    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from Yule

    The case is very slim and smooth to the touch, however it has zero protection! I dropped it while sitting down and the phone fell completely out of the case and was damaged on the corner. Not even a week later, it fell from an end table and once again the phone fell out of the case, this time shattering my screen. Save your money and just enjoy the design of the phone itself, because a case is pointless like this. Very disappointed with apple on this one.

    Spend your money on black or elsewhere.

    This is a beautiful, well fitting case. Until you use it very long and the leather gets very dirty. I was extremely disappointed in the way it looked within a month, and there's no cleaning it! Come on Apple, you can do better for a $500.00 phone!

    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.

    Excellent Case!!

    • Written by from Longmont

    This case is by far the best case that I have ever owned. I am one who likes to change cases about twice a day until I purchased this case. Since Christmas of 2013 I have maybe changed my case about 5 times and each time I always return to the Apple iPhone 5s Case. Yes I would definitely recommend this case to anyone. go ahead purchase it... it will be worth it.

    Best case I've ever purchased.

    • Written by from Tegucigalpa

    I've bought many cases in the past from apple and other manufacturers. This case and the iPad case from apple are the most strikingly elegant cases I've owned. As to its functionality, this case is not for careless owners who are looking for a case to protect their phones from rough usage. It will protect your phone, but it's not life proof if that is what you are looking for.

    Looks nice, not functional

    • Written by from Lexington

    The case sure does look nice. However a case should do more than look nice. It should protect the phone. If you drop your phone with this case the screen will crack and then you can pay the fee to replace the phone. Looks are not everything, go for a case that actually protects your investment.

    Case Addict

    • Written by from Rehoboth

    Being a young guy, I tend to go through a lot of iPhone cases. By far this is one of my favorites. It's a slim case that feels and looks good. Haven't gotten to try the case with any docks yet, but I can assume it will fit with the apple docks. Definitely would recommend this to anyone for sure.

    Perhaps the Perfect Case

    • Written by from TOPEKA

    This case fits perfectly and the suede lining is a nice idea. The case appears to give the perfect amount of protection without any extra bulk. A case befitting Apple's reputation. Good job!

    Looks nice, but that's about it

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    This is a nice looking case, fits well, prevents scratches, keeps your phone from feeling bulky, etc.

    But just bear in mind that if you drop your phone, your screen WILL crack and you WILL spend another $250 on your phone to have it repaired.

    Great case, works well with my 5, just a pain to use headphones

    • Written by from Westbrook

    I bought this case about a year ago, and since then I've used it just about everyday and even have dropped it a couple times. The leather can get scratched a little bit on the edges/corners, but if they're small enough and don't rip off the leather completely, just stick a pinhead sized drop of crazyglue down to hold it back together – fairly simple fix. It gets that nice, soft, worn leather feeling after a while, adding to the simple experience of just holding the phone. I chose black because I have the black iPhone 5, and because it doesn't take much brain power to know that dirt won't show up as easily compared to a lighter color.

    The phone snaps into the case and fits like a glove – the edges don't come too far over as to pull up any screen protector, which is a huge plus in my book, but come out enough to keep the screen from dragging on a table should you put it screen/face down.

    The only issue I have with the case, and this is why it gets 4 stars and not 5 (and I almost thought of deducting another star for this) is that to use any normal headphones/earbuds (third party, like Bose) you will need to take the phone out of the case or use an extender made primary to fit into abnormally small openings that lead to the headphone jack (usually come with products like an iPhone battery pack). I absolutely do not like having to do this, and taking my phone out of the case so often has lead to the thin part of the case right above the lightning connector port to break (and maybe it's because I take the phone out bottom first instead of top first).

    To sum up: great case, feels nice to hold, doesn't show dirt as easily, easy to repair minor scrapes, but a pain with earbuds/headphones - however, great if you listen to music only via bluetooth or anything but your iPhone.

    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?

    iPhone 5S Black Review

    • Written by from Spokane

    I purchased the black iPhone 5S case in February and mine has held up incredibly well. The corners aren't frayed or faded and it hasn't lost any color. It fits the phone like it was painted on and looks fantastic. DO NOT buy this phone in any other color as the lighter colors become dirty and frayed within days. Please only purchase the black iPhone 5S case for BEST results. Hopefully the quality is higher with iPhone 6 cases.

    Great, but...

    • Written by from Manassas

    This case is awesome. I love the feel, love the look, and it's nice and light. I've had my black one for about a week and a half and the leather sets nicely. My only complaint is when I take it out, i notice the ledges on the cut outs around the headphone jack and lightning jack is starting to split, which is a huge bummer. I take my phone out of the case alot, and I'm not willing to sacrifice that for the sake of someone's design flaw. So if it does split before 30 days, I'll just return and exchange it, and keep returning and exchanging it if the cycle continues. Just make sure you guys keep your receipt.

    Beautiful At First

    • Written by from Kelowna

    I was totally in love with it up until the first time I dropped my phone. I realized then how poorly the case fits and how poorly it ages. The case isn't tight enough on the phone and lets it slip out if you drop it on it's face. I went 3+ years with my iPhone 4 without ANY chips on the side with a tight fitting case.

    I dropped my phone from a few feet the other day and now I have 6 chips on the side.

    Save yourself some money and go for something cheaper. I will be going back to something that fits better and won't become hideous after dropping it once.

    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.

    I love this case. Don't listen to misinformed ignorant reviewers.

    • Written by from Wausau

    On the packaging it makes a clear statement that the appearance of the case would change during use. My black case still looks and feels great after four months of use. It is amazing to hold and impresses all of my friends with it's professional looks and amazing feel. It's genuine leather and I couldn't find a better case for an amazing phone.

    Black is the only way to go

    • Written by from Brantford

    I bought the brown case and it was really dirty within a few weeks. Overall, I really like the feel and fit but if you want something that will retain its original look, then I think black would be the only choice.
