    No Bueno

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    Gets very dirty, very easily and the actual leather is paper-thin. No good.

    I have had this case for 1 month. I have dropped my iPhone twice from a height of 12 inches accidentally and both times the screen was completely shattered. It does not protect the phone unless your phone falls directly on its back. Horrible case. Waste of 40 dollars. Won't even let me return the case anymore. Extremely disappointed with this apple product.

    Gets very dirty fast

    I purchased a product red case on release date and now a little over a month later it looks like I've tossed it around in the mud

    Pretty but not practical

    • Written by from PETALUMA

    My husband and I both bought this case. We love the fit and feel of the case but just make sure you never drop it! Within two weeks of having the phone with the case, we dropped our phones (obviously at different times), and quickly had tears in the leather. My tears are worse because I was outside and it landed on the sidewalk. Good news is that the phones are unmarked but the bad news is that we will shortly need new cases. We are very disappointed because the case fits so perfectly and looks so nice. Hope we can get a refund?????

    PS : we bought the black and blue case (not brown)

    I really didn't believe people who left and gave below 3 stars with bad comments until i saw it with my own eyes. I loved the case blue and brown. Luckily one of my local apple store had samples out. Like most of comments said, hole where earphone goes in was broken(?) the colors are fainting mostly on the edge. I have 2stars because rips and appearances are all nice but definitely not a long lasting case. They also had 5c case but wow, 5c cases are more durable and grips are much greater than 5s. I recommend getting a black but other than that, don't. Unless you have money exploding from pocket.

    Fantastic case, literally made for the phone

    • Written by from Holly Springs

    The good:
    - Case is hard to remove, which means the phone won't come out easily. Inconvenient only for complainers.
    - Fits perfectly; every line and cutout are in perfect position, showing Apple's attention to detail is maintained.
    - That genuine leather feel.
    - It discolors. Leather discolors and yes, I think this is a good thing. Like the leather on my steering wheel, it went from matte over the past few years, and slowly absorbed my skin oils to have a slight polished look to it. As it absorbs the oils, it changes color, but those oils also enhance its durability. Stop whining about it already.

    The bad:
    - Price. Could have been $10 cheaper, but I'll live.

    Don't get me wrong the case fits perfectly to your iphone 5s, but it gets really filthy dirty.

    Looks great - that's it!

    • Written by from Albrighton

    Bought RED case, looks great, feels nice and crucially, is slim.

    Had it less than two weeks however, and the leather is pretty grubby despite it living in my pocket mostly. It's starting to sag and gape around the 'silence button' and the thing that infuriates me more than anything (and granted I didn't check before buying) is why would they design a case that doesn't fit their own designed accessories!? Doesn't fit the dock, case has to come off! Doesn't fit the lightening to 30 pin adaptor, case has to come off! No other earphones than the apple buds fit, case has to come off! I just can't fathom why they wouldn't consider these things and just make the holes bigger!

    Waste of $40 pass on this one!

    • Written by from North Babylon

    I was excited for the Apple brand case at first and once I was able to get it on I loved it. Then after only a few days in my pocket the case began to wear and the case looked scuffed and the beige color I bought had suddenly began to darken around the edges. I don't keep anything than my phone in my pocket. Definitely not the quality I expected and removing this case is very difficult. I thought I was breaking my phone, it's that hard. A waste of $40.

    Looks great but really annoying that you have to remove the case when you want to put it in a dock or connect to a speaker. Really though apple would have thought it through better. Disappointed!

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Sutton

    The fit of the case is great and that is where it ends. I'm not impressed with the leather case. I've had it for almost a month and it already looks worn and used. I expected a lot more from Apple. I would recommend purchasing a different case from someone else. The edges of the case show the most worn, I'm not a heavy user. I usually just slide my phone in and out of my pocket. Every edge is worn out and probably won't last until Christmas.

    Looked great when I first put it on and fits great but it's discolored in only a week. From placing it in my pocket for a week it has gotten black stains along the edges. Don't buy.

    Horrible quality

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I loved how it looked on the shelf and I thought It will look amazing on my new iPhone 5s. I was mistaken. It changes the color quickly and gets dirty easily. It is made of nice feeling leather but low quality. Don't waste your money buying this. Apple, you disappoint me :(

    Beware of the Brown Case

    • Written by from Austin

    I love the look, feel and sleekness of these cases. I opted for the brown, as I thought it looked great with the Space Grey phone. I had it for less than a week and the leather stained so drastically that it looked as if a toddler had used it to make mud pies. I carry my phone in my pocket and it seemed to absorb the dye from my jeans entirely too easily. I tried to clean the case with leather wipes, leather cleaner, even rubbing alcohol and nothing would get rid of the stains.

    Looks great out of the box, that crisp brown color only lasts a few days.

    Wouldn't recommend.

    One month from delivery to trash

    • Written by from BLOOMFIELD

    This is the worst case I've ever had. It's not only FILTHY, after exactly a month, but the leather has actually worn off in a few places. Overpriced and not worth it! I've never felt like such a sucker.

    It's OK

    • Written by from Abingdon

    The case looks nice... However, it's very difficult to get in and out of the case. The edges already have a worn appearance.

    I bought the 5s to 30 prong adaptor so I could use old cords on the go; however, the adaptor doesn't fit while the phone is in its case. Same for the audio cable for the car; I can't use it while the phone is in this case. Stinks to have to take the phone out anytime I want to listen to music or charge...

    This case is great if u want to add some protection but lv how light and slim phone is.
    i got the yellow and it looks great on the space gray 5s. don't worry about how some say it gets really dirty as long as your hand are nice and clean it will say great forever. The leather feels as if it is rubber coated. it is so soft. the buttons as great. they barely need any pressure to press. all u need to do is give it a little press and the volume and sleep/wake work great. over all and amazing case and my fav over all other well known brands. By far go with the apple case.

    Well made leather cases that get dirty way to easy.

    • Written by from Midland

    Apple had made such a nice leather cases. Yes the fit is super tight, very hard to get off, a lot head jacks and not all lightning adapter and plug will fit. Price is fine for a leather case. These were problem I knew when making the purchases. The problem not expect was how easy this brown leather get dirty so fast. The case I have is going from brown to a dirty black at an alarmingly quick rate, especially around the edges. I like the case and do not want to return it. Unless I can find a way to clean it Apple might be getting a return.

    Best I've seen

    • Written by from East rockaway

    What's so good about this case is that you can see the aluminum bezel and it won't fall off the phone. Also smooth leather and good weight. Best case I've ever had for the iphone
