    Honestly the best iPhone case I've had. Thin and smooth, not to mention the black looks beautiful on my white iPhone 5S

    Headphone and Aux Cords will not fit!!!

    • Written by from Flowood

    I was pumped about the case. I bought the light brown and it looked great. Walked to my car from the Apple store and tried to plug in my car Aux cord, didn't fit. Tried my headphones, didn't fit. Walked back in the Apple store and tried every aux cord they had, none fit. I'm a huge Apple fan, but seriously. . . who tested this and gave it the thumbs up??? Not to mention my 30 pin to Lightning cord doesn't fit.

    Great fit, and no gaps around buttons.

    • Written by from JEFFERSON

    Although a bit pricey, this case fits better than any of the after-market cases. I love the way the buttons are 'part of the case'. It eliminates the dust and dirt which would collect in those areas when using a different case.
    The case adds very little extra bulk to the phone, but adds a lot of gripping power which makes it easier to grab from a countertop, etc. Easily slides into my front jean pocket, and easy to retrieve.
    Highly recommend!

    My iphone, covered, beatifully, for a few days at least...

    • Written by from High Wycombe

    As the tagline goes, "You're covered. Beautifully." That is until you place your new-by-a-week blue leather case on a glass hotel table, not realizing there was a grease spot from someone's food and voila! My iPhone is indeed covered, beautifully, with grease-stained leather! Buyer beware' the case is harder to keep clean than your glass-and-metal iphone! And at around £35 I was not impressed with this case's ability to pick up more grease than a car mechanic!

    Looks good but quality is terrible!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought the light beige, fits great and looks very nice. BUT I held phone with dirty hands and went to clean the case...I took a damp soft cloth to clean off the dirt AND THE COLOR PAINT CAME RIGHT OFF! The painted coating is super cheap!!!
    I can understand scuffing a case by dropping it etc. But to have the color come off with a gentle wipe is pathetic. At $45 I expect a better product.

    Didn't feel like leather

    • Written by from MONTGOMERY VILLAGE

    although I have no doubt that the materials and craftsmanship are tops, if someone told me it was simply made from compressed cardboard, I'd believe that over leather. I was hoping that it would have a slightly tacky feel being leather but it has more of a slippery hard cardboard feel in the hand. I also felt that it being leather might make it prone to staining if my hand was dirty or accidentally placed on an unclean surface.
    It is a very tight fit for the phone and I wonder how it would stand-up to being removed numerous times.

    The Brown is Just Okay

    • Written by from Seattle

    From a strictly functional view, this case does the job. It protects the phone from dropping and the texture from the leather aids in grip. it does not add bulk to the phone and other than the silent switch, speaker grill and earphone plug, it protects the phone from contiamients. From an asthetic point of view, the brown is a nice natural color. The case is also designed to allow the silver or gold edges to show as well. However, from longevity stand point, the case does not old up. After a week, it is lookingp dingy. A while I am glad the case protected my phone from damage (cosmetic and functional), the leather tore easily when I acidently dropped my phone when it got snagged coming out of my pocket. I therefore recommend black over the brown.

    Good looking but lacking quality

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This case looks absolutely stunning out of the package but after using it for only a week, it looks terrible. the edges wear off very quickly and the case easily goes out of its shape. I did not expect a quality this low from apple!

    Great case -- plus removal trick

    • Written by from Columbia

    First, many people here have criticized that the case is hard to take off. It's not--you just need to spend a few moments learning how to do it. The trick is that you need to smartly work both bottom corners. Hold the phone with a bottom corner facing straight up ^ and pop it from both sides. Then do the same to the other corner. Once both sides of the bottom are popped, work one side just a little more. The phone is out. No problem.

    When you're putting the case back on, slide it in from the top so the bottom two corners are the last ones in, and push.

    If Apple hadn't made the case so snug, it would not hold on if you dropped your phone toward the front. it wouldn't be as protective.

    I have both the black and PRODUCT (RED) cases, and switch between them. They feel great, add surprisingly little thickness, and always get compliments.

    You want this case. You need this case. You'll be very happy with this case.

    Red & Black Cases Rock

    • Written by from Riverwoods

    I have both cases. The Red is super slick. Actually love the fact the Red show wear and dirt...makes it mine and gives it a distinctive look. The results is a natural weathering process. Fantastic!

    The brown leather wears so easily. I have had this case for about a week now and I am very disappointed in the wear of it. I love the size but now it makes my phone look as if it has went through a war.

    Sleek but...

    • Written by from Winter Springs

    Love the new leather case. It almost feels as if there isn't a case at all on the phone which I welcome because most cases add way too much bulk.

    With that it is so very hard to remove. If you plan on leaving it on long term, go for it. If you're needing to remove the case for docking, etc. probably want to make a different choice. Although I must say I love it so much it is worth the struggle to remove it.

    I've also been over cautious with setting the phone down because of the leather. Always worried if the surface is wet or not. I have the case roughly a week and already there is one little dot (stain) that's driving me crazy!

    I purchased the RED one. Really love the case overall. I'm going to get the saddle tan one because I think that color will wear naturally and look good even if it is worn and stained.

    Quality and the feel of real leather!

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    My new iPhone 5s brown leather case is both durable and beautiful. It is matched to my Gold iPhone and the combination is perfect! It's not cheap but it's worth the price because it's going to last for several years! You will not regret this purchase!

    Hard to remove, keep it clean

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I bought this case and loved it for a day until I found it was extremely difficult to remove the case. I was worried my phone or the case might get damaged while trying hard and in fact my iPhone became a bit curved after removing it. I had manually make the metal part straight.
    This is so shame on Apple... The leather feels nice but at the cost of difficulty to removing and keeping it clean.

    Pros: looks nice, feels nice, luxurious overall.

    Cons: expensive, very hard to maintain, shows severe signs of use after 3+ days.

    The above sums it all. For something that looks ugly after 3+ days of normal use, $45+tax is not worth it. The edges start to discolor, as well as some other parts of the leather.

    Save your money and buy a third-party case.

    Feels Good.. But gets Dirty fast!

    • Written by from Long Beach

    I really like the way this case "feels" in my hand. After a series of Otterbox cases I wanted a lightweight case, at least for a little while. But after only a few weeks of handling this iPhone case, it looks like I've been sliding it across a dirty floor.

    For the price you'd think Apple would at least go through the trouble of Scotch Guarding the case. They usually make their products very well. I bought the Red one and its already really dirty. I've tried to clean it and although some scuffs came out, other's did not. Also, I agree with many of the other reviewers, this case is extremely "difficult to Remove!!" I had to take a break when removing mine and come back and try again.

    I would wait for the next generation or improved batch of these cases. These are flawed and costly. Like I said, I really like the way it feels BUT, If I could get my money back at this stage, I would.

    Lightning to 30-Pin Adapter will not fit into 5S Case

    • Written by from Okemos

    With the case on the phone, it is not possible to use the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter, as the plug is TOO SHORT!

    And, the case is VERY hard to remove, making it almost impossible to charge with the Adapter.

    Why would Apple design a case, and not have it fit its own adapter?

    Please explain the design flaw and your solution. I bought 3 adapters.
