    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.

    Elegantly simple

    • Written by from Newnan

    While I could have upgraded my iPhone 5 contract to get the 5S, this simple and slim cover is so purely elegant that I decided to go for a cosmetic upgrade for the time being. It is the least obtrusive case I've ever put on my phone, hampering none of the functions or ease of use. The (PRODUCT) RED version has rich beautiful color and a fit that would make a Savile Row tailor perfectly green with envy.

    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!

    Great Minimal Design

    • Written by from North Hollywood

    At first i was skeptical in buying this case because of the de-colorization issues I've read in some reviews. However, now that i have the case (black) it's actually very minimal and pairs really well with the 5s. It shows somewhat of a peak of the space grey color in the front since the case doesn't fully cover over the bezel like some cases. The case does have a tiny lay on the table design. Also this case is virtually weightless, it's as if it doesn't even have a case on. My only problem with this case is that the cut of for the headphone jack is a tad small. Overall this is a great buy and great design.

    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.

    Buttons work OK, will probably get better

    • Written by from ANACORTES

    I've read some big-time reviewers (John Gruber, for example) who dismiss this case because it makes the buttons stiffer. There's some truth to this, at first anyway. But hey, it's leather, it will break in beautifully, like a pair of good shoes. Even brand new, it works well enough, but it will get better. This case just shouts Jony Ive. I agree with most reviews here: fits perfectly, feels great.

    Unbelievable quality! Great Case!

    • Written by from Ewing

    Picked up my iPhone 5s on release day was a little hesitant to buy the case due to the price. But once I put it on and felt it on the phone it fit great, looked sharp and I have never been more happy with a phone case. Great buy. A little pricey, but you wont be disappointed.

    VERY happy so far...

    • Written by from Portland

    I have an iPhone 5 that is about a year old. Originally, I purchased a "bumper" from a non-Apple supplier that I found on Amazon. The bumper worked well enough, and definitely showed off my new iPhone, and protected it during falls, but it wasn't luxurious or particularly well made. I decided that I'd buy a new case when iOS 7 debuted, because it would help me feel like I got a new phone.

    Anyway, this case is gorgeous. I expect that it will "wear" well. It is always best to start with natural products, and I think that leather looks good even when it "wears". The cutouts are well designed and don't create any conflicts with my other equipment.

    Yes... the phone does fit in the case VERY snugly, but this is not a bad thing to me. It does take some extra effort to remove the phone once it has been put in, but seriously, how often will you need to do this? Besides, I'd rather have the security of knowing that the case provides a tight fit if I ever drop it.

    No regrets here... and I'm glad that Apple is offering this case. It is one of the few cases worthy of an iPhone. It feels so luxurious in my hand that $39 seems like a bargain! Lol!

    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.
