    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.

    Not good

    • Written by from Porto Alegre

    I bought this case and in 1 week it was completely wasted and dirty, and I was really taking care of it, putting only in my pocket and inside my bag really carefully. So disappointed... would never expect that for an apple product

    Iphone 5s - Beige Cover

    • Written by from Sydney

    Just bought my iphone 5s and the beige cover and the first day I have used it, the leather is already showing signs of wear and stains. I am very disappointed with the quality of this product, especially considering that I have chosen this Apple cover over the wide variety of covers on offer.

    Dont be fooled

    • Written by from Pahrump

    I thought this was the perfect compliment to my ipad mini brown leather case but found out in 2 weeks the poor quality and dye issues with this case. After fading color and edges peeling I went back to the apple store at town square in las vegas where I purchased it and was told by 2 employees that is the way it is supposed to age. Very disappointing from an apple product that should be better quality

    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. :(

    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.

    Disappointment

    • Written by from СПб

    I purchased brown case for my white iphone and it looked just great initially. It fits phone really nice. But only after a couple of days, the case began to lose it's color. Then, dark scuffs have appeared. Now, only after three weeks after purchase it looks just horrible, as if I was using it for years! Just incredible, how apple managed to get this thing to wear off so quickly. Very disappointed.

    Appealing on Shelf but wears out quickly -Low quality

    • Written by from Washington

    Case looked great when I first bought it. Now a month later it is very worn out. Lots of reviews say it looks dirty. but I believe this is just the leather rubbing off. I used leather cleaner and it barely removed any dirt, yet the case still looked terrible. This is because the leather is so thin it wears off very quickly. What a waste of 40 bucks!

    Dressy to dirty in one week

    • Written by from Eagle

    The case looks great when you put it on but the good times don't last. Looks like you have been through grease and grime within and week and then it just gets worse. Fits the phone well and is slim and sleek but who cares if all you can see is the dirt.
