I had this same case but for the iPhone 4 and loved it (would have rated it a 5 star). Seems this time around they have used a different material and pattern. The original was a smooth leather that had some give when sliding in cards. This version is patterned and doesn't feel like real leather. It is also, as the above poster noted, very tight and difficult to pull the cards out. Maybe with time it will soften and loosen. So at this point I rate it a 2 but hope with time and age to go to a 3.5 to 4.
