    Ok

    • Written by from Vernal

    I bought the red one and it's ok but I would NOT buy this case again. I gad it like two days and it stated to turn black I tried to clean it but it made it worse. I YOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

    Vintage Charm

    • Written by from Golden Valley

    Love this case. When I first saw it in person, I thought the leather looked too orange and new, but was really hoping it would wear into more of a vintage leather look with time. I was right - it did! After 6 months of use, it's now a deep brown with even darker brown wear marks around the edges....like an old book or something. It also fits very snug and the leather provides enough shock absorption to protect it from falls. And I'm sure this is neither recommended nor guaranteed with this case, but I accidentally dropped it in a sink full of water once, and somehow the phone managed to survive with no issues. I think God intervened on that one though...

    STUNNING BUT BECAREFUL

    • Written by from Leek

    This case is without a doubt, stunning but when I was using it the colour very quickly disappeared, now although I was careful and was aware of the warning from apple that the colour may change over time, I returned it back to the store and exchanged it for a black one, which was safe to say, much better! I wish apple had used to laminated plastic material instead that they used on the smartcovers for iPad.

    Elegant

    • Written by from Fremont

    Showcases the phone beautifully, with out adding bulk. Protection wise, you cannot compare it with the Otterbox cases. Overtime the case will grow into the old, worn-out and beaten look of patina on leather. Perfect for those who likes vintage. But if you would like to keep the case looking new longer, spray on some leather protectant before using. Available at all shoe repair places.

    Quality product

    • Written by from Moose Jaw

    I read the mostly bad reviews before buying this but thought I'd give it a try anyway. Honestly it's not that bad. I've had the case on for about a month and I would not call the appearance dirty, not mine anyway. It looks "aged" is probably the best way to describe it. I don't mind the look one bit, although maybe mine isn't as bad as some others. It's real leather, it will change color slightly and I'm good with that.

    The case itself is very high quality and aside from a slight discoloring it's a fabulous case. If a slight discoloration on the edges bothers you, don't buy it.

    Could be better...

    • Written by from Bronx

    I bought this case in red. I wanted a stylish case that would also fully protect my phone. As far as minimalist protection goes, this case is GREAT! It keeps the phone very secure and well protected without adding a lot of weight to the phone or taking away from the design. However it gets dirty and wears VERY easily with general use. I only keep my phone in my purse, my coat pocket, and on my desk at home and work. Nothing out of the ordinary. Yet I have had to clean it off at least twice a week to keep it looking fresh and new. I also began noticing slight nicks in the material. I haven't even had it for a full month. Unacceptable for a case that cost almost $45 (with tax).

    Beautiful but not practical

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Thin, pretty and protects screen/back.
    A bit slippery - better than with no case at all.
    Most slightly textured plastic cases are less slippery.

    Any sharp object can damage the leather, it's a very soft leather with no coating.
    I was expecting shoes grade leather for durability. Was a bit surprised it is the softest version of leather.

    Avoid keys, hard surfaces(concrete) and dirt.

    Exactly what I needed!

    • Written by from BROOKSVILLE

    The iPhone 5 and 5s are already the most durable iPhone yet, but that just wasn't good enough for me, considering how important this product is to me and how likely I am to do detrimental damage to the phone with no protection. However, I cringed at the thought of having to pull a brick out of my pocket every time I wanted to use it. This is the perfect solution. It protects the phone completely from almost any damage I can inflict on it in a day. Drops into any surface from chest or head level don't harm the phone in the slightest, however concrete drops have made some scuffs on the case itself, which is fine compared to what would happen otherwise. On top of that, I don't even need a screen protector to prevent scratches because the case comes slightly over the level of the screen, eliminating that need.

    This is a small but powerful case. Stylish, and engineered to perfection, it's well worth the money.

    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.

    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.

    Not worth the price

    • Written by from Victoria

    It pains me to leave this negative review... I'm only doing it to save someone else from spending the money on it.

    I have the blue one and it began to discolor terribly within a week. The blue dye in jeans rubs off onto the case which makes your case look like it's outlined in denim. It also gets very, very dirty very quickly with the dirt and oil from your hands. I've had it less than a month and it's absolutely filthy. It's practically brown and that's just from normal use.

    The leather is also starting to chip off. I'm not sure how that happens, but it does.

    I only gave it a two-star review because the phone does fit very snugly into the case and has not, and probably will not, fall out.

    Great lightweight case

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This is a nice lightweight case that fits the phone snugly and looks beautiful! The leather is soft and wears in nicely. Some of the other reviews complain about the cases getting dirty but I mean that's gonna happen from everyday use. Big fan of this product!

    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.

    • 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.
