    Lovely case which gets dirty easily

    • Written by from Stockton

    I have the cream version if this case. It fits my phone perfectly and is soft inside so it doesn't get scratched.
    The only thing is the corners have gone dark through usage, and this is only after a few months, so it looks a bit scruffy.
    Any advice on what to clean it with would be much appreciated!

    Bad case - it tears!

    • Written by from Harris

    My 1 month old case has just tore. The case has a weak point next to the protuberance that covers the volume buttons of the iphone. When I was taking the iphone out of the case, it tore in this weak point (no, I didn't use too much force, or bended it too much, and I think this was the 5th or 6th time I took the iphone out of the case). Don't waste your money.

    Near Perfect

    • Written by from Arlington

    I just can't understand some of these reviews, and how this case would get any less than 4 stars. This is the best case that I've ever used on any iPhone, an I've owned every iPhone. First of all, the fit is perfect. Some people gave it low ratings because it is hard to take off because it's so snug -- maybe because it FITS PERFECTLY. The case isn't designed to be removed and put back on every day and used with your dock -- it's leather, and leather stretches ...basic physics. The first time you put it on, it will be a tight fit, but every hole will line up perfectly, unlike many other cases. The fit and finish is flawless. Second, yes, the leather wears and changes in appearance. Again, this is because it's leather ...which changes in appearance. If you want the case to look the exact same as when you first bought it, buy a plastic case. And this is also why there is a note that says "this case will change in appearance over time" on the package. The case feels perfect in the hand and is beautifully made. Unless you have a ton of proprietary accessories that you want to use with it, or you're looking for a "rugged" case like an OtterBox, do yourself a favor and try it out.

    Is there a way to clean my leather case? with what chemical and what type of cloth???

    It's Okay

    • Written by from El Mirage

    The case looks luxuriously elegant, but the leather weathers easily. I have had mine for 2 months and the edges of the leather case are now dry and shedding pieces of the case. For the price of the case, it doesnt last very long.

    Great case!!

    • Written by from Grand Haven

    I absolutely love this case. I was originally going to buy this case when i got my iPhone 5s but i got an otter box instead, so after feeling a little buyers remorse I finally broke down and bought it. This case at first was a little stiff but that was expected, after a few days it loosened up and the leather feels great and looks awesome, it is leather so after a while it will begin to take on its own look, kind of like a patina, so it will look more and more one of kind after every adventure you bring it on. overall great case apple and I think you will like it too.

    IPhone 5S Leather Case

    I really like this case, easy to keep good looking with a little work.

    • Written by from Stafford

    Okay, I'll start off by saying I'm not lazy, and I'm aware of proper leather maintenance.
    If your willing to put a little work into it this case can stay looking brand new.

    I like the feel of the case, it does feel stronger than I would have thought. It fits very snuggly around only the corners of your device. If you are using a screen protecter it won't be affected by this case.

    Which leads me to my next point, the dust factor. This case does allow a slight amount of dust to fall into it. That bothers me more because the case is so snug, it isn't easy to take your phone out and clean the dirt and build up of "Life's grime"

    I would get this case for someone as a birthday present, or similar.

    It could have used a bit better conditioning before it came to me, but that's to be expected in leather of this quality. It's not top shelve leather people. You are getting what you pay for.

    I've conditioned it myself with raw (unprocessed, unrefined) shea butter. It did wonders for the texture. Also, the fibers reject oils from my hand better now. So it doesn't discolor as frequently. I clean it much less now to get it back to new condition.

    Not the greatest

    • Written by from Portland

    Where to start? This leather case is only a month old and most of the borders are starting to peel, even though I take great care of it. The texture of the leather is dull and it's getting worse by the minute. The case is really hard to get off the phone. I can't even use my own headphones cause it won't fit trough this case, and it only would fit the apple ones which I can't use cause they keep falling off my ears. So I actually need to remove the case if I want to hear music or a video, which is an impossible task considering how hard it is to get off. I just gave up the torture with this case and bought a $5 case online.
    For the quality, this item is extremely over priced at $39. My new $5 case it's much much much better. Do not recommend this product.

    Brown Iphone 5s case

    • Written by from manassas

    I had wanted this case for a while since the debut of Iphone 5s cases, but I am disappointed in how difficult it becomes to take off the case of the phone. If this wasn't an issue than I would rate 5 stars so because of this flaw I am giving this case a 3 stars.

    beautiful but not practical

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    This is my absolute favorite case I've ever found, sleek, goes all the way around the edges, (which is hard to find in a stylish case), comes in amazing colors, awesome quality, suede lined! With one huge but, I bought the blue and it became dirty/showed dirt, so quickly. I've tried gently using leather cleaners, even just a slightly damp cloth, hasn't worked. I am so bummed because I love the look so much. I may try the tan, probably best bet in terms of dirt problem. If you are super careful with where you put/handling your iphone, go for it!

    Not Worth it

    • Written by from san francisco

    Very beautiful case. Fits great; iPhone still remains thin. But, i bought a beige and a red case. BOTH, with 2 days use looked like 2 years use, especially the beige. Scratches very easily, the corners get black just by rubbing your finger tip.

    AWESOME Case!

    • Written by from Merrickville

    I'm so glad Apple is making iPhone cases again. I ordered the red one for my new white iPhone 5S and it looks awesome. It's snug and thin, the feel of the grain is fantastic. It looks stunning! Very pleased!

    Awesome Case - Definitely Recommended

    • Written by from Princeton

    So I went for the the black color after reading reviews that say the other colors get dirty (they do), and I'm extremely happy with it. I've had it for a week, and so far it has a very professional look to it and perfectly fits the iPhone. This case looks like it belongs. Also, on the black, wear and tear is not even visible! Looks amazing with my Space Grey. I gave this a 4 star rating because 1. the price is a little high, but you get Apple quality (the best), and 2. this case is not made like an Otterbox. It will protect against everyday drops but nothing too fancy. I already dropped it twice and nothing happend. So it's not bad.

    Headphone and Aux Cords will not fit!!!

    • Written by from Marshalltown

    Headphone and Aux Cords are not fitting in this case. I like the touch of case but am surprised with the fact that apple can have such a bad quality controls. On top ppl in customer service have no idea about the problem even if it is marked in reviews.

    Nice case, but needs to be darker

    • Written by from Bowmanville

    The colour of the brown case is more like "moccasin". It shows wear and dirt on the corners a bit. If it was a darker brown, it would be 5 stars. I've had mine for 2 months. I definitely would not recommend any of the lighter pastel colours. Black would not have the problem.

    The case itself is great. Light, thin, good grip, nice thin lip to protect the front so you can put it face-down on a table.

    Some people say it is hard to remove the case, but it is not too bad. Just pop the bottom out first. You do have to pry the phone out a bit after that, and it usually trips the silence-ringer switch, but it is good to know that the phone won't fall out of the case on its own.
