    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.

    Gets Dirty Easily

    • Written by from Del Mar

    Should have some sort of coating. The case will get black around the edges just due to normal handling from in/out of pockets.

    Also the plastic frame the leather is bonded to could have been slimmer. Makes the phone bulkier with case on.

    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.

    Worst Apple Product I have ever bought

    • Written by from Tampa

    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.

    Beautiful Case, Wonderful Feel, But Way To Fragile!!!

    • Written by from Seafood

    I purchased this case 30 days ago when I purchased my iPhone 5s. The case has an amazing look and feel! Even has that fresh leather smell. I give It 2 star because its way to fragile and very expensive for it to be so fragile.

    I went to take the case off my iPhone 5s so I could clean my phone. I was very gentle during the case removal, but that wasn't enough to keep the bottom piece of the case where the lightning connector hole is cut out from snapping. First time I have had a case do this.

    Hoping Apple will exchange the case.

    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.

    Great Case

    • Written by from Tampa

    Not sure why so many people complain about the case getting dirty. Mine is still in excellent condition. Leather is meant to wear down. Just like keeping the screen free of smudges and dirt, the case can stay clean the same way. It feels great and looks great if you take care of it.

    I was really excited when i got it however less than two weeks passed and the case was completely dark. I use the phone for work, take it the office and home. I tried to clean it but it doesn't come off.

    An Excellent Case

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    Let me start this off by saying, I hate leather. I have always disliked the feel, smell, and look of leather. Leather car seats, couches, and other items. Needless to say I was hesitant to purchase this case for my iPhone 5. But am I glad I did! This is probably the best fitting, and nicest looking, case I have covered my iPhone with. There is absolutely no space in between the phone and the case. Fits like a glove. It snaps on super easy, too. One thing I really like about the design of this case is that it protects the screen when the phone is lying face down, but in no way at all interferes with the edges of the screen. I can type, swipe, and drag apps around without my thumb or other fingers even feeling the tiny lip that comes just around the edges. As I mentioned before with the fit, the precision of this case is unmatched by anything else I have used. The hole for the camera, mute switch, headphone jack, and Lightning port are all drilled in exactly the right place. I can easily fit my nail into the mute switch's hole to adjust its position. And I have no trouble plugging in Apple's EarPods or my Skullcandy earbuds. Each individual hole for the main speaker and microphone have been drilled into the case so as not to disrupt the flow of sound. Music plays out of the speaker crystal clear and friends have no trouble hearing me on a voice call or FaceTime Audio. The camera hole is also surrounded in a black plastic ring so the color of the case will not affect the tone or color of your photos. The buttons on the phone are covered by the case. They can be found by feel thanks to the raised sections covering them. I like this because it prevents dust and debris from entering these points. I have only noticed a slight difference in the tactile clicking of each button. But it is still possible to feel the button click. The case itself is quite thin and does not add noticeable bulk or weight to the phone. I especially admire this after dealing with thick and heavy plastic cases. The case is also completely silent as opposed to cheaper plastic cases that creak and have parts that don't line up properly. Unlike other cases, this one has never lost its grip on my iPhone. The inside of this case is lined with microfiber. A very nice to touch to add beauty and help protect the finish of your iPhone 5 or 5s. Over 4 months of use this case has held up very well for being made of leather. There is no visible wear from handling the phone or sliding it in and out of pockets. There are only two downsides to this case (which I was well aware of when I bought it). And that is that it gathered colors from things like jeans pockets and grime on tables. However, it still looks like the color I bought it in (red) and has worn just like any other case I have used. The other downside to the leather material is that if you were to drop it on a rough surface like concrete the case might show more than just a scuff. But that is to be expected with any case made of material like leather. Overall, I am very pleased with this product. Apple did an excellent job crafting this accessory for my iPhone. I believe it is worth the price. It feels great and soft to hold, doesn't add bulk, and shows off the Apple logo wonderfully on the backside. In fact, this is the only case I've ever had that I didn't feel the need to take the phone out of every once in a while to enjoy it. I can enjoy my iPhone in this case.

    It's leather, its supposed to wear!

    • Written by from Stoney Creek

    I have seen that this product has received a lot of negative reviews, probably from people that have never owned a real leather product in their lives. People might think they have but it was probably faux leather or PU leather that will look pristine no matter how long you've owned the product since real leather is rather expensive these days. Leather wears, scuffs, absorbs oil from the skin if handled often and builds character over time. I have purchased this case and absolutely love it. Perfect case for the person that understands the behavior of leather.

    Expensive and doesn't last long!

    • Written by from McKinleyville

    I have the red case and after a few days using it looks awful - dirty and old. I tried cleaning it and it only made it worse. Also I have to take it out of the case sometimes and now the case has bent so the fit doesn't fit in it well. I'm very disappointed spending as much money as I did and it being an apple product I expect the quality standards to be much greater than this. Do not spend your money on this case!

    Very slim but instantly dirty

    • Written by from New York

    The case fits perfectly and the weight addition is imperceptible but the leather becomes almost instantly dingy as soon as you put it in your pocket or hold it. All the edges wear and change color.

    Aesthetics vs Practicality

    • Written by from Courtice

    The case looks beautiful and it fits the phone perfectly. HOWEVER, the feeling lasts only for a few days...a week if you're lucky enough. I bought a red one and it got very dirty right away. I honestly don't think that it is reasonable to spend so much time and effort taking care of a phone case. For the happy customers, maybe you have enough time in your hands to waste on something as silly as that, but I don't. I don't have time to apply coats and coats of products to it and to have to clean it every week. This is ridiculous! I am going to the store today (one week after buying it) to return it and I am going to look for other options. If you only care about aesthetics and you have lots of time in your hands to take care of a case, go ahead and buy it. If you want/need to be more practical, stay away from the Iphone 5s apple leather cases.

    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!

    The case looks brilliant when new, but after a few days of use it started to look dirty. Its design and materials are gorgeous BUT its ruined by how quickly it wares. I expected the leather to ware eventually but not after a few days. The off button on the top of the phone was very stiff too, I thought it would soften but it didn't. It is also a struggle to get the phone out. My advice to buyers is that to stay away from the bright colours and go for black as it doesn't show signs of waring.
