    Phenomenal Case

    • Written by from Sterling

    I bought this case and was skeptical at first because of the price, but after I put this case on my iPhone it was a perfect fit. This case was amazing. This case adds little to no bulk. The case feels great in your hand. This case feels very premium with the leather. I highly recommend this case to anyone!!!

    Nice quality.

    • Written by from Covington

    Very nice quality case for your iPhone 5s. I decided to go with the black one on my silver iPhone 5s because the other colors will end up looking dirty over time. It was a good choice! The case feels very nice in the hand and keeps your iPhone feeling thin and light. I've had the case for about a month and it has NOT discolored. I'm not the type of person who drops my phone very often, but I have dropped it once with the case on and it did protect it from breaking. I don't think this case is really designed for drops, so if your'e the type of person who drops your phone a lot, look else where. If you're like me, this case is for you!

    Manage expectations

    • Written by from Kitchener

    There are a lot of complaints that the case doesn't protect the phone enough. I think we need to manage our expectations... If you're buying a SLIM leather 'case' for your phone, it is immediately obvious that it isn't going to protect your phone much form a drop from waist-height, let's say. If that is the kind of protection you want, I would think it's obvious to go for more cushioned, silicone, thicker cases or sleeves. I purposely bought this one because it was slim and smooth (ie can slide in and out of my pocket, unlike more rubberized styles). There is basically no padding inside the case, but it DOES have that microfibre-like stuff lining the case, which, for me, was the deciding point against some of the other kevlar or hard & thin cases. There were some good looking wooden ones, but there was no lining inside.

    My BIGGEST complaint is that some headphone plugs cannot fully plug into the jack bc the hole in the case is too small. Could just be with my particular headphones, but it is a sticking point for me. Another pair of earbuds slides into the headphone jack no problem.

    Very durable

    The leather case has been on my iphone for 1.5 years and it has held up amazingly well. The leather has not cracked nor has the dye worn off, it still looks great.. Extremely pleased with it.

    Doesn't work with the 30 pin lightning adapter

    • Written by from Nashville

    Very nice case that protects the iPhone well. However don't hope on using it with the 30 pin to Lightning adapter since the hole at the bottom of the case is too small to allow a connection with the adapter. It is very tight so removing it every time you need to use the adapter is not really an option. Plus this would damage the case overtime.
    To me this is a huge drawback.
    Apple changed the design for the iPhone 6 case but didn't update the design of the iPhone 5 case.

    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...

    Awesome case!

    • Written by from El Paso

    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!
