    Does not feel like genuine leather ...

    • Written by from Laurel

    They make a version of this case for iPhone 6 and I made the mistake of buying one. It took about 1 month to ship and it does not feel like genuine leather. It's labeled "leather" but feels suspiciously synthetic. Even if it's genuine leather - it's quite thin and does not have a premium feel.

    While waiting for the Adopted case to arrive, I eventually grew impatient and decided to go to an Apple store and purchase Apple's leather case. Now that I have both, I can report that Apple's case is much nicer and is genuine leather. If you want genuine leather - buy the Apple case - it has a very high quality look and feel and is worth the slightly higher cost. I can't report on how well either will wear since they are both brand new, but I don't plan to use the Adopted case - it just has an inferior feel.

    Leather not so good

    • Written by from Capital Federal

    After a month leather starts changing color . This is because is not a good quality and the handcraft is terrible . After checking I notice the case is made in china. Massive production not so good for me . Nice look and feel at the begining.

    Does NOT look as pictured

    • Written by from Alachua

    Went into the store to look at it before purchasing and glad I did because this case is horrible. The gold color looks nothing like the iphone gold color, more like a bronze than a gold actually. The leather looks fine but overall it's very cheaply constructed. The weight is not at all substantial - not that I am looking for a heavy case since nobody wants something that weighs their light iPhone down. But this is made from cheap, chintzy material. Craftsmanship is terrible and it definitely looks cheap. For the money, buy something durable and beautiful!

    Silver indeed flakes off

    • Written by from Naperville

    I absolutely love the look of this case but as the other reviewers noted the silver began chipping off less than two weeks after i got it. I will say that adopted has fantastic customer service. I received a response within a few hours offering me a replacement cover. I just had to email a copy of my receipt and photos.

    "Leather" doesn't last

    • Written by from Sydney

    I bought the cream and gold case, and initially I absolutely loved it! But only a few months in and the cream has discoloured (despite my taking very good care of it and cleaning it often), and now I'm starting to doubt whether it's real leather as the discolouration appears more like the cream dye coming off rather than dirt.

    Silver Flakes Off

    • Written by from Oakland

    LOVED the blue leather. The silver paint flaked off first one, so I returned it and they sent me another one and said it would be fine. It wasn't. It flaked off within a week also. Loved the case but now it looks AWFUL so I need a new one.

    Beautiful but not happy

    • Written by from Cedar Park

    I love the look of this case. I get a lot of compliments on it too. However, I've had it for two weeks and the silver is rubbing off around the edges.... The bottom and top edges have big black marks where the silver rubbed off and along the sides where I usually hold the phone has black spots as well. Just for comparison, I had my previous phone cover for two years. It wasn't perfect but looked pretty good!! I'm not happy that this case isn't holding up better.

    Nice at first - but wears quickly

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    I got this case for the obvious reason - I love the way it looks.

    After a week or so, the white leather started to stain blue from my jeans.

    After a couple of months, the gold paint started chipping.

    The case looks better than any other, but I'd only recommend it if you can replace it at least once a month.

    Beautiful design but doesn't last

    • Written by from FOSTER CITY

    Love the look and design but the silver started chipping and peeling only after a few weeks. Waste of money.

    I got a white one with bronze/gold and it is ALMOST perfect match with my gold iPhone 5s. My only complain would be the edge around camera part which is not fully painted with gold/bronze but shows more of black edges. It's a real bother. Otherwise it's goes so well with the gold version of iPhone 5s. (Just got this case so I don't know how fast it gets dirty on white leather parts...)

    Don't buy the white case

    • Written by from Dallas

    At first the case looks beautiful but the white "leather" starts to come off and it looks dirty and ugly. The dark gold surrounding also starts chipping.

    Paint Chips... But they'll replace it

    • Written by from North Branford

    I have this case in moonlight/silver. It is a very pretty color and looks great. The paint started chipping off the very first day, just from normal handling. I've never dropped it. However, ADOPTED sent me a brand new one after I emailed customer support. We'll see how long this one lasts.

    Buyer beware.

    For looks, not protection.

    • Written by from Wesson

    Most negative reviews I see are about the case degrading or not looking cosmetically appealing or that it did not protect the phone. This is a leather case, not hard plastic or metal. It's not meant to be carried around in your pocket or thrown in your purse. If you want leather to stay beautiful and flawless you have to take care of it just like a leather couch or your leather seats in your car or it will degrade substantially. This also goes for the protection part. Thin leather wrapping is NOT made to protect your phone, only to make it look stylish which this case is perfect for. This case is beautifully crafted and looks amazing on the iPhone 5 and I would recommend it to anyone who wants their phone to look good but takes care of their phone enough to not worry about it tarnishing or being dropped.

    Beautiful, But Doesn't Last

    • Written by from New York

    I LOVE this case. Slim, gorgeous, elegant... But unfortunately it just doesn't hold up after a few months of use. The cream leather started to wear-- not just showing the expected grime (which I carefully cleaned off), but changing texture slightly on the edge and sides. It could be argued that, hey, you're buying a white leather phone case, what do you expect? But the inner plastic of the case itself seemed to warp after 2-3 months, not fitting as tightly or snugly as before. I can feel it clicking against the phone when I hold it in my hand.

    All in all it's a gorgeous case that I will probably buy again just because I love the look so much. But I wish I had known it only has about a 6 month lifespan.

    Do NOT buy this case to protect your phone.

    • Written by from New York

    I bought this iPhone case, despite its hefty pricetag, because it was stunning and because I understood it be something that would protect my phone. It did not. I dropped my phone on the ground from the smallest of heights (my own bag) and the glass front of my phone shattered into a zillion pieces. The phone is destroyed. This case did nothing, nothing, nothing to protect it. Do understand that the lip of the case barely wraps around the phone -- it's not raised enough to protect the face of the phone from anything, clearly. So, now I'm out the price of this case AND the phone it didn't protect. Trust me, you don't need this trouble for something pretty. I would give it zero stars if I could.

    Best case for a white iPhone

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I searched and searched for a nice case that wasn't clearly targeted towards women that matched the white iphone5. There's only one, and its this case. I get a lot of comments on it from everyone that sees it. I've owned smartphones for 6 years now and I've never found a case that I was willing to keep on my phone until this one.

    Spring in my step!

    • Written by from Laguna Beach

    I just picked up this case for spring. Super stylish and feels really great in your hand. I'm pretty clumsy and have dropped my phone about 3x so far, no cracks and that case is still perfect!

    Grabbing one for mom this Mothers Day too!

    Very Sophisticated Looking

    • Written by from indialantic

    I've had this "off white" case for one week and I love how it looks and feels in my hand. The gold color has changed to a bronze, though, and if I ever dropped it I'm almost positive that it wouldn't do very well at protecting the phone. I've gotten a lot of comments on how beautiful it is, though. So if you're looking for style, get it. If you're looking for protection, look elsewhere.

    Very happy with my purchase!

    • Written by from Victoria

    I bought the white with gold trim case about 3 months ago and am very happy with my purchase! As i ordered it from the Apple website, I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to get, especially at $50, but it is a great case, and has turned out to be a LOT more durable than expected. The white leather has stayed perfectly white, and the trim has not discolored at all, though it is more bronze than gold, but it looks great. I have continued to shop around for iPhone 5 cases, just to see what's out there, and have yet to find one that I like more. If you are the kind of person that drops your phone often, this may not be the case for you, but I personally take care of my things and this is perfect for me.
