    I went to check them out in person and was not really impressed. They just seemed very underprotective to me.

    I think they are for casual protection... best find something else if you get the occasional case of the dropsies.

    yes the case is really good and snug the shield should still fit with this case.
    Question: I've heard the fit on this case is really tight, like a glove or second skin. I have a rear shield on my iPhone 5s. Will it fit in this case with it on?

    Mine just arrived and it's beautiful. It fits like a glove, and feels protective enough for the occasional bump or light fall. It'll also protect the aluminum from scratches and dings.

    i got the red one with the white silver 5S. It's a good case. Very thin and fits the phone perfectly. Only issue I have is the case gets dirty easily and attracts dust and grim. I've noticed a slight change in colour on the edges of the case.
    Other than that it looks and feels GOOD.
    Would I recommend someone to get it? Hell yeah.

    It should fit with no problem. But if that's the case( excuse the pun) why would you bother to have a rear shield protector if you already have a case?

    While waiting on my 5S, I do have a 5 to test my case that arrived on.

    I'm noticing the sleep button is a bit tougher to smush than most other cases.

    Also the "fits like a glove" bit is absolutely true. This case is somewhat difficult to take off compared to say, a commuter. Seems protective enough, but the leather material won't handle much abrasion and I suspect it will wear a bit over time. A commuter seems far more protective from drops and abrasion, but this case makes up for it in pure style.

    So I have brown on my new gold 5s, which as seen above is beautiful.

    I've put a yellow one on my 5. It's very nice.

    The Apple leather cases for the 5 & 5s make such a difference...

    Normally I don't drop. I treat it like a jewel. Of course the night I got it I launched it right into the damn trash can...

    Anyone think although they are nice enough they are totally overpriced? I don't have one but that's what it looks like to me.

    That's kinda like Apple products in general, no? It's mass-produced but finely crafted stuff that they then charge high prices for.

    Freedom of commerce -- don't have to deal with them if the price is too high, but they keep on tempting lots of us back with quality and service and so on.

    i hear the action isn't very good on the volume buttons with one of these cases on. Is this true?
    The button action is kind of stiff to me especially the power button but it's not a issue. It looks great very slim and good protection.

    I'm sure there are nice cases out there that cost less but this Apple case is a perfect fit and feel in my opinion. I really think it's worth $40.

    Tiny abrasive particles can get into the back of the case and over time scratch the phone. And over time the case it self may scratch it. I always use a Zagg shield on the back and let that take any abrasion.

    I have the black case on my space gray iphone 5S. Best fit and feel of any case I have tried. As others have said it is a pain to take off, but other than that it's darn near perfect for me. Just wish that apple made their dock large enough to hold the iphone with their case on it.
