    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!

    Does not last

    • Written by from knox

    I would not recommend the red case. Within days it's turning black. Does not hold up well for the money.

    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.

    Nice case but shows wear after a day. Not worth $40, needs to be less money for what you get.

    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.

    Amazing quality case!

    • Written by from Macomb

    First off about the dirtiness issue, Apple tells you on the back of the box that it will change color over time. Don't act all alarmed because you don't wash your hands and get your case all dirty.

    Second: Wow I have never liked a case more then this. I got the Red for my white 5 and it looks amazing with it. The only thing that got me off guard was the power button. It isn't as tactile as some case buttons are but not a big deal for me, I actually like it better that way. I hope Apple keeps making great cases for the future iPhones!

    Beautifully designed- but dirt magnet

    • Written by from Cypress

    Really nice design when it is new out of the box. But use it for 3-4 days in a "normal" way, and it starts to get dirty and darker around the edges.. I understand the concept of "graceful aging" and when I purchased this, I expected it to start getting dirty eventually... but not that quickly!

    As a user, I have always been quite respectful to my phone and its covers... I don't hold them with oily fingers while eating pizza or burger :).. But it doesn't matter- this cover is extremely susceptible to dirt. I suspect the other colors are the same, especially the off-white. I think the only cover that makes sense for normal daily use without worry, is the black one.

    TL;DR Stay away!

    • Written by from Midland

    The case looks and feels wonderful for the first day or two you have it. The choice of leather used is one that is extremely fragile and is highly unsuited for its purpose. I had previously heard about some of the issues with the case so I took my time and used a variety of leather products to protect it to no avail.

    You are better off looking for another case, do not waste your money. Until the type of leather used for the case is changed to one that is more durable after a month or two you'll be looking to replace it. Not because its stained or lost its color but because it physically is tearing and falling apart from the friction of keeping it in a side pocket. I cannot reccomend the case nor will I be purchasing a replacement.

    Nice case, bad quality

    • Written by from De Pere

    I bought the iPhone 5S case (RED) because I wanted to support the cause and also because it looked and fits perfectly.

    I had it for just a few days and its a;ready dirty and looking wear out, try to clean with a wet rag and the color starts to appear on the rag and it gets worst.

    Apple should have thought on the day to day use and how would this affect this cases. Unfortunately I will not use it too long cause e it looks bad.

    • Written by from Seri kembangan

    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!
    Get the black case..

    This (Red) is a different shade of Red

    • Written by from Charlotte

    Love the case, but it is not as RED as my other Apple (Red) products. The (Red) iPod Nano and the (Red) iPad smartcover are truly RED. But the (Red) case for the iPhone 5S is about 2 shades closer to (Orange).

    Disappointed in the design

    • Written by from Princeton

    Hard to imagine I am saying this about an apple product, but these leather cases are poorly designed:

    1. Poor Function: The opening for the headphones is too small, so it is hard to get your headphones to get a good connection. At first we thought something was wrong with the headphones, but it is actually the case. We had to take the case off everytime we wanted to use teh headphones.

    2. Poor materials: The leather case attracts dirt like crazy. We expected the leather to wear, as all leather does, but within a week the case just looked gross.

    3. Poor durability: After 5 weeks the case cracked in two places. I can't believe this cost $39. Asking for a refund.

    Not for everyone

    • Written by from San Diego

    I purchased this case knowing that it will get dirty quick based on reviews but overall I except it cause its light but still protects fairly well. Don't understand why so many are giving negative feedbacks? Yes its $40 and it will get dirty in a day so what this is just a phone and case that will be replaced in a year or two and you will really not care or look back once they get a new phone. Enjoy it people would you rather have a dirty and damage Apple case or a dirty damaged iPhone that dent have a case?

    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 ?

    Not a very good value.

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    I figured I was paying $40 for a good quality product. Overall I love the look. When it was new. In less that a week of normal use it has been getting dirty around the edges. Not too satisfied.

    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

    I'm torn

    • Written by from Tucson

    Generally, this is a fantastic case. It's slim, light, good texture, nice leather, looks great. But there's a problem: The shiny plastic border around the hole screws up the picture quality when using flash in dark situations. Since this is one of the primary upgrades of this phone, it's a big disappointment that this case ruins it. The flash still works fine when there's a fair amount of ambient lighting, but in poorly lit situations, it causes major issues.

    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.
