Bottom Line: The Leather Wallet case for iPhone 5/5S from Dodo is a very sturdy portfolio style case with an extra insert on the front for credit card storage. In spite of the name, it is only partially made of leather. The back is made with a thick cardboard and plastic frame. The result is a super heavy duty iPhone wallet. Highly Recommended.

This Dodo leather wallet case for the iPhone 5 and 5S is almost a perfect case. While exceedingly well made, a few small things keep it from being my case of choice. The main issue is the bulk; the leather used is super thick, yet pliable. This means durability as this leather will be nearly impossible to destroy, but that also adds to the overall thickness and width of the case.

The back of this case has a very sturdy feel and includes a frame that solidly holds an iPhone 5 or 5S and a heavy cardboard backing. The super-thick leather flap feels like it’s never going go fall off. The curve in the spine of the case is almost the perfect size to stash a pen, if needed. The wallet portion easily holds three cards and a couple folded bills. Though in a stretch one might be able to fit a couple more in there without too much bulk. Even with the frame and flap, there is still access to the power button, headphone port, and Lightning connector. The volume and mute buttons are hidden behind the flap when closed.

The DodoCase Leather Wallet ends up being a great wallet phone case that allows users to consolidate two of the bulkier items everyone carries with them. Highly Recommended.
