Cute little book.
I bought this from the actual Apple store in Sacramento. I played around with it a bit before purchasing just to see if I was okay I bought this from the actual Apple store in Sacramento. I played around with it a bit before purchasing just to see if I was okay with how it sat in the case before purchasing. Here are somethings that don't knock any stars off, but you should be aware of:
It feels funny talking with the phone to your ear. I use an ear piece, bluetooth or speakerphone normally, so this is not a big deal to me.
Fits only a few credit cards/ID - 3 total. If you try to jam too many more than it looks bulky.
There is no hole in back for the camera. I answered a question on this that details a case I visually saw in the store (owner had taken case to shoe repair store and had them punch a perfect little circle) and he showed me that taking pictures was a not a problem. I haven't done this yet so I just move the camera up a touch out of the case and take the picture. No big deal to me, but if you are a serious camera user, maybe this isn't the case for you. I take a couple pictures a day and I am happy with it.
Basically, the case is not for the heavy user who will drop it, get it wet, or uses their camera a whole lot. If you have an iphone and carry it more than you use the functions, then this is for you. I use it quite a bit, but I accept the fact that there are some limitations. I won't subtract any stars because I bought it after playing with it and fully knowing the drawbacks ... full disclosure for myself :) …

LOVE this thing.
I almost didn't buy this because there is no hole for the camera and I didn't think I'd use it that much as a wallet, but I was wr I almost didn't buy this because there is no hole for the camera and I didn't think I'd use it that much as a wallet, but I was wrong! I am always switching out purses and wallets and now that I keep only the most important cards in my BookBook, I am good to go regardless of what purse I'm using! I get SO many compliments on it and it matches my laptop and ipad cases. Not having a hole for the camera IS a design flaw, but not that big a deal. It is easy enough to just shove it up an inch to take the pic. The leather is absolutely holding up well, and I have zero regrets about buying this great and unique little phone case! …

Even though its not one of the cases that says it will protect like crazy from drops, it has done a great job at it. Not a single scratch chip, mark on my phone. Having my wallet as my phone case as well is super handy too. I get compliments all the time on it. When ever I pull out my wallet to pay for things people are always asking and noticing it. Best Case Ever. …

Love, love, love this case!
I LOVE this BookBook! It is the handiest thing I could have ever found to carry my phone and basic ID in. It holds my phone, dri I LOVE this BookBook! It is the handiest thing I could have ever found to carry my phone and basic ID in. It holds my phone, driver's license, military ID, one debit card, & one credit card, plus two paper medical insurance cards, without bulging - everything I need for any foreseeable situation! My husband bought it for me almost a year ago and it has not left my side. It is all I need to run to the store, mall, restaurant, or just about anywhere I need money & my phone. It is true that you cannot take a picture while the phone is in the case, but I'm not the person you see constantly snapping photos. This case works for me better than anything else out there. I hope they make it for iPhone 5 as well, because I plan to get one before the year is out. …
