    Great until it cracks

    • Written by from Seattle

    I have had the case for a little over a month and have been delighted with it until it cracked at the thin part by the lightning pin port. This case has been treated gently, it is a shame that it lacks durability.

    Collects Dirt, Abrasions, Looks Nasty After Only 1 Month

    • Written by from Riverside

    Yuck. My least favorite phone case ever. Cannot sanitize. Leather case is far too easily damaged by scratches and abrasions. Collects dirt and everything else. Buttons difficult to push. Color not as advertised. Costs too much for all these issues...it's just a phone case, not something I should feel like I need to avoid because of germs. In fact, I shouldn't even have to think about it for $40. Disappointed in this purchase on a daily basis.

    Great case for the money

    • Written by from Austin

    This is a wonderful little case that offers protection and style in one. Very well made and doesn't add a ton of bulk. I got the belkin screen protectors to use with this case and they work well too. If you're looking for a good quality case, look no further.

    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...

    I really like this case. It feels great in the hand and is really slim for a full protection case. However, it seems that every color (except Black) suffers from color fading and in relatively short time. I have owned my Product RED case for less than a month and it is already showing extreme wear on the edges of the case. It looks horrible. I take care of my devices and the cases that protect them. I would purchase another RED only it it would last at least several months before it looked worn and used. Stay away from the lighter colors.

    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.

    Terrible Case

    • Written by from Madison

    I loved the look and feel of the case in the store, but three weeks after purchasing, the top edge of the case above the camera is already completely torn - the edges are showing extreme wear and the case itself looks incredibly dirty. Unless you want to keep re-buying cases, I do not recommend this product.

    Fits the phone prefect

    • Written by from Dayton

    I bought the yellow one, and that was my only mistake. I keep my phone in my pocket and the yellow color looks horrible now. Gets dirty really fast and can't clean it. Tried soap and water and a Mr. Clean Magic eraser. I would give it 5 stars if I got say the black one. Like I said fits the phone perfectly but the colored ones are a mistake!

    Bad Choice of Case

    • Written by from SHELBY TOWNSHIP

    I purchased this in Red. Very bad decision. Within a week, it looks awful even though I take great care of my devices. It is turning a 'dirty' look very quick. While the case it constructed very well, it should only be offered in black. Any thing else is a waste of $40, which I quickly discovered.

    Almost the perfect case.

    • Written by from Germantown

    I have a hard time paying 40 bucks for a case but I will say that this one is well worth it. For me the purpose of a case has always been protection but the limitations of almost all cases is that it recesses the screen. Cases almost always add weight to a device but the leather feels great and still makes the phone feel really light. This case also forms a tight seal around the phone and the screen isn't hampered in any way. I have a white iPhone 5 and got the black case and it looks and feels great. Plastic cases and snap cases are always too sticky or too slick and pick up loads of dirt. This case would be even more perfect if it had a flip front cover like the new iPad cases. I have one for my iPad Mini retina and it is awesome.

    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!

    I am returning this case

    • Written by from Dallas

    I was excited to get my new 5S along with what I believe to be Apples first case. Unfortunately I am extremely disappointed with the protection quality. I purchased my iPhone 5S and the case in black a week ago and have not removed the case since. Yesterday I dropped my phone from about knee height and the phone itself actually popped out of the case and cracked the screen on impact. I immediately went to a an Apple Store and I was told they could not do anything and that the case does not guarantee that the screen would not crack which I think is understandable. I don't think any case can guarantee that. But the phone POPPING OUT of the case? I don't think that is acceptable from an Apple product specifically designed for my phone. Based on the fall I also don't think the screen would have cracked had the phone itself stayed in the case. Sure the case looks and feels nice but I was expecting a bit more protection than aesthetics. I will be returning this case and returning to the Incase Slider Case.

    High-quality case

    • Written by from Atlanta

    Just got this case (black) for my black iPhone 5 yesterday.

    The leather feels great. The case fits so snug on the phone, doesn't slip at all and feels very sturdy. I've had 4 cases for my 5 before this, and this is by far the best. Covers all the important parts, and has the lip on front too to protect it when you lay the phone flat on a surface.

    I'm planning to get a white 5s in February, and I'm excited to be able to use this case on that phone as well.

    Solid case with a few issues

    • Written by from Orange

    This is a really good case but it has a few problems. The leather is really nice and soft. It's thin but could be thinner. It still makes the phone feel a decent amount chunkier. The biggest problem is that most aftermarket headphones can't plug into the iphone when the case is on. Another slight issue is that with a leather case you don't get to see the beauty of the space gray on black metal. Apple should consider manufacturing a nice transparent case.

    Brown - Good fit, Gets Dirty Quickly

    • Written by from Lexington

    I would recommend trying the black one. The lighter colors (like the brown) get dirty quickly and when you clean them, it leaves black marks (as if the dye used to color them wears away). It is also pretty slick on the back, so don't expect something more "grippy." All in all though, it does fit well and seems well constructed. It's slim and doesn't detract much (and enhances) the overall look of the phone.

    As lame as it sounds though, try the black one if you try at all.

    Fine case

    • Written by from SAN FRANCISCO

    I didn't give this a full five because I don't yet know how durable it will be in the long run. I suspect it will eventually show signs of wear., but I bought my "brown" (really saddle tan) case when it first came out, and there are no signs of wear at all: no smudges, stains,--nothing.

    I can only attribute the bad reviews vs. my totally positive experience to differences in use (or more likely, abuse). I would never put my phone in a pants pocket; it usually goes into the inside breast pocket of my jacket, and occasionally in a Sena holster. I probably don't use it as much as most folks, which along with careful handling undoubtedly contributes to my positive experience. And no, it is not particularly difficult to remove, not that that matters much as I have no reason to remove it.

    As others have pointed out, the case fits perfectly., looks great, and feels wonderful. People, it is not an Otterbox, and it doesn't pretend to be. Lighten up. Save your vitriol for something really serious.
