    Great Apple case, but

    • Written by from madison

    I needed a cover for my new 5s and decided to give this one a try. I have always, always, found apple cases/covers to be nothing special and way overpriced. I can easily say this is the best iPhone cover I have used to date, going back to the original iPhone. The case has a great feel, offers protection everywhere except the screen, and fits very snug. While it's still very overpriced at $39, I don't regret the purchase at all. My only dislike, aside from the price, are the available colors. They are just plain awful. They made 6 colors and none of them are really nice. The beige has a pinkish hue and I can't imagine anyone buying it.

    To sum it up, great case, although overpriced with poor color selection.

    Would love it but...

    • Written by from Cleveland

    It won't fit the iphone 5s dock, I have heard it will not fit the lightning to 30 pin adapter, and I don't feel the wear & tear of taking it off constantly is a good idea. Looking for a better solution, it looks like I'll need to return it :(

    Extraordinary !

    • Written by from Grapevine

    Without a doubt, this case is one of the most elegant looking, supremely crafted cases I've owned yet. It fits the phone so beautifully without adding any weight or bulk to the device. Over five years, five phone and some pretty expensive cases from some exclusive leather designers; at a third the price, this case in my opinion, exceeds them all. Well done Apple !!

    Sleek, Stunning, Sophisticated, and Excellent Quality

    • Written by from Hastings On Hudson

    As other reviewers have stated, I am so happy Apple has decided to make cases again.

    Generally I hate cases because it takes away from the beauty of such a beautiful piece of technology, but Sir Ives and his team have won me over on this one. This case compliments the iPhone's beauty instead of taking away from it...

    It is definitely of quality leather and does NOT have a "slippery" surface. It slides in and out of your pocket without the risk of getting caught up on fabric (giving way to user error) while providing a look of sophistication. It completely surrounds the phone, unlike some cases that leave the top and bottom exposed, leaving it open to damage in certain areas around the metal bezel. Overall I am extremely satisfied! Well worth the money. So much so, I bought two different colors! Highly recommended.

    Perfect case for a perfect iPhone

    • Written by from Cleveland

    This is something apple should have offered before it fits like a glove. Don't plan on taking it off quickly. I'm very pleased with it I normally hate cases but this adds to the phone.

    awesome case

    • Written by from Schuylkill haven

    to the reviewer that said hard to remove try using opening where camera is and it comes out easily. case is by far the nicest one out period. finally a case made by apple and the fitment is perfect! couldn't wait for one to be shipped so I picked one up at the apple store. you will not be disappointed!

    Huge surprise but in a disappointing way.

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    I have been waiting for a leather case that wraps around all the edges of the iPhone 5 for a while now. When I heard that Apple was finally releasing one on the same date as the iPhone 5s I got super excited. The excitement for the leather case was actually more than the iPhone 5s itself. When I got to the store though I was very upset. The case looks more like foam than leather. So much in fact that when I saw it I didn't believe it and was looking for the actual leather one.

    My review got 2 stars instead of 1 because it does wrap around the case all the way and does hold well but it will not be replacing my leather cases that leave the edges exposed.

    Great Case and Good Looking

    • Written by from Astoria

    I try to make objective reviews. I've had it for a month and it looks just like the day I bought it. I don't baby it but I keep it clean and don't abuse my phone. Many people complain it gets dirty and changes color. There's been very slight minimal darkening around the edges if you examinine it under a lamp, but the leather feels great and still looks great. The case weighs nothing. Fits my Klipsh 3.5mm jack and I love it.

    Love it, but does soil easy

    • Written by from Mt. Vernon

    I have the brown case on a white iPhone. It does soil pretty easy BUT The White pencil eraser works like magic. Rub it lightly and the case looks like new.

    This case fits better than any of the other 10 cases I have. Very slim and looks like it belongs.bon the phone. Love it!

    Dirt and Patina aren't the same thing

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case fits and feels great and really enhances the design of the phone, but I'll likely be returning it.

    I bought the tobacco color because I thought it would age richly like a nice wallet, but this aniline leather doesn't behave as expected. After four short days of careful use it looks filthy and tired, not patinated and 'broken-in'. I've tried leather cleaner/conditioner and it has little effect. Disappointing.

    So disappointed

    • Written by from medellin

    I feel very sad because I bought the Brown Case, and in less than two weeks and changed his appearance is very ugly and unpleasant. It is the first time I feel disillusioned with some of the Apple store.

    Excellent Case

    • Written by from Andrews

    I almost didnt buy this case because of all the bad reviews. Almost every review on here says they could not keep the case clean. Im so glad i chose to see for myself, because I love this case! I got the brown one so maybe the lighter colors are harder to keep clean. I have had mine for about two months and it is still as clean as the day I got it, Iv never even had to wipe a smudge off. I have not taken extra care with it, I use it with dirty hands while outside and even use it when my hands are covered in lotion. I have already dropped it several times and the case doesnt even have a scratch on it. It is still in perfect condition. I also dont find it hard to take off, it pops off the same as all other back cases I have owned. If you are looking for a heavy duty case then the otterbox would probally be better, but if you are just looking for basic protection that has a classy look this is the best option.

    Ok

    • Written by from Vernal

    I bought the red one and it's ok but I would NOT buy this case again. I gad it like two days and it stated to turn black I tried to clean it but it made it worse. I YOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

    Liked it at first

    • Written by from Cheshire

    I liked the style of this case very much when I first got it, although it was really tough to get on and off. When I took it off it squeezed the buttons so hard my phone would try to shut off. It would also randomly turn up the volume and make the volume buttons stick. After having it for maybe less than 6 months, it's now just starting to fall apart. The leather cracked near the vibrate switch, so it's loose. Now it comes off too easily. I thought it was pretty expensive and I hoped it would last awhile, but i'm already in the market for a new one. Disappointed.
