If you love the look, feel and smell of leather, want a way to protect your iPhone 5S, and want to leave your wallet at home, then the Beyzacases PocketBook for iPhone 5S may be for you. It holds up to 12 different cards, some cash, and a few others items inside while offering an exterior slot for your phone.
The leather used in creating the wallet is gorgeous. That’s not a surprise since we have come to expect Beyzacases to use the best leather available. The build quality is similarly beautiful with accent stitching that adds to the aesthetic appeal of the wallet. The beautiful presentation box and included pouch add to the quality of the product and the enjoyment anyone getting this case will feel.
From the outside, the Beyzacases PocketBook for iPhone 5S looks like a beautiful leather wallet with a single fold. Open it up and you are presented with an excellent interior space with plenty of organization.
Inside you will find three card slots on either side of the wallet. Each slot easily holds a single card and can take up to two each before becoming a bit too bulky. Each side also hides a space that easily holds cash or business cards. It isn’t the largest wallet in the world, but if you need to carry more cards and cash than that you are probably carrying too much.
The exterior of the wallet case has an unassuming slot on one side that sits waiting to be used. You don’t actually NEED to use the slot, but if you choose to do so it is a good fit for a naked iPhone 5/5S/5C. It will also take an iPhone in a minimalist case but it will be a tight fit. It may be hard to visualize what the Beyzacases PocketBook for iPhone 5S looks like when used to hold an iPhone so lets take a look.
Beyzacases PocketBook for iPhone 5S Video Review
The case comes in four different colors!
I have to admit that I’m mixed on this product. I love Beyzacases leather cases; they are always top-quality products, and the leather is always gorgeous. The stitches are always perfectly straight, and the final products are always works of art. That noted … I don’t love this case. As a wallet it works well; as an iPhone case it works well. When used as a wallet and an iPhone case however, it is a bit bulky. Add in the fact that the iPhone case portion of the Beyzacases PocketBook for iPhone 5S doesn’t fully protect the iPhone when it is inside, and it won’t work with an iPhone that is in anything other than the thinnest case possible and this isn’t the most convenient or protective case I have seen. In short… I love the idea of the product but, at the end of the day, I don’t see this as something I would use. You, however, might love it.

What I Like: Gorgeous leather and superb build-quality; Offers “just enough” room for cards and cash; Has an exterior slot for your iPhone
What Needs Improvement: When used with the iPhone the case is a bit on the bulky side; Only works for a naked or lightly encased iPhone; Doesn’t protect the iPhone completely when in the phone is inside
