    Fits well but lacks durability

    • Written by from Florence

    Purchased the case on Friday to go with my new 5S, case fits the phone really well, and feels nice to the touch, however the quality of the material of VERY POOR. After just 2 days corners of the case started to show signs of wear and tear, it looks like as if the "leather" started to peel off the case. Do not recommend!!!!

    Great Leather Case - Worthy of the iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    This is a great case that is quality leather. I liked it so much that I bought 3 cases. It is the first case I've owned that is quality enough for an iPhone. Love the Apple logo on the back. The price is good and for only $10 more than most other cases you get nice leather that feels great in your hand. Because of the quality it will last a lot longer than those other cheap cases. It provides great protection for your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5. Only negative is that it is a little snug and tough to remove. However if you pop off the two bottom corners and then flip it over and pull, it comes off pretty easy. Great job Apple!!!

    Just got this for my white 5, and it looks, feels and functions great! I was worried the color might get dirty quickly, but the texture seems to repel stains, I think it will last well. It feels like great protection, covering the buttons and corners and going a bit above the glass. It's super lightweight, feels like nothing on it weight wise, just a nice texture. Feels great in the hand, not slippery, but also not "sticky" like leather could be going into your pockets. Definitely worth the price.

    Beautiful .... At first

    • Written by from Mississauga

    This case is the most gorgeous colour, but it's so light that after two days of use it got so dirty around the edges.
    Apple should have thought of how this colour would appear after use.
    It does say on the label that the leather will change colour, but this was just gross black dirt on the edges, not some type of effect after breaking it in.

    Should maybe be lacquered so the dirt can't permeate the leather so easily.

    Exchanged it and got the black, wish it didn't get so dirty so fast

    Sadly disappointed

    • Written by from Northport

    While I love the look of this color - it starts to get dirty FAST. I have had it less than 48 hours and it looks terrible. I am very careful with my phones, even with a case, but the edges are already turning dark and it looks as if I've had it for months. So upset because it looked great on my black 5s. Will be taking it back today. Just an additional side note - it is not easy to remove this case once it's on - in fact its a bit of a struggle - so if you like to change your cases often to others you may have (like I do), this is not the case for you....sadly disappointed.

    Wears out extremely quickly

    • Written by from Oshkosh

    My case arrived on Tuesday, so I've had it for 3 days now. Already, the leather appears to be wearing off on all edges. My phone is always either in my pocket, or on a desk when I'm not using it. I take extremely good care of it. Looked fantastic the first day, but after 3 days it looks horrible. Looks like I've had it for years, not days. I'm extremely disappointed in this case.

    I bought this beige iphone5s "leather" case last night and am returning it today. The quality of this case is horrible and cheap. EVERY corner of the case and the entire front ridge of it is discolored and wearing away already, remind you I bought this last night. It's only 6pm today.

    Love the case, but not worth it.

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I bought this case because I fell in love with the color & texture of the leather. However, a big drawback is that this case starts to change colors and wears within the first couple of days. I put mine in my back pocket and the color of the jeans rubbed onto the case and turned it slightly blue. Also, the corners are already beginning to turn grayish/brownish and I've only had it for 3 days.

    A bit dissapointed

    • Written by from Belmont

    I purchased the beige one. It looked all nice but it gets dirty really fast around the corners and the buttons. I tried to clean it but that made it look worse and it looks like the leather is wearing off.

    Beware Beige case

    • Written by from Northwood

    Case if great but.... have to unfortunately agree with other reviews here, the beige case gets dirty very quickly and of more concern is the leather as its peeling off our case after just three days of use. Its going back tomorrow.

    Something's Not Right

    • Written by from Saint Charles

    Like many others, I'm disappointed with this case. After very limited and careful (clean hands only) use, this case looks and feels bad. I think the leather is so thin the adhesive is coming through it on the side where it sits in your hand. It has a very tacky/sticky feel to it and it's turning a dull gray along the edges instead of that nice light brown.

    I've had other leather products do this but after several years of use. This is clearly not an acceptable design.

    Recommendation: Do Not buy.

    Look great on my gold 5S but only lasted for less than a week... the leather gets dirty and scratch easily. Waste of money.

    Got my 5s last Thursday and put this new case on. After a day, my case looked horrific! Sides are dirty grey and it just looks like a need a new case. For the amount paid I am sooo dissapointed :-(
    Apple should issue refunds and discontinue this color if so many other buyers have the same problem. I want my money back so I can purchase a case that lasts longer than 1 day!!

    Already on my second case!

    • Written by from houston

    I wish I didn't have to make this review, but was compelled to do so. WARNING! Aniline leather does not fair well, especially if you're pulling your phone out of your jean pocket frequently as my beige colored one started to show dark marks on the corners and edges after 3 days of use! Be prepared to buy leather cleaners/conditioners to maintain the case. With that said though I still am very happy with it since the case wraps on my 5s like a glove and I like the buttery feel of the leather. I just wish I didn't have to watch how I handle the phone since I'm always worried I'd scratch it and have the same marks show up again :( I replaced my beige to the brown just in case it gets marked up it'll at least blend with brown better. I would've given this 5 but since I had to swap it so I knocked it down a couple.

    Discoloration makes it look dirty

    • Written by from Houston

    When I first got it, I loved it. That lasted about 3 days. The leather starts to discolor. I have the beige and the discoloration is like a brown which makes it appear dirty. I hate it now!

    Fits fine but quality is very poor.

    • Written by from Johns Creek

    Initially looked great but Beige color started to fade and it look as case is dirty after two days. After few days of use corners starting to wear off. Beige is light color so you will notice right away. Will not recommend to anybody. Very poor quality case.

    Waste of $40

    • Written by from North Babylon

    The edges after two days look beat up and worn like I dropped it or dragged it across concrete. I'm meticulous with my phone and I want a refund but once you give Apple money they never give it back. It's also extremely hard to take off, thought I was going to break my phone. Do not buy!!!
