    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.

    Case worthy of Apple Logo

    • Written by from Littleton

    I was hesitant about buying this case after reading some reviews that the product felt cheap or that the color fades.

    I bought this case in store two days ago, and I LOVE IT! The design is so sleek and it does not compromise the sleekness of the iPhone 5, which is why we all bought the phone in the first place.

    Red is my favorite color and this case compliments the phone so well. Hugs every corner, cutouts for vibrate/ring switch, and even tiny cutouts for the speakers at the bottom.

    Finally, the leather feel of this is perfect. It feels luxurious in your hand.

    I recommend this product. It is worthy to carry the Apple Logo.

    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.

    Great Leather Case - Worthy of the iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Ponte Vedra Beach

    This is a great case that is quality leather. I liked it so much that I bought 3 cases. It is the first case I've owned that is quality enough for an iPhone. Love the Apple logo on the back. The price is good and for only $10 more than most other cases you get nice leather that feels great in your hand. Because of the quality it will last a lot longer than those other cheap cases. It provides great protection for your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5. Only negative is that it is a little snug and tough to remove. However if you pop off the two bottom corners and then flip it over and pull, it comes off pretty easy. Great job Apple!!!

    Not Worth it

    • Written by from nagpur

    First time you hold one of these cases you will fall in love. Then three days later you will be kicking yourself for buying it.
    The leather has to be some of the cheapest junk produced. It absorbs everything it comes in contact with and looks like rubbish.
    Don't buy this, Go for another one

    Didn't realize 'leather changes' really means 'dirt magnet'

    • Written by from Staten Island

    I am very familiar with leather, and leather that is colored. The case is so nice when you open the package. The leather feels soft and durable and very light and comfortable. Like everyone else I'm unhappy with what it looks like after only 2 weeks. It gets dirt smudges and stains all over and no matter what leather safe technique you use to clean it it continues to look the same. Luckily from afar it just looks like a darker red but on close inspection it's clearly just dirty. The problem is that it's not an even amount of change, theres random smudges and darkening marks in different areas. My boyfriend's blue case looks horribly dirty and outright disgusting after less than two weeks.

    Great at first

    • Written by from GARNER

    I love the function, weight and protection this case offers. This case deserves a low review because it doesn't clean we'll and looks gross after normal wear and tear. I would not recommend this case if you want it to look clean and red. Mine looks brown almost black now.

    This case is slowly breaking my phone.

    • Written by from phoenix

    Love the look and feel even though the color of the case has gotten considerably darker since it was purchased. My main issue with the case is it's causing my phone to slowly break.

    Because the case fits so snug it makes it difficult to take off. Every time I do attempt to take it off (which is often because the lightning adapter was not designed for this case) it puts a lot of pressure on the phone when I pull it out. Now the glue that holds the top glass is starting to give. I can see the glass is slightly raised from the metal edge and it can be pushed back into place with my fingers. It's evident that if I continue to use this case it will break my phone.

    This case is not a solution for protecting your phone if you intend to take the phone out of the case! Apple geniuses you'll be hearing from me soon!

    Read the package!!!

    • Written by from Oakland

    On the back of the box it says this case is made from natural
    Aniline leather the appearance will change over time as you use it
    I brought the red color cause I didn't care if it would tear and wear or discolor that's the part of a leather product and it's dyed leather so it would discolor over time .

    Nice, but prone to dirt and wear

    • Written by from Tuen Mun,

    OK I bought one on 12 OCT from one of the Store in HK.

    After half a month I have the following evaluation:

    It really fits, totally fit with the phone. It feels so grand as it's made from leather.
    The PRODUCT(RED) version of the case makes the phone so sharp.
    It provides some strong protection to the phone. I had a time when I suddenly dropped the phone to the tile in a shopping mall, the shell protected most parts of the phone (however a corner got off the case and hit directly to the tile, leaving a little scratch).

    It gets dirty easily. I use the case together with a little black pouch and edges of the case started to get black in colour after few weeks of usage.
    The problem of wear is serious. I don't really agree that this case is suitable for those who work outdoor. Up to today (30 OCT) I've got five scratches throughout different locations of the case. The case is made of soft leather, which means it's quite easy to get scratch when the shell hit something hard. For example, its first scratch is the result of directly hitting to the shell of my MacBook Pro when I tried to prevent a hard drop to the floor!

    I once considered to return the product to the Store, however:
    First, it's made of leather, which I consider the product is an in-direct sacrifice of an animal, I should respect that. And I've to be responsible for the consequence of the way I use it. So finally I withdraw the idea to return or replace it. However I might consider the idea of buying a second case to accompany the case. A polycarbonate shell looks like a better choice for me.

    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.
