    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.

    No Bueno

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    Gets very dirty, very easily and the actual leather is paper-thin. No good.

    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.

    Terrible quality

    • Written by from Manchester

    I got the brown case to go with 5S gold for its feel and look only. The case changed its color particularly on edges and turned to a dark gray color after few months. Now it is awful. Unfortunately, Apple Store rep said there is no warranty for these items. I am considering removing it. The phone itself looks elegant and doesn't really need a case for protection. I expected better quality from Apple.

    These cases are useless, do not buy

    • Written by from Carlingford

    These cases mark so easily, i had a brand new red one that was sparkling when i first bought it, after about a week of use it began to mark and now the edges are black and it is barely recognisable of its old sparkling self. Sure it fits snug, but the first time i dropped the phone it shattered the screen and it landed on the edge!! These may look pretty but really they are useless, over priced pieces of garbage that i would not recommend to anyone

    Worst in Class

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case feels great. And looks amazing on Day 1. But after 2 weeks its gets stained up and dirty. Does not weather well at all and ends up looks really bad. But...Day 1 was great.

    Looks really bad after only a week

    • Written by from Doral

    I purchased this case exactly 1 month ago. I originally like the case. However, after a week or so, the case started to look very worn. The sides started to rub off, and the color has faded. This is a hard to remove case and doesn’t fit other cables than the original lightning cable from Apple.

    Buy the balck cover, this one stains VERY EASILY

    • Written by from Georgetown

    Loved the idea of a leather casing. Bought the brown leather cover to keep the Apple aesthetics and remain loyal to the brand. Unfortunately after just two or three days the brown case would stain very easily, I repeat, very easily. I’m disappointed cause I spent 50 dollars on something that now I don’t like, but makes my iPhone looks horrible. Wish I can trade it of for a black cover at least.

    IPhone 5S Leather Case

    • Written by from Surat

    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 the greatest

    • Written by from Portland

    Where to start? This leather case is only a month old and most of the borders are starting to peel, even though I take great care of it. The texture of the leather is dull and it's getting worse by the minute. The case is really hard to get off the phone. I can't even use my own headphones cause it won't fit trough this case, and it only would fit the apple ones which I can't use cause they keep falling off my ears. So I actually need to remove the case if I want to hear music or a video, which is an impossible task considering how hard it is to get off. I just gave up the torture with this case and bought a $5 case online.
    For the quality, this item is extremely over priced at $39. My new $5 case it's much much much better. Do not recommend this product.

    Best case

    • Written by from maldon

    I have the brown case and although it gets dirty and the leather bruises this is part of a vintage character that I like my phone to go fro! The case fits amazingly around the handset and keeps the phone slim whilst still protecting the phone! I strongly recommend this phone case! If you don't want the vintage look go for the black one as that makes the phone look real executive! And doesn't have the dirt problem! But of you want a nice vintage feel go for the brown one.

    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.

    Worst product ever

    • Written by from Manizales

    I purchased this case 3 days ago and today it was already damaged. With a careful usage i gave my new iPhone 5s and it's case, only with the rub of my pocket, the case got really ugly and it looks like I had it for years. I really don't recommend it to anyone and I hope that apple takes them away of their catalogues.

    Nice case but get the black

    • Written by from Liberty Township

    This is a nice leather case but get the black. Got a yellow for my wife and brown for myself. Gets dirty quickly and impossible to clean. Have only had a couple of months and both are very stained. Tried a leather cleaner, no results.

    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. :(
