    Nice quality.

    • Written by from Covington

    Very nice quality case for your iPhone 5s. I decided to go with the black one on my silver iPhone 5s because the other colors will end up looking dirty over time. It was a good choice! The case feels very nice in the hand and keeps your iPhone feeling thin and light. I've had the case for about a month and it has NOT discolored. I'm not the type of person who drops my phone very often, but I have dropped it once with the case on and it did protect it from breaking. I don't think this case is really designed for drops, so if your'e the type of person who drops your phone a lot, look else where. If you're like me, this case is for you!

    Manage expectations

    • Written by from Kitchener

    There are a lot of complaints that the case doesn't protect the phone enough. I think we need to manage our expectations... If you're buying a SLIM leather 'case' for your phone, it is immediately obvious that it isn't going to protect your phone much form a drop from waist-height, let's say. If that is the kind of protection you want, I would think it's obvious to go for more cushioned, silicone, thicker cases or sleeves. I purposely bought this one because it was slim and smooth (ie can slide in and out of my pocket, unlike more rubberized styles). There is basically no padding inside the case, but it DOES have that microfibre-like stuff lining the case, which, for me, was the deciding point against some of the other kevlar or hard & thin cases. There were some good looking wooden ones, but there was no lining inside.

    My BIGGEST complaint is that some headphone plugs cannot fully plug into the jack bc the hole in the case is too small. Could just be with my particular headphones, but it is a sticking point for me. Another pair of earbuds slides into the headphone jack no problem.

    Very durable

    The leather case has been on my iphone for 1.5 years and it has held up amazingly well. The leather has not cracked nor has the dye worn off, it still looks great.. Extremely pleased with it.

    Very nice but with one huge flaw

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    This case is very nice overall. It fits perfectly, looks very sharp, and feels nice in my hand. The only big problem I have with it is that the cutout for the headphone jack is too small, so several of my audio patch cables will not fully seat. Since the case is leather, modifying the case to open up the hole isn't really an option. I am faced with the prospect of having to search around for an audio cable that is very thin to be able to fit correctly, or switching to another case. I do know however that the "amazon basic" patch cable that I have and 2 other generic cables will not fully seat when this case is being used. This is a huge problem since I use the audio patch cable to listen to music during my daily 2 hours in my car commuting. Its a shame because otherwise this case is perfect.

    This case gets dirty in a month and cannot be cleaned

    • Written by from Independence

    Looks nice, and offers great protection. However, this is a $40 case that looks embarrassing bad after owning it one month. I can't take it any longer and now I am buying a new case. The problem is it will dirty fast (on every color but black), and there is nothing that can be done to clean it.

    Not cool.

    Very Pretty

    • Written by from Birmingham

    It is a very presentable and stylish case. Though it gets SUPER dirty! Also it is a little pricy. I got it on sale for about $17, but I think the normal price is way to high. So overall it is a very nice plain case, but it has its faults.

    Great case, but not perfect

    • Written by from Richland

    Very well designed. It's comfortable to hold, looks great, and doesn't take away from the design of the iPhone. Fairly priced as well. I've dropped my phone numerous times (though never with the screen facing the ground), and the phone is still in perfect condition, with the case suffering minor scratches and bumps.
    Some things to consider:

    -Volume buttons are not perfectly designed. Even so much as a light touch can make the phone's volume buttons click and move, and although this doesn't fully 'press' the button, this can get annoying if I am holding the phone with my hand on top of them.
    -The headphone jack cutout can be too small for some headphones, requiring you to slip off the bottom of the case for them to fit.

    Besides these minor issues, this is still a great case for those who want decent protection, along with a great design and reasonable price. Highly recommended!

    Great Case

    • Written by from London

    I purchased the brown case with my brand new gold iPhone 5s. The case works great feels great and just is great in general. The only problem with the case is that the color wares and beomes dirty easily.

    I really enjoy this case.

    Good for looks, bad for protection

    • Written by from LAS CRUCES

    This case looks very good and has a nice grip but -in my experience- is no good protecting you iPhone in accidental drops.

    It has 2 clear weak spots in the area of the audio jack and the lighting cable jack. My phone had a 40 cms fall to a granite floor and was damaged in the aluminum structure (luckily the screen remained undamaged).

    Get black or get none

    • Written by from Lavallette

    I liked the case at first, slim and great look and feel but I got it in green, which was my first mistake. I only had it for a week i dropped it once and the leather already ripped. Also anything gets it dirty: the die from my pants, dirt from my hands, anything! my green leather case is a brown and blue mess. Refuse to use. I might actually like it if it was black since you would be unable to really see the dirt and scratches. I do no recommend though...

    Excellent Case!!

    • Written by from Longmont

    This case is by far the best case that I have ever owned. I am one who likes to change cases about twice a day until I purchased this case. Since Christmas of 2013 I have maybe changed my case about 5 times and each time I always return to the Apple iPhone 5s Case. Yes I would definitely recommend this case to anyone. go ahead purchase it... it will be worth it.

    Best case I've ever purchased.

    • Written by from Tegucigalpa

    I've bought many cases in the past from apple and other manufacturers. This case and the iPad case from apple are the most strikingly elegant cases I've owned. As to its functionality, this case is not for careless owners who are looking for a case to protect their phones from rough usage. It will protect your phone, but it's not life proof if that is what you are looking for.

    iPhone 5S Black Review

    • Written by from Spokane

    I purchased the black iPhone 5S case in February and mine has held up incredibly well. The corners aren't frayed or faded and it hasn't lost any color. It fits the phone like it was painted on and looks fantastic. DO NOT buy this phone in any other color as the lighter colors become dirty and frayed within days. Please only purchase the black iPhone 5S case for BEST results. Hopefully the quality is higher with iPhone 6 cases.

    Great, but...

    • Written by from Manassas

    This case is awesome. I love the feel, love the look, and it's nice and light. I've had my black one for about a week and a half and the leather sets nicely. My only complaint is when I take it out, i notice the ledges on the cut outs around the headphone jack and lightning jack is starting to split, which is a huge bummer. I take my phone out of the case alot, and I'm not willing to sacrifice that for the sake of someone's design flaw. So if it does split before 30 days, I'll just return and exchange it, and keep returning and exchanging it if the cycle continues. Just make sure you guys keep your receipt.

    Beautiful At First

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I was totally in love with it up until the first time I dropped my phone. I realized then how poorly the case fits and how poorly it ages. The case isn't tight enough on the phone and lets it slip out if you drop it on it's face. I went 3+ years with my iPhone 4 without ANY chips on the side with a tight fitting case.

    I dropped my phone from a few feet the other day and now I have 6 chips on the side.

    Save yourself some money and go for something cheaper. I will be going back to something that fits better and won't become hideous after dropping it once.

    GETS DIRTY QUICK - GET BLACK

    • Written by from Sewickley

    The case was nice when I first got it. Just 2 weeks later though, any color besides black will get extremely DIRTY and change color if you use your phone daily (like everyone does). Also be careful when taking case on and off as you could break the skeleton.

    Beautiful but FRAGILE

    • Written by from Sylmar

    I LOVE this case! It's beautiful and keeps my 5s nice and slim. However, the few times that I have dropped it, the leather has just scraped off like knee skin on a sidewalk (hurts just as much too!). I've dropped it once in my garage; scrape. Once on my wood floors; scrape. Once in a parking lot; scrape. I may or may not have cried each of those times :D. Aside from its fragility, it really is the perfect case for the perfect phone.

    The Perfect Compliment

    • Written by from New York

    I cannot imagine why a customer would give the Apple IPhone 5s case a poor review. I need a streamlined case that has a smooth texture for pockets and the right design to protect the screen in case of an accidental drop. The black leather case on my white phone definitely delivers. I have always purchased a case with a new phone and eventually removed the case because it felt like an after-thought. Now that apple has begun to make their own cases, you will not be disappointed ! I love holding the phone even more now because of the high-quality feel that is smooth but grippy enough for daily handling. Do not hesitate to purchase this perfectly fitting accessory.

    Great case overall

    • Written by from Calgary

    I love this case! Worthy of the 5S, it doesn't ruin it's sleekness. I probably wouldn't have chosen it myself but my service provider gave me one for free. I 've had the light blue one for 2 months and haven't had any issues with grease stains etc. not sure what other people are touching their phones with. I don't mind the look of the leather wearing down a bit at all. I purchased the 30 pin adapter with the little bit of cord to attach to my car stereo cable and it fits the case fine. I only gave it 4 stars because I did have the case snap on the thin part the first time I tried to remove it. It didn't however ruin the case for me. You can't tell it's broken when it's on and it doesn't come loose or anything. That is my only complaint about this case. I would purchase it myself even for the steep $45 price (Canadian). Recommended.
