    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.

    I bought this case about 2 months prior of it release and when I first put it on I fell in love. It was sleek, smooth, not bulky at all, I was shocked. I told myself I would not buy another case ever again. Oh I spoke too soon. This case started wearing or changing color the next day and I was furious. I would try to cleaning cloth and it seemed to go away but then when you'd try to dry it off then it would get bigger and darker. So i went back to the apple store and returned it. Maybe i'll give it another try. maybe the black one this time.

    Excellent fitment but gets dirty relatively quickly

    • Written by from Elmhurst

    The leather on the case feels great and looks great when brand new. I purchased the case the day they came out so I've had it on my phone for a little over two months now and just within the past couple weeks, it has really started to show the dirt. I work from a home office so I'm not out during the day and my phone just sits on my desk. It really shows the dirt around the edge on the face (I place my phone screen side down) as well as where your fingers/palm hold the phone on the backside. The case fits great and is very snug so no issue with protection. I haven't dropped it so I don't know how it would hold up that way. Overall a great case but if I could buy again, I'd get a black one. This color is just too light and shows way too much grime.

    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.

    Appauling quality!

    • Written by from Manly

    Less than 24hrs on phone and this case looks like it's been dragged across gravel road for a few miles.
    Within an hour of being on the phone, the face corners wore off, closely followed by the rear corners. The phone was sat in my suit jacket pocket which is hardly abrasive.
    very disappointing quality for a $50 case. Unless you want to throw nearly $50 away, do NOT buy this case!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Looks Great Until You Use It

    Had this case on all of 2 days before it started to look about two months old. Very poor quality - DO NOT BUY!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    good case, bad color

    • Written by from Birmingham

    The case fits well and isn't bulky but the beige color gets dirty too easily. I've tried cleaning it but the dirt and spots don't come off. I would recommend the case but in another color

    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!

    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.

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