    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!

    Stood up to concert friction!

    I took mine to Austin City Limits (ACL), and the case emerged unscathed. It's great.

    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.

    Great Case, Only 1 Drawback

    • Written by from Morristown

    Overall this is a great case. It's thin, light, does not add much weight to the phone and looks elegant. My one issue is that it narrows the charging port a bit, so the car charger I have no longer reaches and will need to be replaced. I would check compatibility with any charger you may have before purchasing. Other than that, I definitely recommend this case, as it looks awesome on my space gray iPhone 5S.

    Bezel shows with this case

    • Written by from Holmdel

    When looking at the screen you can see the thin silver bezel around the phone when this case is on - something I regard as visually distracting. I purchased the space gray model specifically to avoid the white around the screen (with the white models) and now have this issue. When looking at it on the website the bezel does not show (all you see is the black screen and black case around it). This is a great form fitting case but would have preferred it covering the bezel.

    pretty but fragile

    • Written by from ASTORIA

    pros: it's really pretty and light. and of course with an Apple mark in the back, you can show off!

    cons: it's easily torn and got dirty. 1st scar made when I just took it out of the plastic case! and 2nd one happened on the side when I accidentally dropped my phone. So within 3 days I got this case, there are 2 scars made already... and my beige color got dirty easily...

    Broke my phone :(

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The little plastic piece that bridges over the charger port snapped off and was the perfect size to get jammed into the port. Now the plug wont go into the phone because the plastic piece is still in there. Pretty unfortunate :(

    Discolor and eventually, break.

    • Written by from SUGAR LAND

    I have purchased two of theses cases. I bought a red one and a brown one, both of which have changed colors around the edges. Also, one of the cases broke near the charging port.

    Ehhh...

    • Written by from Garden Grove

    I just bought my second case. I made the mistake of buying the nice baby blue case when I first got my iPhone 5S. I'm an extremely clean person and yet, somehow, the case became dirty within a few days. The case itself is pretty sturdy, although if you drop your phone hard, the leather will scrape off. The case fits tightly onto the phone which I like because I've had cases that bounce right off when the phone is dropped. My second case is black and I've had it for two weeks with no problems. It doesn't look dirty on black and I haven't dropped it yet so no wear and tear. This case is overly priced but it does look sleek. I am in the middle about this one. I guess if you have the extra money, then go ahead and buy this case. I've gotten many compliments on the look (thin and sleek) and feel (smooth touch) of the case.

    Cannot use on Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (0.2 m)

    Couple of spots.

    • Written by

    This is the best case that I would spend for $40. The only two complaints that I have for this case is basically dirt spots everywhere. If I were to keep the case on for at least 3 days, there would be spots on the back of my iPhone 5s that I didn't put on. The second dirt spot I would find is near the camera. There is always something in the camera shaped hole for the iPhone. I would have to take the case off and wipe the camera off a little. But overall, it's still an "ok" approved case for me.

    Nice Look, Problem with On/Off Button

    • Written by from College Station

    Looks and feels great but I'm really disappointed with the design around the on/off button. I'm having to mash the on/off button repeatedly 2 or more times for it to work. I recommend holding off on purchasing this case until Apple redesigns it.

    Overpriced

    • Written by from Minot

    The case to me seems cheaply designed...it does have a nice leather finish but something feels off. When I took it out of the package I thought it felt very flimsy and light...not something I feel will protect my phone significantly.

    Also the black case in the picture the apple has a slight grey tone...however when I got mine it was all black and the apple just blends in....deceiving and I'm quite disappointed with that as I think it'd stick out more as an apple case and not a random one.

    Iphone 5s Black Leather Case

    • Written by from Ingewood

    Purchased this item about 5 months ago. It was great at first, perhaps the best case i had bought, plenty of failed cases before this one. So it was great for like, the first month, then wear and tear was starting to make its mark, and now, the back is so marked and scratched, and i just carry it in my pocket.

    This case's microphone grill doesn't match iPhone's microphone grill

    • Written by from Sunnyside

    Purchased this from Apple store September 2013 to protect my 5S. I started getting complaints the other side couldn’t hear me, but I only need to move it slightly to improve it so I didn’t pay much attention. I was recently cleaning the case & phone and I noticed the grill of the two don't match... I went to the store and the genius shrugged and asked if I wanted to buy another one that had an open bottom instead of one with a grill.

    She said I couldn't return the official one because the return by date had passed ... which that generally makes sense - how was I to know an accessory made by Apple wouldn't match the product it's sold to be compatible with that product?

    premium feel, flawed design

    • Written by from San Diego

    I owned this case from oct 2013-june 2014.

    The case is high quality and the soft smooth leather feels very satisfying in hand. It is also a pretty durable I have had high velocity drops that leave marks on the case but no damage to my phone.

    The problem with this case is its design, I dropped my phone while trying to pull it out of my pocket. It fell from waist high onto concrete. Because it landed flat (face down) the lower corner of the phone dislodged from the case and made contact with the concrete resulting in a shattered screen. I have dropped my phone numerous times before, but because it landed flat, this was the time it broke.

    At 40 dollars each I dont think its unreasonable to expect this case to actually protect your phone from drops. It will protect your phone from MOST drops but that isnt good enough.

    Not compatible with most 3rd party Accys

    • Written by from Chicago

    This one star is for how I use the product. If I used only Apple accessories, I'd probably give it a 4-5 star review..but I use Bose headphones and with the exception of syncing my phone, I use Amazon Basics cords to charge my phone. This case does not allow you to use either. The holes are cut to use the Apple earbuds and lightning cables. I liked the case, the fit wasn't perfect, but it was good and it looks good. Will be returning.
