    Not bad...

    • Written by from Chelmsford

    Really, not bad. It's actually quite a good case. However, you have to really plan if you are going to be using your phone in a dock. For instance, it definitely will not work with the Belkin iPhone dock. Plan on using the case on your phone when only using the lightning cable.
    However, the fit is good and the quality is excellent. The front part of the case extends over the front of the phone ever so slightly to protect the screen if placed face down.
    Oh, yes it is overpriced. But you already knew that right?

    Bought this on launch day with the new iphone 5s.

    As expected the quality is very good and compliments the phone perfectly. However, and only a small however... it is very hard to take off of the phone. Such a snug fit and am concerned I will damage the phone in doing so.

    Best to work the corners!

    Really good product

    • Written by from Bourne

    I bought one of these for my iPhone thinking as it was Apple it would be good quality. I was not disappointed. It fits great, looks good and really does feel nice in your hand.

    I understand where people are coming from, the cut outs are small and if you have any 3rd party accessories then they may not fit, I haven't so it's not a problem for me.

    Also, I agree that it starts to look rough after a few days, I don't know what people expect though, it's coloured leather and being genuine leather it's not going to stay looking brand new. I don't know what people expect Apple to do, breed some super cow with extra tough skin. I kinda like it looking 'distressed'! How long do bright coloured sneakers look brand new for, this thing is held in a grubby hand rubbing in the pocket of coloured jeans etc all day , of course it will affect it.

    The only reason I did not give it 5* is the price.

    Great case - will damage easily though I'm sure

    • Written by from Bingham

    Ordered one of these, (black) to go with my new 5S. Case arrived, and as per other reviews, it fits very very snugly to the phone. So much so, that if I ever want to get it off, it will be tough. However, not sure why I would be wanting to take it off, its a case. I'm not normally one for cases on my phone, I like the aesthetic of the naked iphone, however, I figured that I really should put some kind of protection on it. I wanted a minimal, no fuss look, and so this case appeared ideal. I was concerned about the bulk, but shouldnt have worried, its absolutely fine.

    However, and this is where my initial hesitation about the leather case does hold true. Fine leather marks very easily, particularly when you're taking it in and out of your pocket multiple times per day. I do find myself being more careful when getting it out and putting it away in my pocket - should I have to worry about that when using a phone? There is one, very slight, mark on the back of mine already, obviously where the leather was caught, perhaps by a key, not sure.....Its a shame, but I bought the case knowing the leather would mark, and would test it for ageing, before buying another.

    Ask me in a couple of months if I'm still so keen on it. Although, at the moment, concerns aside, its a great case, and yes, I'd recommend it. Be prepared for it not to stay pristine though.

    Fantastic Cover

    • Written by from Lisburn

    Just purchased new iPhone 5s and this cover to protect it. Fits perfectly on the phone, a little tight at first but leaves you feeling assured it won't be coming off anytime soon. Might be considered pricey but definitely worth the investment. 10/10 for quality. 10/10 for style.

    Good case however...

    • Written by from Derby

    Excellent case great fit. But as others have mentioned it turns a different color. However apple does state on the case this will happen.

    Overall a great product but maybe black is the color to go for.

    Beautiful product

    • Written by from Newcastle

    Beautiful and light case, it is good match with iPhone 5s.
    However, the leather is very easy to get dirty, when this case dirty, it will change colour.
    I bought the red one, I just used this case one month, this case is already changed colour. :)

    Beautiful case

    • Written by from Coventry

    As others have stated the case fits really well, I agree it is slightly difficult to take off but this is good right!?
    It is a bit expensive but I've tried a few cases out there and this is the best overall, it feels great to hold, protects the phone and still looks great....really great!
    I've had no problem using the top on/off, or volume buttons, but can't use the silence button with one hand, not a problem really, the case is sturdy, what do you expect!
    I recommend this highly, you'd be hard pressed to find a better case out there.
