4.0 out of 5 stars Normally excellent cases 31 July 2014

I love these SGP cases and I always get one to protect my iPhone. I've only given 4 stars though because the front flap on this one has started to fall open. For some reason it doesn't grip my 5s too well so I suppose the front screen will be vulnerable if dropped at the wrong angle. My other SGP leather cases haven't done this and I will happily buy one again the future.

There are no case like those made by SGP, they are the rollroyce of cases.

Great looks, securly fitting and not likely to damage the phone with nasty plastic bits

1.0 out of 5 stars Breathtakingly disappointing... 13 Dec. 2012
By Grayper - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Wow I'm not sure where to begin on this one...For over a year I was a proud owner of the Argos genuine leather case for the iPhone 4 (slightly different style case from the iPhone 4S). Nearly everyone who saw the case asked about it due to its slim, streamlined, luxurious appearance, and the fact that it was made from leather. I can't count how many people I referred to that fine product and I told anyone who would listen about its fine features.

When I upgraded my phone in September to the iPhone 5, I immediately searched for a new version of this case...sadly the cases had not yet been released, but the site promised the product was "coming soon." Feeling "naked" without a case for my phone, i used a small sock as a pouch in which to protect my phone until the Argos was released for the iPhone 5.

After a few short weeks, the new Argos was released, and I anxiously awaited its arrival in the mail... I would also be amongst the first to display the new Argos in action. I tore open the shipping box as quickly as possible, carefully opened the Argos box, and out flopped a black-colored semblance of an iPhone case. I picked up the feather-light, paper-thin (and equally flimsy) case--surely this must have been an item used to hold the product's shape during shipping, much as those cardboard shoe inserts do. I searched the package and found no items other than a user manual of sorts.

Now that I think about it, a cardboard shoe insert is _exactly_ what this product resembles. "Luxurious?" "Genuine leather?" Ive seen better products at the dollar store. This new Argos is flimsy, looks cheap, feels cheap, and is such an utter disappointment that I am embarrassed to have ever sung it's praises. To add insult to injury, you are reminded each and every time you open the case of its inferior quality--the microfiber lining looks like it was cut by a pair of dull safety scissors...and it was probably pasted to the backside with an old jar of school paste...you know, the kind elementary school kids eat for lunch. The front lid will likely last less than 8 months before detaching from the back-side.

I suppose if you never owned the Argos case made for iPhone 4 then you haven't witnessed the differences: simply search for it on Amazon to find its pictures; a side-by-side comparison of the two pictures will show the clear differences in materials used. And believe me, it's ten times worse in person. If there is any real leather used in this new case I have yet to witness it. The exterior is slippery smooth like vinyl. Where is the leather grain on this product? The texture has the same exact precision that only a "handmade" vinyl-covered diner seating booth can provide. Hold the case to the light at an angle--look at the millions of prisms created from the cases's surface, just as your best-made petroleum-based goods will do. The case looks like someone took some thin cardboard and put black shrink-wrap all around it: "ta-da that'll be $40 please!"

And speaking of materials, this off-white "microfiber" lining used in the iPhone 5 version is a complete wasted effort. The only time your screen would come close to touching it is if you bent the front cover into a convex shape (of course, doing so would permanently warp the vinyl-wrapped cardboard case and then what would you do??) The "microfiber" itself looks like it will rub off from friction in a few weeks.

The only reason I still have the case is because I couldn't return it--even if I did the most I would get back is 50% and have to pay to have it shipped back....

Spigen: what have you done to the Argos, and what is this tripe you are trying to pawn off under the same name? It's like Volkswagen removing the name "Jetta" from its cars and replacing it with "Bentley"....we may be suckers, but we're not stupid. As a consumer, I feel insulted. Further, I am embarrassed for recommending this product in the past, and to all my friends, family, and colleagues, please accept my sincerest apologies.

Amazon: please remove this product from your site.

To everyone else: avoid this product like the plague.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 26 Jan. 2013
By Anthony Franco - Published on Amazon.com

I have used the iPhone 4 version of this case for two years and it still holds up. Unfortunately, the iphone 5 version looks and feels cheap and does not stay closed. In fact, it actually fell apart after about two months of use. Sad to see that such a once great product is now a cheap imitation of the original. Junk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spigen wins again! 2 Nov. 2012
By J. Flora - Published on Amazon.com

In deciding upon new cases, I was waiting for the release of the Argos iPhone 5 Case from Spigen, as I have the same case for an iPad and love it. Just as with the iPad case, the new iPhone 5 case fits well but can be easily removed. A welcome feature is that, by flipping the cover down from the case, an adapter will fit without having to remove the case. If you have older devices that now require an adapter on your iPhone 5, this is a good point to keep in mind when selecting a case. The case offers solid protection, an easy surface to grip, and good access to buttons, speakers, and ports. The flip front fits and closes perfectly, allowing complete protection for the phone. It is not magnetic. Note that the cover must be open to charge the phone or allow complete access to the speakers, but it easily flips either all the way back or just in the open position. The flip cover can remain closed and still allow access to the main on/off button, side volume controls, and earphones. The volume level does not seem to be not affected by the partial obstruction of the speakers with a closed cover.

In summary, the Spigen SGP iPhone 5 Case Leather Flip (Argos) is a solidly built, quality product and a good value for the price. It is both attractive and professional in style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slim hard leather looks good 11 Dec. 2012

It looks good. It's a bit thin. It does provide some protection. I was expecting a bit more softness and thickness, but overall I like it.

The case itself is thin...fits the phone perfectly. Looks good...feels good. It provides good protection for basic wear of the phone, but may not suit your needs if dropping the phone is a habit.
