    Stood up to concert friction!

    • Written by from Austin

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

    Very Dissappointed!

    • Written by from Amagansett

    The quality of the case is ok but not worth $39. The biggest problem is that you cannot use an Apple adapter to charge the phone when this case is on the phone! The adapter does not fit in far enough to connect and charge the phone without taking the case off--each time you want to charge. Very poor design by Apple who created the adapter AND this case which don't work together.

    Best iPhone Case

    • Written by from Portland

    When I got my iPhone 5, I bought a very slick looking case with a transparent backing that sadly, didn't stay transparent for long and also caused tiny specks of dirt to be ground into the soft aluminum case of the phone, creating giant gouges. When I saw these online I decided to pick this up and the lady at the Apple Store let me check it out before i bought it. I could not be happier. It holds the phone snugly with a great texture and most importantly, a soft inner lining to prevent dirt from chipping the aluminum finish.

    Perfect Case!!!

    • Written by from Fullerton

    Just buy it. You won't regret it. Workmanship, looks, fit and finish all Apple! It fits great and feels terrific. Could not have designed a better compliment to the 5s. I love this case! PS-not sure what some of the other reviewers were talking about -- the 30-pin/Lightening adapter is fully compatible.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Mapleton

    I purchased this iPhone 5s Case with my iPhone 5s. I love the look of the iPhone 5s, but I didn't want to risk dropping it and scratching the beautiful phone. I got the black leather version and it is beautiful on the phone and feels great in hand. My sister got the blue version and she loves it and it looks great as well. It is easy to put on and it doesn't make the phone "fat" at all. I would definitely recommend.

    The Perfect Case for iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ridgewood

    This is the best case I've ever used on an iPhone!. I purchased the RED and I couldn't be happier. Smoothe and beautifully made. Perfect fit on the device and it feels wonderful in my hand.
    I'll be buying more in other colors once I see how well it ages.

    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

    Great feel, disappointing design.

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Very light and feels great. Fits the phone well. Pretty slim fit - about the same thickness as a naked 4S. But uncharacteristically, they missed the details:

    - Difficult to access mute switch. I need to reach in with the tip of my finger or I can't catch the edge. Annoying, but tolerable.
    - Sleep and volume buttons are difficult to press. There aren't cutouts for these buttons, just slightly embossed leather. The volume button response is duller, but tolerable. The sleep button, however, is a chore to activate. This is a deal breaker. Every time I put the phone down, it leaves me frustrated. They've been at this too long to not get this right.
    - Headphone jack cutout is too small. Good luck getting non-Apple headphones plugged in through the tiny opening they've afforded for the headphone jack. Personally, this is a total dealbreaker.

    They almost hit it out of the park. Instead, it's a swing and a miss.

    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.

    AWESOME!!

    • Written by from TYLER

    Yea, that is right: AWESOME!!

    The buttons are going to be a tad stiff guys at first and will break in I promise.

    I hear the complaints about different jacks not fitting, this never surprises me anymore that is why I went Airplay/Bluetooth on everything I own now.

    Gorgeous

    • Written by from seattle

    I have avoided buying a case for my iPhone 5. This is the first case I have seen that actually looks like it's a natural extension of the phone, rather than a clunky add-on. This case fits beautifully. The Apple logo on the back is subtle, but definitely lends to the feeling that the case and phone are designed together. Great case.

    Not compatible with lightning connector or dock

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    Sure, the leather case is good quality leather, but its not compatible with Apple's own lightning connectors or docks, so you have to take it out every day to actually use your phone.

    Pretty, useless = pretty useless

    • Written by from Washington

    The case is fine, expect...

    Come on: so obnoxious not to support Apple's own expensive thirty-pin adapters. Either incompetence -- more "elegance" over function thinking -- or a deliberate tactic intended to make obsolete all but the latest generation of products.

    In either case, annoying and lame.

    Shows age at an incredible place

    • Written by from Guntersville

    In terms of how it fits, you can tell is the first case designed to complement the iPhone and not cover it up.
    Unfortunately, that's where the good stops. I have on this case, the yellow color, or exactly 5 days, and it already looks absolutely terrible. I understand that weather will age and wear over time, but after five days my yellow case already has more gray on it than the original color. Will most likely be returning it later today.

    Great case - leather stains QUICKLY

    • Written by from Sherman Oaks

    My first impressions were that this was easily the best case I'd bought for an iPhone. Real leather, covers every inch it needs to with precision, felt like butter in my hands.

    Which brings me to the downside...unsealed leather takes in oils, like skin oil. I bought the brown because it looked the sharpest. 10 days later, I brought it back to the apple store for a black one because the brown had sullied so bad it looked like the case was 2 years old. IN 10 DAYS. It just absorbed every nanoliter of oil from my hands and there's no way to clean it off. It's inside the leather.

    So...beware of any light colored version of this case. It will age in microseconds.

    Its ok, for now.

    • Written by from LAWNDALE

    I had my case for a week and hadn't taken it off my iPhone 5. Today I wanted to clean my phone because I noticed dust was getting on the side of the screen. I took it off the way people had recommended (right side first). It was easy enough, but then I noticed that the case split on the small area above the headphone jack cutout. Something so simple as removing a case ended with it breaking immediately. Luckily, the employee at the Apple Store understood and gave me a completely new one in the box. The reason I'm rating it low is due to the fact that it took so little effort to break a case that is supposed to protect your $199-$399 phone. It makes me think how long this case will even last. Thank goodness for the 1 Year Accessory Warranty.
