Customer Reviews

Review by Emma
I love the look of my Little Black Book! It has served me well and has protected my phone from many falls. But after two years of heavy usage, the simulated leather has cracked, and the interior binding has split open (the elastic is fine, though). If I had to do it over, I would spend the extra money to buy the Pocket Book since I assume the genuine leather will be more durable. (Posted on 2/22/15)

I've owned two of the Little Black Book cases for two different versions of iPhone. Really happy with the quality and love the look. I get comments all the time and refer people to this site. My second one finally wore out after a couple years of aggressive use, so I graduated to the notebook style, real leather, and it just arrived today. I love the new one even more! (Posted on 9/3/14)
Review by Christine
It is a very well made case. Bought my case back in 2012. Got tons of compliments from people. It is durable and definitely protects my phone. I use it quite harshly too, plus with 2 kids grabbing my phone to play. Now I am ready to get a new one, a different color this time. And I love that it is made in USA :) (Posted on 8/20/14)
Review by Shivi
I've had the case for just under 2 years and it could go a little longer, only problem is the elastic, it's all stretched out now :( such a simple problem but it means the case isn't fully closed and doesn't look good. If they could make a way to easily replace the elastic it would be great. (Posted on 7/15/14)
Review by BRANman
I have had The Little Black Book for iPhone on my iPhone 5 for about a year and a half now. In that time it has functioned perfectly and attracted MANY unsolicited comments from friends and complete strangers...all of the comments have been VERY FAVORABLE. I have given Pad & Quill's name and web address to several folks.

What makes this case less than perfect for me is the fact that it doesn't allow the complete use of the flash (I thought that that would not be an annoyance, but SOMETIMES it is) and the fact that it is made of "simulated" leather. The "simulated" leather is definitely beginning to show that it is simulated; on the outer cover the two areas where the case folds is cracking and showing the base material underneath and the area where I pull on the elastic is showing nicks in the cover surface from my thumb nail.

I really don't need any pockets in my phone case, but when I update my iPhone next fall I will probably get the Little Pocket Book because I occasionally need full functionality from the flash and I prefer a leather cover. There is nothing that I know of on the market now that would make me want switch from Pad & Quill products. (Posted on 3/6/14)
