    Not worth the money

    • Written by from LIVERPOOL

    I bought this case six months ago. I chose the black option. The case looked good for about two weeks then as the leather softens it starts to look shabby. To add insult to injury, I have dropped my phone once with this case and it cracked the front screen. £35 is a lot to spend on a phone case and I expected more.

    The only positive is that I went to my local Apple store and they gave me store credit for the amount I had paid. This allowed me to purchase a different case which had much better reviews.

    To summarise, a poor product with great customer care from Apple.

    Expensive and broke within weeks

    • Written by from Watford

    Nice sleep feel, it feels as though you're handling the phone rather than a thick slug of case. However, it is very expensive and to compound the issue, the bit next to the headphone socket has seemingly fallen away without me even noticing. Only had it a few weeks. Not impressed.

    Feels nice but is easily scuffed

    • Written by from MOLLYMOOK BEACH

    Have only had it for 3 weeks and my pocket scuffs the leather leaving bad marks all over it, mainly on the corner

    Not worth the price

    • Written by from High wycombe

    Case does what it says on the tin. But it gets dirty very quickly and any attempt to clean just takes the colour off.

    Not worth this price at all. You can get much better cases for half the price.

    Gets so dirty

    • Written by from Fareham

    Good quality feel, but gets so dirty. Thought it might just be me until I bumped into someone with exactly the same issue. Disappointing

    Good idea but poor product

    • Written by from Penryn

    I bought this expensive case with my iphone 5s as I wanted a good quality case for it. Both me and my partner bought one each so I have seen that the product quality does vary. My partners one fits the phone well and the buttons are easy to access. Unfortunately my case is extremely difficult to put on and off and I struggle to press the buttons around the side.

    Although we both have different functionality from the case, both cases (after a week or so) started to look really grubby and not as at all the standard you would expect from apple. The colour has really faded.

    Overall, the product feels nice to hold but it's pot luck as to how functional you will find it and they will start to look old and worn very quickly if you go for a colour other than black. I will definitely be changing the cover.

    Terrible Flaw

    • Written by from London

    Bought one for me and the missus.


    1) does not fit into any docks. Case has to be removed. If you have to do this several times a day, it is VERY annoying.

    We have an old iPhone 4s charger in the house which has the lightning adapter on it. This also doesn't work with the case. UGH!

    2) Because of the flush fit, it is impossible to remove the case without creasing the leather and leaving a permanent mark on it.

    Been using apple products for 15 years and been very happy with them until now.

    Don't buy. Disappointing.

    • Written by from Poole

    At first I loved this case, best one I've had for a long time.
    However after a little less than two weeks the case is practically ruined! The leather wears and gets dirty extremely quickly. I'd recommend this case, but don't get a coloured one. Unless that dirty leather hipster look is for you!

    PS. Don't buy this case if you plan on taking it off anytime soon, once its on the phone it is very difficult to remove!

    Short Life

    • Written by from Camberwell

    I've not had the tan case for long and it's already getting dirty really easily - it seems the leather absorbs all dirt! Perhaps best to protect the leather with something. Rather frustrating having paid so much and after 1 month, its nearly ruined!

    Nice look and feel, bad longevity

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    This case looks and feels like it should for the premium it costs.

    However, this is where the good ends. I've had it on since the first UK internet orders were delivered, very light use, moves from a pocket to desk and is already showing signs of wear. Patina doesn't really cover it, it's just prematurely wearing. I don't think it'll last a matter of months, certainly not anywhere near the life of the phone.

    shame it picks up marks so easily

    • Written by from kingsbury

    lovely case purchased for my wife, looks really nice on the white phone. Be aware though and in fairness it's noted on the small print on the packaging that the leather will pick up colour from jeans etc which does really spoil the look, it would have been a good idea for the leather to be sealed with a coat of scotch guard or water proofer to stop this happening.

    Due to this only giving it 2 stars, but 5 stars for the black one.

    Got it on Friday. Fits well round the phone, but after only 3 days of carrying it in my pocket the case is scuffed on all the edges and looks very used now.

    Would rather have kept my money, my brand new 5S looks like it's at least a year old now.

    Works but gets dirty SO quickly

    • Written by from Salford

    The case works well at protection and fits the iphone fine, unfortunately the product RED version just attracts dirt like anything, mine is only a week old and already this is becoming a noticeable problem. I'm pretty surprised the item looks so bad after such a short amount of usage. Disappointing.

    Limits function

    • Written by from Warrington

    Bought this case for my new phone great quality snug fit however.....

    If you need to use the pin adapter for charging / docking with speaks the case does not allow connection. Some headphone jacks also do not fit with the case on.

    Sadly, I will be returning mine as my in car charger / headphones / very expensive Apple pin adapter mean I need to remove the case.

    Expected design better of Apple.
