    Poor Quality

    Love the idea of this case. Looks great, very convenient for most used cards.
    Unfortunately, it started falling apart & ripping in a month. The area around the camera is wrecked & the corners are all very worn.

    Great idea but flawed execution

    • Written by from YEOVIL

    I had the 4S case and so held out for the new case when I got my 5. After a long wait, they finally released this and I bought it pretty soon after.

    At first, I was pretty happy. The case looks good, holds an extra card over the 4S case and even lets you use the camera. However, this comes at a price. The previous case was all leather and so it was able to bend and mould itself to the phone as time went by. This one is built around a plastic shell to hold the phone and make an aperture for the camera. The downside of this is that there's now an additional sharp edge which, after a relatively short time of normal use, resulted in the leather and the plastic separating.

    Add to this that the extra card increases the bulk of the wallet part of the case meaning that things start to get pretty crowded if you try to take even a relatively modest amount of banknotes (#firstworldproblem, I know)

    I still use this as my daily wallet / phone case as I've yet to see anything better out there but I'd have rather had my 4S wallet still and not had a camera aperture than compromise the long term wear and tear of the wallet.
