    Great Case Great Feel But Shows Dirt

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I have the red case for my 5S and have had it on since the day i got my phone its a great case it feels great in the hand its just that it holds and shows anything it touches very easy no matter where you put it its impossible to keep clean and some stuff is harder to get off then others. If you want one to last without having to put up with it being dirty go with the black one.

    Great Case for iPhone (5 or 5S)

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great case for the iPhone 5 or 5S. The cause that the money goes for is worth buying in it self.
    With that being said, the Red stands out and looks great for a while, if you have oily hands or use a lot of lotion I would recommend the black
    Leather case, the lighter Colors show wear on the edges faster and can NOT be cleaned so keep that in mind.
    As an overall review this case is well made and feels good ergonomically. I hope this helps everyone. :-)

    Reasonable case

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    The case is really nice in the hand, especially when you first purchase it. I first purchased the blue case. It's a very nice color and i enjoy it allot. I know that lots of people say that the case can get extremely dirty very easily. With a little dab of water and then wiping it with a cloth can clear some of the dirt on the back. But from what I have right now the case protects, it looks luxurious, and it feels very nice too. The only downside to it is that it CAN get dirty very easily depending on the condition you put it through. The Lock button is also a bit harder to push down with this case too. Everything else is perfectly fine, but it'd probably be more convenient if Apple didn't list this for $40.

    Good case, but does not last

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    I have not been using any cases before because I could not find the one I would not increase the size of the phone so much. The case fit is precise, very snug. The phone feels so good with the case on. It is not bulky at all. I personally do not feel it becoming unconfortably bigger. The case gives extra grip and a solid feeling of the phone being protected from every side. The bottom openings are precisely cut - looks great. The case does not smell at all, not even like a good leather would. Button feel nice, but you need to press them a bit stronger. I owned a black and a brown one. Black look great on white and gold due to contrast, while to my mind it is not as good on black. The brown looks awsome on black. Gives a good feeling of premiumness - like an expensive car. My only concern is that the brown case god dirty and lost it look in a week. Than the color layer started to wear off revealing the much darker brown layer exposed. It looks totally trashy now. I am so disappointed. The case is only 3 weeks old. I am a very careful user, but it just does not last. Though it says leather, it does not feel like a real leather. It totally lost its look, however, not protective qualities. One more thing - brown iphone case and brown ipad case are not the same color, texture and feel at all. I bought two at once to go together and was so surprised to see that the color and texture are not at all the same. If I were to buy again I would only get the black case, after several month it looks just as new. Apple please do something with the color layer on the phone case and use real leather as you say.

    Hit and miss, really...

    • Written by from Toronto

    Before I begin, let me say that I have had experiences with three of these cases (Yellow, Red and Beige).

    In no ways am I being an apologist for Apple, but I really believe that the longevity of this product is case by case (no pun intended). My first case developed a crack within a week, and I returned it. My red case (despite minor discolouration) has been an absolute tank. It's still going strong after almost 4 months. My beige one is only used for special occasions.

    Like with all leather products, scuffs and discolouration will occur. The wear and tear comes with any item you buy.

    By no means is it perfect, but it's one of the best cases offered to compliment the most beautiful phone on the market.

    Lovely, yet.... troublesome.

    • Written by from Rowland Heights

    The touch and feel of the iPhone 5s leather case is absolutely fantastic and unique. The soft texture and the beautiful color compliments the iPhone 5s wonderfully; however, there are some downers to this phone case.
    I've had my iPhone 5s and leather case for less than a month now; however, it is starting to look, well... ugly. I don't mind the dark stains from my jeans too much; however, my phone did manage to slip from my hands and smack down on the cement... Not a pretty sight for the phone case. My iPhone 5s case is no longer just darkening, it's also partially torn. Boo.

    Fantastic case with one flaw

    • Written by from Calgary

    I love the way this case looks and fits my new iPhone. The only drawback is the amount of force you need to use to depress the top button. You don't really realize how often you use the top button until you have to give your phone a good solid hand cramp to get the screen to go dark. It looks awesome, though.

    Case

    • Written by from Exeter

    This case is a must buy for anyone with the iPhone 5 or 5s but the only thing is if you get any cleaning materials on it by accident it will pull the dye right out of the leather

    iPhone Case

    • Written by from Bethel

    The Apple iPhone case is really something. It feels very soft on your hands. Its fits like a glove on your brand new iPhone. There are some things I feel I should point out. This case (I have the red one) will easily get stained. This means that if you love blue jeans and love placing your nice iPhone in your pocket, odds are its gonna get stained. In my personal opinion, I learned to like the blue stains on it. Some of you might not like that. So, far so good. However, one star was lost. The reason for that is, if you one a pair of bose headphones the way I do, the plug is not going to fit through the headphone jack hole. That little headphone jack hole is only wide enough for the apple headphone jack. Some of you might not care for that as most of you will use the ear pods provided with the purchase of your new iPhone. Just keep in mind that if you do use this case, kiss goodbye to the ideas of other headphones that are not Apple.

    Perfect case with a caveat!

    • Written by from Ogden

    I loved this case, but ultimately after 10 days I returned it. The overall form factor is perfect and the footprint is as small as you'll get with a case. It feels very smooth to the touch, yet extremely durable. The front part of the case (on the screen side) has a nice lip which allows you to set the phone with the screen facing downward allowing only the case to come into contact with the surface, keeping the screen just slightly raised. This "feature," if one could call it that, was my favorite thing about the case.

    The only thing I disliked about the case was it got extremely dirty...yes I know that is what a case is supposed to do, however mine got extremely black (I purchased the red one) just after one days use. Also my headphones (shure e4c) didn't fit correctly due to the small cutout and the lightest force would pull them out.

    One last quibble for me was the price. If the price was $10 cheaper I would have kept it. However I opted to return it and purchase Twelve South's Bookbook for $20 more, giving me more protection and an added wallet function.

    Overall a wonderful case made by Apple, but it was too pricey and the durability was a concern for me. I would recommend it in a heart-beat however!

    Great case design from apple

    • Written by from ATLANTA

    I love the size, weight and design of this case. It feels great in your hand and less bulky than most other iPhone 5 cases. I wish Apple would make some additional colors available. Other than the black case the other color options are very light or pastel . I would like to see some darker colors. I phones are used in many business settings and men over 30.

    Great Case But....

    • Written by from Camas

    I was so excited to get this beautiful and vibrant case. It came in the mail, I put it on my iPhone and it looked great. The red I ordered was vibrant and contrasted wonderfully with my black iPhone. The case feels great in your hand as well. However, there are two complaints I have with this case. First of all, it doesn't work with the 30-pin adapter. Not a big deal, I kind of expected that anyway. The bigger deal is the fade of the vibrancy of the leather. I realize the packaging says fades with normal use, but I didn't think it would fade this much. I keep it in my black jean pocket all day which I believe is the culprit. The red has hints of black in it know. Because I knew this going in, I won't knock the case down but just be warned going into the purchase. Otherwise, a great case for your iPhone!

    GREAT BUT.....

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I have the iPhone 5S space grey and the (RED) case. I love how the case looks from the front there is a "little lip" of red showing, it looks great against the black screen. If you change your wallpaper to the red one it looks even more amazing. This case also feel wonderful in the hand and a pleasure to hold however, the only down fall to this case in my opinion is the fact that it picks up and shows dirt very easy.

    Great Minimal Design

    • Written by from North Hollywood

    At first i was skeptical in buying this case because of the de-colorization issues I've read in some reviews. However, now that i have the case (black) it's actually very minimal and pairs really well with the 5s. It shows somewhat of a peak of the space grey color in the front since the case doesn't fully cover over the bezel like some cases. The case does have a tiny lay on the table design. Also this case is virtually weightless, it's as if it doesn't even have a case on. My only problem with this case is that the cut of for the headphone jack is a tad small. Overall this is a great buy and great design.

    beautiful to touch and behold, a little too expensive

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    I bought this case today to go with my space gray iPhone 5S. This is the first time I've ever used a case with my iPhone (and that's going back all the way to the original) The feel of the case is really nice.

    I think the price is too high by about $10.

    But, it's a pleasure to hold, and looks really great (I especially like how it looks from the front, where you get a little edge of color, similar to the iPhone 5C).

    Next time, I hope Apple releases a special (PRODUCT) RED anodized iPhone, similar to the iPod Touch. This is the next best thing.
