    Don't buy a brown one

    • Written by from Mickleover

    I have rated the case 3 as I have had a brown one (1star) a black one (5star). The brown one just looks dirty if you keep it in your jeans pocket. You cannot clean it.
    The black one is just great and better feel than brown. No marks or dark edges making it look dirty.

    No grip

    • Written by from Hay River

    The leather case is too soft. It slides out of my fingers. I prefer to have some slight grip. I put this case in a drawer a week after I got it.

    Looks great but not durable

    • Written by from hartford

    It's a great looking case and thin. I've had mine only one week and the top part above the charger hole already cracked.

    Careful with color selection.

    • Written by from Dunlap

    I purchased the brown leather case for my iPhone 5s. After a couple of weeks of wear and use, the case is turning a dark and tainted color brown. I would highly recommend the black case. Other than the color, the case fits like a glove and protects your iPhone investment very well.

    Love my case

    • Written by from Onalaska

    The case has worked very well for me and my wife. I have the black and she has the yellow.There was an issue with the power button the first day but it sorted its self out after a day. I think the leather just needed worked out. My AUX cords all fit and have never had any problems with head phones.
    The only issue is the yellow started to look dirty after a week or so. Took a leather wipe to it and it cleaned up just fine. My wife loves her's and so do I. Thank you apple.

    Light & protective case

    • Written by from CASHMERE

    I like this case a lot. It doesn't add much to the weight or dimensions of the phone, but the edges are raised just enough to protect the front when laying face down. The phone with this case is pleasant to hold and has enough grippiness to hold in hand more securely. I've already dropped my phone onto our concrete drvieway from a 4-foot height (trying to juggle too many things)--no damage to the phone! Some slight scuffs in 2 corners of the case. Although I have the light blue version, it still looks good. I'd buy this one again!

    ???????

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    How does apple make a case for a phone that won't allow a headphone jack to be plugged in? Really????? Every other case I have bought has never had this issue.

    Best case for iPhone!

    • Written by from Hattiesburg

    I've always changed cases on my iPhones pretty regularly, but I think I'll be keeping this one for a while!

    Great protection for everyday use. The leather case feels great in my hand and adds a little more to grip onto without adding any noticeable thickness to the phone at all!

    My only complaint is that it is very difficult to remove and that's necessary with some accessories. It's still got a great fit on the phone though, even after I've taken it on and off several times.

    Ridiculous Impractical Design

    • Written by from Dallas

    When this case is on, I cannot;

    1) Sit my iPhone in the dock I purchased
    2) Connect my Shure headphones

    due to the bottom connection points being inaccessible. I would imagine a large portion of iPhone users do not use the standard headphones. The dock is Apple issued. This design flaw is ridiculous.

    Not what I expect from Apple

    • Written by from Bonn

    Looks good in the store (I bought the brown one). I removed it after a few hours:

    - the beautiful iPhone does not feel good in your hands with this cover: not the texture, not the size, not the weight. Not what I am used to how an Apple product should feel when I touch it. -- (I had an apple bumper for the iPhone 4s, which felt good.)
    - already some signs of use after a couple of hours (and no, my hands were not dirty and I only had it in the pocket of my jacket and my jeans, no dirt or food in there either). Will not take more than a few days until it will start looking ugly.
    - the power button has to be pressed surprisingly hard in order to respond (and still doesn't always respond)
    - and yes, you need to know how to remove it, in order to do just that. I had to get on the internet to look up instructions. A magazine was nice enough to create a short "how-to" movie, because so many people were struggling and asking for help. So, it is a problem.

    The ONLY GOOD thing: it does not interfere with UMTS /LTE or WLAN reception -- as some other cases do

    Sorry Apple, you could do much better, this is ridiculous for 39 Euro.

    I am going back to wearing my iPhone like I believe Steve Jobs would have intended it: au naturelle.

    Great fit, and no gaps around buttons.

    • Written by from JEFFERSON

    Although a bit pricey, this case fits better than any of the after-market cases. I love the way the buttons are 'part of the case'. It eliminates the dust and dirt which would collect in those areas when using a different case.
    The case adds very little extra bulk to the phone, but adds a lot of gripping power which makes it easier to grab from a countertop, etc. Easily slides into my front jean pocket, and easy to retrieve.
    Highly recommend!

    My iphone, covered, beatifully, for a few days at least...

    • Written by from High Wycombe

    As the tagline goes, "You're covered. Beautifully." That is until you place your new-by-a-week blue leather case on a glass hotel table, not realizing there was a grease spot from someone's food and voila! My iPhone is indeed covered, beautifully, with grease-stained leather! Buyer beware' the case is harder to keep clean than your glass-and-metal iphone! And at around £35 I was not impressed with this case's ability to pick up more grease than a car mechanic!

    Looks good but quality is terrible!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Bought the light beige, fits great and looks very nice. BUT I held phone with dirty hands and went to clean the case...I took a damp soft cloth to clean off the dirt AND THE COLOR PAINT CAME RIGHT OFF! The painted coating is super cheap!!!
    I can understand scuffing a case by dropping it etc. But to have the color come off with a gentle wipe is pathetic. At $45 I expect a better product.

    The Brown is Just Okay

    • Written by from Seattle

    From a strictly functional view, this case does the job. It protects the phone from dropping and the texture from the leather aids in grip. it does not add bulk to the phone and other than the silent switch, speaker grill and earphone plug, it protects the phone from contiamients. From an asthetic point of view, the brown is a nice natural color. The case is also designed to allow the silver or gold edges to show as well. However, from longevity stand point, the case does not old up. After a week, it is lookingp dingy. A while I am glad the case protected my phone from damage (cosmetic and functional), the leather tore easily when I acidently dropped my phone when it got snagged coming out of my pocket. I therefore recommend black over the brown.

    Worth it, but not quite as "premium" as described

    • Written by from Brattleboro

    I'm not a case person, but my 5 took enough abuse from a year of case-less use that I decided to get this for my 5S. As far as fit and finish go, this is a great case for the price. It looks professional and doesn't add considerable bulk up the phone.

    The only downside is that the leather is definitely semi-aniline, so it doesn't exactly have the look and feel of real leather. I understand why Apple made this tradeoff with a product meant for mass market, but based on the product description I was expecting full aniline leather like the iPad cover.

    Great Apple case, but

    • Written by from madison

    I needed a cover for my new 5s and decided to give this one a try. I have always, always, found apple cases/covers to be nothing special and way overpriced. I can easily say this is the best iPhone cover I have used to date, going back to the original iPhone. The case has a great feel, offers protection everywhere except the screen, and fits very snug. While it's still very overpriced at $39, I don't regret the purchase at all. My only dislike, aside from the price, are the available colors. They are just plain awful. They made 6 colors and none of them are really nice. The beige has a pinkish hue and I can't imagine anyone buying it.

    To sum it up, great case, although overpriced with poor color selection.

    Would love it but...

    • Written by from Cleveland

    It won't fit the iphone 5s dock, I have heard it will not fit the lightning to 30 pin adapter, and I don't feel the wear & tear of taking it off constantly is a good idea. Looking for a better solution, it looks like I'll need to return it :(

    Extraordinary !

    • Written by from Grapevine

    Without a doubt, this case is one of the most elegant looking, supremely crafted cases I've owned yet. It fits the phone so beautifully without adding any weight or bulk to the device. Over five years, five phone and some pretty expensive cases from some exclusive leather designers; at a third the price, this case in my opinion, exceeds them all. Well done Apple !!

    Sleek, Stunning, Sophisticated, and Excellent Quality

    • Written by from Hastings On Hudson

    As other reviewers have stated, I am so happy Apple has decided to make cases again.

    Generally I hate cases because it takes away from the beauty of such a beautiful piece of technology, but Sir Ives and his team have won me over on this one. This case compliments the iPhone's beauty instead of taking away from it...

    It is definitely of quality leather and does NOT have a "slippery" surface. It slides in and out of your pocket without the risk of getting caught up on fabric (giving way to user error) while providing a look of sophistication. It completely surrounds the phone, unlike some cases that leave the top and bottom exposed, leaving it open to damage in certain areas around the metal bezel. Overall I am extremely satisfied! Well worth the money. So much so, I bought two different colors! Highly recommended.
