    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.

    Fragile

    • Written by from Bishops stortford

    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.

    Great But Expensive

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    This leather case is simply phenomenal. Great in-hand feel that is unmatched by any other cases of any kind and price. It matched my iPhone 5S so beautifully, from the layout to the cut-off part of the case... In addition, we hardly see the dirts when compared to other colours. However, if this case is cheaper, for example $29 instead of $39, I will have no more complain, and no one will.

    Apple High Quality!!!

    • Written by from King George

    Best iPhone case out there! I got the black case, because I had a red one that had discolored. I can say that both are really nice, but the discoloration in the black will most likely just blend in. Definitely buy this!!!

    Elegant style, perfect fit and finish but pricy

    • Written by from Honolulu

    The Apple Store offered me $183 trade-in allowance for my old iPhone 4s so I decided to splurge on an iPhone 5s with Black Leather case. Indeed, this is the nicest iPhone case I've seen: supple leather of consistent texture, handsome appearance and perfect fit. The design is understated, simple and elegant. It does not detract from the slender form factor and basically feels like an integral part of the phone. It also feels wonderful in the hand: warm and natural but with just the right amount of texture and grip.

    Protection it is minimal--similar to a decent light duty plastic shell case--and should take light knocks without flinching. The case feels like it is made of a thin plastic shell wrapped in leather and lined with fuzzy micro fiber cloth. I'm impressed the volume buttons can be covered in leather and yet work perfectly. Forty bucks is a lot of bread to drop on a phone case. But then many other 5s cases looked cheap and plastic and cost nearly as much. If you enjoy the owning the best and prefer a case that complements rather than shouts, this just may be the one for you. I really like it and consider it money well spent.

    Thank you Apple

    • Written by from Mineral Point

    Great case, the best I have had. Perfect Fit, Form and Function. The cost justifies itself after you have spent twice as much on inferior cases. Would buy again in a heart beat.

    I LOVE this case!

    • Written by from Frisco

    This was the first case I bought for my iPhone, and it's the only one I use! I love the feel of it in my hand. Makes the phone easy to hold onto, and it looks amazing! It doesn't add any size to the phone at all and it slides easily in and out of my pocket.

    Great job Apple!

    iPhone 5s Case

    • Written by from Calumet

    After trying several cases for my iPhone 5 (this case fits the original 5 perfectly) I finally ended up with this one. I got the black color, and I'd have to say it looks great, fits perfectly, and is exactly what I wanted. It shows off the thinness of the phone, but has enough of a lip to protect the screen if you lay it face down. My only complaint is this: I bought the red case for my girlfriend, and it immediately got quite dirty; it shows staining and dirt more than any other case I've seen. I tried using some leather cleaner on it which helped somewhat, but it is still quite dirty around the edges. If you're going to get this case, get the black one.
