    I bought the Red one, very nice case other than the fact it gets dirty easy (or shows the dirt I should say) and wont clean off....looks grubby, and I am not a person to subject my phone to dirty conditions etc....

    not as good as I imagine

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    Have it in red, It is really nice the color, the grip and texture but it's hard to take it off and the more important is that it's hard to keep it clean, only 5 days using it and the edges are grey because holding it. I expected more than what it is for the price.

    Awesome, but does not last

    • Written by from Chuluota

    Awesome design of the case, feels great and it protects the phone perfectly. However if you do drop your phone, the phone will be fine, but it will take a chunk out of the leather. I have had mine for a month and I have a corner of the case missing from the one time I dropped it.

    Bose headphones don't fit with cover on!

    • Written by from SAN RAMON

    Liked this case until I tried to plug in headphones. Hole in case for headphone isn't large enough to permit full connection of headphones to headphone jack!
    Guess if I never plan to use headphones the case is nice. Not happy :(

    It's great for a few days...

    • Written by from West Hartford

    I've had my case for about 2 weeks now. It looks like I've had it for a year. I loved the case when I first got it - looks great, feels great, fits great. But it wears like none other, one day in the jeans and it got stained blue. Picks up scuffs and dirt VERY easily (just from putting it in and out of your pocket). It will make your brand new sparkling 5s look worn and dirty, and you know you got that thing to show off, so unfortunately, don't buy this case. Wish I could return it.

    Great Look, Bad Quality

    • Written by from Andover

    I bought this case and I loved how it looked and felt much more than any hard case. After a week, though, the material started wearing away just from removing it from my pocket. I didn't want to, but I returned it and replaced it with a Speck case, which I don't like as much design wise. It just wasn't worth $40 for a case that was not going to last long at all

    Sleek & Pretty to Ugly & Dirty

    • Written by from Henderson

    Bought this case in blue with my iPhone 5s and it looked great but after sliding it in and out of my jeans and having it on my desk it is now dirty after a little over a month. Tried cleaning it but the edges around the phone are dark and almost black. I will be purchasing a new case and it won't be this one again.

    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.

    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.

    Looks great but not durable

    It's a great looking case and thin. I've had mine only one week and the top part above the charger hole already cracked.

    Beautiful case, but stains easily

    • Written by from Highland

    Love the design of the case. It's thin, protects, and feels great to hold. However, I returned mine after only 5 days because it was already stained from keeping it in my jeans pocket. The apple store employees told me that's just because it's leather, but leather wallets don't have this problem. I think black is the only case most people will be able to keep looking nice.

    Beautiful case but…

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I got the black leather case the same day I purchased my slate 5s on release day. The case is beautifully crafted giving the phone enough protection while enhancing the overall look and feel of the iPhone with leather. My gripe with this particular case is that it works with ZERO accessories Apple has made for the phone—that alone takes so much away from the pluses of getting this case. The 30-pin adapter wouldn't reach the port, the 30-pin cable adapter has a plug that has a bigger diameter than the Lightning port opening on the case, and the dock of course couldn't dock with the short dongle unable to reach the port securely—heck I even tried getting the dock for the 5c in hopes that the thicker 5c would have a dock that might work for a cased 5s—NOPE! Only the cable that came with the phone fits, and same goes for the headphones so buyer beware. It's too bad that such a beautifully design case also comes with a lot of hind-sighted design cues (what no one bothered thoroughly testing this product in real-world scenarios?). Unlike others that bought this leather case and is plagued with leather degradation or staining issues, I have none of that (caveat: I take care of my stuff with OCD-like care). What I do have is a beautiful case that doesn't work with any peripheral or adapter, 3rd party or not, and that to me should be cause for alarm for Apple since it is a sign of them not being thorough like everyone perceives them to be. Design should never forget function and it never has to be either or.

    Use & tear

    • Written by from New York

    This product looks and feels great but it starts to show signs of wear and tear in about 5-6 days.
    the beige gets dirty quick, and the leather stars to show signs of damaging.

    worst thing: will not work with the lighting to 3pin converter. i still use my old iphone charger with the converter at times and i have to remove my cover all the time.
    its a real pain

    How does apple make a case for a phone that won't allow a headphone jack to be plugged in? Really????? Every other case I have bought has never had this issue.

    dirty and semi loose fitting

    • Written by from Schererville

    While I like the touch of the material. After just a few days of use it is noticeably dirty and this been in a clean environment. The case also doesn't hold onto the phone as tightly as needed. The phone easily pops out and this will not protect it whatsoever from even a short drop. I can pull it out of my pocket and that slight effort is enough to pop out a corner of my phone. I would pay $5 for this. I am returning this case because it is not worth the cost.

    Great style but impractical

    • Written by from Woodinville

    Looks great, feels good and fits perfectly. However I can't recommend this cover since after 3 weeks the leather is grubby - this isn't "cool natural wear" it's just plain dirty and I'm embarrassed to bring my phone out in meetings.

    I washed it a couple of times but it's already past the point of no return. Back to plastic. Shame though, I loved it when it was new. Black color might work better?
