    shows dirt

    • Written by from Uniontown

    The light color of the case shows dirt. Cannot put in denim pocket, or the case will come out looking like you dipped it in dirt. I only used this case for a week and it was so dirty looking. Maybe the darker color cases would be better. I just wanted a lighter color to go with my gold 5s.

    Not worth the money - AT ALL

    • Written by from Lakewood

    Beautiful looking leather case. Fun colors. Makes you want to buy two. However, for the cost, this case is ZERO practical. It fits well and seems to protect well (I haven't been in a situation where it has been tested) but it does not maintain color of sheen at all. It becomes dirty within days. I got the lighter color case, BIG mistake. It's filthy and you can't clean it without damaging and staining the leather further. It looks like a germ brick after less than a month. Apple sells way better cases, go for one of those.

    better for Apple to manufacture only iphone

    • Written by from Brescia

    the touch is great but the quality is terrible. After one week is dirty, become green and cannot wash it. So now looks terrible and I use again my old plastic case

    Beige 5S case

    • Written by from New York

    The beige case is not worth the money at all, it gets easily dirty and blackened. I recommend buying either the red or black case. Or a cheaper transparent bumper case if you want to show off the new iPhone.

    Great case - we don't see the "dirt" or durability problems

    • Written by from Los Altos

    These cases are great. We have a beige one on my wife's 5 and i have a dark one on my 5s. The "problems" noted here about durability and the case getting dirty make no sense. Makes me wonder if the case manufacturers (who may not be happy about Apple coming out with such a nice case) are posting here.

    It is true that after two weeks the lightest color case (beige) will get a little dirty. But the dirt washes off. And if you don't want to do that just get a brown, black or dark blue one which don't show dirt.

    The cool thing about these cases is they just feel nice, look nice, protect the phone, and they are so thin that you still get that sleek, thin iPhone 5/5s "feel" even with a case! I have resisted putting cases or bumpers on my iPhone in the past because i hated covering up how gorgeous the phone is. But these cases solve that. And its just $39 which is great.

    Wears Poorly

    • Written by from Armonk

    I really wanted to love this case. It fits beautifully, and looked great for the first hour. Within a few weeks, all of the corners have rubbed raw/dark brown, as have the edges all the way around the front and back. It looks awful - will need to be replaced before it is two months old.

    i thought it was suppose to fit perfectly

    • Written by from Walnut

    it doesn't. at least not for mine. the sides were a bit lose and does not wrap around my 5s perfectly like it said it would so that was disappointing. but the feel and color is great.

    Slightly disappointed

    • Written by from Woodstock

    Received the case today. Fits awesome, feels nice and looks great. However, I had my phone in my back pocket for all of 20 minutes and my blue jeans rubbed blue onto it. Super frustrating, especially considering the price. Maybe another color would have been better.

    Charger doesn't fit

    • Written by from Perrysburg

    Purchased this case today. My car charger plug doesn't fit through the case; the adapter I bought for my 4S docking station also does not fit through the case to the point that the phone won't charge with either. I plan to return the case asap.

    Great fit and feel.

    Beige/white 5
    I'm actually looking forward to seeing how my case wears while it keeps my phone pristine.
    More comfortable and easier to hold without adding bulk.

    Was a 5 star review until recently

    • Written by from Dollar

    I have the brown leather case and have absolutely loved it for the bast 8 months. Strongly advised it to all my mates who have asked as i adored it. Until last month. The case no longer fits securely on the iPhone, I dont know if its stretched because its leather, but it now slides off very easily. I did not think this was a big problem though until I accidentally dropped it. It was a small drop onto concrete, however, it was face down. Picked it up thinking nothing of it as it happened all the time and the case had always protected it, but then after turning it over I saw that the screen was completely smashed and the phone was pretty much out of the case. Was not impressed, rest of the phone doesn't have a scratch on it due to the micro-fiber on the inside of the case and the case is beautiful, however, now I have a iPhone with a smashed screen and I need to pay £140 to get the screen replaced by Apple due to their own product not lasting.

    LACKS DURABILITY - a review in verse

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    Do not buy the iPhone 5s leather case from Apple™ like me. You will take it to museums, and parks, and monuments, and hold it in every beautiful place, the leather wearing down even if you lay a finger on it, so that it can never go back to its original colour without you buying a new one. It will peel in the most beautiful way possible. And after you’ve had it for three weeks, you will finally understand, why you shouldn’t buy the iPhone 5s leather case from Apple™ like me.

    Don't do it.

    • Written by from Long Island City

    I agree with the other reviewers. I bought the case to go with my champagne/white iphone. It looked amazing when I put it on, but within the first day the leather was already beginning to wear off on the corners and edges. Now that I've had it a couple weeks it looks horrific. And yes, like the other reviewers, I tend to take care of my things....this case is not made well.

    Case lasted 1 week

    • Written by from canoga park

    The case only lasted 1 week. It was damaged just from placing the phone down, it's super light which is nice but it looks really bad once it gets damaged. I ended up getting a new case after just 2 weeks. I wish it was more durable.

    Aweful

    • Written by from Olmsted Falls

    Case fits the phone perfect and snug. The quality of the case is terrible... After a couple days the leather begins to run off around the edges and the buttons and just starts to look worn very quickly. For the amount of money that this case cost it is definitely not worth it at all.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Salem

    I am very disappointed with this case. First of all it looks great. It is beautiful when you just put it on the phone and it feels great but I haven't even had it for 2 days and its already showing signs of wear. It looks like the leather is starting to rub of on one of the sides. It was pretty expensive that I did not think that this would happen to it so quickly. I have been very careful with my phone so it is not a matter of me not being careful. It really is just very poor quality. I would not recommend buying it. Again, very disappointed.

    Apple "leather case?

    • Written by from BELMONT

    I bought the Apple-branded black leather case and I think it feels like rubber on the outside. The inside has a "nubuck" sort of look and feel. But the outside doesn't feel like leather to me and it is a bit slippery but not terribly so. Maybe it will break in like leather does. For $39 this should be a knock-out case and I am still on the fence. My wife bought the blue leather version and loves it. So definitely in the "hand" of the beholder! Time will tell. Fit is excellent and the weight and size is quite reasonable with the feel of very good protection.
