    Signal strength

    • Written by from San Diego

    I have an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 5s both with the new case. Not sure if anyone else is having this issue but my signal strength seems spotty with it on... Never had a problem like this until I got the case and it's not till I got the second case for my iPhone 5 that I started thinking it might be the case... This is a major issue for a really well designed iPhone case! Perfect fit but signal issues...

    Great in black

    • Written by from Hollywood

    After reading some of the reviews I was skeptical about buying one. I chose the black one because some people reported color rubbing off. My phone is constantly in and out of my pocket. I don't see any wear on the edges or corners. For me this is a great case.

    Waste of $39 for a Apple Product

    • Written by from Fairbanks

    Because this case is made by Apple itself I expected a very nice high quality product! I received it the mail last Friday and just put it on with excitement, I got it in the color beige because I have the iPad Air case also in beige and I was happy to see how well It was holding up so I expected the same from the phone case! NOT THE CASE AT ALL! This case is now horriblely disgusting and worn down, and I only keep it in my purse and back pocket. 2 very safe places that shouldn't cause any wear, and this phone case is literly falling apart the sides have started to peel up. This ruins everything good about the case for me. And to see it have 4 stars truly disgusts me. They should of only produced to this case in black. Because then this wear would not be as noticeable. I am very VERY Disappointed in Apple. I expect better from them. I guess now its time to call for a refund.

    Very Disappointed

    • Written by from Salina

    This case is awful. I have had the blue case for 4 months & the appearance is horrible. The leather is many different colors, and the corners have worn. It gets dirty & is not easy to clean. Don't waste your money!

    Perfect

    • Written by from Alpharetta

    I have a 5s and I'm not a fan of cases and don't use them because I appreciate the design of the iphone. But my brother said you have to try this case its really good. He bought two and gave me the black one. I was like wow this is very nice feels just like the phone does without a case!

    Very sleek & thin just like the iphone I will say this is the perfect case. As one review mention it is hard to get off no biggie.

    Wow. Finally a great quality leather iPhone case!

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This surpassed my every expectation! I've had everyone iPhone since the beginning and tried almost every case out there. Nothing has ever come close to the slim fit, lightness, durability (granted only had it a couple of weeks) and great looks!

    I'm hoping this stands the test of time, but so far, absolutely no complaints! Looks and feels as great as the day I bought it!

    Great product with a major flaw

    • Written by from Chicago

    When I applied the case to my iPhone, it fit like a glove and felt good to hold. No complaints from that end. BUT the major flaw is that the opening for the headphone jack is too small for some third party headphones, including BOSE. I returned the case the next day. Too bad Apple's design of the case systematically precludes the use of some popular headphones.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Kotzebue

    Apple probably wants it's consumers to use their phones naked so when they make a case they make it classy. The feeling of the case is amazing, feels very nice in the hand. I don't know what the other reviews are talking about when they say it gets dirty. I have a black one and it looks brand new.

    Great Fit--but looks awful!

    • Written by from groveland

    I am a compulsive case shopper so I have had many cases for my iphone 5. I was so excited to purchase this product because I figured it would fit much better due to the fact Apple produced it. That, at least I was right about. I love the way it fits!

    The problem is how well the leather looks after some use. I purchased the red case and within days it looked old and grungy. All the oils from your hands leave black marks on the edges and sides and all over the back where you would typically hold the phone.

    I know its supposed to look better with age, but I am guessing it will just look like I should buy a new case! Maybe the black one holds up better.

    Looks nice but stains very easily

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I got the beige one. I stained it within the first 3 hours of having my new iphone and I am not a generally messy person. The leather takes up stains very quickly and they are impossible to get out.

    In black, it might work better because it hides staines, but I would not get a light color.

    Im returning it and getting a black leather case that holds a credit card at the same time.

    Highly recommended

    • Written by from BUFFALO

    I was really not sure wanting to spend 40 on a case but I gave it a shot with anti glare screen protector I ended up spending 60 dollars
    As far as the case is very excellent I've tried plenty of cases this by far is worth the money the way it fits feels looks .., I got the black one It's looks like they spend enough time to figure out the right materials and the design of it around the phone .. Very unique product again I would highly recommend this . Don't waste money on cases that u would through out for 10 or 20 or even 30 . Get this

    Clean and Precise

    • Written by from Roseville

    I've tried any number of cases, from bulky "military" type cases to super thin plastic shells, and among all of them, this case has the most precise fit and finish. The cut outs are perfectly aligned over the openings, and the "lay on table" edge is just high enough to keep the screen safe while not getting in the way of iOS 7 edge gestures.

    I opted for the black finish, and after two weeks of daily use the finish is holding up well. The subtly textured surface creates just enough friction to keep the phone in place while typing on a table top, and the feel in hand is comfortable and secure.

    Overall I'd rate this as one of the best cases available for the iPhone 5 or 5s. It doesn't offer the extreme drop protection of some cases, but for the average person using their phone in a business environment, this is a very nice solution.

    Good Case

    • Written by from San Jose

    Good, protective case. My only complaint is that tiny particles of dust and crumbs get into the little gap between the case and phone. I liked how the iPhone 4 bumper covered those gaps to prevent from little crumbs and etc from getting stuck in there. Dust also gets into that little hole where that camera is. I also wish this 5s case was more grippy, especially when you place it on a table so that it doesn't slide.

    If Apple could just make an official bumper case for the iPhone 5/5S, I would be extremely content.

    Make sure you get a good one

    • Written by from Amherst

    I am about to order my third case. The first one, the leather was separating from the plastic surrounding the opening for the camera and flash. The second one looks like the leather has been creased in several places, making the surface uneven.
    Overall though, I really like the case. I just need to find one that doesn't have a defect.

    Alright case, but still like my Incase Slider better

    • Written by from NOTTINGHAM

    I bought a black case the day they were available, thinking I may have found a case I like even more than my Incase slider but that wasn't the case. Here are my complaints about the iPhone leather case that will keep my using my Incase:

    1.) The power button is actually difficult to press with the piece of leather covering it.
    2.) The case is slippery and didn't make the phone feel secure in my hand.
    3.) The corners of the case barely go past the screen, which left me uneasy with placing my phone face down.
    4.) The case doesn't really balance on it's side or standing up when in use. This is maybe a small complaint, but I do actually stand my phone up quite a bit, and the Incase Slider does a really good job of this.

    I think this case is a nice option, but there is no doubt that I enjoy my other case more than this one, so it will be returned.

    Nice but with flaw

    • Written by from Lakewood

    This is a nice leather case, albeit pricey. One major flaw is that with the case, the power button does not have a nice feedback. I think this is a pretty major design flaw on Apple's part.

    Overpriced and underwhelming

    • Written by from Little Elm

    If you can get past the steep cost of this case, you will be initially impressed by the firm grip of the shell and soft feel of the leather.

    Within weeks, though, the flaws will start to show up. I have the brown version of the case, and within the first month it was already getting discolored by dirt and smudges from normal daily use.

    A year later, this case has become fully useless due to the fact that it has a very loose grip on my phone at this point. The phone slips out and the buttons are rarely flush against the phone's counterpart.

    The case held up well to drops and damage, but it is functionally unusable now.

    The only case you will need.

    • Written by from Valparaiso

    This is by far the best case you can own for an iphone 5 or 5s.
    Fits perfectly, dirt and dust doesn't get inside it, the microfiber inside keeps the phone in perfect shape. The leather feels very nice to the touch.
    Perfect fit, perfect feel. I hope apple keeps making cases for future phones.

    Very good, high quality case.

    • Written by from Peterborough

    This is a very high quality case with a luxurious feel. I do advise that you avoid the lighter colours as they get dirty easily. I had the red one before my current black one. I found that the red one was getting dirty, so I went to the apple store and they gave me a new one. No questions asked. I really like this case and it offers good protection.
