    The perfect case!

    • Written by from Burlington

    This case blows every other case in the dust. It feels so nice, and is slim. Fits perfectly on my space grey iphone 5s. Good job apple. Well worth my $40

    Looks awful after 2 days of use

    • Written by from Plantation

    Don't even think about it. It's color fades off very quickly, I bought this and had to return it after 3 days of use, it looked like it had 5 years of use.

    You will be regretting how a $40 case makes your new phone looks so ugly.

    Quality is horrible

    • Written by from New Iberia

    While the colors of the iPhone 5s cases are very eye catching, the cases are made very poorly. I brought a case from the apple store Oct. 5, 2013, and the very next day the leather feels like it was been worn out and used up very quickly. I only recommend this product if your looking for a case that is very slim, otherwise it won't last long. For the price of the case, you will be very disappointed of the life of the leather.

    Great Case But....

    • Written by from Camas

    I was so excited to get this beautiful and vibrant case. It came in the mail, I put it on my iPhone and it looked great. The red I ordered was vibrant and contrasted wonderfully with my black iPhone. The case feels great in your hand as well. However, there are two complaints I have with this case. First of all, it doesn't work with the 30-pin adapter. Not a big deal, I kind of expected that anyway. The bigger deal is the fade of the vibrancy of the leather. I realize the packaging says fades with normal use, but I didn't think it would fade this much. I keep it in my black jean pocket all day which I believe is the culprit. The red has hints of black in it know. Because I knew this going in, I won't knock the case down but just be warned going into the purchase. Otherwise, a great case for your iPhone!

    Nice looking but...

    • Written by from Tenafly

    This case is very attractive but gets dirty too easily.
    I've had it for two weeks and it is already filthy and the corners are ripping.

    Beautiful, but Dirties Quickly

    • Written by from Berryville

    Pros: Form, fit, function, design, look, feel, structure, and color. Almost everything on this case makes it feel like a completely natural extension of the iPhone.

    Cons: The edges collect dirt and oils from your hands and the bright red turns dingy—rapidly. I'm a fastidious person and tend to wash my hands a lot throughout the day, but even so, after two weeks of daily use, the long corner edges down the back have turned darker than the rest. The soft, suede-like leather just picks-up grime. I'm disappointed only for this reason; otherwise, this case is fantastic. Three stars only because I know I'll have to toss it soon because it will look horrible in a few more weeks.

    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. :)

    Beautiful, slim, protective.

    • Written by from Mount Airy

    This case is a delight to use! I ordered the brown case to go with the Silver 5s and I absolutely love it. It complements the phone by being thin and showing off the metal band around the phone. It is very protective for it to be so thin, and the leather is pretty durable! My only complaint is that it started to discolor faster than I thought it would. I've already had it replaced less than a week of using it. I would expect it to last a little longer with the expensive price tag and even though it's supposed to change over time, but not within the first week... It's still a very nice product though!

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

    Not SO Excellent

    • Written by from Stillwater

    "Premium leather feels soft and buttery and offers excellent protection" Apple Website

    I have to agree that the premium leather looks great and feels great, but as for excellent protection that part is not true. The case "DID NOT" provide excellent protection when my phone fell 23 inches off a table onto concrete and broke the front glass. I could see waist high breaking but really 23inches off of my small side table. I was shocked as the Lack of Protection this case provided.
    Extremely disappointed in this Apple Product.

    Loving the Red case

    • Written by from Lynn

    I love the red case. This is actually the first time i use a case for an iPhone. I really like how it looks from the front and back. Also what I like the most is the feel of the case.

    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.

    Low lip, ages quickly, stain magnet

    • Written by from New York

    I got the iPhone 5s when it first came out and got this case for it due to the lack of alternatives at the time. The lip is relatively low so it doesn't provide much screen protection and the leather ages very very quickly and stains very easily. That doesn't seem terribly indicative of high quality anything. Though I appreciate that leather products wear over time, this seems like a flaw in the treating process.

    Case worthy of Apple Logo

    • Written by from Littleton

    I was hesitant about buying this case after reading some reviews that the product felt cheap or that the color fades.

    I bought this case in store two days ago, and I LOVE IT! The design is so sleek and it does not compromise the sleekness of the iPhone 5, which is why we all bought the phone in the first place.

    Red is my favorite color and this case compliments the phone so well. Hugs every corner, cutouts for vibrate/ring switch, and even tiny cutouts for the speakers at the bottom.

    Finally, the leather feel of this is perfect. It feels luxurious in your hand.

    I recommend this product. It is worthy to carry the Apple Logo.

    The Perfect Minimal Case

    • Written by from Wethersfield

    This case is a great case for people that are not looking to lock their iPhone in a big cocoon. The case covers the back of the phone along with the sides, and the material peeks a bit over the front, so the phone will not touch a flat surface if you place it upside down. The leather material gives it more traction on smooth surfaces. It feels comfortable in the hand and installed easily. It also does not add much bulk to the phone. The red color looks great on the space grey iPhone. If you are looking for a small case that doesn't add bulk and offers cosmetic protection, this is the case for you.

    Dirt magnet

    • Written by from plainview

    i couldn't wait to get this case when i saw it on apple's website. I love the look and feel, however it is a dirt magnet. its been exactly a week and my case looks like it's a year old. i am a neat person and wash my hands regularly...but it doesn't matter with this case. i spoke with an apple rep and i was told to use a damp cloth to clean it, but that made it worse. Now there is black marks on it. $40.00... I'm very disappointed and I'm bringing it back!

    The perfect iPhone 5 case - finally!

    • Written by from Alton

    I've tried them all - Speck, Atmosphere, Elago, bumpers, skins and "slim cases". All of them either didn't fit right, didn't protect enough or added too much bulk. This case fits perfectly, feels great in my hand and really doesn't add any bulk to the phone at all. I feel like it would protect my device from a short fall - especially around the edges. My 4 got a chip on the edge because the case I was using didn't wrap far enough around; this one does. Yes, it is $40, but I no longer feel that I will need to keep auditioning cases until I find the perfect fit, so in the long run it is a good buy for me.

    GREAT BUT.....

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I have the iPhone 5S space grey and the (RED) case. I love how the case looks from the front there is a "little lip" of red showing, it looks great against the black screen. If you change your wallpaper to the red one it looks even more amazing. This case also feel wonderful in the hand and a pleasure to hold however, the only down fall to this case in my opinion is the fact that it picks up and shows dirt very easy.

    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.
