    Nice case but design flaw

    • Written by from Bridgeport

    I bought the black case for my gold 5s and it looks great! Nice fit and a superb feel to it! But, the case has a major design flaw with the connector port hole. The only thing that fits is the lighting charge cable that comes with the phone. I cannot use my car charger or an Apple 30 pin adapter. The connector hole opening is too small! Apple should have left the bottom of the case open for this reason plus to let the speakers be more open. I love this case but this flaw will probably make me return it. I cannot take off the case every time I need to use a car charger or the adapter. I wish I could open up the bottom of the case without ruining the case.

    need more color choice

    • Written by from Middletown

    I bought the red one tonight. It fits perfectly and feels good too. However, the color choices are not very good. The red is exceptable, but it really is too orangey. Where is navy, dark gray, and dark green? I think pink and heather gray would be a nice option.

    Great case! But get a darker colour

    • Written by from Toronto

    I bought this case in blue and I really do love it - The cut-outs are perfect, it's light weight and has a great feel to it. However, looking back on my purchase, I was stupid to buy this in any colour other than black. I've had it for exactly a week, and already it's starting to look scuffed and dirty, which I hate. Like others have said, I imagine this would happen with any colour other than black because of the material. I can't start the dirty look, so this will likely be taken off my phone soon. Waste of money.

    Best case by far!!

    • Written by from PLAINVIEW

    This is the best case I have ever purchased for any of my iPhones. I have owned everything from an otter box, life proof, incepio, and by far this the sleekest and best overall. The case feels amazing in your hand,(can't stop rubbing it lol) It has this felt like material on the inside, that way your corners of your phone and back won't get worn out like it has from other cases I've used. Whenever I bought a case for my iphone in the past, I'm always switching back and fourth because nothing pleases me, and always wished apple would make their own case for their phones. Finally the day is here!! I highly recommend this case

    Great feel, no headphones

    • Written by from Dallas

    The look and feel of this case is great. It stays on well, but it a little hard to remove. However, Apple refuses to acknowledge that people want to use headphones or earbuds besides the ones they include, so the hole for the headphone jack is too small for most things out there. The jack for my Bose noise-canceling headphones and also my Bose earbuds are both too big to fit with this case on. Also, a cord that I use for an aux-in on my stereo doesn't fit, either. It's really disappointing that Bose does so many things well, but falls down on such simple things.

    Nice elegant case

    This case was just what I was looking for. Very professional appearance and sleek which fits the phone perfectly. Case feels good when up to your ear unlike the silicone cases I owned before. A++

    Extremely difficult to remove

    • Written by from Montreal

    The case is beautiful and feels great. It is, however, extremely snug to the point where if you change your case often you will undergo a bit of a struggle (I have a wallet-case which I switch to when I leave the house, so changing my case happens several times a day). I worry the thin case will crack as I pry it off. It has a death grip on that phone. Plus, it pushes down on the lock button when you remove it from the top, and your phone will try to turn off.

    If you intend to keep your case on "permanently," this is 10/10.

    Worst apple product I ever bought.

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    Great Case

    • Written by from Washington

    I read the reviews and decided to go ahead and purchase the brown leather case for my white iphone. I really like the way that it looks.

    It's a case, so there are sometimes compromises in that it does not work exactly the way that it used to. Some 3rd party lightning ports don't work, which is a bummer.

    The case also ages because it's made of leather. Some people really don't like that. It's not clear the case is going to save your phone if you run it over with a mack tuck, but then again, how often are you really in that situation?

    But all in all, the case fits the phone PERFECTLY, maintaining a very slim profile. I got this case to cover up all the nicks and scratches a year and a half of use can cause, and it does a great job. The case also makes my phone soft, which is a nice touch. So, I give it 4 stars for being a solid case. Sure, it's got flaws - but no case is perfect.

    Tight squeeze

    • Written by from Dannebrog

    The tight fit is worth it! I bought the camel brown case about a month ago. Put it on as soon as I got it and just took it off for the first time. No dirt, no crumbs, no dust! I do not baby my phone, it's had plenty of opportunities to get junk between it and the cover. In fact, the reason why I bought this case is because my previous off-brand case scratched the back of my phone less than a day after getting the new 5s.

    Outside of the tight fit, my case has shown signs of hand grease in the places where I hold the phone the most (the sides), not at all surprising with the leather exterior. I think it shows a worn leather look.

    I recommend this case to everybody looking for a case that will keep the junk away from their phone, who likes a unique look, and someone whose proud of showing off the Apple emblem on the back!

    Fit is great. Color/wear is awful

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Bought this attractive case for my new gold phone. It looked great for about 24 hours. After a day of storing it in my jeans pocket the edges of the case all took on a dark greay from the denim so the case looked worn and dirty, not patina, just grimy. Very dissappointing.

    I bought a hard leather case elsewhere and do not have the same problem.

    Only use this case for show.

    • Written by from richmond

    The case is very pretty and perfectly fitting for the iPhone, however this is NOT an every day protective case. This case should be worn only for show and occasions, not for the every day use. Unless you get a black case, the leather becomes worn very easily and can not be cleaned. When using a Magic Eraser, the darkening and wear of the leather becomes lighter and less visible, however after touching it, it will darken again. If you plan on getting this case, use with caution. I bought both the blue and beige variations, and both have become extremely worn and dirty within a few weeks.

    Perfect Fit Perfect Case

    • Written by from Inver Grove Heights

    I don't understand most of these reviews....the brown leather case is a classy choice. It fits perfectly and snug. All the openings are in just the right locations and because the case is thin it does not add to the width of the phone just like it should be. It does rise up a little from the front screen which is what it should do when resting the phone face down on a table or desk to protect the screen. I have never removed mine since first installing it, I could see that the edges might get loose if you are constantly taking it on and off but you should not need to. The leather ages just like leather should, you can take a soft dish towel with a little water to clean it up by rubbing gently on the surface, it will dry and be clean. All of the ports are cut open exactly in the right place so I don't know why people are reporting issues there. This works for me perfectly and I like the look and feel of the quality of the leather. Get one!

    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.
