the yellow colour. Perfect fit as you can expect no corners cut on the perfection of a apple product. We'll happy with 5s and in its new case. Feels good to hold and works with the glass type screen protectors. Some feed back says these get dirty, yet to see it but as it's leather do take this into account. If I had to rate out of 10 I would give this a 9 purely on the cost of the case could have been set a little lower in my opinion. Lots of other products on the market but if you like the phone you will like this case.

    Perfect Case

    • Written by from Uxbridge

    A great case for the 5 or 5s. Has a premium feel to it and does not increase the size of the phone by that much. The fit is perfect and for me all of the buttons work fine. The power button does need a firm push, however I prefer this. The other cutouts for headphones, charging and speakers are all spot on. All in all a great product, however I would expect it to be perfect at this price. As always you pay for what you get ..... why buy an expensive handset and cover it with a £2 gel case from ebay :)
