When I first saw this case, I knew I had to have it. The price made me think twice, but the reviews gave me some confidence.
After receiving it and slotting my phone inside, initial thinking was that it looks amazing, but my phone doesn't quite sit snugly, and the case always seems to want to spring open. After less than a week, the leather seems to form itself flawlessly around the phone, and everything stays well closed.
Even after settling in nicely, I started to worry about damaging it through every day wear and tear. Again, something I needlessly worried about! It actually ages like a fine leather wallet, and looks even more amazing for it!
Although some have complained about having to slide the phone up to take a picture, after seeing how well protected it is, I don't mind doing that at all for the protection it offers. I have never seen the sense in cases that are supposed to offer protection having cutouts for the most fragile and expensive parts.
The inside of the case is simply the backing of leather, suede. It feels gorgeously luxurious, and hasn't left even the faintest mark on my phone. Cards are easy to insert and remove, and I tend to fold cash in half and slot it in. This leaves the edge poking out of the slot, so you can see it and pull it out with ease. I really love that when I leave home, I pick up my phone and keys and I'm set (after suffering the embarrassment before of getting to the check out in Tesco with no cash or cards in my pocket!)
I see strangers staring at it all the time, and friends always ask about it. When I tell them the price, I hear a sharp intake of breath, until they actually handle it. Then I hear "Oh wow" as they see the quality of the stitching, feel the leather and as others have stated, smell it!
After some initial trepidation over the price, I would be very happy to pay twice that now. The workmanship is outstanding, it's so unusual that it has everyone asking about it, and it's obviously designed to last as long as the phone does. I would honestly not change the tiniest thing, and I really am a perfectionist.
Buy it now, and I guarantee you will still look at it in awe well into the future!
Firstly, the stitching leaves permanent marks on the screen, so make sure you have a screen protector on your phone before using the case for the first time.
Secondly, and more concerning, is that the case appears to impact the working of thproximity sensor during calls, and the Siri Raise To Speak functionality. Without the case there are no problems, with the case the keypad remains active and as a result you regularly get Muted or put on Speaker. Unfortunately I will be getting a new case.
Looks a bit like a prayer book so my mum approves. Considered knocking a star off as it doesn't fit on any of our chargers so I have to remove the phone to charge it but that seems a bit mean. You also have to slide the phone out to take photos so it won't suit everyone but I love it.
Otherwise this is good quality and worthwhile item
The case itself is well made, a secure place for my phone and protects it from all the 'stuff' i keep in my handbag. I like that its different from all the other cases you see and the fact it has somewhere for cards & money is an added bonus if i just want to pop to the shops. I love that it looks like an old book and the leather smells lush. All in all, its worth every penny and i would recommend this to anyone
The only drawback is you need to take the phone out of the cover to use the camera properly.
Also just had a thought that being seen carrying a little leather bound 'book' might get you mistaken for one of those religious types who go around knocking on people's doors unexpectedly.
Robust as I know from dropping the phone a couple of times.
The price seems a bit high, although if you want to keep your phone in good shape and for a longer period I would recommend this case. It's an excellent investment!
I also bought "Power Support Crystal Film Set - iPhone 4S / 4". Very easy to apply and the phone fits like a charm in the case. The case has also support for credit/debit cards and has a cool look. I work with security in public and already gotten a lot of compliments from my co-workers and customers.
All i can say, superb quality! It protects your phone from fall damage by the looks of the case. I can't find any errors.
You have easy access to all buttons and connection ports on the phone. The only bad thing about the case is that you have to pull out the phone from the case every time you want to take a photo. Instead I would have put a lens protector on the back which you could slide each time you would like to take a photo so you don't miss your favorite snapshot.
I'm rating the product 5/5 because I love it and would buy it again.
Did you find this helpful?
I did the foolish thing and brought a South BookBook Case for iPhone 4S from ebay £30.00 my initial thoughts were “to good to be true” haha i was right the ebay product came and was complete rubbish although i could see all the benefits of this type of case.
So in the end i decided to go with Mobile Fun I have used them several times before fantastic service, fast delivery and no problem with returns,
The next day the Twelve South BookBook Case was delivered by my trusty old postman.
On opening the package wow what a difference from the ebay version it was a little more than i wanted to pay but all i can say is fantastic you can feel the quality, in my opinion well worth the money holds the phone really well cards and cash to, don’t let the “no camera hole” put you off theres no problem pulling the red tab and sliding the phone up with your thumb
All in all a great product and again a fantastic service from Mobile Fun
The quality is second to non, it's sturdy and has drawn alot of attention when using my phone or paying a bill. What I find the most useful about this product is not having to carry my wallet as well as my phone. I personally fit this combination of wallet/phone case a must have.
Great web site, fantastic and prompt service.
This case is very high quality leather not only does it protect my phone but I can use all the functions as well and also being able to put a picture of my daughter and carry cash and cards I don't have pockets full with phone and wallet it's all in one. This is the third case from mobile fun now and I will highly recommend getting your phone accessories from them.
And mobile fun well what can I say inevitably the best phone accessories supplier out there top quality service and very speedy delivery.
Pros: protects and hides my expensive phone + bank cards
Cons: no camera hole, have to slide the phone out each time to take a picture
It was originally Sold Out when I ordered the Book Book Case - well worth the wait!
When I received my parcel I could not wait to open it and was not disappointed the quality of the leather and stitching its awesome.
The clever ageing of the leather plus gold emboss on the Book Books spine is amazing - open up the case and the clever detail and design is continued inside whats not covered in leather is finished in a high quality valvet feel finishing which protect the iphone.
One side hugs the iPhone safely whilest the other is a functional wallet . And it works well housing 2x credit cards plus picture uk driving Licence and your folding notes.
No need to clutter your pockets with wallet plus case this does it all in one.
Don't bother using another company - I tried one particular company who had a flash web page it turned out to be a tin pot organisation operating from home who made big promises and could not delivery - Mobile Fun did Delivery on Service and Quality Well Done one happy customer :)
Very stylish. Fits perfectly. Speedy delivery great service all
Round thanks mobile fun.
Just can't wait to get the Griffin Surviver cases I ordered for my phone and iPad 2 for work now.
Next was to test how it handles in using the phone. No problems at all. Texting in portait or landscape mode is comfortable. Two thumb typing in portrait mode is more comfortable now on this case than normal cases because of the way you hold the BookBook to text.
There are no problems during phonecalls when using the the phone in this case either. Just fold over the front cover and you got a secure hold on the phone during calls.
Wallet side of the case is functional. 3 card slots which you can use as slots for folded notes of money if they are not needed for cards. There's also a slot for more money if you require it. Overall I found that it is enough for general day use as a wallet.
At the moment I dont see any downsides with this case. Only thing is the price may seem steep for a case but this is a case of "You get what you pay for" and you will not be dissapointed in this case if you do decide to go for it. Iphone5 isn't released for another year yet so at least you know you're going to get another years use out of it!! :)
Also I must say Mobilefun never dissapoints either. I ordered this case at 11am on the standard first class delivery and it came next morning at 1030am!! less than 24 hours!! Brilliant. Keep up the good work guys.
