    Camera cutout is not huge, there is no "lip" overlapping the border of the screen (which is what I prefer), and microfiber on the inside which gives you relief that your device will not get scratched.

    This case overall was built above my expectations. One thing to keep in mind is that almost all aftermarket Lightning connectors probably will not fit with the case on, and you will need to use an OEM Apple Lightning cord.

    Bezel shows with this case

    • Written by from Holmdel

    When looking at the screen you can see the thin silver bezel around the phone when this case is on - something I regard as visually distracting. I purchased the space gray model specifically to avoid the white around the screen (with the white models) and now have this issue. When looking at it on the website the bezel does not show (all you see is the black screen and black case around it). This is a great form fitting case but would have preferred it covering the bezel.

    Issue with headphone jack and lighting adapter

    • Written by from NORWALK

    I have the lighting adapter (made by Apple) that fits on the old 30 pin, well guess what, it doesn't fit with this case on.

    Also I have a pair of Sony MDR headphones, guess what, it doesn't fit the headphone opening. I would imagine most studio or over the ear headphones won't fit this case. Amazingly designed cases shouldn't have these issues, or at least support your own products.

    Great Case, Very High Quality

    • Written by from FAR HILLS

    This is a great case, and it is very high in quality. It feels great in your hand -- much better than any other case. This will always feel good in your hand, as other's sometimes do not. Since it is designed by Apple, everything is perfect and it fits the iPhone 5s perfectly, and it is very thin and has a great profile, to just fit the phone.

    I recommend this case very much -- it is very high in quality, feels and looks great, and is a really great case.

    My First Case to Ever Perfectly Fit

    • Written by from Orem

    Just like you would expect with Apple products, everything is made perfectly with this case! I love how it feels too. It protects everything you want it to, and it looks fantastic.

    Stains easily, not grip-y enough, lousy purchase experience

    • Written by from New York

    I've owned this case (beige) for 24 hours. The case is decent, but there are a few key issues already:

    1) One of the key reasons I own a case is to protect the phone when I drop it, but this case does almost nothing to prevent drops in the first place. The leather does not have enough tack to keep it from sliding off surfaces or fall out of my hand.

    2) I've had the case for less than 24 hours, and already the leather corners are turning blue from being inside my jeans pocket. These jeans are almost a year old, have been washed plenty of times, and don't stain other items that I own. (I purchased a beige case, which obviously will stain more easily than a dark-colored case, but still.)

    3) I purchased this at the Apple store, and it was a lousy experience. There was no way to touch or feel the case without purchasing it first. I even asked an Apple salesperson, and they had no samples available. They suggested that I take it out of the packaging right when I was purchasing it, and if I didn't like it, return it right away. Absurd.

    This is not Apple's finest product.

    Case Fail - won't support Lightning to 30-pin Adapter

    • Written by from markham

    The shape of the case will not allow you to plug in the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.

    You have to remove the case to use the adapter. As most of you will be charging the phone at home, in the car and at work, can you imagine the frustration that is ripping off this case to charge the phone multiple times a day?

    Also, the material of the case will lead to color smudging very quickly. Like a mister clean eraser, the case will turn blackish real quick.

    If this will bother you, take a pass on this case. Case Fail.

    pretty but fragile

    • Written by from ASTORIA

    pros: it's really pretty and light. and of course with an Apple mark in the back, you can show off!

    cons: it's easily torn and got dirty. 1st scar made when I just took it out of the plastic case! and 2nd one happened on the side when I accidentally dropped my phone. So within 3 days I got this case, there are 2 scars made already... and my beige color got dirty easily...

    NOT slippery. GREAT leather!

    • Written by

    I didn't know what to expect from this case. It being my first true leather case, all I can say is WOW!
    It is not slippery at all- great leather with a mild grip. It has a very snug fit, once it goes on, let it wear in a little till you take it off. Great leather gets even better with time. Im willing to buy another one in a different color too!
    It fits well into jean pockets with out much effort.

    and by the way, it does smell good.

    High quality, perfect fit.

    • Written by from portland

    I couldn't imagine a better case for my new iphone. It protects but doesn't compromise the integrity of the thin design. It's a great compliment to the phone.

    Best case ever made for any phone....

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Very impressed with the flawless construction. Snug fit so don't expect to take it on and off easily, tho that should not be an issue with most users.

    Be warned: The 5s with this case cannot be used in the new Apple iPhone 5s dock :(

    I had to return it!

    • Written by from Dallas

    I wanted to be the big Apple Snob and buy the Apple case for my new 5S so I picked the brown color. I was very very happy with the case till I went home after my purchase. I did use the phone a few times in the that time and when I went home I noticed that the brown edges had started turning black. That was my first disappointment so I thought "this is easy and I will just get a black one" but this case is VERY difficult to take off and I almost scrached my brand new phone trying to take this off. I struggled with it for 20 mins before I could do it and then I took it right back the next day and did not buy another case. If you are charging me $40 for something that I can get for $15 somewhere else at least make it flawless. I am sad as I had REALLY liked the case.

    Amazing case

    • Written by from Victoria

    This is probably the best case I've ever bought! Slides in and out of pockets, it's comfortable to hold and doesn't slip out of your hands. It looks amazing. Defiantly worth getting one for your new iPhone 5S or 5!

    It Even Smells Good

    • Written by from Plymouth

    I've purchased a lot of cases, each of which have lasted between a few days and a few months. Most of them are either not of high enough quality or don't fit well. This case is above and beyond any other case I've tried. Best $39 I've spent in a long time. You won't be disappointed. Oh, and the leather smells really nice.

    Extremely high quality product

    • Written by from Indian Land

    I had all intentions of not having a case on my phone, but I actually prefer the feel of the phone with this case on it. The phone feels much more solid and durable with the case on it and I expect that I'll be using this case for the duration of my ownership of the phone.

    Best case out

    This is the best case I've ever had for any of my iphones. The phone is still amazingly thin in the case and it feels great in the hand.

    Apple got it right!

    • Written by from Salinas

    I love this case. I am very picky about cases and have bought several for my iPhone 5. I was never totally happy with any of them. This case is the exception. I loved it from the start. Very well made and feels great to hold. It has a high quality look, which is perfect for the 5s. I will keep this one for the life of the phone. It's expensive, but at least it is made of leather and not the typical plastic that flood the market.

    Great Leather Case - Worthy of the iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    This is a great case that is quality leather. I liked it so much that I bought 3 cases. It is the first case I've owned that is quality enough for an iPhone. Love the Apple logo on the back. The price is good and for only $10 more than most other cases you get nice leather that feels great in your hand. Because of the quality it will last a lot longer than those other cheap cases. It provides great protection for your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5. Only negative is that it is a little snug and tough to remove. However if you pop off the two bottom corners and then flip it over and pull, it comes off pretty easy. Great job Apple!!!

    Nothing Tops This One

    • Written by from Union City

    I have gone through several iPhone 5 cases from other name brands that just never seemed to satisfy what I was looking for. I either found cases that were super light and thin but they did not cover or protect the chamfered edges. If I found one that covered the chamfered edges, it was too bulky and/or hid the beauty of iPhone. I picked up this guy in black the day I got the 5s and I was absolutely amazed at the amount of protection it offers for those of us who do not abuse our precious iPhones. It covers the chamfered edges beautifully while still allowing the chamfers to glisten and it is so light weight yet incredibly durable. Also, its made of leather so the quality is definitely there. Good job Apple for finally giving us a case that is worth every penny!
