    Looks great but gets dirty very fast.

    • Written by from Maspeth

    I bought brown cover for my white iPhone 5s. It covers it very well and tight, when lay phone down on its face it doesn't touch the surface. The only and huge minus is how fast it gets dirty. I had to throw it away after a bit more than 2 months. I would say this cover and color it is great for someone who changes covers very often and the price does not matter.

    AUX hole is not cut right

    • Written by from Livermore

    At first when I bought the case I noticed that the AUX and speaker holes did not align right but I didn't care so much. But after awhile I got more and more annoyed by it. I am now frustrated with my purchase.

    What's all the whining about?

    • Written by from Sebastopol

    I love the brown leather case I bought when the 5s came out nearly a year ago. Sure it's aged. It has the look of a well-worn leather wallet or saddle. Very masculine! I love that. And the case protects the phone perfectly. I like it so much that I just bought another one as backup after reading the negative reviews here. I didn't want Apple to discontinue it and leave me without one. I get compliments on it all the time.

    Looks good but not for protection.

    • Written by from HIGH POINT

    My phone just shattered with this case on. I had to pay $270 to get a new phone:(. Next time going with protection not looks.

    So disappointed

    • Written by from medellin

    I feel very sad because I bought the Brown Case, and in less than two weeks and changed his appearance is very ugly and unpleasant. It is the first time I feel disillusioned with some of the Apple store.

    It's alright

    • Written by from Fair Oaks

    The case is alright. It was hard to remove, now it is uneven. The phone comes out of it.

    Not good

    • Written by from Porto Alegre

    I bought this case and in 1 week it was completely wasted and dirty, and I was really taking care of it, putting only in my pocket and inside my bag really carefully. So disappointed... would never expect that for an apple product

    These cases are useless, do not buy

    • Written by from Carlingford

    These cases mark so easily, i had a brand new red one that was sparkling when i first bought it, after about a week of use it began to mark and now the edges are black and it is barely recognisable of its old sparkling self. Sure it fits snug, but the first time i dropped the phone it shattered the screen and it landed on the edge!! These may look pretty but really they are useless, over priced pieces of garbage that i would not recommend to anyone

    Excellent Case

    • Written by from Andrews

    I almost didnt buy this case because of all the bad reviews. Almost every review on here says they could not keep the case clean. Im so glad i chose to see for myself, because I love this case! I got the brown one so maybe the lighter colors are harder to keep clean. I have had mine for about two months and it is still as clean as the day I got it, Iv never even had to wipe a smudge off. I have not taken extra care with it, I use it with dirty hands while outside and even use it when my hands are covered in lotion. I have already dropped it several times and the case doesnt even have a scratch on it. It is still in perfect condition. I also dont find it hard to take off, it pops off the same as all other back cases I have owned. If you are looking for a heavy duty case then the otterbox would probally be better, but if you are just looking for basic protection that has a classy look this is the best option.

    :(

    • Written by from Den Helder

    I got the beige one when I bought my iPhone 5S and should have returned it when I still could because it started wearing off already after 1 week. It looks horrible and "dirty" around the edges now. I'm very disappointed. What a waste of 40 bucks.

    Beautiful case... for a while.

    • Written by from Chicago

    I bought this case about three months ago. It is of great build quality, and I'm proud to be sporting an Apple case, but I will echo the cons mentioned in many other reviews here. This case will become irreversibly filthy-looking in a disappointingly short time. The edges around my case, both front and back, have turned nearly black from cumulative skin oils and/or being "polished" while riding in my pocket. Also, this is apparently meant to be a "put it on and leave it on" case as it is very hard to remove. I had no problem with that, but beware if you are using a dock etc. I'm replacing it w/an aftermarket case because it looks terrible now, and I've been very careful/clean with it.

    Ok

    • Written by from Vernal

    I bought the red one and it's ok but I would NOT buy this case again. I gad it like two days and it stated to turn black I tried to clean it but it made it worse. I YOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

    iPhone 5s leather case, red

    • Written by from Mount Laurel

    The case feels great and fits well. The buttons work, even though they are covered. As others have mentioned, the case looks filthy quickly. I keep mine in a pocket in my bag, so it is never out unless I am holding it and it still started to look nasty almost right away. I purchased it in October and have cleaned it with leather cleaner several times. It only looks just a tad better (still looks somewhat dirty after I clean it) but then gets nasty looking again right away. I think dirt just sticks to the material. So I spent the money and now I will be looking for a different case because this looks so bad.

    There is minimal if any protection to the screen because the sides jut out only maybe a millimeter.

    I wish Apple had a good case.

    Horrible

    • Written by from Paducah

    Looked awesome first day or two then immediately looked old and worn out. Apple should be ashamed to have their name on such an item and should definitely recall or offer a replacement item to anyone who has purchased. What a shame... I really wanted to like this case, light weight, looked awesome & expensive looking first couple of days. :-(

    Vintage Charm

    • Written by from Golden Valley

    Love this case. When I first saw it in person, I thought the leather looked too orange and new, but was really hoping it would wear into more of a vintage leather look with time. I was right - it did! After 6 months of use, it's now a deep brown with even darker brown wear marks around the edges....like an old book or something. It also fits very snug and the leather provides enough shock absorption to protect it from falls. And I'm sure this is neither recommended nor guaranteed with this case, but I accidentally dropped it in a sink full of water once, and somehow the phone managed to survive with no issues. I think God intervened on that one though...

    STUNNING BUT BECAREFUL

    • Written by from Leek

    This case is without a doubt, stunning but when I was using it the colour very quickly disappeared, now although I was careful and was aware of the warning from apple that the colour may change over time, I returned it back to the store and exchanged it for a black one, which was safe to say, much better! I wish apple had used to laminated plastic material instead that they used on the smartcovers for iPad.

    Elegant

    • Written by from Fremont

    Showcases the phone beautifully, with out adding bulk. Protection wise, you cannot compare it with the Otterbox cases. Overtime the case will grow into the old, worn-out and beaten look of patina on leather. Perfect for those who likes vintage. But if you would like to keep the case looking new longer, spray on some leather protectant before using. Available at all shoe repair places.

    Liked it at first

    • Written by from Cheshire

    I liked the style of this case very much when I first got it, although it was really tough to get on and off. When I took it off it squeezed the buttons so hard my phone would try to shut off. It would also randomly turn up the volume and make the volume buttons stick. After having it for maybe less than 6 months, it's now just starting to fall apart. The leather cracked near the vibrate switch, so it's loose. Now it comes off too easily. I thought it was pretty expensive and I hoped it would last awhile, but i'm already in the market for a new one. Disappointed.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Ripley

    I thought these cases looked awesome when I first saw them so of course I wanted one and bought it for myself. Complete waste of money. I haven't even had it a month yet and the brown case looks so dirty. It is dirty around every single edge. I love the grip of the case and the fact that it was made of leather but I wished it looked new like when I first got it. Your only safe bet in getting this case is to GET THE BLACK ONE.

    GET BLACK!!

    • Written by from Surrey

    I purchased this case in Red when I got my iPhone 5S and the case feels great!! Adds some grip to the phone, its light, the buttons work great (power button is a little harder to press) and it looks very sleek. BUT after 1 day of owning the phone, the case was already starting to show wearing along the edges and any kind of scratch. If it weren't for my phone having bluetooth issues and me taking it back the next day for a new phone, I probably wouldn't have been able to swap it out with a black case. I have had the black case for a couple of months now and it still looks great. SO Great case... only if you get it in black!
