they still scratch to fuck on the top and bottom, basically anywhere the cover isnt present.
i hate that apple have made iphones basically so fragile, its a one drop/one mistake and you need to pay £200 to get it repaired.
mobiles werent like that before they came along.

Ive always used sleeves over cases. Yeah you have to get it out to use but it takes 2 seconds and any drop in a leather case and your covered. Plus they look nicer. My Hermes one was brilliant but fucked if Im forking out 250 every phone upgrade so now I'm on the five on using Makr quality hand crafted cases. http://makr.com/

It's a nice case but no way would I buy it ever again. Better off getting card holder or something that's going to last you years, the case itself would last but 2 years later I'm using a different phone and its useless. Waste. Women loved it aswell, had several come ask me what it was and got talking from there so it had some return Smiling

Not a fan of this particular style of case, but some Smythson cases are 70% off right now. Only iPhone 4 and Blackberry though…

Yeah it's quite an old thing, I've only recently saw it and it wasn't put on the thread so just posted it up.

Just got an iPhone 5 3 days ago on EE and have used it mainly on wifi. I've done a little browsing on 4g but nothing data heavy. My useage is showing about 500 mb in this time which seems absurdly high especially considering my monthly allowance is only 3 gigs. Has anyone else had this problem? EE customer service is useless Evil

Anyone had experience with replacing a smashed screen, simple enough?
