    Amazingly high quality slim case

    • Written by from San diego

    This case is well worth my $40. I've tried endless amounts of cases on my iPhone 5 and I'm so glad Apple finally released their own version. The fitment couldn't be any better considering it's made by apple. The leather is a little smooth but provides much more grip than going naked. The quality of the leather is so soft, I'm looking forward to see how the leather ages and becomes a distressed look. The buttons and holes all match up so perfectly, I didn't expect any less from Apple.

    Wow

    • Written by from choctaw

    Probably the best iPhone case I've had to date. The suede inside prevents dust from acting as a lubricant where the abrasion effect occurs, and the fit is uncanny. The fitting of this case allows for the user to see the metal band around the phone, which I find very, very, very, very esthetically pleasing. The case fits very tightly which is wonderful. I feel like this case won't wear out very soon. I will do a review once I have used it for a couple of months. Amazing job on this case. Fits the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 perfectly!

    Exactly what I've been waiting for

    • Written by from San Diego

    I purchased the brown and this case fits perfect on my white iPhone 5. Feels great in the hand and has a smooth button action. I will defiantly pick up additional colors. Great price for a great product. This is my third leather case (Jcrew and Restoration Hardware) and now my favorite. This case is a little difficult to remove but that could just be because I didn't want to pop my phone out and it fall, but working the corners does the trick.

    Best case ever made for any phone....

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Very impressed with the flawless construction. Snug fit so don't expect to take it on and off easily, tho that should not be an issue with most users.

    Be warned: The 5s with this case cannot be used in the new Apple iPhone 5s dock :(

    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!!!

    Nothing Tops This One

    • Written by from Union City

    I have gone through several iPhone 5 cases from other name brands that just never seemed to satisfy what I was looking for. I either found cases that were super light and thin but they did not cover or protect the chamfered edges. If I found one that covered the chamfered edges, it was too bulky and/or hid the beauty of iPhone. I picked up this guy in black the day I got the 5s and I was absolutely amazed at the amount of protection it offers for those of us who do not abuse our precious iPhones. It covers the chamfered edges beautifully while still allowing the chamfers to glisten and it is so light weight yet incredibly durable. Also, its made of leather so the quality is definitely there. Good job Apple for finally giving us a case that is worth every penny!

    A very classy case... obviously a Jony Ive design.

    • Written by from Louisville

    I ordered both the silver iPhone 5s and the black 5s case from the online Apple Store. The iPhone 5s arrived on Wednesday. The iPhone case arrived today.

    I could not be more pleased with either purchase. I have owned the iPhone since the first model (specifically: the 1st and 2nd iterations, the 4, and now the 5s). I have also owned SENA leather cases. SENA makes a fine leather product. This is the first iPhone case that rivals SENA's products, IMO.

    Most of the criticisms I have read of the iPhone 5s case are simply nitpicking. I find the tactile response of the volume controls and on/off button to be just fine. The case is close fitting (a good thing for drop protection) and not THAT difficult to remove. A couple of YouTube reviews of the case demonstrate the optimal procedure for removing the case. It takes me about 15 seconds.

    As for the staining and scuff issues... this is analine leather, folks. Go online and do a bit of research. The result is a non-glossy, buttery-feeling, fine leather case. Yes, it will absorb both finger oil and dirt over time. The package cautions that the appearance will change over time. That is the nature of the beast. Some people consider this to be a "feature" of the material. It acquires patina and character over time.

    I also find the iPhone 5s case to be comparable in price to similar SENA snap-on leather cases.

    In summary: A classy leather case that will provide moderate drop protection. A winner!

    Great case

    • Written by from North Chesterfield

    Most negatives I've read are about being hard to keep clean which I have not had that problem at all with the black version and that it's hard to take off which it is not if you use both thumbs and take out the bottom corners one at a time. The black case is professional looking and has just enough grip and protection while remaining slim enough to fit easily in pockets. I like it a lot and would definitely recommend.

    Elegant style, perfect fit and finish but pricy

    • Written by from Honolulu

    The Apple Store offered me $183 trade-in allowance for my old iPhone 4s so I decided to splurge on an iPhone 5s with Black Leather case. Indeed, this is the nicest iPhone case I've seen: supple leather of consistent texture, handsome appearance and perfect fit. The design is understated, simple and elegant. It does not detract from the slender form factor and basically feels like an integral part of the phone. It also feels wonderful in the hand: warm and natural but with just the right amount of texture and grip.

    Protection it is minimal--similar to a decent light duty plastic shell case--and should take light knocks without flinching. The case feels like it is made of a thin plastic shell wrapped in leather and lined with fuzzy micro fiber cloth. I'm impressed the volume buttons can be covered in leather and yet work perfectly. Forty bucks is a lot of bread to drop on a phone case. But then many other 5s cases looked cheap and plastic and cost nearly as much. If you enjoy the owning the best and prefer a case that complements rather than shouts, this just may be the one for you. I really like it and consider it money well spent.

    FINALLY...a case worthy of my iPhone 5

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    After getting my iPhone 5, I immediately went in search of a case. I'm a "normal" user, and don't intend to take my iPhone swimming, mountain biking, or going into battle. I just wanted a nice case that will reasonably protect my iPhone as I go about my day-to-day life. Side comment - I do not use a screen protector. The screen is "gorilla glass," and has stood up great during my first year of use.

    Back to the search for a case. I'm embarrassed to say what I've spent searching for the ideal case. But I can say that I've now found the case that works for me. I've tried all the major brands...expensive, and cheap...thick ones...thin ones. I read all the reviews, talked to other iPhone users. And then I stumbled on this case in the Apple Store. No, it's not cheap. No, it's not "padded." But I love how it fits like a glove, I love how the leather feels and looks, I love the colors (I have black & red), and I love the quality. I've had this case for a good nine months, and the leather is showing the very slightest bit of wear, but that adds character. For me, this is head and shoulders above all the other cases I tried. If only I'd found this case on day one. Without question, when I get another iPhone...I will quickly go in search of this particular case. It works for me, and I don't hesitate to recommend it.

    High-quality case

    • Written by from Atlanta

    Just got this case (black) for my black iPhone 5 yesterday.

    The leather feels great. The case fits so snug on the phone, doesn't slip at all and feels very sturdy. I've had 4 cases for my 5 before this, and this is by far the best. Covers all the important parts, and has the lip on front too to protect it when you lay the phone flat on a surface.

    I'm planning to get a white 5s in February, and I'm excited to be able to use this case on that phone as well.

    Luxurious protection

    • Written by from Waterloo

    I just got my space gray 5S delivered and got the black leather case to accompany with it. I must say it is absolutely gorgeous. Slim form factor, very soft and luxurious to hold and love the very subtle logo on the back.

    The best part for me though was how the buttons are also very nicely protected and the case on the whole snaps on really snug. I saw reviews on the other colours not that great, but if you're going to get the black it's highly recommended.

    The phone works just fine after being run over by a taxi cab, no scratches. Gets the job done and looks good too. Nuff said.

    The best case I've ever owned

    • Written by from Brampton

    The 5S is my third iPhone, and I have researched/purchased several cases over the years. My case of choice for the last few years has been the Speck CandyShell. Although a little bulky, I thought it looked sleek, offered great fall protection, protected the body of the device, and had a lip on the front (to ensure the phone’s screen doesn’t touch a surface when face down).

    Apple’s iPhone 5S case still offers these important features, but does so in an elegant way. The case is light weight and looks amazing (I chose the black case to compliment the Space Grey iPhone). It smells like leather, but doesn’t have that obvious leather texture. It has a very small lip on the front to protect the screen, and has a thin layer of felt inside to protect the phone. I’m confident the case will protect my phone quite well if it falls, but unsure it has the durability to prevent anything more. If you require a water resistant case, or expect your phone will take a good amount of abuse, this case likely will not offer the level of protection you require.

    I highly recommend, as this is the best case I’ve ever owned.

    Elegant, slim, and understated.

    • Written by from New York

    Yet, feels very cozy and natural to the touch, much like a Moleskine notebook. I love that this case is light. The tiny black plastic escutcheon surrounding the camera adds to the elegant appearance of the case as well as to its functionality by limiting lint accumulation around the camera. The black case is pretty gender-neutral. The screen is safely protected by the slightly raised front edge. The phone sits firmly in the case and there's just the right amount of space for the power and audio jacks. A nice visual touch is the exposed silver outline of the phone's side-band between the leather edge and the glass.

    Perfect case

    The case fits perfectly and is thin enough to be unobtrusive. It has a gentle grip to make holding the iphone easier. I've dropped my phone a few times and it does indeed provide protection to the sides and corners.
