    Great Protection

    • Written by from Grapevine

    I was a little apprehensive of buying this one because I read some bad reviews, but the saleswoman suggested it because it had a large "lip" meaning the phone face wouldn't touch a surface. The case was super hard to get on. You have to snap it in over a dozen places. It's not the kind you want to take off and on, but I love it. A year having it on now, I've dropped my phone a dozen times on hard and carpeted surfaces, and it's protected it every time. The case hasn't broken on mine yet either. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. (You have to make sure it's completely on, not just partially together as I've read in some reviews that disliked it.)

    Love and Hate

    • Written by from Whitehall

    This case is super cute, fun, flirty... and slippery as all get out. I dropped my phone so many times because it just slides right out of your hand when you're pulling out of a bag/pocket. Thankfully, it protected my phone every time it fell, but the case cracked after the 4th drop and I had to find a new one. At $40 a pop, that can get expensive. If you're accident prone or keep your phone in a pocket, this case probably isn't for you.

    Looks fabulous on the black iPhone!

    • Written by from Madison Heights

    I loved the original version of this case, but I couldn't purchase it because the bottom of the case didn't work with my Magellan car kit. This updated version is open on the bottom so it works with my car kit, and it has a softer material that wraps around your iPhone and then the plastic piece snaps on around it. Fits snug, but easy enough to get off. I hate cases you have to fight to get off! The color combo looks stunning on the black iPhone. The black frame really looks classy against the screen. Be forewarned that you may experience issues with screen protectors if you don't have it aligned pretty close to perfect on your iPhone. I have one end of the screen protector at the top that's just slightly off and have seen a slight bubble with the case on, but I seem to have resolved it by pressing the corner in firmly. Looks great!

    I love this case!

    • Written by from Darien

    Not only is this case cute it protects your phone. I've dropped my phone a few times and there was no damage to the phone. There might get a few dings on it from dropping it but what do you expect will happen if you drop something. Now I'm just waiting to see if they make this case for the iPhone 5! Can't wait to see what Kate Spade comes out with for the iPhone 5!

    Cute but Short Life

    • Written by from Chesterfield

    I adored this case, thought it was cute, dropped the phone a few times and it protected it, but after only a few short months the end cracked and now the font and back won't stay snapped together and it won't stay on the phone - so now I need to get a new case. While I loved it while it lasted, it didn't last long enough!

    Blocked Calls

    • Written by from Eagan

    I was so excited for this case because it was so cute, but about 3 days after i started using the case I realized I wasn't receiving any calls. To make a long story short it turned out the case was blocking my calls. I'm not sure if it was a defect with my particular case or not but it was very disappointing.

    Great Case!!

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    Not only is this case adorable, it is amazing when it comes to protecting my iPhone. I am very clumsy and am always dropping my phone. This case has saved my phone many, many times, even times when I was sure it would pop right off. I absolutely love this case and am considering going out and getting another since my recent one has cracks in it from dropping my phone so many times!

    Cute, but not very functional

    • Written by from Woodbury

    For style alone, I would give this cover 5 stars. It is adorable and looks great on the black iPhone. The shiny plastic and Kate spade logo on the back make it very classy and cute. Unfortunately, this is one of the less functional cases I have used. The plastic is so slippery that it seems to fly out of my hand or off of surfaces all the time. Whenever it crashes to the ground, the case pops off and the pieces fly everywhere. Luckily, each time this has happened, my phone and the case have been ok - only a few dents on the corners of the case to show for it - so far, anyways. I am worried that one of these times my phone is going to crack because it seems to provide little to no protection when dropped - it can't possibly protect the phone if it comes apart! Also, every time it's dropped, it seems to warp the case or something because it never completely snaps back on anymore. I am constantly snapping one side or the other back closed again, only to have it pop open a few minutes later. I am willing to suffer a bit for fashion, but not where my expensive phone is concerned! I would rather have bought a plainer, more protective and functional case.

    Cute but not durable

    • Written by from Staten Island

    I first bought this case thinking it was insanely cute! I got it in the mail and was so happy with it it looked even better in person. However, very time I dropped my phone the case would come off and pieces would chip off. If you want a case that actually does its job, definitely do not buy this one.

    Love this case

    • Written by from Scottsbluff

    I love this case...I bought the case because it is cute.
    But, it has performed well, saving my phone from damage multiple times.
    In the most recent drop, I was sure the drop would kill my iPhone screen. Even my daughter was sure the phone was dead. We picked it up and just a nick to the corner of the case.
    The only drawback to the case is that it is not a case you'd remove frequently. However, I've had cases where I thought I'd damage my phone trying to get the case off and this is not one of those cases. I prefer cases where you can slide the end off for docking, but so far, I have only had problems docking on one device.
    It's worth the money, and the small hassle, for a case that protects my phone.

    I love the look of this case. THe problem is it's hard plastic and breaks. Based on the cost, I expected it to last a little longer....

    Stylish and Durable

    • Written by from Mechanicsville

    I was apprehensive to buy this case due to reviews that said it is not protective. I could not disagree more! I used this case for about 9 months and dropped it on almost a daily basis and my phone was never damaged in the slightest bit. One example: when getting out of my car one day, I dropped my phone, stepped on it and slid 3 feet. The case and phone were unharmed. Amazing!
    My case was becoming slightly dinged up around the corners and the area near the volume button had a small crack (due to excessive dropping) so I bought a replacement (Kate Spade) case to have on hand when this original case broke. After waiting 3 months, I went ahead and switched to my new case as the original was still holding strong.
    The only negative comment about the case is that it prevents using a docking station, but that was not a big deal to me.
    The case is adorable and protective and I highly recommend it.

    I was so disappointed in the quality of this case because I love Kate Spade. It was cheap plastic and cracked within the first month. I couldn't wait to get rid of it. :-(

    I gave it 2 Stars only for the polka dot cute factor.

    Pretty but NOT durable

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    The case looks nice, but it broke (the pink plastic on the outside snapped) within 4 months of having it. I am rough on my phone, but I had my previous case (incase) for 3 years without any problems! It's also a very big case - so it makes your phone look HUGE!

    I adore this case! I got it in 2011 and I've purchased many cases in between, but I've always gone back to this case! Cute and very protective.

    Cute but not good!!

    • Written by from Marshall

    So I loved the look of the case. Yet we all ended up at some point dropping our phones. The first drop it was fine and then the second drop the case broke apart ( so I just had to snap it back together), and then it just kept snapping apart and would not stay on. It ended up breaking because its made of some kind of slim plastic. Such a waste on money after buying it. Eventually I bought a new cover some uncommon from Verizon. By far the best cover and still had the poka-dots.

    Not satisfied at all

    • Written by from Cook

    I received this as a gift for Christmas and the first night it was on it broke. And it even shattered the back of my phone as well. Very cheaply made and will never buy another Kate Spade product.

    This case is extremely cute but not functional at all. After just 2 months of having it the plastic on the side cracked and then the plastic on the top. This happened with out me even dropping the phone, so it scared me to know what would happen if I did drop it. Also this case isn't compatible with a lot of aux cables so in ordered to listen to my itunes in the car I would have to remove the phone from the case. Making it very inconvenient. Wouldn't buy again.

    Cute but not durable

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Really sharp and good looking. Bought one for my wife and she had to take the phone in and out of the case to charge the phone a few times until she got the right adapter. It wouldn't stay snapped together after that. Bought a 2nd and never opened up the case. It fell apart fairly quickly due to normal daily use. Good looking product but not up to real world use.
