    Good product: well thought out

    • Written by from Irvine

    First day of having this wallet/case, I had a few gripes:
    -The wallet would not close all the way unless I put the phone face up and the weight closes it. It really bothered me.
    -Very uncomfortable talking on the phone. Wasn't sure how anyone could hold the phone.
    -No place for cash. It's too big and won't let it close on me.

    Having the case for a month, I can say I like it!
    -The wallet fully closes now whichever side I put it on.
    -I learned that I needed to fold back the case with the credit cards and such sticking out. The case gave grip to the phone and now I feel uncomfortable without it.
    -Still no place for cash, but I feel like it grew on me. I carry 3 credit cards, my license, and a couple receipts and it's more than enough.

    Overall, I would recommend the case, but it does take getting a little use to. I'm the type of person that always forgets either his wallet or phone, and having two in one makes forgetting both much harder. It is a little thicker in my pocket, but I've gotten use to it, and I don't need to worry about having my keys in the same pocket as my phone anymore!

    A++ would recommend!

    Twelve South does it again

    • Written by from ROSEVILLE

    I love this latest BookBook. The snap in case is an improvement over the old slide in type of the 4s version. I also like the camera hole and the fact i can hold more cards is a plus. You can't go wrong if you get this. It eliminates the need for a phone case and a wallet. I have one on my MacBook air and my New iPad, awesome!!!!!! I get a lot of complements when people notice it.

    Beautiful case. Beautiful functionality.

    • Written by from Centerville

    This case has exceeded my expectations.

    The Good: My iPhone 5 snapped right in and is held very securely. I have my drivers license plus 3 credit cards in it and it doesn't feel stretched at all. The case is incredibly attractive and looks like on of those little field notebooks. When I show it to people they all comment on how beautiful it looks and feels. Some of complained of call quality going down but after making several test calls I was told that my calls sounded great. This newer version also has the camera hole in the back unlike the one for the iPhone 4/4s.

    The Bad: If you use hands free accessories to talk (e.g. car connection, Bluetooth earpiece, or headphone/speakers included with phone) then this case is ideal. If you speak by placing the phone to your ear a lot, then you might be a little inconvenienced as it is slightly more bulky and you have to flip the one side of the book to the back.

    The Ugly: None. This case is absolutely beautiful.

    Wonderful way to store the essentials together

    • Written by from Boston

    I'm thrilled with this iphone wallet! I previously had a knockoff version that wouldn't close and could only hold two cards, which just didn't work for me. I'm glad that I took the chance on ordering this, even though it was more expensive. The leather smell is wonderful, but the most important part for me is that the spine is crafted like an actual book. It is stiff and already made to account for a full wallet, so it will lie closed even when it has cards and cash in it.

    The full wallet fits in the breast pocket of my coats and the back pocket of my jeans, so I can always carry the essentials without needing an entire purse.

    LOVE IT!

    • Written by from wilmington

    I was a little unsure about purchasing the Book Book for my new iPhone 5. However, due to me enjoying a case that held just two cards (id), I figured I'd give it a go. I have had it for well over 2 weeks now and couldn't be more happy with my purchase. The edges are wearing well and it definitely looks like an old book, yet it is now the only "wallet" I carry. It has even been a conversation piece at a recent party; friends thought it looked like a little Bible. I do have to admit, the book book does not hold cash well which only allows you to keep a couple bills that must be folded twice to fit. Also, when the case is full it will not stay completely closed unless laid on the screen side, depending on the number of bills you try to put in it. However these two issues are such a small problem that I would never return this case. It was made to show age and looks great doing it. I 100% recommend this for anyone!

    Goodbey purse, Hello Twelve South BookBook Case for iPhone 5.

    • Written by from PENSACOLA

    I fell in love the moment I saw it......purchased it within 5 min of that. The leather is great quality, it's made very well and will last without falling apart.....and the convenience of it.....well, need I say more?? The best thing to have when running an errand and you don't want to drag along your 20lb purse. An evening on the town?....just stick it in your pocket. Men that goes for you too.

    It is a considerably pretty case, I cannot love it more! Beautiful color and you never worry about whether it will become old.
    The feature and color are both fit for girls and boys.
    Thanks for my beloved finance to send it to me with the iPhone5 as the Valentine's Day gifts~

    Great case no complaints

    • Written by from Irvington

    I love this case! People are alway complimenting me when they see it. They think its a book or a Bible. I have NO problems with people hearing me or I hearing them when having a conversation. As far as the comment stating that it doesn't close, it does close after putting a few business or credit cards in the wallet side, which what it was made for.

    Skeptical at first but......

    • Written by from Ladson

    I was skeptical at first buying this because of the price and reading the reviews how much bulk it added but on a whim I bought it anyway and I love it. I have gotten a lot of great compliments on it. Yes it is a little pricey, bulky, and it can't close if you stick your money in it but the feel and make of it is a reason why of the price tag is high but hey if you love to brag on a much nicer case then buy all means buy it. I have the brown bookbook with a white iphone 5 and it looks good! Very pleased

    Amazing Case!!

    • Written by from Rocky River

    I have have this case with my iPhone5 for a year now and absolutely love it!! However, there are a couple of things to mention after reading some of the other reviews.

    I have heard that the case won't close all the way. This case is leather and just needs broken in. It easily holds my 6 Cards, License, a couple of receipts and some cash and lays flat without issue. It fits nicely in my back pocket without any discomfort.

    As for all of the comments of people not being able to hear you or your voice being muffled while using the case. It is not a case issue, it is a phone issue. There are three mics on an iPhone 5. When you open the case and flip it back to use the phone it covers the little mic between the camera lens and flash. I think it is to help with noise cancellation. When it is covered it cancels out part of your own voice making it sound muffled. It took me a while to figure this out, but once I did, I just don't fold the case all the way back when talking. I now have no issues.

    I used to misplace my wallet all the time, forget my license, forget cards or cash. Since getting this case I am never without these necessities! I actually got on today to buy one for my wife. I can't imagine any other case being as functional and looking so good in the process. I more than recommend:)

    Unique and practical iphone case

    • Written by from WEST HAVEN

    This is my 3rd BookBook Case for my 3rd iphone. This case works for my iPhone 5S. One HUGE improvement is that they added an opening for the camera -- my BookBook case for the iPhone 4 did not have one. I have had lots of compliments on this case. It also holds your driver's license and a few credit cards. It is Leather, so it takes a little break-in, but gets better with age.

    Most amazing case I've ever owned.

    • Written by from Granger

    I've had a lot of phones, a lot of cases, and a lot of experience with these products. This is by far my favorite. Eliminates the need for a wallet, offers quite a bit of protection for your phone (I would highly suggest using a screen protector in addition to the case), and it look cool. I get complimented daily on the case. Last thing I'll say is the quality of the case is very nice, worth the price tag.

    Love my BookBook

    • Written by from Memphis

    I purchased a Vintage Brown BookBook along with my iPhone 5, and I love it. I often get compliments on its looks, and I love not carrying a wallet - BookBook and keys and I'm set. Everything is a little snug when you first get it, but give it time - it is leather, after all.

    I'm a heavy user of my iPhone - lots of music, video, talking, texting, photo taking and in-and-out of my pockets. The BookBook has never presented a problem for any of these. After a few months, the leather has started to scuff a little with all the use, but that just adds to the vintage feel for me. I've had a few drops, and though I always hold my breath a little since it isn't a huge 'protection' case, it's always protected my phone fine.

    The single negative I have is that some of the thin leather that covers the phone clip has started to peel. I do wish there was a way to carry cash, but I don't think that could be accomplished without it becoming prohibitively bulky. I recommend the BookBook, especially if you like the vintage look and feel.

    Great idea!

    • Written by from MAULDIN

    This wallet/case is great! In addition to the comfort of not having a wallet in your back pocket it also allows a more comfortable ride on my motorcycle. After about 2 years it has finally started to dhow some wear & tear, but as much as I use my phone this is to be expected. I have had many complements on the case and a few people have bought it because they liked mine so much. I would recommend this wallet/case to everyone.

    Really love this case.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    First off, I'd like to say that everywhere i go i get comments on this case. I should sell them on the side since I'm asked so much times...what and where i got it. High quality build, durable and holds iPhone tightly. The camera hole on the back is a nice touch. I use an app called" key chain" to rid myself of all the store member cards and freeing myself of the Castanza wallet. I used to forget either my phone or my wallet so having them together has been a wonderful change. The leather is very tight when new but after a few months of use its brakes-in nicely. (Like a baseball glove) Overall I love the case and it has protected my iPhone 5 from many falls. The only improvement would be to perhaps add a leather strap to lock it shut when closed. This would keep it closed if it were to fall in the open position.(protecting phone) I have a BookBook for my macbook pro as well as my iPad and together they look amazing. Again...everywhere you go you will get comments on how cool they are!

    The Best Travel Case

    I use this case when I travel for business or pleasure, it holds your license and cards needed for the trip. People do not know what it is which is why I love it.
