    Great feel and fit but hard to keep clean

    • Written by from Spring

    This case it's well crafted. Beautiful designed and fit perfect on my iPhone 5s. I bought the yellow one since my iPhone is black and want to add some color. It looked great, but within days it started to show signs of dirt and it's very hard to clean! I clean my hands often. But I don't want a case that every time that I want to use my phone, I have to protect the protector.

    Beautiful, not quite there yet . . .

    The texture of this leather case is nicely matte, you can grab and grip the iphone without it slipping out of your hand.

    The problem is the leather is not rigid enough to lay snugly against the sides of the phone. It gaps, allowing dust and stuff to wander in.

    Nice first try, Apple. I look forward to V2.

    Fits snug and well on the phone, and feels nice in your hand, but the FIRST time I had to take the case off my phone the interior plastic broke between the volume down button and the front of the case. Now the phone doesn't line up correctly inside the case. Don't waste $40 on a case that may break the first time you need to take it off.

    Don't buy this product

    • Written by from Caloocan City

    It's not worth the price I paid because stains and dirt cannot be removed even when you clean this product, you will only get frustrated. It's a scam to buy this product

    Apple does it again

    • Written by from fridley

    I honestly don't see why everyone seems to dislike this product, I'm a Marine and I get dirty everyday. I purchased the brown case seven days ago and it's still in perfect condition, even though I've dropped it twice. Like many proponents of this case have stated it's very soft, smooth, looks great, and what you would expect from apple products.

    Avoid this case

    • Written by from SAN ANTONIO

    This case looks nice all for about a week, then because of the leather, it starts to Tarnish in a way.
    Don't waste 40 bucks on this.

    Take your 40$, go to a tannery, and get 12 of them.

    5s case broken after less than 3 months, flimsy bottom

    • Written by from Hoboken

    Iphone 5S Gold 64GB, 5S Blue Case, first minute it went onsale.

    At first the case is very snug and feels great.The sides of the case start to turn black and worn over time.

    But once you start taking it on and off the pleather begins to weaken. The area at the bottom of the case where the headphone jack-speaker-lighting port will break eventually. Its too thin to withstand the pressure of putting on and removing the case.

    Now its past the return time - hopefully an Apple Store can help.

    Like a previous reviewer, I too had a "close encounter" with my iPhone 5S and a concrete floor, but the Apple case absorbed the impact quite well. Although I have to admit that I also have a Moshi screen protector, I believe that the case was the reason why my phone escaped unscathed. After reading about all of the issues regarding the lighter colored cases, I'm glad that black is my favorite pigment. Because the leather used for this case is aniline, there's not a lot one can do about cleaning scuff marks and such other than wiping it with a dampened clean cotton cloth. As for my black case, it just keeps looking and feeling better every day.

    Wears poorly, lightning adapter doesn't fit.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've now had the brown case for ~6 weeks and can honestly say that while the fit of the case is great, it wears EXTREMELY poorly. From the first day I had the case, the leather started darkening on all the edges. It's not dirty, but it looks absolutely AWFUL. Not to mention, if you drop your phone on rug, it can actually peel back some of the leather from the edges.

    Also, Apple's own 30-pin to Lightning Adapter (the one with the cable), doesn't fit the lightning port cutout on the case, and actually 'clips' the leather. So disappointing.

    I'm honestly shocked that Apple let such a mediocre product go to market. :(

    Love the worn and aged look

    • Written by from FOLSOM

    I notice that there are a lot of reviews complaining about the case getting dirty and showing signs of wear. Funny, this is the thing I love about the case. And in the end, it's authentic leather and is doing what it should be doing. If you want a case that looks pristine and new forever, move on, this is not the case for you. If you want a case that looks unique and antique and has character, this might be the one...it is for me.

    Please dont buy- Please stop selling this product

    • Written by from Jagadhri

    I never expect that apple is making this kind of quality product. i buy brown colour ,in a minute leather is coming off from corners even of normal use.

    Why not buy??
    1) Leather quality not up to mark and can come off with normal use
    2) Get dirty easily and not able to clean at home without professional leather cleaner products.
    3) Too expensive.
    People are giving good review on first use experences but latter the experence with product is too bad

    Please Apple u must review your quality control before lauching a new product as we have great expection from you and ur brand is our part of family

    Please stop selling for this product.

    Is this Leather?

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought the Product (RED) version of this case and after having it for about a week, it looks like i have had it for a year. It was discolored around the corners within 48 hours. Just trying to put the case on I tore off a chunk of the side with my fingernail. Leather shouldn't tear like that. Then when I tried to remove it after a few days, the bottom part by the lightning plug snapped in half. Leather shouldn't snap in half either. Awful product all around, I would waste your money.

    Perfect fit

    • Written by from Lewis Center

    Absolutely love this case. Exactly as it is beautifully described on the apple site. "Supple and buttery in the hand". Only took it down one star due to the slight orangey tint to the brown leather. But I've grown to like it.

    Overpriced Dirt Magnet

    • Written by from Toronto

    If you want this case you need to buy shoe polish. Sure it's thin stylish and sleek at first but not even 4 days out of the package on my new iphone, this case is already dirty I can only imagine what it would look like in a month after being in my pocket or a desk never mind putting your phone down wherever you go it will pick up all dirt. Oh yeah and good luck of you actually need it for protection. This case disentegrates on contact with the ground.

    I used it for a day. And I can already see it turn dirty. So I decide to take it off ans the case cracked near the lighting connector. This is the worst product I have wasted my money on. 45 dollars and have it break on you less than 24 hours.

    iPhone face cracked - this offers very little protection

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    Buyer beware!

    I have had iPhones since the 3G came out and have never cracked the face. After only a couple weeks or so of having this case, the phone took a small tumble and the phone cracked. Such a bummer!

    I have had iPhones for a long time and had so many drops, I have lost count. This case didn't hold the phone in, so when it fell, the edge hit the floor and the screen cracked. Truly, this case does not provide protection.
