    Looks Great! The first day...

    • Written by from MIAMI

    The title basically sums it up. This case looks awesome the first day. After that the color quickly changes and the case begins to look very dirty. Everyone says that so let me give some further information.

    I didn't put this case in the pocket of new jeans that were still bleeding dye. I'm a frequent hand sanitizer, and I didn't leave the device laying in some filthy area. That said.

    The point of me purchasing a case was to avoid having to "baby" my phone. The case is actually more delicate than the phone to an extent.

    I can read so I understand the color was meant to change. The actually extent and end result was unexpected. I had to return. The case looked horrible.

    Looks awful after 2 days of use

    • Written by from Plantation

    Don't even think about it. It's color fades off very quickly, I bought this and had to return it after 3 days of use, it looked like it had 5 years of use.

    You will be regretting how a $40 case makes your new phone looks so ugly.

    Dirt magnet

    • Written by from plainview

    i couldn't wait to get this case when i saw it on apple's website. I love the look and feel, however it is a dirt magnet. its been exactly a week and my case looks like it's a year old. i am a neat person and wash my hands regularly...but it doesn't matter with this case. i spoke with an apple rep and i was told to use a damp cloth to clean it, but that made it worse. Now there is black marks on it. $40.00... I'm very disappointed and I'm bringing it back!

    Nice for one day only

    • Written by from ROCHESTER

    I don't recommend this case. My red case looked great for one day then the edges turned dark and dirty. It does not hold up well to day to day use. I hope the Apple store will take it back.

    Awful durability

    • Written by from Worthington

    Purchased this case for my new 5s which is now less thank 3 weeks old. Within a week the case started showing signs of wear. By week 3 the case is beginning to break down because I've removed the phone once. The bumper case for my 4s lasted over a year before I considered replacing it and it was 1/2 the price of this one. Not worth the money, severely disappointed in Apple over this.

    Low lip, ages quickly, stain magnet

    • Written by from New York

    I got the iPhone 5s when it first came out and got this case for it due to the lack of alternatives at the time. The lip is relatively low so it doesn't provide much screen protection and the leather ages very very quickly and stains very easily. That doesn't seem terribly indicative of high quality anything. Though I appreciate that leather products wear over time, this seems like a flaw in the treating process.

    No good

    • Written by from Miami

    I purchased the red case for 5S, and when I got it 2 days ago, I thought it was really nice, but after just 2 days or carrying it in my jean's pocket , it is already turning worn and losing its color, getting all dark at the edges.., pretty expensive for a poor quality product.. not recommended if you carry your phone in your pocket

    Not SO Excellent

    • Written by from Stillwater

    "Premium leather feels soft and buttery and offers excellent protection" Apple Website

    I have to agree that the premium leather looks great and feels great, but as for excellent protection that part is not true. The case "DID NOT" provide excellent protection when my phone fell 23 inches off a table onto concrete and broke the front glass. I could see waist high breaking but really 23inches off of my small side table. I was shocked as the Lack of Protection this case provided.
    Extremely disappointed in this Apple Product.

    Looks great when you buy it. It looks Vile after a few weeks.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I bought a beautiful red case for my iphone 5s. It is beautifully made and fits perfectly. The problem is that no one at Apple actually tested this case before it was sold. At least that is what it looks like since no rational person would have approved this case if they actually tried it first.

    I am only referring only to red case since that is all i have. After a few weeks it turns black. The material embeds dirt, grime, germs, disease, and the like, through normal use. Washing and cleaning does little to rectify the situation. After about a few months the phone case looks vile. It is actually embarrassing when you have to pass your phone on to someone to use, but they only use it after they put on rubber gloves.

    I believe apple should do a recall on this case and terminate the person who approved it "ready for sale."

    Buy it and try it yourself. You will end up wasting 40 bucks, or whatever it cost, since you will end up replacing it very frequently.

    Lovely design. Poor choice of materials. Fatal lack of pretesting.

    I am a huge Apple fan but this product was the worst purchase I have made in ages. I bought the red case and literally within a week it started to turn dark red and then black. I have had it less than a month and it looks so bad that I am now having to go out and buy a new one. Also - due to the design you cannot put it into the docking station without taking the case off which given that it is so difficult to get on and off quickly becomes a nightmare. Save your money people.

    Apple 5S. Bad quality case

    • Written by from Bronx

    I am super disappointed of this case. So much much money and after a few days the case looks like it is several years old. It is like a sponge it pick up dirt and looks very old and worn out . I would like my money back. Apple is know for good quality products but this one gets the worst rating.

    Worst Case Ever

    • Written by from Pennsauken

    I like to support the product red devices from apple, so getting this case was a no brainer. However, within in a week, the case looked like I had rubbed the corners and edges on coal. Not only does is look disgusting, but it scratches rather easily. Finally, when I thought it could not let me down any more, it failed to protect my phone from a three feet drop. Seems like Apple skimped on testing these cases.

    Red Case ... Too Dirty

    • Written by from Bethesda

    I was very excited for this case, and I have used it for a few weeks. At first, I was very happy with the case, but now case looks horrible. After typical usage, it turns black on all edges. It cannot be cleaned as I have tried a few different methods.

    Returned after one week!

    • Written by from Nederland

    I loved the look of this case before they even released it with the iPhone 5s. I got my space gray 5s the day is came out at Verizon, and just as I was about to leave the store, a UPS shipment came with the cases. The lady who helped me checkout came rushing to me with the cases because I had mentioned thats what I was going to order after she tried to sell me every case in the store! So, you could say I was very excited to get the red case!!

    The case WAS so nice and contrasted very well with the black screen, BUT the next freakin day I started to notice the edges on the back of the case where I grasp the phone were starting to turn brownish black. The color change proceeded very quickly the next few days (especially putting it in my jean pockets) until I couldn't stand it anymore and had to remove the case (which was a very hard process by the way) and return it. This was very upsetting because the red case was my favorite case next to the Apple bumpers I had for my 4s. I exchanged the red for the black case. The black does not show any signs of wear (unless you look really closely and you can see its a worn down) after about two months of use, but the black is really plain compared to the red.

    I wish Apple would correct this problem. I have never been disappointed in an Apple product before until now.

    So save your $40 and buy something else!!!!!

    Looks & feel great but not for long

    • Written by from Rio de Janeiro

    Its made of a great leather and it's interior is very soft, doing a great job absorbing impact and keeping the iPhone safe.
    At first the case looks great and gorgeous, and after three years buying all kinds of cases I can definitely say this one is the best looking and with the best grip ever.

    Unfortunately the leather gets damage really easily just from being in your pants pocket and for that it gets really dark, like its dirty. After just three days of use mine looked horrible. It's been a month now and I'm looking forward to throw it away and never buying Apple Cases again.

    Not impressed with this case at all

    • Written by from BALLWIN

    I've owned every version of the iphone since the original was released. I've owned probably 20 different cases over the years. This is one of the worst cases I've owned thus far. The leather gets really nasty in a very short time. I've only had the case for less then a month, and it's disgusting. I work in an office, so the phone is either sitting next to me at my desk, or it's in my pocket. No reason for it to look the way it does already. The felt like lining on the inside keeps shedding all over the screen and into all the little crevices on the iphone. I'm very very displeased with this product, considering the price, and the fact that it's an "Apple" case.
