    Great looking case for a few days

    • Written by from Tampa

    I had high hopes for this case. The case looks great on the white iPhone. You cannot use the 30 pin adapter with the case on. Not a deal breaker. After two weeks of use, the case looks worn and dirty. New jeans will bleed onto the case. I expected better quality in a $40 case. I ended up returning the case.

    Great case design from apple

    • Written by from ATLANTA

    I love the size, weight and design of this case. It feels great in your hand and less bulky than most other iPhone 5 cases. I wish Apple would make some additional colors available. Other than the black case the other color options are very light or pastel . I would like to see some darker colors. I phones are used in many business settings and men over 30.

    Awesome Case, Red, Hot! classy, Good Quality.

    • Written by from MIAMI

    I dont know why all neg reviews, so far so good. I have a one day new 5S, I am nuts about any nicks etc. took it to have a Zagg shield put on before taking out of box and then got the case. The Lifeproof is the best if you dont want your phone ever scratched. but they are not out yet.. The Tech 21 mesh is great protection with a good feel... but i was afraid some dust would get in and scratch finish. So I picked up the Red Leather Case from Apple.
    I read all reviews and was sure it would be form fit to keep out debri. with moderate protection.

    Lets see, I will have to baby it. but it looks and feels like the phone should.

    The best iphone case! :)

    • Written by from Portland

    I love this case... It looks and feel amazing but.... It is leather and like all leather it absorbs die (from my black leather wallet ) so it has started to look dingy so maybe not the best case for a semi dirty environment. :)

    Quality Leather, Snug Secure Case!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I like just a basic case to protect the phone exterior when it accidentally slips out of my pocket. The leather is of good quality and feels great when holding the phone. The snug fitting case protects the exterior well, and has enough of an edge to keep the front glass from hitting when it slips out of my pocket. I like the red color as well, it complements the space gray of the phone exterior. Good job Apple!

    Excellent Case

    • Written by from Lincoln

    A well made, well-fit case. The leather feels very nice in the hand, and gives you a nice aroma as you are talking on the phone.

    My biggest question before purchase was whether or not there was enough of a lip protruding above the face of the phone to afford some protection if you set the phone down face-first. Yes, there is about 1mm worth of overhang, and everything comes up roses.

    Buy this case, you won't regret it.

    Top notch case - highly recommended

    • Written by from Edmonton

    This case is phenomenal.

    The fit and finish is truly that of an Apple product. The soft leather feel is very comfortable to hold and so far seems to be quite durable. I usually kept my iPhone case-less because I liked the high quality feel of its build quality but this case does a great job of maintaining that feeling.

    The price is a little expensive but I assure you it is well worth it.

    Gets Dirty to Easily!

    • Written by from Lewisville

    I loved this case in the beginning, the bright red looked great with my gold iphone but, soon after having the case on, the sides began to get discolored and black. This case is VERY HARD to keep clean. The color does fade a little with wear also. I like the sleek feel it puts on my phone but I definitely would not recommend the red or any lighter color case to anyone!

    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!

    Red Dye wears off and looks dirty...Go with Black.

    • Written by from Columbia

    We have the Black and the Red. The Red looks as if it is dirty and gets that way fast. I tried to clean it with leather cleaner and determined it is not dirt that makes it look that way. It is the Red dye rubbing off and the base is black. Go with the Black...it never looks dirty and has held up quite well.

    Good quality construction, but poor resistance to staining.

    The red leather looked 12 months old within one day of use. Very disappointing.

    Apple Iphone 5s leather case

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    Nice case in general but in order to charge with an adapter (lighting to 30 pin) you'll have to remove the case. You'll have the same problem with any type of docking station. Major pain and a huge oversight on the part of apple.

    Great looking case...when new.

    • Written by from Santa Ana

    Bought this case really liking the slimness and overall look. The red really pops against my Space Gray phone. However, after owning the case for roughly 2 months, I am pretty unhappy with the way it's wearing. The edges of the case are pure black due to dirt and grime from every day phone handling. I understand that leather does wear, but I was hoping for more of an aged patina look rather than just plain black dirt. If you're going to buy a case like this, buy a dark color.

    Reasonable case

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    The case is really nice in the hand, especially when you first purchase it. I first purchased the blue case. It's a very nice color and i enjoy it allot. I know that lots of people say that the case can get extremely dirty very easily. With a little dab of water and then wiping it with a cloth can clear some of the dirt on the back. But from what I have right now the case protects, it looks luxurious, and it feels very nice too. The only downside to it is that it CAN get dirty very easily depending on the condition you put it through. The Lock button is also a bit harder to push down with this case too. Everything else is perfectly fine, but it'd probably be more convenient if Apple didn't list this for $40.

    Great, but hard to remove

    • Written by from Seattle

    This case looks great with my Space Grey 5s. The only issue that I have is that it is extremely hard to remove. I have a hard time removing the phone case because it is packed so tightly. Also, I wouldn't have thought a case as simple as this would be $40.

    On the bright side, this case looks amazing, and feels great in hand.

    Good case, but does not last

    • Written by from Miami Beach

    I have not been using any cases before because I could not find the one I would not increase the size of the phone so much. The case fit is precise, very snug. The phone feels so good with the case on. It is not bulky at all. I personally do not feel it becoming unconfortably bigger. The case gives extra grip and a solid feeling of the phone being protected from every side. The bottom openings are precisely cut - looks great. The case does not smell at all, not even like a good leather would. Button feel nice, but you need to press them a bit stronger. I owned a black and a brown one. Black look great on white and gold due to contrast, while to my mind it is not as good on black. The brown looks awsome on black. Gives a good feeling of premiumness - like an expensive car. My only concern is that the brown case god dirty and lost it look in a week. Than the color layer started to wear off revealing the much darker brown layer exposed. It looks totally trashy now. I am so disappointed. The case is only 3 weeks old. I am a very careful user, but it just does not last. Though it says leather, it does not feel like a real leather. It totally lost its look, however, not protective qualities. One more thing - brown iphone case and brown ipad case are not the same color, texture and feel at all. I bought two at once to go together and was so surprised to see that the color and texture are not at all the same. If I were to buy again I would only get the black case, after several month it looks just as new. Apple please do something with the color layer on the phone case and use real leather as you say.

    Lovely, yet.... troublesome.

    • Written by from Rowland Heights

    The touch and feel of the iPhone 5s leather case is absolutely fantastic and unique. The soft texture and the beautiful color compliments the iPhone 5s wonderfully; however, there are some downers to this phone case.
    I've had my iPhone 5s and leather case for less than a month now; however, it is starting to look, well... ugly. I don't mind the dark stains from my jeans too much; however, my phone did manage to slip from my hands and smack down on the cement... Not a pretty sight for the phone case. My iPhone 5s case is no longer just darkening, it's also partially torn. Boo.

    Fantastic case with one flaw

    • Written by from Calgary

    I love the way this case looks and fits my new iPhone. The only drawback is the amount of force you need to use to depress the top button. You don't really realize how often you use the top button until you have to give your phone a good solid hand cramp to get the screen to go dark. It looks awesome, though.

    Poor design- don't spend the money

    • Written by from Laverock

    Apple certainly doesn't put any real design effort into accessories. This case looks OK but provides little protection. To push buttons you have to mash on the leather case and it is difficult to adjust volume or turn the phone on or off. The cut out for the charging cord is too small to accommodate the adapter for an old 30 pin power cord.
    And you get all this for about forty bucks that could be much better spent elsewhere.
