    1 month later - The best iPhone case I've found

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I'll start off by saying that I've had this case in the color brown for about a month now. What I look for when case shopping are three different things: quality/fit, design, and protection. In my opinion, apple hit the head on all of these. The phone case is made out of leather, so yes, you're going to have to take care of it differently than a plastic case. After 1 month of use, the case has started to get a nice patina around the edges that will hopefully continue to cover the rest of the case. Yes the color has changed, and yes the edges are darker, but it is LEATHER and in my opinion, this is what gives leather character. If this is a problem for you, but a plastic case. Second, the fit is perfect. It is snug on the phone but is not impossible to get off like others have mentioned. With that said, if you plan on removing the case all the time, this isn't for you. If you're like me, and remove the case once every couple months, you will likely appreciate the fit as I do. Lastly, the design is perfect. It is thin, light, and offers the protection you need with out turning your phone into an armored brick. The edge is slightly raised above the screen to protect it when dropped, and the leather will likely absorb more impact than a piece of plastic. The cut out for the charger and speaker are done with precision, and the buttons are fully protected and accessible at the same time. So with this said, in my opinion apple nailed this. It's not for everyone, and especially not for those who do not like the natural characteristics of leather. To those I say, go buy a plastic case instead.

    Truly amazing

    • Written by from Bangalore

    This is probably one of the best cases I have used .The ports,the holes are precision cut and suite the elegance of the iphone .The feel of the case is so premium and especially the case shows a hint of the gold diamond cut chamfer .Yes the case does get dirty but I have used it for a month but I used a leather cleaner and it somehow removed the dirt and my case looks like new again .This case is meticulously designed just like the iphone !!!

    Beautifully Crafted

    • Written by from South Vienna

    The main point I would like to address is the issue of wear on this case. A lot of people are complaining of discoloration and it wearing too quickly. From my perspective, the case is rather gaudy when you first open it, and it only looks good after some wear. The light weird brown that it starts out as, turns into this beautiful shade of dark, almost shiny, brown. Akin to an Indiana Jones satchel. I wish mine would wear more quickly!

    Perfect Fit Perfect Case

    • Written by from Inver Grove Heights

    I don't understand most of these reviews....the brown leather case is a classy choice. It fits perfectly and snug. All the openings are in just the right locations and because the case is thin it does not add to the width of the phone just like it should be. It does rise up a little from the front screen which is what it should do when resting the phone face down on a table or desk to protect the screen. I have never removed mine since first installing it, I could see that the edges might get loose if you are constantly taking it on and off but you should not need to. The leather ages just like leather should, you can take a soft dish towel with a little water to clean it up by rubbing gently on the surface, it will dry and be clean. All of the ports are cut open exactly in the right place so I don't know why people are reporting issues there. This works for me perfectly and I like the look and feel of the quality of the leather. Get one!

    Don't buy this product

    • Written by from Caloocan City

    It's not worth the price I paid because stains and dirt cannot be removed even when you clean this product, you will only get frustrated. It's a scam to buy this product

    Apple does it again

    • Written by from fridley

    I honestly don't see why everyone seems to dislike this product, I'm a Marine and I get dirty everyday. I purchased the brown case seven days ago and it's still in perfect condition, even though I've dropped it twice. Like many proponents of this case have stated it's very soft, smooth, looks great, and what you would expect from apple products.

    Ooops.....smack....Whew!!

    • Written by from Corpus Christi

    Like a previous reviewer, I too had a "close encounter" with my iPhone 5S and a concrete floor, but the Apple case absorbed the impact quite well. Although I have to admit that I also have a Moshi screen protector, I believe that the case was the reason why my phone escaped unscathed. After reading about all of the issues regarding the lighter colored cases, I'm glad that black is my favorite pigment. Because the leather used for this case is aniline, there's not a lot one can do about cleaning scuff marks and such other than wiping it with a dampened clean cotton cloth. As for my black case, it just keeps looking and feeling better every day.

    Love the worn and aged look

    • Written by from FOLSOM

    I notice that there are a lot of reviews complaining about the case getting dirty and showing signs of wear. Funny, this is the thing I love about the case. And in the end, it's authentic leather and is doing what it should be doing. If you want a case that looks pristine and new forever, move on, this is not the case for you. If you want a case that looks unique and antique and has character, this might be the one...it is for me.

    My most favorite iphone case

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I have had so many different iphone cases and this one is by far the best and my favorite. The case fits snug which I have found most don't. I like that its leather because who doesn't love the smell of leather?!?! The case is very slim and doesn't add much weight to the phone. I have had many people compliment my case and mine is black, which doesn't stick out but people noticing how slim and nice the case is speaks for itself. You can't go wrong with this leather case. Just a word of warning... if you get any other color other than black the leather will wear just like leather does. So discoloration my happen to the lighter colored cases.

    Awsome Case

    • Written by from Ocala

    Beautiful case, slim, great fit and a smooth leather finish. I have the gold iPhone so I purchased the brown case and they look stunning together. This is another great design by Apple and finally a case worthy of the iPhone.

    One of my all-time favorite cases.

    • Written by from Tallahassee

    Fits like a glove and provides adequate protection in a minimal form factor. The case will pick up dirt (depending on the color), which gives it a worn look and, to me, adds character. It wears like leather should.

    Great Case

    I bought this case for my iPhone 5 and I'm very pleased. The blue color is beautiful, the case is snug, the interior lining is soft and protective, and the leather texture feels great in the hand.

    A beautiful combination

    • Written by from Louisville

    I received both my silver iPhone 5s and black aniline leather case in late September.

    The combination is beautiful IMO. The case is handsome and feels warm in the hand. The combination is extremely thin. The leather of the case is wearing handsomely.

    Complaining about the difficulty of removing the case is nitpicking IMO. I rarely find the need to remove the case, and it takes no more than 10 seconds to do so in any event.

    I cannot speak to the durability and long-term appearance of any other color.

    Love this case!

    • Written by from Milltown

    I just bought this case (in black) yesterday to go over my white iphone 5. I was hesitant at first because I felt like the case barely came around the edge of the phone and could fall right off, but it's actually incredibly sturdy and covers all the areas I want it to without being too bulky on the phone like most cases seem to be. I'm happy I made this purchase!
