Long-term review of yellow Apple leather case
I bought the yellow case when I got the 5S, along with another case.
I like the leather cases. They fit well, like the Apple logo, it's not too fat of a case, and it's a natural material. In addition, if you spill something on it, if you wipe it down with a damp paper towel, you can get the stain out.
It was a bit tough getting the case off at first. I start out at the lower corner and try to get enough of the case out where there is space in the cut-out for the charger to wedge a q-tip in there. Then I push it out. Overtime, the leather will loosen up to the point where I can now take it off fairly easily- just loosen both bottom corners and it will come off. However it's not so loose that the case no longer snuggly fits the phone.
I knew buying this the color would change. But now it is the color of a ripe banana or snot, depending on the lighting and your point of view.
Here it is new:
Here it is after a few months of use. It's been cleaned using a damp paper towel once and a leather conditioner/cleaner once. Used it right out of the box without putting anything on it.
I love the case, I just don't like this color now.
I think blue and beige will do the same thing- end up looking dingy- the lighter colors I don't think will age well.
Red I think could age well.
Brown and Black will age the best since they are dark colors.
Would I buy another Apple leather case? Yes!
But it's down to Red or Brown.
Can't do black- it would be too much black.
The thing is, now I kinda wanna just go without a case. So I might go without a case and go from there.
