    Red case

    • Written by from Kanata

    This iPhone case looks and feels great it is 2 weeks old and it is already black! It attracts dirt like a magnet. It is the first apple product I am really disappointed in. Only buy the black case if you like sticking your phone in your back pocket! Or in your purse!

    I feel like I've been robbed.

    • Written by from Atlanta

    The red leather is beautiful and the fit and finish are superb. HOWEVER the color only last for literal days. I've had this case for less than a month and the color has changed from bright red to dark red to black. I look dirty just carrying it. Save your money and buy another case...or at least the black. Also any small drop will result in the leather tearing on the edge of impact.

    Worse case out there

    • Written by from Brea

    I was so excited to get this case and at first it was the best case I got. I got the red one for my white phone and after 2 weeks the leather it's a dark read and the sides of the case are black all from just normal use! Very disappointed in apple with this one!

    Buy, but don't use.

    • Written by from Toronto

    This case is beautiful.... when you just get it.
    After two weeks only, the red case just became black, especially on the corner. The back is starting to be black as well.

    The case protects the iphone and is nice, but should I get a case to protect my 45$ leather case ?

    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.

    Gets old and dirty very quick

    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!

    After two days of use my once gorgeous red case is now BLACK! For the price I would expect a little more durability. It makes my gorgeous phone look cheap and dirty! So disappointed.

    Loses Color FAST

    • Written by from Park City

    I got this product thinking it would be the best for my iPhone 5s. I have gotten previous cases from Apple for my iPad and was greatly impressed. However, unlike the smart cases, this was a huge disappointment. I spent 50$ including shipping to get this and after a week of use, people asked me why my case was dirty. It was a huge embarrassment to the beauty of my iPhone 5s.

    Great Design, Poor Practicality

    • Written by from Kirkville

    I've always loved the RED products, so I was excited to make this my first red purchase ; however, I'm disappointed with how dirty the case has become after normal use over the past three weeks. The red exterior looks dirty, attempts to clean have proved futile. Swing and a miss here Apple.

    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.

    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.

    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

    So I went ahead and bought it expecting a nice completing case with apple quality. I understand it's leather, and leather ages, but I bought this last Friday, and am already over it
    As you already figured, this is not one of the most affordable cases on the market, matter of fact, you can buy 2 other name brand cases for same price, or 40 1 dollar cases from china.
    The reason I am disappointed is the material, instead of feeling, and acting like leather, it's more like rubber, it feels like rubber, and acts like an eraser, it's already looking dirty, and it was exposed to a normal day, it looks like I used it to erase my homework. I just expected a better material to compliment my 5s. I gave up the beautiful look of my gold phone for this! As soon as I finish writing this review, I will be putting it back in my previous clear case. Anyways that's my view of it, I really wish I could get my money back...

    The red leather case was wonderful the first day, the next day was discolored at the edges.

    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.

    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.

    Dock is great but it does not fit into iPhone 5s dock

    • Written by from PLEASANTON

    Unbelievable. The case is NOT incompatible with the dock. It simply does not fit. If you want to use the beautiful Apple dock, you have to remove the case before inserting the iPhone 5s. A little conversation between the case and dock designers would really be helpful. Don't you think Sir Ive? I opted for returning the dock.

    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.
