    Simplistic yet totally awsome

    • Written by from Jonesborough

    I love this case, it feels awesome I never want to put my phone down I love the feel so much. This case is so simple, yet it feels like it will offer good protection against dropping or other normal usage mishaps. I like this case so much that I'm thinking about getting another one in red. Right now I have the black on black and it looks great, can even see the sliver band around the outer edge of the phone.

    Amazingly Elegant

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    I HATE cases, however this one I absolutely love. No bulkiness, no slippery texture. It looks and feels elegant and compliments the iPhone 5s so well. It will age over time to bring greater "personality" to the phone. It is now apart of my phone.

    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.

    Great Fit, Poor Material Choice

    • Written by from Washington

    The case fits the phone like a glove, as we expect from Apple's design team. The issue is that the red leather also picks up the oil from your hands and the dye from your clothing making it look terrible. I haven't explored another color, but I definitely think I'll explore a different case entirely.

    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.

    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 beautiful for such a short time.

    • Written by from SAINT PAUL

    I loved this case. In fact, I still love this case. Great feel, great look, and a reasonable fit.

    But I've had it for a few weeks now, and it's almost ready for retirement. Dirt and skin oils have already built up along the edges, and I'm starting to see it on the general body of the case now too.

    It's really too bad, because I was excited about this case at first, but I now feel like hobo walking around with it.

    Perfect case with a caveat!

    • Written by from Ogden

    I loved this case, but ultimately after 10 days I returned it. The overall form factor is perfect and the footprint is as small as you'll get with a case. It feels very smooth to the touch, yet extremely durable. The front part of the case (on the screen side) has a nice lip which allows you to set the phone with the screen facing downward allowing only the case to come into contact with the surface, keeping the screen just slightly raised. This "feature," if one could call it that, was my favorite thing about the case.

    The only thing I disliked about the case was it got extremely dirty...yes I know that is what a case is supposed to do, however mine got extremely black (I purchased the red one) just after one days use. Also my headphones (shure e4c) didn't fit correctly due to the small cutout and the lightest force would pull them out.

    One last quibble for me was the price. If the price was $10 cheaper I would have kept it. However I opted to return it and purchase Twelve South's Bookbook for $20 more, giving me more protection and an added wallet function.

    Overall a wonderful case made by Apple, but it was too pricey and the durability was a concern for me. I would recommend it in a heart-beat however!

    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...

    Faux Luxury

    • Written by from Parker

    Not worth the $40 price tag. Pre-ordered this with the 5S. It bows out slightly on either side for a less than perfect fit. Feels about as sturdy as cardboard. Save yourself a couple bucks as well as your peace of mind and buy a Speck case.

    Wonderful Feel

    The case fits the iPhone perfectly and feels great in your hand. The leather is smooth and not prone to staining.

    Worth it

    • Written by from Perris

    Best case I've had. Feels great in the hand and is very good looking. Worth the price. Switched from a lifeproof case and was very doubtful on buying this but the case does its job. I am very happy with it!

    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.

    Not good!

    • Written by from Chicago

    It looks good, feels good too when it's new. I've had it a week, it's stained, the "leather" is worn off in one spot in the middle of the case. It's filthy from handling it. It's simply overpriced junk. Get a rubberized one, save your money.

    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.

    Turning black along edges

    • Written by from Summerville

    I love the feel of this case but I've carried my new iPhone 5s for less than 3 days and the case is already turning black along the edges of the leather. Now that's of concern in that it has happened so quickly. I work in healthcare so I keep my hands very clean, washing them through the day so... it is not that I am a dirty person. Anyway I would not buy this case.

    Love the Look and Feel

    • Written by from Riverwoods

    Great color. Feels great. Love the fact the color changes and the finish can get a little weathered. It's a great feature! Makes the red look even better. Makes the case mine. Feels like a good pair of jeans.
