    Not bad but has caveats

    • Written by from Roebuck

    As others have described, it has a very snug fit and feels quite nice in the hand. The various colors are well done in consideration of leather.

    However, the snug fit comes at the price of it being extremely difficult to remove; not an option if you wish to remove it regularly for a dock. Which it should be noted, this case prevents the iPhone 5S from sitting in the Apple dock made for this phone.

    Also after 3 days of use, soil marks (especially around the power button) are present on the my Brown leather version; I'd imagine this is found on any color other than the Black. Easy enough to buff out, but still an ongoing issue.

    I think it's a light, stylish case considering the strong build and appearance. But it should be noted the shortcomings it has.

    great but not perfect .

    • Written by from Coquitlam

    I got this case for my White with Gold iPhone 5s. The biggest problem with this case is that once you put it on the phone it is extremely difficult to take off. If you want to just put the case on and never take it off then it could work because it is extremely difficult to take this case off. The second thing I do not like about this case is that it does not allow me to show off the gold colour of the device and since it was so difficult to get the phone in white and gold I would like a case that allows the gold colour to show a bit. Over all it is a good quality case and a great case if you do not plan on taking it off or if you do not want to show the gold or silver colour of your phone.

    +ve(Snug, Light) -ve(difficult power button, gets dirty quickly)

    I got the PRODUCT (RED). Looks cool, feels soft, relatively thinner than most of the sturdy leather case in the market, and fits perfect. Some say its very hard to remove, IMO thats how a case should be, if you want protection! Accessing the volume buttons are fine, but I need to press harder to use the power button. Maybe its a defect or maybe thats how it is (since the power button is slender). And I have a feeling that the color cases might get dirty quickly (like your white leather shoes). Its been 7 hrs and already I'm seeing dark areas.

    Sleek case, but hard to remove.

    • Written by from Verona

    Purchased this case with my new white iPhone 5S today. Also bought the 5S dock as well. Personally, I'm always changing my case so when I wanted to remove this new leather case to put my phone on the dock, it took me a decent 5 minutes to remove. Most would think this case is very flexible because of the leather its made from. However this almost feels like a hard type of pleather. Now I'm stuck between either returning the dock and keeping the case on there for awhile, or, returning the case and keeping the dock. Most likely keeping the dock just because the leather case is so hard to remove.
