    Iphone 5s Black Leather Case

    • Written by from Ingewood

    Purchased this item about 5 months ago. It was great at first, perhaps the best case i had bought, plenty of failed cases before this one. So it was great for like, the first month, then wear and tear was starting to make its mark, and now, the back is so marked and scratched, and i just carry it in my pocket.

    Very nice but with one huge flaw

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    This case is very nice overall. It fits perfectly, looks very sharp, and feels nice in my hand. The only big problem I have with it is that the cutout for the headphone jack is too small, so several of my audio patch cables will not fully seat. Since the case is leather, modifying the case to open up the hole isn't really an option. I am faced with the prospect of having to search around for an audio cable that is very thin to be able to fit correctly, or switching to another case. I do know however that the "amazon basic" patch cable that I have and 2 other generic cables will not fully seat when this case is being used. This is a huge problem since I use the audio patch cable to listen to music during my daily 2 hours in my car commuting. Its a shame because otherwise this case is perfect.

    This case gets dirty in a month and cannot be cleaned

    • Written by from Independence

    Looks nice, and offers great protection. However, this is a $40 case that looks embarrassing bad after owning it one month. I can't take it any longer and now I am buying a new case. The problem is it will dirty fast (on every color but black), and there is nothing that can be done to clean it.

    Not cool.

    Broke my phone :(

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The little plastic piece that bridges over the charger port snapped off and was the perfect size to get jammed into the port. Now the plug wont go into the phone because the plastic piece is still in there. Pretty unfortunate :(

    Very Pretty

    • Written by from Birmingham

    It is a very presentable and stylish case. Though it gets SUPER dirty! Also it is a little pricy. I got it on sale for about $17, but I think the normal price is way to high. So overall it is a very nice plain case, but it has its faults.

    Great case, but not perfect

    • Written by from Richland

    Very well designed. It's comfortable to hold, looks great, and doesn't take away from the design of the iPhone. Fairly priced as well. I've dropped my phone numerous times (though never with the screen facing the ground), and the phone is still in perfect condition, with the case suffering minor scratches and bumps.
    Some things to consider:

    -Volume buttons are not perfectly designed. Even so much as a light touch can make the phone's volume buttons click and move, and although this doesn't fully 'press' the button, this can get annoying if I am holding the phone with my hand on top of them.
    -The headphone jack cutout can be too small for some headphones, requiring you to slip off the bottom of the case for them to fit.

    Besides these minor issues, this is still a great case for those who want decent protection, along with a great design and reasonable price. Highly recommended!

    Great Case

    • Written by from London

    I purchased the brown case with my brand new gold iPhone 5s. The case works great feels great and just is great in general. The only problem with the case is that the color wares and beomes dirty easily.

    I really enjoy this case.

    Overpriced and underwhelming

    • Written by from Little Elm

    If you can get past the steep cost of this case, you will be initially impressed by the firm grip of the shell and soft feel of the leather.

    Within weeks, though, the flaws will start to show up. I have the brown version of the case, and within the first month it was already getting discolored by dirt and smudges from normal daily use.

    A year later, this case has become fully useless due to the fact that it has a very loose grip on my phone at this point. The phone slips out and the buttons are rarely flush against the phone's counterpart.

    The case held up well to drops and damage, but it is functionally unusable now.

    Good for looks, bad for protection

    • Written by from LAS CRUCES

    This case looks very good and has a nice grip but -in my experience- is no good protecting you iPhone in accidental drops.

    It has 2 clear weak spots in the area of the audio jack and the lighting cable jack. My phone had a 40 cms fall to a granite floor and was damaged in the aluminum structure (luckily the screen remained undamaged).

    Does NOT hold up.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Although this case looks great, it is not worth the price because it does not hold up.

    My case only lasted for about a year. For less money, you can buy a sturdier case and have it last over twice as long.

    Get black or get none

    • Written by from Lavallette

    I liked the case at first, slim and great look and feel but I got it in green, which was my first mistake. I only had it for a week i dropped it once and the leather already ripped. Also anything gets it dirty: the die from my pants, dirt from my hands, anything! my green leather case is a brown and blue mess. Refuse to use. I might actually like it if it was black since you would be unable to really see the dirt and scratches. I do no recommend though...

    Best Case I have ever owned

    • Written by from Elk Mound

    The case fits perfect and looks great too. I have had the case for a year now and it looks as good as it did when I bought it. I would
    recommend this case to anyone.

    Awesome case!

    I bought this case last year when the iPhone 5s came out and it's still running strong today! Definitely durable and high quality. Love how the leather ages. I'm going to buy a second one for sure!

    Apple's iPhone 5s Case - Black $39.00

    • Written by from Billings

    I purchased an inexpensive case when I purchased my iPhone 5s just to have some protection until I found the perfect case. I searched numerous stores and web sites and read reviews of hundreds of cases. Some were sleek. some were expensive, some were guaranteed to be indestructible, and some were packed with features but nothing really looked as though it belonged on the iPhone 5s. I then came across the one Apple designed and lists first in iPhone 5s accessories under cases on their web site. It is made of fine leather, is minimal in design, provides excellent protection, fits the iPhone 5s brilliantly, has a fabulous feel in my hand and is absolutely elegant in appearance. It is truly the case that belongs on the iPhone 5s.

    Extremely disappointed

    • Written by from Yule

    The case is very slim and smooth to the touch, however it has zero protection! I dropped it while sitting down and the phone fell completely out of the case and was damaged on the corner. Not even a week later, it fell from an end table and once again the phone fell out of the case, this time shattering my screen. Save your money and just enjoy the design of the phone itself, because a case is pointless like this. Very disappointed with apple on this one.

    Spend your money on black or elsewhere.

    • Written by from Overland Park

    This is a beautiful, well fitting case. Until you use it very long and the leather gets very dirty. I was extremely disappointed in the way it looked within a month, and there's no cleaning it! Come on Apple, you can do better for a $500.00 phone!

    The only case you will need.

    • Written by from Valparaiso

    This is by far the best case you can own for an iphone 5 or 5s.
    Fits perfectly, dirt and dust doesn't get inside it, the microfiber inside keeps the phone in perfect shape. The leather feels very nice to the touch.
    Perfect fit, perfect feel. I hope apple keeps making cases for future phones.
