    The Black Leather Cover is very awesome

    • Written by from Chattanooga

    I like the feel of the case it is quite slim and fitting to the 5 or 5S. The case is also tough to remove. I can tell it was made by Apple. Smells like a leather jacket.

    The case I've been waiting for

    • Written by from South Daytona

    Finally Apple created a truly stunning case. The fit and feel are great. Fits my iPhone 5 perfectly. If you're going to use a dock, the only one I've found that works with it is Twelve South's HighRise dock. You won't be disappointed.

    an awesome looking case for about 4-5 days

    • Written by from Stockholm

    Initially the case looks stunning. However, the lifetime of the leather finish is horrid and you feel cheated considering the price tag. If it was a 3rd party cheap thing from a flea market for 3$, it would be a different story. This is marketed as a premium case from Apple themselves. They should feel ashamed to put their logo on this. Avoid this product and spend your money on some other case.

    Beautiful case.

    • Written by from Toledo

    Everything from Apple has a lot of though put into it, so of course it's going to be very high quality and fit in with their own product like magic. Highly recommended for any Apple fanboy, or really anybody that wants a well matching protective case for their iPhone.

    Not safe enough

    • Written by from LONGVIEW

    I bought this case when I purchased my iPhone 5S. It looks really nice from all angles. I especially like the feel of the case in my hand-very smooth. Although, the edges of the case are flushed with the phone so the phone's screen could still easily crack if dropped at the right angle, which is what happened to mine. Luckily, I had a glass screen protector so the phone itself was unharmed. If you're prone to dropping your phone, I wouldn't recommend this product.

    iPhone 5/s Leather Case.

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I think everyone forgets that leather wears to have a certain "used" or "broken in" look similar to how baseball gloves get after years of use. Isn't that what makes leather so nice? I am completely satisfied with the case. Suede inside helps prevent fine scratching to the phone. Great fit and I love the look the leather has after it has been handled and picks up the oils and sweat from your hands. That is the point of leather...as it ages with wear it looks better...If you want a case that will always look pristine, buy a plastic type of case...Common sense!

    it really gets dirty too easily - get black instead

    • Written by from Seattle

    I read the warnings and the reviews talking about how easily this red color picks up dirt/colors from pockets (especially jeans). I was super careful for a few days but got way too worn. Get the black instead.

    Great Case Great Feel But Shows Dirt

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I have the red case for my 5S and have had it on since the day i got my phone its a great case it feels great in the hand its just that it holds and shows anything it touches very easy no matter where you put it its impossible to keep clean and some stuff is harder to get off then others. If you want one to last without having to put up with it being dirty go with the black one.

    (RED) Porous leather gets dirty

    • Written by from Medford

    The package says that the leather product will change appearance over time. What it doesn't say is that it really picks up dirt. Riding transit with this case made the edges even more dirty. I've had this case for four months and tolerated the grime - it basically appears most on the top edge (front face), and along the back edges, where one holds the phone.

    I've read that treating this baby with some leather protector could help, but mine was so far gone - I tried leather cleaner for shoes, but it really just took red dye from the product rather than remove any grime. Since it's so old, I don't have any hope of returning this. So I have decided to go with it instead of against it: I have taken a light coat of black shoe polish then leather conditioner to the entire phone. It actually looks better - the parts that were still brighter red have been muted which makes the dirty edges less noticeable.

    In all other respects I love this case: form factor, feel, function, etc.

    Seems people either love or dislike this product. I recommend with any color, that you find some way of protecting it (research how to protect porous leather)

    Great Case for iPhone (5 or 5S)

    • Written by from Pasadena

    Great case for the iPhone 5 or 5S. The cause that the money goes for is worth buying in it self.
    With that being said, the Red stands out and looks great for a while, if you have oily hands or use a lot of lotion I would recommend the black
    Leather case, the lighter Colors show wear on the edges faster and can NOT be cleaned so keep that in mind.
    As an overall review this case is well made and feels good ergonomically. I hope this helps everyone. :-)

    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.

    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.

    Snug, soft, but oh so dirty.

    • Written by from Crockett

    I knew ahead of time this case would get dirty. I didn't know it would be almost instantly from walking out of the Apple Store when I'd start seeing dark smudges from the inside of my jeans. Still, the case fits nicely, some headphone jacks don't fit, but otherwise a nice case. I recommend the black case instead. Unless you are like me and you don't mind shelling out the $40.

    Good start, but not a lasting item

    • Written by from Montpelier

    I was quite excited to get an apple (red) case for my new Iphone 5s. I picked one up from an apple store, and put it on immediately. The case fits perfectly, making it the best fitting case I've ever had. In addition, the case is extremely comfortable, and I love the feel of the leather body.

    That being said, Im afraid I cannot recommend this case to anyone. Here's why: Durability. Ive owned my case for a month. Already, the bright, beautiful red has turned into a dirt covered maroon. I've tried many cleaners, and nothing will clean it properly. In addition to the looks going to heck, the actual case is deteriorating as well. The occasional (8-10 times total) removal of my phone has caused the case to break by the headphone jack. This in turn prevents the case from gripping the phone effectively, causing it to fall out occasionally.

    Though it seemed great at first, this case was not built to last. I was quite disappointed in apple for such a low quality case.

    NOTE: If you are still willing to risk a short lived case, please please please go with black, all other colors will turn to a muddy dirt covered version of its original form.

    Pretty for a week

    • Written by from Richmond

    I was so happy with this case, and thought my phone was the prettiest things ever...for like a week.

    Now I cringe every time I look at it. So dirty. It makes me think I'm a dirty person and I'm not. I'm very disappointed.

    As far as protection, it was exactly the level of protection I desire from a case.
