    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!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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!!!

    Save your money!

    • Written by from Abilene

    This case is garbage. I got the beige one and I've had it on my 5s for about a week and a half, and it looks terrible. The leather is wearing down and is grungy/discolored, and has actually ripped around the edges just from taking the case on and off the few times I've had to use an adapter (which doesn’t with the case on) to charge my phone. I've purchased several other brands of cases that I used for well over a year and still looked brand new. This one looks nice in the package, but don't waste your money on it...it won't last!

    Incredibly disappointed with the quality of the case

    • Written by from Sparks

    The cases are absolutely gorgeous, until you've had them on your phone a couple of days. I tried the blue one, as well as the beige one - both cases experience heavy discoloration around ALL the edges, and the center of the back. I keep my phone on my desk or in my pocket most of the day, so I'm not sure how the cases get discolored so quickly. Even going with a more natural case (beige over blue) the discoloration is obvious, and makes my $850 phone look cheap and disgusting.

    I wish I could upload a picture of the case after usage, but alas, this isn't Amazon. If you don't mind spending $40 on a new case every month, then feel free to purchase this one. From what I gather in the rest of the reviews, the black one doesn't have nearly as bad discoloration as the other colors.

    Major FAIL

    • Written by from BROOKLYN

    This case in a week looks like cr@p! The thin layer of beige color rubbed off, revealing a nasty gray-brown layer. It looked so bad, that I opted to go bare until getting another case. I have never left my iPhone without a case until now.

    It was also impossible to remove and left sore fingers for me in the process. Eventually it snapped on the bottom, where it has all the port holes.

    I regret spending anything on this piece of junk...

    Beautiful case, but poor quality and signs of wear after only a week.

    • Written by from Anchorage

    I just bought this case and really like the look and feel, although the quality is lacking as it's falling apart after very limited use. Too bad.

    Worst case ever

    • Written by from Frisco

    I was so excited when I bought this case because it was so beautiful and was advertised to offer quality protection. My excitement quickly shriveled to anger. The beige color quickly started to turn grey on the first day I had the case on my phone. Even rubbing the case would streak the once beige color to grey. Soon the case was grotesque and almost completely grey. People are surprised when I tell them that the case was once beige. Not only did the durability of the color prove to be inadequate but the protection aspect soon proved worthless. It is inconceivable that this case is an apple product.
