Just recently, we featured a review about the Jisoncase Vintage Real Leather Smart Cover for the iPad. Now, we are covering yet another case from the same manufacturer, but this time we would be talking about their Genuine Leather Folio for the iPhone 5 and 5S, with the latter just being announced a few days back.
For those not familiar with the brand, Jisoncase was founded in 2001 with the goal of creating products to protect the technologies that are essential to our lives. According to the company’s website, their offerings are all designed to meet the many needs of individuals across all walks of life, all having varying interests, professions and passions. They are headquartered in Guangzhou, China with offices in Los Angeles, Beijing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Sydney.
The Jisoncase Genuine Leather Folio for the iPhone 5 and 5S is, as with most of the company’s products, is handcrafted and is made from natural cow leather. It offers an all-around protection for your beloved smartphone, with the cutouts placed accurately to not interfere with operating your device.
The exterior of the folio case, being 100% cowhide, offers a unique texture with aged appearance. As such, the case is very much fit for those looking for a more professional-looking iPhone case that exudes an aura of sophistication and class. It also features an integrated volume button rocker, is dustproof and being made of genuine leather, is very durable in practical use. The edges are trimmed clean and very sleek.
Inside, your iPhone is shielded from scratches and minor shocks with an interior pattern made from top quality microfiber. Dimensions of the case are 13.6cm x 7.2cm x 1.55 cm and weighs just 34grams. In actual usage, the case does not add much heft to your iPhone’s thin form factor. It is priced at $59.99 and available in brown and black.
Using the folio case for a few weeks now, we could conclude that it functions and feels as advertised by Jisoncase. It is very durable, very classy and very professional, perfect to go along with your corporate meetings and luncheons. Though the hinge-like that holds the cover from the case has been loosen up but still it fits perfectly when it folds.
The built-in speaker hole on the folio’s flip cover is also very useful in taking calls, as the user is given the option to either flip open the cover or use as it is. No magnets were built into the case, so whenever the folio is oriented sideways, the cover tends to open. However in practical use we found this to be a minor issue. Plus, its larger opening avoids any issues with adapter.
All in all, we recommend the Jisoncase Genuine Leather Folio to those looking for a unique and premium case for your iPhone. Price is a bit steep at $59.99, but compared to other iPhone cases in the market today, we believe that this is a good buy due to its sheer quality and design.
