    Awful

    • Written by from Bury

    I got a brown case in September for my new iPhone. I was hoping for a stylish leather look but never expected it will look so dirty and generally worn out just in 2 weeks. Top of the case turned black. It's a total disappointment. Wish I took it back to Apple Store but had no time do it during the first four weeks of a purchase. There is no point to take my case back now. No way I am buying another case of Apple. Even if you decide to get one, go for a black case. Hopefully it will look butter.

    Beautiful, then quickly a disappointment

    • Written by from CINCINNATI

    This brown leather case at first looked great and complimented the slate gray iPhone 5s beautifully. But, after a couple of months of carrying in my front pocket the brown leather looks dirty and dingy. The edges are a dreadful dark color. I have not found a good way to clean it. My previous Belkin leather case I used on my 4 for four years still looks as good as the day I bought it. I am so disappointed in this case and will take it back to an Apple store to try to get a refund.

    dont buy the brown one

    • Written by from Mogadore

    after about a month the edges and sides are becoming black and it will not come off. I have tried water, soap, laundry soap, leather cleaner, rubbing alcohol etc...... so, unless you like the 'used' look do not buy this in brown

    Worst cover ever

    • Written by from sioux falls

    Got this cover cause I loved the look of the leather case and thought it should be good quality being strait from Apple. Boy was I wrong, case wore out after about a month, leather is paper thin and wore though right away, worst $50 investment, save your money and buy a different case

    Really ugly and dirty after only a week

    • Written by from Atherton

    Plenty of bad reviews so I won't spend a lot of time. Bottom line, doesn't hold up to the standard I expected and just plain ugly after minimal use.

    bad case

    • Written by from Saginaw

    It Looked very nice and good looking at first, but after a few days the color around the corners start changing and getting darker and after a small falling down it will look like an old vintage case.

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Sutton

    The fit of the case is great and that is where it ends. I'm not impressed with the leather case. I've had it for almost a month and it already looks worn and used. I expected a lot more from Apple. I would recommend purchasing a different case from someone else. The edges of the case show the most worn, I'm not a heavy user. I usually just slide my phone in and out of my pocket. Every edge is worn out and probably won't last until Christmas.

    Great look and feel but....

    • Written by from San Diego

    I ordered the blue one online and as soon as I received it, I loved it. It felt great. Perfect fit. But...

    1. It is hard to remove
    2. It gets dirty very quickly
    3. The opening for the power cable didn't work for my Belkin dock
    4. The buttons didn't respond as well as I would have liked.

    I returned it to the Apple store and got a refund, applied to a new AppleCare plan for my 5s.

    Nice case, good feel, but makes the sleep button hard to press

    • Written by from Hicksville

    Nice case, good feel, but makes the sleep button very hard to press. Also very hard to remove your phone from the case if needed. I am returning mine.

    minimum design, soft to touch but sturdy as a protective case

    • Written by from Saint Louis

    There is a another review stating is slippery while I cannot agree. It's not a grain leather feel you would expect from handbags made of the same material, but its definitely not more slippery than the iphone 5/5s itself. I would say it feels more like a sheep leather, a satin finish. In general, it offers the right amount of grip friction you would expect from a protective case that is not oddly looked.

    The case does have quite good supportive material inside, so in case my phone is dropped corner-to-ground, the screen should survive. And it will take some effort to undress the case.

    One detail I'm not completely happy about is the feel of physical buttons covered by the case, the crisp feedback from button pushing is entirely gone, due to the design and the nature of leather compared to rubber. But it's not that serious so that you have to push uncomfortably hard to have the button do its job.

    Total disappointment

    • Written by from Toledo

    I've had my case for almost 7 months now and by the 5th month the "worn leather" effect looks disgusting. It downright looks dirty and cheap. It's hard to believe it's "worthy" of an Apple Logo. As it has provided me with protection, it's started to peel in the corners revealing the plastic material underneath. I'll never waste my money on leather Apple branded case again.

    :(

    • Written by from Den Helder

    I got the beige one when I bought my iPhone 5S and should have returned it when I still could because it started wearing off already after 1 week. It looks horrible and "dirty" around the edges now. I'm very disappointed. What a waste of 40 bucks.

    Wears out very fast

    • Written by from Lenoir City

    I bought this due to the really nice color, which I felt would look very nice with my gold 5S. Unfortunately, as others mention in their reviews, the color starts to rub off of the leather after just a few days. I bought mine on a Saturday night and by Monday it was already bare around the corners. I think tanned leather would have been much better. This product is not up to par for Apple, and should be skipped by any 5 and 5s owners.

    IPhone 5S Leather Case

    It is the worst case offered by apple, It hardly lasted 30 days. The complete back body of the case got damaged. Please don't buy, it isn't worth the money !!

    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.
