2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame, 16 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: KAVAJ leather case cover "Dallas" for the Apple iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 black - genuine leather with business card compartment (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I bought a black one for myself about a year ago and a cognac one as a gift a month later. They both look and feel brilliant, particularly the cognac one which looks very luxurious. They also don't make the phone feel at all bulky. Initially they appear to be excellent value too when compared to the overpriced covers in the Apple Store.
Unfortunately the black one started to look shabby after a few weeks. The seams around the screen separated, as did the seams near the camera. The latter problem was sufficient to interfere with the operation of the camera. I contacted Kavaj and they were brilliant at arranging a quick replacement. When it was around six months old the seams on the cognac one started to separate too in exactly the same way. It appears to happen if you carry the phone in the pocket of your jeans, the seams just aren't strong enough to withstand going in/out of tightish trouser pockets. I haven't bothered asking Kavaj to replace the cognac one, we binned it and bought from another manufacturer. We made that decision because the replacement black one was as defective as its predecessors.
This would be my perfect phone cover if only it was more durable. What a shame.
