    Dirty, grimy, oily, cannot clean

    • Written by from RANCHO CORDOVA

    This case looks nice & fits great, but the leather soaks up oils from your skin, dirty and grim and dies in your jeans. After one week it feels like a dirty shirt collar. Too bad they don't also sell a product to get the "ring" out of your dirty Apple case! After - week i was grossed out to touch it. Tried leather clean, no avil.

    Worns quickly

    • Written by from The Woodlands

    Not even a month since I brought this case. It has already worn out on the edges and looks awful. Very hard to remove as well. Mute/Unmute button above the volume buttons is not easily accessible unless you tilt the phone or have bigger nails. Little bit more pressing required if you want to switch off the phone. Edges don't allow you to use the phone in a flexible manner (specially if you have any games like Real Race etc)

    I wish I can give Zero stars to this product.

    Note: Not sure about the Torn out issue for other colors

    Bose headphones don't fit with cover on!

    • Written by from SAN RAMON

    Liked this case until I tried to plug in headphones. Hole in case for headphone isn't large enough to permit full connection of headphones to headphone jack!
    Guess if I never plan to use headphones the case is nice. Not happy :(

    Very pleased with the Apple case

    • Written by from Senoia

    I have purchased so many iPhone cases over the years I have lost count. When I saw the new leather cases from Apple I thought they would be a nice change over the slim plastic cases I had been using for my iPhone 5.

    I have not always loved Apples offerings. I was not a fan of the Bumper Case and the first Smart Cover for my iPad scratched the iPad itself on the side but I figured this would be worth a shot and I'm really glad I did.

    The case fits perfectly, looks very well made, and the leather feels great. I like the simplicity of he logo on the back and no other markings. I think the brown leather looks great with the white iPhone and am looking forward to how it weathers and patinas with use.

    Well done Apple, $39 is still a lot for a case but this one finally feels worth it compared to so many of the others I have tried.

    Not up to Apple standards!

    • Written by from Perrysburgi

    I am very disappointed in this case. Although it is pretty and sleek when it comes out of the package, the material is terrible and looked horrible within a few days. My sister purchased the same case and experienced the same problem as I did. The edges become incredibly worn and it constantly looks dirty. Not worth the money.

    Terrible Case!

    • Written by from Boca del rio

    I bought the (RED), it really looks nice, but after 1 week the leather is so dirty. Save your money and get another case.

    Stylish, minimalistic, compact, perfectly fitted, pretty protective.

    • Written by from NAPERVILLE

    This case is great; the best leather case I have owned. It fits my iPhone 5 absolutely perfectly, with nice hard, non bending edges (NOT like the Bumper Case which flexed and stretched), a great texture to the leather, good "grippyness", good accessibility to ports, and buttons that are pretty easy to push. Plus it is the only case that legally wears the Apple log which some might enjoy.

    The only couple of small issues are: the off/on button on the top can be a bit more difficult to push then without the case (not terrible though, easy to get used to), and the headphone jack is recesses and pretty deep, so some headphones might fit (although ever since the first iPhone most headphone makers I think are making their plugs fit recessed headphone in's). Don't worry about the case being hard to take off; it sits so tightly on your phone that you shouldn't need to clean behind the case at all.

    Wears out very fast

    • Written by from Lenoir City

    I bought this due to the really nice color, which I felt would look very nice with my gold 5S. Unfortunately, as others mention in their reviews, the color starts to rub off of the leather after just a few days. I bought mine on a Saturday night and by Monday it was already bare around the corners. I think tanned leather would have been much better. This product is not up to par for Apple, and should be skipped by any 5 and 5s owners.

    Beautiful, then quickly a disappointment

    • Written by from CINCINNATI

    This brown leather case at first looked great and complimented the slate gray iPhone 5s beautifully. But, after a couple of months of carrying in my front pocket the brown leather looks dirty and dingy. The edges are a dreadful dark color. I have not found a good way to clean it. My previous Belkin leather case I used on my 4 for four years still looks as good as the day I bought it. I am so disappointed in this case and will take it back to an Apple store to try to get a refund.

    dont buy the brown one

    • Written by from Mogadore

    after about a month the edges and sides are becoming black and it will not come off. I have tried water, soap, laundry soap, leather cleaner, rubbing alcohol etc...... so, unless you like the 'used' look do not buy this in brown

    Beware of the poor quality leather!

    • Written by from Palo Alto

    Everything people are saying about this case is true. Yes, the fit and feel are great. But the leather is poor quality, with a finish which shockingly bad quality, and which absorbs oil and stains easily. In areas where the leather is formed (edges, buttons, etc) it stains into a hideous color, no matter how clean you keep it. Mine was a mess after just a week.

    If you are going to buy this, buy the black one. At least read the reviews first. This is probably the worst apple product I have ever purchased. Consider yourself warned.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Walpole

    I got the lighter beige color and after a week the "leather" gets so dirty and worn. Can't clean it. Easily dents when dropped. Waste of money- after a month, I'm getting a new cover.

    Worst cover ever

    • Written by from sioux falls

    Got this cover cause I loved the look of the leather case and thought it should be good quality being strait from Apple. Boy was I wrong, case wore out after about a month, leather is paper thin and wore though right away, worst $50 investment, save your money and buy a different case

    Really ugly and dirty after only a week

    • Written by from Atherton

    Plenty of bad reviews so I won't spend a lot of time. Bottom line, doesn't hold up to the standard I expected and just plain ugly after minimal use.

    bad case

    • Written by from Saginaw

    It Looked very nice and good looking at first, but after a few days the color around the corners start changing and getting darker and after a small falling down it will look like an old vintage case.

    DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Topeka

    Hi,

    I have had this case for 1 month. I have dropped my iPhone twice from a height of 12 inches accidentally and both times the screen was completely shattered. It does not protect the phone unless your phone falls directly on its back. Horrible case. Waste of 40 dollars. Won't even let me return the case anymore. Extremely disappointed with this apple product.

    Not impressed

    • Written by from Sutton

    The fit of the case is great and that is where it ends. I'm not impressed with the leather case. I've had it for almost a month and it already looks worn and used. I expected a lot more from Apple. I would recommend purchasing a different case from someone else. The edges of the case show the most worn, I'm not a heavy user. I usually just slide my phone in and out of my pocket. Every edge is worn out and probably won't last until Christmas.
