    Don't buy it!

    • Written by from Mount Airy

    It's a bad apple...I saw a joke online about how you can buy a case to protect the apple case! Gave it a 2 because the leather is nice...doesn't matter though because you will destroy it! Also, no right angle headphone jacks fit into the port, major fail apple, did you not check? It's not like a leather wallet that will last, it tears VERY easily!

    Nice case...for a week

    • Written by from Chadds Ford

    It looked like a great case but after awhile it just looked bad. I am a huge apple fan and I am very disappointed because it was a nice looking case. I really don't recommend unless your going to get black but still the black wears too! Apple please try harder next time not worth $39

    iPhone 5s Case

    • Written by from Calumet

    After trying several cases for my iPhone 5 (this case fits the original 5 perfectly) I finally ended up with this one. I got the black color, and I'd have to say it looks great, fits perfectly, and is exactly what I wanted. It shows off the thinness of the phone, but has enough of a lip to protect the screen if you lay it face down. My only complaint is this: I bought the red case for my girlfriend, and it immediately got quite dirty; it shows staining and dirt more than any other case I've seen. I tried using some leather cleaner on it which helped somewhat, but it is still quite dirty around the edges. If you're going to get this case, get the black one.

    Good case but...

    • Written by from Henderson

    This is a good case with a quality build and snug fit but it is incompatible with the lightning adapter. Also, the headphone opening does not work with many headphone jacks and makes this reminiscent of the original iPhone's recessed input. While this may seem minor to many new iPhone owners, it is a big irritation to many who have had iPhones prior to the 5s

    Love it all around, but fragile on thin headphone/ charger cutout

    • Written by from colorado springs

    This is my second day with this case(black w/ space grey 5s) and I really do love the looks, and quality of the case. This is one of those things that you must pick up and try on your phone to really get a feel for just how nice it is. It's leather, but it's very smooth to the touch, like when running your hand across it, smooth feel and not textured like you'd think leather would be. The phone is very sleek inside it, it adds very little bulk. When using it you can clearly see the beautiful metal band along the side of the device, it provides a SMALL lip (lay on table) that protects the phone when placing it on surfaces, but during a drop I would expect the screen to touch the ground slightly. However if you used this case and a zagg extreme screen protector, it would have almost no chance of breaking under normal drops. I use a zagg full body original, and the back screen protector doesn't affect how it fits, the case does not touch the screen, so you would be able to use any screen protector without the case peeling it. I went to best buy, and peeled the plastic tape off of the bottom of the case package, slid it out, took it out and tried it on my phone and simply slid it back it and closed the container up so I could try it before buying it. The apple store most likely will not allow you to look at one before buying. I got it for myself the next day.

    BE WARNED: the thin parts of this case ARE fragile and WILL break if you put stress on them. The first time I tried taking my phone out (today) , the thin part on the headphone cutout BROKE..it straight up BROKE. It made a snap kind of sound, not very noticeable, definitely not visible if you're someone else looking at me use it, but I can still see it. It just happened and I do plan to exchange it at the apple store for a new one.
    When taking your phone out: pop it out at the TOP of the phone/case, as to not put stress on the fragile bottom headphone and charger slots. I should have known better, I knew you should take it out from the top..but I never thought it would straight up break not even a day later.
    Now I have yet to see how the case wears out, fades, dirties up so I have yet to comment on that. But keep in mind apple can not please everyone, and there will ALWAYS be those people giving things a one star blaming their incompetence on the product.
    Overall: be careful with it and it will be a great case that truly enhances the phones beauty not hides it.

    Excellent iPhone Case

    • Written by from Colchester

    I purchased the blue and black case for my silver/white iPhone 5s. Both cases fit the iPhone beautifully. Very impressive. The blue case looked great at first but started to show wear/tear after about three weeks. The black case seems much more durable and seems to have a slightly better feel than the blue one. I rated the cases 4-stars because of the durability concerns with the blue case. I plan on keeping the black case for a long time and will most likely buy another when this one starts to wear out. Again, I anticipate the black case lasting a good while. Quick note on Apple's attention to detail: the case is designed so that the metal edges are slightly visible around the iPhone. It looks amazing. Also, the speaker holes line up perfectly at the bottom. Solid quality,

    I do not recommend!

    • Written by from Wetumpka

    This case, while it looked good day one is so easy to show dirt and oil from your hands .. it makes it look really unattractive. Also, I take good care of my phone, I carry it by itself in my pocket and never put keys or anything else with it, yet after a few weeks the case already shows significant scratches and a gouge on one side.

    If that isn't enough, the case doesn't fit tight enough and I am constantly having to pop it back on. But then again, hope you never have to take it off, because that is a major ordeal as well.

    Go find another case and forget about this one from Apple!

    nice but gets dirty real easily

    • Written by from ROYAL OAK

    Let me start by saying I'm really careful with my phones. I had a 4s for almsot two years and it was in perfect condition. I got a 5S and bought the leather case in beige. Love the color, fits well, snug but not too much so. My beef is that it gets dirty SO easily. I specifically got a lighter color so that i can easily find it in my purse. I take a medication that can sometimes stain things, and even though I picked up my phone a while after I touched my medication it still stained the cover and it won't come out. Really disappointed. I got the cover on September 20 and as of today 10/31 it's got stains all over it that won't come out.

    Love it.

    • Written by from Anoka

    Love the case. Great material. Great feel. Great fit. My iPhone fits snug in the case with no play whatsoever. Sturdy. Only gripe I have is that the opening for 3.5mm headphone jacks is a bit small and won't fit many types of aftermarket headphones.

    I like!

    • Written by from Langley

    Great case, smooth and sleek. It doesn't make your phone more chunky, which some cases do. I like the feel and touch of it too.

    The only con: rather difficult to take off. Everytime I try to, it pushes the power button. However, I won't be taking the case off a lot, so it doesn't really matter.

    Love it but it shattered my phone

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I recently bought the iPhone 5S along with this case. I loved the case at first and loved how slim it was until i dropped my phone 2 feet and it completely shattered. Id you drop your phone a lot, do not get this case.

    Great!

    • Written by from North Logan

    I just got the (PRODUCT) RED case in the mail today, and it couldn't look better on my iPhone 5s! 'Tis the best iPhone case I've ever had. The buttons all line-up great, and it feels nice to boot!

    Should you buy it...?
    Yes.

    This case is the best iPhone case I have ever owned.

    • Written by from Northampton

    I have never use the case before this one, because they all were horrible.
    I highly recommend this case to people who don't like a bulky case, but just like moderate protection for their phone.
    The black case was the best choice for me because I don't like how the other colors get dirty.

    Amazing Case Worth The Price!

    • Written by from Toronto

    Just bought this case and its amazing, I recently upgraded to the 5S from the 5 and I have gone through many cases. Otterbox,Speck & Etc. This is by far the most slimmest case I have had and the same time the most protective.

    Only thing is these cases do get stained easily so i picked up black which is perfect.!


    Its a hefty price but its quality and will last a long time!

    Pretty good, but not perfect.

    • Written by from Groveland

    The case has an awesome fit and is actually somewhat difficult to remove. It feels durable, but I don't know how well it would survive being off and on if you tried to swap colors. The case has an awesome almost soft as skin feel when holding it. I have the case in red, but the front lip that raises the phone seems to be discoloring quite easy. Overall I think it is great, but I think there is always room for improvement with things.

    It feels utterly fantastic!

    • Written by from Langley

    Confession - I own A LOT of cases. And they all cost quite a bit less than this one. But without a doubt, my iPhone has never felt better in my hands. The leather is simply superb. It feels exactly like the gorgeous steering wheel on my new BMW. And the outer edges of the case don't wrap around the front of the iPhone to obscure the delightful view. I'll admit that I was swayed by the comments about colours looking dirty and ended up with the black. But honestly, this is so head-and-shoulders above anything else in my collection that I'm going to buy a couple of other colours and switch around. My advice - do not be put off by the price. Buy it and try it for a week or two. I can't imagine you won't LOVE it but just in case, you've always got Apple's return policy to back you up.

    Best iPhone Case I've Used

    • Written by from Memphis

    This really is the best iPhone case I've used since I bought an iPhone 4 and I've tried quite a few cases. The fit and finish of it is without match and the feel in hand is very nice and makes it slightly grippier and more substantial than the iPhone itself. It also doesn't have any tacky logos and just shows a very subtle apple indentation where it normally is on the iPhone itself. Overall it looks very clean and sleek. I've finally found an iPhone case I don't want to take off!

    Great look, great feel, worried about longevity

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I bought the case yesterday, and was very pleasantly surprised with the overall design of the case, how great it fits in my hand, the interior (although not so important) is a great addition, very soft to protect the back of my phone. The fit is really great, and the buttons press easily. One big concern though, is I just noticed the corners of the cover are already wearing out. I got it in blue, and the bottom corners have already darkened in only 24 hours. Dirt also seems to stain the material easily. Will have to see... I take great care of my products, but I use my phone a lot since I'm always on the run, bicycling, taking my phone in and out of my pockets, and it's important that it doesn't get damaged from basic uses or fabric stains.
