Pros: The Sewell Monk iPhone 5S Case is an interesting take on a case combo wallet for the iPhone 5S. In this review, I will highlight my experience with the case for the past few weeks. I’m a big fan of the design of this case. It has the look of a book, complete with a spine with “bumps” as you would find on an old book. It’s made of a leather-like material, which is durable and holds up to wear and tear (at least in the first few weeks of use so far). Inside, you’ll find the actual iPhone case, which is simple, made out of black plastic, and is simply there to keep your phone in place. Also, on the inside flap, there’s a wallet, complete with room for 3 cards, 1 ID window pocket, and inner pocket for storing bills. Although I like how the design looks, I found some annoyances with the way the case functions. First off, the front does fold back to reveal the phone, but because of the rigid spine of the book design, it doesn’t fold back flat. This means when folded back, the back is thick, and it makes typing and using the phone slightly difficult. This gets further complicated when holding it up to your ear make a call. Second, there’s no way to keep the case closed completely. The front flap has no latch or magnet to keep it in place, so unless there’s some weight on top of it, it hangs open. Think of a book that has been kept open; when you go to close the front cover, it will stay slightly open. This leaves the phone slightly exposed if you were to toss it in a bag, or in your pocket, leading to possible scratches depending on what else is along with it (keys, etc). I did find the cutouts of the case to be well-positioned, and large enough, without being too large. The front and bottom are mostly open, and there volume rocker buttons and silent switch are also accessible. I had no issues using the camera with the cutout provided, either. Flash worked well too. That being said, I found the case that holds the phone in place to be slightly flimsy, and when I closed the book, I found that the edge of the case would pop out slightly, which could cause some scratching on the phone. It is also very difficult to remove the phone from the case, so this might pose a problem for those looking to remove the case from time to time. Regarding the wallet portion of the case, I found it well designed and fully functional. I was able to securely store cards and bills in each of the respective pockets. The window for the ID is slightly small, so this isn’t something you can show someone who needs to see your ID without taking it out of the pocket. Overall, the Monk case for the iPhone 5S is a creative solution to combining a wallet with a phone case. While the design is attractive, and the wallet functions well, I found issues with how the phone is used in the case, in addition to removing it.

Pros: Looks nice, functional for replacing wallet

Cons: The ID window portion is not long enough to hold standard drivers license. With the drivers license sticking out, it scratches the phone display. I worked around this by putting a business card in front of the drivers license, but now the window is worthless.

Other: I've been using this case for 9 months. I like it over all, but I would like it better if it had a felt surface to contact with phone display and put all the card slots on the outside of the case.

Looks adorable. I set my wallpaper to artsy book pages and it looks amazing. The card holder pockets are perfect sizes. And it's not bulky
