    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.

    Love love love this!

    • Written by from North Brunswick

    I looked for days for the perfect case and this is it. It does not change the feel of the phone but the bumpy leather texture helps for a good grip. It fits perfectly. The white with gold trim looks sooo classy on my new white iphone 5. If you are thinking that it is a little pricey just remember that you may spend less but you may need to buy another soon. So what are you saving. Also the Apple store is one of the few that let's you receive a full refund for 14 days. Most others offer exchanges only. So why not give it a try. I know that you will love it as much as I do.

    It's a beautiful elegant case

    • Written by from Milton

    I've tried many cases and this is the one for my white phone. It's got a very clean, elegant and polish look. It might not give the best protection should you drop your phone though.

    Not Worth the $50

    • Written by from Carmel

    I bought this case, it looked sharp. But barely a month old, the case has discoloured on one side. It is overpriced. I am going to try and return it, but I am not sure Apple will take it back. That will upset me, so I am not sure what I will do.

    Not Worth The Money

    • Written by from Tonopah

    I had high expectations based on the reviews, but this looks so cheap - it's not worth the money. I'm returning it.

    Perfect case for me

    • Written by from Champaign

    I really didn't want to get a case for my iPhone 5 because I didn't want to lose the classy, pretty design of the phone itself. I decided to try this case though, and I'm so happy I did. The gold on the edges is definitely darker than I thought, more bronze, which I personally like. And the reviews that say it's flimsy are partly right- there are clearly sturdier iPhone cases. But, I need a little protection and something that looks nice, so this case is perfect for me. If you plan on dropping yours from a 5th story window, this is probably not for you.

    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.

    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.

    Nice.... buuuuut

    • Written by from Carrollton

    It's nice and looks great, but I'm scared this isn't going to protect the phone at all. It hardly weighs anything and doesn't feel as sturdy/thick as the case I had on my 4, which was also made by ADOPTED.

    The edge on the front is not raised, so if you have your phone upside down on a table, the screen is touching the table.

    I'm also 99% positive this thing will be dirty and dingy looking in no time.

    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.

    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.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Oakville

    I thought it would be more of a cream colour with the gold metal trim, its more of a bronze trim with pure white "leather" very cheaply made, waste of money.

    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.

    Love everything about this case!

    • Written by from Nashville

    This case epitomizes professionalism in the workplace. Not only does it look great but it offers great protection too! My colleagues are constantly asking where I got this case. Could not be happier!

    Decent i guess

    • Written by from milford

    I'd recommend people find something else. The bottom and top of the iPhone do not get covered at all, the case just wraps around the back and the sides (which is what most cases seem to be doing lately, no idea why). I personally prefer a case that wraps around the entire phone, so you cant get any nicks around any edge.

    Not a bad case, not great either. For 50$, do us both a favor and find something better.

    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.

    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.

    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!
