    Default Picked up Red leather case for my Black iPhone 5

    Hi Folks,

    After reading lot of reviews and watching videos on Youtube of leather case, I finally decided to buy a Red color leather case. I knew before buying that it's color will change over a period of time and it is a dirt magnet. It has just been two days I have used this case and I am TOTALLY in love with this beauty. Somehow, I have started loving my 1 year old iPhone 5 more with this case on. Very slim, chick and vibrant color this case has which adds "wow" factor to the overall design. And people who complain about tactile feedback of the lock button or issue with volume rocker, please use it for few days and it will be fine. Somehow, for me it has been good from Day 1.

    This is the case I always wanted but never got. Tried CaseMate, Belkin etc which were good but nothing comes close to this case. I know the fact that this case won't protect you from a heavy fall but for minor bumps, it certainly will. I am one person who keeps my iPhone close to my heart. I clean it every now and same goes for my case too

    I have been very careful with this case and it's going absolutely fine till now. I know I am being judgmental early.. but this is my take so far on this. Even if it gets dirty, I will clean it with wet tissue paper soaked in hot water and will use mild soap

    If anyone of you is confused to buy it or not, go ahead and pick one and you will not regret it. Red case is a stunner with Black/Space Gray iPhone. Let me know how your case has held up so far

    Enjoy!

    I had the red leather case myself. Had to return it due to the common problem it has about getting really dirty. Great case might pick up a black one.

    I loved the case when I had it, too bad within a week I had to return it. It was filthy. Might go for the black one next time. Heard that one doesn't dirty as much or as fast. Great color though.

    I've had my red case for 3 months and it still looks great! Slight aging of the leather, but no "dirty" look at all.

    I think colour choice depends on the individual as far as getting dirty is concerned. The red may be good for a lawyer or office person, but might not be good for a construction worker who has dirty hands all day long

    I agree, i am a office person and I am careful with the case so far. One of my cousin at a party yesterday commented that my iPhone 5 has become a 5c now after red case! :|

    About to basically swap my 32GB white 5 for a 32GB black 5. Was using the tan leather on the white and going to slam it on the black. I just don't know how I feel about using anything other than the brown or black leather.

    Tried the black leather case and it was too plain for my personal style. The brown leather on a black iPhone....perfect! Like most however, the case gets VERY dirty and it seems only the black one will not show as much dirt. However, Apple switched out my first brown leather case for a new one, so I'm going to try a leather conditioner to see if that will help maintain it's look. Will report back.

    If you are OK in losing out on the color of the case, use conditioner. Apple does not suggest to use any conditioner or cleaning solution except wet tissues soaked in luke warm water with mild soap

    *UPDATE*

    It's been two weeks I am using this case and it's going good.. Yes, the case has turned Black on the edges but I like the worn out look. I would recommend this case to everyone specially to those who have Black iPhone 5 or space grey 5s

    Glad to hear it's working out for you.. Some people don't understand the class of leather they have and how leather truly handles everyday life...... We are all so used to plastic and rubber to be impressed by it's true beauty.

    I use a leather cleaner on a regular basis and it's developing a nice patina.

    Not to hijack the thread but...

    Does anyone have any tips on how to remove this case? My sister-in-law just gave me a black one because she didn't like it. I do like it. However I found that my silent switch appears to now be rather mangled I assume from the two times I removed the case while messing around. It is very difficult to get off.

    With the phone upside down...I hold it against my body and pull the corners off simultaneously. After the first few times it becomes very easy.

    It's a pretty tough case to pull it out.. but as mentioned by mzengr.. it will come off.. you just need to be a bit hard while pulling it off

    I have taken it off a couple of times for various reasons, and I always start by pushing out through the camera hole and then pulling the other corner on the top of the phone back. It always has worked, but I am going to try the upside down method...sounds easier than having to deal with the lock button constantly wanting to turn the phone off!

    If you take it off multiple times, then I am afraid you will lose the "glove" fit of the case..
