    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.

    The Case I've Been Waiting For

    • Written by from Matthews

    I have always wanted a case that was worthy of my iPhone, and, of course, it takes Apple to create the ideal case. Light, snug fit, and a wonderful feel in your hand makes this case the one that is perfect for those who don't want to sacrifice style for protection. No, it won't protect your iPhone from the unfortunate drop in the pool, but it will protect its beautiful finish from those unsightly scratches that appear from everyday use. If you're looking for a case that is worthy to sport Apple logo, look no further.

    Best iPhone 5/5s Case

    • Written by from New York

    I have an iPhone 5 and this is the best case I've had for it.

    The case fits very well compared to other brands and the leather feels nice.

    Great case !!! BUT .....

    • Written by from DEBARY

    I had the red case for 2 days. AWESOME CASE ... until I noticed it started to get discolored very quickly. Already had blue marks from my jean pocket. I know the leather will get worn but don't want to have a red/blue case within a month! Took it back and going to pick up the black version instead.

    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.

    Great idea, bad material

    • Written by from New York

    This would be a great case, slim and enough protection for the iPhone 5S. BUT after a day the corners of the case started already to change color and picking up the blue from my jeans and other fabrics. The leather is unfortunately very thin, so it is also wearing off very quickly.
    If you want this case, get it in black.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    After two days of purchasing the case, the leather got dirty and old. It is too much for its price. Do not get the RED case!

    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.

    Nice design, not thrilled about material

    • Written by from commack

    The case is slim and hard, nice looking. The only down side is the material. I have own this case for 2 weeks, and it looks dirty and dull. I have the adapter for the charge cable and it doesn't fit in the case. Every time I want to use the adapter you have to remove the case, which is not that easy either.

    UTTER WASTE OF MONEY

    • Written by from St Albans

    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.

    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.
