    The worst case ever.

    • Written by from FOSTER CITY

    Love the look of this case - classy, sleek, adds minimal bulk to the phone. Huge problem with this is the silver trim peels off. I've had this case for only a month and it looks awful. The silver portion has peeled off here and there and the case looks beat up. For the price, I expected far better quality.

    Great Design, Poor Quality

    I love this case but! What I thought was metal around the edge which made it look so sleek is actually plastic and after only 3 days the metallic colored paint started flaking off and became black. Not cool for a case that costs this much. Called me bummed.

    DEF not worth $50

    • Written by from Westville

    Very upscale "looking" case, but not at all more durable. The "metallic" rim around the perimeter is cheap plastic that chipped and broke the first week. The leather does seem fairly durable and you can clean it, but when the plastic rim breaks you have junk. I would consider it at a $25 price point....NOT $50.

    Nice but cheap

    • Written by from Plano

    Overpriced, edges aren't even real metal and paint will chip at any drop, the leather is good, but it's definitely not worth it. Otherwise it's a nice case.

    Very elegant and fit for purpose

    • Written by from Florida

    I must say this is the first real phone case that I will love to keep. Personally, I feel cases take the shine off iphones and make them look ordinary, but this is one case I'd like to have. It feels very comfortable and classy. It's pricy though, but who says iphone accessories are cheap?

    Very sophisticated

    • Written by from San Juan Capistrano

    Very sleek, elegant, classy case. I'm extremely picky and have been looking for a case for many months. Has a great feel, has a nice grip and easy to hold with the leather as compared to other plastic cases. Looks much better in person as the brown leather is a little darker than it appears on the internet. Totally worth the $50 as it is well made.

    Style and Fuction

    • Written by from Oakland

    I decided to retire my old plastic case and upgrade to something more stylish. Even though it's leather, this case is just as sleek and light as a simple plastic case. I drop my phone at least once a day, and the case has protected my phone just fine.

    Only case I'll use

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    This case bridges the gap between high design and functionality. Adds a very luxe feel to your phone, but still keeps it safe and protected. Leather seems very durable thus far. Probably the only iPhone case I've loved the look of.

    Lightweight Case.....with limitations

    • Written by

    I do like the look and feel of this case and would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could but there are some limitations to the case as a whole. First the price is kind of startling, if it was 35.99 I would be inclined to recommend it to more people. Additionally, as the other review noted during my time owning the phone I recognize its protection flaws. It will protect against most major scratches and normal wear, but it does lack some of the protection of the other cases (I assume mostly to keep its slim size). I also wish that they would have done a matte finish on the inside of the case, although you never see it when I snap the phone in and out (rarely) the gloss finish seems to scuff up around the corners of the inside, something I think would be muted with a matte finish. All in all this case has potential, and likely because the company is so new it is initially over priced and inherently must work out the kinks. I hope to see other versions down the road and will not exclude ADOPTED in the future as I see it has promise.

    Beautiful, tasteful, sleek profile

    • Written by from raleigh

    This case is not for everyone, mainly because it isn't designed to provide rugged protection. I bought the taupe leather case for my black iPhone, and it is very classy-looking with an excellent grip factor minus the typical bulk. The ADOPTED Leather Wrap Case succeeds at preserving the slim profile that is the essence of the 5 design while providing good basic protection from scuffs and scratches easily incurred in normal, everyday use. It may or may not prevent the front glass from breaking if it is dropped on a hard surface from any kind of height, but you will sacrifice some of the streamlined design attributes to get that. It all boils down to personal preference, usage, and priorities. For me, the beauty of the phone is not something I want to hide, so this works just fine for my purposes. And if one day it should incur damage from a bad drop, I have insurance for that.

    Useless decoration

    • Written by from BUFFALO GROVE

    This really can't be called a "case". It is merely a thin, silver colored, plastic snap in cover with leather strips attached to the back and sides. I wanted to like this case but when I actually put it on my iPhone, I felt like the victim of a scam. For this 75 cent piece of plastic and leather to cost $50 is ridiculous bordering on criminal. A phone case is supposed to look nice and PROTECT the phone. If you dropped your phone (and you will), this will do nothing to preserve it. Also, the leather is very slippery and therefore slips out of your hand easily. I returned it today.
