    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!

    Dirt Magnet

    • Written by from Hyderabad

    I bought a Blue Leather Case for my iPhone 5. The Leather Case feels and looks good. The drop protection level is also quiet good. I am careful about where I place the phone and handle the iPhone with care. I have used the case for ten days and it looks like some cheap over the counter iPhone case, mainly because of dirt adhered to the case. Due to matte suede finish the case, it tends to attract dirt at a very fast pace. Apple should certainly attend to this issue.

    Hole at lightning port may break over time

    • Written by from Raleigh

    The hole around the lightning port opening has a very thin strip of plastic framing the outside edge, and this minor part of the case broke within a couple months, only having taken my phone out of the case a handful of times. It's nice to look at, fits great, and is comfy in hand, but structurally unreliable in the long term.

    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

    Gets so dirty and doesn't clean or wipe off well

    • Written by from Fair Oaks

    I have the light blue one and it gets dirty and won't clean off. It's nice and thin but I hate that it always looks dirty. Light colored leather is a bad idea for iPhones.

    doesn't last long

    • Written by from Austin

    I really loved this case for the first couple days, and I reeeeally wanted to keep loving it. but only a few days into it grease stains started to show up (and my hands are particularly dry) and now the case looks gross. it looked absolutely beautiful when I bought it and felt amazing to use but now it's just a waste.

    Good looking and Protective

    • Written by from San Luis Obispo

    I got this case about a month ago and it is a great case. I was first nervous about purchasing the case because of past reviews of the case getting dirty easily, but the black case has shown no sign of dirt yet. It fits perfect on the phone, looks sleek and it feels very nice in your hand. The only thing I do not like (but it is not a big problem) is that the power button does not feel like it is clicking when you press it, but it obviously works, jsut does not feel the same as having no case on it. Overall a great case.

    leather stains & discolors within days

    • Written by from Frisco

    Don't buy. I tried two different colors and they both were stained and discolored within days. In my case, it was primarily from them being in my blue jean pocket. That's all it took. Unless you are keeping this in a color-neutral pocket (i.e. jacket pocket) ALL THE TIME, you are going to be sorely disappointed. It's too bad because this is by far the nicest looking case.

    Nice Case

    • Written by from West Springfield

    Fits my iPhone 5 great. So glad Apple released their own cases (I loved the bumpers on the 4's). Didn't realize the case was one piece and it just places into the case, I like it better. The exterior buttons require quite a bit more force and good luck finding 3rd party cords to fit into the very precise hole.

    Incredible but lacks durability

    • Written by from Bath

    I love this case and I really like how it looks with my space gray iPhone 5s, it feels nice to hold and it seems to be rigid. However, the case will be badly damaged if it falls on a hard surface. My phone fell from my pocket to the ground and it now shows tears in the leather. I have used the case for a little more than a week but because of the fall it seems as if it had been used for a year. I would only recommend this case if you treat your belongings very carefully.

    Third party headphones

    • Written by from Georgetown

    I've never been a fan of ear buds since they are prone to fall out and because the wires are so easily tangled. So, I've always preferred using standard headband style headsets. Unfortunately, the hole for the headphone jack on this case is so small that the plug on my headphones won't fit. I had to remove the case and buy a third party version with a bigger opening for the jack.

    The BEST in case and in color, in my opinion.

    • Written by from East Stroudsburg

    After reading some not so good reviews of the iPhone 5s cases - mostly in other colors, I got the Black as this by far will 'hold-up' well, and it has for close to month now and counting.....

    I LOVE the clean sleek look of the case on my sliver iPhone and the close to tight fit of it. In order to get it out, well, it is not so easy, which is "a good thing." Who wants a loose case that will keep falling off? Getting the phone out works best for me when I try popping/push and pull on the left lower side first, then right and so forth.

    It's hold up pretty well - zero color bleeding, fading or darkening and zero dirty and/or sweaty finger stain. The leather feels soft, nice grip and a smooth clean feel.

    Fades very easily

    • Written by from Asheboro

    This is one of the best fitting cases for the iPhone 5s. Yes. It feels amazing in your hand the leather is super soft which I love, but I also bought it bc it's pretty, which only lasted...not even 2 days. I got the blue color and it already looks dull n a bit dirty I keep it in pocket inside my purse all by its self just to avoid this exact thing I don't like a dirty case. the type of leather it's made of its like a dust magnet. So disappointed :( I loved the case but its pretty color didn't last. This case will only be best in color black. I will be returning it tomorrow. Not worth $40

    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.

    The case has been beautifully designed, there is no doubt. The issue, at least with mine, is that as a result of the (very) tight fit, it is very difficult to put it on and take it off. I am VERY disappointed with the fact the inferior edge of the case, where the charging port is, snapped when i was putting it on and i promise you i am extremely carful with these things. It is a lot of money for a case and i was hoping it would last a year at least but it has been since october and it's snapped, rendering the case next to useless as now it slides off.

    not as durable as it shoud be

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Nice and thin but can only survive 2-3 removals of the iphone until the small leather piece bridging the heaphone connection breaks. If you buy this case do so with the intention of never removing it.

    Also the headphone area is not sculpted so that many headphone jacks can not be inserted to complete depth

    Too delicate for everyday use. Not recommended.

    • Written by from Padova

    I bought the cover in the beige color approx. 3 weeks ago. Looked amazing, nice finishing, perfect fitting. After a couple of days the color had already started wearing off, as of today, it looks like a 2 year old cover. It is too delicate for everyday use, can't really recommend it.

    iPhone 5s Case

    The corners of my phone continuously pop out of it. I love the look of the case but not worth $40.
