    Worns quickly

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    Not even a month since I brought this case. It has already worn out on the edges and looks awful. Very hard to remove as well. Mute/Unmute button above the volume buttons is not easily accessible unless you tilt the phone or have bigger nails. Little bit more pressing required if you want to switch off the phone. Edges don't allow you to use the phone in a flexible manner (specially if you have any games like Real Race etc)

    I wish I can give Zero stars to this product.

    Note: Not sure about the Torn out issue for other colors

    Terrible materials and design...avoid like the plague!!

    • Written by from Greensburg

    This case looked great when I purchased it, but the leather is terrible quality and gets grimy after only a few days of regular use (I know leather is supposed to get a nice patina but this leather absorbs every single bit of grime that it possibly can). Also, the case is almost impossible to take off, which is something that I now do quite often because the tiny hole does not allow aftermarket headphones to plug into it. Oh and say goodbye to you're sleep/wake button because this case doesn't allow it to be used. This is by far the worst product that Apple has ever manufactured.

    Nice Case, but only works with apple headphones

    • Written by from Østerås

    Overall the case looks nice. There are some small fails with the leather that I wouldn't excpect to see in an Apple product. But the biggest problem is that only works with apple head-phone jack (back to iPhone 1).

    imPossible to use with adapter or dock or take off

    • Written by from San Diego

    It looks brilliant and feels warm and wonderful in the hand. Since I have so many cords from my other iPhone I just bought an extra cord and an adaptor. The adaptor won't work with the 5s leather case. Now I can't get the case off. It won't fit in any dock. Didn't Apple notice? I'll keep the beautiful brown cover not just because I like it - I can't get it off and I can't find anyone to tell me how.

    I got the lighter beige color and after a week the "leather" gets so dirty and worn. Can't clean it. Easily dents when dropped. Waste of money- after a month, I'm getting a new cover.

    Don't get anything but black- colors get dirty quickly

    • Written by from Calgary

    I bought the Red version as I love red. After a couple weeks I noticed the backside getting black (especially the edges). I am a neat freak and clean my hands all the time. The leather is nice if you don't touch it. Not sure if putting a leather protectant on it would help either. For me, it's too late, you can't even clean the case as the color will come off but not the dirt. Not sure if all leather cases regardless of it being Apple made will be any different. Very dissapointed- hopefully it is something this is covered under my iPhone AppleCare warranty. Going for black the next time.

    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

    Love this case!

    • Written by from Milltown

    I just bought this case (in black) yesterday to go over my white iphone 5. I was hesitant at first because I felt like the case barely came around the edge of the phone and could fall right off, but it's actually incredibly sturdy and covers all the areas I want it to without being too bulky on the phone like most cases seem to be. I'm happy I made this purchase!

    I bought this product because I needed a new case for my iPhone 5s. The case fits the phone really well and looked beautiful, until about 2 days later where the leather became very dirty, it looks nothing like it did before. The side buttons all work well and I did drop my phone from waist high and the cover did what it was supposed to so I guess I'd rather deal with a dirty case than a shattered phone. Other than that it's entirely up to you.

    Complete waste of money!

    • Written by from Bloomington

    The leather brown color looked great for about a month. Then it became dirty and discolored. When I tried to clean it with plain water the leather finish came off in spots and now it is plain ugly. What a waste of money. Certainly not up to Apple's usual quality control and standards.

    Very pleased...

    • Written by from Waycross

    To be honest I had reservations about this case as the lip that runs around the bezel of the case was not very substantial in reviews that I watched on YouTube. After receiving the case I am so much more than pleased with it. The lip actually goes a little farther than I expected and WOW is all I can say when it comes to looks and fit. I have had an iPhone from the 4s and up and have used many cases but this BY FAR is my favorite and exclusive case now. I don't know why Apple didn't make them from the get go. The leather provides a bit of a tacky feel which is very nice in the hand it provides moderate grip with a still smooth and a bit of a tactile feel to it. The fit is needless to say like a glove, once on, the lip that raises just above the tampered edge of the phone sits about a 64th of an inch away from the metal bezel so you get a very custom fit look. The camera cut out is EXACT which, on other cases too me at least, has been the clunkier part of the 3rd party case. ALL IN ALL AN OUTSTANDING FEEL AND LOOK WITH GOOD PROTECTION! My new favorite case.

    Beautiful case but doesn't last

    • Written by from San Jose

    I was very excited about the new 5S case when it first came out because it is one of the rare beautiful and classy case I've seen in a while. I got the beige one despite my husband warning me it will get dirty very quickly. Well, he was right. But not only that, the leather on all corners and edges of the case also started wearing out and loosing color after just one month of normal usage. Knowing that a smart phone is heavily used by any user on a day to day basis, Apple should make something more sturdy than this.

    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.

    Love it but more colors please.

    • Written by from Anchorage

    I want to protect my phone, but I do not like the bulkiness or feel of most cases. I love this leather case (red), it fits tight to my iPhone 5S, and feels great, and provides moderate protection. It is not waterproof; however, if you use your phone in the outdoor elements, but otherwise wonderful for everyday use. I request that Apple makes these in more desirable colors that match the new I phone 5S, such as in silver, gold, or most particularly in in dark purple or burgundy; the most sought after color by most women. The same request I have for iPad covers. Please make them in purple!

    Great, but not for Headphones

    • Written by from Oakville

    Looks great, feels comfortable, fits snugly, but is really hard to use any other type of headphone jack other than Apple's because of the small hole allowing access.

    I really love this case

    • Written by from WESTLAKE VILLAGE

    I purchased the black case as the lighter colored cases appear to get dirty fairly quickly. (my wife has a blue one) I actually purchased it for my iPhone 5 and it fit perfectly. The buttons were in place and there were no issues whatsoever. I usually hate cases but this one feels really nice in the hand. It has that suave leather feel and, for the first time ever, I would prefer to have the case on my phone. I have used my last two iPhones naked. It's nice to see Apple making a case with attention to materials. It seems insane to me now that someone would cover their glass/aluminum phone with a hunk of plastic... I would recommend this product.

    Not worth $40.00

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I got this case 4 weeks ago for my iPhone 5S in Black color. It looked great first 2 weeks but after that, it started to get scratches, to catch dirt & oil marks. It also looks old as the leather looks very dull after few weeks.There are many designer ware cases available for less than $40 & they work better than this case. The value of this case is not worth the price.

    I wish I could love it!

    • Written by from Norwalk

    The case(s) made by Apple are sleek, and fit very comfortably on the new iPhone. Overall, I love then feel and look of the case. The downfall? It get's dirty within seconds! This case does not hold it's value at all. I really want to love this product, as I love the look, but it gets dirty very easily and at the end of the day is not worth the money unfortunately. See the other reviews, dirty - too fast.

    Just purchased Brown case for 5s

    • Written by from Melville

    I purchased this case for my new iPhone 5s. It is outstanding. I had originally purchased a heavy-duty, thick, rubberized case. But it took away from the style of the phone and the elegance of Apple's design.

    The installation was a snap, literally. My phone slid right in and the case surrounded the phone like a glove. It's thin, it provides for an excellent tactile feel and grip. It offers excellent protection for the rear, sides, top and bottom, and prevents the glass touchscreen from coming in direct contact with a surface, such as a countertop, when laid downward.

    In regard to accessory fit, I've found even my oversized, aftermarket "lighted" lightning cable fits, as do my after market "L" shaped headphone plugs. There is no need to worry about your headphones not fitting, in my personal opinion. I've had every version of iPhone since the 3G and I've used dozens of different cases. They all have their pros and cons.

    But, by far, in my opinion, this is the classiest case Apple has ever released for the iPhone. I disagree with those who have commented that the case feels like "pleather." To me, it feels like high grade, well tanned, genuine leather, that will break in overtime. Many have commented about the case becoming overly dirty. I haven't found that to be the case. When I've gripped the case with grimy hands (after fixing a window) I did leave some greasy residue on the case, but it came right off with a soft wet sponge, using water, and nothing else. I do not know if the case is stain resistant. But, scotchgard, or other leather protectants, are always an option, for those who are using very light colored cases.

    Overall, this case brings a lot to the table. Highly recommended.
